Our tv was working fine one minute and the next no volume no matter what we have tried. I have tried the Global Volume Lock with no luck. I tried manual volume and no luck. Unplugged the tv no luck. My remote does not have and AV button. It does work with headphones though.Can you assist with this? I am willing to try and solution that you may send my way.

    I at one time had it hooked up to surround sound and know I have taken the surround sound off but know i have no original tv volume at all no matter what I have tried please help

  • rc74 Jan 17, 2008

    I seriously think that Polaroid should have recalled all of these in reading similar issues with these tv's. I hope I permanetly do not need to keep it hooked up to my stereo in order to get sound. I didn't pay all that money just so I can adlib to the tv shows.

  • Ed Mulrooney Jan 26, 2008

    I have the same problem. I took it off the wall planning to take apart. Then I tried the Global Vol Unlock. The sound came back on. Now, it has happened again. I feel the GVU didn't fix the original problem. I noticed that my sound went out after using the sleep timer.

    my big screen makes a loud buzzing noise. At first the noise would go away then no sound came out of the TV. Now the buzzing noise is high pitched and louder... this is ridiculuos money wasted when it's not even a year old

  • Al consumer Apr 16, 2008

    I too have the same problem. I have had my set less than two years. This set has been used very little. I paid more for this set than any other and have gotten less service. Polarioid is obviously aware of this issue and is not willing to make it right.



    I have went through all steps of volume lock, unplugging, etc. I rerepeated these steps with two service techs on the phone. Nothing works. I have not tried the earphone jack but shouldn't have to. Polaroid needs to make this right if they are to remain in the TV business.

  • whoty May 16, 2008

    I have used the television for two months and the sound suddenly went lower and lower until it was quiet. Nothing I did worked. I think Poloroid should make this right.

  • blackcatgirl Nov 25, 2008

    I have the same problem. I purchased the tv in 2006 and for the first 6 months it was fine. Then it started making a loud buzzing sound. I would have to turn it off and back on. Now it makes the high pitch noise and turn it off and back on doesnt help anymore. Any advice short of hitting it with a hammer would really be appreciated.

  • Anonymous Jan 21, 2009

    Same sound issue here...Nothing but the headphone jack works. Polaroid said "go onto menus and make sure the speakers are set to on". I don't see that setting on the TV or anything about it in the manual. They did say they have an "out of warranty option" but after all I have read I think I'll take it to the only option I see which is to NEVER buy Polaroid electronics again.

  • rhjdorries Feb 20, 2009

    Bought my tv in 2006 and today (04-04-09) the sound stopped working, only thing I found that works is the suggestion of plugging in speakers ... well, it works now. But I still feel like I spent $900 for nothing! ugh

    my problem was simular. turned my polaroid off one night woke up the next morning and NO SOUND!!! pretty mad since my warrenty expired a few weeks earleir! but i have a surround sound system luckly that seems to work out pretty well. but still id like to find a source to this problem to see if its fixable.

  • Dodger510 May 11, 2009

    same exact thing here, only the headphone jack works. I have a speaker system hooked up to it now, but that doesn't even work for some reason on my PS3 games, WTF!

  • katpawlik2 May 16, 2009

    Last night we turned on our Polaroid 32" LCD (3yrs old) and just like most of you here, we have NO SOUND!!! I am really upset to see so many problems with this tv. We had a problem with our Sony XBR Bravia LCD & contacted them, they gave us a memory stick with the fix & we fixed it ourselves in 2 mins! Guess we'll be staying with Sony and not looking for a "deal"!

  • vilchesj May 25, 2009

    THIS IS ABSOLUTE BS! I thought I was the only one but apparently not. This should have been a recall product with this many complaints on one problem. I'm sure there's many more. Hopefully someone should contact Polaroid and we should all get some kind of fix or part of our money back!!!

I have the same problem with my polaroid tv. The sound went out but I could hear it through head phones, so I got a set of computer speakers and plug them up and hide them behind the tv and it sound better than the orignal speakers did inside the tv. This solve my problem without having to buy another tv and you will never know the speakers inside the tv are not working.
Hope this helps with your problem.

I used someone else's suggestion and hooked up a cheap surround sound speaker system through the audio ports in the back of the tv. Now my sound is working; and probably sounds better than the tv did when the sound was working. I too had tried all the other suggestions, but I'm pleased that I can now get sound for the tv.

I've been reading this board for a while and wanted to pass along some info. Appears Polaroid is providing parts for sale. From what I am seeing, they have control boxes around $100. Sounds like a smokin' deal compared to some of the other places that are selling them.

Also, I think they are offering In-Home service at a flat-rate price - something like $225...

It sounds like you've done quite a bit of troubleshooting, which I applaud you for doing. Have you tried power cycling the TV? Simply turn off the TV, unplug it (and any components connected to it), then plug it back in and turn it on after a minute. See if this corrects the issue. If it doesn't, then I would recommend calling our Product Support team to schedule repairs at:

Can't program comcast remote to yamaha yas-101


The only thing i was able to do was to use this link and make the remote learn the functions by following the instructions on the Yamaha web site for the sound bar to AUX. YAS 101
http://faq.yamaha.com/us/en/article/audio-visual/digital-sound-projector/yas-101/7598/6609/

I then used the instructions below to volume lock the aux so that i did not have to switch back and forth from cable to aux to adjust volume and change channels
Setting Global Volume Lock
Global Volume Lock will force the volume and mute keys to be controlled by one device.
  1. Press and hold the "Setup" key until a device key blinks twice.
  2. Type in the code 993. A device key should blink twice.
  3. Press and release the device key for the device you want the volume locked to.
  4. You will get two blinks if the lock is successful.

I have Onida TV Model 21 inch , I accidentally enable the features of volume lock, hotel mode and channel lock and I cannot reset the same. Due to this, I cannot increase volume of telivision


MIGHT WORK IF YOU:
Turn off tv with remote, that is standby, then turn off tv with switch or unplug from wall. Wait a few minutes until led lights go off on tv. plug tv back in. try pushing vt on remote and power button on tv at same time.
If this doesn't work try contacting a local retailer, they always have a list of codes for their salesmen.

Hi:
The IR receiver inside the television is becoming intermittent and needs to be replaced. You might also check the connections on the receiver small circuit board for cold or loose solder joints.

I cannot hear any sound out of my Polaroid TDX-01930B television.


Hello
First make sure that the "Mute" function is OFF. If it is set to "ON", no volume will be there.

Your TV has a volume lock function included [Global Volume Lock].

The remote comes preset to allow independent volume control of each selected device (Global

Volume Unlock). However, you may change the Volume Lock setting to Global Volume Lock so that

one device's volume will control volume in all other modes. After that, you can perform Individual

Volume Unlock on a selected device to set its volume control for independent operation or Global
Volume Unlock to remove all volume locking.
Locking Volume Control to One Mode (Global Volume Lock)
[1] Press and hold SET UP until the red LED blinks twice; then release.

[2] Enter 9-9-3 and then press the mode key for the device you want to control volume (for

example,TV). The LED blinks twice. Now when you press VOL+, VOL-, or Mute, the selected
device (for example, TV) will control the volume regardless of the current mode.
Unlocking All Volume Control (Restoring Global Unlock)
[1] Press and hold SET UP until the red LED blinks twice; then release.

[2] Enter 9-9-3 and then press VOL+. The LED blinks four times.
Volume is now independently controlled for all programmed devices.
Unlocking a Single Device's Volume Control
[1] Press a device key (TV, VCR/DVD, CBL/ SAT, or AUX).
[2] Press and hold SET UP until the red LED blinks twice; then release.

[3] Enter 9-9-3 and then press VOL-. The LED blinks four times. Volume is now
independently controlled for the selected devices.
OK
