Ok. That sounds like malfunctioning speakers. To confirm try connecting headphones or external speakers into the headphones jack and see if you can get sound if yes, then its definitely the speakers. Try it and let me know

    There is a port called audio behind the tv, next to the RGB PC port. That is the headphones jack.

    Confirmed case of faulty tuner circuits. which means you will have to replace the SSB to fix it. Will cost you around 100-125$.

    Its the main signal board with the tuner circuits. The problem you have described indicates that the digital audio tuner circuit has failed . You should take off the back cover of the set to be able to see it. It is located at the center of the set, usually covered by a metal plate.

    Ok. Take off the back cover of the set, and remove the metal plate at the center, covering the main board. Get me the part number thats on the board(usually on a label or under it) so that I can tell you where you can get it from.

If you have lost your freeview channels & your picture has been breaking up (pixelating / freezing) etc as well as crackle on the audio, then I would suspect you check your antenna, it could be your incoming signal is weak which would give you these problems.

Sound will go to loud static noise, but picture is fine

it sounds like you need someone to look at it for you so fix it under warrenty if you can. Maybe buy a set top box and source your sound from there. also buy 5.1 surround (if you like as its a excuse to upgrade) for your speakers.

Vizio makes loud static noise, picture goes fuzzy.

You should check your home wiring and grounding. Also be aware of anything that has recently been turned on when this happens. Anyone using a microvwave, cell phone, or other appliance that might be causing the interference.
