Noisy Telus satellite receiver

Have This Buzz Hum noise on my Telus satellite receiver how to fix it to end buzz noise is it fan or hard drive or Both. If is Fan ok. If is Hard Drive ok. But If Both Fan & Hard Drive is that Bad Thing or Good Thing for Satellite Receiver. Because if Telus Garbage Change Satellite to Bell or Something. If Not Garbage tell me. Get New Receiver or End With Telus.

@jeffreybusby I moved your post from a Telus Optik TV thread to the Telus Satellite forum.

Telus Satellite uses the same hardware as Bell Satellite and they operate as an agent of Bell. Telus looks after installation, customer support and billing, but it is really the Bell Satellite service.

If you purchased the receiver and it is off warranty and you plan to fix it yourself, you can look at the Bell Satellite forum for possible fixes.

Otherwise, you can contact Telus for repair or replacement.

Useful threads, depending on model number:

Bell TV 9241 HD PVR discussion thread

Bell TV 9400 Discussion Thread

You didn't mention if this is a new problem or the PVR has always been noisy.

A buzz from a worn or dirty fan is more likely than a buzz from a hard drive. Try vacuuming the ventilation holes on the outside of the case with a soft brush attachment. Cleaning the fan with canned compressed air might also help.

A mid-range hum is more likely the hard drive. This is not unusual for hard drives even when they are working correctly. Vibration from the drive can often be felt on the case of the receiver and it can sometimes be transferred to cabinetry. It's possible that vibration from the hard drive is making something else buzz.
