Customer Question
Lifestyle surround sound system...

Lifestyle surround sound system main box hums. Started after a power surge. System all works except cd player. The main box hums. If I remove the Serial Data plug the hum stops. How can I stop the hum?

Technician's Assistant: Have you tried power cycling the appliance -- unplugging it and leaving it off for a few hours?

No

Technician's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

If possible. If it something easy.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

No. If there is a local service center I will Take the unit there.
