The Plasma or LCD panel is a high technology product
with resolution of two million to six million pixels. In a
very few cases, you could see fine dots on the screen
while you’re viewing the TV. Those dots are deactivated
pixels and do not affect the performance and reliability
of the TV.
Cracking noise: A cracking noise that occurs when
watching or turning off the TV is generated by plastic
thermal contraction due to temperature and humidity.
This noise is common for products where thermal
deformation is required.
Electrical circuit humming/panel buzzing: A low level
noise is generated from a high-speed switching circuit,
which supplies a large amount of current to operate a
product. It varies depending upon the product.
This generated sound does not affect the performance

become a permanent disfigurement on the
screen. This is image burn or burn-in and not
covered by the warranty.

long period of time, image burn may occur on the
letterboxed area of the screen.
