Periodic crack from speakers when online

  lowpin 23:20 09 Dec 2003

When I'm online, I get a pair of noisy cracks from the speakers every few minutes. i.e One crack followed by another a second later, then the same pattern repeated a few minutes later. Anyone suggest what's going on ?

Possibly electrical interference. Have you got something in the house that turns on and off regularly, such as the central heating?

Could be something simple like a fridge as well.My speakers do that as well due to them being next to a bar fridge - very convenient!!

It could even be electrical interference eminating from a neighbour's property.

I have a similar problem with an intermittent short burst of interference picked up on a portable wireless or my hi-fi system tuned to an FM station.

It's nothing that's connected with anything in my house and I can only assume it's being picked up from outside my property.
