Samsung PS50P91FD crackling noise

I recently purchased a Samsung PS50P91FD 50 in plasma and when turned on after approx 15 minutes it makes a crackling noise from all around the front of the screen. Sounds like the front plastic cover?
I think it may be heat related? Is there a way to fix this? A Samsung tv technician came around and said it was the first time he encountered it and that there was nothing he could do.He said it was a physical problem. He opened the unit and tightened all screws but the problem sounds like it has worsened. I opened the unit and loosened the screws but the noise still persists. This is the second tv as the retailer i bought it from exchanged the first one as it had the same problem. Any help please?

    I also have this problem with my 52" plazma Samsung. My Hitachi does not. Wife works at the cable company and said that the cable box will sometimes crackle. You may try this but mine seems to be in the case. I tried it muted and with the box off and still get this crackling. Stan in Lex.

    I have the exact same problem.  My 52" Plasma Samsung sometime cracks and sometimes doesn't.  Does anyone have a fix or know what the problem is?  Annoying.

Try loosening the mounting screws in the rear. From what I understand, there is excessive metal on metal causing this noise. ( heat related). I removed all the screw and it seems a little better. Sometimes I want to put my foot through it. I'll never get a Samsung plasma again!

Why would our Samsung MN HL 850 86W make a crackling noise after it warms up? It sounds like the cracking of a fire. What could it be?


Your lamp ballast is going bad. Might last a few more months, but eventually it will have to be replaced. Bulb will also likely have to be replaced at same time, but try the ballast first.

Samsung Plasma 42" TV - 2006


Hi, this is quite a common problem for plasma screens and LCD screens. The fluroscent backlight is more than likely faulty and would need replacing. The best thing to do is to take it to a service centre because there are no user servicable parts inside the plasma.

Flickering


I would suggest to call Samsung to get the Plasma repair under manufacturers warranty. The flickering will not go away until the hardware failure is corrected.
Good Luck.

Panasonic 50 inch plasma


You should call for warranty service. If the set is very new try to get it exchanged.

There are some very heavy duty power supplies and many high power matrix drivers used in Plasma sets.

The description sounds like the noises are very loud. It is normal with any of these TV sets, if you put your ear right up to the back of the set at the vent holes you will hear some noises. These would be some acoustic harmonics from the power supplies and related circuits.

I am wondering if it is possible that there is something that is becoming less stable. If the set is working very well without any failure, so-far this is a very good sign. Before it gets to be a problem, I would have this checked.

On many models of these sets, they use fans for cooling specific areas. A bad fan can cause noise.

Need more info on the unit.
Model, Serial # and Version # on side of unit. It sounds like you either have powersupply problems or cold solder joints in the power supply. Resoldering board may solve your problems.
