If this is a "new to you" TV, keep reading. If it is a brand new TV, I'd be on the phone to the store to have a replacement ready for delivery / pick up. You do not want to be repairing a TV that is 2 days old.
The first thing to do is determine if the distortion is coming from the speaker or if it is on the signal going into the speaker. Do both speakers sound distorted or only one?
You didn't include the model number of your TV, so I can't speak to specifics. Look for a terminal on the rear of the set identified as "speaker" or "external speaker". If provided, there will be one set of terminals marked for the left and one for the right external speaker.
Connect a speaker directly to the terminals marked for either the left or right speaker (connect to the one that sounds distorted if only one of the built in speakers works correctly - other wise pick either speaker terminal pair.). Speakers that have RCA plugs on them, have built in amplifiers, require batteries or or to be plugged in to an outlet should not be connected here.
Alternatively, you could connect a pair of stereo headphones or earplugs if your TV offers a jack for them. It would have a headphone icon or say "phones" above the jack if one is provided.
Once connected, turn the TV on, lower the volume and set the TV to enable the external speakers / disable the internal speakers. This may be done via menu item selection or a small switch near the speaker terminals. Slowly increase the volume to listen to the quality or clarity of the sound coming from the speakers you connected. If they sound distorted, the problem lies with the audio amplifier in the TV. If they sound OK, then there is a problem with the speakers in the TV.
If you can't return the TV, you may have to see about using the left and right audio line out or HDMI jacks to send the audio to an external amplifier and speakers to hear the program.
I hope this was helpful and good luck! Please rate my reply. Thank you.
This could be the speakers are vibrating onto the casing and need padding out more to prevent this.If this isnt the case, you may have a sticking coil on one of your speakers..When the sound distorts, remove one speaker in turn to see which one(s) are the offending unit(s) and replace. Is there a buzzing noise coming from the speakers especially in low volume? If so then you may have a faulty capacitor in your power supply producing hum on sound. Hope this helps :)
The hard way, if you have the skill, is to replace the speakers. The bad news is that this probable won't fix it as it is likely that it is internal noise causing the distortion.
there is an easy solution that will probable work. Using the audio output connection you could hook it up to a stereo system or boom box and use those for sound. the only thing technical is making sute your cord has the right connectors/adapters on each end. take a picutre or a good look at both devices audio connectors (output on the TV, input on the Stereo/boombox) and the salesman at your local electronics store should be able to help you find just what you need. at a guess you will likely need an RCA female to RCA female cord or an RCA to stereo mini male.
