Electrical experts, I need your thought.

First of all, I hope I placed this in the correct forum. If not, moderators, please move it to the correct area, thanks.

This is my first plasma and need some advice.

Have you every come across static on a radio created by a plasma?

Every once in a while my wife likes to go into the bedroom and listen to her radio. When I owned an LED no problem, no static. After installing a plasma, the TV causes static on her radio. TV turned off, static gone. TV turned on, static.

A little information: I have the set plugged into an APC 15 which protects against electrical noise and power spikes.

If you have heard of this problem, is there some type of plug-in for the radio that stops or filters static?

This is expected. A plasma display uses a lot more power and produces more EMI than an LCD display. The only solution is to move the display or radio away from each other.

APC 15 doesn't reduce any noise the display glass produces itself due to the sustaining process (150~200kHz at 50A+ pulses.) In theory, if it works as advertised, it will only filter out a little of the EMI that the display power supply kicks back into the mains -- however, this is going to be very little due to the display power supply having adequate filtering already.

Try reducing the contrast/picture setting that might reduce RF interference on AM radios.
