TV scrambles with LOUD buzzing and then turns off

I've had my 19'' Magnavox flat screen for about 2 years. I'm in college, and it's great for my cramped apartment. I moved into a new room before winter break, unpacked it, and then went home. When I came back it worked fine. Then...a few days later...after I turned it on, within 30 secs.-1 min. it scrambled with a LOUD, high-pitched buzzing sound (woke my roommates), and then shut itself off, and turned itself back on. Well, it's done this almost every time I've turned my tv on. It does it once or twice, and then it doesn't do it the rest of the time I have my tv on. My fiance came to visit and I turned my tv on to show him what I meant. It didn't do it, and once I said it, it happened. He checked all of my connections and their fine, I already knew that. But it's getting worse. It's happening 3 or 4 times before I can actually watch tv. I must add that sometimes it doesn't make the noise. It's the noise that freaks me out. I just don't know what's happening and if I should have it looked at.

There is a part inside the TV that needs to be replaced. If the TV is 2 years old, then the manufacture warranty is over. If you have an extended warranty, you can get the TV replaced. Otherwise, you're only hope is to call Memorex to see if the problem is a known issue with your model which could mean they're willing to do something for you even though the TV is out of warranty.

The biggest problem with their TVs is part availability. Under their warranty, most TVs are simply replaced not repaired, so they don't have many parts available for purchase. Then there is the fact that even if you can purchase the needed part, the cost of the part combined with having a TV repair guy install it for you would exceed the cost of a new 19" TV since prices have fallen so much in the last 13 months.

Don't bother taking the TV to get it "looked at" because all of the repair shops will charge you a diagnostic fee just to determine the problem. This fee ranges from $50 to $120. Since you already know the total cost of repair will exceed the cost of a replacement TV, why spend money that can go toward that purchase?

Phillips 19" flat screen


OK, I had the same problem and I fix it 100%.
The power board is ok, the lamps are ok, don't waste time there.
Just open the TV, remove the shield of the mainboard, and in the side where are the wires from the power board, there are many capacitors, check them, in my case 4 were "fat", exploded.
I had to change 9 to make shure, and that's all !!!

19 in blue screen only sound works great


blue screen is the noise mute screen. however the audio is not getting muted and hence the buzzing....meaning the tuner on the TV is not getting locked on to the station/frequency

1. check your antenna if you are using one. Autotune
OR
2. Reconnect coax from the cable box to Tv and autotune.
OR
3.Use the Video out from the cable box and connect it to one of the video inputs on the TV. Switch your Tv to that component. Use the cable box to change channels (Best case scenerio)

Very loud fan or vibration noise


Listen from the back of the TV and locate the source of the noise. There may be fan with a bad bearing. The noise will lead you to it.
