Noise and distortion on sound

Around the 15 minute and 50 minute time the system starts making a popping noise and then distorts the sound when watching Sky and or Video and or Tv but not dvds direct thru the TV. It has been suggested that there is some sort of feedback via the cable or scart setup, but I am at a loss of how to sort this out. Martin Moss.

Re: noise and distortion on sound

Thanks for the solution, but it is only tempory. It stops the noise but keeps coming back. The audio conections seems to be the problem but these have been checked out and are OK.

Why does our subwoofer all of a sudden start to buzz when we turn on our stereo/home theatre system on?

Well if it buzzes only for a couple minutes after turn on then it could be when the woofer starts pumping it produces pressure in the cabinet which creates a bonding motion that then closes the cracks, kinda like glue. Like blowing a balloon up in a box. The balloon is the pressure, OR Yes it could be your woofer is going bad. All speakers have voice coils. Tiny wire wrapped around a thin layer of cardboard then attached to the cone. This cone could be getting loose. But when the woofer heats up after a couple minutes it probably bonds the tiny wires so then the vibration or buzzing disappears. Over time woofers can die especially if it produces a lot of distortion, In a speakers life distortion kills and it doesn't matter how much power it can handle or how much money you spent on it.
Not all sub-woofers are alike. Some can handle the really low lows, and some can not. Check your settings too. Over time the vibration of the woofer will start to undo the glue, nails, screws, and even burn through the tiny wires in the voice coil. Oh and make your china crawl across the table... Have you been watching a lot more action movies? Some of the older woofers can't handle the newer digital deep bass frequencies... You may have to reconfigure your setup.

Out of nowhere, the sound became extremely distorted for everything. Changed to several other inputs (DVD, CBL-SAT) but all were distorted

Bad connection? Unplug the sub to see if it has anything to do with the surround or coil on the sub speaker. Connect the cubes separately to test.

My SONY Home Theater Model HT-6600DP unit was working fine and then about tow years after...present, my sub woofer is sounding distorted. Why is this happening? Please help me as I often watch my home...

Is it so even at lower volumes?

Are you sure it's the sub distorting and not the front or center speakers?

If you designate them incorrectly as Large (which tells the receiver they CAN effectively produce bass frequencies) they will probably distort in the presence of low frequencies.

Distortion noise from the 5 speakers and a sub

rattling noise comes from your wiring color coding. make sure positive goes into positive, negative to negative. You may have connected the output into the output of the sub. and satellites are in the input.

Sound of the recording after burnt to a cd is very low

adjust your top knob which is called the gain, this will allow the incoming signal to be muchlouder depending on where you set it , the bottom fader is for playback volume and mixing and you should also a avolume control for your head set , follow also the recording instructions in your manual for optimal settings , there,s no reason that your recordings should come out with low volume other then your gain control being set to low , hope i was able to help , if i was please leave a nice rating ,sincerely glenn mayer

I have a panasonic ht730 home theatre system. distorted sound

If the sound is distorted and is effected by the volume control, the problem is in the "front end". This is not a common problem, but is significantly less expensive to fix than the output section. Try turning off any surround mode and run the unit in plain stereo. Does the distortion still occur? I suspect that it will not. Update this with that info and I should be able to list the probable parts that need to be replaced.

Dvd playback

Maybe it's something with picture settings, i.e. NTSC/PAL or INTERLACE/PROGRESSIVE SCAN.

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

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!!!
