Question about RCA D52W20 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Sound Problems I have my tv hooked up with my cable box only - no external speakers etc... The sound on the tv has stopped working with some channels but not all. Also, it sometimes goes out intermittently or there is a loud snap sound (like someone tapping on a microphone)that starts to happen. It is still under warranty but I would like to know what the problem might to to ensure the tech understands in case by chance it behaves properly when he comes out to take a look. Thanks!

Do not know how to wire my sa-w10 speakers together

For surround sound, you need an A/V receiver with 5.1 or 7.1 surround capability. Depending on what kind of receiver you have, the DVD player, satellite/cable box, etc hooks to the receiver, those signals go out to the TV, and the speakers hook to the receiver. The receiver decodes the signal from the cable/satellite box or DVD player and routes it to the appropriate speakers. If the TV program or DVD isn't HD or coded for surround sound, the best you can expect is 2.1 channel stereo sound. OR, you can hook everything (DVD, satellite/cable box) to the TV and run an optical cable from the Digital Output of the TV to the receiver, which is basically the same thing, just a different way to hook everything up. Hope this helps

My rca hdtv model hd52w67 has picture but no sound

The model indicated rarely has sound problems.

General things to check:

If using a cable or sat box is sound muted or turned way down?

In set menu are speakers on or off?

Some versions have a slide switch either on the back or in the menu for internal or external speakers.

Does the set have sound with a DVD etc hooked to a rear input?

If no sound only on a few channels SAP may be on either in the set or a box.

If none of these help it has a audio circuit problem.

Toshiba 36a43 i have picture but no sound. Volume control works but again still no sound.

Things to check:

In menu are speakers (audio area) switched on or off?

If you put sound all the way up and listen right at speaker what if anything do you hear?

If using a cable or sat box is sound turned down on it?

Is sound muted on set or the box (if used)

Do you have sound with a DVD etc hooked via the rear jacks?

A few sets have a slide switch on the rear= internal or external speakers--is it set to internal?

failing all of the above you have a audio circuit problem

I have a rcs hdtv. i have a picture,but no sound. ive tried hooking it up to some external speakers,but still no sound. any suggestions?

first, i wonder what you are trying to watch? a dvd player? a cable box? do you have your cable directly to the tv? if you try a different source, do you get sound?
on the tv, if you go into menu and sound options, did the speakers somehow get turned off?
or, is there a switch at the rear of the tv to allow your tv speakers to act as a center channel? if so it may have been hit and switched off the speaker output. my tv has one located right where all the connections are and i've hit it accidentally a couple times.

Sony 60 in LCD edge LED TV: Hooked up new TV to a cable box - have HD picture but no sound. TV speakers say on. Makes sound when TV channel is changed (static). But nothing when input cable (via HDMI) is...

Your cable box most likely has a setting for audio HDMI such that HDMI sound is turned ON etc. rather than standard audio. Also check the TV settings for HDMI audio being set to ON. This should be a simple fix. HDMI audio usually is just a user setting adjustment and nothing more. Somewhere in your on-screen menus you should find the place to adjust HDMI audio.

Problems with hearing sound from bravia LCD tv through bravia DAV-HDX275 theatre system

The fiber optic port on back on your bravia tv is only for when your using a over the air antenna and watching local atsc channels in your local market. You need to run the fiber optic from your hd cablebox if it has one or your hd sat box if it has one. If you don't have a set top box with the fiberoptic port on it you can use a digital coax cable from the cable or sat box to sound system. The only other way to get sound if you don't have a cable or sat box is to run the red and white rca audio cable from the tv to the sound system and got to the audio setup on tv and turn the tv speakers off and you might have to adjust the audio to fixed instead of variable.
