The bulb wouldnt make it screech, that sounds like a bearing in the color wheel. You may want to consider getting a service manual for your set. If so you can get one for your model for 10.99 at the following link, and they will email it to you if you go back to the site and request that they email it instead of regular mail. Hope this helps. Here is the link.

You can actually go with just buying a bulb. I have seen many cases where televisions stopped displaying a picture due to a worn out bulb. The noise is also from the weak bulb.

I had the same problem. I bought my tv at Best Buy and my warranty included a new bulb for the lamp. They only last about 2 yrs or so depending on how much you watch the tv. You can also buy replacement bulbs online that don't cost too much. BUT, you will need to replace every couple of years. The things you listed are exactly what happens when the bulb goes out. Hope this helps!

Turns on and off then back on then off

Discovered bulb had blown out.
At power on button, red light and green light flashed and no picture was present. I opened side panel after unplugging tv and let the bulb housing cool, then removed the bulb and discovered it had blown. Luckily I had a replacement bulb from the purchase, replaced it and it worked again.

Your TV requires ballast power supply board that gives you buzzing noise when TV turns ON.
Ballast supply board is available in Part Store and replacement of that board requires expertise.

Your bulb is burned out. I have had the same problem. It seems this television has an overheating problem--and short bulb life. I have had our 50 Magnavox dlp for two years and just put in the second bulb before Christmas. You can buy the bulb from a dealer on ebay for $99 and install it yourself. I is not in the housing so you have to carefully take out 4 screws and replace the bulb without touching the face of the bulb. To buy the one from Magnavox with the housing is much more expensive. I think the first time my husband replaced the bulb it took about 45 minutes--this time it took about 20.
