High pitch noise...

I just bought this tv for less than 200 bucks but it came along with this awful annoying high pitch noise. my husband took off the back of the tv and thinks that it is coming for the color wheel. the noise is constant but changes very slightly in pitch according to what is being watched. i think he is right cause i was watching the color wheel and the noise begins and ends with the wheel turning.

How can this be fixed? Is it something we can do at home? (im very technical and dont usually have a problem fixing things) do you think that this really is the cause of the noise?

Hello
The LOT [Line Output Transformer] of your TV has damaged. It is the one, that supply all the voltaged needed to CRT. Its internal windings will get shorted in between, and is irreparable. Replacement is the only remedy to this proble. Replace the horizontal output transistor also with this. you haven't specified whether there is picture with your tV or not. If this high frequency sound is along with picture, there is some loose in the cores of the SMPS transformer, or LOT itsef. If there is no picture at all, and this high frequency sound is there, no doubt; LOT is damaged. OK.

High pitch frequency noise coming from rear of TV and is very annoying to listen too. It is a constant noise and is more apparent when there is more black color on screen.


High pitch sound on LC-42D62 is reproduced by switching transformers on power supply board. To correct this problem, you will need to remove power supply unit from the TV, spray all transformers with SILICONE CONFORMAL COATING. Let it dry for 12Hrs. Then install power supply unit back.

WOW...had a high pitch noise, came and went...got worse as time wore on. Would shut off the set, times it cleared times it didn't. Warranty folks set out a TV repairman--said he had worked for RCA exclusively for years...anyway, explained that the 1k hertz noise was a known issue with the HD56W58 and that RCA’s published fix was "nail polish" applied on some board, had something to due with power and vibration...long story "presto" noise gone...but after 6 or so months we began to hear it again—say it ain’t so, but yes the high pitch was back. Same repairman, this time bigger problem...along with noise, the network card is broke and Fry’s Electronics (Irving, TX—hear that Corporate HQ at San Jose…your Irving store needs to be leased in and tote the company line...where's the customer satisfaction???) is balking at a “equal” replacement, they see it as take the less than equal product or get store credit…good luck & wish me luck with the equal replacement they tout when pushing the warranty.

Tv makes high pitch noise


Seems like your television is doing the same thing as mine. I dont have a resolution but this may help from it clonking out completly. Leave it alone for now. My television started doing this months ago and I rarely even used it for the first two years due to deployment. One day it startd the high pitch, and i ignored it because i rarely turned it on besides when company came. About a month later it completly clunked out. Now i only get the green power light. NO pic, No volume or anything. Just that loud screech. Eventually it will go out, causing more problems. Usually you can go to a repair shop, get the piece name from them and then order and fix it yourself. The shop is going to do the same thing as you will, except charge you more for having ordereing it when you can do so yourself. Shops here charge about $60 bucks to let you know what it is... Shouldnt be a big change where you are.

High pitch noise when tv warms up


High pitch noise is created mostly by a Coil or a transformer,is not easy finding the source if you are not familiar with this type of coil since there many sizes and shapes,the set needs to be on while trying to find wich part is doing it SO if you dont know where and how better call a Technician and you will be safe.
