    Hi Folks,

    I recently took the plunge and bought my plasma :clap:

    I have had it for about 1 week and noticed a tiny buzz coming from the rear of the unit, on both the left + right hand side.

    My question's: :lesson:


    1: Is this ok, or should the unit be completely silent.
    2: Should I leave it another week / weeks to bed in.


    Any help / comments appreciated.


    Thanks.

    Hi Morgb

    Congratulation on getting your Plasma.

    I get a slight buzz on me as well (503 HDE) but it seems to be noticeable with high contrast images (high white levels).

    It's almost like the screen is complaining, the same way as CTRs complain when the signal is over a volt. I only notice if the volume is very low (Dolby shaking the house), but against that you have no fan noise.

    As to whether you should be concerned, I didn't notice this buzz for ages and have put it down to the plasma working normally. Most electrical equipment makes noise of some sort or another.

    Hope this helps,

    Miles.

    It is perfectly normal as Miles@9 describes. This is the mode of operation. Mine has been going like this since January the 7th, the day I installed it. However, You do need to turn the volume right down and go stand next to the screen in order to hear it...
