. Very disappointing. My television is on a stand and sits about 2 ft away from the wall. I sit 9 ft away from the set on a couch. I can go back as far as 15 ft back and still hear the buzz pretty clearly. I also can hear it over normal volume. The only way I can drown out the buzz is to have my stereo on at an above average volume, even then during dialog I can hear the buzz. The weird thing is that the buzz isn't as bad when I get up close and listen to it. It's MUCH worse from a distance.
I tried plugging the television into other outlets in the house trying different inputs etc... None of that matters. The only thing I didn't try is to put the magnets on the power cord. I will give that a try but I doubt that will do anything.
The buzzing to me is unacceptable. I will be calling Best Buy to have them swap it out. Hopefully I have better luck next time
Well, my PN58C8000 also has a slight buzz/hum. Another person has gone through two PN58C8000's and also they have the same buzz.
Do you really think there is a PN58/63C8000 out there that doesn't buzz at all? I was told that a plasma of this size will indeed buzz. For me, the buzz is only really noticeable when you sit dead in front of the TV set. I've tried sitting to the left/right couches, and don't hear it. Also, if I lie down on the floor (I know, silly), I don't hear it either.
When I put my ear behind the top left of the TV, I can hear the same buzzing noise.
I wonder if some sort of sound dampening material would help here????
