    I recently bought a hig def TV (Model HLN507W) and I hear an annoying high pitched noise (similar to the noise heard when recessed lights are left on slightly). It can clearly be heard when the TV is muted. I tried taking off all connections. The sound appears to be coming from the light unit and comes on as soon as that unit powers up and stay on. This annoying pitch can be heard when the TV sound is also in a quite part of the story. What are my options?, is this a known issue? Is this expected?
    DOes anyone have any info???
    Thanks

    Hi Scott

    I know nothing about the Samsung TV you quote. Though if the set uses DLP to produce an image then I'd hazard a quess that the noise you are hearing may be mechanical noise coming from the spinning colour wheel. Don't know what could be done about it though!:confused:

    Fan or Colour wheel, I want my money back. I have a 61" Samsung DLP and the noise you speak of is more annoying then anything...

    There has to be someone else who's come across this...?

    Either way, I plan to talk to the store I bought it at tomorrow... If I get any info, I'll post it here...
