I had the same problem....but it kept taking longer and longer for it to quiet down, then eventually it just kept whining and I couldn't take it anymore...I had to stop using it for tv and only used it for DVDs (it didn't whine on the dvd function). I was going to get rid of the unit because my old tv died and I had to buy a new flat screen high-def unit, which needs a surround system to do it justice. I then noticed the digital optical connection on the Sony DAV-FC7 as well as my new Direct TV HD-DVR. I bought the optical cable for about $15 and hooked it up....and voila...NO MORE WHINE! If you have the optical connection option....try that might work for you as it did for me. Good luck

LG LFX25991ST Linear Compressor Frig has started making a noticeable audible (vibrating?) noise.

There are instances where the compressor can come loose inside its housing. That is not an indication that it is going to totally fail and it has no effect other than the noise. The fan noise would be louder inside the fridge. It would be a squeal.

My system power is intermittent. Won't turn on at times.

Make sure all cords are properly connected if so then their might be a problem with the wiring... try moving the wiring up and down, and see if the power turns on when you do that.....

My 1995 Dodge Durango has a squeal at the front of the engine. It only squeals after the engine is at temp and then only at idle. It will quiet down if I drive some distance but if I stop at a light it...

What engine?????? Take the belt off, the tensioner should have full travel and smooth, If its drags, its bad. Ck the pulleys, they shoul dspin easy without any noise, feel them as you turn them with your hand, if they feel rough, replace them. If the PS pulley isnt aligned, it will squeal.
