My tv is buzzing & the sound doesn't come on when I change channels

I need a little more information. Does the TV show a picture? Do you have audio on some channels or no audio at all.
Is the noise you hear of a low frequency, i.e. low hum? One thing you might try is unplugg yo6r TV from the wall for about 60 seconds or so, plug back in and see if the problem goes away. if not contact me back with the info I asked about. thanks

Hi, I Purchased an LG 50PK350 plasma tv and I am experiencing an extremely loud, annoying buzzing sound even with the amp switched off & the sound muted. The buzzing is not constant ... the brighter...

I have this tv aswell, and yes I will confirm that it does buzz quite alot, but all plasma tvs do, it is to do with how it renders images, the buzzing can be made worse by it being close to a wall and it reflecting back. I found that my tv stand some how amplified the buzzing when i got mine. I dont think its something you can escape.

Mine i notice also when scrolling around menus seems to have lines that follow your selection....not to pleased about that

Humming sound

Samsung states - A buzzing sound from your plasma TV is normal. It is caused by the electrical charges used to create the images on the screen. The buzzing, however, should not be so loud that you can hear it when the volume on the TV is set at normal levels.It is also important to determine the type of buzzing sound. A sound like a ground hum is completely normal. This buzzing can originate near the power cord connection or from the SMPS board position on the upper back of the TV. The buzz will be more audible as contrast increases on the screen, most notably when displaying an all white screen. If the buzzing sound is loud, you may have the Contrast set too high. Lower the contrast to reduce or eliminate the buzzing.You may also have loud buzzing if the rear of your Plasma TV is too close to a wall or other hard surface. Try moving your TV away from the wall until the buzzing is minimized. [1]
If the buzzing is at a higher frequency and resembles a crackling sound (like the sound of Velcro being pulled apart), and originates from the upper middle back of the TV, you likely have a failing SMPS board. Place a support call with Samsung to have the SMPS board replaced.FP-T5084 Have a known buzzing problem with a very simple fix.If the buzzing is coming from the left or right sides of the rear and the volume can be changed by pressing lightly on those locations, you are probably hearing the vibration of the grounding springs on the back panel. Call Samsung (or whoever) and have a technician confirm the problem. The easiest fix is to insulate the offending spring by applying some felt tape.

Hello, normally this buzzing sound comes from the power supply, before you go out and replace the power supply for this noise try to lower the backlight, this might make a difference in the noise but also be very aware that your TV might be a little darker than before.

In the last month my plasma TV has developed a buzz that is really annoying as its the only thing i hear now. It can be heard sitting infront of the TV up to 5 metres away. It comes and goes but is there...

It could be the transformer, need to get it serviced. Nothing will happen but the noise will get louder and more annoying. Most of the time the transformers have a plastic plug to conceal the magnetics and the coil. The glue on the plastic loosens and can create the buzzing noise.

Annoying buzz!!!

be certain its not your cable providing the noise by being ungrounded .or interference from some other device connected or around tv.
disconnect everything except the cable.
turn off all dimmer lighting around tv. try now.
are you using a cable box, if so bypass ,plug cable directly into tv.
try sound again.
then remove cable and plug in dvd or vcr. and try audio now.
if it continues no matter,
its a warranty repair or just use external speakers ,cable boxes can control the audio to ext speakers.

Verticle lines on screen

This is a very easy fix. Your cable box is not grounded correctly. To fix this you need a AC Plug adapter. This will change your TV ac plug from a 3 wire to a 2 wire. This may sound funny, but trust me on this. I have fix a lot of TV in NY doing just this.24001fc.jpg

Buzzing Noise and TV picture is yellow

Andy, I'm thinking the buzz is from the deflection coil (yoke) on the neck of the tube or the power supply. Probably not the high voltage as you can hear the "buzz". If it's really that annoying, you can take a length of rubber tubing (no metal) and listen to the buzz coming from the chassis kind of like a stethoscope. STAY AWAY FROM THE HIGH VOLTAGE, please. The yellow picture sounds like a blue chroma failure. A tube can be rejuvinated if need be but that's a job for a pro. Hope this helps.
