I have a little problem and was hoping to get some help. I have had my E-Lite 5020 (PRO-111 FD) in storage for about 6 months due to moving and renovations, and now after powering it up for the first time, my panel seems to be buzzing far more than before. I know that some panels have more buzz than others, but mine has always been fairly quiet and now it's quite loud. Any thoughts on why this would suddenly happen?
Anything I can do? I have a very nice power conditioner (APC S15) that has a grounding screw on the back of the unit that it recommends components be tied to prevent ground loops from creating a hum in the audio system if one is present (unlikely to be a problem, but I guess they put it there just in case) - would grounding the TV make any difference? Since that feature is more for resolving audio hum, I doubt it, but I thought I'd put it out there anyway. Thanks for any help...
EDIT: Apparently, ground loop is a common issue, and something I might want to address even if it's unrelated to this. Funny, every other surge protector I've owned in the past has made no mention of this...
Had my Pro-111 in storage for 8 months also due to moving and renos etc. Set it up and turned it on and it had a above normal buzzing sound that I did not like. I said oh no I have a buzzer panel but it never buzzed like this before.
However, the good news is that it went away after a week of normal viewing. Maybe if these panels are not used theres a build up of static electricity or dust or something. Hopefully your buzzing will go away with normal viewing use.
