Question about Olevia LT37HVS 37 in. LCD HDTV

Loud static blasts

Periodically, and for no apparent reason, my 37" Olevia HDTV will emit a LOUD buzz, or static blast (the only way I can describe it). If I am away from the room, I'll have to run back and turn the set off, then turn it back on to stop it. After that, it will usually perform well, however we can't leave the house with the TV on for fear that this frighteningly loud noise may result in an explosion or something worse. It can actually be quite unsettling

    Since I have no external speakers connected to the set, I'm assuming, possibly incorrectly, that the emanate from the internak speakers. When I turn the TV off and immediately turn it back on, it works fine until I finally turn it off for the evening.

    I have no idea what a "LOT" unit is.

    I am assuming that since the volume of the sound is grossly disproportionate to the prevailing speaker volume at the time, that maybe it isn't being broadcast over the internal speakers.

My FStar TV does the same thing. Functions fine for a few hours and then blasts out a very loud medium to high pitch squeal, sometimes as loud as an air-horn. Happens on all inputs and the sound is far louder than the loudest volume I thought my TV speakers were capable of generating. It lasts about 7 seconds. I also have 7 second periods where there's no volume at all. I think it's a bad power supply or the electrolytic capacitor. As an electrolytic capacitor ages, its capacitance usually decreases and its equivalent series resistance (ESR) usually increases. The capacitance may abnormally degrade to as low as 4% of the original value, as opposed to an expected 50% capacity degradation over the normal life span of the component. When this happens, the capacitors no longer adequately serve their purpose of filtering the direct current voltages on the motherboard, and a result of this failure is an increase in the ripple voltage that the capacitor is supposed to filter out. This results in a system instability.

Static noise can come from a number of places. The key is to try and find a pattern to when it occurs. Does it only happen after the unit has been on for a while? Is the set still under warranty? DO NOT open it up if the warranty is still valid. Since the problem seems to come and go, it suggests either a heat or connection problem. Given the signal levels inside the set, connection problems can occur and result in many types of problems. Try to post the following info and we should be able to help further:
1) Look for a pattern of when it occurs.
2) Does the set work for a while even right after a power cycle to clear the initial problem or does it occur again right away?

Thanks,
Dan

    Thanks for the update. The next step is to determine whether or not the sound is coming from the speakers. I suspect that it is. Bad coupling capacitors in the audio path can cause this. This is important: is the set under warranty? If so, return it for warranty repair. If not, we'll need to start looking at hte audio path. Are you comfortable working inside the set? Are tyou familiar with electronics?

Bose Wave Radio, Model AWR1-1W When turned on radio emits a loud buzz and no other sound. Pushing tuning, volume, and aux buttons has no effect. Is this fixable? If so, how?


Loud buzz is usually caused by static and radio interference in radios. If none of this is affecting you unit presently there there is a probability that some cables which aid the fm antenna in receiving stations this could act as static which brings about the buzz on the unit. Either way it is caused by interference on the fm receiver end and all you have to do is get that serviced and the problem is solved.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

Loud buzzing sound began on start up


It could be several things but the most likely are: Something is spinning around with the motor shaft. Unplug the motor and "blast" water through the vent holes to clear debris. Let it dry completely before returning to service. Something could be caught in the impeller. Remove the front end and check. Squeals, loud hums, heat and vibration are indications of bad bearings.

How do I fix bad static? Dell W3706MC 37 in. HDTV LCD has been fine and suddenly the sound has loud static on all sources. Is this a sound circuit failure?


Yes,loud static usually comes from bad isolation of sound signal path so it's probably a frayed cable or a loose jack. Or if you're unlucky some parts inside have failed.

Loud buzzing noise with Whirpool microwave oven when it comes on. All lights, heating and fan seems to work but not sure why loud buzzing. What is the problem?


The loud buzzing you hear is the sound of the magnatron tube.That is what emits the microwave radiation and buzzing should be normal. The mag tube may be nearing its end at witch time you will hear no buzzing and hence no heating of foods. Replacement can be costly depending on the model so most people just opt for a new one. Hope this helps

EMac sound will randomly go to FULL BLAST


If you don't get it fixed, try hooking up external speakers. The external speakers have a hardware switch that prevents it completely from going to the built-in speakers.

Olevia 37 turning off for no particular reason


I suspect that the main power supply is trying to self-destruct; what you describe could be the switching power supply struggling to stay up and running. It isn't the cable company's problem.
FYI: Olevia has declared bankruptcy so you may not be able to get any help from them.
