I have an Advent Progressive Scan HD TV with pitching noise. The problem is that this TV makes a pitching noise when I turn it on, sort of like a cricket (animal) noise. Only when I turn it on is when it...

The noise is the power supply trying to raise the output voltage, but the output is shorted to ground by some cicuit. The horizontal output transistor is somewhat common problem, but could be something other. Not too hard for a shop to diagnose, but probably over $100-$150 to repair.

When my rca 36F530 tv is plugged in it makes a high pitched buzzing noise picture does not come on

There is a short circuit in the high voltage circuit. the transformer who helps to create the high voltage or his power transistor is damage. replacement needed. the repair is not expensive, because the parts are average repair. Ask for an estimate.

My 19 inch ge tv makes buzzing noise can it be

I've had this happen on a couple of TVs, it's always been from moisture getting into the back of the TV. I've been told by a few techs that the issue is beyond economical repair on older televisions.

Loud buzzing noise when turning on

It sounds like a bad internal connection or a component failing. If the picture still is very good take it to a known good repair shop.

High pitch buzzing.

Hi there
Let's make ur problem a bit clear. "white lines" how? where?
meaning retrace lines with full raster or a single vertical line?
buzzing sound? without even turning the power switch of the TV to "ON" or when u just plug the power cord?
I'll check for schema, mean while can u tell me where the resistor leads to? is it a fusible resistor? if so , to which area the resistor suppliers power?

Sanyo tv ds25390 buzzing sound

I had the same problem with the same model.
The solution was to replace a capacitor, C622, which is located near
a small blue rectangular plastic component.
This component is a relay that is controlled by C622. I paid $2.39 for
the part, $8.99 for S&H for a total of $11.38. This fixed my problem!
