Re: sound

Cable box has its own sound level control, most likely. use its remote to adjust that.
if that is what you are adjusting, then you need to next adjust up the volume on your sound producing device(s) such as your amp or your tv
good luck

When turned on it has no picture but sound works

if your TV stays on, display glows, but there is no picture, most likely you have faulty t-con board and/or display itself. I've encountered the problem with both lately. I'd start with t-con(display adapter) board. it's not hard to replace and cost around $100 top. If that won't solve the problem, then it's a display panel itself. not an inverter, which is the part of power supply, but panel itself. Before replacing t-con, try to reach display's ribbon cable connectors, plugged into t-con board. disconnect first one and turn set on. If you see half of the picture, the display is bad.
If nothing changes, reconnect that cable and disconnect another one. If you see half of the picture, display is bad. If, still you don't get any picture, that's your lucky day! Display is good, t-con is bad. Replacing the display panel will void any reasonable repair option. Those crooks at "parts distribution' selling displays at the price of your TV, when you bought it: $1,500-2,000+. i don't understand why do they practice rip off. most likely to encourage customers to buy new junk and receive hefty bribes from "peoples republics" to stay in business. Anyway, it's a crazy globalism. that's why our country in default.
good luck with your project,

Shortly after turning on my 2007 samsung 42" LCD TV, the sound turns off.

Since you just changed signal source (from what I understand) your first goal should be to determine if the problem is in your TV or your signal source, i.e. directv receiver (and btw aren't directv satellite and not cable service?!).

You do that by trying another source for the TV - DVD, blue-ray, over-the-air antenna, anything that is not your new sound source.

Once you know the sound is broken down by the TV and not the TV receiver (or the other way around) you can proceed with troubleshooting.

No picture but there is sound

think I may finally have the answer for the "black screen of death" for the 42" Polaroid LCD televisions. I was having the same issue with the screen going black after a couple minutes of being on. I would shut it down then turn it back on and it would work again for 5-10 minutes. On the "power board" which is the board on top, there is a little red light that turns on when the screen would go black. above that there are 4 little switches, the lower on says BURN. I simply switched that over and the television has been working for 2 days for 8 hours + each day. Hope this help. Let me know

52" LCD Flat Screen won't turn on, series of clicking sounds

9 times out of 10 its the power supply unit inside around $150 replacment charge.

you could check the fuse in there and see if it did not take a surge.

You could also check the capcitors in there and see if those are not blown with a voltage menter.

If you do not know how to do what I meantioned leave it to the experts pay the $150 charge and move right along with a good tv for another couple years. Please do rate

Vizio Volume Control

I am sure you did this but recheck your audio menu on all your inputs. I have found that cables can go bad so make sure they are in good shape. Are you haveing the problems with all your inputs dvd, cable (direct cable or a cable box) whatever? It is hard to affect the audio by just moving the set. I am hoping that you changed something or the cables went bad that would be the easy solution.

Good Luck!

No sound

Hi, Probably you first have to determine if the "no sound" is the TV or your source (cable box). Try another source such as a DVD player hooked to the audio/video inputs of the TV, if still no sound then you have confirmed that it is the TV, if there is sound, then it is the cable box (in some cases it may be just the cables connecting the cable box and the TV; try wiggling it a bit, might just be loose). If it is the TV, go through the routine of the setup/menu; look for audio, stereo, SAP, etc, try different settings (pls log down original setting in case no change and you have to revert back). If all else fails, try the "thump test" this will help you determine if its a loose/cold solder problem inside the TV. Give your TV a good whack at the side, top or back, if sounds comes on even briefly, it's a loose/cold solder problem, if not then you probably have to have the unit serviced by a qualified professional. Good luck and kind regards.
