RE: Week old 50GT50 Buzzing..!

I was also hoping I would get to enjoy it over th e little break I had, but no chance! For my disappointment I will defo b pushing for something..! Maybe anther TV for free.. Ha. What excuse did they give you..? They had poor one for me, something about it not being loaded on to the truck.. Right! I've read many times and been told by Gel it's worth all the hassle.. I hope so...

I was given a similar excuse. It's silly. I was actually thinking yesterday night.. 2013 is upon is in a few days.. Is it worth waiting for the new models.. ?

RE: Week old 50GT50 Buzzing..!

When I first ordered mine on the Wednesday, they couldn't arrange delivery because of some sort of system crash.

Could this system crash have affected your order, and maybe there were orders that have gone missing?

I'll post an update on Monday once I hear from JL....

The 2013 sets won't be too far off but also won't be £999....

Though 2013 models will be showcased at CES in January, it'll be a fair few months before they're available commercially. In other words, you'll still have to wait a while if you want a newer model Panasonic plasma.

Personally I think JL took too many orders in the days after Christmas and now can't meet deliveries due to stock shortages and/or overloaded delivery rounds. The GT50 + BDP offer sold out in a matter of hours. If discussion on this forum is anything to go by, a lot of people pounced as soon as the price dropped.

They ended up giving £50 in cash.. Not bad! To top it off, they delivered the TV just now to my surprise!! They did say Friday, but I'm not complaining! Lol.  Here's hoping for a gawd set..

RE: Week old 50GT50 Buzzing..!

Just set the baby up. Slight buzzing noise, not bad as last time around. Have to lsten out for it, so i can live with that. Blacks seem to b a lot better also..More detail..  After seeing the black on the new set, I realised the blacks were blocky and lost detail.. On the old set.. If that makes sense..? Back to run in mode.. Tick, tock, lol.

RE: Week old 50GT50 Buzzing..!

Nice one guys!  Keep us updated how you get on.  With the buzzing it does buzz naturally more on white colours but then should go quiet again when the white colour goes.  That is when you know you have got a good one.  All plasmas do buzz a little but it should not be distracting.  And when you first power on it goes to the av screen and the hdmi inputs, you should not hear buzzing then either.  The second one I had buzzed really loud as soon as I powered on and it was not even on a channel!  That was distracting.
