Camileo s20 hissing sound on video playback

This sound may be the AGC (AUTO GAIN CONTROL) maxing out in a quiet recording situation.
Try again with some closer sound to be recorded.

Samsung 32" crt tv, hissing sound

You will find that the Flyback assembly or the EHT cap connected to the top of you picture tube is "leaking". The hissing sound is arcing caused by insulation breakdown in the plastic block of the flyback assembly, a faulty tuning capacitor in the horizontal output stages, or if you live in a humid climate, dust that may have accumulated on the back of the tube/high tension stages , will create a track of conductivity when it takes on moisture from the air. The hissing sound is the air being ionised by the high voltages present.
There is in excess of 25,000 volts in these areas, and repairs to your set should be done by a professional with good experience if you are not familiar with the problem I am speaking of, particularly about the rubber cap connected to the tube. Voltages remain present here even after the set has been turned off, and will remain so for an extended period. The picture tube needs to be discharged correctly before any attempts to repair problems here are made.
I am happy to discuss things further if you wish.

Hissing sound inside my sansui tv

You have a short on the secondary side of the transformer that is hissing. You are going to need someone knowledgeable in electronics, to help you find the short. Most likely it is your Horizontal output transistor.

I have found that sometimes this can be interference from your line input. If you don't use the hardware that is plugged into it(if any) when recording TV shows, then mute it in your sound card volume settings
