View Full Version : Transporter making strange noises

My transporter has started making some strange mechanical noises when it is in standby mode, it sounds like a scratching noise a bit like I have a mouse inside!

I think it may be coming from the clever knob. Anyone else had this problem?

It was new from Logitech in October, but as it's now discontinued I'm worried that replacement might not be an option.

(Vortexbox V5 running SBS 7.5.1 Transporter Firmware 80)

Thanks

Martin

It's the knob degaussing. I never hear it on mine, but it may be because I never use the knob. See this thread:

Interesting, I don't use the knob on my Transporter, I always use the remote, but the knob still makes a rattling sound on each cursor press on the remote when I am scrolling through the menus, is that normal too?

Perfectly normal. Drives me crazy too.

I've never heard mine.

But I do use knob on occasion.

Try using it a little and see if that helps.

I know there was some buggy versions of firmware regarding it (pretty long ago now though) and I think I got my unit just after those were resolved.
