    I have also spoken with Panasonic and they advised me that the set has 4 fans within it and this is what can be heard.

If the buzzing is coming from the set itself rather than the speakers, then this is normal. The bussing should only be loud enough to hear when you are close to the set. If it is loud enough to hear from across the room, it is not normal and could be a sign that the power supply is starting to fail. Which case best describes your situation?

Panasonic PT-56LCX66 buzzing noise when i push power


I'm going to take a guess and say that the buzzing noise and burning smell was either a transformer or a blown capacitor (more likely). It's likely that your old lamp was still good and there is a problem at the circuit level.

If you or someone you know is comfortable with electronics, you may want to open it up and take a look. If there is a blown capacitor it will be obvious. Take a look at badcaps.net or Youtube for help on identifying them.

If you don't feel comfortable working on the inside of a TV it's probably time to get a new one. Repairs will not be cheap and they won't be worth it.

Buzzing noise on that model is usually caused by a fan or the color wheel.

I have a samsung hln437n and I have a loud, high pitch buzzing noise which stays on all the time. It sounds like it is coming from the lamp. Any idea what the problem is?


Could be a slightly loose lamp connection and/or slightly loose lamp module - especially if you
have big trucks or railway tracks near your place (like me). Try powering down the TV set, use the
instructions that came with your TV to remove the lamp module, then simply re-install the lamp
module (also known as "reseating the lamp module").

If the buzzing noise persists, then
its coming from a component near the lamp (such as the power supply).
If there's a transformer in the power supply that's buzzing, then its about to fail.

Panasonic PT-51HX40B turns itself off and has no video, no lights


The buzzing noise that you were earing came from a bad ballast, and because of the bad ballast your lamp must have got out also, and that is were you are getting the burned smel from and also that is why you are no longer geteting any picture either.

So in this case you would have to replace the ballast board and the lamp on your tv set.

Bulb has gone out and now makes a loud noise


The noise depending on where it came from may be normal. You wont be sure unless a TV repairman checks the boards to know for sure, or you could replace the bulb and hope for the best.

My Panasonic LCD had a little pop sound and we completely lost our picture. I just bought a new lamp TY-LA1000 and I turn on the TV and the switch color goes from flashing Green to flashing yellow 2 blinks...


You probably need a new ballast.It is a high failure part.If you listen at the back of the set you can hear the ballast make a short buzzing noise every time it tries to light the lamp.If you don't hear this then your ballast is probably bad.
