    So TV gives noisy sound in left channel only with cable.
    If you are using cable box, please recheck its settings.
    and if its direct cable, perform "fresh/ new" auto tuning or channel search in TV so it might fix L-Speaker sound issue.

    Yes, seems audio processing chip is defective.
    You should have related service manual to order correct part.

RE-check the audio amp on its own see if this happens with any input device...

Re-check the connections, and be sure your cable wires are all in good condition....and that you have the proper input/output ports correct.

Kdl-32v4000 sound

Check the speaker first. Check if there is any sound output comes from the audio out terminals at the back of the TV, by connecting them to any external audio out devices; such as an amplifier or so. If there is audio output comes from the external source such connected, and no audio output from the TV; since the speakers are good, the fault is with the audio output section circuit inside the TV. If there is no audio output from the external sources too, the fault is with the audio processing section circuit at the main board. If this is the case, main board is faulty, and should be replaced.

Sony BRAVIA KDL-40V2500 audio not working

I would Google the model number carefully for "problems" "no sound" and usually this set will display some kind of error code===it may even have a hard reset to try===service manuals are available on the net/web to allow you to see how the sound circuit is set up etc.

I have external speakers / woofers with amp ..what i nedd is to connect those with my Sony bravia LCD TV.. i mean i need the audio output from the TV which will connect with the external speakers .. if...

I do not want to sound patronizing, but I have no idea how much you know about wiring ... so I'm probably going to over-explain everything. Hopefully it won't read like stereo instructions ... ha ha ha
Depending on your TV, theremight be a door covering the wire access .. or there might be audio outputs on the front of your TV ... but these are more likely to be inputs for game consoles and other things. You should have a red and a white jack in the back of your TV marked "Audio Out" ... those are left and right audio outputs from your TV. Use RCA cables from Radio Shack or wherever and connect that to your amp left and right audio inputs -- the RCA jacks should be the same color as the wire connecting them, which makes it easier to trace wires later. Generally, the amp should have a red and a white RCA jack as well .. make sure they match your wires , too ... or you'll end up hearing things in reverse. You should find sterio wire inputs on the back of your amp -- if your speakers have the wire connected, set them up and then plug them into the appropriate jacks. There shoud be some sort of lever on the side of each of thee jacks, push it open and insert the wires. Some of these are spring-loaded so you might have to keep your finger on it to hold it open. Just put a bare cord from the speaker into it, and make sure the lever closes again, securing the wire. Your amp should have the left and right speaker outputs, subwoffer output, and everything labeled, but you'll probably need a lot of light on it to see it (usually it is just a recessed or relief letter L and R for the left and right speakers.
I am not exactly well off, so most of the electronics I have are a bit old. You might only have a different audio output from your television, in which case I would recommend speaking with someone at Radio Shack -- they tend to know a lot about wiring electronics together (more than at Best Buy or other big-box stores) or if you don't have one of those around, find a local electronics store, or a pawn shop ... people who work in these types of places usually enjoy the challenge of putting a round plug into a square jack.

How to connect my audio system directly to sony bravia

There is usually three ways to connect a TV to a Surround Sound system:

1. Optical Audio Cable (Fiber Optic)
2. Coaxial Audio Cable (Orange)
3. Composite Audio Cables (Left - White, Right - Red)

Once you select a cable to use that is compatible with both devices, you must then connect it to the output on the TV set, and one of the inputs on the Surround Sound Receiver (preferably the Video Input or whatever type you selected to use). Then you must change the input on the Receiver to the proper input that you connected the cable to (most Receivers will have a Source Button if not individual source buttons i.e. Tuner, Tape, CD, Video, Aux, etc.).
Note: Some Receivers if using a certain type of input will not have sound out of all 5 speakers unless the input is 5.1 compatible.

Connecting speakers.

The speakers cannot be connected directly to the audio outputs. These outputs are for use with an external amplifier. Connecting speakers directly to these audio outputs can cause damage to the set. Thanks

How do i hook external speakers to sony bravia television

The proper way to do this would be to use the audio output from the TV, either analogue left and right or the optical port, and send it into an dedicated amplifier or AV receiver. You can then use the amplifier or receiver to power the external speakers. If you are using a dedicated amplifier with no volume control you will want to change the audio output setting on the TV to "variable out" as oppose to its current "fixed out"settings. You can find this in the TV menu, usually under the audio settings. This will allow you to use the current TV remote to adjust the audio volume coming out of the external speakers.
