SoundPoint Pro conference phone hum

I bought a two-line SoundPoint Pro nearly 13 years ago for business, and it still works for calls. However, the phone recently began making a distinctive and annoying low-level hum (sound) that only stops when the phone is unplugged. Is this normal or an indication that something is wrong?

To fix it, you'll need:

Hello all,


welcome to the Polycom Community.


This is the official Polycom community and we cannot provide documentation to end users on how to attempt to repair devices due our own liability if anything would go wrong.


I am closing this post as the only way would be an official RMA
