Anyway to get rid of that pitch?
I've had over 10 of these QC nightmares and every one did this too.
There's nothing you can do besides manually turning the monitor off before turning off your PC, or you can do it after but that's more steps.
The LED setting in the OSD brilliantly doesn't apply to the monitor while it's in sleep mode, so even if there wasn't coil whine you have to deal with a blinking blue light that can't be stopped.
The minimum time for the off timer is 1 hour that you would have to deal with coil whine, if we could make it 1 minute after being in sleep mode that would have solved this problem.
Enabling strobing enables coil whine most people notice as well.
Samsung's engineers still have their mothers dress them every morning
If someone knows of a more convenient way of stopping the monitor from entering sleep mode/blinking light and noise mode I'd like to know too.
Even if you could make the LED always on also in sleep mode I'd just cover it with some tape and the noise would be gone, but it has to default to sleep mode and default to blinking coil whine...
