Buzzing from tv

This tv is a Crosley but that wasn't an option when chosing a make. The tv just started buzzing. It stops sometimes after awhile. What may be wrong?

If the TV is working normal otherwise then most likely you have a A.C. transformer or choke that is vibrating at 60hz or what they call the deflection yoke is buzzing. Niether issue is easy to get rid of. If the buzz is comming from the speakers, make sure you have the connections to the TV are correct.

It sounds like you had a leak which sometimes happens when not used for awhile and if so you would need to get it recharged and the leakage area located and fixed.

My crosley portable turn table will start but half way into a record it stops spinning; please advise

There is a small motor under the turntable that either uses a belt to turn it or has a rubber tired roller that sets up against it and spins. You will probably be able to find a belt or rubber wheel at a TV repair shop. Some models had an adjustment on them and can be adjusted but more than likely you will need a new belt or rubber tire. The tires looj like a big square :O: Ring

Our Viking range is all of a sudden making a buzzing/humming noise. It comes and goes as the unit is on. It seems to start when it reaches a certain temp. then it stops for awhile. Do you know what it...

If it comes from the control panel, it may be a transformer for the control electronics or a relay coil. Sometimes a relay or transformer mounted on sheet steel will vibrate if a mounting screw works loose. That's easy to fix. Occasionally a coil inside the relay or transformer will develop a loose winding - the best repair for that is get a new one.

If the buzzing is specific to one (electric) burner, it could be arcing at a bad connection.

Pink and green lines are starting to appear that are moving up the screen TV is buzzing after being on for awhile. TV is not even a year old.

Try unplugging everything other than the TV and the cable (or whatever service you have) and while your tv is on, plug everything back in separately. I did this and found that while my ps3 was plugged in, I caught interference on my cable TV. Also, make sure that any cords behind the TV aren't all jumbled. Sometimes having a bunch of twisted up wires can cause interference.
