Question about Emerson EWF2703 27" TV

1 Answer

High-pitched noise My tv makes a high-pitched buzzing noise for the first twenty or thirty minutes that it is on. It will quit suddenly or sometimes when I change the channel it will quit. Is there a way I can fix this myself? I don't want to pay to have this tv repaired. It was $248 three years ago and has been making this buzzing noise for the last year or so. It's very annoying. I don't think I will ever buy another Emerson!

Re: high-pitched noise

Most of the time it is just a coil or the high voltage transformer itself that is vibrating causing the noise. The high voltage trasformer has an iron core that goes through the center of it and there is usually a giant clip to hol it together. That clip ometimes is loose causing the vibration. Usually you can listen for the sound when the back is off (careful there is 30,000 volts present while in operation and the tube holds a charge even when off) and press on different coils near the transfomer with a long plastic tool (no metal to avoid shorting components out). When you find the one that is the most sensitive with the slightest touch you can usually apply hot glue or silicone over it (with TV off and unplugged) and let it sit for a while. Good luck and be safe.

When my rca 36F530 tv is plugged in it makes a high pitched buzzing noise picture does not come on

There is a short circuit in the high voltage circuit. the transformer who helps to create the high voltage or his power transistor is damage. replacement needed. the repair is not expensive, because the parts are average repair. Ask for an estimate.

High pitch buzzing.

Hi there
Let's make ur problem a bit clear. "white lines" how? where?
meaning retrace lines with full raster or a single vertical line?
buzzing sound? without even turning the power switch of the TV to "ON" or when u just plug the power cord?
I'll check for schema, mean while can u tell me where the resistor leads to? is it a fusible resistor? if so , to which area the resistor suppliers power?

Weird noise over everything

According to the Samsung website: "The high pitched sound you hear is probably coming from the flyback transformer. The flyback transformer converts the relatively low voltage electricity that comes from the outlet in your home to the high voltage electricity needed to drive the cathode ray tube in your TV. It is not unusual for a flyback transformer to buzz softly when it operates. However, if the sound is loud and high pitched, it probably means the transformer is failing. To eliminate the sound, you will have to get your TV serviced."

Occasional 'whistling/whining' from back of TV

I wonder if there is enough air circulating around your equipment?? My DVD recorder makes a sound unless I open the doors on the cabinet that contains all of my equipment. The cable company says it is a fan to cool down the units.
