Weird noise over everything

The TV will be fine then all of a sudden it will have a high pitch ting(like i high pitch buzz) over everything that it is on. I have turned the equalizer all the way to each side to see if its the speaker and it does it on both. The weird thing is that it will be fine for a while and start to make the noise. I'll get use to the sound and then it will go away, then come back again? It is a HDTV and I have it hooked up to a standard definition cable box and tivo box. Could that be the problem?

Re: Weird noise over everything

According to the Samsung website: "The high pitched sound you hear is probably coming from the flyback transformer. The flyback transformer converts the relatively low voltage electricity that comes from the outlet in your home to the high voltage electricity needed to drive the cathode ray tube in your TV. It is not unusual for a flyback transformer to buzz softly when it operates. However, if the sound is loud and high pitched, it probably means the transformer is failing. To eliminate the sound, you will have to get your TV serviced."

Re: Weird noise over everything

The problem is not with the Audio. It is coming from the capacitators on the main PCB. A tech opened up our set and reproduced the noise by slightly moving the capaicators (with a stick of some sort). Instantly, the high-pitch ring started. This problem has since came back on thew new PCB and seems problematic with the type of TV/Samsung.

A loud buzzing is coming from the back of my sanyo ds 25390 tv. picture and regular sound is fine

If it is a high pitched whine or buzz it is likely a transformer vibrating so hard it is making the noise.

There are ways to try to deal with this issue but the set has to be opened and probed to locate where it is coming from--

for example with back off and set on a plastic rod can be used to touch areas and exert slight pressure until the sound changes or goes away--then either replace the part or I have used hot glue etc to stop it.

You first have to locate the source of the issue:

find where it is coming from.

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.

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?

High-pitched noise

Most of the time it is just a coil or the high voltage transformer itself that is vibrating causing the noise. The high voltage trasformer has an iron core that goes through the center of it and there is usually a giant clip to hol it together. That clip ometimes is loose causing the vibration. Usually you can listen for the sound when the back is off (careful there is 30,000 volts present while in operation and the tube holds a charge even when off) and press on different coils near the transfomer with a long plastic tool (no metal to avoid shorting components out). When you find the one that is the most sensitive with the slightest touch you can usually apply hot glue or silicone over it (with TV off and unplugged) and let it sit for a while. Good luck and be safe.
