I'm getting extremely much noise out of my ibanez guitar, when I pull the whammy bar and the release it nothing happens but when I press the whammy bar towards the body and then release it. It makes a screaming noise you just can't stand :S When it comes to guitars with a Floyd Rose I'm pretty much a noob so any help is appreciated

Can you hear any odd noise when it's not plugged into an amp?

spring noise, pack some tissue into the trem cavity.

I really doubt that it's spring noise. The thing is that it's screaming,buzzing and shouting. and it doesn't stop. it's not when I use the whammy bar it's when I release it afterwards. When I touch the volume- and toneknobs it gets louder!

... and it's when you release it when the springs in the back go from heavily relaxed back to heavily stretched (on an up-bend) or heavily stretched back to relaxed (on a down-bend). These sudden movements will often result in the springs vibrating strongly, just like your strings; And this is often picked up by your pickups too.

So, until you can give us a sound clip or whatever, that's my guess as well.

Edit: Rereading that, it sounds a bit like grounding-noise as well... Maybe the grounding wire isn't connected properly and gets a bit loose when you move the bridge? Most FR-type trems have the grounding wire soldered onto the trem-claw, so check that.
