Re: tv not working

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

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.

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

TV won't turn on.

The buzzing sound could be due to either a bad filter capacitor in the power supply or a shorted component further down the line keeping the power supply from running at the correct frequency.

No picture, buzzing sound

It sounds like the horizontal output transistor may be shorted....Can you feel any static charge on the face of the pix tube?

Will not turn on

This set likely has a shorted horizontal output transistor q4401 part #223942. There are many po9ssible causes for this. the most likely is a defective flyback transformer t4401 part #223952. If cr4106 is shorted q4401 will be destroyed at turn on. Also bad solder connections at t4301 can cause q4401 to fail.
