Not sure yet, but before considering a fault with the amp, does it only make this humming noise when not plugged into the guitar? I am thinking that the cable might be faulty.

If it while the cable is plugged in the guitar, does the humming disappear when you turn the volume control(s) down on the guitar? I am thinking that one or pickups may be faulty.

Humming , these depends on what kind? or how loud is the humming.

Maybe the capacitor in the power supply burned upon unplugging the heater. The power supply is a coil with iron core, next to it, there should be a rectifier and a capacitor. If the capacitor is burnt, the powersupply will still be working, but there will be noise on the line, the 50 Hz that comes out of your wall outlet. Capacitor of the same value can be bought for small change but has to be soldered in.

Speakers are making a humming noise


If the noise is accross all channels then it's most likely the large electroltic capacitors in the power supply. These filter out the mains hum 50/60hz. There might be two or more they will be the biggest! Even if you can determine only one has gone, it's best to replace them all.

Could be a faulty grounding. Do all the components do this? Usually turntables will have a buzzing noise if you don't hook it up to the ground bolt but I'm going to take a guess that maybe the amplifier isn't being grounded itself.

Alot of loud feedback through speakers, a loud buzzing noise


What sources make it happen or which do not? All buzzing = something in the amplifier end. is it from all speakers or just one?
One external source= RCA cables not grounded. Reconnect them tightly with a twisting motion to wipe off oxidation.

I have recently acquired a old Denon AVR3801 Home cinema Receiver. I have plugged it all up and switched it on, but although the system seems to work quite nicely, the amp itself makes a buzzing/humming...


The solution of leaving the thing on all the time would certainly work, but most of the time a buzzing sound inside a relatively robust audio amplifier is being caused by the huge transformer coil in the thing. Or wires that are in close proximity thereto.

In some ways, you're blessed that the buzzing is coming from the unit itself, and not through the loudspeakers.

Buzzing/vibration noise from ONYKO TX-SR506 unit


If the unit is under warranty, DO NOT open it up. Bring it in for an exchange or warranty service. Explain that the unit makes noise during use and it will be serviced. This could be as simple as a bad connection in the power supply area and you are hearing oscillations or it could be a defective power transformer. Either case will be covered under warranty so there should be no charge to you.

Keep us posted.

A HUMMING Peavey Classic 30


I repaired a classic 50 recently and the problem was a bad solder connection on the main input jack. You may also want to have the tubes tested.

If the unit is over 20+ years have it recapped.

I do this stuff but Vermont might be to far.
