Crakling sound is a symptom of loose or cold solder in amplifier section where the STK IC or Darlington transistor is located .You better re solder all parts joints there in order the crackling sound is gone.

Hope it may help you;

I have loud box artist,channel 2 make a cracklings noise even when my guitar is not plugged in .The cracklings noise takes a while to start getting noisey


With nothing plugged in and the noise still there it most likely the output stage of the amp. If the unit is under warranty - tag it, bag it, and send it back for a new one. If not under warranty, you should remove the chassis and inspect for anything loose and spray the guts with zero residue contact cleaner. Use the cleaner liberally. Usually these output noises are the result of loose or dirty components. Clean all the electronics, put it back together and see if that doesn't get rid of the noise.
Good Luck!

My Paradigm PDR 12 subwoofer has started to make crackling noises. Is this an amplifier malfunction?


Depends when it makes these crackling noises.

If it's when the sub isn't being driven, then it could be the amp. (Check for bulging capacitors on the amp board). If it's when you move cables about then it could be a broken lead or a dry solder joint on one of the inputs.

If the crackling is when the sub is running then it might be the voice coil has distorted due to being overdriven with a poor and highly distorted signal.

Westinghouse TV making crackling sound


I have had the same issue with a Westinghouse 50 inch LED TV. I believe it is not the power supply but the HDMI input. You can temporarily work around by plugging your primary source into the other HDMI. You may also get some relief by using the Westy remote, finding the TV menu, then selecting (Option) (Restore All). There may be an arcane procedure to reset the HDMI.

Very loud hummimg and crackling - even when volume turned down.


There are a few variants for this model depending upon the serial number. From your description, there are some capacitors in between the amp stages called coupling caps that are failing. The hum is some DC current being passed through the output stage. The crackling is probably just dirty controls.

definitely a heat problem. There is a chip (or set of chips, perhaps audio output chips) that work fine when cool, but when they are hot they start to fail. Common problem with IC's. Heat is not a friend of these devices. Time to get it repaired or get a new one, depending on cost of course. Also, do you have an amp attached? Perhaps the amp is the device with the failing IC's.
