In most modern laptop chargers, this high pitched sound it emitted when a "safety switch" has been activated in the charger. It is possible that there may have been damage to one of the components in the charger. The only solution is to replace the charger.

Sony Laptop Power Problem


Without knowing how old your laptop is, I suspect that the problem is the charger, if its over 1-2 years old, you may have to replace the charger, the problem may be that the laptop is draining too much power for the worn out charger to provide and it switches to battery power instead.

When the laptop is turned off there is less of a drain on the charger and it still has enought juice in it to charge the battery, but not run the laptop at the same time.

The problem might be the power supply charger that plugs into the laptop, unplug the charger and run the laptop on battery power, is the high pitch sound there when you power up? if this solves the problem, it is the power supply charger that is the cause.

Usually when you see this flashinf indicator it is a failing battery. IT maybe that some of the cells in the battery are failing and refusing to accept a charge, in that case the battery will actually damage the charger.

High pitch noise


Hello there, You have to specify where the noise is coming from. Is it coming from the speaker or from the back of the unit. SMPS power supply powering your unit create this kind of noise when some capacitor gone out of their value.

Good Luck.

High pitch noise


what you are hearing is the mechanical vibrating of coils & or transformers in the tv. 1st and easyest is to hot glue the parts that is making the noise down. if that does not work, removing & reinstalling the part is next. the last is replacement. the most likely parts causing is the 1. horizontal linearity coil, 2. the run or switch mode transformer, or 3. the flyback transformer. good luck.
