Humming noice I recently purchased a Sansui LCD TV - when sound goes through side speakers of TV (as opposed to surround sound) there is an audible humming noise which disappears if volume is set to 0. Is this normal?

Re: Humming noice

I have seen similar problems (features?) with Syntax LCD TVs. One thing to try is to make sure that the backlight brightness is set to its highest setting. On my Syntax, when this is set to a darker setting, it produces annoying hum through the speakers. Mine also is smart about turning *off* the audio amplifier when set to zero (or mute), which sounds like the behavior you are describing.

Re: Humming noice

I had a real bad humming noise .. rendered it useless.. I took it all apart no blown caps... So I figured to take a look at the main board. The big board with all the capacitors is the power board. The board under the silver shiny thing is the main board.. 1 capacitor on it not blown. So i took my eye loop (magnifier) and looked for a cold solder joint. All good But when i looked at a few solder connections there were 2 spots with foreign substance shorting out pins. I removed the 2 spots of foreign substance and it now works like a charm. I would have taken pictures but I put it all together and tested it to make ure . Too lazy to take it apart to take pictures. If you take a picture let me know I'll point it out to you.

The audio output section of your tV has the fault. The main reason for HUM on output, is due to a shorted audio output IC. Never use the TV, until the fault has been rectified. Prologed use at this state will damge the speakers, and speakers may also be replaced. OK.

The tv is a Sansui HDLCD1909A I can't find a

The only audio output on the HDLCD1908 and 1909 series of Sansui tv's is the coaxial audio out jack. It only works when the tv is tuned to a digital station on the tv's internal tuner. If this won't work for you try getting your audio from your cable or sat box, etc. I hope this helps you.

No surround sound

Your not goingto achive true dobly sound you need a HDMI solution for this and hence you dvd player is rather old since it does not use HDMI if you want true HDMI sound you need to purchase a DVD with HDMI outputs to the TV

Go to there website to download the pdf version of the manual.

If that does not help look on the back and you should see optical out, audio out type connectors.

Most effective way would be to buy a surround sound amp and connect it via an optical out to the surround sound amp and the surround sound amp will have the connectors for the surround sound speakers.

Speakers on the tv vibrate and it distorts the sound

The speakers on the Sansui aren't very good. Its better to buy a surround sound speaker system to compliment your tv.
