Re: Crackling Sound

I just bought a samsung 550 50 inch plasma and hear the crackling noise from the TV. The reciever is using hdmi out to the TV. When I turn the TV on after it cools down I hear this noise then I turn the TV off and then on and it goes away. I just bought the TV and Bestbuy will be replacing it this week. I hope that solves the problem.

When I turn my tv on my speakers work for apprx 5 minutes than start crackling very loudly then go out.What could cause this ?

Hi, My samsung dlp 46 tv was making a loud crackling and popping sound from the speakers, I turned OFF all the volume
control on my tv from the menu the srs, the auto tune volume, the internal volume which, is the main one which silences the crackling sound immediately! But, you must have surround sound and play the tv volume through your surround sound and wa laaaa, it WORKS! The tv may eventually stilll go out before or if I decide to have it fixed. It is about 3 years old.

TV made a big popping sound, and then a crackling

Hi,do you hear any strange noises? If you hear clicking or like wanting to turn on it could be the board that powers the lamp it's called the ballast.Here's the instructions to replace it : That crackling sound could be of the color wheel:The color wheel is a rotating disc that has a gamma of colors it spins at high rpms.The light of the lamp goes through it to create the colors on your tv.When it starts to go bad you will get color distortion ,black and white picture and sometimes you will hear humming noises. But if you don't hear any strange noises,tv is around 6000 hrs,2-4 yrs it could be time to replace the lamp.The lamp you need is BP9601073A you can find original here: .Have a blessed one!

No picture (black screen); making popping/crackling sound

there is a possibility that the semiconductor in power supply side damaged due to electrical surge. more likely the STR IC of Diodes.

Akai PT5598HD 55 in. Rear Projection

Something like this Id have someone who knows there way around electronics, a qualified tech or someone you trust really well :-) Does the crackling affect the TV picture at all ? My first guess would be dust and or dampness on the audio components. Sometimes this can conduct electricity across small pc chips and reak all sorts of havoc. I had an old Tomas electric organ once, and it actually caught fire because two speaker wires were rubbing together and eventually wore thru the insulation and shorted out, but it was also making alot of crackling and static noises. Try raising and lowering the volume low to high and high to low and see if the crackling noises gets worse. Some audio amplifiers put out quite a bit of power, so I wouldnt trust leaving the TV on without a fire extinguisher handy.
