    Default Annoying electrical buzz

    In my car when I have my phone plugged in with power and auxiliary , I will get a really annoying electrical buzz through the speakers. Is this due to a bad charger or is this normal. I'm trying to figure out how to get rid of that so any suggestions are welcome.

    You might have a bad AUX connection, either at the phone end or the back of your deck. Have you tried moving the cable around to see if it gets better when in a different position?

    Is it there when you unplug the charger?

    It goes away when I unplug the charger, and occasionally when I am driving ( like 20% of the time) the buzz will go away or get really soft.

    It is interference from the power. When I was experiencing that in my truck it went almost completely when I bought better quality audio plug.

    so by better quality audio cable do you mean thicker gauge or better connectors?

    I hear a buzzing sound from my wall charger when the phone is NOT plugged in. As soon as i plug it in it stops. Kinda annoying. My sister has a GN too and her charger does the same thing

    I have the same issue, it bugs me as the charger is right by my bed. (at least it serves as a reminder to plug my phone in at night)

    You need a ground loop hum eliminator. You probably find a cheaper one but here is a link for one (see below).. I had this same problem when charging my phone and listening to music. This is very common.. You can read more about it by googling "ground loop hum"
