Re: Loud buzzing

Check your connections again, if you have the audio and video reversed you will get this exact problem no video/ fuzzy video, and squealy noise out of only one speaker (other will likely sound correct) You're watching the sound channel, and listening to the video channel basically... hehe

I have a Dell W3706MH tv monitor and the sound just stop working. I unplugged the speakers and plugged them back in still no sound. I unplugged them because it was making a loud buzzing and popping noise...

If possible, plug the speakers into a portable device such as a cell phone, portable cd player or a tv that is equipped with a headphone jack (if speakers have the jack). If not, if the speakers have the red and white, ref and black or black and white male end connectors, plug them into a tv or dvd\blue ray player. If you get sound they are good, and you need to adjust your sound options on your computer. Let me know if this helps\works. Also, not all speakers are compatible with all computers and must have the same sound level equivalence to the device they are being used with. i.e. Ohms etc.

Wall plug for TV buzzes

Have the outlet checked by a qualified electrician. Sounds like either a power issue or ground. You should not get a buzz from an outlet for any reason.
If you plug something else into the outlet does it make the same noise?
If yes, something going on with the power. If not, then the TV power supply might be doing it, but the noise would be behind the TV and not the outlet.

My polaroid fxm-1911c picture is distorted, sound distorted with loud buzzing when I try to utilize the tv signal input jack, also the dvd player doesn't work

Looks like there are some partial defects in the TV and might need attention of a qualified service technician. Anyhow, make sure that the input cable, RC jacks and sockets all do not have any loose contacts. Go through settings and ensure that every set up is as it should be.

My samsung lcd tv will only show me black and white when i plug my wii in component 2, how do i make it go back to color?

Your problem may be that you need to select the "AV" input on the HDTV. Samsung HDTVs of late combine the composite video with the green input component video. To use the yellow composite video in the green input port you have to select the proper AV input on the TV which tells the TV to go composite video (yellow) instead of component video (green). Try this, it may work.

No picture, sound works, but along with high-pitched noise

My guess is that you might have the yellow (video) cable plugged into an audio input on the TV. Make sure that the yellow cable is plugged into both the video out on the DVD player and the video in on the TV. Most of these connections are color coded.

As a diagnosis, try changing the TV input (using the remote) and let me know if you still get the buzzing on the other inputs. If no, then, it's most likely your RCA connections. If yes, it's another problem.
