I had an LG 37" LCD that did this to me. Turned out to be bad solder joints on the side button board. Just reflowed and it starting working fine.

But now that I think about, I had another set do the same thing, only it wasn't the button board. I had to upgrade the TV's firmware via the USB service port. Just needed a USB flash drive and downloaded the firmware from the mfg's website. There were easy to follow instructions there too!

It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.

It might be repairable, but the repair will likely cost you triple what a new TV will cost.

Many LED TVs and other electronics have bad capacitors on their power supply boards. You can visually inspect them by opening the TV and looking for capacitors with bulging tops. If tou see any, replace them all in the power board section. Check to see if your TV is still under warranty first though.

Is it only when connected to the computer? If so there are several settings that could be causing the issue. The biggest is the refresh rate, make sure it's set to a max of 60HZ. Also make sure the resolution is not set to high. If your TV is 720p it's 1280x720, for 1080p it's 1920x1080 MAX! Also make sure the cable is tight on both ends. If all this is okay, it may be a hardware issue, but it's doubtful. Try hooking the computer to another TV.

If it's not a computer the issue is most likely either the source resolution or the cable.

Good luck

The buzzing is normal thing, because white screen requires most power and your chopper works at its max. The sound comes from inductance coils and transformer because of old isolation and glue which shouldnt make any problems.
