    I've seen a lot of discussion in the US forums on problems with a diaode causing the Panasonic 42PA20 to buzz and shut off. Seems a problem with any models made before Sept 2003.

    Does anyone know if this problem also applies to the UK version or not?

    I'm thinking of getting one of these (or it's 37" cousin). I've read how I may be better off with the PW6 monitor, but I want something complete like this, that the kids can just turn and watch easily, and that I can also easily connect to my VCR and "all in one" DVD/surround system. But all this talk of the diaode problem scares me.
