In nearly all cases buzzing on audio equipment is caused by faulty leads or having leads in close proximity to EMF sources. Remove all the input and output leads, does the it still buzz. Connect the speaker leads, does it still buzz? Then connect the input leads one at a time. This should pinpoint where the problem is. If you find a faulty lead, swap it out for another, new quality lead that is shielded. Others have the same problem :>(

SOURCE: can't increase & decrease the volume

Double check your connections. Still not working fine. Remove the input jack connector and try to touch or hold the tip of the connector, also adjust the volume of the speaker, you should heard loudly the 60 hertz sound of your body signal. Otherwise you have a defective amplifier in the speaker system.

SOURCE: Vizio speakers make a buzzing noise

It's not the speakers. I usually hear of this problem when hooked up to an HD cable box. You can adjust the volume on the cable box and also on the TV. I'll bet you don't have this problem when watching a DVD.

If the problem is what I think it is, your HD Cable box is set at a really low volume while your TV is set to a rather high volume. Try setting the TV volume to around one-third, then set the volume on the cable box until it's as loud as you'd ever want to hear it. With the TV at such a high volume, you're actually amplifying any stray electronic signals that the wires might be picking up, and the above solution will fix that.

Good Luck.

The audio board on your 47" Vizio has gone bad. Replace that board will fix the problem.

SOURCE: Subwoofer Emits a Buzzing Tone

The 2200 uF capacitor in the power supply has gone bad and the humming is a 60 Hz from the rectification of AC to 18 vDC.  Either get a new power supply or take apart the power supply and replace the bad cap.

Arcam repair


Maybe a firmware (that's the running program) problem I'd contact Arcam, if your Solo has a USB input they should be able to send you a firmware update which you can download to a USB stick and then upload to the Solo (instructions will be in the manual). If not your local Arcam dealer should be able to do it for you Arcam warranties are 3 to 5 years. Don't now if they'll edit this but also try AV Forums online. good luck

Arcam AVR200. Buzzing sounds in all 5.1 speakers. Gets louder as volume is turned up. Tried all sorts of different things - different power source, 1 speaker, different modes.


I had the same problem. I was told by a sales guy at a high end audio store that I should try using a 3-Prong To 2-Prong Adapter. I went and bought one. I plugged it in and no more buzzing.

you can find them at HomeDepot, Lowes or dollor store.11_25_2012_6_28_23_pm.jpg

Arcam avr 300 keeps switching off intermitently, and the red standby light flashes.


I wonder if anyone can help explain what the likely problem will be with my Arcam AV300 amp. Whilst watching TV for no particular reason an extremely loud (what i can only describe as feedback) sound comes out of my B & W speakers for approximately 3 seconds, then silence as the Arcam switches off, I’m then unable to switch it back on for a period of time, (this varies between 5minutes to a few hours) when it eventually switches back on everything seems to be working perfectly. This has happened quite a number of times although it’s intermittent & occurring every 1 - 6 weeks.

Washing machine will not start wash - just beeps - key on display


Press and hold the Rinse Plus button and wait for the washer to start emitting a tone.

Whilst you are pressing and holding the Rinse Plus button, the tone increases in volume from low to high and then it briefly goes silent, before it starts over agian.

If you release the Rinse Plus button immediately the tone goes silent, then this will turn off the beeping.

If you don't release the Rinse Plus button in time, just continue to press and hold the button and the tone will cycle around again from low to high to silent.

Hope that helps.

Arcam avr300 intermittent problems


I had this same problem with my Arcam AVR300. I ended up shipping mine to an Arcam repair center and they repaired it and shipped it back for under $200. The problems were cracked connection on the start relay and they replaced power supply diodes. Very well worth it and now I can enjoy it again!
