Phillips HTS 3440

I have a issue with my Phillips HTS 3440DVD HOME THEATER SYSTEM. It was working fine until we recently had a bed lightning storm. Ever sense then everything will work fine except for the sound. When you try to turn up volume it starts to make a popping sound from the speakers. Not sure what to do. I've looked inside the receiver and I don't see anything that looks like it was damaged or swollen or burnt looking. Please help. Thanks

Re: Phillips HTS 3440

If the popping sound is only on the front or rear speakers, I would suspect a bad audio output IC. If it is all speakers then possibly the power supply is at fault. A tech will need to do some diagnostics.

Thanks I will check to see if it's anything you've explained to me. Thanks again for your help and time
