Samsung PS42P2S 42" plasma Sound problem

My tv has recently started making a crackling noise when I turn it on. It seems to be getting progressively worse. I have tested the speakers and they are fine. Any advise would be appreciated.

How did you tested your speaker and how did you know it was fine? If your speakers are fine then its most likely your Samsung TV main board is defective. A main board is a key component in your TV that has connectors for HDMI and other key plug in for audio and image. Make sure you look up your TV model/serial number on the back label if you are going to order a new main board online beside seeking support from a certified technical company.

Seek professional help...unfortunately it sounds like a couple of capacitors got blown on the circuit board. Generally electronics start to get vocal before they commit suicide. Hopefully its not terminal but expect it.
