Ignore him. If he's making a contact call to see where you are, you can try calling back to him occasionally. If you go to check on him when he starts screaming, though, he'll learn that screaming will make you come. Once you are sure he is safe, let him scream his little heart out. The more ingrained the behavior the longer it will take to die out, but eventually he should stop screaming. It may also help to find another sound he makes that is less annoying and teach him to use that when he wants attention.
Also make sure he has plenty of toys and that you rotate them frequently, so he's not bored. You could set up some foraging opportunities to keep him occupied.
Are you on any other forums or boards? You might want to consider Parrot Paradise, Avian Avenue, the Bird Talk forums or hte The Parrot forum.
