Electronics Repair Questions? Ask an Electronics Technician
Hello, My name is ***** ***** I'll be assisting you. I'm sorry you're having problems. In order to assist you, I need to ask for more info.
1) Do you know which model Panamax you have?
2) Roughly how old is it please?
3) Is it still providing power to the connected equipment?
Thanks yes, I wasn't referring to the TV- the Panamax is a power conditioner that is purchased separately. Please tun the Panamax back on and place your hand on the top of it and see if the buzzing goes away please.
Also check to see if that buzzing is coming from the Panamax itself or your TV. Let me know.
Okay, that box contains passive and active components that filter out the AC line from your wall to send clean power to your TV, and other connected devices. If the box is buzzing it indicates that components are failing/drifting out of spec in the box and this always leads to a failure (drop in voltage or sudden cut in voltage) from the box. Unfortunately, it will ultimately fail and can cause possible failures downstream with your connected equipment. As it is not cost effective to repair these devices, a replacement would be the solution here. There are many different Panamax models available- ranging from around $70 all the way to over $500. The expensive ones are generally not needed unless your home's AC power fluctuates greatly. There are several at the link below for purchase and I typically go with the $70-$150 units for the best cost-effectiveness:
This one in particular is a good bargain and provides effective filtering without breaking the bank:
Other than that I'm sorry for the bad news here and wish there were a quick fix.
