18 Mo old Samsung CXM2785TP made high pitched noise and lost power

My set is 18 months old and has had very light usage as it is in a garage apt and has averaged 6-10 hrs of use per week. Today it made a high pitched sound and then i lost power. Neither remote nor TV power button will turn the TV on. Does anyone have any idea what the issue is and if the repair is worth the value of the TV?

The high pitch sound could have been the flyback transformer. check the horzontal output transsitor if is gone the tranfomer is sure to be gone . Tranformers are varying in price are the transistors can also vary you could be looking at around 150.00 plus labour.

My samsung tv ps50b430p2wxxu screen is having problems. when i turn it on its very bright for a few minutes and then comes rite but then after watching for a while it might get very bright again. picture...

sounds like a power supply problem or something that affects brightness is drawing too much current--not a do it yourself fix and price a repair estimate to see if worth fixing or not.

Some of the Samsung sets did have a issue known where the picture flickers with scene changes etc.

That is on the power board and in some cases a jumper on that board needs to be removed-----design flaw well known.

The vcr writing on the tv screen says "SAP" and the sound won't play. How do I turn SAP off?

SAP means Secondary Audio Programme. To cancel this, you have to get into the Minu of your TV, and surf through to get the SAP display window. There you have to set the SAP of OFF. For more details go to the user manual of your TV. OK.

A piercing high pitched buzzing noise when on. The sound volumne does not affect the buzzing. Always very loud.

You didn't post a model number but if this is a CRT TV (non-flat screen) the noise may be coming from the high voltage circuit and may be a warning sign of failure in the near future.

TV making high pitch noise, stop working.

It must be the horizontal output transistor, it maybe short circuited. A short in flyback.

High pitch buzzing and no picture

Your power supply, I mean the internal power suppy could be faulty, if you know how to deal with it, check it for abnormal oscillation, or get some help from someone who knows how to repair it.

High-pitched noise when I turn on the tv

No I think your problem is the horizontal output transistor blew out an that was a result of the flyback transformer going out or blowing up.. Good Luck TO you.
