    Thanks Dan,

    I tried and have resoldered a lot of connections, I also resoldered the 3 legged transistor on the heat sink...but the problem persists...

    Thanks Dan, I think your help with the possible parts and the service manual would really be helpful. One of my friends who is a good troubleshooter was tellling me that even the board could be leaking (I could not understand that), even he had suggested to go thru the oscilloscope route. Look forward to get an idea of the possible parts required.

There are poor solder connections somewhere on the board. Usually these are at the voltage regulators where there can be some heat. Look for 3-legged transistors attached to small metal heatsinks, If you can solder, resolder the pins on those parts. Also look for any connections that appear to be grasiny or have rings and resolder them too.

Keep us posted.

    If the resoldering does not resolve the problem, there is a defective transistor most likely in the pre-amp section. The transistor is breaking down which is causing the noise. Unles you are familiar with electronic troubleshooting and have access to an oscilloscope, this will be difficult to trace. I'll try to locate the service manual on this to give you a couple of possible parts, but it may take a few days. Your other alternative wuold be to request a detailed estimate from a local shop. Post the results here if you go that root.

Cracking sound from satellite speakers


Crackling is typical with dirty and/or loose connections in the speaker cable.
If you mounted or otherwise moved your speakers to position them while the speaker cable was connected then it's very possible that some of the threads broke or your connector is loose.

No sound coming out of speakers


A quick way to check your speakers is to put the contacts from a 9 volt battery to the positive and negative speaker wires (briefly). You should hear a crackle of some sort if the speakers are functioning. If there is no crackle, speakers are bad / if there is a crackle, your head unit must have a problem.

I don't know if this is a solution but I was getting the same thing and adjusted the dynamic range to min and it seemed to get rid of the crackling sound. Not sure why that works but it does.

Harman Kardon AVR 245 Receiver PROTECT Error Message/Shutting Down All Equipment


could be your receiver only, it has tripped due to discrepancy on the output stage of your amp. that cracking sound in one of your speakers could have caused the trouble. it is possibly shorted. but in your case it could have damaged already the amp that;s why it would not turn on. normally it will first trip, turn on then turns off. but to stay off and not to turn on again is major problem of the amp. or maybe it emanated from miscabling, probably the ceiling speakers got connected to a high output or main amp. but try removing all speakers first then turn the unit on. see if it does power up.

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.
