Default Speaker Noise

I have a Panasonic 27" HDTV. I use a stereo system for my audio but have noticed some minimal electrical speaker noise coming from both of the unused TV speakers.

When I switch the TV to fixed audio mode, I get a high pitched constant ring that drives me nuts. Turning that option off and just keeping the volume down leaves me with the slight buzz from the speakers. Recently, I've noticed the buzzing changes with colors on the screen. Weird.

Any suggestions or help? It'd be great if there was simply a way to completely disconnect the speakers (not even give them power) because it seems the option of fixed mode leaves the speakers on, but just doesn't send a signal to them.

All replies are appreciated.

Sounds like (pardon the pun) your TV is broke. Is there a menu setting to select external speakers? If so, you might try that.

I really don't think the TV is "broke". Everything about it works fine and the noise coming from the speakers is very minimal. I feel like if the TV were actually broke, there would something legitimately wrong with it.

I think I'm just being very picky.

Thanks for the reply though.

When I used the term "broke" I probably should have used "defective" or someting else I guess. In any case buzzing can be caused by an internal problem with the power supply section of your TV. There should be no sound comming from the speakers with the volume turned all of the way down. Some circuit in the TV is allowing the buzz to be coupled to the audio circuits after the volume control stages. The fact that the buzz changes due to changes in video, is supportive of a power supply problem somewhere. If the TV is not in warrantee then you can hope for the best as it may never give you any further problems, but if it is covered, I'd get it looked at by a service center.
