Either your main pcb has a defective auido circuit or speakers are bad. Doubt it is the speakers or it would do it all the time.

The speakers are making a crackling noise that is not effected by the volume

Check the speakers first. If the voice coil of the speaker has any fault, the speaker should be replaced. Connect an other speaker in place of present one, and see whether the crackling sound occurs with it too. If yes, the audio output board to your TV have the fault, and it should be replaced.

The sound on my Dell W4200 is crackling some times even when the sound is on mute. Sometimes the sound is fine, other times no sound and other times the crackling noise. Any idea what problem may be?

Hi There,
Crackling sound is often an indication of bad connections to the speakers. Are you listening with the built-in speakers or through an external amplifier?
If you are listening through an external amplifier or speakers, check all of the connections to make sure the cables are properly inserted, and wiggle the cables from each end and the middle to see if that reproduces the symptoms. Sometimes a cable can become damaged from being squashed or bent, and it may be as simple as replacing the faulty cable with a new one.
If you are listening with the built-in speakers the situation might be harder to identify and correct. Sometimes it is as simple as nearby wireless devices or radio towers causing interference with the speaker. You can try repositioning wireless devices such as computer routers, cordless landline phones or radios to see if that helps.
However, over time the solder used to connect the internal components can wear and sometimes break the connection. For this type of situation repair is usually the only option. If the warranty of your TV has expired you may have to take it to a local TV service center. Typically a loose solder joint is easy to identify and fix, so the repair bill should not be high.
Please post back with your results.

Crackling sound, with occasional loss of sound

Let verify first to narrow down to where the problem can be, attach the powered PC speakers to the Audio Line out RCA jacks to see if you get the crackling sound there also, if you do, then the problem is in the sound processor circuit. Please post back what you find. If not, then the power section is bad. If you can live with sound from the Powered speakers, you may want to keep on using it that way, just muted the speakers in the sound setup menu, otherwise the repair bill can be in the $200~300 range.

Continuous crackling from TV speakers

I'm sure you have figured this one out. TV itself is causing the problems.
The circuit board that produces the audio signal seems to be the problem.
Before you call the repairman, go to the web site just to get an idea of what the parts will cost. That way he doesn't rip you off.

I hope I answered your question correctly. Please rate me. :)

Crackling noise from tv

That crackling noise has nothing to do with the television and everything to do with your antenna. It is merely signal breakdown, when you get signal interference with analogue tv you get snow, with digital you get little squares on the screen and/or sound breaking and cutting in and out, get a licensed antenna repairer to come out check your signal strength as you may need a booster or your antenna could just be a few degrees off....
