I think you have a bad flyback transformer and shorted horizontal output transistor. The flyback (high voltage) transformer shorted and caused the transistor to short. You need to get a tech to check it for you and get an estimate. The noise you hear is the power supply singing telling you that it has a short on it's load. Stargazer

Kenmore elite microwave 79203 buzzes when off

It sounds like you have a shorted cook relay on your control circuit board.

That can usually be repaired more economically than replacing the circuit board.

My magnavox tv is making a buzzing sound, no picture, and wont change channels (just a dark screen)

Something has shorted in the set causing the power supply to make that buzzing sound. Most likely the short is in the horizontal circuit. The horizontal makes the high voltage work which in turn lights the picture tube.

Samsung HLN507WX lamp not coming on.

The Ballast is the next logical step but more often the Color Wheel has gone bad. Try this first. Make sure that the Lamp Door has been reinstalled and the screw has been tightened.
Next while you are at the back of the set listen for a short buzzing sound while you turn ON the set with the remote or have another person turn it on. If you hear a short buzzing sound then your Ballast is ok. The reason the lamp does not turn on is because if the Color Wheel does not spin up then the Digital bd will not let the set turn on. Color Wheel part# is BP96-00250A. Ballast part# is BP47-00008A

A shorted horizontal output transistor or shorted flyback. If the flyback is shorted replace also its HOT.

Loud Buzzing Sound

This may be a power supply failure, and or a short in the output stage, and in the drivers for the output stage.

This is not a repair you can do at home unless you have a lot of experience in troubshooting and analysing problems in power amplifier equipment.
