Check with Samsung first, most of their TVs and monitors come with a 3 year warranty and if you open the unit it will void the warranty.

The H.O.T tranistor and flyback transformer are bad. This can be fixed cheap if you find the right shop. Transformer cost about $22. and the H.O.T transistor is about $6.00. The labor is what you have to shop for.

High pitch noise and the power light flashes.

most likely it is the flyback transformer. I have had meny RCA tv's with a bad Flyback and H.O.T transistor bad. Cost depends on the service center. Parts average around $60.00 dealer, so depending on mark up and shop labor it could vary greatly. If you have never changed these parts it is best to have a service man do it ... Take it to the shop and save the trip call charge $49.00 and up to $125.00..

Green blinking power button

Sounds like an internal fuse or a power supply problem. It is worth it (I don't normally say this) to get this set fixed.

Buzzing noise

Fly back transformer will cause a buzzing sound like this. Really up to you how bad it bothers you it can be fixed but it will cost a couple hundred dollars. If you can solder you can put it in yourself but the flyyback will still cost a little bit of money.

F36550 RCA 36 in TV

Hehehe Its all in a matter of taste I like sony and Mitsubishi. You like RCA you get what you pay for. These sets are good for the L401 in the horizontal drive circuit to cause your problem as well as a blown fuse and a shorted horizontal output trasistor and the flyback transformer. if its anything Im thinking off the repair cannot be done by a handi person and should be taken to a pro and will cost in the range of150 to 225.00 for this repair. good Luck
