Default Sound problem on my Olevia HDTV

I bought an Olevia 227V LCD HDTV a few months ago after a friend had recommended it to me. I just wanted something cheap and decent looking and it definitely does the job. I'm having a problem with the sound though. It seems it makes a loud popping noise everytime a (loud-ish and sudden) sound plays. Example: When I'm watching a movie or playing a game and a sound plays like a gunshot or a menu beep, the first time it does it the speakers will pop. If it does it twice in a row without much of a pause in between, it doesn't do it the second time the sound is made. It's both weird and somewhat annoying.

I first thought it was just a problem with my TV, but I checked it out on my friend's TV (which is the same one as mine) and it does it too.

Needless to say, there is some kind of defect within that specific model. I contacted Olevia about it and they of course denied it and said that I would need to send my TV back to them and replace it. So, no help from them.

Does anyone know anything about this? Is there anything that can be done about this? Maybe I can replace the speakers with different ones? I don't know anything about this stuff, so help me out if you can. Thanks.

Have you tried re-routing the source to your AV reciever?
My equipment:
Panasonic TC-P50X1
Onkyo TX-DS494 (Time to upgrade)
Panny DMP-BD35 Blu Ray player
Motorolla DCT 2000
Infinity speakers

Default Sound Trouble on my 532

I have the same problem. I bought a set of speakers and routed them through the rca red and white out jacks and the problem is fixed. Since I ran it through the TV I can only guess that it has to be the speakers that Olevia installed into these TV's.

If your Tv doesn't have any RCA out then try the headphone plug. Radio shack sells a adaptor from the headphone to RCA female.

If you have Direct TV or some other reciever then run it and any other DVD, etc through a sound reciever. You can use a old one or buy a new one. Don't have to spend much. I got mine on the clearence rack at Walmart for $15.00. No remote, original price was 39.98

Hope that helps, I know that popping sound was driving be nuts.
