I had the same problem with my Icebox. Orange light is on and humming sound is coming from speakers. Icebox dealer (www.lordantech.com) that sold me this unit fixed the motherboard and it is working again.

Hello,if your computer is old and the noise is low frequency but very disturbing and sometimes gets louder and then lows then is your power supply and you must change it.If the noise is more high pitch and it doesn't change frequency then should be the graphic card.If its like scratching noise is the hard drive.You must figure out exactly where the noise is coming from before replace anything

Re: Boston digital BA735. Hum with or without input signal.


Hmmm I just got the same problem. They worked fine on my old Dell desktop but when I plugged them in to my son's old Dell PC (maybe 1 year newer than my old one) they all hum like crazy - as you say even if it's just the power plugged in and nothing else. Yes it does have the original power supply. I get no music (but still it hums) from digital out/in but when I switch to analog out/in I hear the music and it still hums, plus the sound is distorted. Wierd.

Mine has the same problem, orange LED with humming sound coming from the speakers etc.


Someone brought one to me to look at..same problem. Checked power supply (easy to check, take off bottom cover and measure voltages on connector. standard 5, 3.3, and 12v outputs going to maine board.) Power supply was fine. took out main board and noticed several 100uf,16v caps that seemed to be bloated. replaced them and the unit turns on. Only thing i'm not sure about is the time it takes to initially turn on. when you first turn on main switch in back, the front led flashes green for about a minute then the LCD comes on and says "loading" which takes about 2-3 minutes, then the unit goes into standby mode (red Led) the unit will turn right on and off again quickly as long as the main switch in the back is not turned off and on again. Is it normal for it to intially take so long to boot? I do not know the normal operation as this is the first i attempted to repair.
