Re: Television

If the signal is degrading to the receiver then the sound or picture can start to break up. You may find that some channels were weak to start with, maybe because the antenna is not pointing directly at the broadcast transmitter. The signal may be degrading because of damp in the lead from the antenna, bad connections or atmosperic disturbances. High wind can misalign a loose antenna. Interference from other close by electronic devices may also affect the signal. My best solution is to first look at the direction the antenna is pointing and compare it with your digitally enabled neigbours. Then check that all the antenna leads into and out of your video recorder, digital reciever etc are good. Finally only a proper antenna install engineer will have the necassary equipment to diagnose the problem. If you haven't got one already then an engineer may recommend an antenna specifically for digital reception. Good luck and come back to comment soon! Regards

No audio,tried menu items and selections,nothing.The sound just went out,what do you think it might be?

There is no sound or low volume coming from the television speakers.
Solution Follow this procedure to troubleshoot when there is no sound or low volume coming from the television.

NOTE: Because each of these steps represents a possible solution to this issue, check the television status after completing each step.
Increase the volume of the television. Ensure the television audio has not been muted. Ensure no headphones are not connected to the television. If using a set-top box with a volume control, increase the volume of the set-top box.
NOTE: If the set-top box is connected using an Audio/Video (A/V) connection, ensure that the A/V cables are connected securely to the appropriate video input on the television.
Verify that the MTS settings of the television are set to MAIN or STEREO .
NOTE: If the source device is not set to stereo or is not capable of transmitting a stereo signal, sound may come from one speaker on the TV only, and the volume will sound low. In this case, adjust or replace the source device.
If the TV has a Simulated effect in the audio menu, turn it off . Ensure the televisions speakers are not set as the center speaker.
NOTE: Some televisions allow the televisions speakers to act as the center channel speaker when using a multi-channel receiver.
Verify that the speakers are set to ON in the television menu.
IMPORTANT: If the television has audio output jacks and they are connected to a stereo system, then the speakers on the television may be turned off. Some televisions require the internal speakers or the center speaker setting to be off before audio can be sent out to a stereo receiver via the audio out jacks.
Ensure all audio and video cable connections are properly connected to the television.
Test the television using another source like a VCR, DVD player or Blu-ray Disc™ (BD) player.
Reset the television to the original factory settings. To reset your TV to factory settings, turn the TV ON. Then, while pressing the UP ARROW button on the Remote Control, press the POWER button on the TV. The TV will turn itself OFF then back ON.
NOTE: If your remote control does not have a RESET button or the procedure did not reset the TV to the factory default settings, perform a power reset.
If the issue is still unresolved after completing all the troubleshooting steps suggested, service may be required.

Hello anitahengeli, a simple dipole antenna will do, these are the cheapest. However an amplified antenna may be better suited they cost from $16.00 to $50.00 at Radio Shack. Remember to rate this help!! Thank you, Shuttle83

Mitsubishi CS-40503

Just discovered last night that my set has the same problem, the TV is also about the same age. I can't find the manual but I was wondering if it might be fuse related, just don't know where that might be. I've had blown fuses before in circuits designed to protect the speakers so I thought this might be possible. I'm currently using my DVD/VCR which uses a surround sound system, to view TV with sound so I have to use VCR tuner.

I'm going to try to connect speakers to the audio out on back of the TV to see if it can drive external speakers.
