    Hi, my cousin bought a 32" TV for his girlfriend and we just hooked it up. It's a Sharp TV. It makes this high pitched noise that just drives us crazy. Now is this from it just being a new TV or what?

    Thanks for any help anyone could provide.

    How high pitched? There is a very high pitched whine that standard tvs make, and always have. Most people either ignore it, don't notice it, or can't hear it. IF this is not what you are hearing, then there may be a problem.

    hmm well it's pretty much gone now. I guess it was since it was brand-new it was making this noise. Oh well, no big deal.

    This whine you're hearing, as Chris notes, is normal. And it's at higher than 15 kHz, which at least demonstrates your hearing is in decent shape (I can tell when a TV is on in any house, even if it's sound is turned off and the unit is in another room). It is more shrill at first, and levels off a bit as the set warms up and its internals reach thermal stability. The set's fine, like your hearing.
