Any tip to resolve the issue? Of course calling power company is not one of the solutions and I'm sure that they won't help here. 

Here's something that I'm considering to add inside my room's power outlet. Would this help my issue ? http://diyaudiocart.com/Electronics-Parts/RFI-EMI-Filter
Sounds like you need a power conditioner.

I'm not sure what plug style you have, or whether or not you have an Amazon website by you, but here's an example of something that would address your problem, but also extend the life of your electronics:

Furman M-8X2 Merit Series 8 Outlet Power Conditioner and Surge Protector https://www.amazon.com/dp/B003BQ91Y6/ref=cm_sw_r_other_awd_Ro.6wb0HYSV4H

Adding a battery backup to the above suggestion is also a good idea for at least the computer.

All in one conditioner, surge & battery are available.

Great, didn't' know about such devices. This is certainly a correct direction to go. Thanks Vince, for the information. I'll search on what equivalents are available at my place. Direly in need of it.

 

EDIT: Yup it's available here but costs double. Will think.

Battery backup as inverter/UPS? As far as I know they are less likely to alleviate the issue I'm facing, because the power conversion inside them generates a lot of noise. i had a sine wave inverter installed in my house and that generated some electrical noise.

:cool: Vince is correct. You need a power supply/conditioner. They sell tons of them at guitar center. Works on my Marshall. :biggrin:

I never thought of amazon. Probably cheaper.

An Isobar is also good to have in your computer chain. Each outlet is self contained from the next. Has a noise infiltration system built in and is also highly rated surge protector. 8 outlet goes for about 50 bucks

It's a work of art.  Very appreciative of his efforts.

Yes, he's pretty handy with soldering, electronics etc.

Was important for you especially, considering your only other cable malfunctioned. smily_headphones1.gif

Well I did indeed end up getting Ety to check on it as well, got a replaced cable from there as well.  But this is infinitely cooler!

Thanks a lot for the help, greatly appreciated. I didn't know about power conditioners before.
