Loud Pop,Crackling, Dead Unit

Hi, the other day my unit, which was turned off, made a loud pop and crackling sound, then the standby light went out. And the unit is Dead, no power at all. I took the cover off and no fuses apparent, No burn marks on anything I could see. I could not see the entire board as the unit tray is locked I did not see any burned caps either. Any Suggestions as to what it might be?

What it might (definitely) be is a big repair bill. Alot of mfg's don't put fuses on the amp sections. They use relays.
It's probably a transistor or power amp module that fried.
What initially may have happened is that: You got a power spike and it weakened the internals. Happens to PC power supplies quite a bit.

Panasonic sa-pt860 speakers crackling

Panasonic SC PT860 Manuals
The above link is the owner's manual - it may help.
Here are some other ideas:
Try to find out if the crackling sound is coming from all speakers or just one - you may just have one bad speaker.
If the crackling happens at high volume settings, you may be overdriving the system - you'll just have to turn it down!
Try turning down the bass or the subwoofer level.
Is the crackling present with all sources (TV, cable, DVD, bluetooth)?

Loud popping from speakers

If the unit shuts down after you hear a pop, you have DC voltage on the speaker output line. If it doesn't shut down, is it popping in all speakers, or just some?

I have a ht-tz2222r home cinema system and when it is on stereo or metrix on certain occations the system has a very loud crackling noice through the front speakers can you advice please.

I solved this problem by moving the audio leads from my sky box that went into my cinema surround system and placed them in the audio out from my T.V. into the surround system.I presume that there must be a problem with the Sky box!

Speaker pop

Volume is up to high to begin with or there could be some power source close to the unit that is causing it. Turn down or turn off volume and try to do it. Thsi isn't a broken system it does happen to some units, mine included butr when I do the things I have listed it is much better. It is worse with my better sound systems.

Crackling noise on sound system

This could be a defunct sound driver when it saw the sound speakers. Go to the device manager and go to the multimedia controller and delete it. Restart the machine, it should call for the correct drivers. If it says cannot find drivers, go to, sign up, then query for the correct drivers for your sound

My rear centre speaker wont stop crackling really loud constantly when the surround sound is on, any idea's why this would be happening??

It's a short or a loose connection. Check where it hooks up to the surround system or sub. depending on what kind you have. Or you might have a mouse chewed it or a staple through it check the wire run for issues.
