Very Sad what he is going though!
I just hope folks who join this thread realize that that these e-mails in no way represent the experiences of 99.9999% of ZT Owners who are enjoying the best HDTV ever made!
You right bob it is sad...sad that a 3300$ TV needs a fan fix that will break the screen and is supposedly a high end flagship model but buzzes like a 50$ bug zapper when things get bright. Yes your right so sad that I bought this TV and now can't even try to fix it or it will crack. I'm surprised it didn't crack from cleaning the screen. To me the ZT60 was a test model. The VT60 is top of the line IMO. At least that had a model a year before (VT50). Should stuck with a 60VT. Would have the fan fix installed already from factory or would be easier to make the decision of getting it done if needed.
I am not getting into a Garman situation where I get screwed and stuck with a TV because the tech was to dumb to make sure it was right and take responsibility for it. I'm eagerly waiting for Vinnie to post when his screen cracks since one they laid it down and two didn't get one of the screws in. Wouldn't surprise me.
The ZT60 should have been a test model last year and been a refined model for this year. The capacitors are wayyyy to loud or not strong enough to handle the power this TV comes with. Guess that's what happens when you put cheap tech into a so called "flagship model".
So now I have to buy 200-300$ speakers just to mask the buzzing noise I get.
And your seriously going to tell me that 99.99% of ZT owners are trouble or problem free? Yea ok.
Unlike most in here some of us don't have retirement funds to spend or aren't millionaires that buy a new model every 6 months. Some of is have to live with our sets until they die to have a good reason to replace them. I mean Christ man some people haven't even had these sets a year yet and are already talking about upgrading to OLED (which doesn't seem to be going to well lately). And I'm the one who's nuts? That's awesome you guys can do that honestly, but I'm not rolling in can here. I got a TV that was the best out and finally something to overtake my 5020 in performance and it comes with some very very annoying issues which could prolly be easily fixed if it wasn't for this damn gapless design or fragility of the ZT.
PQ= best I've seen in a long long time
Performance, blacks, colors= tremendous jaw dropping.
Functionality and build= great aesthetics, feels very solid even on this little V stand, but my god the guts sound like they were taken out of a light that powers the world.
Other than that I crank the volume up to about 30 for the TV speakers (until I get some speakers) to drown out the buzz in quiet bright scenes. Which is why I asked you guys
If this was normal because it's only audible
On those type of scenes. Most here also have dedicated rooms and crazy surround sound that helps
You not notice a thing if you ever did.
Anyway just because I'm crazy doesn't mean these things aren't happening, so the situation I'm in pertains to people who can't afford to buy another TV and wanted something nice before it went out for good. I waited a long time to upgrade to something significant in PQ and it just has been disappointing. I like nice products but this is just too much, and I have no other solutions but to pray that if I get a tech over for the buzzing that they don't break it.
