Re: No Sound

9 times out of 10 it is something that is not set right. First eliminate any outside source by running the cable (or output of a VCR playing a tape) directly to the TV and tuning to channel 3. Then go into the menu, navigate to the audio page and make sure the speakers are set to ON and the set is not in the SAP mode. If you do all that and the set still has no audio, then your audio output IC probably burned out and should be replaced by a qualified tech.

SANYO Model CLT2054 Television

sounds a lot like you lost the video driver or control board functionality. From the 'decay' of your image, with sound still working, and all else being good, you're primed for a new video controller. Are you inclined to do the repair yourself? The service manuals are hard to get online, but the local service center MIGHT sell you one.

I have a panosonic plasma tv when i switch it on it tell me there is a speaker short and then switches it self of model number pdp507xda help

It's the internal circuitry problem. Try muting it and put audio connection to other speakers if it repeats, your TV audio system is internally dying.the audio connections has to be checked and faulty components should be replaced.
1. Speaker short.
Open it up and check the speaker connections. ONLY if you have basic skills working on electronics and don't have a warranty.
2. Sound Volume "Leveler"
Look in your sound option menu for a sound "balancer" option and turn it off.
If this doesn't work disable the sound and invest in that surround sound system (external speakers solution of your choice)

try this.for first unplug the main power cord of the tv for couple of minutes and then reconnect it.also before reconnecting the power cord of the tv again remove all the external device wires connected at its back such as dvd player/vcr etc etc.just connect only tv wire and check out.if still the same problem then its quite possible that the capacitors and ic on the audio circuit board are getting short in between so the circuit is not getting completed and cutting in between so the tv starts and turns off. if the tv is connected to externalk speakers then check out without connecting the external speakers and see whether it works.if it works that means tv is perfect.but if tv is having inbuilt speakers that its confirm problem with inter audio circuit of try connecting external speakers at the back of tv and check out.
This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya.

Display Issue; Sound, but NO Picture!

if you have cable tv try unplugging and plugging in that cable if that doesnt work you might have a bad cable. check for damage along the cord or bends in the metal ends sometimes that can also be the problem

Sharp aquos 46d62u has sound, but no picture

We have the same problem with our 32" Aquos. Turn on the TV and after a couple seconds the picture goes out but still have audio. So this solution doesn't permanently fix the problem, but it works instantly to get the picture back. With the TV turned off, tap the side of the set twice with the palm of your hand. Turn the TV back on, and VOILA, you have a picture. I know the last thing you think to do is to hit your TV to fix it, but that is often how my husband tries to fix things...this time it worked!!
