Buzz sound when i hook my laptop up

I hook my laptop up to the receiver using a "y" cord from the headphone port on my laptop, and it makes a kinda "buzzing" noise in the speakers. If i try to play music it plays faintly but the buzz is too loud. I dont think its the laptop because i put it on another receiver and it worked fine, i tried hooking it to different inputs(cd,phono,video2..) but same issue. It did work for a few years until last week so im assuming something is wrong with the receiver. let me know if there is anything i can try before takin git in. thanks

You gots ta isolate the problem.  Disconnect the speakers and hook them up to a stereo you know that works.  If you don't hear sound coming out of the speakers, then you know the speakers are fu.k.d up, so you need to look on the speakers to see if there is a fuse that is blown that needs to be replaced.  If you got sound coming through, then disconnect them and hook them back to the original stereo making sure you got a good connection and all the wires are in good and tight.  Then turn your stereo on and go through the various channels like Tuner, Tape Deck, Aux, and DVD to see if you get any sound.  Also turn the volume knob up. If you don't get any sound after all this, you know there is something wrong with the stereo your using.

SOURCE: When I play CD only the right speaker is play but

first- is the tuner set to mono or stereo? if stereo, stop using the analog rca jacks and use an optical (toslink) cable to transfer your audio to your receiver. almost all cd players have this output and the same with the receiver. better still, if you are using a late model cd or bluray, and your receiver has hdmi inputs use those as they will transfer both audio and video with one cable.

SOURCE: Loud buzzing sound in the

The buzzing is caused by the power source of the receiver : the filtering capacitors from the power lines to the amplifier circuits have aged and have started to dry, lose their capacity so the current is no longer filtered correctly so the ripple from the AC mains is stronger and it's passed on to the amplifiers where it became audible.
Keeping the capacitors under constant tension will help them regenerate somewhat, but you will have in the end to replace them. A simple job, just be careful at the ratings of the capacitors when you get their replacements.

Aux cord from tablet to receiver...cord is plugged in to phones

What cable are you using? you would need to connect the headphone output of the tablet to one set of the RCA inputs on the back of the receiver. you have to be very careful about the volume settings on the tablet when doing this - if the volume level is too high it could cause distorted audio coming from the receiver and possibly cause damage to the amp.

My denon receiver keeps switching from H/P input on to H/P input off automatically which turns the sound on and off?

You need to replace the headphone jack. It has bad contacts that make the unit think there are headphones plugged into it. If you do not plan on using headphones, you can take the cover off and unplug the cable that goes to the headphone jack pcb and this should clear up the problem (please disconnect the power cord before trying this).

Can I connect my I phone to play music?

If your phone has a stereo headphone jack, you could use a headphone-to-RCA plug adapter cord to plug your phone into the auxilliary input port on your stereo receiver. I'm not sure what kind of sound quality you'd get - it depends on the impedances of the jack and the port, among other things - but it should provide at least a basic service. Of course, there are also stereo devices specifically built to boost phone output as well.

I have an Emerson 42in flat screen lcd. It has 3 hdmi ports, a pc port, etc. What I need is an audio out port and the only audio out port is the Digital audio out. My ps3 and xbox 360 are hooked up through...

If you have a home theatre system, most receivers have a digital audio input that you can use and hook that up to the digital audtio output on your TV. I have the same TV, and this is how I am doing it.

The other option is to get a new receiver that supports HDMI, and feed you HDMI into the receiver and then use the HDMI out from the receiver to the TV.

These are about the only options you have.

Hooking laptop to onkyo sr604 through hdmi no sound through stero

hdmi is video only

you will need to use the rca/phono inputs for audio.

you will need a stereo mini jack to steroe rca/phono

use the i/p marked aux/cd/

make sure the volume on the onkyo is turned DOWN before connecting any new input source.

The output from most laptops is designed for headphones so you may need to adjust the volume on the laptop DOWN as well.

Perhaps start off with laptop at 30% and the amp DOWN then increase the amp until you can hear the laptop sound.

To get good quality audio from a laptop you would be beter off with a USB sound card.

hope this helps, thanks for using FixYa

if this is helping please vote.

Playing itunes through receiver

On the back of your tower you should have auxillary outputs that will go into your receiver. Get a connection going between the two ports and you should have perfect sound. The sound that comes out of your headphone output will not really have the amount of power that your receiver needs. Hope this helps.
