Question about Sony KV-36XBR450 36" TV

Sony KV36XBR450 - no sound

The sound just went off while I was watching. It's not in SAP mode or anything wierd. The surround system works with a DVD just fine, but when you just watch the TV no sound comes thru TV or surround. What could the issue be and would this be a pricey fix?

Thanks for your help

Hi!

Check for the cables to the cable box/reciever. What type of cable are you using for connection with the cable box(HDMI,RCA component cables)? Your tv is fine as it is working with the dvd player. The issue is with the cables connecting the cable box or from the cable company. Call them to get more information about this issue(maybe weak signals)

Please ask for further clarifications.

Please rate this solution as Fixya if found useful.

Thanks

Need to know is there is a input on the back of the sony davdx255 for the tv to recieve surround sound.


Does a TV NEED surround sound if you have a surround sound HIFI? Normal setero sound would probably suffice as the TV might not actually have electroics or speakers to do anything but mic\x it down to lo-fi stereo.

Correlary: You COULD just drag regular RCA audio out of your cable box to the TV if you want to watch the news or talk shows.

YOU ARE IN SAP MODE. IF THERE IS NO SECOND AUDIO PROGRAM ON THE STATION YOU ARE WATCHING YOU WILL GET NO AUDIO. SWITCH SAP TO STEREO OR MONO. SOME REMOTES HAVE A MTS BUTTON ON THEM.

Surround sound hookup


Hook your satelite receiver to your TV. Then run from your TV audio out to your surround sound system. This should make your surround sound system work with anything your TV is playing.

Surround sound hookup question?


It looks like all you'll need to do is hook up audio out from DirecTV to audio in on the surround sound system. Sony has an interesting hookup recommendation guide on the product support site:

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-home.pl?mdl=DAVC700&LOC=3

That should give you the connection options. The short answer, though, is to connect the best audio out from DirecTV to an audio in on the surround sound and then choose that option in the surround sound system when you want to watch TV.

Sony surround sound hookup


In short, the answer is: Hook up all three to each other. I have a Samsung DLP HDTV, and I was trying to hook up a Sony DAV-HDX500 home-theater system and a Comcast HD set-top box, but I found that the Sony user guide is helpful only for setting up the speakers. Most of what it had to say about HDMI and getting the TV sound or cable sound to go through the speaker system was wrong (or, at least, it didn't work for me). So, here's what I did. I connected Component video cables (Y/Pb/Pr out) from the Cable box to the TV (Y/Pb/Pr in), audio cables from the Cable box (audio out) to the Sony system ("SAT/Cable" audio in), and an HDMI cable from the Sony system (HDMI out) to the TV (HDMI in). This allows me to 1) watch DVDs with surround sound through the TV's HDMI source (when the "DVD" format is selected on the Sony system), 2) watch cable with surround sound through the TV's Component source (when the "SAT/Cable" format is selected on the Sony system), and 3) watch cable WITHOUT the surround sound, as I did before I ever had the Sony system. One item of note: When watching a non-HD channel with the surrond sound on, the audio is slightly out of synch with the video; thankfully, there's no such problem on HD channels. Anyway, I hope this helps. It drove me crazy for two days straight!
