Samsung SlimFit with an annoying buzz

Hi there,

I have a two-year-old Samsung 27" SlimFit HDTV (TX-S2782H) that makes a surprisingly loud buzzing sound when turned on and the volume is muted (or when there's no av input going to the set). With the volume turned up, it's not too bad, but it's still audible.

It?s a cheap set in a spare room, but I figure it should have a few more years of usage in it. I'm using a monster surge suppresser/power filter... not much nearby for delivering interference... Any ideas?

I have the same problem with my 42" JVC (EDTV) Plasma.

It makes a kind of 'chirping' noise?

I had a repair man come over and look at mine, he said it was the power supply.

Ground Loop

In reply to: Power Supply

Sounds like you both have problems with what's called a ground loop. I had this problem with my PS3. You can try plugging the TV into another wall outlet. If that doesn't fix the problem, buy one of those cheap 3 prong to 2 prong plug adapters designed for outlets that only have two holes. Make sure you rip off the little grounding tab on the adapter. This fixed my problem and I'm almost positive it wont harm your electronics in any way.
