Hi hodges_ed,
This symptoms indicated of internal problem in the unit itself if the static sound is present in all inputs.
The is caused by the following reasons :
> Faulty power supply - once there an out-of-regulation condition on the power supply feeding the audio circuitry, static sound will produced to the speakers. This is commonly caused of leaky/dried filter capacitor. Leaky capacitor has a physical indication of fault like bulged/dome at the top or in the bottom and can easily identified. Dried capacitor has no physical indication of fault, you must have a capacitor checker to determine its condition.
> Faulty audio circuitry - Once the sound IC has a faulty internal circuitry, same symptom will produced. This is considered partially faulty and needs replacement. Another reasons is the faulty coupling/bias electrolytic capacitor in this section.
This kind of symptom is not DIY and I would advice you to look for a qualified technician to troubleshoot the problem.
Hope I help you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

My 2005 Accord's radio / CD player will not produce sound to the speakers, the display panel works fine. Sometimes a loud static sound will come from the speakers with no volume control, powering off gets...


The sound chip may have gone in the stereo, especially if someone has had it on very loud they sometimes blow, otherwise you have 2 speaker wires touching each other, that way you only get static noise, insidee the door they sometimes come free and touch the body

Check all your speaker wires first.

I have the same problem with my 3 year old Dell 32 inch Tv


Yesterday I went to the pawn shop and purchased a Sony receiver they just got it in a couple a days (pawn shop) ago. The receiver is in great shape still had the stickers on them for less than 100.00. We hooked the speaker and the cords black/yellow/red to the in/out in back of the TV and the receiver. Wow! Great surround sound and the TV works like new. Please do not go and buy a sound board you will be wasting your money and the same thing will happen again and again. Dell sucks!

Scratching (static) noise coming from computer speakers


I foudn this in anther forum:
I have an ASUS motherboard P5E3 Premium. The audio that came with it was the Sound Max audio. I also noticed abnormal sounds coming from the speakers. They included sounds during hard drive activity and also with mouse movement. They were not loud but noticable. I searched all over the web but didn't find the answer. I stumbled across the fix myself. I also have vista-64. In the sound control panel > speaker properties > levels... there is a pc beep slide bar. I noticed that if it is disabled then the abnormal sound went away completely. Problem solved. Hope this helps.

The port locations do not seem to line up the same so I'm pretty sure they are not interchangeable
