Cables are sometimes expensive for a reason: They offer more or less sheilding from grounds of various
sources, including your own body.

Whatever cables you are using are allowing a 60 Hz hum to interfere with your enjoyment of your unit.

Since the cables have to be in close proximity with both your body and the back of the unit, which emits
a 60Hz signal, from your house wiring, which becomes the humming noise you experience, the AV cables
should be heavily sheilded so as to protect the signal from your MP3 player from interference by the 60Hz
signal to increase the signal to noise ratio and thereby reduce your hum.

So, shop for the cables with the least loss and the highest signal to noise ratio. And enjoy!

I hear a sharp snap then a loud humming noise which sounds electrical. If I turn the refrigerator switch off, then on, the humming stops. Otherwise, it lasts 10 to 15 minutes. Its getting louder.


DID U CHECK UR EVAPORATOR FAN AND LISTEN IF THE NOISE IS COMING FROM IT? COULD BE BROKEN OR IMPEEDED IMPELLER HITTING SOMETHING ON START UP THEN GOING INTO A HUM?

Humming sound to speakers from amplifier


Hello,

It sounds like you may have a ground loop issue. I'd start by checking all the power and ground connections. Then disconnect the RCA wires from the amplifier. If the hum goes away then you should try grounding the stereo to a better grounding point, the factory grounds are usually not very good at all. Then try it again, if it is still there try replacing the RCA"s.

If the hum is still there after you've redone the connections and replaced the RCA's, you may need to install a ground loop isolator.
Both www.crutchfield.com and www.sonicelectronix.com sell good ones.

Hope this helps

AKAI 54" Big screen, Turn TV on picture no sound, then within a few minutes humming sound gets louder then stops and starts


Sounds like the audio amplifier circuit is bad. I do not know if where that is in that TV. If you were to hook a boom box or stereo receiver to the TV (via the audio out jacks on the TV), you could monitor the sound that way. If you get clean sound, then the problem is in the amplification circuitry. If you still get humming, etc., then the problem is further upstream.

Also, clarifying... the picture has not changed one iota, correct?

My dvd player is making a loud humming sound when i load up a dvd. it is the phillips dvp5960


Does the DVD player still work, even though it's making the humming noise?
The humming noise may just be normal for that machine. Turn your TV up louder .
If the player doesn't work, the drive is broken, and you would have to send it to Phillips if your warranty is still working. If the Player still works, check to see if the disc is warped or cracked, this'll make the drive unstable, and make the noise.

Hope my answer helped :)
