Computer speakers put out static every 10 seconds with printer on.

Every 10 seconds speakers put out static. It stops when the printer is turned off. ?

    The Printer says it is a "Printer-Scanner-Copier" so I assume it is not a fax machine. The speakers are external and connected to the CPU tower. It is a wireless printer and I am wondering if it is emitting RMF every 10 seconds affecting the speakers. I believe the wireless feature is turned on. The printer is connected to the CPU via cable. Not sure how to turn off the wireless feature. Thanks.

Would you be so kind to answer the following questions so that I may better help you. Is the printer an all-in-one with fax capability? Is it a Wireless printer? Is the wireless feature turned on? When you state "speakers" are you referring to the all-in-ones' fax speaker or the PC / laptops audio speakers? Are any of the speakers external and are theywireless too?

    Do you still have the user's guide that came with your printer?

    If not, tell me the make & model of your all-in-one; I will try to locate a guide to walk you through how to turn off the wireless feature.

    That would be my first step in troubleshooting the propblem. Using the process of elimination approach.

Speaker produces noice/static/buzzing sound when it is off


That means that if too much power is going to the speaker or extraneous signals are being picked up by the wiring, it can come through the speakers as static. Stopping static requires finding and eliminating that extra electricity from transmitting through your speakers.
If you're still hearing distortion, turn down the volume on your amplifier until the distortion goes away. If the volume is too low to be easily heard, the problem may be that your amplifier produces too much power for your speakers to handle or that your amp and speakers have different impedance ratings.

  When I plugged the speakers in today (Z-10)


Open up your computer the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer
to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make sure the connection is good
or you might have to clean the dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the CPU central processing unit and your sound card dust causes static to build up in a computer causing it to overheat any many other problems
be sure to wear an anti static earth strap before touching anything inside your computer
hope this helps

Playback distortion


Normal 0 Two things can cause static.
First, If you have your speakers turned up to high it will give you feedback causing distortion and static. I recommend using a headset when videoing.
Second reason is, if you are using a laptop and have added an external microphone between the two it will cause distortion and static.
Not knowing the configuration of your computer makes it harder to analyze the problem.
So hope this is of some help. Bud

The static is probably coming from the computer sound card itself. Turn the volume down on the computer mixer it should limit the static you are hearing.
