Question about Sony DAV-SA30 System

1 Answer

After a while the system starts crackling and eventually sound deteriorates to thundering in speakers

I have had the system for about 2 years. Just recently it has started crackling across all the TV and video channels sometimes as soon as it is swithed on but sometimes the problem comes on after a number of hours. It has been intermitant for about 4 months but has now got progressively worse. It now happens every time. It starts by a bit of faint popping across all the speakers then gets worse by crackling in time with the broadcasted sound until over a minute or two it becomes so distorted that the speakers seem to just thunder. Sometimes switching the function channels is enough to clear it but this can some times lead to total loss of all sound. Otherwise I just switch it off for a while. I have unplugged and replugged all the connections, moved the system away from the other TV devices and changed the scart connections from my other TV. Any ideas?

Hi, I have exactly the same prob and I belive that it is in the amp module?! I am going to take mine in for repair as my other sony HT amp has just give up the ghost, (STR-DE435), it has a protector prob and is probably not worth repairing, although it is a great amp. If anyone knows the solution to this prob it would be great to hear it!!!

Sounds like a couple of coincidental but unrelated symptoms.

Optical cables need precise seating and no tight bends.

Muffled, channel-specific sound is usually on the analog end. Speaker connections maybe.

Turned HK3470 system on and as soon as sound is

Look for shorts across the speaker terminals, too. If you have an ohmmeter, turn the receiver off, disconnect the speaker cables and measure across the output terminals for shorts.

No Right Front Speaker Output

Swap speakers over...check the balance isn't fully to the other channel...swap left/right phono cables over (if thats how your using it) other than that i would say is broke.
Easy way to check speaker cable/speaker... touch a small battery (like used in a remote) across speaker wires, you will hear and see the speaker cone move.

Mine does this all the time. It appears to be a factory flaw. The only way around it is to set the channel you are watching to "MONO" and the crackling sound will disappear.

My speakers have almost constant crackling noises

Hello, there is no chance that you can fix this problem by replacing speaker wires. Resoldering the output stages as well as area around the microprocesor could be the efficient solution. If you need more info please advice.
