Speakers hissing/humming my speakers are plugged in properly and everything was running fine. i noticed today when i listened to my music, the "click" sound the speakers make when i turned up the volume (when i touched the touch sensors) were much louder than normal. i muted the sound and i heard a hissing from the right speaker and an almost humming sound from the other side. does anyone know what this problem is or does anyone know of a way that i can get rid of this? Thanks in advance

Re: Speakers hissing/humming

Hi Nate41
you won't do anithyng
may be is a bad resistor inside, that get hot and probably start to do this problem. try disconecting the speakers, and move to other place, more cooler, and try to see if you don't get the hissing and humming sound now. sometimes dust and hot places get to this problem.
beside that, may be a path to a problem.

Speakers were humming one day out of the blue. Had never done that before. Computer was on but not being used to listen to music or anything at that time. I unplugged speakers, re started computer. ...

Humming out of speakers can be caused by a ground loop, try plugging the speakers into a different outlet entirely (one that has a different ground than the one youre using currently).

I was listening to music loud on my 5.1 speakers and they cut out. No sound, no lights to indicate it's even on. I did notice the fuse but took it out and it looks fine.

What has most likely happened, is that the speakers were over-powered and could not deal with the amount of sound. Or the other thing that would have happened, is that the fuse blew. If either of these is the case, the only solutiono is to purchase a new fuse for the speakers,(make sure you notice the voltage of the fuse - (find that on the original fuse itself.))
And after that, don't listenm to music that loudly again!

Re: Boston digital BA735. Hum with or without input signal.

Hmmm I just got the same problem. They worked fine on my old Dell desktop but when I plugged them in to my son's old Dell PC (maybe 1 year newer than my old one) they all hum like crazy - as you say even if it's just the power plugged in and nothing else. Yes it does have the original power supply. I get no music (but still it hums) from digital out/in but when I switch to analog out/in I hear the music and it still hums, plus the sound is distorted. Wierd.

We are using a mounted data projector to show a DVD before a school musical program and have a hum that all but drowns out the childrens voices on the DVD. How do we hear the voices and get rid of the hum?...

One of the speakers or more than one maybe next to something is giving the speaker feedback. Try placing the speakers farther apart. A cell phone, office phone, or even a laptop could be giving feedback to the speakers. Tring moving the speakers father apart and at different locations. If that does not work you may possibly have the speakers plugged into the the wrong output outlet. Check the wiring connections to make sure they plugged in properly as well.

Speakers stopped working

I get such a thing from time to time on different systems. What I do:

1. Open the Sound Control Panel (the one on this present PC is named: "SoundMax Control Panel").
2. Enable or Disable a certain feature (something like "Virtual Theater Surround" or "Virtual Ear" or "Acoustic Environments" or so on).
3. Click Apply and the sound is back in your speakers.
4. If you want, you can undo the enable / disable and the sound still works.

Static humming from speakers

I've had the same problem and I think I've solved the problem. I noticed that they were fine when I first turned them on. After a awhile the blue light would flicker and static would start. I figured there might be some connection so I unplugged my speakers, took off the thin rubber from bottom and removed the 3 small screws. I carefully pulled the circuit board down, spotted the led light and snipped it off. I put everything back together, double stick taped the rubber piece back on, plugged it back in and have been listening static free for hours. Yippee, no more room full of screaming babies (that's what static sounds like to me)! By the way, I'm no expert. I just have a very strong aversion to static.
Good luck,

No its not EMI.- I have them too and mine are little over a year old. Have noticed the faint smell of electricial burning. Checked the sub and the amp/pwr supply in there must be slowly breaking down. I cant turn my speakers up past 25 percent volume and the crackling/hum gets very bad, We should all be looking for replacement at this point.
