Flat screen tv causes gfi to trip
Hi, we bought a new flat screen tv a few years ago. I installed a new circuit for it and used a gfi outlet. It is a dry location and maybe overkill but i had an extra gfi anyway.
Every now and then we are watching tv and you will hear a snap sound and the gfi will trip. Reset the gfi and everything is fine for a while. I actually put up with this for a long time and then we dicided to replace the tv with a larger one. To my surprise the gfi tripped with the new tv. I have never heard that a gfi for a tv would cause nuisance tripping of the gfi. Has anyone else heard of this, or do you think the gfi is bad?
