Just got my 60E7000 yesterday, got it out of the box, installed the stand, set it up and plugged it in to my APC power conditioner, connected the HDMI cable from my SAT receiver, turned it on and BUZZ, BUZZ, BUZZ. I'm just sitting here scratching my head trying to figure out why Samsung let's this happen. The last 3 generations of Samsung plasma's the C, D, and now the E model plasma's have had buzzing problems that they seem to do nothing to fix.
I did my homework before I brought this plasma, I knew about the "Samsung Buzz" I read this forum and the other threads regarding Samsung plasma's and this issue. I went to Best Buy and other store's to try to find out what this buzzing was but I did not hear it in any of the store displays that I watched and listened to. I thought that by now they must be aware of the problem and done something about it but apparently not. I don't get it, doesn't anybody at Samsung have ears to hear this or are they like a alcoholic in denial about their alcoholism. Is this "See no evil", Hear no evil? I took a chance that maybe I would be one of the lucky few that doesn't get a buzzer because I was that impressed with the picture quality of the E7000 over the other makes and models, but alas I am now that owner of one myself.
The picture quality of the E7000 is outstanding but the buzzing ruins everything, where it not for that the E7000 AND E8000 would be as close to perfection as I have ever seen a display get. Now I have to decide on whether I want to go thru the weary cycle of returning E7000 after E7000 trying to get one that doesn't buzz or just give up now and get another brand, probably an LG 60PM9700 as I don't like the picture quality of the Panasonic ST50, GT50 and even the VT50 models. As you know, the buzzing is not the "normal" plasma buzz " that all plasma's make. This is a buzzing at least 3x that and it does not sound normal, I'm sitting at least 8 to 10 feet away from the television and I can hear it distinctly, even above the whine of my dorm room size refrigerator's compressor sitting right next to it. I even have Tinnitus "ringing in the ears" and I can hear this buzz unmistakeably. I'll call Samsung Customer Support Tomorrow and see what they have to say. I'll probably get some clueless non-entity who knows nothing about electronics who will probably give me their pre-programed responses that they read from a card in front of them, that the buzzing I'm hearing is "normal" and that all plasma's make this sound etc. etc. But I'm not going to go for it and will demand answers and action. Maybe I'll tell them of my Sony KDS-60A3000 saga, where Sony deliberately sold defective SXRD RPTV's and had a class action law suit filed against them and had to settle the suit and that cost Sony a lot of money. http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1254481
Please tell what you did with your Samsung E7000/8000 Buzzing problem.
