Question about Samsung SPN4235 42 in. Plasma HDTV

No Sound on TV??

I inherited this TV secondhand. The picture works great but I get no internal sound whatsoever. I hooked up audio input from other sources, and they don't produce sound either, so I am sure it is the internal sound. I have fiddled around with the settings but can't find anything that works. Unfortunately I don't have external speakers so I can't check to see if external sound works. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Re: No Sound on TV??

Thanks for the suggestion.   I have since discovered the problem.  Apparently this model does NOT have internal sound.  You must purchase their matching external speakers or get surround sound system (which i did).  then it works great.

Re: No Sound on TV??

I would borrow a set of external speakers to see if I could get sound from the sound circuit at all, if not, then it sounds like the repair shop.

Unless you hook HDMI to HDMI, you won't carry sound across the HDMI cable. If you're using a VGA to HDMI converter, you'll get the picture but no sound.

I have a feeling the headset jack on the TV is an output rather than an input. Most TVs accept HDMI, RCA, or a digital audio input (either coaxial or optical). Unless you have a S/PDIF optical output from your laptop (and you obviously don't have an HDMI output), then your only other choice is likely to get a cable that splits a 1/8" headset type connector into two RCA plugs that you'll plug into an AUDIO IN input on your TV.

Hello; This model does have built in speakers just below the screen. If you don't have sound, make sure the sound is not muted and that SAP has not been selected in the audio mode on the remote control. Read/ download the owner's manual for best info. If still no audio, you have a failed circuit board. John

I hook my computer up to my lc195sl9 via hdmi and i get great picture but no sound on the monitor. what can i do to get sound.

HDMI only gives you great video but no sound. I can't find a manual for it but basically you need to hook up an RCA jack from the ouput on your sound card to the input onto your monitor. At that point you will have sound. Just be sure to go into your setting on your monitor and turn up the souund volume.

You may have to go into the TV setup menu and change a setting for Sound (or Audio) that tells the TV which input to use (HDMI or component) for sound. Usually the HDMI connection will work automatically but if you connect cables to Audio L/R that may override the HDMI sound input.

I have a plasma Samsung with picture but no sound

Internal sound board/amp is probably bad. But make sure that the speakers were not turned off in the sound settings menu for the television. You could try hooking up and external reciever to the audio output jacks of the TV and see if you get any audio from there. If you do at least you can still get sound from your tv...even though it is not from the internal speakers.

No Non-Hd sound

I had the exact same problem on a brand new Insignia 26 " LCD with DVD. Comcast tech was able to fix it by changing the Comcast box diagnostics. Here is what he did. Using the Comcast remote with the TV on - press power, cable, menu in that order. A comcast diagnostic srceen will appear. Select Additional HDMI options, then audio options. Change the audio options to L-PCM. Press power again to exit the diagnostics. That will fix it and you get to use the HDMI cable.
