Question about Vizio P4221 Television
I bought a new 42" Vizio. I connected using component cables and audio cables directly from my HD Cable box. No surround sound is being used.
The sound was fine for about 4 hours and then it started cracklin. This was on every channel and at every volume. Being that the TV was four house old I returned the TV and brought a new one home.
The new TV has run for about two weeks. Now the problem has returned. The speakers crackle on all channels and at every volume. It doesn't matter if the TV has been on for 30 seconds or 5 hours.
Is it possible for the problem to be with the cable box? Or just bad luck with two bad TVs? Right now I am not interested in buying a surround sound system.
I've seen the same problem, went thought a couple of cable boxes. Turned out to be an AC line problem. Try plugging the TV into a different out, maybe in another part of the house.

I found the problem to the jamie question I posted. Had to disconnect the tv speakers in order for the surround sound to work. Now there's a spot for the video game hook ups. thanks
