The humming noise is produce when the power supply is trying to compensate the other circuitry's demand for proper power getting to them. The problem is that the capacitors have lost their dielectric capabilities and are not able to filter and provide a clean power in a timely manner.
Let me know if you require further assistance.

My TV makes a humming noise and the display on channels that are broadcasted in HD is not working.


the reason for it not displaying HD channels would be the Tuner itself, The humming from the back would be a fan that is dirty from dust or its is given out.

solution for the humming clean out the fan! check fan to amke sure its doing the right RPM rotations per min. For the tuner this would need to be looked at and tested by a Tv repair person.

Constant humming/buzzing noise


I purchased a poloroid tv 3732 in may of 2005 from circuit city, after about 14 months the set began making a clacking sound and humming sound that gets so loud it is unbareable. I have to turn the set off. I have found out I am not the only one with this problem that has a poloroid tv. I had a technician at my home that told me there is a service warranty on these sets because the wrong part was used and the part needs to be replaced.
