OK, there is no sound card. the sound input and out put is handled by the main circuit board(pc board). you will need to replace this main circuit board in order to eliminate this audio glitch.

    This is not easy and, if done incorrectly, it will damaged the entire set. i recommend a service tech for this repair.

I have a service manual for the 46GW948, very close model number.
http://ekse.hopto.org/FixyaSupport/46GW948.pdf
its a pdf file so if you can't open the document you will need a pdf reader, its the free download on this page http://www.foxitsoftware.com/pdf/reader/

Looking it over there doesn't appear to be a replaceable board for it or card. Possibly its on the main board. A tech could very likely test and find the problem from the board and fix it.

I don't recommend a home repair unless you have experience and you know how to avoid getting yourself electrocuted.

Need to warm up????


Sounds like something wrong in the tuner circuit How about performing a by-pass test? Use the A/V 1 or 2 inputs on the bottom rear of tv to hook-up signal.Use dvd or source box.When the set is cold,turn on and check.If the pix & sound are good,then the tv has a tuner problem. If you can live with two inputs,no repairs need to be done.Caution:observe funky,side-ways hook-up on A/V 2 !!!
