    My problem is very similar except the static is sporadic and will happen even when only the receiver is the oly thing on with no tv or dvd on.

Sounds like a conection problem. disconect all the cables clean the connectors with something like deoxit or any terminal cleaner. reconnect all cables making sure to make the correct conections. If you do not have a signal ground between your sub and amp you should consider it if it is a powered sub the signal ground can go to the preamp or whatever your driving it with.

good luck

My home theater speakers make a constant hum whenever my receiver is on. The loudness of the hum changes with the volume control, and goes away entirely when the system is muted. All components are plugged...


jd40,
Sounds like a grounding issue. The first two places to look into is the powered subwoofer and antenna. During your last test, did you leave the FM antenna and subwoofer connected? Many times the hum is directly related to the antenna and/or the subwoofer and to how they are grounded; creating a ground loop through the receivers ground on the outlet. If the antenna is grounded to the dwellings wiring, hum is inevitable and sometime you can get a ground loop hum from how or how & where the subwoofer is grounded. Try taking them completely out of the loop.

Also try taking it further back to the basics, start with the receiver plugged into a known good grounded outlet with no surge or line conditioner in the loop and nothing connected to the receiver, nothing. Use one speaker and different wire to test each speaker output while in tuner and any other mode but phono. With no signal, you will either get nothing (no hum or static) or just static in the tuner mode. No hum is a good sign. Some systems will mute the speakers if no signal is connected to eliminate the static from being produced through the speakers but a ground loop hum will most likely still be produced even in mute. If you get a hum when nothing is connected to the receiver, try looking into getting a better grounded outlet, even maybe to a different dwelling.

Simply unplug the machine for more than one minute. Then plug it back in again. That makes the system reset and the problem went away.

Subwoofer noise


You didn't say is your sub active or passive.If its active first check signal cables from theater system,power line of the sub, it has to be the same phase as the system.If its passive take a voltmeter disconnect the sub from the system and measure for DC voltage on the SUB output on the system when its OFF.If DC voltage is present your amp is damaged.It can also be that the preamp circuit for the sub doesn't mute the input when unit is on stand by and you hear frequency of your power supply (50-60Hz) on the sub

Please update your post with any Model Numbers that you can retrieve, especially the subwoofer. Off hand, and with the limited amount of information that you have provided, I would GUESS that your subwoofer is simply overheating, and is being shutdown internally, hence protecting the fuse because no short is detected. If you haven't moved and or vaccuumed/cleaned around or near your system regularly, dust, pollution, pollen...you name it, builds up and can easily prevent electronics from breeathing/venting properly.
