Re: High Pitch Sounds

In this model the horizontal drive coil vibrates and makes a high pitch squeal. Most times it is intermitent. Touching on the coil with something (non electrical, like wood) will make it stop or change it's pitch. The fix my shop uses: It's not to technical, but, we put fingernail polish around the coil. It's a remedy I've used for decades and has always worked. Some shops use a hot glue gun. With the back open you can hear the coil to locate it. When fixing the problem have the set unplugged. When a technician is working on a television while it's plugged in. He uses only one hand and stays away from the high voltage.

High pitch sound from 50" projection TV monitor. It's not either fan unit, because that's what it sounds like. I have disconnected both fans and the noise is still there.


If its a hi pitch sound chances are its not recognizing the source or signal- try reconnecting cables and setting programs on the projection tv-

Keep us posted- thanks!

High pitch sound

If the sound goes away when you turn it off, its the colorwheel. If it keeps running for another 1-2 minutes (cooldown) then its a fan. Both are changeable by a technical person, the colorwheel being much more intensive disassembly. Let me know if you need help there.
