I am fairly certain that your problem lies in the electrolytic capacitors. This is the most common problem in vintage radios, and causes them to make a humming noise that isn't affected by the volume control.

Why does my HTS-20 powered subwoofer make a low hum when plugged in, even turned off and not connected to the receiver and a louder hum when the subwoofer power is turned on?


I suspect the amplifier is damaged. This is not an easy repair to do unless you are well versed in audio electronics. I would recommend a repair shop to look at the subwoofer amplifier.

Wrap a wire around the outside Metal of your rca jack in back of your radio and ground the other end of that wire to the back of your radio and the noise goes away

I have a vintage RCA Victor turntable from the 50's or 60's. I need to replace the needle housing, but cannot find a model or serial number to look for parts.


Turnatables then used ceramic or crystal cartridges. All you need to do is look for one of them plus something that will fit in the space in the arm. You will probably not find the original cartridge.

Making loud humming noise only.but if you plug


If I understand this correctly: with NO input or cable attached it hums; with an RCA cable attached it works. (What does 'some' mean in this regard?)

You say that connecting the RCA cable improves its sound. That tells me you're supplying a ground through the RCA cable for stray voltage in the sub.

It seems there may be a basic power issue if it hums with no input. Sometimes a given power source in a home may be wired differently than others or may insufficient grounding, which can result in hum. Try reversing the sub's power plug or move it somewhere else.

Since the sub contains its own electronics it is also susceptible to strong external magnetic fields. Keep it and any signal cables leading to it some distance away from other electrical devices like TV's.

37" Philips LCD no sound.


Maybe the antenna that you are using is not picking up sound from the channels. It could also be the cable. If it makes a humming noise, it means that the speakers are getting electric current and that they SHOULD be okay. It also could be your tuner. Maybe check it all out at some tech place like best buy. Those guys can help

Humming noise


Usually Humming noises come from frequency interferance.  In this case it is being caused by your input sources.  A smiply solution is to replace the cables and or seperate the source cables away from any electircal cords or sources.

Yea try plugging it into another wall socket, if it's still humming could be a damaged transformer. or bad capacitor.
