Let's examine a few things since fault is the central theme of your comments.
Over in the S64 owner's poll thread occurring after
you posted the above quoted text, you state that you might return your S64 due to "blurring" (not specific whether you meant motion blurring or 'downshifting' to 480 res or what). Although that is a later post than the above quote, you don't mention anything at all about buzzing there..? How can that be if buzzing became so bad that you are "out a TV"?? Are we to reasonably conclude that you changed your mind about buzzing?
Next, your statements to Cravit8 about whether you knew and accepted what "at your own risk" means seem like a (intentionally?) moving target. On the one hand, you say you accepted the risk, on the other hand, your comments make clear that you'd like to assign blame to me or to this thread.Let's evaluate what took place:
1.) You decided not to follow my very first posted advice in the thread that is even termed therein with the warning that it is "safest"
... and then 2.) By your own statements, you followed that decision by deciding you need not read the entirety of a very short thread (3 pages at the time of your complaint) even while ignoring first advice.
3.) Following those actions, you proceeded placing your TV at risk. 4.) And next, you believe that thread content could somehow have convinced you not to take this irrational course of action? 5.) You don't state what modification experiment covered in the thread allegedly caused increased buzzing. How can I post a warning about buzzing since you didn't say what you did or whether you can isolate which modification may have caused it? Did you not read repeated comments in the thread about buzzing?
That you choose to try to assign blame after such reckless actions and bizarre reasoning is absurd.
It's not unusual for anyone to be angry when they make a mistake. However, your anger towards me or towards this thread is obviously misplaced. I suggest you stop this and accept responsibility for your own mistakes.
You need to get your 'facts' right: Warnings are not "at the end" as you stated. Had you read even the entirety of post number 1, it seems undeniable you would then know that warnings begin there... first in the title with the word "experiments" and then right in post 1 - the first warning stating what is "safest" in bullet 1 followed by other warnings IN POST ONE. In fact, the thread is rife with warnings... from beginning to end - almost ridiculously so. And though you (conveniently?) neglected to say so, there is already repeated mention of buzzing when the back panel screws are loose.
Next, you imply the thread is useless since most of the experiments didn't help. Actually, the reasonable person will see that is perhaps the greatest value of the thread. By knowing what didn't work, readers will save their time and reduce their risk by knowing what NOT to try. How could you have missed this plain fact?
As outlined in the above paragraph, your comments are incorrect and sometimes insulting. It is good to know that AVS forum moderators do not tolerate insulting comments. Maturity is an expectation for participation here.
I view your comments not as a polite and perhaps valuable suggestion. Instead, though done with somewhat clever spin, I view your comments as an impolite and illogical accusation. Therefore, hereafter, I am not editing post 1.
In that way, thread participants will see what took place. I am confident the majority opinion will be reasonable and accurate. I believe the reasonable person will agree that if someone will decide to proceed recklessly as outlined above, no amount of warnings will stop them. That this thread has a bumper crop of repeated warnings only proves the point.
Regarding buzzing fixes: Other than repairs by a qualified TV tech, I know of none. I know how a back panel is properly removed. However: Since you do not fully accept the meaning and gravity of "at your own risk", a friendly suggestion is that you attempt no further DIY projects.
For others considering internal sound deadening for whatever reason: Please consider that thermal deflection will be different with material inside than outside. Running temps will be higher or lower; I suspect higher. Also, most sound deadening sheets and aerosols are not rated for high temps. Some autobody type deadeners stay soft and sticky and flowing even when not at high temp. They may flow severely and cause damage if subjected to heat. Finally, when I had my TV's back panel screws loose and it buzzed as outlined a long while ago in the thread, the sound seemed to emanate straight out the upper vents and NOT primarily from the sheet metal of the back panel. We certainly cannot cover any vents so I seriously doubt the idea will help. IMHO, probably best to can this particular idea - no offense intended.
Some have placed home type sound deadening foam tiles or such on the wall behind the TV and some say it helps. However, variables like possibly restricting air flow to a wall mounted TV or even just working near any TV make it all 100% "at your own risk" and zero percent "at MY own risk".
edit: It's 3 weeks later now and you've not replied. If you want to post a warning about buzzing allegedly being increased from doing anything in here, feel free to do so at any time. You'll obviously need to post which modification you think caused it and why you believe this. It won't be at the beginning of the thread but that's fine. The thread is short and is already flooded with warnings. While you're at it, an apology would be nice, too.
