    Have same problem with same TV. High pitched whine/squeal when TV is turned on. No picture. Just the whine.

    Same prob, but when the power button is pushed the tv sounds like it is about to turn on. power button lights up green. then, 4 sparks in half second intervals to the lower left rear of the set. followed by the tv shorting off just before the screen is supposed to turn on and a burning smell ( its the best). i checked and the component sparking is the SIMOP, Orega 40351a-16. A bulky black component with one large red cable running to the top rear of the back of the tube (it looks important). it also has a grey attachment with words screen and focus on it. what can i do?

Your TV have faults on Horizontal deflections, the oscillator and the Flyback might be the problems. If you are not familiar with TV circuits?... call tecnician to check your set.

Replaced the lamp in Samsung hl-s5086w and now T.V. won`t turn on but has a high pitch noise coming from back of set.

The high pitch noise is the color wheel that needs replace the noise is coming from a bad bushing that goes to the color wheel and is a common problem.

Screen suddenly turned off, makes an odd high pitched noise when it tries to turn back on. power button flashes orange

Sounds like there is a power problem if the neutral (return) wire on the power supply has become high impedance (or even disconnected) then you will get a high pitched sound coming from the TV PSU also the voltage that is presented will not be 240V which will give you the same problem.

The orange power button means standby if you fix the PSU then the TV might work again but it may have been damaged by the PSU.

Phillips 60'' projection hdtv wont turn on

Question do you see green led or light when pressing power button? If you can also listen for a high pitch noise coming from back of set. This would be an indication that the set has powersuppy problem or high voltage problems. If the set is dead and no noise then maybe fuse or open circuit.

TV won't stay turned on, no picture, started making high pitched noise

That high pitched noise you're hearing is the power supply telling you that it has too much of a load on it and lowered its operating frequency which in effect cuts its output way down! Normally you don't hear any thing since the power supply operates at a frequency that's beyond human hearing. In an RCA this indicates more than likely that your horizontal output transistor is shorted and this short was caused by the flyback transformer shorting. This is a common happening with RCA's You'd need to take to a tv shop and have it checked out. Stargazer
