Just got my 60" f5500 yesterday and it looks great. I even like the pentile RGBG.
Anyways it makes a really loud buzzing sound. A phone call with a tech implied that it was transformer buzzing which is normal for this "entry level" tv. We are talking a directional buzz that is very loud 11-14 feet from set sitting dead center. It disappears if I move left or right or sit on a bean bag at 6-8 feet.
My question is, do you think a repair or replace could reduce this noise?
If not, I am prepared to live with it, but I am going to experiment with acoustic foam, electric tape baffles, adding rubber washers to the SMPS to isolate the 60 hz vibration that may be rattling the back chassis, etc...
I bought from shady east coast dealer with anti-consumer return policy so it's Samsungs warranty or aftermarket hack or bust.
Any thoughts guys? Thank you.
