Our tv sound is muffled

Hi there, We turned our tv on this morning and the sounds and voices were very muffled and hard to hear. We didn't do anything different when turning on the tv. It worked just fin e the night before while watching Leno. We left for work thinking the problem would fix itself. Nope. Any info or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Rick Romero

There is a power button on the front and a "main" power button underneath the front panel. Pushing the main power button should reset it.

you might need a new lamp, considering the age of the set, if there isn't any buzzing, constant clicking. You probably just need the lamp.

Audio seems to increase volume

this is gotta be the largest complaint I hear from folks when they get a new flat screen , its not loud enough or the sound sounds muffled

flat screens are flat ! so theres no good way for mfg to put the speakers facing forward so sound has to hit the wall behind it first then gets directed forward to you ! (low/muffled)

sound bars help with this , but for true rich sound , id go with a video receiver amp combo , some of these even have built in dvd players , and arrange its speakers in a forward facing direction

I have a problem with the background sound being louder than the voice sound on my Bravia 32 inch television whilst it is on free view. If I have the TV on Virgin cable ( we have both ). The sound is

Scene Select: Allows you to easily adjust your TV to the most suitable picture
and sound settings based on the scenes for the best quality result for the
contents genre you are watching (page 20 of your manual).

Additionally do not place the back closer than 3" to the wall, (stand,) 4" on either side and nothing closer than 12" from the top of the TV.

This is mainly for dissipating the heat that the TV creates, but this will also impact how the sound travels thoughout the space.

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.

Sound Quality

I also have a Samsung 46 inch HDTV and have the same problem. I reported it to Samsung. They sent out a repair man who replaced the entire audio system... I did not help at all. Sound quality still very bad. Hard to understand audio voice on most movies. Is there a solution short of installing an additional home theatre system?
