Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Switch Noise I have had this unit since 2004, no problems until now. For some reason now when I change functions or effects either directly or with the remote there is a loud accompanying bass buzz/bang (circa 1 sec). This occurs on all functions, DVD, TV and Tuner playback. I haven't changed the settings and have not introduced any new components into the set-up or the vicinity. I wondered whether this was a common problem associated with audio equipment of this kind/age and whether there is a known-solution OR if this is just due to the age of the components and I should look to replace the unit (although 4 years old seems a bit soon). Any suggestions gratefully received. Many thanks!

    The Unit is a Yamaha AV Receiver RX-V440RDS (6.1 Channel AV Home Theater Amp)

    I will try moving it as suggested, however, I fear it is more likely to be a faulty IC or transistor as I haven't introduced any new power items locally. As I'm not knowledgeable in this area I will have to compare cost of repair versus purchasing a newer unit. Thanks

Try moving the unit away from power sources, for examples power adapters etc. The noise it is probably because of a faulty transistor or IC in the AMP section of the device.
To fix this you need to take unit apart and test components on the Amp area of the board, as this happens with all devices it is the final amp section having troubles.
Strange thing that device restart normally after this.

Its time for you to seek a certified service personal as this sounds like a seal system issue. If the compressor is running and the fan are running, its possible you lost the freon charge and it will need to be confirmed. Most unit are repairable but will cost to do this. If you have any dislikes about this unit, its time to consider the replacement of this unit. If the size and features are your reason for this unit to survive this can be done. Rough estimate could run 800 or so. This estimate is base on the unknowns and untested possible issues. This could be cheaper but with out testing the reason I can only guess. I hope this helps.

I have a 2004 kia how do i know if the ignition switch is bad or going bad

Have it tested

If your working on a vehicle problem, you need a reason
to go & test the ignition switch

That reason comes from looking at & studying wiring diagrams
for a system problem & seeing the relationship or cause & effect,
that part has to your problem,basically lack of voltage not going
somewhere & controlled by the ignition switch

Testing can be done at a distance from the switch, depending on what info your gathering off the diagrams & confirming what works
& what doesn't

How to replace a hazard switch in 2004 olds alero

I know in 2004 models, The multi-function switch is in your steering wheel. It's the signal stalk and wiper stalk. It's a one piece unit.

If you take off the top half of the steering column cover, you can access the connection for the switch. Unplug it and see if the noise continues.

Loud popping and static-vol ctrl has no effect on noise

Bose will not release their schematics or parts lists, effectively giving them a monopoly on repair of their units. If you check their web site,, you'll find that they will repair your unit for $100 or possibly give you $200 credit towards a new model. Before you take them up on either offer, you might want to check out the new lines of HD radios. Better souind quality, MUCH lower prices than a Bose.
