I've had my KDF60WF655 for two years now and it has been excellent in every way. Recently however it seems the TV has started to settle and it makes popping sounds when either on or off. These popping sounds are not audio related, they are similar to what you would hear if you pushed or pulled on the TV from different sides. The sound can be reproduced most accurately by pulling forward on the top of the screen. The sounds are clearly being made by the plastic TV housing or structural plastic inside the TV and there are no physical signs of any problems.
Have any other KDF60WF655 owners experienced these same sounds? Thanks in advance - Aaron

It sounds like your radio may have bit the bullet. I suggest replacing the radio with an aftermarket unit.

The popping sound could be UV joints. But hard to tell if one cannot hear them. Worse case scenario, transmission going. The squeaking sound is probably your struts. The upper strut bearings are probably worn, and that could mean the struts are worn too. Depends on the mileage on your vehicle. The springs twist when under stress and this is what the upper bearing is for. In good shape, it would not make any sounds.
try switching the popping speaker to the other side and see if it still pops if it does then you have probably damaged the driver in the speaker if it doesnt pop then the problem probably is in the receiver
Is the popping noise coming from the speakers? If it is, lowering the volume to zero does not stop the popping from the speakers, then you have an audio output failure. If the sound is not from the speakers, you probably have a high voltage leak. If this is the case, are you in a moist environment or using the set near a window??
Any other symptoms? You may be just hearing the occasional sound of static being bled off, or, if the set is not working properly, the sound of the high voltage section trying to compensate...accordianman
