If you have perfect audio and video from a DVD player, then your TV is OK. So, what is it then? I have found that, with my service provider constantly updating their HD receiver for increased energy efficiencies, the receiver now no longer has the 'push' required to get the video up to the screen. For success, I would turn the Receiver 'off' then back 'on' and the resultant 'shot' of energy seemed to push the video enough to get the image going. New TV's are ever more energy efficient (that's why the Providers will often off a 'free' new TV if you go with their service... so their HD stuff will work and they test using their provided TV.

Try turning your volume up all the way so you can hear the other person. The volume control should be somewhere on the sides. Or it may show up as a slider with a picture display indicating which way to increase or decrease the volume.

My sanyo hdtv shows no pictures when you turn it on (the screen is black) but you can hear the audio. The remote control can change the channels and volume up&down but the picture won't show

Good day!

The problem of your TV could be the inverter board or the cold cathode light is busted.

Follow this instruction on how to fix that problem:

  1. Remove the back cover of your TV.
  2. Look for the Inverter board.
Inverter board looks like this:

3. Check the input voltage of the inverter board if have 24vdc.Using multimeter (range on DC)
4. If you have 24vdc,check the output voltage of the inverter board it should have 500vdc.
5. If you don't have 500vdc output on the inverter,replace it.
6. If the you have the output voltage on it,the problem could be the busted cold cathode light (C.C.T).Replace it.

I hope this solution will be helpful.Thank you and don't forget to rate my answer.

Look in your task bar (bottom right) for the picture of a will show "volume" when you hover over it. Double left click on the speaker icon and it will show the "Master Volume window"...make sure none of the "Mute" is checked, if they are the un-check them.
Also bring up all the "sliders" to the top. This will give you max volume.
Good luck,

Plz i wanna help,my computer toshiba satellite m35x-s149 does't have sound,plz send me the programme for download.thanks

We need to know what is happening when you try to play a sound.
Do you hear anything?
This is a laptop and you can turn the sound on and off by using your keyboard--pressing the function key at the bottom left of your keyboard and then pressing the sound volume key which is one of the function keys at the top of the keyboard (the ones with the little speaker pictures on them).
Your Toshiba may also have a volume control on the side of the machine.
You must also check the control panel (the icon that says sounds and audio devices). Does it show a sound device when you click on it? Check to see if the "mute" box is checked. If so, uncheck it.
When you click on the Sounds tab, can you see Windows events at the bottom of the screen with little speakers beside them? If so, can you click on one of the events and then click on the right arrow just to the right of the sound events? Is the arrow dark or light when you click on the sound event? If it's dark, you should hear the sound. If it's light, you need to go to Toshiba's website and download the correct sound drivers for your computer.
