Hi,

As you posted/described, internal work had been done at the factory then perhaps the source/cause of the AC hum is external.

If the unit is being used as a base with a regulated power supply, then the power supply has to be checked. This would include the big capacitor, the diodes and the regulator transistors. On certain occasions, loose transformer E core can also cause the hum.

There are also instances that other electrical devices can cause the hum, these can include fluorescent lamps, air purifiers, dehumidifiers and others.

In some cases, it can be loose grounding of the antenna mount or the braided/shield wire solder to the PL-250 connectors.

If it were mobile, then the antenna grounding is also a possibility. If the hum is higher than 60Hz and goes with the engine RPM, then the alternator of the vehicle has to be checked.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

The Hum that you hear is most likely the AC drawing in too much power, or it went bad, in any case, here are a few things you can try to reduce the hum you hear. Try switching the NB/ANL switch on, this will cause external interference to dicipate. Or try replacing the unit's power supply, this could affect the performance in a positive or a negative way depending on the quality of the AC component that you buy. Or you can try cooling fans, the cooling fans will allow more air flow to the unit so it can stay cool, the cause of the hum may be coming from the AC because it is overheating, keep the radio cooled for higher performance. The most drastic thing you can do is use a votage step-down adapter. The voltage step-down adapter reduces the amount of power that is supplied to the radio which in turn may cause the hum to be reduced, however the radio's range and power are also reduced dramatically.

Hope this helps!

How do you pair bluetooth wireless headset to a 2016 UHD series 6 Samsung TV?


Tip & How-To about Miscellaneous
Pairing Bluetooth Devices Posters often ask "How do I pair my Bluetooth ???" Insert whatever device you have at the question marks.

Generally, you need to read the instructions for the camera, headset, speakers or whatever the Bluetooth device is.

Roughly speaking though.

Settings - Bluetooth - Search, on the Android, iPhone, Windows phone, Smart Television, whatever.

With camera, speaker, headphones or whatever the Bluetooth device is, you have to press a button on that device to send out the signal. On my Bowers and Wilkins T6 Speakers, there is a button on the top with the Bluetooth symbol on it. This is the part people usually don't do and ask for advice, thinking it will do this automatically.

When the Android device recognises it, click Pair, and if it asks for a code, the Default is '0000', (four zeros, no quotes).

Why does the myzone headset we purchased not work, as the red light will not turn on?


Not sure how old this unit is but you need to check your battery connections for crud.

If the battery's have been leaking or the terminals are corroded it will not power up. I beleave that unit takes rechargeable batterys.

Blackberry 8100 bluetooth pairing problem


after you have paired the two devices... the blackberry that is receiving the file has to be in receiving mode.

Go to MEDIA or music icon on your handheld where all of your tones are, hit the menu key and choose "receive using bluetooth" then hit send on the other handheld.

and there ya go !!!

its just another added security feature by RIM to avoid unwanted stuff being transferred .
