Question about Sony STR-DE885 Receiver

Open Question

Constant, loud humming noise from all speakers

I just noticed that my Sony speakers/amp (for TV/dvd etc) have a constant, low pitched sound through them.....i have tried unplugging everything bar the FM tuner and the speakers and i still get the sound/distortion. Pretty sure it isnt all the speakers as i have tried the two rear ones which i hardly ever use.....seems to be something from the amp?? I have tried a factory reset on that but no luck.... Can anyone suggest what could be causing it and how i can fix it! Thanks

SOURCE: Sony Bravia XBR-2 32-inch LCD with popping noise problem

Has anyone heard of something like this where the cable box/service is causing popping sounds? yes & it is common problem. And is this something I should be concerned about causing damage to the TV's speakers? not at all. The Sony tech-support representative (over the phone) diagnosed it further to a problem not with the TV but with the cable box/service because there were no popping sounds when I played a DVD on my Playstation 2 that is attached to the TV. they are right that your problem is not due to tv. it is due to cable box/service? yes but not defective it reqires to change the way you have connected tv to cable.please call tech to get it connected in such a way so that you do not get popping sound when you you put off cable box.

SOURCE: Sony CMT CP1 Right hand speaker output very noisy, humming, crackling

It sounds to me like you both are having a problem with a capacitor going bad. some capacitors act as a noise filter and it sounds like you both have a bad one. If you are any good with a volt-ohm meter that reads capacitors you should check them to make sure they are at their proper values which will be posted on the capacitor. then replace it. if you dont know how to use a v-o meter then take it to a shop and have them replace it

SOURCE: No sound from rear speakers during test tone usng Sony STR-DE475

I had this problem last night.

To solve it, you can reset the amp by:

1) Put the receiver on stand-by
2) Hold down "MODE" button and press on button
3) "S.F. CLR" appears in the display and surround is back on.


Good luck

Klh powered subwoofer model ASW10-120B... when you plug in to power... it makes a loud buzzing/humming noise


I would check the caps on the power supply. They are rather large electrolytic capacitors that will look like they burst and/or leaking. When these die, the caps ground and the sub will make a loud buzzing sound. If you are handy with a soldering iron you can replace them yourself. Replace them with the same voltage or a little bigger and same with the size.

If the cap. says 16v 4700pF on it, for example, a 20v 5300pF or a 16v 6200mF cap. will work for this application.

Constant buzzing noise when using dvd player, playstation etc.


If this "buzzing" sounds like a low frequency hum, then it is probably a loose or bad cable from the equipment. I am assuming you have this connected to an AV receiver or the tv. If the cables are not securely connected or is a damaged cable it causes the ground to be suceptible to "noise". That is what I would check first. Let me know if that fixes the problem, or what you did right before you noticed this issue.

They are makeing a constant sharp noise a loud high pitched hum if you will


Right-click on the speaker icon in the lower right of your screen and choose Open Volume Control and check all volume levels (make sure they are not set to high). If this doesnt work then when you right-click, choose Adjust Audio Properties and search around for volume controls (maybe try the Speaker Volume button).

Noise comming from centre speaker of panasonic scpt560 home theatre system


check the cable 1st. If this speaker is powered, you could have a bad shield, or the power is causing a ground loop.
If the speaker is coming from an amp using speaker wire ie: 2 lead + - check the connection and make sure no fraid strands are touching each other on the rear connection.
In addition check your TV, Ap, And speaker system (if sub is powered independently) are all on the same curcuit.
a certain cause for ground looping resulting in hum.
