Question about Samsung TXM3296HF 32" TV

Open Question

My television makes a ringing noise.

My television makes a terrible ringing noise. I can turn it on and it will be fine and then it starts. It starts out very faintly and then just gradually increases until it is unbearable. I mute the tv and it still does it so I don't think it has anything to do with the speakers. If you turn it off and then back on it does it immediately when you turn it back on. If you turn it off for a longer period(hour or so)it will run awhile before starting again. It has done this in the past, but usually would only last a few days and then it would go away. Now it has done it for a month or more. Any ideas?

SOURCE: High Pitch Sound From Samsung TXN3071WHF 30" TV

I think its the flyback and its starting to leak. this is a component responsible for the high voltage of your tv set. always observe safety in dealing with this. Have it check by a qualified technician. Good luck!

SOURCE: Weird noise over everything

The problem is not with the Audio. It is coming from the capacitators on the main PCB. A tech opened up our set and reproduced the noise by slightly moving the capaicators (with a stick of some sort). Instantly, the high-pitch ring started. This problem has since came back on thew new PCB and seems problematic with the type of TV/Samsung.

SOURCE: Our Samsung HL-P4663W DLP is makes noise and shuts off

It is the color wheel, inside the light engine. The bearings get dirty and makes it harder for the wheel to spin causing that whin.

SOURCE: Samsung Model HLR4667WAX/XAA is making a buzzing sound

This TV is horrible. I have the same one and not even a year replaced the light bulb twice. Very disappointing for a Samsung.

Tv rings

In these sets, I have found that the squealing is caused by the horizontal transformer. It is caused by a part (usually a coil or transformer that is vibrating).
My shop will take a pencil ( with eraser) and just barely touch ( with the eraser side) the component that we think is making the noise. If the pitch changes or goes away completely then that is the part that is making the noise. If not, then we move on to the next suspected part.
When the part is found, unplug the set and apply a solution around the coil or transformer. The solution we use is fingernail polish ( I know, we are professionals, but, it has worked for us over 35 years). Let it dry, about 10 to 15 minutes.
When trying to detect the noise, the set must be running, do not put both hands inside the set at the same time and do not touch any part of the ground with that second hand.
Any questions, respond to this post and I will respond.

Weird noise over everything

According to the Samsung website: "The high pitched sound you hear is probably coming from the flyback transformer. The flyback transformer converts the relatively low voltage electricity that comes from the outlet in your home to the high voltage electricity needed to drive the cathode ray tube in your TV. It is not unusual for a flyback transformer to buzz softly when it operates. However, if the sound is loud and high pitched, it probably means the transformer is failing. To eliminate the sound, you will have to get your TV serviced."

Ringing Noise

That ringing noise sounds like a deflection yolk or an on board coil is starting to sing as we call it. theres not alot you can do unless you find the source as the deflection yolf in the past we used to stick popcycle sticks into the yolk while in place and hot clue them to get rid of singing yolks.. But its onlty a temp fix. the best way to fix it is too replace the singing yolk. Now if its a coil it could be a loose winding on the coil and hot clueing the coil on the outside sometimes fixes thast too but in the end the best way was to replace the coil that makes noise.
