It's possible that your ground wire or rca cables have shorted out. Also check where the cartridge is installed in the tonearm to see if the 4 contact pads are corroded or pushed back. Make sure the ground wire is screwed firmly into the mixer or receiver. if oyu have tried these options and still get static, replace the tonearm.

keep me posted

Kawasaki z750 2004 model when u insert key every thing comes on except the fuel pump bike seems like its getting no fuel

remove and test fuel pump relay if the fuse to it is good.try swaping it with another one like it just to see if thats it.(or using a test lead with a fuse of its own see if you can bypass the system power at the pump to make the pump work,that way its only the pump you are testing instead of the whole fuel system)

I have a is1200 pa amp that has a static type sound from 1 chanel, swaping all leads and imputs makes no difference... any ideas????

get a can of freeze spray from an electronics supplier.spray the transistors and chips. if the noise goes away,that is the bad component.the other thing to check is the volume and control pots.spraying them with nutrol or similar will remove noise.

Perfect picture but the sound is just static!

There is either a tuner problem or trouble in the set's sound processing. When you send audio in through the rear panel jacks, you bypass the circuitry that extracts the sound from a broadcast signal. It's impossible to suggest a place to start looking for you to try repairing it on your own. Depending on how large a set this is and its age, you might try calling for service and get an estimate, or use this as an excuse to replace the TV.
