Check to ensure there any peripherals on mute. (cble re,ote,Tv remote etc. Shut down all the components ,Let Tv sit off for 30 or si seconds, then turn on the TV,set volumne sround 1/4 then turn on the tv. If you have cable make sure the se on TV for input.. It should set to correct channel.The same thing occurred on my TV. 14" flat. The above was my procedure. Sound came on on reboot or it was coincudental to the cable carrier correcting something on their end.
Won't hurt to try. Or you can do what they always tell you when you call it in. Turn off the cable box, Unplug the power cord, wait 30 seconds and turn the box back on. Then give it time to reboot. Good Luck, Problems like this is the reason for slogans like "it's the small things that count" Probably something minor hopefully.
We call it "flashing 8's" and a lot of things can cause it.
1st one of the signals that the cable provider sends to the box, we call it a "hit", will reset the box and tell it redownload
2nd I find dirty power (poor wiring, UPS or surge protector failing) can send the box spikes of power that make it think it recieved a hit.
3rd could be a problem with your cable signal. signal too high, yes it is possible to have too good a signal. maybe a bad amp in the alley behind your place or on your building. (any neighbors having trouble?)
4th maybe its a bad box.... gotta go bad sometime.
Unfortunately, your charter HD DVR cable box is not a Viera link device that is compatible with the TC-P50ST30. Viera Link only works to control Panasonic HDAVI devices that are Viera Link ready (and that use the same Viera link coding) when using the HDMI cable. Thus some Viera link devices of different generations will not work with the same Viera link remote.
1.This issue sounds as though the TV connection circuit has an issue. 2. You have changed the DVR and the HDMI cables and you still have an issue with the video (pink screen) indicates a video circuit issue ( improper voltage or current) at the video section of the circuit. 3. This will require some troubleshooting by a qualified tech. 4. To make sure, try connecting another properly working LCD TV to the cable box or DVR an check.If you get a picture and sound properly it is the TV. 5. Usually a cable box is QA'd (quality assured) by the company and will not be sent unless tested 1st
Check the setup menus of the Insignia TV, as most sets have an advanced setting hidden deep in the setup menu to use the HDMI cable for sound - OR- use component RCA inputs for sound. My Philips TV has this.
It's odd that this only shows up for SD content...I would see if there is a firmware update available for that from the manufacturer. The one thing that you see lots of firmware fixes for are HDMI issues.
