it has 3 leds in the front panel that flash for awhile while tv is trying to turn on,then only the red one stay on after it powers down,Normally the blue led flashes while powering on then stays on while tv is in use.Now all 3 are flashing and the tv is making a whistling type of noise while it is attempting to turn on , but it does not, Then only the red led stays on.I looked in the back and can see that the noise is coming from the high voltage power supply unit. Some bulb or something lights up temporary and makes the whistling noise noise a few times then shuts off..

Hello again

 

First suspect here is the lamp

You need to take lamp out and examine it

It may be obvious the lamp has failed it may be white or black

Look at the filament in the middle for meltdown
