    Xbox started making loud humming noise


    Over the past few weeks I've noticed my Xbox developing a humming sound. It makes the noise at all times, idle, during gameplay, watching videos etc. and the noise is there constantly, though it has become louder more frequently. I can hear it at all times
    and from a distance, the sound often drowns out the sound of the TV as well. I assume there is a fault somewhere because no one in the right mind would plug a TV box through the console if they're going to hear this low humming sound all the time?

    Here's a video I recorded, it picks up the sound very well, just imagine hearing that constantly, from about 10ft away.



    Do you think the retailer I bought it from will exchange it? I've been through two advanced exchanges directly but Xbox have sent me broken refurbished consoles twice, (one which wouldn't stay powered on and one with a grinding fan noise). I'd rather just
    swap it at GAME if they will acknowledge it as faulty.

    :)

    Power brick buzzing

    Mine makes a fan noise which could be described as buzzing but I have to go quite close to it to hear it.

    The console itself is far louder.

    Or are you referring to an electrical hum?

    If you can hear a loud electrical hum then it's probably faulty.

    Loud Noise while installing Games

    I just bought mine last night and its doing the same thing. Loud buzzing or humming type noise only while installing a game. Not like a fan or something is hitting something. It's a consistant hum/buzz but it is quite loud

    What exacly does the "tone" sound mean?

    I think you mean the loud humming sound that resonates when you are near a Ninroot plant. These plants are scarttered throughout Skyrim (usually located near water) and make a loud humming noise when you are near, aditionally at night they glow brightly
    like a beacon and emit a whitish mist that can be seen from a great distance. The Crimson Ninroot also hums like this, but does not show any visible signs other than the red coloration.
