Re: buzz from back of the tv

It is likely that one of the transfomers is buzzing due to heat and laminations or wire is ringing.
It should not cause any issue except annoy you. it must be replaced. or glued back down which is usually very difficult as they are wrapped and/or sealed.
Only way to find out is to open the unit and trace it down.
If it is dust buildup then you should be hearing a crackling. zzzztt sound.

Emerson tv problems

If you are using a cable or satelite box, the problem could be from mismatch of the volume level between the TV & the source. This is solved by properly adjusting the 2 volume levels to eliminate the buzz.

The issue could also be either your speakers or Input/Output PCB.

Also be sure it is coming from the speakers.There have been some issues of buzzing caused by vibrating transformers on circuit boards,

Hdtv optical audio output works except in tv mode

Unplug one of the RCA plugs one at a time, see if sound changes to no buzz but one ear channel only. The buzz can occur when RCA is not connected correctly and the video feed is put onto the earth wire of both audio feeds.

Hi there I have had the Tv for 5 years and it's

I would first check any of your inputs (i.e. cable, satellite, DVD player, ect...). If you hear this buzzing sound regardless of what input you are using, then it has to be the TV. If it's the TV causing it, audio is produced on the main board or A board named by Panasonic. It is the board that has the A/V inputs on it (cable, HDMI, component). This model has 2 different main boards it could use either TNPH0721ACS or TNPH0721ATS. As a TV repair technician, I often use Tri-State Module and would recommend them for parts. If you don't know which board you need, their customer service is helpful. I hope that helps.

Try another input and another source such as a DVD player. If you still get the buzzing sound, you could have a faulty power supply output or a fault in the audio circuit of the main board.

Tv makes buzzing sound all the time no matter what volume level

A few steps to take to narrow down issue:

1. With sound all the way off do you hear the buzz?

2. If no buzz that way try the rear inputs with a DVD etc to see if same issue.

If the buzz is there with no sound (turned all the way down) and via rear inputs you have a transformer (most common area is power supply) that is vibrating hard enough to create the sound or buzz.

Only two ways if that is the case to deal with it---replace the board it is coming from (have seen brand new sets with this) or in some cases I have been able to locate the offending part and apply hot glue to it and stop the buzz.

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.

Plazma TV buzzing noise

I have the same problem I can hear buzzing over the volume of the tv into the 30 range. I've had a tech out 3 times and he's coming out for a fourth. He's changed to power supplies and is bringing the 3rd next visit. From what I've read it has either to do with power supplies or grounding strips.

Polaroid lcd hdtv 27" buzzzz

thre are several components that can make a buzzing sound, especially a bad power component or capacitor. check the capacitors to make sure they are installed in the board correctly. the stripe on the cap must line up with the white mark on the board under it. remove the back panel lay the tv down on a blanket turn it on and see if you can isolate the noise component by ear up close. and visually check for swollen capacitors the top will be pushed up round if bad if good it will be flat on top. warning if tv is less than a year old make the place you bought it replace it. so you dont void the warranty.
