Problem with sound and picture

Sometimes I'll be watching a program and all of a sudden the volume disappears and there is no sound, then after a few seconds the picture goes out. Sometimes if I turn it off and on again it comes back and sometimes it doesn't come back till the next day.

    Can't make out what your trying to say. Could you make it clearer??



    Thank you.

  • Susan Fanning Jan 07, 2008

    Do you mean the surge protector that it's plugged into? I'm provided cable by Comcast Cablevision. The cable itself is white with silver on the end. Is that what you needed to know? Please advise.

  • Susan Fanning Jan 07, 2008

    The surge protector is fairly new. I don't have a cable box. The cable goes from the wall to the tv or through my vcr I guess.

  • Susan Fanning Jan 07, 2008

    Gotta go home now. Be back at work tomorrow 7:30 a.m.



    Have a good night.

  • Susan Fanning Jan 08, 2008

    Good Morning,



    I really appreciate your help but I do not understand what you are trying to say. Can you write me in complete sentences with no abbreviations so I can follow what your saying please!!



    Thank you.

  • Susan Fanning Jan 08, 2008

    What do you do to do the chat thing?

  • Susan Fanning Jan 08, 2008

    Are you talking about having a satellite dish, because I can't have that where I live?

  • Susan Fanning Jan 08, 2008

    I have a flat screen LCD tv. There is no tube.

  • Susan Fanning Jan 08, 2008

    Are you sure that that has to do with volume going out occasionally on the tv??

  • Susan Fanning Jan 08, 2008

    If it's not connected thru the vcr how will the movies play on the tv?

  • Susan Fanning Jan 08, 2008

    Sorry I don't follow you too well. I don't know anything about tv and vcr hookups. I had a friend of mine set it up. So I really don't know what your talking about. I'll show what you said to my friend. Thanks alot and have a good day.

  • Susan Fanning Jan 08, 2008

    What does "rf" mean

  • Susan Fanning Jan 08, 2008

    I never know when the sound will cut out. It's been fine for a while now. I could be watching a movie and all of a sudden the volume disappears and then after a few seconds the tv shuts off. Never know when it will happen. Like I said it's been fine for a while now.

  • Susan Fanning Jan 08, 2008

    Hope whatever you said is not too complex. Hopefully it will work out. Thanks again.

  • Susan Fanning Jan 08, 2008

    Doesn't sound easy. Don't have a clue what your talking about. Like I said I'll ask my friend and try to figure it out. Thx.

If you have Cox Cable, and are using a Scientific Atlanta box, AND have "On Demand", and the volume suddenly goes out, turn your cable to the "on demand" channel (in Phoenix, AZ it's channel 1) and that usually restores the sound.

It's a known issue, and so far this is about the only solution that works quickly.

Last night, 4-24-20ll (in the middle of the night) I was watching a video and suddenly there was a crackling noise like static. Then the sound disappeared completely and never came back.


I think a harsh sound damaged the speaker. This is usually caused by software signed to enhance audio performance, such as VLC (which has high sound volume), Breakaway (a so sound-enhancing software, etc. First of all, try uninstalling such programs, or if you have not installed such programs, try restarting your computer several times. Secondly, test other speakers (external) with your computer to see if the problem is from your previous speakers. Hope this helped.
