Suddenly stopped working. Played audio through it the night before, then next day.. heard some popping sounds while switching modes (ie. radio). Not good to hear this from an amp. Audio is comletely dead, in all modes, and even test tones. Other functions seem to respond from remote, yet I now notice eject doesnt respond also (remote or manually).
I could have the audio circuits/components repaired OR just junk it. Not sure if I shoulf pay almost $100 when I can buy a new one for similar price.

Re: DVT216 Audio Problem: No sound at all
JUNK IT!!! this unit is notorious for junker style problems... I just helped someone out with a similar concern.
Buy a new one of a different type! Sony even offers dreamsystems that arent expensive, arent good, but at least wont pull a buzz and deadness overnight on you...

Then it is not so fine. The player has a Video and Audio reader section and one may work without the other. If the heads audio fails to receive a signal it will not transmit the audio signal out to the speakers. Replace or get a new unit.
It sounds lamp in tv got broken as you heard pop sound of it, replace lamp in tv to fix the issue. Blinking light would be Lamp light at tv front that shows lamp is dead. Lamp replacement procedure is easy and mentioned in tv user manual. Thanks.
You have a bad amplifier section and your unit will need to be repaired by a technician. I would disconnect the speakers to prevent possible damage. In some cases components in line with the transistors will be bad in the amplifier also. There is no way to tell without electrically testing the unit in shop. Estimated repair cost would be in the 60 to 80 dollar range depending on the number of parts that are bad and the labor rate in your area.
Are you sure you have not done the volume mute. Check for the speaker cable if the pin is correctly inserted in the speaker jack. or try the method which is always handy . Go to Start + Programs + Accerories + System Tools + select System Restore , Remember you last heard the sound and restore .
Has anyone heard of something like this where the cable box/service is causing popping sounds?
yes & it is common problem.
And is this something I should be concerned about causing damage to the TV's speakers?
not at all.
The Sony tech-support representative (over the phone) diagnosed it further to a problem not with the TV but with the cable box/service because there were no popping sounds when I played a DVD on my Playstation 2 that is attached to the TV.
they are right that your problem is not due to tv.
it is due to cable box/service?
but not defective it reqires to change the way you have connected tv to cable.please call tech to get it connected in such a way so that you do not get popping sound when you you put off cable box.
