Loud Buzzing during commercials

Hi - I have a Mitsubishi TV about 7 years old with cable - I have had cable in to fix the very loud buzzing that occurs mostly (99%) during the commercials. Time Warner has been unsuccessful so far and one guy advised that maybe I needed some gadget to filter out whatever is causing the interference however, I need to know what that gadget could be. Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated.

If you are like us here in UK- that TV aint going to get fixed or if they can they will charge nearly the same as for a new one.
The loud buzzing from what you described is from the Line Ouput Transformer[LOPTI] on its last legs, it generates anything up to 20,000volts and ain't to be messed with.

Hi, Mary with Dish Network Customer Service. I had this issue with my TV as well. You will need to turn the TV volume up and the cable volume down. The opposite way from how you have it now. This should resolve your issue.

I have an Apex Digital TV connected to a DirecTV DVR Plus receiver. Since the digital conversion, the volume is totally messed up. Most of the time, it is low except with most commercials which are...

Have you tried different sources? DVD or antenna? If it's low on either of these (antenna would be the better test because of the commercials) then it's the TV. If it's fine then ditch the dish and go with real cable TV, you will be happier anyway. Most digital TV's can use digital cable without the box if you don't use premium channels.

Mitsubishi Television - Model CS40507

I would replace the cable and connectors to include the wall plate and connectors on both sides of it as well if this is duplicated on another set at the same location. If it is not some TV's will allow you to use both sides of the port. Most however have a side for digital and a side for analog signal and some will not allow the use of both sides.
Hope this helps you.

My Sony tv CRT

If it's between 5-10 secs, that's normal. You will turn the tv on and hear a loud (buzz/hum) that is the picture tube firing up, once it's fired up, it has a few more seconds until your picture comes up fully. That is about 5-10 secs from pushing the power button.

If it's taking longer than that, your picture tube may be going out.

I had a 36XBR250 and it took about 10 secs to fire up and show a picture, and it was 5 1/2 years old.

Sci Atlanta 8300 DVR HD sound in HD channels soft - analog channels OK

Experience has shown that with this relatively new mode of transmission, audio levels can be quite dynamic. If your set provides it, you may try turning on "Audio Compress" or whatever the name might be. Could also be called Dynamic audio also or some such. Reason for all the hubbub is that along with HD, mixing engineers are also providing the most range for the audio dynamics as well the most video composition info in the new broadcasts...Accordianman.
