    The RCA 36 inch TV, woke me up, one morning by a hissing sound. I couldn't turn it on, the only thing was to unplug it. That stopped it.

    But, when, I plugged it in again, it started hissing sound again.

Loud sound of air and screeching tv keeps powering down

Sounds like a CRT is arching internally. to confirm remove the covers to have a view of the picture tube necks- in adimly lit room you should see bue arching in one of the tubes. (there are three piture tube with glass necks)

My RCA is screeching

To install the color wheel, turn off and unplug the tv, take off the lower back casing (17 star type screws), remove the lamp door, remove the lower back casing. Look just left of the lamp you will see 3 smaller star type screws near a small circuit board (which is on the color wheel), remove those screws unplug cable from color wheel, unplug other end of 2nd cable from tv circuit board (just to the upper left nearest to the color wheel.

All you have to do is install the color wheel, plug in both cables, put the back on and place the lamp door back in its position, the lamp door pushes in a lillte blue lever which allows the lamp bulb to light up.

I'm in the process of doing the same myself on my RCA same model. Where did you buy the color wheel from?
