    Hi I have a sony dav-sa30 and it has a grounding point on the back.

    It pops through the speakers now and again and Ive tried allsorts of drivers etc but no luck. Want to try to ground it before I sell it.

    Does anyone know how I go about earthing this device.

    Cheers

    Hi,

    What do you mean by "pops through"? A pop sound when power-on?

    If the device is not earthed via the mains cord then it does not require an earth.
    Grounding points on the back of amps/receivers are for grounding a turn table.

    Hi thanks for the replies,

    My sony dav is connected to my PC via twin phono to jack. I am using a DVB-T card with nvidia nforce2 audio. The amp/dvd omits a popping noise through the speakers that get faster and faster until I turn the unit off and on which cures it until the next time. I read loads of posts etc I am using 5.10 drivers as advised and this has minimised the problem but not cured it.

    The only thing left to try is earthing it.

    I think that when a bad signal is recieved through my DVB card (freeview channels) it pops and it seems to manifest itself within the system and through to my amp.

    Cheers for responding again look forward to your repy.

    :clap:
