Question about Samsung LN-S4051D 40 in. LCD Television
I recently had my speakers and main audio board replaced by a Samsung authorized repair center to correct this issue. About a week later, the vibration has returned, mainly noticeable when watching a dvd and only during certain frequencies. My speakers are mounted by what appears to be rubber posts but the speakers are not actually screwed to the housing, they "float" in the housing by design. Would some sort of felt clamshelled between the front and back housing seal correct this? Is this a common problem with LCD TVs? I've heard of the speaker housing itself being wrapped in thin foam?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I'm not getting anywhere with Samsung or the repair center. I'm under extended warranty, do you suggest I request a refund or exchange?
Me again. I removed the rear plastic housing of my TV a few weeks ago on a hunch that the resonance frequency of the two speakers were matching that of the plastic rear housing. Yep. Once I removed the plastic housing (about 8 screws), all speaker vibrations ceased. It's been fine ever since. However, I don't particularly care to have the back off of it, although I see no high voltage parts like a yoke, etc. sticking out or within reach. It's also not mounted to a wall and is in a position where folks can't easily get there hands into the back. I'd still write to the CEO of Samsung since this is a wider problem that they should address without charging a tech fee.

The problem very well could be with the DVD player because the disc is spinning very very fast and it might be causing the vibration thru out the chassis. Is this only with DVD ? You mention mainly DVD so I would like to know can you notice what type of scenes are causing it with TV ? Maeaning bright scenes or dark or something else?
Hope this is of some help. If you still can request that they come again as the problem isn't fixed. They might replace instead of coming again.
