HUMM in phone line(modem)

HP Pavilion dv1040us........Started with slight humm in phone line, which continued to get louder to point that modem was unable to connect with service provider and produced a loud humm in the audio. Notebook works fine with 56K PC card modem,or mobile phone tools through USB port, will not work with notebook dsl or phone plugs. Suspect bad solder joint or damaged component part from lightning surge through phone line ???

Without hearing it I can't say for sure. Did you recently get a new set of tires with some aggressive tread? Some Mud Terrain tires will humm when driving.

But my guess would be that you probably have a bad wheel bearing. If it is the wheel bearing, it is something that should be taken care of Right Away.

Hope this helps.

Audio humm on VIZIO VW32LHDT30A

You have a bad ground through the cable box or cable system. This causes AC to leak into the TV showing up as bars that roll from bottom to top and sometimes audible as well. Have the cable company replace the cable box and/or check out for proper grounding outside at the demarcation point.

PC Grounding Problem

This ground loop isolator from Radio Shack was suggested when I did a search:

It says it has the 1/8 jack adapter, so it should plug right in!

I'd be curious to hear about the results if you try it.

Good Luck!

Loud humm. I have to keep the volume down when watching the TV.

A humm may be caused by a cable TV grounding problem called a "ground loop." Basically, the grounding for the Cable TV line and the power outlet for the TV are at unequal levels. I had this same humm with both the internal TV speakers and with external speakers (headphones, etc.). The 2 solutions are (1) install a Ground Loop Isolator at the TV, or (2) call the cable company to troubleshoot the problem. I figured the time I saved dealing with the cable company was worth the $50 for the part. I installed the Jensen VRD-1FF which has worked perfectly! Ordered from eBay and saved about $12 over the Jensen Electronics web site price. Hope this helps.

Microwave no heat

The "HUMM" indicates a breakdown in the High Voltage Side. The loud "POP" was the breakdown. You have only four Components in the High Voltage side.

1. High Voltage Transformer. You can eliminate this as the problem. Why? If it was the problem it would have blown the line fuse, and would have given off a burned transformer smell.
2. High Voltage Diode. Usually will Burn or Pop when shorted, but will then OPEN the Circuit and there is no "HUMM".
3. High Voltage Capacitor.This is the Silver Can with the two terminals on top. It can SHORT internaly between the plates (the two terminals) and give the "HUMM".
4. Magnetron. This is my number one suspect. A SHORTED Magnetron.
