Surface Pro 3 Sound problems


New Member

has anyone of you noticed the sound problem that probably every surface has?

I have two surfaces and the problems appears on both. Here is how it comes up:

1. plug in headphones or speakers
2. play a sound/song whatever
3. stop it. Make sure no other sound is present (e.g. the sound of double clicking or a warning sound)
4. after a while a constant "bum bum bum bum" will appear on the headphones/speakers until you play another sound

This does not happen with the internal speakers, only when you plug speakers/headphones in. Can anyone confirm that for me?

I tested it with this

and this

and some inears. I also reinstalled windows. I tried everything but it appears on both surfaces - no matter what I do.

it's the ghost in the machine still playing on...



Does this occur when your surface is connected to the power, on battery or both?
Have you tested in different locations? e. g. At work and at home.
Maybe a problem with some electrical/radio interference from something.
Any other devices connected via USB?

Yeah, I tried it at different locations and disconnected the power plug and USB-devices - it still happens. So It does not happen with yours?

Do you have a link for me for the lastest von for the suface model? Want to make sure that I've got the right one.
