Yesterday I was looking at a collection of railroad maps that I have and was trying to decide whether I should sell them or frame them. They're circa 1905 and not all are in the best condition.
For the buzz, try putting a little pressure with your hand on the back panel, where you think the buzz might be coming from, to see if that has any effect. If it does, maybe tightening the screws will help. The best way might be to loosen the screws that hold the panel in place while the tv is off (cold), turn the tv on and let it warm up, and then tighten the screws back down while its still warm.
Thank you very much! I'm really pleased how the room worked out. The desk was basically immovable so working around it was a chore, but it turned out nicely. I really love that map picture too, it used to be right where the TV was and the couch used to be underneath it with a coffee table. Was a nice sitting area, if I was tired of sitting at the desk I could move over to the couch, work and see my old TV on the wall across the room (behind those pictures). Now with the TV and the fantastic off-center viewing of plasma, I have everything right there.
I can still hear buzzing on a mostly bright screen, but it isn't too bad, seems like less than before. One thing I've started to wonder is if the electrical feed could be a culprit. I live in a building downtown that was built in 1929, retrofitted for condos about 30 years ago. The wiring and electrical work is not great, I've redone my kitchen and master bath myself including electrical work and it has been a major pain. Static electricity is also huge problem in the entire place. I am tempted to get one of those Monster/APS/Panamax power strip/conditioners to see what happens. If it doesn't help with buzzing, oh well, I need a power strip/surge protector anyway.

Upgraded from a 7 year 50" Samsung plasma which was not as much fun to mount or remove by myself from a wall.. For me, nothing beats a PDP picture.
Have some questions:
- I noticed there are some gamers here. What settings are you guys using for Xbox/PS3? From what I've read, they both display different pictures, but is the Game setting a good setting to use, or should I use one of the other setting and change values there? I mostly use the PS3 for Blu Rays and Xbox for gaming.
- IR/Burn In - played alot of Xbox on it and have had no noticeable IR and no BI. I know every panel is different and results may vary, but I think the IR/BI issue is blown out or porportion
- I used the D-Nice Slides for the recommended hours, along with varied content, and confg'd the TV to his recommended settings. Once thing I noticed is that his settings and many others say to set color to Warm 2, but I find it makes whites a little red. I don't care for it, but is that what it's supposed to look like? I'm guessing it might be personal preference, but have I been looking at a TV picture wrong all these years?
- No buzzing!
- The Netflix app isn't the best. Noticed alot of jittery movement in films (watched Paranormal Activity and Captain Amerca for example), but animated films look incredible (some of the WB DC Animated Unverse movies). Has anyone else noticed this?
Thanks in advance for your responses.
From a gaming perspective, I've yet to use any setting except my custom settings for TV and bluray. I haven't noticed much input lag yet and that includes online gaming. I tried game mode a few times, it wasn't bad but until I start noticing input lag, I'm keeping it on the best looking settings. I've yet to have any significant IR that was visible during regular viewing or that was even visible on slides after a couple minutes.
Agree about the Netflix app, I have used it some just to test and it is just horrible quality. Meanwhile the Netflix app on PS3 or 360 works great.
