The chirping is more like a cricket and is 17 chips at 10 seconds. There is no smoke or smell. Sounds like its coming from the bottom right side of the tv (looking from the back) and the only light that comes on is the light in the power switch.

Hello. The chirping probably indicates a shorted transistor or diode, and the burnt smell usually indicates a blown capacitor or a burnt resistor, or multiple damaged parts. I would have to see the TV to be of any further assistance. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful. Good luck.
Ur tv the convergence board the 2 STK convergence ICS and some or all it resistors are dead.These parts are defective still have some life left,it will causes colors lines like RED,GREEN,BLUE misaligns,colors shadows,3D picture.When the 2 STK covergence ICS are totally dead it make this cricket noises and burning smell.The shop cost u $300-350 for parts and labors.
The convergence is dead.It cause 3D colors misalign
and clicking chirping noise with no power on.Know how how to solders?The 2 Convergence ICS must change and all it resistors. Tries Tv Repair World.com,Tvrepairkits.com for the convergence kit to repair it ur self.The shop will cost $300 for parts and labors.
Two main common failures for these sets is the convergence amps and the
flyback transformer (which is rather expensive). Both can make the set
Chirping means the power supply is being loaded down by a short in most cases, likely a bad convergance IC http://home.earthlink.net/~oleg.filippov/ConvergenceFix.htm http://cmpalmer.blogspot.com/2006/11/fixing-my-own-tv-part-ii.html

The chirping is an indication that the power supply is having difficulty starting up. This could be a problem with the power supply itself or a problem further down that is loading the supply. For a set this size, I'd invest in a detailed repair estimate. Report the results here and we can walk you through the actual repair.
NO - - signal did nothing to the set... Sounds like a shorted HOT (horizontal output transistor) and the feedback your hearing (chirp) is on the horz. transformer as it tries repeatedly to startup... Don't allow it to do that for too long...
Rainman, can`t really be of any great help on this one, both techs can be right, the chirp is exactly as you thought, the set is trying to come on but there is a short in the set and it`s shutting down because of the short, could be convergence, low voltage power supply, high voltage power supply, until a tech gets in there and starts un-loading circuits it`s impossible to say where the short is, gonna have to call someone out for this one, good luck with it, BMW Rider
