Question about Toshiba 36AF43 36" TV

1 Answer

My set has deveolped an intermittent high pitch squeal.

Sometimes cycling the power will stop the squeal temporarily but it usually comes back. Is this something that is worth repairing? The TV works fine otherwise.

It always nice when the high-voltage circuit gives you fair warning of impending doom. Have the high-voltage (flyback) transformer replaced now before it fails catastrophically and wipes out other stuff with it. There are other things that could make noise too, same advice applies to them.
Hope ya fix it!

My GEM GL-1821A Computer monitor has a high pitch squeak that is intermittent in occurrence but sometimes continues for long periods of time. Got any ideas?


A high-pitch squeal is common in CRT TV sets and monitors. I've never run across this in an LCD monitor, but there's a first time for everything. If the sound isn't coming through built-in speakers (if this model has them) and is being caused by the computer, I would suspect the inverter circuitry. This provides power for the backlight, and there are transformers that may have become noisy. Because of their construction, it's possible for them to vibrate internally, and at a frequency that you hear as the high-pitched noise. There isn't a lot you can do to quiet them. When I worked on TV sets, I had mixed success using hot-melt glue to muffle the noise, but usually the only way to completely cure the problem was to replace the parts. It's unlikely you'll find the parts available for a monitor, so all I can suggest is to bear with the noise as long as the monitor is otherwise working properly. Or use this as an excuse to buy a new LCD monitor; they are quite reasonably priced these days.

Our water softener makes a high pitched squealing noise every 10 min. or so, and then quits for several hours only to start again during the night when we're trying to sleep. Our water softener repairman...


A softener will generally make a high pitch squeal when it is backwashing. This is generally the first cycle in most softeners. It may also do this during the final fast rinse cycle. The second brining cycle takes about an hour. That is why you may have a delay in the squeal. Also I have seen at times when a power surge can force the drive motor into a short backwash. Usually just a few minutes. It may help to put a surge surpressor at the water softener plug.

High pitched squeal


Hi...

Does the squeal come from the TV cabinet or the speaker?
If from the cabinet , it's most likely the Horizontal high-voltage section of the set.
Find someone that's good with hand tools,unplug the set from the wall outlet, let it sit for a good 30 minutes.
have someone open up the back of the set and dust out and vacuum out any dust from inside the set.
Put back together and try it out.

The high-pitched squeal usually indicates that the horizontal drive circuit has failed as a result of a dead line-output transistor. This symptom indicates that the control circuit of the main power supply is trying to over-compensate for a greater than usual secondary current. Certainly, an inspection of the line-output transistor will show that it's most likely dead. Sometimes instead of the squeal you will hear hiccups instead. Focus your attention on the horizontal circuit.
