Re: high pitch sound for Sony FD Trinitron WEGA...

The high pitch squeal you hear is usually caused by a coil vibrating, normally in the horizontal circuit. I've also seen the ferrite bead on the horizontal output transistor do this, but, it is rare. I normally will repair this by finding the coil and "tightening" it. To tighten a coil, technicians use different chemicals, such as, a hot glue gun, rubber silicone or even finger nail polish. I will find the coil that screams by starting with the usual suspects and using a wooden dowel, barely touch the coil and if the pitch of the noise changes, then, thats the coil that needs repaired. If you do not know your way around the inside of a television, I never recommend you do so, since, this procedure must be done with the set turned on and you poke your hands around the inside of the set by the high voltage circuit. Hope this helps your decision.

My remote worked fine, but suddenly won't work at all. TV is older Sony Wega 24" Trinitron (KV-24FS100). The satellite remote will change the channels, cause it's using the box, but it won't control...

Could be the IR receiver in the TV.
Make sure nothing is in front of the TV that would block the IR from receiving commands from the remote, I've seen customers put VHS tapes on the front of their TV that caused the remote to not to work.

Good luck

Super high pitch whistle from tv, only powering it off helps.

Shut it off and unplug. You have a serious HIGH VOLTAGE problem that could cause a fire. Professional repair needed.

KV-36XBR450, FD Trinitron WEGA

Hello maymet,

This sounds like the HV protection circuit is cutting off the TV due to a high current event in the set. This could be a problem in the High Voltage section of your TV (Horizontal output transistor, Integrated High Voltage Transformer, and y of the deflection components, and or the CRT in cases of shorts).

I would suggest that if you do not have a background in electronics, you should have an experienced TV technician troubleshoot and repair this problem.
This is due to the nature of the dangerous voltages that are present in the television.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Sound Problem

There's a possibility that you may be experiencing problems with the audio output IC -IC404 - All serial numbers produced until July 2003 might use one of these defective IC's. So if your set was manufactured before this date, that is probably the culprit. If not, and you have it connected to a cable box that has its own volume control, it could be that its volume is turned down and by turning up the TV's volume too high that you are getting this distortion. Hope that helps.
