Apparently this is a fairly widespread problem in 2005 and 2006 and is caused by a backlight failure; usually bad solder joints on the backlight inverter board. HP originally extended their warranty to 20+ months but it apparently has expired since the HP pages have all been removed. This is likely to be an easy repair and relatively inexpensive job by a qualified service technician and is NOT a job for the typical user due to exposure to high voltage.

Whats wrong with my stereo

How old is your HK receiver? The power supply capacitors can get old and tired, and cause the hum and shutoff. Repair is an option.

Monitiors are not turning on

Have you tried to use these on other devices, like a DVD Player, etc.? If you get a HUMMING noise with other devices then the internal amplifier is defective and you are not getting sound production to the speakers. If you have separate power AMP and the speakers hum when connected, they may have been damaged. If you have a speaker mismatch; they tend to buzz, thus too many conditions could represent the humming. Check that the Positive and Negative polarization of the speaker wires are correct.

Older Harman Kardon computer speakers have loud hum

The hum (50 or 60 Hz) is caused by the AC power getting into the entry point of the amplifier. Either the filtering capacitors from the powersource of the speakers have dried up - replace them - or there is a short in the cables.
There is another possibility: if you have kicked the subwoofer  box its transformer might have slipped from its fixings and now is touching the subwoofer speaker frame.
The only way to find which is to open the cases.

Loud hum when Bose Companion 3 Series II speakers are turned on.

I had the same problem for many months. I asked a sound & video professional and he suggested I move the subwoofer away from any power source. I had the subwoofer next to my UPS. Once separated and moved all wiring away from the power supply (about 12") the low bass hum was practically gone.

Loud humming noise from new hdtv

hello, the speakers are fualty or have a shorted connection if they came with the tv contac your seller and arrange for a replacement imediately dont wait. since they are giving you feedback dont use them they may cuase other fualts in your tv, any component thats cuases hum or noise when pluged into the tv should not be used at all.

one important thing is to have a grounded plug this also may cuase fualts down the line,
if posible get a power line conditioner or ups (uniteruptable power supply)

flat panels are very over protective you dont want the tv to start blinking. since flat panels have built in protection circuts any slight short or fualt may cuase the wide screen to go into circut shutdown mode and this will cost you more if the speakers create a short in your audio circut it may damage your widescreen internal boards and cuase a system shutdown circut (red light flashing no picture)

contac your sellers site let them know your speaker are cuasing a loud hum
and that you will need the speakers replaced these are definitely fualty
if you dont have any coverage or you got the set as is then dont take any chances use other speakers.
if you are electronically inclined you can open these up and find out whats wrong with them internaly it may be a loose connection, since opening up the equipment may void your warantee contac the store first see what they say..
good luck happy holidays

Hum in speakers

Unplug the minijack from computer to hear if it still hums. If not test speakers at another computer. if it works fine on other computer the sounncard is generating hum noise. Common problem is usually the earthing cable inside the minjack that is touching L or R speakerwire due to bending of cable and breaking off insulation. If youre up to it cut off minijack if its moulde and resolder a new one on.

Gemsound power speaker pxa105

Disconnect any input cables from the amp. Turn down the volume controls and disconnect the speakers. Power back on. If you still blow fuses with nothing hooked up, have the amp fixed.
If the fuse holds, shut down and connect the speakers, leaving the volume controls down. Power up and see if your fuse holds. If you have hum, an output transistor is most likely shorted. If you have no noise, SLOWLY turn up the volume controls and listen for the hum. If all is quiet, turn down the volume controls and connect your input cables and turn the volume back up. Noise? check your cables!
