    As you will see "Bye Bye 9986..." well its not quite what it seems... please please help. I want to get my problem sorted asap.

    Does anyone have the 37inch Philips 9986?

    Does it need to be version 2.1?

    Does it hum???

    Thanks!

    Hi Matt,

    I have a one!

    Not sure wther it 'needs' version 2.1 but mine has that version number.

    Cannot detect any humming, although possibly too many discos in the 80's may have had a very minor affect on my hearing.

    Regards,

    Matt,

    So far I haven't come across any 37" 9986 with this problem. It's possibly a different component that operates in the 37". Do you have the 32" at the moment?

    I have 42/9986 with version 2.0 and no hum.

    BTW, it seems that latest sets come with version 2.0 as opposed to 2.1. I had mine (with 2.1) changed after 30 days useage due to a display malfunction and the new one has version 2.0 ?!

    I still have the 32" at the mo... just deciding on whether to "upgrade" to the 37"

    or get a different one altogether (maybe titanium 37, although about £3100 EEK)
