I suspect you may have 2 capacitors in your control module that need to be replaced. When these caps start to go bad it will often show up as a problem with the sound. However, when they get really bad they can prevent the TV from turning on. Please see the link below, posted by stiv0. It gives detailed instructions on how to replace these caps and to tell if they're getting bad. If you follow these instructions you can take the back off the TV and check out the caps. If the tops of the caps are bulging they need to be replaced. Just be sure to replace them with the correct value (1000uf) and use caps that are rated at a higher voltage than the originals. I replace the 10v caps in my FLM 373B with 30V caps just to be on the safe side. If you know how to solder this is an easy and inexpensive fix. If you don't know how to solder find a friend who does. These caps have positive and negative terminals. It's important you solder the new caps in with the correct polarity. Stiv0 gives instructions on this. Even if the caps aren't bulging this fix is so inexpensive, less than 10$, that you may want to try it anyway. I hope this helps you out.

THE SQUEAL IS PROBABLY COMING FROM THE A/C COMPRESSOR CLUTCH IF IT IS NOT LOCKED IN WHEN THE A/C IS TURNED ON IT WILL RUB AND SQUEAL. I WOULD CHECK AND MAKE SURE YUR COOLING FANS ARE COMING ON WHEN THE CAR A/C IS TURNED ON ALSO BECAUSE THAT WILL CAUSE IT TO OVER HEAT.

Mine did that off and on for a month with no other problems then it started making a loud suction noise and the check engine light came on. I took it to the dealer and they said the "oil separator" needed to be replaced.
After the repair I never heard the squealing again.

After tv is on for approx 20-30 mins it starts to make a loud high pitched squeal or whine. once turned off for approx 10-15 mins can turn it back on for another 20-30 mins before squeal will return....


Sounds like a problem I had with a Polaroid t.v. Take the cover off the back and look for capactors that are buldging on the top. The top should be slightly concave. If they are convex at all, you can buy new one at Radio Shack and replace them for under $5.00

Loud squealing noise first 5 minutes after tv is turned on


Sounds like the color wheel. It's the only moving part in most DLP's and the bearings can go bad. If it manages to get up to speed the picture may look normal. One temporary solution may be to let it run a few minutes, then turn the set off for 10 minutes, then turn back on. When my color wheel was going bad that would often quieten it down. For the rest of the day, try to leave the set on, especially if you're only going to be away from the TV for short periods. You can turn off your cable or satellite box but leave the set on and you won't have to go through the hassle of trying to quieten down the color wheel until the next cold start. Of course the best solution is to replace the color wheel which even with a rebuilt unit won't be cheap if your warranty is expired.
