Question about Flat Panel Televisions

Buzzing noises + white lines

1.) As soon as I connected the power I heard a buzzing sound coming from
the television (near the power supply).

2.) There is a buzzing sound coming from the speakers that only goes away if the volume on the cable box is at full. Even then if the TV volume were to put up past 50% it's audible again.

3.) Lastly there is a large white horizontal 'bar' which traverses the
screen from bottom to top. This is most visible when there is a solid
background, the darker the background the more visible the bar.

Panasonic responded to my email in less than 5 minutes! they basically say that it's my cable box or an issue with my home's electrical... 2nd opinions?
Thanks a lot.

Try getting one of your friends (preferably a pepper) to stand back and loose a few rounds into your system. I have a guy in mind who excels at this. Let me know if you want his contact info.
He comes cheap and he will say "hello" to ur little friends!

Buzzing noise

It could be feedback from your speakers... Make sure your power cord is grounded and if you have a sub or surround sound don't set the ac power adapter near them.

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

I turn the tv on and there is a constant buzzing sound what is it?

If the picture is correct in all resepect, and only a buzzing sound only comes from its inside circuit, it will be due to a loose core fittings, on any one or two ferrite cored transformers inside the power supply sytem. There are transformeres of small and large types, both in power supply and other boards. We have to find out which transformer makes this buzz sound during working. For this, you have to open your TV, and power it ON, and listen the the sound carefully, and detect the transformer which makes this noise. After finding the exact one, this loose core contact can be fixed with the help of Super Glue or similar fast acting adhesive. Just put three or four drops of adhesive in between the core will rectify your problem.
If there is no picture at all and a buzzing sound like this is heard from your TV, the inside circuit has some short in it and has to be detected and rectified. OK>
