Question about Samsung HLT6189S Television

2 Answers

Popping Sound Hello. While watching I hear intermittent "popping" sounds. I've since learned that it's the TV's frame reacting (expanding/contracting) to fluctuations in temperature given off by the TV itself. It's frustrating and while not "loud" it's a distraction. Is there a workaround short of contacting Samsung? And if contacting Samsung is my only option, does anyone have suggestions as to the best approach (I purchased the set from Best Buy in June and didn't buy a service plan). Thanks in advance.

Re: Popping Sound

The case fix is going to be pretty substantial and either need a whole new case or case seels that go all the way around, realistically only Samsung are gona provide them. In Britain I never tell friends to check store policy as it's just store policy, so to speak, instead check out local consumer law, just as with the UK you may find store policy only counts if you accept it and the law offers you more protection/rights than the store are going to tell you. Although as I recall best buy tend to be OK with there customers.

Re: Popping Sound

If you baught it in June this year you should be able to return it to the store for a refund or replacement, even if they only offer you store credit you can still pick a diferent TV.

Sharp Aquos LC-26D4U sound problem

Yes this is a common problem. You have to have it refered to a TV SHOP. I can fix it for you but in CA. the wiring on the speakers needs to be upgraded to a thicker wire. The gauge is to small for the current needed to flow evenly.

Eldft406 tv is popping and no sound is coming out.

What is popping? Do you hear popping from the speakers or the back of the TV? You could have a serious issue on the power supply of the TV making this sound. Below is a link to the power supply for that TV.

Sony Bravia XBR-2 32-inch LCD with popping noise problem

Unfortunately, we have the same problem. We hear popping and our sound goes lower. It is not the cable box for us, it's definitely the TV; however, it happens, on our set, after its been on for a few minutes and then goes away after half an hour or so -- however, this evening its been happening for the past hour and the TV has been on for the evening.

Popping sounds from tv

You are getting a spike through the audio circuit for some reason.. Does the screen stay 100% Normal when it happens? And is it a steady timed thing or intermittent?
