Panasonic th-42pwd5bx - rear screen noise - please help!!

Hi,I had this plasma tv for 1 month and since I bought a new stand and connected it to an amplifier am having a strange noise coming from the rear of the panel. The noise is hard to describe although after trying to disconnect all my equipment(amplifier, dvd, wireless box)from underneath the screen is still there. Any suggestions?

Sounds like the fans is there a hest source nearby or underneath, plasmas suffer severly from this thats why they so cheap everybody buying lcd at the moment no heat or screen burn issue but not as good a picture(when they are cool) the gasses distort the picture when hot hence cooling fans hope this helps ps warranty void if over a fireplace or next to a rad dont tell you that do they!!!! belly

Since the noise started with the new stand, I would suspect vibration as the noise. Did you attach the new stand to the plasma with screws? If the stand is not the issue, then, a fan inside could be making the noise. I have found the flex cables from various boards inside the set causing strange noises. Touch the back of the set and see if the noise goes away or changes in specific areas. When Plasma Panels are set in a corner, they seem to make a louder noise than usual. It could be the panel as well. If the set is one month old and bought from a retail store, then, it should be under warranty and a servicer could be called. Let me know what you found out.

No Audio on Multiple Plasma tv's connected via 1*2 hdmi splitter

Too many connections here---likely a hookup issue if both sets work alone and frankly the wrong way to do this.

Noise from hitachi 42PD5000

The noise is coming from one of the plasma driver boards. There are 2 inside the set. These are essentially power supplies for the plasma itself and contain many capacitors. The noise you hear is some oscillation inside a cap or two. This is an indication that one or more components have drifted from their rated value. While the set will continue to work for a while, that board should be replaced. If the board fails, 1/2 of the picture will be blank or the set will not start at all. Call around to get the cost of that board. Please note that continued use of the set WILL NOT cause any harm. This is an annoyance only at this point.

Tv making clicking noise while I am watching

Hello everyone,

I bought the model TH-50PX60U June of 2007. I've been hearing the very annoying clicking noise as well.

Since the TV has a one year warranty, I just called Panasonic and they've scheduled a tech to come over and take a look at it three days from now.

I will publish the results on the same page.
