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.

My speakers hum even when volume is set at lowest setting and static noise after it has been turned off, how do I fix it?


This isn't really a solution, but it does work. Mine does the same thing, and I found on another forum, some one suggested that once the power is off and it starts to hum. Smack the back left top (as your are facing it) and it will stop the buzzing. I was hesitant at first, but after many fruitless searches, I gave it a try. It does work, but you have to hit it fairly hard and it may take a couple tries to get it to stop. I still can't believe no one has found a solution to this, it seems to be a common problem. If someone is a tech person, please way in on this, I am willing to take this thing apart, I just don't know what to look for. It appears that they use relays to delay the time for powering on and off the amp, once the 2-3 second delay is over after powering off, the speakers buzz loudly with a static noise.

Today i woke up with my clock beside me and it was making a strange clicking noise. it sounded like a Geiger counter and it keeps doing it once and a while. i really don't think the techs at RCA could fit...


There are two speakers. Disconnect the one at the bottom that looks like a coin with glue on it. As far as I know it does nothing because the alarm and the radio go through the other speaker. Crackling noise solved.

My radio hums on the AM dial, unless I turn it one way , otherwise 90 degrees away the hum goes away.


The AM, line filter 60Hertz circuit is defective or the power supply. Something must have come loose. Try an external antenna.

Has a fairly loud (annoying!) hum. Changed


there is a short in the speaker wires somewhere inside, which is not as bad as it sounds since a qualified or experienced person can just take off the case and make sure there's no wires touching and get them out of each others way.

The other cause can be electrical cross interference in your homes wiring. I like to think it's the first thing... Hope it works out, awesome radio- have a nice day!

Hummmmmmmmmmm


Are you listening to AM or FM? If you are listening to AM, trying rotating the radio. You may be picking up some type of local AM interference. If it's happening on FM....then I guess there is always a possibility that you may have a defective power supply and what you are hearing is the hum from that.

Bose Wave radio humming noise


Actually the problem was caused by a bad 470uf cap, that was used to filter the powersupply for all the analog amps. Replaced the cap the unit works like new.

Small black device within RCA RP5420


That black disc is the "backup" alarm if you lose power.... The battery then takes over and "buzzs" throught that little speaker too wake you... even tho there is no power... Mine buzzes too... cut that little speaker outta there.!
