Question about Teac AG-370 Receiver

1 Answer

Buzzing Sound At all times, even if nothing is playing on the CD player or any other input device, there is a constant buzz playing over the speakers.

    Let me clarify some more. The receiver buzzes through the left channel only on both A and B speakers. The buzz is always at a constant volume. It happens even when the receiver is at zero volume and when the balance is on 100% right channel. I have tried multiple speakers and have tried detaching all of the input devices. Changing from CD to FM to Phono does not even make the buzz skip a beat. The only ways to stop it is to turn off the speakers or the receiver itself.

You've got a fried output transistor or one of the small preamp transistors that feed the output on the left channel. Both of these transistors are after the volumn control so it would have no effect on the buzz. Good luck.

I heard a loud pop and now nothing is playing through it-no sound on any of the inputs. ive only had it 2 years

Dude mine died a week ago heard this constant buzzing sound wouldn't connect to anything then litterally lost all power it is now a beautiful paper weight. contacted the vendor told me if I didn't have a receipt I was S.O.L ... And everyone that owns one knows it's plagued with issues. For me it was serious connectivity issues right out of the box I had to buy a Logitech Bluetooth receiver to even connect to the thing which is 12' from the source... It would be nice if the vendor would help people that invested 400.00 in their speaker with the expectation that it would an investment

I have a Dell W3706MH tv monitor and the sound just stop working. I unplugged the speakers and plugged them back in still no sound. I unplugged them because it was making a loud buzzing and popping noise...

If possible, plug the speakers into a portable device such as a cell phone, portable cd player or a tv that is equipped with a headphone jack (if speakers have the jack). If not, if the speakers have the red and white, ref and black or black and white male end connectors, plug them into a tv or dvd\blue ray player. If you get sound they are good, and you need to adjust your sound options on your computer. Let me know if this helps\works. Also, not all speakers are compatible with all computers and must have the same sound level equivalence to the device they are being used with. i.e. Ohms etc.

There is always a buzzing sound come from my spekaers when i pluged in computer

Try to attach your speakers to another device, DVD player, Amp., Receiver, etc. and if the buzz is not there; then you know the problem is with the computer. Check the inputs and be certain they are clean and make perfect contact with the plug ends. If contact is positive; and the sound still has a buzz; you are experiencing line noise that requires a software fix. Down load Divx or some other application and see if that works without distortion? Match up the color of the plugs to the color of the input on the sound section of your computer. If they are incoorect, you can experience a problem there as well.

Behringer Xenyx 502 Mic buzzing...PLEASE HELP

Get yourself anti-static spray and spray over the connector before inserting into the jack, most times its dust or static buildup which causes that buzzing sound and in other times replace your mic

I have a music chair and wen i turn it on the speckers make a loud bzzzzzz sound. like if they were on, and they stay on

This usually signifies a problem with the audio connection.

If it makes it without anything plugged into it at all, not even cables connecting to nothing, then that is likely a problem, but if it stops after you plug your MP3 player or whatever other sound input you have then you are fine. However if it always buzzes, if somethings plugged in or not, that is a big problem and you should try to return it.

If it does not make the buzzing sound while nothing is plugged in, then it is likely not a big problem. Check that the cable from your input device to the chair is firmly and securely plugged in on both sides, and that it is not damaged in any way. If you have a spare of the same cable lying around, try it out. Also, make sure you are using the exactly right kind of cable that is required, and make sure it's going into exactly where it should go.

It may have to do with the position and surface that your input device is on. It sounds really strange, but from personal experience, this is usually the cause of buzzing for me. Experiment with where you place your input device. Try holding it, placing it on the floor, on a table, on a shelf, etc. while plugged in and see if the buzzing gets louder/softer or changes in pitch.

When I play a CD I get a buzzing sound. The sound starts as soon as I hit the play button (and before the CD is actually moving.) It gets louder once the CD starts playing. The sound is coming through...

Buzzing is usally AC line noise leaking into an un-shielded cable somewhere or a floating ground. If the AC plug is reversible, try that. Sometimes the buzz is from an attached device. Make sure all audio cables are plugged in tightly at each end and routed away from or at right angles to any power cords and away from other sources of strong magnetic fields like TV's. I've also seen variable track lights induce noise but it's usually minor.

Re: Sony 771 ... constant buzzing sound in background

Sounds like feedback. Check your speaker connections at the speaker and the main unit.

Buzzing emitted by vsx-409

Could be the result of having DTS compatible equipment connected through the analog inputs on the VSX-409D. Noise and distortion will result as essentially the DTS signal is being played back undecoded. If this is the case you'll have to connect your LD or CD player through the digital connections (coax or optical) and set 'Signal Select' (button on front) to 'Digital'.

Sound card broken? No normal sound and a constant buzz...

Sounds like you tried everything possible. Based on what you have stated that you tried already I would agree with your diagnosis of a bad sound card.
If this was my Laptop I would be looking for a nice set of USB speakers and Microphone or a headset.
You can either keep the speakers turned down or you may be able to disable the onboard sound through a BIOS setting.

Or even better. Here is a USB sound card with speaker and microphone jacks. Pretty Cheap too.
