Question about Samsung TX-R2779H 27" TV

1 Answer

High pitched squeal from TV

My 1 1/2 year old Tx-R2779 has been emitted a very loud, high pitched squeal for the last month or two. It just started to this recently and only did it every once and a while. Now it does it after the TV has been on for more than 5 min.

Any advice? I'd hate to have this die on me.

Get a small wood/plastic stick and touch the different coils/transformers to see which one is the cause. Replace part or if the part doesn't run hot, use a small amount of hot melt to quiet. Don't completely encapsulate in glue, don't want to create any hazards.

its your secondary air pump. it turns on in the cold morning to inject more air into your exhaust, something about emission. its normal to be high pitched. once on my car it was way loud, i looked and the hose had disconnected. either way its normal if its not super loud. but if its everyone is looking at me loud then check for loose hoses!

High pitched squeal


Does the squeal come from the TV cabinet or the speaker?
If from the cabinet , it's most likely the Horizontal high-voltage section of the set.
Find someone that's good with hand tools,unplug the set from the wall outlet, let it sit for a good 30 minutes.
have someone open up the back of the set and dust out and vacuum out any dust from inside the set.
Put back together and try it out.

New High Pitch sound

If the sound is from the compressor, the unit is likely under warranty...generally 5 years.  If the unit is frozen up and the sound is from a fan that is hitting ice, defrost the unit completely.  Other fans in the unit could also be squealing.  You'll have to be a detective.
