Crackling/popping noise from speakers

by vmoney02 / November 10, 2012 9:00 AM PST

I would have posted this in a thread I saw earlier, but I didn't know how to.

Any who...

I have a Samsung HLS4676SX/XAA. I tried live chat but I can't seem to get any resolution. If I hook ANYTHING up to the TV I get this noise. I've tried to just use my Onkyo receiver and nix the internal speakers, but it seems like the TV has stopped outputting anything to the receiver as well. Any help would be greatly appreciated. The noise usually starts after the TV has been on about 10 minutes. I saw some talk of a reset using the "mute" sequence, but I have no idea what to do once I get into that menu. PLEASE HELP.

HLS4676SX/Xaa BP94-02291A Crackling Noise FIX

I know this is an old thread but I just fixed this same problem on my TV.
Try replacing capacitor C1131 on the main PCB. I used a through hole 100uF 16V cap. It's been working fine. I used a heat gun and freeze spray to find the bad cap.

I know yours is old now too, but taken a shot in the dark. Can you be more specific about the cap you used?
