I don't find the buzzing annoying on mine, only can hear it if its a really bright screen and no sound. Ill swap your buzzing for my dse
im on my 3rd set and the buzzing has been the same with all of them.....turns out that the first set was may have been the better....having come from only LCD's, I was very surprised anyone ever put up with this noise....I assume that those who don't hear it, have the tv in a bigger room, with a average louder volume, or acoustically different layout or something...or those with sets with fans can't hear it......I haven't had a set for longer than a month or so so not sure if the buzz will reduce but I wouldn't think so....
however, I'm lucky in as much as I only use the set for bluray movies with surround sound on a high volume so I only hear the buzz if I get a very quiet, bright scene, which is not very often.....and the plasma picture is so much better for movies than any LCD I have ever had so I can really understand what the fuss is about...the black levels and contrast make a huge difference to a film viewing....
My other tv's are LCD which I use for day to day stuff.....I couldn't use a plasma for everyday viewing, but that is just a combination of having a very quiet home and sensitive hearing....
currently having some motion trouble with 3rd GT50 but this maybe the swap in bluray player....will be messing about a bit with this tomorrow.....
not sure any of this helps you though!
does it help... yes!
is it what I wanted to hear... erm, no! It is however what I expected and suspect that all sets experience this problem, the thing that varies is peoples ability to notice (and tolerate) the sound. I have contacted Panasonic directly and requested an engineer visit to see if there is anything which can be done to at least reduce the noise. I am awaiting an email back at the minute!
Thanks for taking the time to reply and I will let you know if and when I get a reply. I suspect it is simply a fault I will have to live with (simply cant afford the ~£500 more for the GT60)!
i have exactly the same buzz,think its just the way with gt50s,however ido think its not as loud as it was,currently just over 2 weeks of running in and it does produce a stunning picture,ive also calibrated with a thx disc and dont have contrast or brightness as high as the factory settings,so it really takes a very bright white screen to even notice the buzz,in truth i can live with it happily.

do let me know what Panasonic say....would be nice to not have the buzz.....I thought about the GT60 too but am now sure that will buzz just the same....the sets with built in cooler fans must mask the buzz at least a bit, but then I would get annoyed by the fans which says more about me than the tv's!
I will definately keep you updated! Strangely I think I could live with fans as at least that is constant, its where it will suddenly start buzzing that I get reminded of the issue!
Nick - you had yours for quite a while, did you not notice yours settling down at all?
also, I contacted JL just to keep them updated with the situation and the I am not entirely happy with the set just in case I needed more assistance in the future. They have sent my email through to the faults department so will let you know if that turns into anything
