What size is it? So far only 58's and 63's have had signifigant issues. I am thinking of opening a service ticket with Samsung to see what they can do.

PN50B550 and it is significant from any distance at any location. If you put your ear to the back of it, near the air holes at the top of the metal case, it seems to be coming from the internal electronics.

I would be happy to hear if someone opens a service ticket.

Pace off exactly 12 feet in front of the TV, and position your noggin so it is square in the middle of the TV, so you would be able to see your reflection exactly in the middle. Turn the volume all the way off, with the TV on a normal channel, and tell me if you can hear any buzzing. Then move to the side a few feet, and try again. I can't imagine my hearing is all that great, and that my TV is any different than the others. Also let me know if you have a 50" or 58", as that seems to effect it.

Why the hell would anybody do this????.. Why should anybody try to locate a buzz that they initially dont hear? And maybe suddenly start to pick up on it.. That is when you start iritating you about it...


I will tell you all that buzzing from plasma tv is just normal. It can be several reason for the buzz.. If the buzz is as load that you can hear it from a viewing distance using normal level volume.. Then, call samsung - you have a problem!!!! If not, dont bother iritating you about it. If the buzz comes from the back of the set, try titen some screews or something

I have been in touch with Samsung about the buzz and have had a 3rd party repair place out to listen to it. They have ordered a new panel from Samsung and are doing the replacement next Wednesday. I will update after the replacement.

My 58PB650 buzzes. I didn't notice it at first, but noticed it after hooking up my surround sound. And now I can't help but listen for it.

Hmm, that sounds like classic grounding issues in your connections. If the buzz was panel specific, you would have heard it without a surround hook up.

That's great to hear - definitely keep us updated. As I had mentioned before, I had a tech that came out and told me mine was normal, but he didn't really sit in the middle position to hear it.

exchanged the second Samsung for a Panasonic G10 and WOW what a difference

the Panasonic is quiet and the whites are actually white,THX mode is incredible for blu rays

good luck to you guys and thanks for the info while I was a Sammy owner

What size did you get? I'm starting to look at other options myself, but really like the big screen size, and PQ for that matter on my Sammy.

I just ordered a 54 g10, hopefully it's as good as my other panasonic I've had for years. I'm really sad this tv didn't work out, I really liked it (minus the buzzing). Good luck all.

My 58B650 has a loud irratating buzz. It is the set. I unplugged everything except the set, and muted the tv's speakers. The buzz is coming from both upper left and right rear of the set. It is loudest sitting in front of the set, but isn't that where you are supposed to sit? I tried 2 different power strips, on 2 different circuits (on different breakers) and checked the grounding with a circuit tester. I'll be calling Samsung on Monday. If they can't/won't fix it I am sending it back. In this day and age no tv should have an electrical induced buzz. And I will not put foam or curtains behind the set.

It is not loose screws. It is electrical buzzing coming off the circuit boards.

PN59B550. No buzz. Had wife, kids, and a friend listen. No buzz. Whites are WHITE. PQ is incredible. I'm not trying to be a smart ass here, honestly. I love this TV. I have a neighbor that has the PN58B650 and there is no buzz on his either. Can't see any difference in PQ by the way. I don't know maybe we are the two exceptions to the rule.

PN58B650 here, I initially voted for no buzz, since I didn't have any during the burn in process using images on a Flash/thumb drive. Once that was over and I hooked up the dish to watch regular content, I heard the buzz. It is fairly loud and can be heard when going to breaks, like when sound fades for commercials etc... but not heard at regular volume over the broadcast content. It is the same now, if I play the burn in images from the USB, nothing, as soon as I switch to the HDMI and sat tv it's there. What concerns me more, is there is some "banding" going on when I watch content with a lot of graphics, such as sports. I assume the term is "banding", it's like even if the graphic stops there is a ghost of a line that continues on thru out the width of the screen. I'll have to go back thru some threads to see if this is the correct term or if others have had this as well. I hope I don't have to return it, I really like the color, seems very accurate and the blacks seem fine to this plasma novice. I do also love the overall design/look of the Sammy but of course the content is what matters.

line bleeding maybe? if so i have seen it to. from what i have gathered it's just a plasma thing in general. nothing is perfect.

I wonder if isolating the circuit boards from their mounts on the back of the panel with some rubber washers would reduce the buzzing? Anyone daring enough to try?
