If this set has the Guide Plug logo printed on the front of the cabinet, unplug it from power and power it back.

If that does not help look in the menu for SAP which is secondary audio program, that will mute sound on some channels and may be your problem.

What do you have hooked to the set and how?

By the way if you hook a DVD player to the rear jacks on the set and go to that input and have good sound the problem is not in sound circuit.

SOURCE: I was watching tv and it popped and went out. Tv

Something has shorted out and is causing the power supply to overload which makes it switch slower bringing the frequency into a range you can hear. With the age of the unit I would bet on the Horizontal Output and flyback having problems. I have a tip at http://www.fixya.com/support/r4916941-diagnose_repair_projection_tv_high which explains the troubleshooting process and where to get parts as well as what to do if the flyback is not the problem. Good luck. Let me know if you need more help.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the generous rating.

My sound on Onkyo HT R 548 stopped working


If this is a Surround Sound System you can check channel and audio tone levels using the remote. Check remote for a receiver button followed by Test button. Check manual for test instructions.

No dialog sound when watching DVD's


The problem is that your center channel is not functioning correctly.  Dialogue is typically routed to the center channel only in 5.1, so if you don't have a working center channel all you will get is sound FX and background sound.
Go through all your settings, verify that they are correct.  Verify that your center channel is working properly, and wired to the correct output.
Test the center channel speaker and I feel confident you will find something amiss.

TV or Satellite Box Problem?


Do you have a VCR or DVD recorder? If yes, set it to record what you are watching. After a "blackout" rewind the tape and review it. If there is a blackout on the tape, the problem is the sallite box, if not, it is the TV! QED
