There are six small (50mm x 50mm x 10mm) thermally-triggered ventilation fans inside the unit. in time the bearings in these fans wear out (prematurely?) and cause an annoying whine; was told by service person at first replacement that premature bearing failure is result of mounting orientation. whine can drive dogs crazy when sound signal muted. people too. hopefully relatively easy to replace fans if careful; will soon find out when new fan ordered arrive. replacement cost from Sony for fans is almost $50 each as of 6/1/2008

    well, if tv set gets very hot, it will turn off automatcally as protection. I think, nothing is wrong with your tv and please check its connecting cables towards DVD player or some thing like that.

Westinghouse TV making crackling sound


I have had the same issue with a Westinghouse 50 inch LED TV. I believe it is not the power supply but the HDMI input. You can temporarily work around by plugging your primary source into the other HDMI. You may also get some relief by using the Westy remote, finding the TV menu, then selecting (Option) (Restore All). There may be an arcane procedure to reset the HDMI.

A buzzing noise coming from inside the tv but still buzzes when on mute but doesnt buzz when tv guide is up on the screen or when a channel is showing what time it starts


plasma tvs buzz a lot, depending on screen brightness. its probably normal but if you can hear loudly over your volume, may be a bad board or plasma panel. from behind tv, left side = y board, right side = z board, middle = power board ---- bad panel can buzz from anywhere... if you hear all parts buzzing, its probably normal plasma noise

My tv power box is making a loud noise


good day brend, hi, my suggestion is unplug the TV and call your dealer/service shop for repairs, the loud noise could be high voltage arching which prolonged may lead to high voltage sparks and fire.

Buzzing/fizzing noise from back of sony flat screen tv


Below is an image of rear side of your TV, Sony KDL-40W5500
Top right corner is marked there and possible cause of noise seems back light inverter board, there are high voltage going to CCFL inside LCD panel and seems high voltage leakage causing that buzzing/ fuzzing noise.

Replace back light inverter board upon voltage leakage confirmation.
Thanks.

Loud noise


You MAY have some condensation in a high voltage path inside.
The noise might well be from leaking high voltage.

I recommend you let it climatize for a couple of days before trying it again, otherwise you may damage circuitry not normally involved with production of the HV.
