Question about Aiwa XR-M55 Shelf System

1 Answer

Noisy transformer after about 10 mins use, my XR-m55 has a terrible buzzing noise coming from the main(big) transformer/powersupply, it would appear I'm not the only one with this problem. Is there an easy fix without replacing the transformer? If not what are the specs for the transformer so i can buy a new one.

Panasonic TX-P50G20B how do I fix a buzzing noise coming from the central circuit board on the back of the tv


Buzzing noises come from transformers.. use a plastic pen to push down on each transformer in turn to find which one it is, then replace it.
no end of glue or resin or anything can stop the buzzing so just replace it..
good luck !

Peavey XR 122D powered mixer developing hum noise dispite pressing the noise filter. anything more to be worth doing?


Hello,

I need a bit more information but from what i can tell it's about the power supply capacitors issue, as this devices are known to develop such kind of humming annoying noise when they go under the specified value, let me know further,
Regards.

Hello why do I have a loud buzzing noise coming from my umc combination 21 inch television so bad you cannot here program dialogue ?


You need to send your TV Model first, but in general any strange sounds in a TV come from the followings:
1- High ripple in the power supply of the sound card.
2- Bad polarized capacitors in the sound card
3- High noise in the main power supply (SMPS)
4- For CRT tv, weak insulation of the Line Transformer
5- An external source near your TV set which is picked by your TV and amplified.

I have a proscan 42LA45H 42 in television that has started making a buzzing noise from the back. What is causing this, and what do I need to do to fix.


Hi
If picture and sound is Ok, and only this buzzing sound is heard from the back of the TV, It should be due to core soose of some ferrite cored transformers inside, especially to the power supply regulator board of the TV. Open the back cover of the TV and swtich it ON. Listeen very carefully which transfromer makes the buzzing noise. Just trouch and press the core of the transformer suspected with some non-cunductive material like glass rod, or a stick of dry wood. You can identify the transformer that makes noise by this way. After identifying the exact transformer; switch OFF the set, unplug it from mains socket, apply some "Super Glue" like fast boanding glue to the joint of core of that transformer. Allow sometime for the glue to set. This will solve the buzzing sound problem of your TV. OK

The "Buzzing" may come from the fans.
There are fans in the powersupply, on the CPU, in the front.

It could be a faulty:
- powersupply
- motherboard

Bugera 333xl every few seconds there is a loud buzzing. from


It looks as though you have ripple noise that amplifies into the output. First of all check if the mains voltage is going down to produce the low voltage hum. If not you will have to check the DC filter capacitors , couple in parallel to confirm the capacitor. IF the buzz is still coming through then you will have to isolate the preamp and wait it the fault is coming in. If not connect the preamp output to another amp to hear the same buzz to confirm the preamp to be faulty. If so you will have to trace by a voltage check when the buzz occurs to confirm if the preamp IC or the selector Ic is faulty. Some logic IC's can also produce this noise on static switching. If teh noise is appearing on both the channels, then I would still bet on the power section. So check once again on the rectifier/ regulators and capacitors. Hope this advice helps. Good day

A couple of weeks after initial setup of my brand new Onkyo XT-SR606 receiver, I noticed a loud buzzing noise that starts up approximately 10 min after the receiver is turned on. The buzzing is definitely...


The "buzz" you hear is a power hum made by the power supply transformer. It's technically called "Lamination hum" caused by the revering of electrical current through the power supply transformer. In some cases the hum can vibrate the chassis causing other loose material to vibrate. If you can, go to your dealer and check to see if other units of this same type typically make a hum this loud, and if not, see if he can solve the problem for you.

Buzz in amplifier power transformer. The amp is a Marantz Model 240. It functions perfectly well, and there's no noise from it in the speakers, but the transformer buzzes whenever the unit is plugged in...


All transformers buzz though you cannot hear it normally. The big transformers on power lines like to buzz for all to hear. When a transformer in a stereo amp gets old and deteriorates or gets hot and  expands the coils, melts the coil varnish and epoxy coatings then rattles at 60 times per second.    You can ignore it or change the transformer. There are too many layers of windings to try to stick anything in there.  Disconnecting a transformer results in inductive kickback -that's not money. It's a big, whopping electrical gotcha! Be careful! Good luck, Steve Medley
