Speakers B are not longer functioning.The noise is present while playing CD, TUNER, VCR or DVD sources.The speaker connections have been checked.There are 2 front and two rear speakers plus a sub woofer, connected to this unit.Sometimes the display announces OVERLOAD, that is corrected by turning off the unit.What is the cause or source of this crackling noise? Thank you for your time.

Re: JVC RX558 VBK, Crackling noise from speakers

A quick quess of mine is the following:

The OVERLOAD indicator lights up when the receiver is maxing out on the current it is sending to the speakers. My guess is there is possibly something wrong with the receiver itself, especially since the B speakers won't play. Either that, or something is broken in your speakers or you are using a set of speakers that have too low an impedance rating for your receiver.

How can I solve my problem of crackling noise coming from speakers when turning channels?

Are you meaning it crackles when turning a tuning knob? If so, it means the pot is dirty and needs a shot of cleaner.

Keeps blowing speakers on left front channel

What exactly do you mean by "middle volume settings"? Where is the volume control physically, where are the channel levels set and what is the crossover point? After the crackling appears , do you switch speakers to the right channel to see if speakers are actually damaged or if the receiver is producing the distortion?

Because my rear speakers are popping and crackling during DTS output, I believe my settings of bass or treble might be overloading my speakers... should I set the rear speakers to "flat"? should...

Cracks and pops are dangerous. Can you tell if they might be circuit overloads or maybe digital decoding errors?

Are you routing bass to small speakers. THAT would definitely have audible problems. Define all of your speakers Large vs Small based on their bass-handling capacity.

ONLY DTS? Probably NOT the speakers or amps. How many sources are involved? Could be with the source or cabling.

Does it happen at low volumes, too? Then it would probably be digital in origin.

Do the indicators various digital surround mode indicators flicker or turn off when the pops appear?

As for the rest of your questions, I'd set everything at flat and start all over. If you're maxxing out any settings, something is wrong.

Speakers make crackling sound and sound goes in and out.

If the sound crackles when the volume is turned up or down there may be an issue with the volume switch. If the volume is going up and down on its own, I would recommend that you need a new unit as the cost would be greater to fix, then to replace.

On my jvc 517v when you turn the volume up the speakers are crackeling and scratchie and speakers sound terrible.

Is this a NEW problem or has it always been like this? What modes or sources are affected? Generally, crackling, scratchty sound is either overdrive distortion, speakers being pushed too hard, or blown speakers.

What is the exact model. Can't find the manual for "517v".

Sherwood Rx4050r and right speaker has crackling noises.

Ahh, that channel is blown. Its not 100% blown. This has happened to my freind before, and from my long knowlage in audio, the channel is blown, and is not fixable. If you REALLY are attached to it, you could probably bring it to a shop that fixes receivers, but best bet is to let it go

Noisy channel of receiver

Generally, crackling noises come from anyplace there is a mechancial connection for the sound signal. The volume control, main/remote speaker switch and possibly the headphone jack. That is where the contacts must be cleaned, but it requires dissassembly. Try operating the main/remote speaker switches, and plug/unplug a headphone several times. I am assuming there is still audio behind that crackling. Are you using both main and remote speakers simultaneously?
