Question about Sony DAV-BC150 System

1 Answer

Speakers Crackling and system keeps going to standby.

I have a dav-bc150 sony home theatre system. Its 3-4 years old, we won it in a contest. It was brand new but I am unsure of the purchase date.

Recently it just shut off on us and started flashing standby, until it was unplugged and plugged back in. Also we have a crackling sound in all of the speakers, most of the time. Usually after the system has been on for a while. I have check each speaker individually and have determined it to be a system problem and not a speaker problem. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on how to fix this, or where to go for help.

Re: Speakers Crackling and system keeps going to standby.

It sounds like you may have a problem with the sound pc board. If the system shuts down or goes into a stand by mode, then it means the system is detecting an internal problem and is shutting itself down to avoid any further damage. You may need to have it serviced but that could be a little expensive. You can always buy a used replacement receiver if the speakers and sub is still working good.
Hope that helps.

Sounds like your TV's sound output isn't working. Check all the connections and if that doesn't do it, try hooking up some other sound system to the TV to check that it is working properly.

My speakers have almost constant crackling noises

Hello, there is no chance that you can fix this problem by replacing speaker wires. Resoldering the output stages as well as area around the microprocesor could be the efficient solution. If you need more info please advice.
