1996 chevy blazer radio turns on but there is no sound

The radio in my 1996 chevy blazer stopped working suddenly. The radio will trun on but no sound will be coming out. The sound used to come back on if I just turned the radio on and off a few times, but now there is no sound at all no matter ho many times I turn the sterero on and off. I mean out of all the speakers in the car none of them have any sound. I tried looking behind the bottom art of the dash but all I see are wires taped together and I can't figure out what goes where. I tried try the fuses but that didn't work. Any Help please?

    Weird, I have the same problem with my 96 Blazer. This model seems to be falling apart slowly after I hit 100,000 miles. Now the radio is dead. Not sure how to have it fixed or to just let it go.

I have a strong feeling that the head unit "radio" has finally gone bad. You describe a situation, in which you have to turn it on and off, to get it to work. Typically if the sound comes out of all speakers, after doing that, then the speakers were never broken. The head unit itself should be replaced. I hope this helps.

    What if you replaced the head unit and hooked everything up correctly and then everything comes on but the screen on the radio it will even still take a disc, on a 96 blazer.

The car stops suddenly, after slowly losing power. Started up again, to move off to side of road. No longer started after that. checked oil, it was milky looking, so we changed it. checked the battery, it...

sounds like the head-gasket blew, and the fuel pump may have gone out. I would really have to be there to know for sure. I guess you need to see if you have spark, and if fuel is coming to the engine, may have had a fuse or two go out, also. Good Luck Tim
