    LMAO.......theyd replace your plasma, or give you back equal money of what you initially paid for it.... Unless 1/2 your family was killed due to a fault with the TV that had nothing to do with the surge, then you could go to court and sue the company that made the TV for bad quality control, dangerous product etc..... THEN youd get millions (youd lose 1/2 ya family in the process, but give a little, take a little eh?)

    Absolutely not. Find the real problem, don't make things worse by bypassing the required ground. Ironic, since noise/hum is often a sign of a faulty ground.

    Sounds like you might be getting crosstalk within the surge suppressor. I'd suggest getting a better surge suppressor, preferably one that isolates the outlets into banks/groups to avoid interference.

    can you ebay/google me some? I have no idea what I'm looking at, I heard there are filters you can get too. But I seriously need something, the hum drives me nuts. (Does it on my bros PC too). I hear it is a bigger issue in Australia than it is in America? Different Hz or some crap....

    Look at any of the Tripp Lite models with "Isobar" in the name. They're distinguished by the fact that they are metal and not plastic. Example models:

    HTPOWERBAR10
    HT10DBS
    ISOBAR6DBS

    Use PriceGrabber to find a vendor.

    I think it is an American thing. I hope it is an American thing. I've never heard of a surge before. Can somebody clarify?

    Dude, it was already answered. Can't you even bother to read the posts after his before you spend the time asking the same (now already-answered) question?

    you shouldn't tell them you suspect a surge because you really can't be sure... it could just cause you problems in getting help.

    just say it quit working the other day, you ship it in and they may determine if it's a surge or maybe something else!
    How old are you? Just curious...

    If you think voltage spikes just come from having lost power, you haven't been doing your homework.

    There are 3 types of power "events":

    1) Surge (voltage spike)
    2) Brownout (voltage dip without total power loss)
    3) Blackout (total loss of power)

    Each can happen on its own, and #1 and #2 can happen frequently without being obvious to the user. All 3 can cause problems with electronics... some permanent. And you might never realize that it was a surge/brownout/etc that caused it.
