Re: I have a audio issue with my RCA Stereo Monitor Color...

Some of these sets have a glitch and you only have to unplug the set over night and the audio returns . If not you could have had the eeprom lock up or a problem in the audio output section. Also check to make sure the tv didn't switch your speakers off in the audio section of you menu. Good luck

No audio,tried menu items and selections,nothing.The sound just went out,what do you think it might be?

There is no sound or low volume coming from the television speakers.
Solution Follow this procedure to troubleshoot when there is no sound or low volume coming from the television.

NOTE: Because each of these steps represents a possible solution to this issue, check the television status after completing each step.
Increase the volume of the television. Ensure the television audio has not been muted. Ensure no headphones are not connected to the television. If using a set-top box with a volume control, increase the volume of the set-top box.
NOTE: If the set-top box is connected using an Audio/Video (A/V) connection, ensure that the A/V cables are connected securely to the appropriate video input on the television.
Verify that the MTS settings of the television are set to MAIN or STEREO .
NOTE: If the source device is not set to stereo or is not capable of transmitting a stereo signal, sound may come from one speaker on the TV only, and the volume will sound low. In this case, adjust or replace the source device.
If the TV has a Simulated effect in the audio menu, turn it off . Ensure the televisions speakers are not set as the center speaker.
NOTE: Some televisions allow the televisions speakers to act as the center channel speaker when using a multi-channel receiver.
Verify that the speakers are set to ON in the television menu.
IMPORTANT: If the television has audio output jacks and they are connected to a stereo system, then the speakers on the television may be turned off. Some televisions require the internal speakers or the center speaker setting to be off before audio can be sent out to a stereo receiver via the audio out jacks.
Ensure all audio and video cable connections are properly connected to the television.
Test the television using another source like a VCR, DVD player or Blu-ray Discâ„¢ (BD) player.
Reset the television to the original factory settings. To reset your TV to factory settings, turn the TV ON. Then, while pressing the UP ARROW button on the Remote Control, press the POWER button on the TV. The TV will turn itself OFF then back ON.
NOTE: If your remote control does not have a RESET button or the procedure did not reset the TV to the factory default settings, perform a power reset.
If the issue is still unresolved after completing all the troubleshooting steps suggested, service may be required.

Good morning. I've had this tv since December 2001. No major problems until now. All of a sudden I have no sound whatsoever. You hear a hissing sound and thats it. What would the problem be and how much...


Thanks for using FixYa. Please reset the TV by unplugging the power cord for more than 4 hours and plug it back in. Now check that the sound is coming normally from the set. You’ll need to also check these parts---

Breakdown or overheating of some components of amplifier, wiring, speakers, function settings, power supply and sound detector inside the signal IC processors are fine.

Go to the on-screen-display and make sure you are set for stereo audio. Please check that the on screen display is set up for internal speakers and stereo audio. Also, check any other settings that may have gotten disturbed accidentally. Make sure that all the settings are correct and that the internal switch on the back is set right. Use headphones and check if you’re getting sound through them. You’ll need to check that the issue is with the speakers, wiring or the amplifiers.

If still the issue is not resolved then check the audio chips are fine. If you’re using RCA cables then switch to HDMI and vice-versa. If any of these components are gone bad then it will not cost much and worth to be repaired. Otherwise I’ll recommend that you better buy a new set as a set of this age might not be worth repairing.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

I want to use tv as a pc monitor

You'll have to have a video card with an S-Video output if your not doing so now. Then on your computer you need to go to your control panel, then select monitor settings and set it up from there. Beware that using a television as a monitor is grossly deteriated. For the audio, you need a stereo mini jack to RCA phono plug cable to plug to go from your sound card to the audio input.

Stereo speakers to television.

Please check your tv for any RCA jack labelled "Line Out". The will provide the signal taht you need to connect to your stereo system's Line In jack. Also, to get the Stereo output that you want, yur TV should have a pair of Line Out jacks (color coded red and black or red and white)
