Hello. I am new to this forum and I have a question. Every time I turn on my AW16G, there is a loud crackling noise coming out of my speaker set up that sounds kind of like popcorn. This has been happening for quite some time but it never seems to be a problem. The noise goes away if I let the machine warm up for a while before using it... usually after about 5 or 10 minutes. So I have gotten into the habit of turning on the unit first thing in the morning if I know I am going to be recording that day in order to give it time for the crackling noise to disappear. The machine has never given me any other problems or not worked properly as a result. I was just wondering if anyone else here has this problem or has experienced this problem and if anyone knows what the solution might be. Thanks.

Hi and welcome to the forum,

sure you have a AW and not a popcorn machine? :lol:

What kind of speakers have you connected to the AW? Does the same crackling appear if you use the headphone out? Can you try other speaker to check if it is not coming from speakers?

Hi gk and welcome to the forum. Sounds like a bad or dirty connector. It's a bit greasy maybe. When it gets warm it won't bother the contacts that much. I would definitely try what Blackbeer suggests. It will tell you wether or not the source is inside the G.

Might be the oscillator. Just kidding. Actually I would recommend checking all your connection. Try headphones and see if it still happens. Unplug everything and then turn on the G. See if you hear anything.

I have the AW16G hooked up to a small Sony stereo system. I know that it is not the speakers causing the problem though because I can also experience the same problem using headphones through the headphone jack on the back of the AW16G and the speakers only make this sound when the AW16G is being used and not when I am playing a CD or listening to the radio on the stereo.

In that case the problem is most likely to be in the G obviously, except for when something's wrong with the electricity. Have you tried plugging it into another wall outlet of a different group? Or, to make sure, take the G with you to someone elses house and see if the problem persists.
