Question about Televison & Video
Hi, I experienced a freak lightning storm while gone at work and now my 42" LG LCD TV will not turn on. When I plug it in, it makes a high pitched noise and the power button stays lit (red). When I press the power button to turn it on, the TV does not respond. Can anyone tell me if my TV is repairable? Or is it a total loss?

how old is your plasma TV? try check the switch / volume of the sound settings.. Sometimes, when you always increase the volume, it will tend to alter the limit of sound and causing the sound to provide sound undesiredness. I suggest to check it with a liscensed technician.

This might be from the IHVT (Integrated High Voltage Transformer), or more specifically a short in the IHVT causing it to arc, producing the high pitched whine, you are hearing. Take the back off of the TV and try to detect where the sound is coming from, more then likely you will notice it coming from the section that contains a large component with a large red cable coming from it, to the top of the CRT (picture tube). Replace the IHVT (with the exact same model) if it is bad.
I hope this helps,
