PSone making crackling noise on HDTVs?
« on: June 27, 2014, 05:20:04 pm »
Hello, everyone! I recently unearthed my old PSone and it seems to work perfectly, except for the fact that there's this horrible crackling noise that almost drowns out all other sound and makes the PSone basically unusable. I thought it was the composite wires, but I tested them with my PS2's composites, which work just fine, and I get the same noise.

Does anyone have any idea what's up? Could it be an internal issue?

Thanks for your time, have a great day! :)

I'm using my PSOne on our 32" HDTV without any video or sound problems.  Have you tried the PSOne on another TV?  Hope this helps.

I did, actually. I tried it on both my parents' TV and mine. I researched a bit online, albeit somewhat fruitlessly, and found it might be a soldering or internal wire issue? It did get banged around a lot, we thought its tray was incapable of closing...

If multiple cables and multiple TVs do the same thing is probably guess the cable port is either loose or it is going bad.  Maybe someone with some repair skills could better troubleshoot?
