Re: 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....

Re: crackling noise from tv

Just to let you know I have that crackling sound in my Phillips 50 inch Plasma also. I called phillips and they gave me a number to call of a electronics lab that picked up the tv and after 7 days had the nerve to tell me they heard nothing. No sooner after the turning the set on did I hear that same crackling, which also happens when the tv set is off ( starnge right.. ? )
I bought the set in may of 07' and bought the 2 year extended warranty ... so I am not worried yet. The crackling happens for only a few seconds ... but why should it happen at all, and what might the longer term effect be, that is the question ....

My Sony Bravia 40" has a loud crackle and pops about every 4 hours. Should I be concerned about fire hazard? Should I exchange it for another?

Yes,if it still under warrenty take it right away.Exchange it for another one.Probally won't cause fire,but it will kill ur power supply board sooner or later.It will cost u about $200 to buy another refurbish power supply board,and labors to put it in or cost u $$ some tv Tech. to put it in.

Surround sound problems

you need an optical cable which it's sort of mentioned in the manual, but because of the multitude of possible ways to connect the TV to the sound surround, I did not figure out either.
I got my optical cable at BestBuy for about $45.00
