Why does my headset buzz all the time even when I am charging


If it is a constant low-pitched buzzing it is probably mains hum which can be difficult to eliminate.
There are two sorts of mains hum; conducted and radiated. Mains operated audio equipment suffers from this when the power supply smoothing is ineffective or when a hum loop has been inadvertently created. High gain preamplifiers with non-shorting inputs, high impedance peripherals and long leads make equipment more vulnerable.
Even battery powered equipment with a high gain can suffer from mains hum received like low frequency radio waves radiated from nearby mains operated equipment and supply wiring.

I have a crosley record player but there is a high pitch tone if I get a better needle will that help with the sound? The tuner adjustment button and volume really doesn't help the super high pitc


Not at all in this case. You either have a loose wire to connections to the cartridge, which can be fixed by hand. Just push the wires on to the cartridge. Or you have a fault in the power supply of the deck. Most likely a mains filter capacitor that is letting the 50hz mains hum in.

The hum will either be caused by a poor earth connection or a power supply problem. The stylus would not cause any hum at all.

Hi, The mains lead for my mothers Sony DAB radio XDR-S7 has got damaged and I need to get her a replacement. Can you offer any suggestions, thanks.


Try taking it to either Radio Shack (USA) or Maplin's UK, I'm certain they will have something to replace it.

I had the same problem on my VTX65. I noticed it would oscillate with different effects so I removed the effects module. Problem solved. Now it's dead quiet. I use a Digitech RP500 so removing the effects module was a non issue.

Ferguson FRG-R121D digital radio doesn't work. Only works on fm stations and then very poorly. Takes a long time to switch on with continuous clicking noise.


Hi,
I had the same problem and solved it. Mine took about 10mins to turn on (constant buzzing and beating before this). 
The problem is the 1000uf and the 220uf capacitors on one of the circuit boards near the front of the device. I replaced these with new ones and problem sorted.
So if you know what your doing, take it apart and solder in some new caps. If not...maybe get a new one!
