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?

TV making high pitch sound


Hi, There are usually 1 or 2 fans inside the TV's. Could be worn bearings, or fan blade interference. Sorry, without my electric ear working, I can only guess.

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.
