Vizio 42" LCD HDTV audio issues

My new Vizio 42" LCD HDTV "crackles" every once and a while, especially when it is first turned on. Also, it seems to get louder and quieter depending on what is making the sound on the TV. Voices will seem quiet but when music comes on it is blaring loud. Any suggestions?

First of all go into the audio menu settings and turn off the "surround" feature off and that should fix the voices/music differences. Does the craking sound appear while watching any sorce such as cable box,sat rcvr or DVD player? If not isolate it to that input and maybe that device is giving the problem.

I have the same TV with the same problem. I'm getting tired of hitting it.

I have been told more than once that if you usa a "Visio" LCD TV in a hot area, such as near a window that gets a lot of sun, they will ****-out. Very sensitive to heat is what I have been told.

I would like to know what to do other than chucking the POS in the trash and buying a new LG.

Sound is okay watching tv on hdtv - but crackles with dvd playing

If your DVD player supports HDMI or OPTICAL / DIGITAL audio then I would take a look at swapping to those type of connection first. This would help eliminate bad cords / connectors / electrical interference from other sources

Your TV has two hdmi inputs and optical so you have a choice

Vizio GV42L 42inch LCD/HDTV

there are several possibilities. first if the unit comes on and the "VIZIO" light turns white, but no picture or sound, then the main control board is most likely the issue. could be the LCD control board(s) depending on model one or two. and ultimately could be the power supply on the upper side....if the "VIZIO" light does NOT turn white, the whole power supply unit is out. after that, would have to scope the circuits to find out. Seems that the control board is the most common and tends to happen on many different sizes. new board will be around $350.00. Might get lucky and find a used one, but it MUST be EXACT part or it wont work right. if you dont find one or want to sell yours for parts, id be interested in the screen. can reach me at thanks, keith

No audio on some hd channes

Try pressing the MTS button on your remote while on the channel that does not have audio and select stereo. Most likely this will be set to SAP (secondary audio programming) and there is no SAP programming on that show. This is not something that could be avoided. It was during the channel scan, it locked in the SAP audio broadcasts for some reason.
