Clicking noise on Multitech/Dolby setting

I get a clicking noise every 30 secs or so on the above setting when running the tv sound through the system and also off dvds. Its really annoying as this is by far the best sound setting especially for music. I have a Philips plasma bought at the same time and a HDMI cable linking them. I have tried the speakers in every possible position so its definitely not interference due to the speakers being too close to the TV. Please has any one any ideas or is it just a fault ?

    Yeh I had it from the beginning but just never got round to taking it back but busy life an all that ... I know I should. I have tried it on scart and 2 brand new HDMI cables and still the same. There are loads of wires though at the back so I'll try separating them out but seems a long shot to jsut be that ?

    I'm on vs 36 does this make any difference to the upgrade you have given me the link to or does this have all previous upgrades contained in it ?

  • oldvinny Dec 26, 2007

    Sorry in advance being totally dim here .... I have downloaded the file so now have a "bin" file on my pc which I cannot read ... I have Media player so can burn cds but do I have to go and download Nero (148 meg worth) or Easyvdcreator just to open the thing up as the instructions make no reference to Win Media

  • oldvinny Dec 26, 2007

    I have moved all cables so that the HDMI from TV to DVD does not touch anything else. I'm struggling to get the version upgrade from Philips working though .... its a bin file which I don't recognise do I have to have Nero or Easy to be able to do something with it ?

    The clicking noise is just on this one particular setting Mulitech/Dolby .... all other sound settings are crystal clear

Hi,

Did you experience this from the start (since the first time you used it) or did it started just recently? Check that the HDMI cable is connected properly at both ends and it's not near/touching any other cable or power supply. After checking this and if it is still there then it could be a fault with the cable. If you have another cable to try, that would be great.

    Did you try unplugging the unit for a few hours? Also, did you try a firmware update? If not you can get the update here.

Philips TV making a strange clicking noise


A model number would be helpful to answer this but:

This clicking sounds (no pun) like either a mechanical relay in the set's power supply or possible arcing somewhere in the set.

These sets also have a shutdown feature that if engaged may sound like a tic-tic sound.

Let me know model number which is not indicated on this question here.

Sound works everywhere except the games


I had this exact problem when I first got my Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound. Disregard what others have said, though it would make sense to check all formats, that is not the case here. De-select all formats except Dolby digital 5.1. There should also be 2 formats that you cant make unchecked, but don't worry about those. Now go into your game, if you begin to hear a loud static/clicking noise, cycle between optical and another setting on your receiver until the sound from the game is clear. For some reason, the PS3 cannot decode sound through optics correctly.

My Magnavox plasma screen tv, model number: 42MF237S/37 makes a clicking sound when I try to turn it on. No sounds, no picture, just the clicking noise. Things I have tried so far: 1) Turning the TV off...


You either have a cold solder joint in your horizontal deflection circuits or your or in your horizontal output circuit. please be careful due to the fly-back transformer still holds power even unplugged until you discharge it.( ground it out). Hope this helps.

Onkyo digital reciever has poping noise when in dolby sound


I have the same reciever, and had the same problem.  Contact Onkyo, this is a known issue where defective DSP chips were used and manifest problems with a popping / clicking sound when using surround settings.  These receivers also have a Dolby Digital input issue that can cause audio dropouts when watching cable or SAT broadcasts that encode DD using a 'newer' broadcast encoding methods.  Onkyo is covering the cost of that repair for me now, even though the receiver is 5 years old now....

When playing a dolby true hd soundtrack my Onkyo 875 makes a clicking sound every so often like it has run out of buffer memery for the sound. Any help you could give me would be great Thanks


What you are hearing is digital noise that can have many sources. One thing that would help to narrow this down is to try and see a pattern of when the clicking occurs. Is is all the time, or just after the unit has been on for a while? Does the clicking vary with the type of sound? Soft/loud/vocal/music etc?

Thanks,
Dan

LG 47" LCD TV - 47LC7DF Clicking Noise


I was told that these clicking noises (which happen on my Magnavox LCD too) were due to the "power required" at the internal switch. Seems that the power required to immediately turn on the TV is too much for a standalone household outlet, so it "surges" power in a series to get enough there. Hence, the clicking sounds are actually mini power surges to send more power to the internal circuits to turn the TV on.

If your set is like mine, these noises generally stop after a minute or two, correct?

TV will not turn on


Hi, If the clicking noise is metallic, could be a relay switching on/off. What's curious is that once powered on by remote, apparently the clicking doesn't affect the TV, meaning it continuously work. The relay is suppose to turn on or off a function of the TV and apparently it is trying to but there is not such effect since the TV, as I understand from your post, works. The relay can be for the degaussing coil, power supply, over voltage protection. Since this involve a little diagnosis of the electronics, soldering and probably a minor component replacement, an on-site service/repair man would be your best bet. Even if it were a nuisance/minor repair, you can at least get the clicking noise out. Other than you get to get a checkup of the TV and diagnosis of what caused/started the clicking sound in the first place. Hope this be of help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
