Question about Zenith H20F50DT TV

Open Question

Volume control On page 33, the manual says or I understand it to say that I can program the maximum level of the volume. I have pressed the adjust button for 8 seconds, etc. and I still can't figure it out. Can I do this. As we have it in our medical center, there are alot of people who are starting to complain that the volume is too load. We try to control this with communication, but we need to do something more proactive. Is there a way to program a maximum volume, if so, how????

Some TV has a hotel mode, try checking in Menu maybe your TV is in Hotel mode thus preventing you to maximize the sound or volume.

SOURCE: How do I unlock the volume control?

I found this solution to my similar problem:
(solution #3 ... hold down the menu button on the tv set itself until the menu goes away... then hit 9-8-7-6-ENTER on the remote to enter the [probably very dangerous] service menu... you can use the select button on the set itself to "scroll" through the semi-cryptic options... the min and max volume options were pretty clear)

SOURCE: No Volume. Mute is not on. Volume control is at

If there is no volume in your TV, and mute fuction si in off position, and the picture is ok. there are two possibilities. The first one is, speaker of your TV is damaged. The second one is audio output Ic in your TVs inner circut board failed.
You just open your TV taking after every prcautions when we take before working with an electrical equipment. Keep children away from you, and let an adult beside you. Plug out your TVs mains chord out of wall socket, and never use a matal chair or a chair fabricated with metal. Do wear a rubber or plastic shoes, and not try to work with bare foot.
At first be sure whether the speaker is out or not. It can be tested without opening your TV. I suggests these, keeping in mind that your TVs picture is Ok. If not the problem may differ. Keep your ear very near to the speaker side of your TV, and swith it on with mains supply, and listen there is any sound or just a "thumb" sound is heard from the speaker. If there is no "thumb" sound, surely the speaker is damaged. Replacing it with same type and impedence [ie 4 ohms, 8ohms, 16ohms etc, will be marked on its magnet], will solve your problem.
If there is no sign or any sound, or just a "Hum' sound is prodced, the audio output Ic of your TV is damaged, or it is not getting the proper supply voltage to the respective supply pin. If there is a "Hum' sound produced from speaker, it is clear that your TVs audio Ic gets voltage, but it has damaged.
To repace it, you just follow, the two wires to your TVs speaker. It will go to the main board of a sub board which audio Ic is fitted. Normally this Ic will be screwed into a metal heatsink to runout the heat generated from it while working. Just desoder it, unscrew and take it out. Go for the same type and number. "Insist on same type and number. never try to use any substitutions, as it may effect the quality of sound". Solder it to the point. That is all.
Wish you success
If you have any further doubts, report to Fixya. They will send me alerts. Ok

Panasonic CT 27 SL - 13 GL how to connect external speakers

This TV is set up to connect to an external amplifier which that controls the speakers. It has an analog audio output which means you need an RCA audio cable (2 RCA plugs (red and white) on each end. You can't directly connect a set of speakers. The audio output jacks at between the antenna in and the video inputs. Then you need to enter the menu and enter the Audio submenu. Go to the Speakers item. Turn the TV speakers to off and fixed audio out.(The amplifier will adjust the volume.) Use the Up/Down arrows to navigate through the menu options, press enter to enter a sub-menu and the volume up button to change a setting.

There is also a headphone jack which may be compatible with computer speakers. That has a 3.5 mm jack. To use headphones, set the Speakers Audio item to TV speakers Off and variable audio out. (The TV controls will adjust the volume.)

To use a Universal remote to set the audio or modify the channel list, you need one that matches the Menu function of the original remote. You may need to try multiple codes for Panasonic TVs to get the button to work. Some low-end universal remotes may not have the menu button; get a different remote or use the menu button on the front panel of the TV.

To set the channel list, press Menu and select Setup. Go to the Prog Chan option. Then set your Mode in the first option (Cable or Air). Then choose Auto Program to scan all channels or Manual Program to edit the channel list.

The manual for the TV is available at retrevo: . You will need to enter a code to access the manual. See page 5 of the manual for the input connections (page 7 of the PDF).

Can't change from MONO to AUTO mode

Can't make sound from mono to auto is your problem I thinks and posts this solution.
Hit the "Menu" button and surf through, come to "Sound Adjust" window.
The settings allow you to change and adjust sound in your TV. There are Bass, Treble and Balance control to adjust to your individual taste.
To adjust them
1. Press Menu button.
2. Press UP or DOWN button to select the desired item.
3. Press => or 4. Press EXIT button when finished.
When adjusting the parameter of "Balance" control, always set it to mid position to get stereo sound from both speakers. If it is set to any extreme end, there will be no output from the speaker of that side, and will hear as mono.
If you press "0" [Zero] button, you can reset the sound settings to it Factory settings.
To select 'Streo mode;
1. Press "Menu" button.
2. Press UP or DOWN button to select MTS [Multi-channel Telivision Sound].
3. Press => or [The ON AIR arrowtells you if a broadcast is in stereo AND/OR contains the SAP.
Press "Exit" button when finished.

Keep the TV in stereo mode to get the best sound quality. The sound will work in stereo

mode even if a certain broadcast is in mono sound only.

Choose the mono setting to reduce excessive noise on a certain channel or broadcast.
Selecting SAP will allow you to hear an alternative soundtrack, if one is available.

My volume on my sony tv wont go past 12 it will higher and lower but the maximum it will higher to is 12 have i maybe put a volume lock on it??

The only way the volume could be limited is if you were in the hidden tech menu----many of these sets have a setting there for initial volume level and maximum volume level.

Were you in the TECH menu for some reason?

I can tell you how to get in but you have to be very careful if you make any ADJUSTMENTS there--over 200 things can be adjusted there.

Let me know if I can help.

The volume is all the way up, but its as if the volume is about halfway up. Also, there is static in the background

If you are using a DTV box to receive digital TV signals use it to control the volume. Set it to a mid range level and adjust the TV volume to a satisfactory level. Then use the DTV control to raise or lower the volume as needed.

Concierge Hotel TV - Volume Control

If there are no chasis numbers on the outside you may want to open the cast and check for numbers there. Then you might be able to google the number and find a manual. some TV's willl enter the menu or rest by pushing two buttons at once on the set. This could change your channel selection however.

Adjusting TV Volume

Hi Joe,

If you do not have it available, you can access the user guide for this product at

Page 29 should be the beginning of instructions on using the installer remote. Reference the chart to find the menu line for start channel/volume. Depending on your set, this may be on line 10 or 11. You also may find options for minimum or maximum volume, as well as many other settings using this chart.

The next page gives specific information concerning this feature. The number you enter into this menu line determines the channel (with 0 being Aux and 255 turning the feature off). Volume is determined by actually setting the volume when on this menu line.

Hope this helps,
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Volume control doesn't work on the enternal speaker

On some sets that have audio output jacks, the level of the audio output on the RCA jacks is fixed, and it does not change with the TV's volume control. On some sets, such as Sony, you can choose fixed or variable output. I have also seen some sets that have both fixed and variable RCA jacks on the back. With variable audio out, the audio level at the audio output jacks follows the TV's volume control. If you go into the TV's menu and navigate to the audio page, look for fixed or variable output options. If you have the owner's manual, read the section on audio output. If variable output is not an option on your model, then the level is constant and the volume will have to be adjusted with the stereo's volume control.
