Unhappy Please someone help me!

I've bought an rgar42mfmt and love ibanez and have been playing guitar for 25 years, but i thought i had the bell like spring noise. I've tried electric tape, rubber tubing and foam and cloth to no avail sometimes it got worse, then took the springs out cause i have the bridge blocked for now, and still hear the noise. I've never encountered this problem without being able to fix it with some foam strips. I feel that this may me something different than springs maybe but it sounds just like springs. Any tips, ladies and gentlemen, would be much appreciated.

Pretty sure that somebody has come out with damped springs to deal with the noise. To really test, you might block the trem and remove the springs completely? Maybe check stewmac.com or the Floyd Rose website?

Aha, I did see that he blocked the trem but missed that the springs were also removed. That sure makes things confusing. Does this ringing happen with the guitar unplugged? If so, I must admit I have no idea. About the only thing I can think of is maybe the truss rod is loose enough to vibrate. I see someone already mentioned the strings above the nut, so have you slipped in some foam there?
