How common is LCD buzzing (esp Samsung LNT 4061)?
I just bought a Samsung LNT 4061F and many have complained on other forums about the buzzing/humming coming from the power inverter for the flourescent backlight. Other brands have had some complaints as well (like Sony, and especially plasmas), but this Samsung especially seems to be bad.
If I set the backlight to max, the humming goes away, anything less than that and that humming returns, driving me nuts. I can hear it if the volume is low or if I mute the set, and the tone of the hum changes according to how bright the scene is.
I have asked for an exchange at Best Buy where I bought it and the new TV will be delivered in a few days. Is it a futile excercise?
I wanted to see just how common this problem is, whether it be on this Samsung model, or other brands too. Am I just being too picky or is this `normal' for all LCDs because of the technology?
