Crackle, off, on, now won't come on.

This sounds strange. first my tv started to crackle through the speakers and the picture would get some static for about 1 second, then the tv would turn off and right back on. it did this for about a month and now won't turn on. is it trash?

No sound picture is great

on the main avi board there is a series of capacitors check these. if you have the tv on and have the sound up on full do you hear a humming sound ? or a crackle sound. also try the external speakers out you will need to change the settings on the tv menu to activate this and try some computer speakers on them see if this side of the audio board is faulty as well.

If that sound from behind TV like friction sound it mostly from the color wheel.

TV made a big popping sound, and then a crackling

Hi,do you hear any strange noises? If you hear clicking or like wanting to turn on it could be the board that powers the lamp it's called the ballast.Here's the instructions to replace it : That crackling sound could be of the color wheel:The color wheel is a rotating disc that has a gamma of colors it spins at high rpms.The light of the lamp goes through it to create the colors on your tv.When it starts to go bad you will get color distortion ,black and white picture and sometimes you will hear humming noises. But if you don't hear any strange noises,tv is around 6000 hrs,2-4 yrs it could be time to replace the lamp.The lamp you need is BP9601073A you can find original here: .Have a blessed one!

Akai PT5598HD 55 in. Rear Projection

Something like this Id have someone who knows there way around electronics, a qualified tech or someone you trust really well :-) Does the crackling affect the TV picture at all ? My first guess would be dust and or dampness on the audio components. Sometimes this can conduct electricity across small pc chips and reak all sorts of havoc. I had an old Tomas electric organ once, and it actually caught fire because two speaker wires were rubbing together and eventually wore thru the insulation and shorted out, but it was also making alot of crackling and static noises. Try raising and lowering the volume low to high and high to low and see if the crackling noises gets worse. Some audio amplifiers put out quite a bit of power, so I wouldnt trust leaving the TV on without a fire extinguisher handy.
