Question about Sony DAV-BC150 System

1 Answer

My speakers have almost constant crackling noises

I have owned this system for 2-3 years. Several months ago, I began to hear crackling noises coming from all the speakers. It is not constant, but usually occurs every few seconds, and alternates from one speaker to the next, most commonly from the front center channel. Most of the time, however, the speakers will not start crackling until the system has been on for a couple hours. It occurs when watching tv, a dvd, playing a video game, etc. Is there any chance that this can be fixed by replacing speaker wire? I don't want to get a new system until the HDMI 1.3 receivers are available.

    Thank you for your quick response. Unfortunately, I have no idea what your solution entails. I assume that you are referring to parts within the main receiver unit and not the speakers themselves though.

    One additional question... what could likely cause this problem? I never put my volume too high. Is it just normal wear and tear or is the quality of the system inferior?

    I also have an Sony DAV-BC150, I have constant cracking in speakers in all modes: AF, FM, Autio and Video, called SOny, they said it was outside interference (Radios, Power Strip, Etc)

    I have the same problem, the speakers crackle. The problem comes and goes, but recently it does not appear to be going away.

    Same problem here. Constant crackling. Sounds like an old vinyl record. This problem occurs in every mode of use (SAT, DVD, Radio), but is much more pronounced in DVD mode.

Hello, there is no chance that you can fix this problem by replacing speaker wires. Resoldering the output stages as well as area around the microprocesor could be the efficient solution. If you need more info please advice.

    Yes, this problem is in the main unit.
    Let us say that this error belongs to normal wear and tear category.

    Best regards,

My car stereo all the wires are hooked up correctly but no sound will come out of the speakers (we have looked at 3 separate diagrams that say we have the wires hooked up right) but its a 1994 ford escort...

look its easy, take a 9 volt battery and pull your radio back out but only disconnect what you think is your speaker wires then 1 pair at a time ie.purple and purple/black touch 1 on the + and the other on the - you will hear a crackling noise in the speaker that those 2 wires go to.

The sound on my laptop has been fine up until a couple of days ago, it makes an anoying crackling sound through both internal speakers and my headphones an i know my headphones are fine,???? help me please

There are several reasons why you could suddenly be getting a crackling noise. My best guess is you have the laptop near some kind of magnetic source - maybe a cell phone? My Boost mobile phone would do this to my speakers. Is this possibly the cause?

Samsung AV-R720 - front right speaker crackles

THIS RECEIVER IS JUNK. I had the same problem with my receiver and Samsung gave me a new unit as it was under warranty. 8 months later the replacement which was brand new did the same thing. Samsung tells me it is my problem now. I should have demanded another unit. the best advice I have is not to buy this product. Samsung won't help you when it breaks and it will break. Nobody seems to know how to fix it.......

Can not hear sound


Try going to and entering your Service Tag. Then click on drivers and downloads and download and install the audio driver that they currently recommend for your machine. Sounds like a driver problem and something that wasn't set properly after the computer was reset.

Noise when changing the volume and connecting speaker to anything.

firstly check the cable, some times it may in loose contact
otherwise any radiation equipment is located near by the amplifier,
sol. replace the location of the amp. and check cable loose contact

other wise
it is due to its amplifier IC problem, it is weak due to over load signal, or temperature of IC make leakage
sol.replace IC

Horrible noise coming from subwoofers

It is not the deck that is a load of crap.... I install radios all the time and never had that problem.. You had some idiot work on your audio and he did something wrong. Now my first question is if you have an amp that was later added or put in at the same time. Allot of the time they wire the rca's and the speaker wires in utilizing the harness adapter. Duh,,,, right... Second, they made their own ground which consisted of them tapping into metal under the dash... now think about this that winding noise is probrably from the stereo being grounded to the same place as everything else in your car when they should have used a factory ground.. My suggestion is you paid for it... Make those **** fix what they did until they get it right if they keep fucking up start demanding free shit.... your time is being wasted on their fuck up take what ever you can from those assholes...
