Crackling noise TV

Hello

After a while of having the TV on, there is this popping / crackling / robotic noise that begins. This is quickly fixed by turning the box on and off, but I’m just curious to what this issue is caused by so it can stop happening. 

it’s not the TV as we have a games console also connected and that never has this issue, and it doesn’t matter whether it’s virgin tv, or apps such as YouTube, Netflix etc (the apps on the virgin box and not through the Tv itself) 

any suggestions?

Re: Crackling noise TV

It could just be the 'handshake' between the TV and 360 box via its HDMI cable. Have you checked the cable is fitted all snug? I've experienced something similar, but very rarely.

Yes checked that, also tried in different HDMI ports to make sure it’s not just a dodgy hdmi slot, we also have a box upstairs in the main bedroom that one has not had the same issue

Re: Crackling noise TV

Hi CallumLj,

Have you tried a different HDMI cable? Or swapped the boxes around to see if the fault follows the box?

Hi molly,

we’ve still had the issue, a different cable didn’t change anything, but as I mentioned above turned the box on and off generally fixes it right away. There’s also no kind of time frame of this happening it seems to just happen randomly

Re: Crackling noise TV

Do you have more than one box so you could try newapollo's suggestion of swapping boxes to see if the fault follows the box.
