Sound problems Sound goes out periodically. Usually the problem is corrected when the tv is turned off, then turned back on. Sometimes the speakers will crackle and pop and the sound will return on its own. Any advice?

On this particular unit as well as some of the other RPTVs in this line from Hitachi, the sound boards seem to have known issues that aren't easily resolved, even with replacement boards.
Most folks resort to the use of an external receiver and speakers, which while it's not a solution for this particular problem, will at least provide you with a workaround...  -TD

Lost picture at first and now it appears to have lost sound also


Hi,lost picture - Sometimes, the TV may display a black screen, now you need to check the cables whether they are properly plugged or not. Reconnecting all the cables can also work for this problem. Also, if the screen has a screen saver, check how it's set up. And, if nothing works for this issue, then there is a possibility that the lamp, rear projection, or the LCD panel may have been damaged. Now, you need to check your warranty card of your television and se your set comes under the manufacturer's warranty period. Call the customer service for technical problem and get replaced if a part demands it.


consigning no sound on your TV

You might need to do some troubleshooting tips first before calling arepair man to replace the sound IC inside the TV.


Check the volume setting. It might sound simple, but it's the best place to start. Make sure the television sound is not muted or turned all the way down using the remote or buttons on the front of the television. If the batteries are dead in the remote and the TV is muted or turned down, it might seem like the sound is broken.


Examine cables connected to the TV. Sometimes a loose connection can cause a loss of sound. Ensure all cables are tightly connected to the television and correctly inserted. Some peripherals are connected using a three-plug system and are usually labeled red, white (sometimes black) and yellow. Both the red and white leads are sound cables. Try removing all the cables (except the power) from the back of the television and turning it to TV mode, then listen for static or other sound.


Plug in headphones to the television with all cables re-attached. See if you can hear sound through the headphones. If you can, it may indicate that the TV's internal speakers are not working. If you can't hear anything through the headphones, it may be indicative of a larger problem.

Call a repairman. If at this point everything has failed to produce a sound, it's time to call in the professionals. A qualified technician should be able to fix the problem either at your home or in a workshop.

Generic problem for all Flat Panel Televisions Plasma TV turns on


if I were you I would move the TV to a place where it would get more air to the vents of the TV so the heat buildup would be less.

Plasma tv screen goes black once you turn it on. Only sound


I have a panasonic TH-42PX60U plasma TV. When I watch TV programing I have no problems, or with the DVD input. But if I switch to another input, be it video game (PS2) or vcr the screen sometimes goes black and the red power lcd light next to the power switch flashes. Holding the power button in for a few seconds will shut down the tv. Then I can turn it back on and it may operate normally again for a undetermined period of time, before the screen goes black again. This never happened when new. The tv is about 1 year old. Any ideas on this problem? Thanks Ernie

Turn your set on. While it is on unplug the power cord. Let it sit for about 5 minutes and then plug it back in. If the set comes on without turning it on you did not leave it unplugged long enough. If you you have to hit the power buttom to get the set to come on you will likely have sound. Sometimes you will have to go into the menu and turn your speakers back on. Also a satelitte reciever or cable bax can do the same thing. Usually you can unplug them for about 30 seconds and then plug them back in and turn them on to correct the problem if they are the cause.
