High pitched buzzing

I have a fairly new television from Sylvania. Ever since I purchased it, it often has a high pitched buzzing sound that is very disturbing. I would like to know what may be the cause of this and if there is a way to fix this.

Re: High pitched buzzing

Most likely this is your flyback transformer making this sound, suggest you take it in before warranty runs out.  Some of these sets only have 90 day labor warranty but have 1 year parts.

Re: High pitched buzzing

It happens with some television speakers..There seems to be excessive hiss and buzz at high volumes if its happening even at low volume then check your tv's signal reception(ask ur connection service provider for help)If this doesnt fix the problem since the product is in its warranty period just drop into a service center and they will fix it for you

There is a constatnt high pitch buzzing noise that will not stop, there is no volume coming from the set, just th buzzing.

Sounds like theres a blown resistor on the sound board. When a resistor goes out you get a buzz through the speakers. Most t.v.'s also go into protection mode and shut off after a few secconds. You can take it to a t.v. repair shop. It wont cost as much as it would to buy a new t.v. and they usally warranty their work.
