Full Version: SL-C860 display buzzing
OESF Portables Forum > Everything Else > Archived Forums > Distros, Development, and Model Specific Forums > Model Specific Forums > Sharp Zaurus > Cxx0 Hardware
I just bought a brand new SL-C860 a few days ago. When I turn down the display brightness, there is a buzzing sound coming from the display. It is really slight, and you have to put your ear up to the display to hear it, but this doesn't seem healthy. The intensity of the buzzing varies depending on the brightness and it only goes away when the brightness at its highest. Has anyone else noticed this in their Zaurii?

That's normal for minor buzzing. All the clamshells have it. Some are more subtle than others
That's good to know. Thanks for the reply.

It from a small transformer that's used to convert the low battery voltage into a high voltage to drive the backlight (that's why it is less noticable at lower brightness). Again, nothing to worry about - beautiful machine isn't it!
