Question about Audio Players & Recorders
A few days ago the speakers started making a terrible noise. Sounded like screaching and a lot of bass. OUT OF THE BLUE. Now the thing won't turn on. I've unplugged it for a few min. but when i plug it back in the standby light blinks kinda fast. We dont turn it off when we go to bed we just turn the tv off. It must have shut itself off during the night.
There is a capacitor on the power supply that has gone bad, it is a 1000 mf 16v cap and you will notice the top is bulged up a little bit. there are three in a row and this is the center one. Radio shack replacement part for $1.73 and you are back in business. Tim

Many other users reporting the same problem using different description. Mine was doing this same thing and now just sits there and buzzes until I press the power button and then it's quiet for a few seconds. I've taken my power supply loose, but there isn't anything obviously wrong and is more than likely a $3 part like a capacitor that has gone dry.
There is a user "meelous" that said he had a fix for this, but he hasn't responded yet. Look at the other posts using the HTS3400 and watch for a real solution, other than throwing it away and doing without.
