need advice - panasonic p50s2 plasma hissing

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ok, I just had the panasonic p50u2 picked up today because it was making a fairly audible hissing noise. I received the upgrade version of the TV (p50s2) and its still making the same noise. I've been told that plasmas aren't supposed to make any such noise but I have no way to compare as the only plasmas I have owned have made the noise.
Anyone else experience this issue with these models / panasonics in general? Should I return for another TV (again) or go ahead and keep this one? The hissing seems to increase intensity the brighter the screen gets and this was the exact same issue I had with the other one. It's not loud by any stretch but it is slightly audible and when you get close to the TV you can definitely hear it.

thanks!

Could possibly be the capacitors, just a tip, if your buying TV's go for LCD's.
the only thing I can recommend is to return that one too, if you have the same issue still, ask for a refund, and buy a LCD

Ya, LCD have great black levels compared to plasma's and much more real colors.

Sarcasm turned off

Plasma hizz/noise is fairly common. It should be very low and not audible when watching tv on low/normal volume. Anything beyond that = repair/replace/refund.
