High pitch noise from speakers


Hello there!
Sometimes High pitching its just that, static on the area, like if you are near a microwave, or near other electronic equipments, but, if the skreetching sound keep going or even if you do nothing it could be a line inside the sound card, or you need to clean the volume botton with special electrical cleaner. other that these, its contacts, or bad cap for the volume board inside.
Good Luck!

My Dell inspiron 13r laptop is emitting a very high pitched noise when it is on. I have tried reinstalling my audio drives but nothing seems to be working... Please help


If it is a relatively quiet, high pitched noise, it may not even be from your speakers. I've experienced a high pitched noise whenever i plug in my AC adapter to my PSP, so there is a chance it might be power related.

All my Dell power adapters are dying! I have 3 and none work now. The first one started saying it was not compatible, then the next one worked for a short period then the green light went out. I put one...


Yes! unfortunately it is, the reason why the power adapter has the high pitch noise is because the power supply is being loaded down by the motherboard, it may be due to the DC jack in the laptop or the charging circuits on the motherboard causing the problem. However there is one way to find out, remove the main battery to see if the high pitch noise goes away, if it does! it will prove where the problem is. It is also very possible that the battery is loading the whole circuitry, because it may have a high resistance short, enough to cook the power supply, I have seen this in very rare cases and is one for the books.

Hi, I have a Magnavox 17MD255V/17 combo dvd-tv. Everything works fine except that the AC adaptor has a high-pitched whistle that continues while the tv is on. I tried unplugging from the the tv itself and...


TAKE THE AC ADAPTER APART. LOOK AT WHERE THE MANUFACTURER PUT HIS GLUE AND REDO IT CLEAR NIAL POLISH WORKS BETTER IT FLOWS UNDER THE PARTS BETTER. YOU CAN PLUG IT ALL IN WHEN ITS APART BUT MAKE SURE NOTHING CAN SHORT OUT. THIS WAY YOU CAN PINPOINT WHERE THE NOISE IS COMING FROM. OTHERWISE GLUE THE TRANSFORMER AND ANY SMALL FERRITE BEADS THESE SWITCHED MODE POWER SUPPLIES OPERATE AT HIGH FREQUENCIES AND LOOS PARTS CAN VIBRATE CAUSING THIS NOISE.

High pitched noise red light blinking


A high pitch noise comes normally from blown capacitors from the motherboard or the power supply. But mostly high pitch noise comes from power supplies.

You could have to open up the power supply to see them.

Verify if it is the case and replace the faulty part.

Wont turn on and high pitch noise


Looks like the printers internal electrical components have gone. if there is a tranformer in your printer then that is making that noise. or else even the motors might also be gone.

my strong suggestion take it to any authorized service personnel

High Pitched whine when using line out with car power adapter


I was ready to mention the car's alternator but you say the noise is there if the ignition is on or off. What type voltage adapter are you using? It sounds as if it's the culprit. If it's an inverter I could understand the noise being generated. Have you tried earthing ALL the components involved? Earthing problems can cause some mighty weird things to happen.\ Are you sure nothing else in the car is switched on? eg. another radio or something with an inbuilt oscillator. Try running the power for the adapter straight from the battery and put a noise filter in line. Are you turning the engine off but leaving the ignition switched on? Doing this can cause a noise from the fuel pump. Oh and make sure the antenna is correctly earthed. Apart from that, I'm stumped BMW
