You have an impedance issue. Typically this happens when you are using the fm transmitter and the interferrence is being introduced from your cars' electrical system. You can fix it cheaply by using a cassette adapter or direct auxiliary connection.

I checked my speakers there not blown out still making buzzing sound. Why?


the buzzing sound is an symptom or indication that there is a defect on the output audio system from your unit. A good audio system does not give out a buzzing sound.
Check for shorted audio wire coming from your audio unit going to the speakers

Static popping and buzzing sounds come from the speakers when the car is running. The Radio is not turned on and it will continue for a long time, quit then start again as you are driving.


Is it a factory amplified system? Could be the volume knob. Might try unplugging the radio for test purposes and see if it still pops and buzzes to get a better idea of where to go next

Buzzing sound car stereo


A lound buzzing sound is an indication that the Driver (transistor) for the amplifier final is bad. This is not so much a buzzing and it is extreme in loundness.

My Stiletto 2 works fine in the car and in the home dock, but it will not read my battery. I have changed batteries out with another Stiletto 2, and the batteries show 100% charged in the other Stiletto,...


You may want to try to run a device recovery. Sometimes when a battery is drained, the Stiletto only remembers the status of the last battery as it ran completely out. A device recovery would help it reinitialize and recognize a new battery. Instructions and links for device recovery can be found here: http://www.tss-radio.com/links

Nad c270 buzzing in amp


The buzzing is coming from the transformer. It is almost expected of an amplifier of this size, that the transformer (a large one) will excite the resonance of the casework and make some noise.

Quasar 1989 tv makes a buzzing motor sound


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, if you have confirmed that the source of the buzzing sound is from inside the TV, then that would indicate a component about to fail or would need attention. Let us try process of elimination:
  • tuner - most unlikely, the tuner is responsible for selecting the channel. No component/part of the tuner could make such a mechanical buzzing sound;
  • speaker(s) - most unlikely, the speaker could have a buzz but generally would not affect the video nor cause snow (weak TV signals);
  • transformer - a strong possibility although without knowing the exact model, at most generic ideas; power transformer, flyback transformer, horizontal drive transformer (unlikely);
  • arcing - another strong possibility. This could be caused by damp, dusty surroundings of the components especially at the FBT area. Another area that could have adverse effect when dusty/damp would be the anode cap.
This of course would require a fair familiarity of electronic components/circuitry and safety procedures, use of a DVM and a soldering iron. It would be to your added advantage access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings. Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Stiletto2 sometimes has static while playing mp3's from exp. card


I also own a Stiletto 2 and I have noticed this same problem, but only when playing MP3's in my car. What I have found is that if the volume on the Stilletto is too high it creates distortion. The solution is to turn down the volume on the actual Stilletto and just use the volume on the car stereo. Problem solved everytime.

Buzzing after 1 hour


Is the buzzing coming from the back of the TV, staying loud even when the volume is turned all the way down, or is it coming from the speakers?
