Question about Paradigm PS 1200 Speaker

1 Answer

Loud Humming... I've had this subwoofer for more than 8 years. I basically got it when I first read about it in Audioreview back then and went out and bought it. Awesome subwoofer I tell you. However, with the years that I have been using the subwoofer now in the new place I just moved into...it seems to operate very poorly and I know this is not a piece of junk. I sometimes think that it can be some electronic interference of some sort. I have bought so many brands of subwoofer cables and can't get rid of the hum. How the hell or what the hell do I do now? The warranty is out of date since I have had it for so long and it would probably cost just as much to fix it, so what do I do now? What can I possibly do to get rid of this nasty hum. I now watch movies without my sub since it's not working that way it should and everything seems to be missing that boom sound. Can anyone help me with this problem? SilverStreak

Hum usually comes from the power side, not necessarily the inputs. try physically moving your amp to another room in the house, or even to a friends house, see if the hum goes away. if it does, get an outlet tester ($15) from home depot and test the outlet, hot and neutral may be reversed. talk to someone who knows home electricity if you are not sure what to do in an outlet. if this does not work, try plugging the amplifier into a decent power bar (apc or such) usually used for computers. this sometimes helps as well. (usually less than 30 bucks)

Klh powered subwoofer model ASW10-120B... when you plug in to power... it makes a loud buzzing/humming noise


I would check the caps on the power supply. They are rather large electrolytic capacitors that will look like they burst and/or leaking. When these die, the caps ground and the sub will make a loud buzzing sound. If you are handy with a soldering iron you can replace them yourself. Replace them with the same voltage or a little bigger and same with the size.

If the cap. says 16v 4700pF on it, for example, a 20v 5300pF or a 16v 6200mF cap. will work for this application.

My hln5065w started making a loud noise like a fan noise upon startup recently. The color is fine (I've read the color wheel w/loud noise problems). It has been doing this for the past week, previously...


The loud noises came from the tv with a colors wheel design in it have to be replaced every few years,because the spinning of the colors wheel disc are spinning in very high speed in RPM to have it colors for the tv to operate correctly,the humming,loud motors noises and eventually the effect of the tv colors.The colors wheel disc are worn out and spinning hitting it axes motor,the colors wheel must be replaced to solved this problems.

Television began making a loud audio noise and the picture went purple


Does your TV make a "whining, whirling, clicking, or humming noise?" If the TV have the infamous blinking lights problem , it's most likely a problem with your color wheel. The Samsung BP96-00674A color wheels spin anywhere from 6,000 to 15,000 revolutions per minute (RPM’s)--It is one of the few consumable parts in your Samsung TV. The average life expectancy from our data logging shows the Samsung color wheels are fairly reliable with a MEAN average of 5-8 years. Its basically in charge of creating the colors .God bless you here;s how to take it out and replace it: http://guides.fixyourdlp.com/samsung/bp96-01579a.php
