    My Toshiba has a picture but no sound. I have tested all of the outputs and there is no sound at any of them either. I do not have a headphone jack on the front or back of the TV. Does it sound like the same problem with the amp?

    I've checked, rechecked and rechecked again the volume, the mute button, the cable leading to the satellite connection...I can access all satellite channels my heart desires, but there is no sound coming from the box!! I'm very frustrated!

    CT-32HL15. Never had any issues until now. I turned on the TV and no audio, checked all channels. different antennas and cables, called Panasonic and performed a system reset, applied outboard speakers, re-checked system settings, visable audio bar goes all the way up but still no audio. Placed another Sanyo TV in its place and now have audio. Any help would be appreaciated. I'm still paying on it.

Most TV sets have an RCA output (that's the Yellow for video and white or red for autdio). You might want to try connecting a small speaker of about 8 ohms to either the red or white connector. With the volume set to midpoint, connect the two wires from the speaker as follows:
1. Center of the RCA and
2. Metal shield of the RCA

Be careful to keep the exposed speaker wires short and just touching the metal connectors of the RCA socket. If you hear audio from the speaker then it's confirmation that the audio power amplifier within the set has failed. This test is possible because the RCA output and the internal speaker are driven from different lines. Another possible thing to do is to enter the service mode of the TV (you must specify the TV brand and model number to get help on it) and check that the sound settings are optimal.

Sony Wega 32 inch tube TV buzzes when turned on and then shuts itself off. If you turn it on several times the picture will stal on

look likes E H T problem. Watch the rear of the TV. If you find blue arc anywhere, you have to check that component. Take care while handling the E H T side near the picture tube.

Even if the TV is disconnected there me dangerous voltage present in the E H T connecting point of the picture tube body. Take service center help.

I share a TV antenna with my neighbour. there are three splitters in the line - one to give an output to a next door bedroom TV, a second gives a signal to their lounge TV with th other leg continuing to...

I suspect there is a Mast Head Amplifier to supply enough signal to split so many ways and the power supply is powered from the power socket supplying the neighbours TV. Switch it off and no/poor signal.

Picture goes off and on...

Most likely your Cathode Ray Tube or CRT is going bad. That model number reflects an older TV. What you are describing is a fairly common problem for that television. If you bump the TV and it improves or gets worse then you know there may be a short.. Either way, I would recommend that you use our Premium Service or use our online resources to find a repair person near you. Good luck.

No picture

unfortunitly sound is one circuit ,,while all the rest makes a picture. hearing a bang could mean a capacitor exploded, your fly blew up..or even you lost a tube. you need a tech. good luck
