Question about Zenith E44W46LCD 44" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Loud audio pop

Overall, am very happy with this TV; vivid picture; clear surround sound, great features. While watching cable TV, about every 10 minutes, without warning, the set makes a really loud, static-y pop sound - just one pop, then it's ok for another 10 minutes or so. At low sound volume, I've learned to ignore it, but for anyone not used to it, or expecting it, the sound can make them jump off their seat. Sounds as if lighting has zapped the set. Pop occurs regardless of volume setting, but is louder as volume setting is higher. Have noticed that it does not occur while playing a DVD, so I don't think it's the surround speaker system. Haven't attempted any other diagnostic / on-screen setting adjustments. As it is, can't invite friends to watch TV, as we don't have a de-fibrillator in the house. Any clues for cause? fix? Thanks Elwyn Peterson Minnesota

This is the type of problem that can drive a repair person or shop mad! The reason is that alot of times when a set is moved, the snapping from the High voltage does not occour. Your problem is one that deals with alot of dust and dirt in or around the High voltage block assy. And or a problem with one of the Picture tubes and or the High voltage leads going to the tubes, or a high voltage transformer that is going bad and is cracked. If you do not know the high voltage safety factors, you should not attempt to repair this set, as there is enough High voltage in this set to grab hold of you and shake you and to toss you to the other side of the room OR KILL you. My friend, this is a repair job for a pro to do! The longer you wait, though, to get the problem corrected, the more it will most likly cost you to repair. Good luck and if you get the set fixed or even if you do not , Please post back and let us know what you did to fix your problem?

Rca model rtd3266 won't produce aux audio through the tv even though we have hooked up the red and white cables. It only playes the surround sound when you watch the dvd.


I believe you have misunderstood something. The audio output from your TV is stereo. Your RCA system produces surround output from your TVs stereo input.

Can't get surround sound for regular television. DVD sound is great but nothing on the TV channels either regular or HD


Only a digital audio source will produce surround sound.

What's the audio source you're using for TV sound? It shouldn't be the TV, but what IT's watching, like the cable/sat box.

Get a surround sound system. Run the video to av1, and then the red, and white audio cables to your surround sound aux. You will get the clean picture and great sound.

Humming sound when watching tv,but not when watching dvd's


It wounds like you are getting interference from you tv to the receiver. You can try a few different things here.

1. Connect the tv output into another input on you receiver to see if it isnt the channel on the receiver.

2. Try a different set of cables between the tv and receiver. Faulty cables can give you problems.

3. Connect the cable from you tv to a different device. (another dvd vcr blue ray etc.) This will tell you if its the receivers or the tv.

Samsung HT Q 100 surround sound only works with DVD


Look on the subwoofer. Does it have an upmix switch? If not, you cannot upmix the stereo to all speakers. You can also check your TV menu options to see if it has the upmix feature (or similar).

How can i get the surround sound to work.


You need to get an HDMI cable going from your Cable Box to the Surround Sound system. If you are low on HDMI ports, you can RGB cables for Video.

Your quote: " I have a HDMI cable plugged into the TV and the Cable box." move that cable to Surround Sound and Cable Box, and use RGB cable or HDMI to go from Cable box to TV!

If your Surround Sound has no HDMI, use a Fibre Optic to go Cable to Surround. It will work Great!

Good Luck!

YAMAHA HTR 5660 MAKES POPING SOUND WITH LOUD NOISE AND BRIGHT LIGHT


Looks like you've got the best connection available - initially I thought it might have something to do with decoding the prologic signal from the analog input, but obviously not! And since you've got the audio separate from the video it is unlikely there is any interference from the video signal in the cable. Have you tried a different DVD player (I reckon that is most likely)? Also try connecting the video signal DIRECTLY from DVD to the TV if you aren't already doing so (you are anyway aren't you - the HTR 5660 doesn't have HDMI out does it?) Finally, if you have some spare cables around, try changing them - see if you get the same response when using component video cable instead of HDMI.

Sony surround sound hookup


In short, the answer is: Hook up all three to each other. I have a Samsung DLP HDTV, and I was trying to hook up a Sony DAV-HDX500 home-theater system and a Comcast HD set-top box, but I found that the Sony user guide is helpful only for setting up the speakers. Most of what it had to say about HDMI and getting the TV sound or cable sound to go through the speaker system was wrong (or, at least, it didn't work for me). So, here's what I did. I connected Component video cables (Y/Pb/Pr out) from the Cable box to the TV (Y/Pb/Pr in), audio cables from the Cable box (audio out) to the Sony system ("SAT/Cable" audio in), and an HDMI cable from the Sony system (HDMI out) to the TV (HDMI in). This allows me to 1) watch DVDs with surround sound through the TV's HDMI source (when the "DVD" format is selected on the Sony system), 2) watch cable with surround sound through the TV's Component source (when the "SAT/Cable" format is selected on the Sony system), and 3) watch cable WITHOUT the surround sound, as I did before I ever had the Sony system. One item of note: When watching a non-HD channel with the surrond sound on, the audio is slightly out of synch with the video; thankfully, there's no such problem on HD channels. Anyway, I hope this helps. It drove me crazy for two days straight!
