LCD TV, Sound doesn't work on freeview.

Hi, I have a Compacks 32" LCD TV which works perfectly when I'm watching a DVD or satellite TV. The problem is that I have no sound when I watch the built in Freeview. Any ideas ?

When watching freeview,check the settings in the menu,if this doesn't produce any remedy then a quick and easy solution,all you need is a set of rca/phono leads,connect the tv to an amp via the rca(phono)audio out from the back of the tv to an audio in(rca/phono)on the back of an amp,most stereo systems will have an audio in of if you have a surround amp even better,just remember to select aux on the stereo and you should then have sound.

Picture overlaid with multicoloured horizontal bars & small rectangles on both TV & DVD. Sound on DVD ok. Switched off awhile, no change.

Fault to its main board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. . In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.

My vizio flatscreen lcd has pic but will not play sound through the tv output, however it will pay sound when watching a dvd - just not when watching satellite

Use the cables connecting the DVD and connect the satelite.
If everything works OK, then check and replace the cables for the Satellite.
If the sound is still No Good, check the audio settings on the satellite
You may connect the DVD using the Satellite cables as a check as well

A Gateway GTW-L17M103 will not power on, no power lights/menus. I have a Gateway GTW-L17M103 17 inch monitor. I purchased it brand new in 2003. It currently refuses to turn on (green light on monitor itself will not come on). I have confirmed that the DC power adapter is outputting 12 volts correctly. Opening case (and looking at the main circuit board underneath primary panel) does not show any immediate signs of scorching or discolorations on any of the components... although I did not look underneath the other two covers for damaged parts. The monitor died 1 1/2 years after purchase... when it died, I had been playing a computer game. The picture froze/locked up and although I heard audio playing through speakers on the tv, the video was locked up and the tv was 'stuck' on. I had to unplug to turn it off, now will not turn on in any respect. For sentimental reasons, I'm trying to revive the monitor. I never had the heart to get rid of it, so it has sat in storage waiting for me to try to fix it. But it's important now for me to get it taken care of right away. Any help would be greatly appreciated.... Although I don't know myself how to repair it, I have friends who have access to a lab at a university that could fix it if I knew the precise problem. They confirmed the ac/dc unit was working for me, but didn't see what else might be wrong when we looked at the main panel. They suggested trying to find a schematic layout so we could test current, if a simpler explaination is not available. One person had suggested it might be a fuse problem, but I didn't see anything that looked remotely like a fuse, and neither could my professor... Joseph.
