Humming Noise My Digital Lifestyles television is making a humming noise, that goes away only if you put the tv on mute. The noise did not start until we moved the tv to a different room. The manual is no help.

    I have the exact same problem with my 42 inch digital lifestyle television.

  • mlbgreene Oct 24, 2008

    I have the same problem. My original television arrived and hummed to the point that I couldn't watch the television ... it was very annoying. Since it was under warranty, I sent it back and they replaced it with another one. The second unit has exactly the same problem, but worse. Corion tells me that I just have to learn to "turn it out" while I'm watching television. WHAT???????

    I have the same problem and it is driving me nuts!

    Worst investment I ever made. It has been replaced 3 times and the humming is worse then ever. HSN refuses to refund my money even though we returned the first television for replacement within 30 days. I have had to sit home waiting for fedx pick ups and delieverys 6 times! Not to mention my husband breaking his back to get it on and off the wall mount. HSN washed their hands of it quoting their 30 day return policy so it is in dispute with my credit card company. We have replaced all the cables, the DVR box too and nothing helps. Any other suggestions please let me know!

I am so happy to announce that I just solved this problem (no need to return the tv - ugh). I went on and bought a Zenith Digital TV Tuner Converter Box - just got it and plugged the Cable (Comcast) into the "Tuner Converter Box" and then the cable that comes out of the tuner box into the back of the TV. There is a very slight sound still eminating from the tv but it is much better and definitely livable...

I've heard this could be a mismatch of volume, if you have a cable box with a volume setting. The cable volume could be too high.

Lg tv humming noise when tv is on

The humming noise is most likely coming from the power supply.

If the unit is worth the repair cost ( Over $100.00 ) you should have it repaired.

If not, deal with the noise until it goes out.

Humming or squealing noise when tv is turned on (model 32LG30)

Be sure you have installed the stand scresw weather or not you are using the stand.
The back panel can vibrate without the screws.

Other sources of a hum are the coils on the power supply.
The power supply would have to be replaced to solve the issue.

Humming noise through Tv speakers. Goes away if I mute sound?

If the noise is coming in through the onboard tuner then repair may the only option. If you have a DVD or VCR and can connect the line level inputs (look like stereo connections) then do so and use that input, if the sound persists there then it is likely the audio circuitry - also a repair item.
Bypassing the TV sound system involves connecting your cable box, DVD or VCR (using the tuner from that unit select channels) audio output to a stereo system and then the TV becomes a big monitor (picture only)

Hum in the audio - 32'' Proscan 1080i

does the hum occur when playing a dvd or only when watching tv ? if the hum occurs only when watching tv, i would like you to disconnect the cable line from either the wall or the back of the cable box and see if this hum disappears. if the hum disappears call your cable company. you have what is called a " 60 cycle ground loop ". hope this helps.

More often than not, the humming sound on any electronic device is brought about by the AC side of the power supply not only of the device itself but also all other equipment it is attached to. In your particular case, it maybe introduced into the system from:
  • (coaxial) cable TV leadin;
  • connections of DVD, VCR, game consoles and others;
  • electrical noise from lamp dimmers, lights with electronic ballasts, wireless phones.
It is interesting to note, that the noise could be from other appliances plug in the same circuit as the TV, you of course could try plugging it into another outlet or branch. In some instances, you could even try filtered regulators similar to those used by desktop computers.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Sporadic Hum on HLP4663W

I would guess that its the fan for the lamp, as the color wheel will power down as soon as the power is cut. the cooling fans will continue to run

Zenith C27V22 27" TV loud humming noise

There is a coil in the set with a magnet glued to it, called the horizontal linearity coil. Sometimes the coil "sings", making a squeeling sound. I have seen this many times, and there really isnt anything actually electrically wrong with the set. To stop the squeeling the coil should be replaced.

SanyoDS25390 Tv good picture buzzing noise

What are you using as a source? If its a cable/satallite box, double check that first. If its a video input or a scart input, swap out the cables. If it still there you could have an input problem or a filter capacitor going bad. Does the hum get louder with sound? If it does it is an input source and or cables. Good luck Ps please dont forget to rate this thread.
