    I emailed LG about this, too. It is repairable under repair. The service rep said that this is a known problem with "some units", meaning that not all units of this model number have this problem. I am buying the same TV next week.

No picture

It's obvious that the power supply failed. The most common parts in a power supply are a thermistor or a voltage rectifier, possibly even a voltage regulator. diodes or resistors can act as fuses too. A ringing sound can come from a fixed coil that isn't kept still with enough epoxy. Hope this helps.

Tv making loud buzzing noise

A common cause are failure of decopling capacitors in the audio section, and or the circuit board power distribution that feeds the audio board. Most of the capacitors are surface mount components. The standard fix is to start by changing the circuit boards that have the defective parts.

If the set is under warranty, call for warranty service. Out of warranty service is expensive for these TV sets.

Buzz sound when tv is on constant

Hello; If you have a plasma TV, is fairly common to hear buzz noises. They can be always there or intermittent. They can get louder as the screen gets brightest. If the buzz is noticeable when you are at normal volume setting, the buzz is excessive and a PCB probably needs replacing. These buzz noises are almost never a sign of failure or safety. LCD TV's can also buzz, but the same applies. John

A buzzing noise coming from inside the tv but still buzzes when on mute but doesnt buzz when tv guide is up on the screen or when a channel is showing what time it starts

plasma tvs buzz a lot, depending on screen brightness. its probably normal but if you can hear loudly over your volume, may be a bad board or plasma panel. from behind tv, left side = y board, right side = z board, middle = power board ---- bad panel can buzz from anywhere... if you hear all parts buzzing, its probably normal plasma noise
