Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have cable phone and was talking on a regular phone (not a portable) plugged into the wall. Then I heard buzzing like the radio buzzes when your cellphone is going to ring. Then I heard my neighbor talking on the line. What would cause the neighbor's cellphone to cut into my phone line. The cable company said it shouldn't happen. I was on the phone to the bank so I don't think it was their line.

What happened is that the cell phone frequency was just right to cause the voice coil in your phone to pick up the signal, there is no other explanation for this, it is rare but it does happen, we call it cross talk, other than putting radio shielding up around the house there is really no way to avoid it, it is very vry rare.

No volume on the cable tv setting?


Does the set have a earphone jack? if dirty or damaged it will cut the TV sound out---about the only other possible reason is a audio problem in the TV itself---if possible put ear up to speaker to see if any sound or buzz is heard.

Buzzing sound when sub is on even without turning my amp on, if you can call me on my phone 909 938 9219 it be better for me thanks, i am little slow with my computer, please help


Buzzing is usally AC line noise leaking into an un-shielded cable somewhere or a floating ground. If the AC plug is reversible, try that. Sometimes the buzz is from an attached device. Make sure all audio cables are plugged in tightly at each end and routed away from or at right angles to any power cords and away from other sources of strong magnetic fields like TV's.

Disconnect the input(s) and see if it hums in the absence of an audio source. A bad audio cable shield or unwisely-routed audio cables will allow entrance of unwanted signals from external power sources, magnetic fields, even dimmer-controlled track lights.
I've also seen variable track lights induce noise but it's usually minor.

Try rotating the power cord in the wall outlet.

If it still buzzes with no cables or anything external attached there's an internal problem.

My wireless phone is about seven years old. There is a loud static sound in the dial tone and a loud buzzing sound when I am talking, which can also be heard by the person I am talking to. I just put new...


Try disconnecting the cordless phone base unit from the phone jack where it's connected and plug in a basic corded phone. If you still have the noise, the trouble is in the phone line itself and you'll need to contact your telephone service provider.

If the phone line isn't at fault, the trouble is in the base unit. Most likely, the power supply filtering isn't working, and you're hearing hum in the audio as a result. If the base unit uses an external plug-in adapter (a "wall-wart") with a DC output, you can try replacing it with a new one. Radio Shack sells replacements. Just be sure to get one with the same voltage rating, the same or higher current rating, and the right polarity plug. It may be that the old adapter isn't filtering any more because of its age.

If the adapter is an AC output type, or the base has a built-in power supply with a regular AC power cord, you should probably shop for a new phone. The trouble is in the unit itself, and you'll spend more trying to have it fixed than it's worth.

The phone has a buzz on it and it is not the line it's the phone att945


Buzz may be from many different sources.

First, is there DSL on this line? Make sure you have a filter on the line going to the phone or plug your phone into the jack coming out of the DSL modem.

Next, remove any other device from the line and check the buzz. Sometimes a fax machine, computer or credit card machine will create noise on the line.

Then check the connections in the wall, any splitter and in the phone. Make sure the wires are straight before you plug in the phone cord.

If that does not help, take a regular phone and plug each wire into that phone and listen for the buzz, it may be a pinched wire.

Or, you may have a wire running past something that has a large electrical current. Try moving the wires away from a television, florescent light, etc.

Lastly, these phones have a cable length maximum. If you have too much cable in the office they will act as an antenna and this will add buzz to the line.

Loud buzzing while other phone is on base. Switching phones on base has no effect on issue. Taking phone off base hitting 'talk' helps with issue, but buzzing returns upon placement on base..


did you have "buzzing" Before these phones? Anything electrical fan etc on the same circut breaker of your house?. Or buzzing start recently with these already running. It sounds like your describing "electrical noise" and not really a issue with the phoned them selves. Try relocating the base if you have another open wall jack and on another circut. If you notice it goes away check whats all on that circut (wall outlet) that you unplugged the base from. depending on the noise or lack of at the new location it would probly be something running on there. ..
Hope this gives ya a solid start on a fix :)

Buzzing noise while making a call


This happens at many phones due to the speaker which buzzes because of the waves made by the conversation. For example try calling someone and be near a desktop pc speaker or radio and you'll hear the same buzzing noise

Audio buzz


Check to see if reversing the plug takes away the buzz. Some times turning the plug over in the wall socket i.e. reversing polarity, will remove the buzz.

Buzzing noise from speakers


The buzzing noise is being heard probably because there is another electronic device around that's using radio waves to function. (Such as a cell phone, a cordless phone adapter or a wireless router. Even microwaves and ceiling fans can give off these sounds.)

My advice would be to try and move around or turn off some appliances in your room that may give off radio waves.

Problem is probably with your cable box as you have confirmed that the set is working by using the dvd player, that is unless you have a bad cable for the cable box.
