Scratchy noise So for some reason from one usage to another, my "main mix out" make a funny scratcy noise kinda like interference...and it's very annoying, so I had to resort to using "control RMout" as my main output which switches my "volume" control to the control RM knob, and i've been using "main mix out" for my bass, but I've been forced to keep the volume low so that people won't hear it... any suggestions?

you can go to radioshack and get TV TUNER CLEANER, spray it into that troublesome potentiometer amd cycle it while off several times and then try it again. If not the potentiometer may have to be replaced but I believe radioshack may have one thats a near perfect replacement. hope that helps

One of my speakers is making a scratching noise when both the positive and negative leads are plugged in. both the cabinet and amplifier are parallel. I've cleaned the whole thing in and out and it's still...

having only one speaker that sounds scracthy tells me that one or more of your drivers are blown, the tweeter, midrange or full range drivers (speakers). have you swapped the leads @ the amplifier to see if the scratchy sound moves to the other speaker? if it does, your problem starts before in the pre-amp stage. if it is the same speaker you can isolate the problem by swapping indiviual drivers with the good speaker, or you can cover individual drivers to determine where the scratcy sound is coming from. it could be the surround ( the rubber or butyl material that attaches the cone to the frame) is rotted from age. which can be replaced

Distorted, scratchy sound with Toshiba Satellite

OK, I would restore or recover the computer to manufacturer's original specifications and automatic update to the latest sp3.

Then, I would reinstall your virus protection and see if it's better.

Scratchy radio volume dial

Use an electronic contact cleaner. You need to shoot it inside the pot through the openings. Then rotate many times. This will remove oxidation on the contacts inside. If you don't use a contact cleaner, turn of f the radio and rotate many times the potentiomer left-right-left-right ...When you turn it on again, you will see the scratcy sound will be reduced but it will come back eventually. The more often you rotate, the less noise it will make. This is a very common problem, nothing to worry about.

Kitchenaid dishwasher making funny noises while running

HI. this sounds like a busted impeller in the pump housing. there are two impellers. one for the wash and one for the drain. the drive shaft will strip the impeller center nut, causing this noise. I would inspect the pump housing for lose impeller action. replace the faulty impeller if found to be damaged.
