Question about GE 46GW945 46" Rear Projection Television
Watching TV when sound went out. SOME channels have no sound at all, some you can make out raspy dialog and others are just static sounds.
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.

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.
