In the old days that meant that your "flyback transformer" went bad and needed to be replaced.

Now a days it might be cheaper to just buy a new TV set - especially if it's over ten years old. Give it to Goodwill and see if one of their workers can fix it for resale to lower income folks..

Check the remote control for its infrared emission first. Check it with fresh batteries. If you wish to get more details, check this site. Pull up older posts there. Check the site with patience, as it has over 2350 posts now. All are related to electronic equipment repair help.

What happens in this case is a small transformer or the high voltage transformer vibrate hard enough to make that sound--not loose or bad but can cause the vibration.

I have seen in customer's homes where it was loud enough to chase cats right out of the room even in a large room.

Two ways to deal with this----with the set apart locate the part by ear or even probing with a plastic tool---when you press close to it, the sound will diminish or go away.

Believe it or not (in our shop) once located we use a hot glue gun to take the sound away---

usually if very loud it is the high voltage transformer on the main TV board (see photo of a typical one) not on the black part but on the iron like (it is a different material) core that looks like a U bolt.

it can irritate but poses no danger.

you will not be able to do all you want with out remote on these types of units

you should just call or write to Emerson and get a replacement from them

it will be easier than the headaches you will have trying to get a replacement that will do all the functions the original did because none of them do

good luck
