A few weeks ago I joined and posted here to ask for recommendations between a Toshiba or a Panasonic.
I ended up going with the Panasonic L37S1, based on some feedback and also on its technical aspects, my budget and overall preference for that brand. It's a beautiful TV, the image is perfect and it's exactly what I needed.
But here's the strange thing:
When the TV is on, everything is fine.
When the TV is off, firts I hear what I think is a normal "click" sound of the Tv turning off and then, about 90% of the times, comes a slight metallic buzzing sound that comes from the bottom-back of the panel.
It sounds as if a small metallic cricket was there. (Excuse my lack of other technical words, but I'm trying to give you a clear image of what it sounds like)
Most of the time (say, 90%) that buzzing sound stays there until I turn the tv on again. But some other times in the morning after a few hours of the tv off, the sound is gone.
Some other times (maybe 10%) when I turn off the TV, that buzzing sound doesn't show up.
Like I said. This is only when the TV is off. When the TV is on, there's no buzzing sound, even when it's on MUTE or when I turn down the volume.
This sound is very low. The TV is in the living room and I can't hear it from the bedroom, but as soon as you're 10 feet away from it you can hear it. (I'm the kind of guy that can hear the static sound of a CRT tv when it's on and there's no picture showing, so I might be kind of picky about those things. My wife never hears a thing
Do any of you have, or have heard about this kind of issue with LCDs, even if they are from another brand?
Without technical expertise on the matter, I feel that the sound comes from the electric current on the back of the tv, so this may be
a normal thing.
My tv says it was produced in October 2009 and I bought it online this past December, btw. Feel free to ask questions in case I didn't provide other details.
I appreciate your feedback. Thanks!!
