If horizontal output gets shorted always, something may be wrong with Line Output Transformer [LOT], or deflection yoke. If LOT windings inside is short, hrozontal output transistor will get overheated, and will be get shorted soon. If there is winding short in the Deflection yoke, even a sinlgle winding gets shorted, it puts a great load on LOT, which in turn effect horizontal output transistor. The third main reason for horizontal output transistor failure is due to an open or dry solder at the capacitor connected to its collector to negative It will be usually 2500pf to 3500pf, according to the TVs screen size. You just check these three and be sure about the fault.
The vertical output transistor, or a component in that circuit has gone out. Often an electrolytic capicator in this circuit will fail causing this problem. Sometimes you will have catastrophic failures which will take out the transistor, cap, and resistors in that circuit. But none are expensive parts really. But it takes an experienced hand to replace/test them.
What has happened is that the horizontal output transistor has shorted. The squeal you hear is the power supply running under a heavy load. The picture narrowing or being distorted indicate that the horizontal output was not operating clean. Something in the output section was not as it should be. Possible short in the output transformer/tripler unit or something loading down the secondary voltages generated by the horizontal output. You will need a tech to figure this out....If you are not a tech, then this ones a goner as far as fix it at home goes.....If you are a tech I might be able to talk you through the repair. Have someone remove the horizontal output transistor and I bet the squeal goes away.
It is likely the HOT (horizontal output transistor) and a couple of associated capacitors. common failure. the HOT is around 8.00 and some for the caps. but almost no tv person works for less than 100. and provides a warranty. so you can expect 150. at least for a bill.
The Hor Output transistor is connected to the Line Output Transformer. This transfromer provides a lot of voltages around your TV set but includes the very high voltage to the Picture tube...
These transformers are specially tuned to resonate at a certain frequency,
The Hor output transistor needs to match this frequency....so if the wiring inside the transformer is shorted by "just a bit" the picture will be visible but the transistor is struggling to match the transformer impedance,from the mismatched tuning...so the transistor draws more current from the power supply.. runs hot then burns out...
Usually manufacturers provide a Trip circuit that detects that an overload on the power supply is occuring and cuts the power to the Line output stage ...this is usually detected by a clicking sound within the power supply its called hiccuping.
If some one has altered the correct setting on the power trip circuit then the next thing that happens is the Transistor goes Blooooey like in your case.....
So to save you a lot of money replacing the output transistor
please replace the output transfromer as well next time...
But please... please... re-check the power supply trip circuit to save you a lot more expense in the future....
