    We've been having problems when we turn on the cable box and the tv and there's no sound. We've changed the cable box a few times but still have a 'no sound' problem occasionally. We have to reboot the cable box to get it to work with the cable box. Sometimes even doing that doesn't make the sound work. When we change the source to 'tv' it seems to work most of the time. We we leave the tv and cable box off for a while, it sometimes work.

    Occasionally no sound from any analog inputs, but turning on and off the TV fixes it.

    We have had the same issue since purchasing our 42" lcd 5/07. The problem started within 2 months and has happened 5-6 times since then. Has anyone returned their lcd due to this issue? For the price of the tv, I shouldn't have to turn my tv and cable box off and on until the issue resolves itself.

Did u have audio before ? If so you might have a blow audio amp. If not it might just be a unplugged cable. This model of tv is bad about bad audio problems mainly a blown speaker and blown audio amp.

Philips 42PFL7422D/37 42-Inch 1080p LCD HDTV Picture went out but still have sound. Any tips on how to fix it?

If the backlight of the LCD-panel does not function, (no picture) then Master and/or Slave inverter are defective. Inverter boards are screwed to both sides of the LCD display, if they have revision 1.2 boards then they will need replaced with revision 1.3 boards.

Volume in the tv is not working, and you turn the tv on or off it comes three to four minutes later. The tv was bought nine months ago, it's an LCD 42 inches MODEL #42MF439B/F7

If it is nine months old the set must still be under warranty, the problem you are describing is an intermittent audio problem and can be difficult to locate. I recommend getting in touch with the people you bought it from and get the satisfaction you deserve.

Volume control

I am a Sharp servicing technician and I have seen this "problem" with this particular model many times. I have tried replacing the Main Board and the Terminal Board and it does not help. The reason i put "problem" in quotes is because I came to the conclusion that this is model is just not that loud. However, a few months after the initial production run, BAM, these TV's are as loud as any other TV on the market so sharp must have caught onto this.

My 42 inch plasma wont turn back on after power cut?

We purchased a phillips plasma 50" in july 06 and it cut on and off 5 or more times a day I called phillips customer service they told us it was due to the cable company they came out and changed the tv jack gave us a new box and tested the lines said everything was ok. The problem still kept happening got back to phillips and they sent us a flash drive to update the info in the tv. still kept happening told us it was due to tv being sensitive to power flutuations. well we are now 5mths out of warrenty and the power board blows up! phillips will not do anything to help the person I spoke with admitted we were given bad advice the bill was estimated at over $500 so if I were you if its still under warrenty make them send someone out to look at it, Reading up on phillips tv complaints this seems to be a common thing By the way phillips customer service sucks dont rely on them to help you much. good luck
