Turning it off doesnt change it to 60Hz. You do that at the source.

Also, make sure your source is capable of 23.976FPS playback, or you will have judder no matter what TV or settings you have.

Right.... but switching CMS off does remove the judder. Same too w/ changing the source's input to 60Hz.

To clarify, how do I check the source (i.e. a BD disk for example) if it handles 23.976fps? The input on my 51D550 says 1080/24Hz doesn't imply this, but rather just the TV's output? Thanks.

All films are 23.976. The TV says 24hz though I think when you play that content.

So, an update, after the repair depot replaced the panel in my TV, it still buzzes. Now today samsung is bringing me a new one and taking the old one back (the repair place returned the buzzer to me 2 weeks ago).

Just a question, when mounting this TV on the wall, I removed 4 screws on the back which are just above and below the mounting holes. I believe the manual said to do so, but should I be doing this? I cannot fit the mount flush if those screws are left in place.

Thanks!

Juched, let me know if they fix your buzzing. My panel is being replaced for lines and buzzing Tuesday

When they replaced the entire panel, it still buzzed. So either a different component is buzzing, or the new panel had the same flaw.

They just delivered my new TV, will need to set it up tonight and test.

I owned this TV for 4 days, and then I returned it for buzzing. Good luck to you guys.
post #1599 of 1918
i had a tech out a couple days ago replaced power supply and y board said he couldnt hear it but his sinuses were bothering him and he tells me if i still hear it its not going away so maybe try hanging some burlap behind it to dampen it lol.so i get back with samsung and they say if at 11 feet away and volume at 15 is the rule who the hell blasts their tv at 15 at night watching a movie.

The whole "It's just a result of the technology, and is totally normal, and shouldn't bother you" stance of the manufactures is absurd.............. If I wanted to hear a 4K volt transformer buzzing in my house whenever I turn my TV on, I would purchase and install said transformer.

D Bone, you are now responding to every single post that comes up, regarding a display that you no longer own. We call that trolling. Go somewhere else.

What?? Like hell. I replied here, to a thread regarding a TV that I owned, discussing the very reason I returned it. TROLLING?? Hardly. These forums are for EVERYONE to come get help, and my post was aimed at helping someone who might stop by to get an opinion on a TV before he or she buys. If you don't like what I have to say, than that's your problem, so deal with it.

Trolling my butt.

You are trolling. And trying to start bs arguments. Plasmas buzz. Some louder than others. Always have most likely always will. These especially for not being on the higher end of the plasma market

Agression. SOP for a troll when he gets called on his crap.

All plasmas do buzz, some abnormally. I bought the 59d550 for my father two weeks ago. It has a directional buzz from the center of the tv that sounds like a static buzz. You hear this as soon as you sit down center to the tv. If you stand up, no buzz. If you lean over to the left or right no buzz. It is in the center. Doesn't matter if you are 1 ft away or 15 feet away. Luckily my father cannot hear the buzz even when i turn the volume off but i can hear it and is distracting when there are quiet scenes with dialogue or when you want to watch with volume 12 or below at night. There is no directional buzz on my 2007 Panny and 2008 Samsung Plasma. I returned the D550 to BB (Dec build) and they ordered me one since they were out of stock. Got the new one yesterday (January 2012 mfr date) and has the same directional buzz. Upon researching this from owners on amazon, best buy site and here they all talk about this center directional buzz which is also present on their high end models. My father will keep this set since he cannot hear it but for me who is looking to get a larger set I will not look at a Samsung until this is fixed. I personally tried out a C series and a Dseries 490 and all three had this directional buzz. I love the picture quality on the Samsung sets (still like my 2008 model) but why can't this be fixed. Ever since this went to the thinner panels and one pane glass there seems to be more complaints of this directional buzzing.

Got my replacement... it has a buzz, but a bit quieter... going to mount and and test for a few days.
post #1611 of 1918
i can handle a bit quieter. im PRAYING my TV got louder because of the panel being a defect. Or I may just have to off center my TV to where I sit
post #1612 of 1918
Well, it is still annoying... the picture is great, but the buzz. My 42" Samsung Plasma C Series is perfectly silent.
post #1613 of 1918
Damn that bad news for me. Man i may have to just move the tv or buy a stand or something. That sucks

If your Plasma TV makes a buzzing sound when it is turned on, this is normal. It's caused by the electrical charges that are used to power the pixels that create the images on the screen. The buzzing, however, should not be so loud that you can hear it when the volume on the TV is set at normal levels.

If your Plasma TV is buzzing loudly, follow these steps:

Set the volume of the TV to the setting you normally use.
Stand 10-15 feet away. Perform a sound test (B,C, and D series models Menu> Support> Self Diagnostic> Sound Test)If you do not hear the buzz, your Plasma TV is working normally.
If you continue to hear a loud buzz when you are 10-15 feet from the TV, return to the TV and see if any cables are resting against the metal back cover of the TV. If cables are resting against the back panel, reposition them so that they do not rest against the back panel and see if that reduces the buzzing.
If repositioning the cables does not reduce the buzzing, remove all connection cables from the TV and uplug the TV for about 30 seconds.
Plug the TV's power cord back into the power outlet in the WALL; not a power strip, and turn it on without anything connected.
Perform a sound test (B,C, and D series models Menu> Support> Self Diagnostic> Sound Test) with the volume between 15-20 and standing 10-15 feet away, can you hear the buzz over the sound test?
If you don't hear the buzzing with nothing connected and performing a sound test as instructed above in step 6, your TV is operating within specficiations. The buzzing may be caused by overly large connection cables, the cables resting on the back of the television, interferance caused from a connected device, a faulty power strip, or an echo from the enviroment. Experiment with different cables until the buzzing is no longer present, as this is not an issue with your TV.
If you can hear the buzzing with nothing connected and performing a sound test as instructed above in step 6, Lower the Brightness, Contrast, and Cell light values in the picture menu by half. Re-test using step 6 after lowering these values. If that still does resolve the buzzing, You can call 1-800-SAMSUNG or Click Here to fill out an online service request to begin the service process

Important: Plasma TVs do not operate properly at approximately 6500 feet (1950 meters) or above. If you attempt to operate a Plasma TV above or near that altitude, it will buzz very loudly. Unfortunately, there is no way to stop the buzzing at that altitude. However, the loud buzzing should stop when you operate the TV below 6500 feet.

no wonder mine is silent. I'm at Sea level.

Does the D550 play 3D Full-SBS, or only Half-SBS? And does the type of glasses used matter too (i.e. will the basic models 3050 / 3100 work too for 3D full-SBS, assuming it works in D550)? So far I've tried only Half-SBS as their sizes are quite large already, but if full-SBS works, I'd like to get some since the quality of half-sbs is somewhat wanting.

Edit: On 2nd thought, I think it won't work for 1080p Full-SBS since our 1080p panel won't be able to handle twice the resolution (i.e. 1080p x 2), am I correct?
post #1617 of 1918
how are the blacks on this TV? I've read they are iffy?
post #1618 of 1918
I have a question...

When I hook my Samsung PN51D550 to my PC using an HDMI cord...I'm having issues with which resolution to use.

When I use 1440x900, everything looks great.

But 1920x1080 looks pretty BAD. It's very dark and grainy. I've tried messing with ATI video card settings and TV settings but no to avail...

Anyone have any input? Thanks!
post #1619 of 1918
Change P.Size to Screen Fit and try 1920x1080p again. It should be sharp as hell then.

It was actually already on screen fit. I have the TV as the extended display and its darker and grainer than 1440x900
