Short crackle sound emits from speaker during scene changes

The problem is intermittent but frequent. Often when the picture changes quickly, like a new scene or a new commercial, a short crackle sound comes from the speakers. If I mute the sound, the crackle is gone, so it's definitely not a sound created directly by a failing component.

The TV is a Vizio brand, 720p 32" LCD purchased 10-6-09 at Target.

Actually, it is a failing component. Quick scene changes often place demands on the power supply. I would guess that the noise is more prevelant when the scenes change from darker ones to lighter ones. Since this set is so new, request a warranty exchange. This set needs to be serviced. Return it to the place of purchase and ask for a replacement. Usually if the set is less than 30 days old, they just exchange it for you.

Testimonial: "Your point about the crackling occurring mostly when the picture goes from dark to light is spot on. It was clearanced, so I'll try a warranty claim. "

Random intermittant crackling sound from Hotpoint electric oven


This could be insulation on the wiring or more importantly the connecting spot might be frying. In any event, disassemble it and check into it.

Sound fluxuates,crackling sound samsungTX-R3079WH sound goes up and down automaticly


If the sound FLUCTUATES up & down, try turning off the AutoVolume in the sound menu. You didn't say if it's one or all speakers crackling. Crackling is either a speaker or circuitry issue. Adjust the balance away from the speaker that crackles, if it stops, that speaker is probably "fried". If it still crackles, I'd turn off the speakers and run the sound thru a stereo for the quick, cheap fix. My Samsung (10+ years old to be fair) crackles due to a circuit issue but if I SMACK the left side speaker (behind which is the sound board and side panel connectors) it stops for a while. Maddening. I think I broke it squeezing it into the furniture it's in, pressing on the protruding RCA plugs. Dumb design.

Dell Inspiron 5150 not playing sound


Your speakers are frying, hence the crackling sound, as this is a frequent problem owing to the location of the speaker assemblies and the sound output in an area of the system where the ambient heat exhaust vents are located.

I am a bit confused, though, as to why you get no better sound through headphones or external speakers, since this is not usually the case in this frequently cited problem.

One possibility is that not only are the speakers, but the entire sound output assembly.

Warrantee work if available, if not try a shop where they also sell used Dell computers as they will have pulls that could cut your losses.

2 month old ONKYO TX-SR706 speaker circuit problem


This is a problem with the surround sound processing. Effectively the digital signal is not being processed properly. Since this unit is so new, return it and request either an exchange or at least warranty service. The DSP board will likely be replaced.
