Hello Guys,Can you please help? can I replace the sub woofer on my sony home theatre system DAV-DZ231 with a Celestion sub woofer s10

Presumably, the Celestion subwoofer is self-powered in which case it would connect to an RCA subwoofer output on your Sony system if there is one.

I have brought a new Sherwood home theatre package with an RD-6505 Audio video reciever. The package came with a GSP5110SW subwoofer. We brought all the best cabling and connected it all up and it worked...

Disconnect that "best cabling" and see if the hum stays or goes away. If it stays, the issue is internal to the sub - likely a bad shield or ground point somewhere.

If it goes away, maybe a cable shield between the sub and the source is open, allowing atmospheric noise in. Swap or reseat it.

Humming from SUB333

Replace the plug, they most likely had a ground loop where it was plugged in and cut the common to get rid of noise. Replacement ends are easy to find at Home Depot, Lowes, ACE, etc. Try that first, if you still have an issue, post a comment and I can help you further. Hope this helps

Noise comming from centre speaker of panasonic scpt560 home theatre system

check the cable 1st. If this speaker is powered, you could have a bad shield, or the power is causing a ground loop.
If the speaker is coming from an amp using speaker wire ie: 2 lead + - check the connection and make sure no fraid strands are touching each other on the rear connection.
In addition check your TV, Ap, And speaker system (if sub is powered independently) are all on the same curcuit.
a certain cause for ground looping resulting in hum.

JBL PSW-D110 Humming Loud

If I remember these correctly, there is a bad coupling cap in the amp section. You should see it as the top should have ballooned up. Replace the cap and you should be OK.

There is actually some good news.  I had this problem with my PB10s (1 have 2 PB10s and 2 PB12s) It is one of 2 things, the first is that it could be a capacitor and resister combination on the amplifier board (which was the fix for our PB10 with the same problem), or 2nd, the AMP IC, which is not available for the PB12. hmmm

PB10 Loud Hum and Crackle- LED Lights mixed Red/Green

Hello, Jesse. I doubt I can help, but there is at least one SIMPLE thing you can try - with maybe a 10% chance it wil return your unit to normal: Unplug the unit for 30 seconds, then plug it back in to a DIFFERENT outlet. Oh, yes - there are NO fuses or other "reset" devices. I'm sorry I couldn't offer you more help.
