Loud static, crackling sound when TV is turned on


I have a Sony Bravia KDL-52W4100 and recently it started making a loud, crackling sound when it is turned on after being off for 4 or 5 hours. In addition, when it is set to an HD channel (We use Comcast) there are lines that cover the screen. (When it is set to a standard definition picture we see the picture.)

The problem goes away after 4 or 5 minutes.

Any thoughts on the cause of the problem?
