Question about Sharp Aquos LC-45GD6U 45 in. LCD HDTV
Sound is like loud static. Noise is more pronounced after installing new direct tv box. This problem ongoing since we purchased the tv new in 8/2005.
1) Tried another HDMI cable- same crackling noise.
2) Component connection works fine.
3) HDMI Connection to other tv from same sat. box checks out ok.
I have a Sharp Aquos 46" and go a Comcast HD receiver as well, and had the same problem turning off the Closed Captioning. I order to turn it off you need to go into the box user setting by (starting w/ the cable box and tv on) pressing the power button for the cable box then the menu button for the cable box. This will open up the user settings menu. Just toggle CLOSED CAPTION to DISABLED.

When you use component audio, it may shut off the side a/v audio settings. Try restoring all defualts (any changes you have made will be lost by doing so) according to p. 32 of the manual:
Menu --> Setup --> Reset --> Yes

I too went through this problem.
Step 1 - Plug in your "composite" cables and the HDMI cable to the PS3. Obviously, the "composite" cable are the ones that came with the system. You need to start with them as the default connector.
Step 2 - After connecting the "composite" cable and the HDMI cable to the PS3, connect the other ends to your TV.
Step 3 - Power on your PS3
Step 4 - Select display settings-->video output settings
Step 5 - Change from the current video cables to HDMI. (Your tv has different inputs. When you switch to HDMI in the PS3, you will have to switch your TV to the HDMI input that it is connected to, to get a picture)
Step 6 - Be quick, the PS3 will display a "test" for 30 seconds. You need to switch your tv to the correct HDMI input and press "X" on your controller to accept the change.
Let me know how this works for you.

First off a little tip that manufacturers don't tell you is that you HAVE to TURN OFF the POWER to ANY UNITS that you are Connecting to via HDMI!!!!!!! If not you can short out the Inputs!!!!!!!! HDMI is usually Automatic, But sometimes you need to go into the Menus on all Devices to the HDMI section and write down their settings and compare them. Any definition that you are not sure of check the Manual or Google it! Match all the Settings (there won't be Much!) Hopefully the Inputs were not Damaged it only takes one time to short it out and then the Repairman makes a few bucks! Good Luck!

I got the sound on my LC32D6U fixed for free. Even though the TV is out of warranty, Sharp considers it under warranty for the sound problem. The number i 800-237-4277.
