Some of you may remember the night I posted that thread on the microwave, cordless telephones, etc. just 'dying' all of a sudden...well, here's another one for you...
Recently, I've had 'voices' on my computer that sound when I click connect, just before the dial tone sounds. I tried unplugging all te other telephone lines around the house, and they were still there. Then, for some reason, I unplugged my USB Hub, and they stopped.
Anyway, I traced it back to, of all things, my printer (HP PSC1215). After unplugging the USB cable from the hub there were no voices, so I reconnected to cable and unplugged it from the mains, and there were no voices again.
Soooo, how on earth are these voices going through the mains, through the printer, through the hub and onto my PC just as I click the connect button?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
I have no idea why I get stuck with all the strange things, but I swear that I am telling the truth and am confused!
would you like to come and join my other patients:)
I am sure a bed can be readily arrranged for you in a nice warm room with....
and , seriously, could you quite literaly have some wires crosed somewhere or..?
and, remembering that "other" incident very well(!!)have you had your wiring checked thoroughly in the house : it is "funny" to read, but I am considering the serious implications of a perhaps minor "hiccough" in wiring ..
Coils of wire within your printer could be picking up radio waves from the air and passing them along you wiring and you speakers are transmitting them. It is not unknown for this to happen. I have often heard voices and music which have no apparent cause. I made up a Music CD for a friend and he complained of voices in the background. I had no answer for him and still don't.
