    It is not just a high pitch whistle, but sounds like R2D2 got stuck on his highest pitch and it hurts your repaired cavities and calls in the neighbor's dogs. Terrible, but if you wait about a minute, it goes away, unless you turn it to a different imput mode, then it comes back for a minute.

I have an RCA model D52W26. The green light comes on when powered on but turns off within seconds. No picture, no sound. Just a squealing noise then nothing. Any thoughts on a fix?

Making whistle noise on off on run and stopping.

There are basically two types of whistle noises.

* Whistle when you get more gas (increase RPM, put gas pedal, sometimes just idling but louder when you put more gas)
This usually intake-side leak.
Intake manifold itself, intake manifold gasket (most likely), even airfilter housing, Airflow meter housing (connector), anything where air goes to engine.
usually engine get rough or unstable idle when intake leak occur.
Engine knocking or pinging may feel.

* Whistle when you decrease RPM (engine brake, reduce speed, sometimes just idling but louder when it dropping RPM)
This usually Vacuum-side leak.
There are many vacuum hoses in engine room. even inside of cabin (heater control, etc)
Try to spot where it coming from.
Vacuum also connected to Brake servo, heater control and spark timing.

Put metal or plastic pipe (small PVC pipe will work fine) to one of your ear then isolate source of noise and find where it come from.

The noise you hear must be from its back-light inverter board. The ferrite core in the inverter transformer may make a high whistling noise and will be annoying. Contact any technician. It can be stopped by gluing. But is a skilled work.

TV comes on n goes off,does 3 times

This is the Famous 3 strikes and out for RCA's--it tries to come on 3 times and if fails shutdown occurs.

The high pitched sound may be a short or could be something arcing--if the sound comes from near the very front of set--could be the HV splitter this set has arcing.

Whining noise

The problem i had was when i would play my tv. I had it hooked from my dish to the sony then the tv. When i played a dvd,cd or the tuner it didn't make that noise. It seems my video/audio 2 channel was going bad. I disconnected my rca jacks and used the optical audio connection. The noise stopped and i got a better quality sound.

hope this helps

Occasional 'whistling/whining' from back of TV

I wonder if there is enough air circulating around your equipment?? My DVD recorder makes a sound unless I open the doors on the cabinet that contains all of my equipment. The cable company says it is a fan to cool down the units.
