Just noticed these at Riptons for 1650 quid
Check what they were returned for before buying. It is likely they are the buzzers, dead pixel, possibly duff picture ones that other members have rejected. I'd see anything like that running before buying in fact.
Good point- i assumed they would be as new. Last thing i would want is a dead pixel, even 1!
but worth checking out
When you mention 'buzzers' are you refering to a strange buzzing sound coming from the back of the panel??
I've had mines for about 10 days now and I have noticed this strange buzzy sound. I've also read that many Hitach 42PD5200 owners complaining about this sound.
Does this mean that the unit is faulty??
It might well be within spec. I'd try and teach yourself to ignore it if it's not normally audible duning use. Few plasmas are silent, but some are like a swarm of hornets. If you have one of those, call customer services. Yours too could finish up being sold cheap at Riptons!
I had one that sounded like a hornet on heat.
I managed to exchange it for one that was much quieter.
Not totally silent though.
Did you also have a 42PD5200? Did you have to get confirmation from Hitachi before you approached the retailer?
Mine is a 37PD5200.
In my case Hitachi were not involved.
