Question re popping noises

by jopapa / March 2, 2007 8:17 AM PST

I have a Sony 40" Bravia (KDL-40S2010) that's about a month old. It was working perfectly until last night when the speakers started making popping noises. Sounds occurs every few seconds no matter what channel. Anyone have any idea what this ii? Thanks.

Turns out that it was my HD box. I called Sony and they solved the problem. When I plugged the coaxial straight into the TV, the popping noise went away. So I just went to Cablevision and swapped HD boxes. My new box has an HDMI connection, rather than just an output for component cables. Then, based on advice from this helpful forum, I went to the Apple Store and got a 6 ft. HDMI to HDMi cable for $19.99. About $30 cheaper than the Radio Shack brand (to say nothing of $80 cheaper than Monster cables). So all is well. Thanks again.
