Not set up yet but before I do, any pointers re buzzing and running in would be good....
gel mentions there should be no buzz if no picture, and I do worry a bit as have always had LCD and have sensitive hearing and pick up annoying noises (wife excluded) easily......so I'll see how buzzy this one is.....surely if its ok it shouldn't buzz at all?
Does running in mean you leave it on continuously or that it won't be at its best for a bit?
Let us know how you get on and good luck! Don't worry about the buzzing hopefully you will be fine. I would not leave it on continously, it just means not changing the picture settings until run in.

Okay, TV has been on for last 5 hours. I've just seen the two blurry noisey lines again on SD channels.. As usual all other content is fine. Now I'm more confused then before. Is this a TV issue, or reception.. 16.9 overscan is off, when its on it hides the edges and then cant be seen.. Is this considered a fault..
Is it on freeview you are getting this? Or is it Sky?
On freesat! I have no other source connected yet!
And on freesat it is there on every channel? On Blu-ray is it perfect? No trace?
On freesat SD channels it only occurs. Freesat HD channels are fine. BR is fine, DVD also fine.
I don't get it! I don't have freesat either to have a look. I am just on Sky and is perfect on all channels. Perhaps someone else can have a look?
Agreed its weird! When I first mentioned it nobody really new what the problemo was..! I'm not sure what to do.. Re-return it.. Keep it! I can't determine weather it's going to get worse.. That's the real problem!
How big are the lines and where on the screen are they?
Which Freesat SD channels?
There prob half an inch either side of the panel. All SD channels! They are well pounced on the BBC channels as they have a lot off varied programmes! Hope someone can help or advise.. This is really frustrating, I just wish to enjoy my TV. Makes me think if I should have stuck with LCD!!
Well I've just tried a few SD channels on Freesat and have got nothing like that.
That's good to hear.. It tells me it is an issue. This is my second set, same prob. Laser is your 16.9 overscan on or off? Mines off and they show up, on they don't. I guess I'll have to return the set again..! This is killing me!!!!!!!
That’s what Overscan is for – to eliminate noise from the edge of the screen which you may experience with SD broadcasts. If it cures the problem, use it.

The only reason I don't use it, is because it enlarges the screen slightly..! Saying that, nobody can determine if its a prob or not.. And at that price i do want a set that is clear of this.
