Hi,


It seems that there wld be an issue with IC's located inside ur LCD Tv.


And more likely u need to change that. This usually occurs when there is a fluctuation in the voltage provided to the televisions.


In this regard, i would appreciate if u can get in touch with the local service centre.

Follow the procedure to get this rectified as soon as possible.

When you say the sound is the same. Do you mean you are receivieving audio normally or that the sound is not working as well.

With the TV just being 9 months old I would recommend you look in the paperwork and find the Warranty information on your TV. If it is still in effect Take it to an authorized repair facility. This will get your TV repaired by a professional with HANDS on experience with this type of TV

The reason I recommend this is because MOST warranties are 1 year or more. And taking the unit apart to do a self repair will more than likely VOID your warranty.

If your warranty has lapsed or you want to try a self repair yourself, then please post back here with your answer about the sound and we'll be happy to help you.

Try to use different video inputs first.
Your LCD might have a defective main board or video if you have the screen illuminated. Since your TV is less then a year old, still under manufacturers warranty.
I would suggest to contact the manufacturers to get repair under their warranty.

Hi,

Initially, try checking the connections to your source. If you are using a decoder box and it uses the yellow composite video, pls verify its connection. Alternately, try a hard reset by unplugging unit from the mains for an extended period.

Was there anything out of the ordinary prior to the incident? Thunder storm, near lightning strike, power fluctuations, interruption, outages?

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Try first unplugging power cord for one hour or so.

If the TV does not restart, it means that there is an internal fault.

    Try first unplugging power cord for one hour or so.

    If the TV does not restart, it means that there is an internal fault.

    In this case call the phone number listed on the owner manual, as the tv is still under factory guaranty cover.

    They will give you details on how to validate the factory guaranty.

Lost picture at first and now it appears to have lost sound also


Hi,lost picture - Sometimes, the TV may display a black screen, now you need to check the cables whether they are properly plugged or not. Reconnecting all the cables can also work for this problem. Also, if the screen has a screen saver, check how it's set up. And, if nothing works for this issue, then there is a possibility that the lamp, rear projection, or the LCD panel may have been damaged. Now, you need to check your warranty card of your television and se your set comes under the manufacturer's warranty period. Call the customer service for technical problem and get replaced if a part demands it.


consigning no sound on your TV

You might need to do some troubleshooting tips first before calling arepair man to replace the sound IC inside the TV.


Check the volume setting. It might sound simple, but it's the best place to start. Make sure the television sound is not muted or turned all the way down using the remote or buttons on the front of the television. If the batteries are dead in the remote and the TV is muted or turned down, it might seem like the sound is broken.


Examine cables connected to the TV. Sometimes a loose connection can cause a loss of sound. Ensure all cables are tightly connected to the television and correctly inserted. Some peripherals are connected using a three-plug system and are usually labeled red, white (sometimes black) and yellow. Both the red and white leads are sound cables. Try removing all the cables (except the power) from the back of the television and turning it to TV mode, then listen for static or other sound.


Plug in headphones to the television with all cables re-attached. See if you can hear sound through the headphones. If you can, it may indicate that the TV's internal speakers are not working. If you can't hear anything through the headphones, it may be indicative of a larger problem.

Call a repairman. If at this point everything has failed to produce a sound, it's time to call in the professionals. A qualified technician should be able to fix the problem either at your home or in a workshop.

Vertical white line down centre of Soniq PT42SH plasma TV.


One of your "X" buffer boards is defective. In Panasonic plasma tv's they are located at the bootom of the set and connect directly to the plasma diplay panel via a thin ribbon cable. The board you want to replace will be directly in line with the discolored vertival line in the picture. The part number is on the circuit board and usualy starts with "tnp..." or "txp..."

We have sound but no picture on Phillips flatscreen television


Take a flashlight and shine it on the screen when you have sound, look very close, can you see a video image? If so the inverter is probably bad.
Let me know and I will assist further.
