Re: Protron LCD tv - READ THIS #631 I work for Protron.

We are in a big dispute with the Chinese factory that makes Protron LCDs. No replacement parts will be coming, ever.

There are no remotes and no power supplies available.

PROTON has already won their lawsuit which prevents us from selling under the name PROTRON. As soon as they pay the bond, we are shut down.

Our management is in chaos. Our customer service dept is non-existant. Our rating with the BBB is 'F'. The product is cheap because it is made with cheap parts. Getting the picture here?

If you buy a Protron LCD, you are completely on your own.

Good luck.

How do i turn off the speakers on my toshiba 55tl515

There is no way to disable the speakers on the 3DTV 55TL515U, I would just turn the volume all the way down on the TV. If you are using the opticla output this should not be affected. If not than you have no worries anyways. Mute or Volume Down.

Hi there I have had the Tv for 5 years and it's

I would first check any of your inputs (i.e. cable, satellite, DVD player, ect...). If you hear this buzzing sound regardless of what input you are using, then it has to be the TV. If it's the TV causing it, audio is produced on the main board or A board named by Panasonic. It is the board that has the A/V inputs on it (cable, HDMI, component). This model has 2 different main boards it could use either TNPH0721ACS or TNPH0721ATS. As a TV repair technician, I often use Tri-State Module and would recommend them for parts. If you don't know which board you need, their customer service is helpful. I hope that helps.

I have a 42 inch Hitachi plasma tv that is making a very loud static noice coming from the internal speakers. It stays at a contstant very loud volume unless I completly mute the tv or turn the volum

Based on what you have tried if a buzz or loud static via the speakers you have something wrong in the audio output circuit of the set--problem here is that circuit may be part of the Main board that processes all signal---a look inside---following the speaker leads back would lead you to that board.

A simple thing to do to narrow it a little (you may have done this) is with sound all the way off put your ear to the internal speaker--hear anything at all like a deep hum?

Depending on age of set and cost of the board likely bad it may or may not be a do it yourself repair.

My view sonic monitor has no sound

Troubleshooting Sound Issues Verify that the audio cable is connected to the AUDIO OUT or LINE OUT output on the Sound Card and plugged into the AUDIO IN or LINE IN of the Monitor.   Make sure there are no cables connected to the Headphone Jack (located next to the AUDIO IN port) on the monitor. If there is, please disconnect that cable and try the speakers again. Connecting a cable to the Headphone Jack disables the speakers. If there is no cable connected into the Headphone Jack, test a pair of headphones into that jack to see if you can hear sound out of the headphones. If you are able to hear sound out of the headphones, disconnect the headphones and try the speakers again.   Verify that the Mute on the monitor is not on or the Volume is not turned down.    Verify that the Mute on the computer is not on or the Volume is not turned down.<    If there is still no audio from the monitor's speakers, connect the Audio cable to another audio source like a portable CD player or tape player headphone output. If audio can be heard through the monitor's speakers, then there may be an issue with the computers sound card.    Connect another set of computer speakers (if available) or headphones to the AUDIO OUT or LINE OUT output on the Sound Card. If NO audio can be heard then there is an issue with the sound card. Verify with the computer's manufacturer for additional assistance.   LCD TVs Troubleshooting No Sound from a LCD TV No Sound when using RGB (when connected to a PC) Confirm the audio cable is plugged into the Audio in on the LCD TV and the audio out on the computer. Note: On the N1700W use the GREEN mini-jack; on this model Audio is SHARED between DVI and RGB, there is only 1 audio channel for data connections. The N1700w is designed to take a 1.0v RMS audio signal for optimal sound quality.   Confirm that both the LCD TV Mute and Windows Mute are off. A general message will be displayed on screen to indicate status of Mute (On or Off).   Press the Volume Up Button on the monitor or remote to confirm the Volume is not set to zero.   Confirm that PC volume is sufficient by using Windows/Macintosh Volume adjustment settings.   Try plugging another audio source such as a CD or Cassette Player directly into the Audio port on the LCD TV to confirm the speakers work, or try plugging headphones or external speakers into the sound card on the Computer. If the Headphones or External Speakers do not work, contact the manufacturer of your Computer for further support. No Sound when using S-Video/Composite/ Component Video Confirm the audio cable is plugged into the Audio in on the LCD TV and the audio out on the S-Video, Composite, or Component Video device.   Confirm Mute is off. A general message will be displayed on screen to indicate status of Mute (On or Off).   Press the Volume Up Button on the LCD TV or Remote to confirm the Volume is not set to zero.   Try plugging headphones or external speakers into the audio port on the S-Video, Composite, or Component Video device. If the Headphones or External Speakers do not work, contact the manufacturer of your S-Video, Composite, or Component Video device.   Note: Some ViewSonic monitors do not include speakers.

Samsung P237HD tv/monitor,unit buzzing when on.

I would take it back unless you have time to investigate the problem before the return policy expires.

If the sound is coming from the speakers then it is interference and would likely happen with another TV.

The interference type can be electromagnetic or radio frequency, both of which can be defeated.
Start with plugging it into a different outlet. If that doesn't work, then unplug anything from it one device at a time to see which thing is the culprit. If it is one of the devices, move any audio cords away from power cords and/or position the device further from the television.
Household appliances and fluorescent lighting also can cause signal interference in electronics that is audible.
A device known to help with such interference are power line conditioners from such brands as Tripp lite, and ferrite clamps. You can place ferrite clamps on the power cords of your devices and their analog audio connectors.

One speaker buzz when cold

It works fine for a couple of minutes the starts to hum. If you turn up the volume it masks the noise but is till audible, also the video switching cuts out. after examining the components I have seen some heat discoloration in the power suply area and believe it to be power for the video board. disconecting the ribbon cable form the video board the hum goes away, and so does any video wich does'nt matter for me because my monitor1.gif does all the HD video1.gif switching. hope this may help with some noise problems.
