No, there is no problem. The Vizio VHT 215 is designed to do this and you can't turn it off. I checked with Vizio support on this. It will mute after either 15 or 30 minutes (can't remember which). Also, if you are using HDMI out to your TV, and you mute it manually, it will turn off and your video will disappear after the timeout. The automatic off function is apparently based on sound rather than sound or video.

Why do i hear no sound from the tv

Most often caused by a mute circuit or the mute button pressed. Others are a wrong sound setting. Such as being set for Dolby Digital sound.

Flashing blue light on sound bar. No sound

Double check to make sure you don't have the "mute" on. Usually a flashing light indicates that the volume has been muted.

Youtube's automatic muting.

I've heard this is a Youtube issue. If my download speed was fast enough to set the volume a week ago it should be fast enough today. I think everyone who recently upgraded software is having this same issue. YT needs to get on top of it because it is obnoxious.

Volume Stopping Instantly

A few things to consider: if mute on the set is not on what about the box if you are using one?

Speakers could be switched off in the set.
There could be a internal / external speaker switch(not common but possible)
Sound on the set could be muted or turned real low or off.

if the image you see on the screen is there--either it is from the set or a box if one is used.

only a few things other than the sound circuit being bad will cause this--very few sets with actual no sound problems are around.

Crate csx24 sound board- the mute lights will not light. Sound works but lights will not light.

USUALLY the Mute LED's for the switches ar operated by separate contacts on the mute switch an a resistor current limit for the LED. I could NOT find the schematic for this board, HOWEVER some Soundcraft brand mixers do NOT have illuminated Mute switches... Not sure about your particular unit.

Tthe sound wont play on my new vizio 3d tv

  1. Check your connection from the TV Audio output to the Bose Input, and make sure the TV is not muted.
  2. In the TV's Sound/Audio menu, configure the TV to output the sound to External Speakers, not the internal speakers.
  3. Make sure the Bose system is powered on, and not muted.

Hi i was wondering is there any way of muting my laptop but others can here the music i am playing

Hi, sure there is a way to mute your laptop, either by turning the volume slider on the task bar all the way down, or look for the switch for the audio control on the keyboard, there should be one for mute... otherwise if you would like to hear the sound while no one else can hear it the best thig you can use is headphones.... good luck
