Loud hum with static when speakers turned on

My 3 series II worked well for 2 years. Now when turn on the system there is a loud hum with static the volume of which is not reduced by using the volume control. I have tried using a remote power point but it makes no difference. All of the connections are sound. I am using the speakers from an IMac using the earphone jack as directed.

There is def. a loose connection somewhere in your system. This is a grounding problem within the system if nothing else. Def. a "lazy" connection somewhere.

Bose cinemate speaker system suddenly gets very loud why?


If the unit is around 5-6 years old or less, you have a bad Rotary Encoder. It is an input to the microprocessor IC(a computer within your Bose). If you would like to inquire about repairing your Bose, please visit me at my website, audioserviceclinic.com. You may contact me directly from the site.

You could have done a very slow damage to the Yamaha if your UPS was not a pure sine wave type ( on line UPS ). Most of the UPS we get are called Off line type and are far cheaper than the On line pure sine wave type. The out put of the Off line type UPS is not a sine wave ( the natural waveform of AC voltage ) and strains the Power supply circuit of any device connected to it.
Now if the humming sound is the same irrespective of the volume position, it is a power supply problem. You might be having a leaky rectifier diode or capacitor. First change the diodes and see if its ok then change the main filter capacitors too.

No display and Thump and static from bass


The poor display is a known problem.. see my other posts for the cure. As for the thump..a slight one isn't uncommon... but static?- you mean crackling? from the cubes? all of them? unplug the audio leads from the head unit to the bass and see if it stops..then you can narrow it down a bit.

Loud hum when Bose Companion 3 Series II speakers are turned on.


I had the same problem for many months. I asked a sound & video professional and he suggested I move the subwoofer away from any power source. I had the subwoofer next to my UPS. Once separated and moved all wiring away from the power supply (about 12") the low bass hum was practically gone.

We have the same issue. I owned the unit for about 2 1/2 years before it quit working. The Yamaha YSP-1 has been sitting on my shelf for the last 2 years now collecting dust. If anyone finds a solution, please let me know
