Re: buzzing

The noise is caused by dust on one of the toroidal transformers(usually a round looking thing with wire wound around it). Go to the back of your television and try and pinpoint were the sound is coming from. Turn your television off and blow it out with compressed air if it is close to air vents in the television. If you cant see it you might have to open your television back panel.

Re: buzzing

Go to the rear of the set and listen to where the noise is coming from, squeeze the top corners and see if the sound get muffled, take the back off the set and line the edges of the back cover with some insulation foam that is used around doors, it should quiet it down some, the panels buzz in most 42 inch and above plasmas and it's normal, you can also put RTV silicon around the transformers and large capacitors, they have a tendency to produce a loud humming or buzzing sound also

Re: buzzing

  1. The buzz is related to the intensity of the light. An all-white background will produce the loudest buzz. Turning the brightness down (cinema mode) makes for the lowest buzz. Panasonic told me it was from a bad ground in the Time Warner cable. I have not tested this by seeing if a DVD makes the same sound yet. I will bet it will. Not a solution; just a direction.

I have a proscan 42LA45H 42 in television that has started making a buzzing noise from the back. What is causing this, and what do I need to do to fix.

If picture and sound is Ok, and only this buzzing sound is heard from the back of the TV, It should be due to core soose of some ferrite cored transformers inside, especially to the power supply regulator board of the TV. Open the back cover of the TV and swtich it ON. Listeen very carefully which transfromer makes the buzzing noise. Just trouch and press the core of the transformer suspected with some non-cunductive material like glass rod, or a stick of dry wood. You can identify the transformer that makes noise by this way. After identifying the exact transformer; switch OFF the set, unplug it from mains socket, apply some "Super Glue" like fast boanding glue to the joint of core of that transformer. Allow sometime for the glue to set. This will solve the buzzing sound problem of your TV. OK

Have just bought an LG37LD450. Buzzing noise coming from the components at the back of the TV. Annoying. Otherwise TV perfect. Definitely not sound problems because buzzing noise still there when on Mute....

Had this problem as well. Ran through a laundry list of possible solutions. Finally found that the key is to increase the backlight (Access via [Menu] [Picture] ) to 100% and the noise goes away. If this is bad for the life of the backlight, just pray the backlight burns out inside year 1 while the warranty is still valid!

Loud buzzing noise on vizio tv

It sound like you may have sound processor problem which is part of the main board, I would also look at the 12vdc from power supply to make sure it is clean DC.

Okay would love to help you with this issue but most good reults if you choose to chat with me! The prblem with these color changes are most have to due with the aparatus your connecting to the Tv and not the Tv itself. But if you got it on all things its a decoder issue have the tech check the decoder. You will be glad you did.

Part number for the samsung le52m87bd backlight inverter


I also have a SAMSUNG LE52M87 LCD TV and I have the same
ANOYING BUZZ comming from ( I think ) backlight converter. - I am
almost 100% that its because of the backlight inverter while the sound shifts frequency when backlight is changed ( from 1 - 10 ), but the volume of the buzz stays the same. Only the tone changes. I have this TV for a year now and havent realy noticed until now, so I think it started buzzing recently, because I didnt hear it before ( and I got realy sensitive hearing :) ) ...


PLEASE post what happened when ( if ) you changed the inverter,
or what did you do to solve the problem ...

Many thanks in advance!

Buzzing noise, sound but no picture

It sounds as if the lamp needs to be replaced. The buzzing sound you hear is the ballast attemting to fire the lamp.
