Monitor Audio FB212 buzzing

FB212 does not go automatically into standby mode, so when there is no signal coming from the receiver it still buzzes, like 60Hz. If I manually switched of and than put back in Auto mode it goes to StandBy, red light comes on and its silent, but as soon as signal comes in or I manually move it to On and than back to Auto, the green light for On stays and buzzing is there. It only stops if Offed manually. Help!

Apparently there is an issue with the 10000uF 80V capacitors. They are poor quality ones and the issue is that the dielectic forms hydrogen internally which eventually blows the dielectric out.

How do i fix the buzzing on my nad t741 5.1 receiver?

Bad screening on your cables.
Braided cable coax touching signal cable
Wires in close proximity to power wires
Interference from 'always on' appliances like fridges, freezers and heating boilers.

Disconnect each lead in turn. If that doesn't fix it, it is an appliance.

Hi, I have a sony rear projection TV when i try to turn it on it clicks ,buzzes for a for seconds then goes into standby, i took the back off and the buzzing is coming from the ballast board, in particular...

That is correct that canister is the lamp, seems its trying to light, If you have not replaced the lamp since you purchased the unit then this is the perfect time to do so. This buzzing from the ballast is normal just means it has received signal to light the lamp. Just start by replacing the LAMP>>>

I have recently acquired a old Denon AVR3801 Home cinema Receiver. I have plugged it all up and switched it on, but although the system seems to work quite nicely, the amp itself makes a buzzing/humming...

The solution of leaving the thing on all the time would certainly work, but most of the time a buzzing sound inside a relatively robust audio amplifier is being caused by the huge transformer coil in the thing. Or wires that are in close proximity thereto.

In some ways, you're blessed that the buzzing is coming from the unit itself, and not through the loudspeakers.

I have a hum or buzz on AM and FM bands only.

I had the same problem, but it is not the tuner module! An exchange of capacitor C899(100μF/35V) on the standby board has resolved the problem. Under a dollar from an electrical store and you are all sorted. 10 minute fix for those with a soldering iron.

My monitor gets switched off when i connect to cpu,the moment i disconnect it from cpu,its switches on automatically.what may be the problem?

One of two things:

1.) Your video card is 'stuck' in standby mode, which in turn sends a signal putting the monitor in low power 'standby' mode as well. When you disconnect it, the monitor returns to normal 'on' mode. Rebooting the PC should correct this issue.

2.) Your resolution or refresh rate are set outside the range supported by the monitor. When you connect the monitor, it starts receiving a signal that it can't display, so it simply turns off. You'll need to reboot the PC and press F8 quickly to bot into safe mode and correct the monitor settings.

you can try to turn the stecker around some times this helps as some equipment is sensative to plus plus instead of plus > min connections

Buzzing in speakers

First, if the buzzing came in gradually, I would suspect the filter caps. If it started suddenly and goes up and down with volume control, I would think it is in signal path - maybe the dsp board.

Buzzing emitted by vsx-409

Could be the result of having DTS compatible equipment connected through the analog inputs on the VSX-409D. Noise and distortion will result as essentially the DTS signal is being played back undecoded. If this is the case you'll have to connect your LD or CD player through the digital connections (coax or optical) and set 'Signal Select' (button on front) to 'Digital'.

Buzzing from vr 306

the power transfomer has a loose lamination in it. Gnerally too expensive to replace... check all the mounting screws to it are tight, sometimes a washer under 1 corner may help to rid the buz. may be the standby transfomer also, These can be replaced for much less than a mains transformer.

I have solved this sometimes in the past by giving the laminations of the transformer a strategic wack with a hammer. .
