Buzzing noise from plasma tv.....is this normal?

Bought myself a new plasma 10 days ago, the LG50PK350. Fantastic telly, great picture on it. One wee problem though...

Everytime theres a lot of white on the screen i get a slight buzzing noise coming from the t.v. Its not that bad but now ive noticed it i'm listening for it all the time. Tried reducing contrast etc, made no difference.

Is this normal from plasmas?

My old Samsng plasma done this after 36months use. Luckily I had a 3yr guarantee from Costco. Wheeled it into store, and got a full refund.With what I spent on it 2 years previously, it got a big upgraded telly for the less money than what was handed to me!

Are you watching BeeBeeC?

Yes plasmas do buzz (especially on high contrast scenes), yes it is normal even among high end plasmas and no it's not likely to be a fault. Some LG's in particular are notorious for it, check AVForums or similar for more info.

I can hear the t.v buzz when i stand right close to it fair enough, but cant hear it when i'm sitting watching it, just goes a hell of a lot louder when the screen goes white.

havent noticed it when i'm on the xbox though.
Worth trying a different HDMI lead?

It is normal for the buzz, especially on white. However, the level of noise does vary quite a lot so it is hard to gauge if it is a fault without hearing it.

From what you just said above I would say that it is probably normal. I have had about 10 plasmas and they all do it.
They seem very loud if you stick your head behind them when it is a white screen. Made worse if the noise is bouncing off a wall right behind it.

A couple of people saying not normal, a couple saying it is normal!

I know up close its normal to hear it buzz. When i'm sitting around 10 feet away in my chair i cant here any buzz at all, except when theres white on the screen.
as an example, the Argos and asda adverts both end with their logo on a white screen and i hear the telly buzz.

Buzzing to some degree (can vary by brand, model and even batch) is perfectly normal on plasmas and your description doesn't sound like a fault. Like I said take a look/ask on AVForums, somewhere people actually know what they're talking about when it comes to these things rather than on a shopping forum.....(_;)

If you're not happy with the level of buzzing then send it back. It may be the unit or it may be the model line. If it's the model then you can either decide to live with it or try a different model/make.

I have never noticed our plasma screen buzzing. I agree with master_chief.
#14
ive never noticed our plasma making a buzzing noise , tbh i would get a replacement and try that as you have only had it 10 days and its something that is clearly going to bug you (_;)

i have the pk590 (next model up) and mine doesnt buzz on white scenese. just gone and tested it.
try putting the white wash facility on in menu/options/ISM

Had another wee listen to it tonight, and can barely hear it even with the white wash on. Maybe i'm being too picky.

It sounded a lot louder this morning when i got up but the living room was freezing and maybe it was a wee bit louder due to the telly warming up a bit.
