    Two known issues with buzz/whine on the MBP is know (as far as I know)

    "The Whine": high pitched sound which when turning on Photo Booth should disappear. If you have the whine a Logic Board replacement will remove the sound.

    "The Buzz": sound emitting from a bad screen inverter. Changing the screen brightness should alter the volume/sound of the buzz. A new inverter should remove the buzz.

    Any of the above sound familiar?

    My MBP has the same problem. I was thinking of sending it in to fix, but I can't spare the time until around xmas, as I use the laptop for work.

    The whine, well at least for mine, comes from the left side speakers. So maybe your MBP has the inverter problem...when was this purchased?

    I am having a similar problem. Had it on my bed when it sounded like something on the fan snapped. Any ideas on how to fix it?

    I know this is an old post.....

    Any solutions yet? I have a brand new MacBook Pro, and I am getting a buzz on the right side of it. It happened out of the blue. What did you do?

    I think it is the remote bomb. A new anti-theft remotely activated feature Apple added, Don't worry it is completely safe

    Thanks. It's weird cause I got a 17in pro.

    The buzzing only comes through with low frequency sounds it seems.

    I just balance my speakers to the left when I'm doing something that it is happening on.

    Let me know if Apple does anything for ya. Thanks.
