This may indicate a ground loop problem. Try to have the power supply for the speakers and the music source plugged into the same outlet. Try another connecting cable if possible.

It's also possible the power supply for the speakers isn't working correctly. There are filter capacitors inside whose job is to smooth out the voltage that would make such hum. They may have bad connections to the circuit board inside (a common problem) or may have gone bad. You can check for and possibly repair these problems yourself if you've done any electronic soldering, or see if a TV shop in your area would give an estimate.

Sounds like a problem in the speakers' internal power supply, maybe a faulty capacitor. Speakers need to be looked at by a technician, or replaced with a new set.

If there is a router or you leave your phone near the speakers that is what is most likely causing the problem. Check to see if anything that gives off a wireless signal (eg. microwaves, cell phones, cordless phones) are nearby, and try to see if moving one of those things fixes your problem.

Hi, what causes hums from speaker is when there is no ground shield from either the power supply or from the cable you plugged into the socket from the power supply.

So you will need to check that out and replace untrusted cables for connection..

If after doing this troubleshooting exercise, you will now need to test the speaker with another set to be sure the humming sound is not coming from there.

I guess that will Do.

Have a nice day...

The noise is a hum or buzz. We've narrowed it


Hello,

By chance have you tried making sure the laptop is not too close to the speakers? Sometime you will get feedback when the source is to close to high powered speakers. Also, check your jack cord and make sure no splits/cuts are visiable and the plugs are fully inserted.

Good Luck and keep making great music. Aloha.

LOUD BUZZING/HUMMING SOUND- CAN HEAR OVER AUDIO


have someone check speaker ground to the TV chassis. Your speakers are picking up reverb from the Video Signal.

Buzz....hum problem from turntable....


Did you ground the turntable? Most of them have a ground wire located somewhere that connects to a screw on your electrical outlet. You could be getting hum from your pre-amp if it is a low quality one. Try unhooking the pre-amp, if that is the problem you won't hear the hum. If the turntable ground is the problem you won't hear music with no pre-amp but you will still hear the hum.
