Buzzing noise I am gettin a buzzing noise (like a jet engine getting ready for take-off) part way thru listening to an MP3 download of talk readio. Everything will be fine and then all of a sudden this noise will start and I just rip off my earphones before I go deaf. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks!!!

    Thanks so much!!! That seems to have worked and I made it thru my workout w/o a problem. (Although I felt like a Pavlov experiment waiting any moment for the annoying buzz to start!). I have a new player and newly purchased headphones and have just started to use them. I really appreciate your super fast response - I was amazed at receiving a suggestion so quickly! Again - thanks!!!

If this happens all the time you may check the headphone jack for any corrosion, rust, etc. by taking a handy flashlight and shining it into that jack. Also, try another pair of headphones, if this happens all the time. If this problem occurs only while listening to that one audio track, you can check that the file plays nicely on your computer, and if it doesn't you may wanna download a new copy of that track. If those simple steps fail to result in solution, you can take an alcohol quetip into the headphone jack and clean inside, just make sure its dry when you plug your headphones back in. All in all, however, it sounds like you are having some issues either with a tuner or audio decoder chip inside the MP3 player. Typically, that results in simply the purchase of a new one. If you do get a new one, purchase a warranty - small electronics are more liable for damage than larger ones and it usually pays to invest in warranties when it comes to such things.

May computer is about two months old. Everything works fine except the sound. When you listen to something music or talking it makes a buzzing noise then continues on for a bit longer sounding good , then...

Your computer with your speaker is under warranty. Have your pc and your speaker check and replace by your reseller. Doing anything with your pc right now will make your warranty VOID.
