Your sets use CRT technology and the whistling is probably caused by the failure of the high voltage supply which operates at ultrasonic frequencies and normally should not be audible at all. When the frequency falls to the point of being heard, the circuit is no longer producing the high voltage needed by the CRTs.
Not knowing your sets, I can't say whether the HV supply is separated from the main supply or not but you should be able to determine this by opening the back of the unit and visually tracing wiring and cables from origins to the CRT area. If it is separate, then a call to the US Hitachi customer service should get you the cost of a replacement or repair.

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.

Television won't power up


It sounds like the high voltage circuit got damp and arced. This arc caused the horizontal output transistor to short.
You might try replacing the output transistor if you're experienced in this type of repair. If not then you need to take it to a repair shop.
The "whistle " you're hearing is the power supply indicating that it has a short on its load. When the power supply has an over load (short) its frequency drops down when your ear can hear it oscillating. This type of power supply is a switching power supply normally operating a several thousand hz(cycles) which is out of range of human hearing.
