Question about Toshiba Televison & Video
This TV has worked fine for a while until the last 6 months. 6 months ago, it made a high pitch sound when I turned it on but the audio from the speakers was fine & not distorted. But the picture was distorted in that I could not see the video..but I could barely make out the channel numbers & menu a little. I turned the set off & back on again. It worked & I had clear picture & sound. It happened again almost a month later so I decided to unplug the HDMI cable & the high pitch noise stopped. I plugged the HDMI back in, I was using a HD cable box at the time, and turned TV off/on & it was fixed once again. I decided to save some cash & got a regular digital cable box since then. During the 6 months, the problem would happen more frequently & sometimes required me to turn the TV off/on more than several times to get the high pitched noise to stop & the picture to return. Now I've been trying to get it to work for almost a week now. I've tried leaving the set unplugged for a day, then for two days with the same result. Any help is appreciated

Ok maybe this may help .... there is a coil LL08 I believe... somtimes it creates a high pitch whine like you describe.. its stands up on the deflection board..it basicaly a large coil of copper wire....you can take silcon and put on the coil...in effect damping the ocillations...hope that might help

Go to Samsung.com for solution. There is a switch that just needs to be repositioned behind access door on rear. Fixed my HL-S5086W ok.

The high-pitched whine is definitely the color wheel. The early color wheels had problems and many had to be replaced. As part of the turn-on process, the TV checks for light and then checks for color wheel sync. If the bearings are wearing out/dried out, it could cause issues with getting the proper color wheel sync, causing the set to not pass the turn on sequence.
Check Sears or partstore.com for a color wheel. I like sears for experimental replacements since they allow easy returns.
BTW, mine is an early 61". My color wheel was replaced when I had to replace my Light Engine. My in-laws 50" was an early one and theirs went out within 2 years.

Usualy these problems are due to solder evaporating under the heat of the component.If you are a competent technician,by opening the tv set and by looking closely on the solder part of the board,
you should see a few that are not as shiny as the other, or look like a donut around the pin.these should be redone.those failiure are around the components that heat up:voltage reg,h-v reg and the
resistor around them.
