Just had my buzzing 58B560 replaced with a 58B650, which was very nice of Samsung. New unit buzzes too, but I was going to try and deal with it. Now when using HDMI port two everything on the screen has for lack of a better description a staticy outline, kind of a snow around everything. No problem on HDMI one or three. Just took pictures and it's flickering back and forth as you can see in the pictures.


I don't think I want to deal with having a repair tech come out over and over again to diagnose the problem then again to fix it. I think they were out four times for the buzz on first one.

If only one port is affected then simple Main board change will fix it.

I'd send these pictures to Samsung. Clearly something is wrong, assuming you have verified that the cable is ok.


I can see you wanting to put an end to dealing with broken products. Might be time to ask for a refund and try another brand - maybe one that does some qc before the product goes to the customer.


Even if they swap out the guts of the set, you'll still likely have a buzzer.

The choice is up to you, but if I were sick and tired of dealing with problems with the TV and 2 of the 3 HDMI ports worked fine, I might just live with it. On all of my TVs, I only use 1 of the HDMI ports. I do the switching in my audio receiver.

IMO, return it and get a Panasonic. 4 service calls, 2 buzzing displays, and a broken HDMI port is more than you should have to deal with.
