I have the same exact problem, as do many other consumers such as ourselves. However, I haven't found much of an solution besides RCA is willing to send an "authorized service technician" to my house to investigate the problem, which would cost me $99.50 JUST for diagnostics. I have taken it upon myself, and hopefully you will as well, to contact RCA and demand that they fix the problem with no out of cost pocket to us since this is a habitual problem with this model.
Hopefully, if enough complaints go through, they'll decide to do a recall or agree to replace the defective part, whatever it may be.

The TV was making the clicking noise and not turning on because an internal error was being detected.
Now things had got worse , and something had blown inside the TV.
The burning smell and high pitched noise is coming either from Flyback transformer or PSU board. Repair is a delicate matter and must be done by a technician.
Likely not, as the DS Phat and Lite use a special charger that you can get at Walmart or somewhere similar for cheap, although I'd complain about it to whoever you bought the DS from and see if you can get a free charger from them.
