Re: My TV shut off and will not come on

This is an issue with one of your power supplys wether it be high voltage horizontal power supply or the reg power supply. The beeping noise is letting you know that it has some power but not enough to start the high voltage needed to create the picture on your tube. I would seek professional help for this issue.

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.

A shorted horizontal output transistor or shorted flyback. If the flyback is shorted replace also its HOT.

No Picture

Rarely picture tube also shows the same symptom. High pitch sound is due to through deflection area LOT power supply is loaded. Compulsary horizontal output transister short. From your statement i think Lot puncture takes place. Change LOT and horizontal output transister and check tv is now working.

TV will not turn on.

A high pitched whine is most of the time the power supply trying to run, but it is being loaded down from a short somewheres in the set. Sometimes a resistor on the CRT board will open and make the set shut down right after start up, sometimes the horizontal output transistor causes this problem, almost any circuit for that matter can cause this problem. Good Luck
