Question about Memorex MT2271 27" TV
As the TV was on, it just turned off all by itself and then started to make this repeated cricket like sound. The TV won't turn back on by either remote or manually on in the TV. It was unplugged for a few minutes and as soon as we turned it back on, the repeated cricket like sound started up again & the TV will not come on. What does this mean?
Could also be the sound of some sparking. Before you trash the TV, or call a technician, try this. unplug the set. Open the back cover of the set, and now plug it and switch ON. Stay a little away and observe if you can see some sparking. If yes, try to localise it. Unplug the set and then wait for a few minutes and then see what is causing the sparking. Clean that area, as it could be because of some foriegn object (I have seen small rodents, lizards, etc) entering the set and getting fried. Clean it up and try the set again.

It means that the TV set has a short in it somewhere. The sound you hear is the power supply trying to start up and shutting down. Most likely the Horizontal output transistor shorted because of a bd high voltge flyback transformer went bad. Common problem for these types of sets. Good Luck
