    I know many of you have received one of the February batch of 9986s from JL. I'm awaiting mine. I was wondering if these (a) tended to be version 2.1 and (b) suffer from any of the humming problems mentioned in this forum

    Would be good to hear from anyone who has one of these, so I know what to expect!

    Many thanks
    Car man

    Any news carman? I want to order mine today so that i can go and collect Friday eveing, Ive got to be sure as they wont exchange the unit without a restocking fee and getting an engineer out or sending it away will be a right pain!

    Not sure if this helps.....but I got one of the last from the previous batch ...... and it was 2.1.

    JL said they had received that batch around end October and mine was manufactured on 20th Sept 2004.

    Alan,

    I suspect that the date you mention will be on every 9986. I came across this date in the SM too and made some enquiries. Seems everybodys have that date. Could mean 2 things:

    Date of manufacture or Firmware Registration date. I suspect the latter.

    Correct me if anybody has a different date in their SM.

    Well i got mine today

    s/w ver 2.0 so all good there.

    Fired it up this evening - applied jimsans settings - all going very rosey

    been on about 5-6 hours

    pretty much done and ready for bed

    mmmmm whats that i hear

    BUZZING!! goddamit

    everything was great - lovely picture/right software/zero buzzing

    and then it started - could hear it from across the room (aprox 3m) at normal volume levels and seriously annoying when muted.

    So ill be on the phone to JL first thing in the morn :(

    gutted!

    oh no! what a nightmare. Are you going to go for a replacement 9986 or a different TV?

    Has anyone else had good news from the same batch ... ? I need some good news!

    Having fiddled around with it some more this morning the buzzing seems to have reduced somewhat.

    Just got the wife to listen and she was ok with it, and even on mute now its nowhere near as loud so something wierd seems to be happening.

    But as it stands now im happy with it, i will use it over the weekend and make a decision on Monday as to if i want to get a replacement.

    btw apart from the buzzing inncident i am totaly happy with it :)

    Hi Car Man,

    I've had a 9986 from JL in my home since Sunday.

    It doesn't buzz, it had the adapters for component input and the PQ is awesome :smoke:

    Hope you get the same.
