From the symptoms you describe, it seems the high voltage
flyback autotransformer has failed along with the horizontal amplifier (they
are slaved to each other). The sound comes from the flyback unit.
Well, the only way to solve this is to get a technician take a look at the set,
I'm afraid. Repairs could cost upto $100 or more, depending upon the number of
components that need to be replaced,
It may be worth getting fixed up. If you decide to do so,
call around, as shops have different rates and different expertise.
Hope that helps!
