    I purchased a 50" Philips plasma about 3 weeks ago. When changing the channel i will hear a loud crack or popping sound. Also sometimes when watching a show i will hear a loud cracking sound from the speakers every once in a while. Much louder than the volume of the TV. It is not the cable box since it will do it with the cable feeding directly into the TV. It will also do it when the TV is first turned on. Any suggestions or comments. I still have time to return this TV if it is a problem.
    Thanks for any feedback.

    Is the noise there when you are just watching TV? Is there a fridge/freezer or something that's creating the noise when it turns on/off? Do you have any other cables (scart etc) plugged into the plasma?
    If it does it every time the TV is turned over it does sound as if it will be a faulty set.

    thanks for the reply. .the TV is new and it came with the speakers. they are attached to the side of the TV. the noise also happens when i turn the set on or off... all the time ... only sometimes does it happen in the middle of a program. I have not limited down to a particular channel but i believe it is not related to that. It is not near anything that it would pick up noise from like a frig, or motors, etc.
    very disturbing when it happens..
