    my samsung slimfit tv is making a horrible high pitched noise, the video and audio are fine but this high pitched squealing noise is too much to bear. i called a service rep and he said it was common and there was a coil inside that needed to be replaced. he said it would be about $85.00 but they are on vacation for the next 3-4 weeks :(

    this problem is from a transformer tray or some such thing, my tv was under warranty when this happened to me, I waited 3 mos. for a part that Samsung knew they didn't make anymore and I was given a 32 lcd as a warrenty replacement.

I can hear a zapping noise.the front green display is not lit.

Most of the time a zapping or crackling sound is a bad electrical connection. I would check the connections were the power from the source is connected to the oven.

Whirlpool (Old) dryer makes a zapping noise at the outlet. It will run, but there is no heat

Unplug the dryer, IMMEDIATELY.

Get a Pro to check for wiring shorts or heating elements that are, burned loose, touching or other wise going to ground...

What you are describing is a severe fire hazard if not corrected...

Lennox air purifier zapping sound

This may be an electronic style air filter which causes a bug zapper noise when "zapping" dust. I was out doing some research myself on them which is how I came upon your question. It seems they need to be cleaned carefully; which I am seeking instructions for. Best of luck in your ventures! Do some research, they are expensive to repair if you break them in the process of trying to clean or remove them. This page did a decent job at explaining the why it zaps part.

51MP392H/17 Makes Zapping sound on power up. No picture or sound. Has been reset/unplugged. When powering up makes a sound like a bug zapper for about 1/2 second. Power light stays on and I can hear the tv...

The Zapping sound you are referring to is most likely due to arcing of the flyback(high voltage transformer). It is strongly recommended that you do not turn on the tv and have a tech test the flyback and replace it. The FBT generates voltages of about 30000V and should not be handled by someone who has not worked on high voltage electronics before.

Makes a zapping noise when you turn on the electronic air cleaner

If the the "zapping" noise you hear is intermitant (like a Bug Zapper) it's probably dust that the air cleaner is picking up from the household air. .If that's the case, there's nothing to worry about, it's doing it's job.

If the "zapping" sound is continuous, then the unit may need cleaning, as it may be clogged with dust & lint.

Picture and sound gone

The Flyback Transformer is probably shorted to the core and shorted out the Horizontal Output Transistor. Changing both will probably fix your problem. Let me know if this helps.
