Soyo Flat Screen TV Sound or Volume control is stuck
When I turn on the TV, the sound immediately starts increasing until the volume is at the maximum. If I push the volume down, it responds but when I quit pushing the volume button, it immediately goes right back up. Also, the source keeps changing without me hitting any buttons.

Re: Soyo Flat Screen TV Sound or Volume control is stuck
Hi deborah card,
Lets first make sure your remote is not causing your problem,
Look at the light (led) on the remote, is it lit and pulsing?
If not you are having a problem with the control panel,
Have you recently cleaned your tv with a liquid?
If so you will need to dry the panel with a hairdryer, unplug the power from the tv, put it on low heat and hold it about 6 inches from the panel for a few minutes. With the tv still unpluged press all buttons on the panel a few times then plug back in and try it. Let me know if this helps and please rate this solution. lone99star

It sounds that the volume to your TV is locked in its service menu. To unlock it, you have to enter its service menu options to unlock it. This is really a skilled work, need sound knowledge in electronics to proceed. Improper data settings done to this window might turn your TV irreparable. It will be best to contact any expereinced service techinician in this matter.
If the volume indicator appears and respond as you increase the volume but the sound does not respond, there might be a problem on the audio section.Ask for a repairman to check it. If the indicator does not respond, try using manual control instead of using remote control.Also some units have features to turn speaker off or on. Go to menu scan for audio check if it is turned off or on.
Make sure this is happening from two sources such as a dvd player and a gaming system as well. If it happens from two sources the speakers are more than likely not working or the sound board will need to be replaced. A cheap way of getting around a repair is by getting a surround sound and running a cablebox, dvd player, and/or your gaming system directly to the surround sound system using it for sound instead of the tv.
What I would suggest you do is Press your MENU button on the tv remote, Then down to SOUND and then Turn the AUTO VOLUME to OFF. Then come out of the menu screen.
Just to check that it has all work correctly. turn you volume upto a certain number for example 25
Then turn your TV off the turn it back on. Wait until it is displaying a picture then press the volume button Once either up or down and you should see that it will go to 24 or 26 depending on what button you pressed for the volume. This will keep your volume set to whatever you had it on before you turned the tv off.
Try the setup program. When you get to the main setup screen, look for a reset all to standard setting. That may solve the problem. If it doesn't then the sound module may need to be replaced inside the TV.
If you use a digital cable box, it could be that the volume on that isn't turned up all the way. I didn't even realize the box had volume controls until 2 years after I got it...makes a HUGE difference now
