Question about RCA P46921 46" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

High pitched squeal

I have an intermittent high pitch squeal coming from the back of the TV. I can change the pitch by manipulating the area where the cable enters the back of the TV. It's not the cable, it the part of the TV where the cable and A/V cables attach. It is very loud and getting worse. TV is around 7 years old. Plan on upgrading to LCD, but would still like to keep this for the basement.
Thanks

What an RCA I hope you didn't pay mutch for this, NO it's not the part of the board were the cable goes in, the so call squeal is the horizontal oscilation of the coil you hear, narmaly it is at the rate of 15747 hz, to find your problem you most open the back cover, and while the ptv is on try to hear by insolating the noise were it is comming from with a credit car or something that will hide the section you trying to find, it will be a transformer or a coil, close to the power supply or the horizontal defflection section. To fix your problem well that's all a different game, you must contact me via e mail at rlandry@vianet.ca

I hope this help.
Meanwhile keep on smilling, life to short

I have a Toshiba 27AF42 and I get a high pitched squeal after the TV has been on for a few minutes. Any ideas how to fix this? Once I turn the TV and back on again the squeal goes away.


yes. its the horizontal linearity coil resonating. take off back. and while unit is on, take a plastic straw and push on coils in the high voltage area. you will find one that squeals when pushed on, or will stop squealing when pushed on. solder that coil and area. that will fix 80 percent of the time. if you push on it and the squeal tone changes, solder it and silicone it done. fixed.

High pitched squeal


Hi...

Does the squeal come from the TV cabinet or the speaker?
If from the cabinet , it's most likely the Horizontal high-voltage section of the set.
Find someone that's good with hand tools,unplug the set from the wall outlet, let it sit for a good 30 minutes.
have someone open up the back of the set and dust out and vacuum out any dust from inside the set.
Put back together and try it out.

RCA Model f27650 High pitch squeal


the high pitch squeal indicates shorted component/s. the transformer goes hot co'z its being overloaded by the shorted component, it too could be the one creating the squeal!!

if you have experience with electronic troubleshooting, try to test some of the components particularly on the secondary part of the transformer.
Be careful and make sure the TV set is unplugged.
test for shorted diodes and transistors, if you're in doubt of your readings try to desoldering one leg of the diode then proceed with the testing/measuring. replace any of the bad components you find exactly with same part number or replacements with the same rating.

spend more time on it resoldering some other cold soldered components.

My set has deveolped an intermittent high pitch squeal.


It always nice when the high-voltage circuit gives you fair warning of impending doom. Have the high-voltage (flyback) transformer replaced now before it fails catastrophically and wipes out other stuff with it. There are other things that could make noise too, same advice applies to them.
Hope ya fix it!

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.
