My audio has suddenly disappeared. the volume button on the TV and the remote are working, but I am not getting sound. Any idea why?

Check whether the audio is muted by accidental press at remote control button. Enter its sound menu, and check it. If muted, as you know there will be no audio output. If not muted, check the speaker/s. If found OK; check and replace the damaged component/s at its audio output section circuit board. If needy, replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience.

How do i get caption only on mute

On newer Sony TVs you press the CC button to cycle through the available settings for Closed Captions (CC): On, Off, and On when

However, it looks like your factory remote control lacks a CC button and your TV menu appears to have a simple Off/On option for what Sony calls Caption Vision. If that is the case then you would need to manually turn on Caption Vision when you mute the television. That hardly seems like the solution you're after.

If you had an aftermarket remote control that could record macros you might be able to program it so that when you press the mute button the TV would mute and also turn on Closed Captioning. This would require the proper remote control and some expertise.

I have a symbol appeared top left on my LG plasma 32PG6000 it is a black oval with what looks like a white speaker on it and it is crossed out in red. The must works fine and it doesnt remove the symbol....

Do you have sound ok? As this symbol indicates the audio is muted. If pressing the mute button on the remote control should get rid of it. If not then call your LG dealer to have an engineer call out to perform a total factory re-set & update the software if needed.

I cant get any sound the remote controls are working ok but no sound. tv doesnt appear to be on mute

There will be fault in the audio stage of the TV. Contact your local service repair centre to firstly ensure the TV has the latest version of software & if not to have it updated. If this does not cure the problem then the audio amp will most likely be at fault & need replacing

My insignia 37 inch tv

Press menu and use the up or down arrows to find the audio section adjustments. Press the right arrow and again use the up and down arrows to find tv speakers, Press the right arrow to either turn on tv speaker or turn them off ( This is used only if you are using the output signal from you tv in to you stereo input to have surround sound.) Turn them on to listen to sound from the television speakers only. If this does not solve your problem, Press the mute button on you remote control to release the mute function. If all this does not work the telephone number for Insignia is 1-877-467-4289. Talk to them about you problem and see if your television needs some type of service to restore the sound. Hope This helps you with your problem.

Olevia 537 - wont select HD channels

I assume the control panel on the tv still works correctly? If so i would think you have a remote problem. If thats the case let me know I will send you a link to instructions to repair your remote.
