TV's have a circuit that monitors the high voltage and shuts down the set if it senses something amiss.
Figure on replacing the flyback transformer.
Hope ya fix it!

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.

High Pitch Sounds

In this model the horizontal drive coil vibrates and makes a high pitch squeal. Most times it is intermitent. Touching on the coil with something (non electrical, like wood) will make it stop or change it's pitch. The fix my shop uses: It's not to technical, but, we put fingernail polish around the coil. It's a remedy I've used for decades and has always worked. Some shops use a hot glue gun. With the back open you can hear the coil to locate it. When fixing the problem have the set unplugged. When a technician is working on a television while it's plugged in. He uses only one hand and stays away from the high voltage.
