This problem has happened with the same console but with different TV's. To get it to stop I turn off the TV and Playstation. Then restart each. Sometimes the same loud humming happens again from the TV speakers

Re: Loud humming sound coming from TV speakers
I believe this is a dirt and contamination issue within the PS2. You need to open the case and thrououghly clean it out. This means thoroughly, Motherboard, and all. You will need a can of circuit board cleaner.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Possibly a bad cable or bad ground or bad outlet?. Easy solution, try a different outlet and see if the hum still exists. Also, make sure your speaker cables are NOT run parallel along with, or close to any power cables, Speaker wires can and will pick up AC "Humm" noise.
Based on what you have tried if a buzz or loud static via the speakers you have something wrong in the audio output circuit of the set--problem here is that circuit may be part of the Main board that processes all signal---a look inside---following the speaker leads back would lead you to that board.
A simple thing to do to narrow it a little (you may have done this) is with sound all the way off put your ear to the internal speaker--hear anything at all like a deep hum?
Depending on age of set and cost of the board likely bad it may or may not be a do it yourself repair.
I have the exact TV and had the exact same problems. It is the light engine with color wheel that needs to be replaced, and they are VERY hard to come by for this model. Our repairman has had our TV for 5 months and still cannot locate a vendor that carries the part. He said according to Toshiba, the part has been discontinued. If you happen to find one, please post. I'll do the same.
hello, the speakers are fualty or have a shorted connection if they came with the tv contac your seller and arrange for a replacement imediately dont wait. since they are giving you feedback dont use them they may cuase other fualts in your tv, any component thats cuases hum or noise when pluged into the tv should not be used at all.
one important thing is to have a grounded plug this also may cuase fualts down the line,
if posible get a power line conditioner or ups (uniteruptable power supply)
flat panels are very over protective you dont want the tv to start blinking. since flat panels have built in protection circuts any slight short or fualt may cuase the wide screen to go into circut shutdown mode and this will cost you more if the speakers create a short in your audio circut it may damage your widescreen internal boards and cuase a system shutdown circut (red light flashing no picture)
contac your sellers site let them know your speaker are cuasing a loud hum
and that you will need the speakers replaced these are definitely fualty
if you dont have any coverage or you got the set as is then dont take any chances use other speakers.
if you are electronically inclined you can open these up and find out whats wrong with them internaly it may be a loose connection, since opening up the equipment may void your warantee contac the store first see what they say..
good luck happy holidays
More often than not, the humming sound on any electronic device is brought about by the AC side of the power supply not only of the device itself but also all other equipment it is attached to. In your particular case, it maybe introduced into the system from:
(coaxial) cable TV leadin;
connections of DVD, VCR, game consoles and others;
electrical noise from lamp dimmers, lights with electronic ballasts, wireless phones.
It is interesting to note, that the noise could be from other appliances plug in the same circuit as the TV, you of course could try plugging it into another outlet or branch. In some instances, you could even try filtered regulators similar to those used by desktop computers.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
I had this issue a few years ago and the power cable from one of the inner terminals had come loose. It was still touching but whenever the sub would really pound it would jump off the connection and then reconnect causing it to hum. It was the most annoying thing ever so I finally pulled off the amp plate (super easy) and you could clearly see the loose wire. I had to use a good soldering iron to put it back on since it's a pretty fat wire. If you're not under warranty anymore then pop the back off and see if that's the issue.
