Has anyone got a definite answer regarding modifying/disconnecting/quietening the fan(s) on a 42PMA400E? In the past various people seemed to be making significant progress to a solution but there hasn't been any news or fresh discussion of late. Specifically: Darren Blake - was getting very positive feedback from Hitachi that there would be a field-based modification on its way - is there any more news? ncpl - said that changes could be made in the service menu - but how does Joe Public get at this? (a simple unpublished combination of buttons on the remote I guess - but what combination?) dblake - was going to change the fan and said that Richer Sounds knew what to do but were keeping schtum! Have you been able to persuade them to spill the beans? Like you I've searched the 'net for any answer without joy. plus of course the red herring of an on/off switch! I love the screen but at low volumes, the fan's noise is noticeable/intrusive/frustrating - so any help/news from anyone would be appreciated.
