This is definately the sound chip that controls the sounds , stereo , mono , and the stereo sound from any device that might be plugged in
this chip can be replaced , but the repair cost might not be worth it to you , as they charge alot to diagnose the problem on top of the repair cost

Check that the balance is not set all on one channel only in the sound settings menu.

There could be a few issues. It could be the speakers themselves. I believe this tv has an audio out. I would hook it up to a stereo and see if it that improves it. It could also be something internal like the amplifier. You have a couple options but I would just use a stereo for sound. If you still need more assistance let me know. Please take a moment to accept and rate my solution accordingly.
Thanks,
Lee

    Also have you changed the audio settings back to the defaults in the audio menu. Maybe those options have been toyed with If that is not it then you will want to use a stereo or get the tv repaired.
    Thanks,

Poor quality sound - low volume on Netflix. Everything fine on regular TV programmes.


You have to go to the sound mixer on your PC and increase the volume on Internet Explorer, Microsoft Silverlight also.
To find the mixer try clicking on the speaker on the taskbar.

Some channel no sound


Hello Blwas5 hi, If some channels have sound and others none, its either the TV has poor reception or, its the channel's weak signal. check them both or see if your neighbors TV acts like yours. If thy neighbor reception is good, then thy TV has poor reception, you can't do anything to fix that. get another TV with good reception qualities.

I had the same problem.

All I did was unplug the standard cable wire from my tv and used RCA cables to connect my TV to my digital cable box the the Input 1 jack in the back. It also increased the video quality.

Akai model lct2721ad. tv.


Mine does this all the time. It appears to be a factory flaw. The only way around it is to set the channel you are watching to "MONO" and the crackling sound will disappear.
