Have you checked the lamp? I would start there if you haven't. Take the lamp out and look down in it to see if the filament is cracked or broken. That is definately what it sounds like. I have seen many of these at shop.

Anything that sounds like electrical crackling will be coming from either the lamp or lamp driver/ballast boards or their interconnections. The lamp should be examined first as this is the most likely cause.
