Question about NAD L40 CD Player

2 Answers

High pitch sound even with speakers disconnected

My NAD L40 is about 5 years old, and it works fine, but since a month or so it has been making a high pitch sound whenever it is turned on, the sound is not very loud, but it is annoying. I have even unplugged the speakers and everything connected to the receiver (aux input), and the sound is still there. This is regardless of the input (CD, AUX, TAPE, TUNER).

Thanks.

Hi Naduser,
I hav had the same problem (probably). It is a smal chopping powersuply to power the backlight of the lcd-display. It's a small pc-board mounted at the rear of the cd-cabinet, just next to the mains-power-transformer. It can be easyiely disconnected by unplugging the 3-pole connector from the mother-board, and the sound will be gone. However the display readout will faint down then, but its still readable. The higher serial-numbers don't have this problem, so an exchange of the small pc-board might be the best solution.

Succes, Hildert

Toshiba HD ready TV ct 90158 makes high pitched sound


A high pitch sound can be a capacitor losing power it would sound a bit like a fire work. most have back up on the board but it put more pressure on them the more times you use the tv. would check them and replace. all of them can be 5 in a row in some models.

Samsung SlimFit 30" high pitch whining noise


I have had the same high pitch tone problem for several months after about 20 minutes of use. It is so bad it's rendered the TV almost unwatchable. I contacted a repair place from Samsung's website. I was told that is likely the flyback transformer. I don't know what it is, but it sounds cool like a flux capacitator. I was told it would be about $100 to fix. However, I have had very little luck getting the repair shop to order the part and do the work.

Nad c520 high pitched ringing


Hi, From your description, it sounds as if the noise is coming from the circuit that controls the display backlight. If I recall correctly, the C520 has an EL backlight just like the C521 (which I have one of). On the front of the circuit board, there should be a little yellow trimmer potentiometer that controls the brightness of the display. It may be that the noise will go away if the brightness is turned down some. If  the noise varies as you turn the controller, but doesn't go away completely, the backlight may need servicing.

High Pitch Sound From Samsung TXN3071WHF 30" TV


I think its the flyback and its starting to leak. this is a component responsible for the high voltage of your tv set. always observe safety in dealing with this. Have it check by a qualified technician. Good luck!
