Lenovo Yoga 700 Speakers Making Loud Buzzing Noise

2016-08-12, 0:13 AM

I put my headphones in the jack today and heard a weird background noise. When I removed them, the computer speakers were making a loud buzzing noise as well.  The buzzing noise comes and goes and disappears if I mute the computer's volume.  I cannot hear any audio on my computer now (no music, videos, noise at start up/shut down, etc.).

 

I have tried updating the sound drivers and restarting the computer several times, but to no avail.  I have also tried to get sound with and without external speakers attached, with and without headphones in, etc. and I can only occassionally get the loud buzzing noise which is coming directly from both of the speaker vents on the bottom of the computer.  Thoughts on a solution?

Hi there, Autumn –

 

Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.

 

Try disabling the Mic

Right click on the speaker icon on the Lower right taskbar near the time and select Recording Devices.

Then turn off the Mic here or put the slider to the very right side.    

 

Update us how it goes.

Still no sound after disabling the microphone. I'm thinking this is a more serious hardware issue,  which is really disappointing for a computer that is only 6 months old.

Have you tried to remove/replace the audio jack into the output area properly? Sometimes it gets loose and it's normal that you hear buzzing sound. Also, please, check if the headphones are ok.

 

Update us how it goes.

There is no sound or just buzzing with our without headphones or external speakers connected.  The computer has no sound or only buzzing with all speaker options. There is no noise when the computer starts up now, when I play videos, etc. The headphones and external speakers work fine on other devices.

There is usually a hardware switch in the socket, which is engaged when you put the plug in. Seems like it might be mechanically broken.

 

I would recommend you to contact Lenovo service center and report your findings.

 

Update us how it goes.

Did this get resolved? I have exactly the same problem on a 13 month old laptop (which was a replacement for another Yoga - better spec- that broke after just 4 months!) Not impressed!! Nevertheless I have no option but to try and fix so any help appreciated.
