When it comes to noises near your circut breaker, listen to your children.

Well the other day I was at home and my parents were at work. I was hearing some weird noises from around our circut breaker. So I called my dad and told him I was hearing noises and it sound electrical. He didn't believe me until last night until I told him there were more noises comeing from it. So he opened the little door and flipped one of the switch thingies back and forth and it was arcing! So we replaced it and there was this weird blue purpley powder on it. So if your children hear noises around your circut breaker, you might want to check it. My mom said she heard something coming from over there but she thought it was a mouse or rat outside or in the wall. (Our neighbor has rats and they come over to our house all the time)

When I was a kid I remember telling my parents that our TV was making a high-pitched sound. They told me I was crazy. Turns out that the flyback transformer runs at about 15 kilohertz. My dad was a TV repairman...he should figured it out.
Hmm, I still hear a whine every time someone turns on a tv, either in my house, the apt. above us, or the 2 next to us. It is almost a tinnitus kind of whine and I hate it.

My mom's TV makes an annoying noise like that. I hate it.
I think what I am hearing is the "ringing" of the HV power supplies of older tv's

Oh
Most people my age have lost the "upper range" of hearing, me, I have troubles with hearing bass and lower tones. *sigh* something else that makes me weird unique LOL

Maybe there's something wrong with her TV...
Your Mom's ? Maybe if it is doing it all the time. What I hear from most tvs is only at "startup". then it goes away.
