All lights are on and a humming noise. Doesn't respond when pressing any keys

I have a pth5498 when u plug it in tv doesn't come on just makes clicking noise no tubes light up or anything just sound and front power light....


There could be many items that can cause that symptom. However I always assume convergence on any rear projection which can easily be checked by unplugging the convergence amp board and then plugging in the set and press power , if the set powers up turn it back off, and you will know the convergence ICs and associated resistors on that board have failed. Although its easier to replace the board unless you have good soldering skills. I am pasting a pic of the board which is suspended above the main chassis just mark the wires then unplug the set from the wall first, but then unplug the wires from that board and then try powering up the set.if you need further assistance , respond to this same post slinteriors_21.jpg

My AV receiver turns off a couple of seconds after I turn it on. I did what the manual said, unplugged the power source and removed all of the speakers but it continues to do the same thing. Anything else...


Hi,
you may have a bad Earth power 110 V AC cable connection which makes such hum / buzz even nothing connected..
Check the connections between components and make sure they are secure before proceeding to the next Step. Sometimes, loose connections can cause a hum.
  • Separate the audio cables from the power cables; electromagnetic interference from the power cables can cause stereo hum. Use cable ties to secure the audio cables away from the power cables.
  • Plug in a surge protector to the outlet, and then plug all the components into that surge protector
  • Connect a ground plug to the surge protector and then plug the ground plug into the main outlet. A ground plug is available at any hardware store, and turns a three prong connection into a two prong. Ground plugs help eliminate 60 cycle hum.
  • 5 Connect the ground wire from your turntable to the ground wire connection on the receiver. If this doesn't work, looking on the back there should be a grounding point,

    Unplug your receiver.. Split a wire and attach one of the splits to the receiver where you will see the text, "ground" or something similar. Attach the other end to something metal such as a pipe that goes into the ground. Secure with electrical tape. Plug in.
    connect the ground wire to a screw on the electrical outlet.

    I have an older model Harman Kardon AVR and have started hearing humming from the speakers that are attached to it. Is my receiver going bad or is there something else I need to do to fix this problem?

    Hi,I would suggest you to first trying unplugging/ switching off your device for 5 minutes. This restores and refreshes the device. Go for it
    Let me know if this works, if it doesn’t then I’ll provide some other alternative solution.
    Thanks

    Humming


    Hi,

    More often than not, the humming sound on any electronic device is brought about by the AC side of the power supply not only of the device itself but also all other equipment it is attached to. In your particular case, it maybe introduced into the system from:
    • (coaxial) cable TV leadin;
    • connections of DVD, VCR, game consoles and others;
    • electrical noise from lamp dimmers, lights with electronic ballasts, wireless phones.
    It is interesting to note, that the noise could be from other appliances plug in the same circuit as the TV, you of course could try plugging it into another outlet or branch. In some instances, you could even try filtered regulators similar to those used by desktop computers.

    Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    I replaced the light bulb, now it displays -F6- and pushing any button causes a humming noise.


    I left the unit unplugged over night, plugged it back in the next day and still had the same problem.
