The best way to test your sound problem is to buy another pair of patch cables/RCA cables and try those, most likely you have a ground loop in the RCA cables, basically you are creating a ground when you touch it.

I have an ibanez tone blaster,the lights and all come on but no sound is made. Can anyone tell me what might be the problem?

Some hopefully easy fixes : Input jack could be the problem, or connection from the amp to the speaker. Does the speaker hum a bit with the volume up almost all of the way without anything plugged into the unit? If not, check the connection from speaker to amp.

If it does hum slightly when u crank the volume, check your input jack -- it might be jacked up (pardon the pun) and you can fix that easily by soldering in a new one.

Turns on, but why is there no output sound or signal lights?

Are you sure that there is an input going into the amp? To check amp operation you can use a small screw driver, lower the volume and touch the blade while you insert it into the middle of the rca input jack - listen for a hum when you make contact. If you get the hum the amp is functional. If nada that channel is ng.

My Epiphone Dot just started humming really loudly when I plug it in - it stops humming when I touch the input jack. I assume it's a grounding issue on the input jack, but how do I get at...

Make you a hook out of a coat hanger. Get inside and hook the wiring to the jack, take the nut off the jack and pull it up through the F hole. You can plug in to it a patch cord so you can pull it back through once fixed. Check out Guitarelectronics.com for a wiring diagram.

I dont have sound on my laptop

A general case might be to take the stereo headphone output of the laptop and feed it a set of left and right line level (not microphone level) inputs to the soundboard. Radio Shack sells a cable that has a typical mini stereo headphone plug on one end and a pair of RCA Phono plugs on the other end. If the soundboard does not have phono jack inputs you will need some type of adapter plug on the ends of the cable phono plugs to match the soundboard's connector.

You then experiment with the laptop's volume control setting (start low) and the soundboard's input level control to get undistorted sound with minimum noise and hum. If you can not get rid of the hum, you probably need to add a ground loop isolation box (also available from Radio Shack, I believe) to reduce or eliminate the hum. __________________

My subwoofer is working but I think it developed a short ciruit. The input jack in the back hums but no sound? Am I right and where can I go to get it repaired?

you need to perform this ...one end of the jack is on the input of your unit and the opposite end try to touch if there is hum ..set a maximum volume..to hear it better...if there is sound your unit is good..if without,your input is deffective..make sure that our jack is good.

Tin like sound from small speakers only. No sound

switch on your speaker set in full volume unplug it from computer touch the plug , as you touch you can hear a sound ( loud hum sound) if the speaker is working. If okay then check the right jack, plug it into green color jack. you can try if your computer is okay use a headphone plug it into the jack in PC , if the computer is okay you may hear the sound.

No sound between freeview hd box and home theatre system

First of all make sure the audio out jacks on your freeview are securely plugged in and routed to the proper input jacks on your surround sound unit and the correct input source is selected on the sourround sound unit. If all is well with this you can test if the surrond sound unit is functioning properly buy turning the volume up half way on the unit. Unplug the right and left cables from your freview and leave the other ends plugged into your surround sound(with the volume up half way). Now touch the tip of the right side cable with your finger tip. the right speakers should hum. And then touch the tip of the left plug and the left speakers should hum. If you get no hum you either have the wrong input source selected on the surround device or the is a problem with it. If the surround sound device is functioning with another device properly, disconnect the cable from that device( ex.dvd,cable,vcr, ect,...) and connect those cables to the output on your freeview. If you still do not get sound, make sure the volume is not muted somehow on your freeview. As you have now connected a verified audio input to your surround sound directly to your freeview and made sure the freeview was not in anyway muted there is a problem with the audio out on your freeview. I hope this helped you solve your problem but if nor feel free to contact me before rating this solution and I will walk you through everything and make sure we get this problem isolated or ultimately fixed.
You can send me your number to my e-mail addresss which is my user name @gmail.com and I will call you free , I have skype and yahoo phone so it will only cost me pennies. I just want to make sure your problem gets fixed for you.

Amp works on off on off

The buzzing is possibly the electrical mains hum at 50hz, all amps have a hum/buzzing... if you have to tap the jack lead between the guitar and amp it could simply be a connection problem, the cable may be old and internally damages, maybe loose wiring on the other side of one of the input jacks

Speakers won't work

Hi, you may want to try plugging the input line of the Dell speaker to the other jacks. Normally green is for speaker, pink - microphone and blue is for line-in and all are normally at the back of the computer. Sometimes, the back are deactivated if there are jacks in the front., so you may to try plugging it in the front if they are present. Assuming the speakers light/power up, if you want to check if they are working is by touching with your finder the input plug which should produce a humming sound. Also worth to check the drivers of your sound card. Hope this works for you. Regards.
