Sony XBR4 Fan Noise?

Should I be able to hear the noise from the fan on my 46 inch XBR4. It seems pretty loud, has anyone else had this problem and talked with Sony about it. Just wondering if it is normal. Thanks.

my xbr4 is silent. I dont think there is a fan. What other components are you using?

I have a Sony XBR4 and PS3 and Shaw PVR. Yes the noise is for sure coming from the TV. I heard the 40" and 46" XBR4's have a fan and the 52" does not. Either way there is some sort of problem with mine if it makes a humming that I can hear when the volume is low.

Have you tried a proper setup of the TV - say turning down the backlight some, if there is an OPC circuit (auto light sensor) See:

FAQ - What You Need To Do To Your New HDTV

A lot of times, if the TV is left in it's vivid mode, the TV is stressed to the limits and will emit more noise then when properly calibrated. Try switching to another picture mode like custom, etc.
