Could be feed back from the drum assy(video head) going bad. Make sure that the 2 devices, your tv and camcorders audio are in sync by turning the audio all the way up on the camcorder and then turning your tvs audio up as loud as youll listen to it then backing the audio down with the camcorders controls. If that doesnt get it then your video head may be going bad. I hope this helps.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I tried it and here's what happened: the hum did not disappear when I turned the camcorder volume down. It did disappear when I turned the tv volume down. Does this mean the video heads are bad?

    I should mention that the hum is not there when I view the video directly on the camera.

TV plays fine when dvd recorder is off. As soon as you turn on recorder the picture gets snowy. It doesn't matter whether it is on video 1 or on the channel setting. I have changed all the cables, still...


It seems that you are keeping the recorder close to the TV set resulting distortion in the picture due to power supply hum,check by keeping it away from set if no change than check the reason of hum received from power supply of recorder by replacing electrolytic capacitors for leakage or proper shielding of power supply in side the recorder.

My television has an annoying hum/buz when annimated movies are playing. The intensity of the hum/buzz varies as the brightness of the tv image changes. What is the problem?


This is waht is known as vision on sound.
Sharp bright edges on the picture such as seen on cartoons, generates high frequency interference which is picked by the sound channel. That is why you get louder infererence when the picture is brighter. There are filters built in to the sound circuits to reduce this. Intensity of the problem depends on the quality of the design.
You could try reducing the contrast level some time called "picture" or if you have a sharpness control reduce sharpness.

We have sound but no picture i have sound but no picture. when you change inputs the word input is doubled up and distorted


There were not much info in the manual but it did suggest trying this.
1st- Unplug for a few minutes and then plug it back in. Or use the reset button look it up in the manual. MANUAL

2nd- Blank screen troubleshooting

• If you're trying to watch TV, change channels or press the ANTENNA button to switch tuners.
• If you're trying to watch something that's playing on a component connected to the TV (like a DVD or a VCR tape), press the TV
button on the remote, then press INPUT until you get to the correct video input channel.
• If you're trying to watch a component (like your DVD player or VCR), make sure the component connected to the TV is turned on.
• If you're trying to watch a component (like your DVD player or VCR), make sure the component is connected correctly.

Post back if non of these ideas work and explain if there are any lights flashing or changing colors on the front where the green light usually is. A fixya rating would be appreciated, thank you for stopping by Fixya!

Toshiba 56HM195 56 in HD DLP Loud Buzzing and color distortion


If the sound, sounds more like a Hum with some vibration chances are the Cooling fan located behind the lamp is going bad, about $20 to repair, if its a high pitch hum most likely the Color Wheel and if thats the case about $30.
Good luck, my fan just went bad now seeing green dots everywhere, so debating on just junking it out or fixing it, with winter coming on might just breakdown and buy LCD and say the heck with DLP from now on.
Good luck to you..
