You have a bad tuner you can replace it or use vcr if you still have one around. hook it up with av cable like your ps2 and hook your cable to it and use it to change channels. If you want to replace the tuner it will require soldering and you will have to order it somewhere. i would try The tuner is the metal can the cable goes into inside the tv.

Does say a dvd player give sound when connected to the same input? If you have determined that the source is good and the speakers are turned on in the menu then I would replace the main board.

The DVD player is running a movie with no picture or sound, the TV screen is showing an icon that says no signal...How do I get the movie to run with sound?

try using a different input on your tv. If possible try using a different cord to hook the dvd player to the TV. If neither solution works it sounds like a faulty dvd player.
also try using a different source on the tv like another dvd player, cable etc. etc. hopefully on the same input to make sure the tv is working properly .

Have no sound from VCR, cable hooked up properly, picture is great. TV is brand new.

Connect RCA cables yellow, white and red from VCR to TV. White and red are sound. Select TV input where VCR cables are connected using TV remote. Try different tapes. Turn up volume on TV.

Not to computer saavy so please keep it simple. I have a Sony Vaio VGC RA840G desktop with 5.1 surround sound. Also have a Samsung LN46A850 S1F HDTV. Also a home theater system. This is hooked up to cable...

From the looks of the TV manual you have everything right, so it's very odd you're running into this problem.

Have you tried swapping through the sources? I find with one of the TVs we have on display at work that any time I'm having some troubles with it I will change the source from PC to something else, then back to PC.

If that doesn't work then I'd suggest you try reseting the sound settings back to factory default. The instructions are on page 45 of the TV manual. From the TV menu select "Sound", then "Sound Reset", then either "Reset All" or "Reset Sound Mode". I would suggest reseting all.

Last option would be to try using the headphone jack in the side of the TV, though this is a last resort kind of thing since you would have to unplug it every time you wanted to use the cable box.

Hope this helps :)

Video 4 not working properly


9 out of 10 times, the problem is the device that is hooked up to the TV, and not the TV itself. This is especially true in the case of cable boxes, which have a long history of failures.

Temporarily, you can probably hook up the composite (yellow red and white) cables to get a picture and sound on a different input.

You can try to hook up a DVD player on the inputs (component, I'm guessing) and it will probably work. Then you get to call the cable company!

Hope this helps...
