If you have another source for the AV receiver like a DVD or blue ray player then switch to it and see if the static goes away. If it does then it's the TV.

check the audio output settings of your components. THey may be set for dolby digital which your receiver can process but your TV can not. Try PCM stereo setting or "other".

Sometimes equipment gets too hot and starts glitching. Try an improve cooling and air circulation. Often standing the thing on one end so it's tall will help keep it cool. See if it goes for longer with better cooling.

I'm getting static from the tv to the speakers


TV's don't drive speakers directly.

Please define the makes/models and exact interconnects you're using.

Static: loud by itself or overlaid on the desired audio?

The second TV on my ViP622 receiver has some audio static. Is there a solution for this?


If this is a new devopment the receiver may be faulty. Try disconnecting the TV 2 line from the back of the receiver and connecting it to TV1 if it has a coax input and place on TV2 channel. If all is clear the issue is in the cabling or hardware and will require a tech visit. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

I have bad static from my Pioneer vsx 49 Elite


sorry no easy solution as it sounds like the output transistors blew out or the emmitter resistors. you will need a service manual and an multimeter to measure the resistors on or around the audio output transistors they are a low value resistor usually around 1 to 2 watts in size. Do not replace any bad , burnt or discolloered resistors around the audio output transistors as if tou do you might just cause more damage to the output transistorsor audio output stage including the audio driver stage of the amp!!!!!!

Extreme distortion/static in music.

Audio fluctuation with volume


It is common theese days to have volume fluxuation while watching TV when viewing a HD show and going to a commercial break it gets ungodly loud, that's from digital to analog variance. However what you describe and the way you describe it leads me to believe its a chip in the receiver. The only way to really know for sure would be to hook up a DVD to your TV input and play a long movie " the godfather" or something like that which is a three hour or so movie and listen for the issue to occur. If it does, you know your receiver needs to be serviced. If it doesn't, swap your cable box or DSS with another one if possible and test again. It will take some time, but it won't cost you anything! Hope this helps. If you still have issues with it, send a response and we can try other things as well.

Sharp bursts of static


phono is the only input that uses a low level input (mag) I bet it has something to do with the input processor.

You should have access to receiver's format from remote or front panel. If the unit was moved around a lot and for a long period, the micro-processor may have locked due to ambient static electricity. Try unplugging unit for seversl hours, then re-try
