Question about Gateway GTW-P42M303 42 in. Plasma Television

No sound lost volume control

It lost sound gradually one day the volume disappeared 2 separate times before returning after I believe I turned the TV off then came back to it later, then a day or two later the sound was completely gone. The volume was never turned up loud as I sit 7 feet away, so could it be the speakers or some other small component that runs to the speakers?

TV audio output vastly different for satellite feed versus DVD feed. Why?


It is possible there are separate sound level functions for the DVD player, the tv and the satellite box, try the different remotes for each by unlocking the volume control on the satellite remote until you get them close or use the device specific remote volume controls. I would also try and use HDMI if available for the DVD instead of composite. If the volume controls are different it will show on the tv, might also go through all audio settings for each device. Some devices are pre-amped or send out strong sound signals while others are line level outputs designed to be amped by the output device, in this case your tv I believe. The HDMI vs stereo audio that goes with composite may be the cause or it could be in the settings of the device. Worst case is to remember to drop volume before you switch back so you don't ruin speakers.

Have you checked your remote to see if its working? If you have a digital camera or camera phone, point the remote at the lense and see if it shows up on camera screen. If it is working then the IR sensor on the tv could be bad.

We have a DVR hooked up to our 1989-99 Mitsubishi TV (floor model) still in amazing working condition. The remote control for that TV never allowed us to put the TV on mute. If the mute botton was...


Well, without knowing the exact model of tv and remote, I can just give my best guess.
Try using the volume up/down on the TV and / or the remote.
On the TV, try pressing both the volume up and down at the same time.
Stick the remote right in the face of the TV (direct in front of the remote sensor) and hit the mute button.
Try tapping the mute button in very short single bursts rather than pressing it for a half second like you would any other button.
If any of those work, please come back and reply with the model of the TV and remote, because someone somewhere probably has the same issue and would love to have it solved!

Cannot hear the sond on Sylvannia TV 6615LCT


This will sound strange, but some DVD players and cable boxes have separate volume controls. I would check the settings for both of those to make sure that the volume has not been turned down and also check the connections from the dvd player and cable box to the tv. Make sure all connections are solid.

Problem with proscan 19LA25Q


Watching a movie tonight...and slowly there was odd behavior from the screen. No volume at first, then flickering, fragmenting and now, as the others only shows the red power. I have noticed some strange flickering the past 2 weeks or so. I thought it may be the cable, so did not concern myself too much. I believed that was the problem tonight as well. But the screen is definately not responding to the remote or manual button.

Thanks

it says to replace the control box for no sound.
thats the main board to you.
I would use external speakers as they sound better anyway.
