Whistling from Philips DCB 310 ipod dock when powered off

I have a Philips DCB 310 Ipod dock/DAB alarm. It makes a really irritating high pitched whistle when switched off. As this lives in the bedroom with us, it is a big problem. The whistle goes off for a few minutes if "ipod/aux" input button is pressed, but then returns.Is this a design problem or have we got a faulty one?Any ideas?Many thanks in advance of your help.

    I bought my mother one of these for xmas and noticed the same thing, i actually think its the plug-in transformer that whistles, noticed a similar thing with nokia phone chargers if left switched on.

    Just thought it was me, as i seem to have very sensitive hearing at this frequency.



    Also dissapointed that there's no remore with this model, unlike the previous model.

SOURCE: I can't use my ipod.. pressed SCR and only tuner and standby is displayed

Yes i had a very similar problem.

I have the MP-235. I could not edit my clock, my subwoofer settings werent active, and I could not switch to AUX.

If you have these problems, you have to hold down the menu button (bass boost) to enter the menu. then scroll around, turn AUX on, change the clock, etc etc.

You turn demo mode off the same way. Kinda silly how they have it all set up.

Hope that helps anyone in the future. i just wasted 3 hrs with this crap!

SOURCE: buzzer instead of radio

I have this radio too and from what I have read in a review on amazon suggests alarm does not tune to DAB only FM - very annoying! Contacted Goodman customer care and they suggested it was a problem with a component but maybe it is just the design.

SOURCE: fridge is whistling

Mine was making a moaning, whistling noise coming from just above the ice maker. It happened when the fan speed changed. I learned on this site that the motherboard was probably defective.
Rather than go thru GE, we found a new one online for 66 bucks. I replaced it in about ten minutes and it's all fixed. Poor materials on the original, but this site was very helpful.

SOURCE: Ipod Dock connection

The Red, green, blue from this adaptor cable
http://store.apple.com/us/product/MB128LL/B?fnode=MTY1NDA0OQ&mco=MjE4ODM1NQ


go into any of the RGB inputs on the Onkyo

The R/W go into the corresponding inputs for audio, Red and White.

One thing to note,

IF you are running one source RGB like you want to do,
you may have to monitor output the video of the amp RGB to the TV, most of these amps do not like to mix HDMI with anything else.

So If you have one HDMI going out to the TV, this solution will not work. You should look at the manual for the Onkyo regarding what paths can pass at the same time. There is usually a small disclaimer in the HDMI section.

Hope that solves your question.

Anyone ever experience a loud and high pitched buzzing type of sound coming from the 5 holes under the docking station??? Ive had it for a long time but rarely used it, worked like a champ until that


I notice that some of my cell phone wall chargers make a high pitched ringing sound, not that loud though. I think cheaper internal electrical components are the culprit. (Opinion)

My ip21 dock will not charge, it plays music when i press the play button but will not charge when docked, and i cant update it becouse of space, hel me


Place the ipod in the dock and move it around a little. Mine was having the same problem, turns out my friend had bent the connector a little when she slams in her ipod and then yanks it out without removing her brick case.

Gently push the ipod forward or backwards till the charging symbol comes up on the ipod battery. I then filled in some putty around the ipod so it stays like that while it's charging.

Remote wont work with the ipod


Make sure the ipod dock connector is clear of any debris both the on the dock and on the ipod. Use a can of air to clean these and try reconnecting it.

Try updating your software on your ipod. Plug it into itunes and update.

My home theater is not reading my Ipod mp3 player.


Make sure the dock wire is connected to the right place, make sure that your version of the iPod is listed as a compatible model - the Philips iPod docks are picky. Also, make sure the home theater system is in DOCK mode.
