Hello,

Assuming you are not attempting to play it at ear shattering levels, this may be due to an alignment problem in the IF/audio demodulator, a bad audio IC or other circuitry, bad connection, or a defective speaker.

If your TV has an earphone or audio line out jack, try this to see if it is clear. If so, then your problem is in the final audio amp or speaker(s).

If only one channel of a stereo TV is affected, it is almost certainly the audio amp or speaker for that channel. Interchange connection to the two speakers temporarily and see if the problem moves.

If the problem is at all intermittent - try gently whacking the TV - then it is likely a bad connection - either a cold solder joint or a dirty or tired IC socket.

The audio amplifiers in newer TVs are almost always ICs and replacements are usually readily available. If the IC is in a socket, remove the IC, clean the pins and socket contacts and reinstall it. Sometimes, the contacts on old socket lose their springiness and do not provide solid connections. Such a socket will need to be replaced.

If the set uses discrete transistors, it s also possible for one of these to become noisy.

If your TV is fairly old - 10 years or so - this may be an alignment problem requiring tweaking of a coil in the sound IF. See your service manual. It may be possible to have similar problems with newer TVs but this is relatively rare.

There could also be bad electrolytic capacitors, probably in the power supply area. Even though you might think this would result in hum and there is none (even when there is no audio in the program or the sound is turned down) dried up caps can result in distorted sound that may sound like a sort of clipping. An ESR meter is best for testing (with power off!) but carefully jumpering known good caps across suspect ones (again with power off, then turn on the set and check), will eventually find the bad one(s).

2010 VW CC factory stereo amp popping sound


If the amplifier itself is making the popping sound I suggest you disconnect it immediately, as it could be an electrical short within the amp. If the popping sound is actually coming from the speakers, it could be due to a crossed wire, blown amp channel, or blown speaker. If you posses the technical know-how, you can test the amp channel and speaker by connecting a different speaker to the channel responsible for the popping sound. If the new speaker makes the same popping noise then it is most likely a blown channel. I hope this helps =)

Bose radio comes on but no sound in my 2004 chevy avalanche.Sometimes even with radio off you hear a popping sound come from speakers. thanks


First Visually check all your fuses. Does rig have amp for stereo by any chance? It sounds like amp is bad and/or fuse is blown. Amp is wired between radio and speakers, and a shorted amp would make crackling in speakers when radio is OFF

There is no sound coming from the speakers on the SC-HT900 dvd home theater sound system. It used to make a loud pop sound but then would still work. Now it does not make any sounds. The dvd will play...


May be a fuse inside blown , if it makes a loud pop that can take out a fuse, If you find one blown , replace with same type and try machine .Dont replace with higher rated fuse though , if it keeps blowing. Try using headphones and if you get sound , may be speakers.

My PC makes a Pop sound every so often.Why and how to stop it? Compaq dc5000 SFF model


Is this sound coming from the tower case or from your speakers?
If it is coming from the case, can you tell if one of your cdrom drives is spinning up or if it is the hard drive?
If it is coming from the speakers what happens if you go to control panel / sounds and audio devices / sounds
select start windows and you should see windows startup.wav as the sound . Click the arrow (play sound) does it make the windows sound only or does it make the whoosh too?
Scroll through the sounds listed in the dropdown
Locate Windows XP balloon.wav and play that , is that the pop you hear?

Look through the sounds listed with speakers by them (the sounds which are enabled)
Try playing each and see if you can identify which one makes the sounds you hear.

It sounds like you are getting two notification sounds such as a hardware fail wave and error wave


Check in control panel => system => hardware => device manager
Are there any yellow ? or ! or red X items?

Go to control panel => admin tools=> event viewer
Look under system for any red error messages.

I have a powered sub for my surround sound and every now and then its starts crackling and popping. i can make it stop by playing with the volume knob or even tapping it sometimes. my old sub did the same...


Does the crackling and popping sound comes only from the sub, or from the other speakers too? Try switching of to check. I think that it is problem on volume control potentiometer. In that case all the speakers must sound crackling and popping. If the problem is only in the sub you have to check its connections.

turn on the amp and you know that the amp is good and you hear nothing
1. paralell wiring on speakers that are the wrong impedance very often will silence speakers to a eternal sleep along with that amp.
2. 4 ohm speakers mistaken for 2 ohm and are 8 ohm speakers mistaken for 4 ohm, the amp sees this load and it causes a overload on either side of the amp internal filter
( that's what makes the "pop sound") amp pops inside, literally makes a "pop" sound
you get a no sound

One speaker making a popping sound


try switching the popping speaker to the other side and see if it still pops if it does then you have probably damaged the driver in the speaker if it doesnt pop then the problem probably is in the receiver

Speaker popping when computer is on or off.


I use to get that same sound but only when I first booted up.
Is this only happening when you have the volume up and does it happen if you turn down the sound all the WAY not off
Your MIC could be enable and on boost level.
If you sound is popping from the music or other source is it from all the speakers???
I can try and help

Sound problem


Make sure all speakers that are hooked up sound ok. If any of them sound lower then the others or sound distorted you may have a speaker with a partially shorted voice coil. If speaker or speakers pop when power is first applied you may have a grounded speaker that should not be grounded. Each speaker wire rides on 6vdc and if any speaker sees a ground you will have 6v across voice coil which would explain any popping noise when first turned on and radio may play for awhile then overheat. be sure speakers are 4 ohm min per ch otherwise amp will run to hot. Just a few Guesses
