Local Radio Station Coming Through Speakers

I heard a faint sound from my speaker. When I listened closer, I heard the programming from a local radio station. I have never listened to it streaming on-line.

It's called RFI, Radio Frequency Interference.

Certain capacitors in the amp, or on the motherboard can act as radio tuners, as can unshielded speaker wire. Your only hope is to use shielded speaker cables, ensuring that the shield is grounded, and make sure you have three prong (grounded) outlets. Sometimes rerouting your wires behind the PC can help.

Do you have dial-up service/modem. If so the telephone wire is susceptible to RFI in a big way. The RFI can bleed into the PC and cause your situation.

Try reading this artile and see if there is something that can help you in it...

This problem has been around since before the computer age and is quite common, it's also happened with local taxi firms in the area suddenly broadcasting on your speakers.

The reason it happens is that the speaker cable length is very close to the frequency the station is broadcasting on one solution is to pruchase a ring magnet and wrap the cable several time around it, another is to use screened cable, both are not cost effective, the simple solution is to purchase a speaker extension lead.

I am trying to re tune to my local radio station radio Merseyside on dab but it says station not available or goes to another station ?


Have you checked the frequency of that Station?
Also check your aerial.

I have also found this:
Listeners to DAB digital radio in the Merseyside area will need to retune on Wednesday 20th April following a frequency change that will affect local radio stations.

The local DAB multiplex carrying BBC Merseyside, Radio City 1-3 and Capital Liverpool among others will be moving to a new frequency in order to allow better reception over a wider area. The current frequency will be turned off late on Tuesday 19th April. The new frequency will go live from 6am on Wednesday 20th April, after which listeners will need to rescan their DAB radios in order to continue listening.

Radio has constant high pitcs sound when you hit weather button


This is common on some WR100 models. This means ur speaker is blown, and it wont work anymore. Try buying the new WR120, it has a more stable speaker.

Radio Interferance on my logitech computer speakers


You may be now living too close to a radio station. Sometimes when this is the situation, anything electronic gear plugged into a wall socket can act like an antenna, thus receiving signals from local radio stations.

When the sub has power to it the speakers play a barely audible radio station. Also if my cell phone is on the desk the speakers play an awful noise. It happens even if the speakers are not connected to...


If you have ATT cell service, this happens when phones get too close to electronic devices. Move the phone away from devices. And when/if you live near a local radio station, or their antenna....a good chance that electronic devices will act like antennas, thus picking up radio signals.

The phono works, but i get no sound when tuner on


This usually means that the tuner is not getting sufficient reception for the station you are trying to listen to.

Receivers come with cheap wire loop antennas try upgrading to a powered FM antenna available online or at your local Radio Shack.

Hope that helps

Wiring speakers to amp for both 5.1 channel and 4 speaker listeni


I am assuming that you want to have a normal stereo ( 2 channel ) from, CDs, Radio Etc.. To be able to play from all of your speakers for a more surrounding sound experience, for parties or just more sound. I am also assuming you currently have your speakers wired like standard 5.1 in the bottom diagram on page 19 of your receiver manual. To change the way the sound is coming from your speakers you will need to refer to the “Sound Field Programs” part of your manual starting on page 52. You will want to be in the input source you would like to change “ie: radio” Let assume you want to change radio, once the radio is on; Rotate the “N” Program selector, (or press “5” and then “12” Prog < /> repeatedly ). You will want to change to program, “7ch Stereo” this should take your 2ch signal and send it to all connected speakers. If this does not work, please let me know.

Picking up Radio?


hi,

my friends dental work in her mouth enabled her to hear music through her head due to the dissimilar metals in the dental work. I have heard mixed reviews for dell speaker sets which may or may NOT be actual dell equipment, you can try opening the amp box and lining it with tin foil, that may help, if its under warranty send it back. In the auto industry something like this would be called a monday(hangover) production, whereas something produced mid week would be of much higher fit and finish. ridiculous but that kind of stuff still happens..
