    Noise will eventually cause serious damage. Yes it will screech to a halt and die. Either bearings are worn out (GE) or something is stuck between the two tubs. Would have to know the make to solve further

Loud ticking noise coming from rotating drum


Most certainly not worth the repair cost. You can get a new VCR for about 25 dollars. If you take it apart you will be able to see what is going on inside to cause this. I am thinking a belt is off or ready to break.

When I play my Toy Story 3 blu ray it is fine audio wise to start with but as soon as the film starts there is a very loud screech and distortion noise. This doesn't happen to any other blu ray we have....


it's a problem with the player's firmware, try hitting the audio button on your LG remote twice. i think it defaults to 7 channel sound, you can also try the sound settings on the DVD. had the same problem with my toy story 3.

Our tv is Samsung DLP HL-P4663W 46 in. Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television After having our TV on for about 45 minutes it starts to make this hissing sound which starts low and gets louder and louder,...


hello
This looks like a colorwheel symptom, does the sound is like a mechanical sound? high pitch sound? winding, whirling or screeching noise ? well if this is the color wheel, what i think it is, it seems that it is not working properly when this happens the DMD board recognizes that it is not spinning at the correct RPM and turns off the Tv for sercurity reasons, so if you want to replace this yourself what i recommend you to do is to open the back of the Tv and search for the colorwheel it can have missing parts or it could be shattered or it could not spin correcty, hope this info. can help you.

My mustang is smoking and making a screeching sound.


You have a Bad Belt Tensioner and will need a new one and Possibly a new Belt. Have the Alternator Checked also. It could have gone Bad during these Problems. If the Tensioner is Not keeping the Belt very Tight it will not allow the Alt. To charge the Battery and it will drain very fast.

GE Model WHDSR209D2WW makes unbearable loud metal Screeching noise


ppr78, couple of things you want to check. The bottom panel on these GE's are pretty flimsy. I have run into a couple where during agitation the bottom of the motor housing would rub against the bottom panel making a terrible noise. You need to remove the front panel by pusing on the clips on the left and right side just under the top. The front panel will pull out. During agitation, take your foot and push down on the bottom panel and see if the screech goes away. I have also found the suspension rod support sockets at the top dry out and make a screeching noise. You also want to check your belt and pully and see if the noise is from there. Check these things first...Catriver..post back.
