    Today I noticed that the right speaker (the left one when you look at the TV) makes a buzz/noise (like hiss).

    - When you turn down the volume all the way down the noise is still audible (no change at all)
    - The noise doesn't change with the volume levels
    - When you turn up the volume the sound quality is OK (the noise still exists) which proves that the speaker doesn't have a problem
    - When you press MUTE the noise GOES AWAY! (looks like no electrical problem)
    - When you switch to a channel or source which doesn't have a signal there is no noise!
    - It happens at either sources (aerial, EXT1, etc.) if there is a signal
    - I reset the unit to factory settings, nothing has changed
    - Changing contrast, picture, etc. levels doesn't make any difference
    - Don't hear the noise through the headphone but still exists on the speaker
    - The firmware version 2.1

    I have been having this TV for a week or so but I noticed the problem today if it has existed from the beginning.

    I am planning to call Philips service next week. Any suggestions?

    It is actually the Left speaker. You designate speakers as you view the TV.

    This is an odd one. I can only surmise that it is aproblem with the TV's internals - faulty circuitry, and I suspect that it'll need an engineer to fix. It could have been a faulty cable, but this won't be the case as the problem occurs with various sources.

    Unless someone knows different, press on and get Philips to fix it.
