Re: plasm tv

It takes a fair amount of power to make an audible noise like this. Only the power supplies are suspect. Either the low voltage supply that runs the TV's "smarts" or the high-voltage supply that powers the screen. Either way, it is bad news - You do have this under warranty don't you?
I don't care which of the new TV technologies you buy, they are all doomed to expensive repairs. Always keep them under warranty.

Ihave a 42" ilo plasm tv model number PDP4210EA1 i've had it for three years picture went black and only sound is comming out, anything i can do to get picture back at a reasonable price

I've had a same problem with a similar TV. The odds are the power supply board for the screen has failed. Most manufactures call it a Backlight Inverter board. If you have some electronic experience, you can some times find a Service Manual for your TV on the internet for less than $20. It will have all the research material for repairing the damaged circuit board.
