Question about Samsung LN-S3251D 32 in. LCD HDTV
I just purchased a new Samsung LN-T3253H LCD tv from Circuit City on 12/2/07. After a couple of hours of watching tv on it I started noticing a humming/buzzing sound coming from the tv. I called Samsung about the problem and i was told to unplug the tv, let set a few minutes and plug back in. I did this and the sound problem was still there. I boxed up the tv and carried it back to CC for a new tv. Got the new tv home and had no problems with it until a couple of days later where the same issue with the sound started again. I have also tried to correct the issue by unpluging everything from the tv except for the power cord and the sound problem still exists. I have the tv plugged into a surge protector that i also purchased new from CC, and have tried plugging the tv directly into the wall outlet thinking this might solve the problem and that the surge protector may have been causing the issue but that was not the case. Sound still could be heard. Now the sound has gotten to the point that after the tv has been on for awhile the humming/buzzing noise can be heard over the sound of the movie/show i am watching and is very annoying and noticeable. What you suggest I do and is this a common problem? Thanks
PEOPLE, YOU NEED TO GO BACK TO THE STORE, BUY THE SAME TV AGAIN, SWAP THE TV'S AT HOME AND RETURN THE "OLD" TV IN THE "NEW" BOX WITH THE NEW RECEIPT. IN THE CASE OF TOO MANY RETURNS, HAVE A FRIEND, MOM, DAD, SISTER, GIRLFRIEND TO BUY ONE FOR YOU AND DO THE SWAP LATER.
NOTE: I REALLY HATE DOING THIS TO THE STORES, BUT IF YOU PAY FOR SOMETHING IT SHOULD LAST LONGER THAN 30-40 DAYS. PROBLEM SOLVED! :)

This is a silent recall by Samsung for many of their LCD HD TVs. Mine just got picked up 30 minutes ago for warranty repair. A coil on the power supply circuit board is the problem. Samsung had installed a cheap coil which is defective.

Mine is a POS too. I switched out 4 of them all with this problem. I'm still within thirty days and CC won't take it back because they claim "i've exchanged it too much". I'M FURIOUS!!

I finally got mine fixed. All the 3253h have this problem. It took two service trips because Samsung messed up the service bulletin. I had a court date and everything for my local CC, but I finally got the issue resolved. There is a choke around a coil on the power supply board, when the tv is warm that is what is making the noise. The coil/choke was replaced with a new version and the sound is gone. Strange but this is not a component level fix. A new component gives you the same problem. Either way I'm happy now
