My Samsung HLP4663WX will intermittently just have a loud popping sound. Sounds like something is cracking in the back of it....but there are no problems with my TV otherwise. Just that loud sound...I'm curious to find out what it is? Should I be worried? Anyone know anything???

Re: Loud Cracking/Popping Sound
Any other symptoms? You may be just hearing the occasional sound of static being bled off, or, if the set is not working properly, the sound of the high voltage section trying to compensate...accordianman

I would guess you have a High Voltage Leak at the Anode Lead Cap where it Mounts to the CRT. This is not a area to mess with You are better off calling a professional to fix it. It may be a little difficult to confirm if it is a intermittent problem.
Hope this helps,
The red light means that the prjection bulb needs to be replaced. They ony last about two years depending on hours of use. The low popping sounds as well as fan noise is normal for the Sony projection TV. You can Google the owners manual by entering the brand,model etc. and ask for the owner's manual. I had to go to several sites but eventually found it.
It sounds like the popping noise you heard was a capacitor blowing its top somewhere in the tv. Sorry I cannot be more specific but if you manage to find out where this cap has gone also check any resistors near it as they can be also damaged. If you cant do this call out a competant technician. Good luck.
Turn down the volume and see if you still hear it,a loud pop or snap could be high voltage call your servicer in your area ASAP
while its under warranty and have him check the high voltage circuits for a intermittenting pop or snap.And have the model # ready!! Good Luck!
