Re: Cracking Noise

My motherlaw has a panasonic HDTV that sets on a separate base. Because the tv cabinet expands and contacts when turned on and off and the base doesn't, the snapping sound was a mechanical problem related to expansion and contraction...not electronics. I fixed the problem by isolating the tv and the base with a piece of slippery plastic. The snapping sound hasn't come back. Weird problem, but was easy enough to resolve.

Your speakers need replacing or you could turn down the volume till it stops and use it like that if it's not too quiet.

Fan/Engine noise.

Dig down inside and find where the noise is coming from. Just don't stick you hands inside while the TV is on.

Sony KP-51WS500 wil not turn on

did you notice any color flashing at all during the poping? As that model is fairly famous for the green CRT shorting out or the flyback arcing. Does the power LED light up at all or possibly blink? Let me know about the LED and I will try to help you diagnose what the problem may actually be. respond to this same post, so I can keep this problem seperate as I have so many responses with different problems that its hard to keep them straight unless we keep using the origional request each time.

Loud Cracking/Popping Sound

Any other symptoms? You may be just hearing the occasional sound of static being bled off, or, if the set is not working properly, the sound of the high voltage section trying to compensate...accordianman

Sharp 65dr650 rear projection tv makes loud nois while its on

Looks like we all got screwed with this TV. Mine just started after 2 years and now it's getting louder. I think I rather call my lawyer than Tech. This product is NOT build properly and someone should let the company know about it.

Loud noise from tv

if this is a very annoying screeching or sqeualing type sound, it is, in my experience, the "color wheel" which is located inside the lite engine. this is a replaceable component whick costs about $110....i've done this repair many times with no problem....
