KDF60WF655 Popping, Cracking, Squeaking sounds?

I've had my KDF60WF655 for two years now and it has been excellent in every way. Recently however it seems the TV has started to settle and it makes popping sounds when either on or off. These popping sounds are not audio related, they are similar to what you would hear if you pushed or pulled on the TV from different sides. The sound can be reproduced most accurately by pulling forward on the top of the screen. The sounds are clearly being made by the plastic TV housing or structural plastic inside the TV and there are no physical signs of any problems. Have any other KDF60WF655 owners experienced these same sounds? Thanks in advance - Aaron

The outer screen case screws need to be tightened.

Why would our Samsung MN HL 850 86W make a crackling noise after it warms up? It sounds like the cracking of a fire. What could it be?

Your lamp ballast is going bad. Might last a few more months, but eventually it will have to be replaced. Bulb will also likely have to be replaced at same time, but try the ballast first.

It powers on but the power button blinks an the screen will not light up an i hear a popping an crackling sound in the back of it its a very faint sound

You should check the lamp. The cracking sound is the ballast trying to fire the lamp. The part number is TY-LA1000 and can run up to $275

Replace lamp and make sure to get Son original replacement lamp to solve the issue.

Rca hdtv 52inch will play fine then picture goes black but still has sound.. after a few mins.picture will come back on , and will play fine could last all day or may go out again in a few mins.

My tv is relatively new, but the bad thing is that I had an old; big screen tube type rca model; home theatre, that was heavier than a car, and it went out, due to the cracking and popping sound, off sometimes, and back on.
What is strange is the new tv now, the hdtv, light weight, about five years old, is doing the same thing. Actually, now, the power will not even come on. The lcd green light in the front goes on and off.
Take no offense, but I thought I would not have these problems anymore. What do you suggest?

Rca p52151WK projection tv problem

It is not worth to fix,even if you could do it. With the replacement part cost,you might as well buy a new TV.With the economy today,and Circuit City is filing Chapter 11,and best buy is hurting,you could get a knock out deal from a retail store!

Loud Cracking/Popping Sound

Any other symptoms? You may be just hearing the occasional sound of static being bled off, or, if the set is not working properly, the sound of the high voltage section trying to compensate...accordianman
