Haven't we heard enough of this discussion about "Verizon Wireless" on the AVS "HDTV Programming > Verizon FiOS HDTV" thread?

The fact that it is a refurb makes me suspicious. All you might be able to do is get a refund. I'd try for a NEW ("factory fresh") one. Perhaps you can get a refund and then buy a new one...

What are better blacks? Many folks are perfectly willing to accept "black clipping" to get the impression of better blacks, while only getting "more blacks".

Buzzing is a defect that happens every so often. If it does buzz, then return it (it is a legitimate reject).

No problem with this on my PN6900, or any of the 2 other LG sets in my house. I wonder if there is a defect with your set. The other issue could be room light flooding the IR sensor on your TV.
