This is the test tone for the speakers, usually means you have connected the input lead into the diagnostic port. The input leads plug into your computer/ipod/TV etc. there may be 2 of them but you only need one plugged in.

That sound mainly comes from a mic that is not turned off or it may be because your unit is too close to another object that also has sound devices/hardware in it. Your computer would not be an issue.

Weird siren type sounds on the my 2006 Honda accord factory radio


Evil works in deceptive ways............. Just kidding, dude. I honestly have never heard of anything like this. Almost gotta be a wiring harness issue. If it were fuse-related, the radio would either work or not. I'm totally puzzled. Let me know when/if you figure it out. Best wishes.....

When i turn the volume up to(17-20) my sound cuts out and my speakers make a cracklin noise.i have bought new speakers and rechecked all wires.my speakers are rated at 50 watts rms and my stereo pumps out...


It seems you needs more power to maintain the level of good sound.Maybe the maximum volume is 30 - then the mininum is 15 and you can't hear any cracking sound. If you exceed 15 the minimum, as you said starting 17 - 20 you hear crackling sound .Then you reach ,what they called the "cliping level"so much distortion and crackling sound,your stereo too small to accomodate .You must add a power amplifier so crackling will gone and to fit your listening pressure...

Hope it may help you;

MY speakers are making weird noise, i have logitech x240 and on youtube i can only listen audio, not voice. Everything is connected but its still making weird noise.


the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer you will have to open up 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 from your computer dust causes static which causes your computer to overheat and all sorts of problems
be sure to wear an anti static earth strap before touching anything inside your computer

have you tried this control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select the appropriate speakers from the drop down list or click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to system devices + to expand,system speaker right click properties then select use this device (enable)
try cleaning your computer of 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

hope this helps

My speakers isnt working anymore i dont know why tha lights are going on everything seems 2 be fine before when i touched tha 3.5mm jack it made a strange sound that how i know it was working but now it...


This article contains tips for resolving sound related issues in Windows XP.
No Sound From all speakers
  • Check that the speakers are powered on.
  • Check that the speakers are connected to the correct ports on the PC. This is particularly important If the customer has both integrated sound and a sound card.
  • If the speakers have a volume control button - ensure that this is turned up.
  • Check that the Windows Audio service is running. If this is not running then many of the subsequent troubleshooting steps will not work. Go to Start->Run and type services.msc. Double cliick on Windows Audio. Select Start if possible and check that the Startup Type is Automatic. Click OK.
  • If the speakers are digital speakers then try forcing the sound card to use digital. Go to Start->Control Panel->Sound and Audio Devices.. On the Volume tab, click the Advanced button in the Device Volume section. In the Volume Control window, below the Play Control Volume slider, click Advanced. If this does not show select Advanced Controls from the Options menu. Select Digital Output Only
  • If possible try an external audio source like a Walkman, CD, or MP3 player (connect the speakers to the headphone jack)
  • Check that the volume control in Windows isn't muted or turned too low. See the screen shots below. Go to Start->Control Panel and double click on Sounds and Audio Devices.

Speakers aren't turning on


Hiya,

Have you checked that the mains electricity supply is working properly? If so then what about the fuse that is inside the plug or adapter to your device?

Now there is not much in the way of either working components or issues that can make this device go rogue; so I am forming the conclusion that this is power related. Also have you made sure that the power cable and any other wiring to this device is not damaged, missing or dysfunctional?

Nowmight be a good time to pick up that multimeter and test this device electronically and see if the operational parameters are correct.

If after you have tested this and you still hve problem, do let me know, and I will work further on solving this for you.

In the meantime, I hope this is the fixya for you and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Yours sincerely

Oz

The speakers are very staticky. Is there anything


Hi , this is a common problem with this type of dvd player it starts happening after it has been used for a while the problem is actually with the speakers they tend to start getting this problem after regular use.
Their isnt an easy fix for this problem the only wat to solve this problem is to get the speakers replaced if you take it to repair shop they will do this for you.
On your model if you have a setup menu you can enter the sound options and turn down the bass and treble a bit doing this might reduce the crackle but it wont be long term fix.
sorry their is know easy fix for this.
Do you get this sound whilst using head phones or just the internal speakers if you get the crackling noise through headphones also then the chances are the lense needs replacing if you have tried a good lense cleaner then replacing parts is the only way to solve the problem your having.
Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
