Question about LG 50PX5D 50 in. Plasma HDTV

1 Answer

Humming noise Is it normal for our 50" plasma hdtv to have a humming noise? We've had it a year and about a month ago it started humming. It hangs on the wall and was install by the Best Buy techs. We don't have hd cable, just normal comcast cable going through it.

    We did have it diagnosed and the technician found nothing wrong until they brought it back home and found a bad wire.

Most times a humming noise in a Plasma tv is associated with high altitude. If you live over 3500 ft. and when you first turn on the unit is has a slight buzz and it gets worse as it warms up then you have what is referred to as high altitude sickness. You shoul contact the manufacture with this problem and the should exchange the unit with one tested for proper operation at high altitude. If you do not live at high altitude then there is a problem in the unit that should be diagnosed.

Hi, your color wheel needs to be replaced, the bearings fail causing the grinding noise, the new ones use "air bearings" so they are supposed to last much longer, video-tek
