In these sets, I have found that the squealing is caused by the horizontal transformer. It is caused by a part (usually a coil or transformer that is vibrating).
My shop will take a pencil ( with eraser) and just barely touch ( with the eraser side) the component that we think is making the noise. If the pitch changes or goes away completely then that is the part that is making the noise. If not, then we move on to the next suspected part.
When the part is found, unplug the set and apply a solution around the coil or transformer. The solution we use is fingernail polish ( I know, we are professionals, but, it has worked for us over 35 years). Let it dry, about 10 to 15 minutes.
When trying to detect the noise, the set must be running, do not put both hands inside the set at the same time and do not touch any part of the ground with that second hand.
Any questions, respond to this post and I will respond.

I have a 4K 50 inch tv. I accidentally set my book on top of tv controller & now this really wierd, fast, kind of high piched voice come on to say what the tv is doing. How can l turn this off?

if the voice comes from the remote, take the batteries out and wait a minute and put them back. If its coming from the TV, do a factory reset via the TVs menu. If the noise is coming from everywhere and no where at the same time, then you have a haunted TV and you need a electronics exorcist.

I have a Hitachi Ultra Vison 57S700 2004 model, the TV has had a slight high piched whine for a couple of weeks and today the screen went green then black and the sound was gone. When it is turned on the...

This tv is under five years old?Yes,it is worth fixing.Over five,i would compare the prices for a new LCD tv and the quote priced from the Tv Tech.for the old tv.This tv have high voltage problems around the Deflection circuitries area.Could be any things burn in this area.The high pitched whine sound,i'm sure it is from the FBT-the high voltages flyback transformer,high voltages current have no where to go.Must hire a tv tech. to troubleshoots and replace parts on the Deflection circuitries area.Also the FBT could be dead too,because HV Current bounces back forth and have no where else to go.The prices to troubleshoot unknown problems is about $400 bucks and plus cost of replacement of parts.

Noise from drivers side

hi how are you.there is a couple of things that will cause a rubbing sound.if it is a high pich sound then look at your dust cover behind your brake rotor.a low pich or a growling noise check your wheel bearing/hub assembly.with wheel off the ground wiggle it side to side and up and down you will have alot of play.or there is something hitting the tire.

Ringing noise coming from my philips 30PW9110D/37

This noise is coming from the power supply.
You may want to look for a local repair shop from this website to get service if desired.
If the power supply were to be replaced, it could be done by you if you are somewhat savvy.

The high pitched sound is probably comming from the power supply, possibly due to its trying to drive voltage into a shorted component in the high voltage deflection circuits. You may be lookng at about a $250 repair. If it has been used a lot and its picture quality didn't knock your socks off, I would replace it with a HDTV set. A 37 inch LCD from Toshiba might be a good place to start and should do nicely for you.
