    I have exactly the same problem with my new SAMSUNG Slimfit 27"
    Standard Def Digital TV but only on about 6 channels. MSNBC and BRAVO
    being the worst. Time Warner says it's Samsung's problem. Samsung tech
    came to my home and says if it was the TV, the problem would occur on
    ALL channels.

    But in spite if this, Samsung offered to order a new board and will be
    installing soon. It will be interesting to see if it makes a
    difference. If not then I'll have to duke it out with Time Warner.

    Ditto... with both a Sony and a Sharp in another room.  Only happens on certain channels... very subtle fallout of volume level...

SOURCE: tv volume goes down of its own accord


Some dust in the button to lower the volume on your TV or on your remote control might be causing it to think it's being pressed. Try playing around with it, pressing it hard so as to relieve it of any pressure on the inside.

This problem sounds like a short inside the picture tube itself unless a driver transistor failed that drives the red gun in the CRT. You may have to take it to an authorized repair facility if the picture tube is still in warranty.

SOURCE: Sharp Aquos LC-26D4U sound problem

Well, apparently this is a huge problem with many flat screen TV's. They surpress the volume output from all external sources (like DVD players) so you don't blow up their tiny speakers. They just expect you to add on a home theatre system to boost the volume their small speakers cannot handle. This is a real problem if you are in a boat or RV and do no have the space or electrical capacity to do this. I had the TV checked out and Sharpe said it met their factory standards so there was no help there. We have had to go with a small amp & speakers just to hear the TV & DVD movies etc. They need to put better quality speakers in these TVs. The video is awesome, now work on the audio guys!

Why does the volume on my Magnavox TV immmediately go to 0 as soon as I turn it on, and then after I turn it up and take my hand off the volume button?

it would appear Volume down button is either shorted or something is constantly pushing on it forcing the volume to go down. You could try to press on the down button and see if it feels like it pushes back a little bit. The most common thing is that it gets sticky from grimy, sticky fingers, try to un-stick it using some alcohol on a cotton swab. Other that the only way to fix this is to take the tv apart and figure out the button problem that way!
Good Luck!

Hi im wondering what the cause of overheating in CYRUS III Amp!! Anybody had the same issue, after using a high volume for 30 minutes or so, then the protection relay operates!! Best Regards, Mac

Protection mode is there to prevent your receiver from overheating to the point of failure. Try this. Make sure it is ventilated real well. Put it by itself. Don't stack anything on top of it. Even if it has a fan I us a little fan behind my receiver to circulate that warm air off of it. This works real well. Make sure your receiver is setting on a nice hard surface too. Not carpet or anything shaggy like that. Receivers and amplifiers will go into protect if they are rode real hard. Keeping it as cool as you can will minimize this. You can also turn the bass and or gain down on it a bit every now and again to help it cool a little bit. That receiver has final transistors in it that get war as power increases along with the time it is increased. Keep it cool and your it will stay out of protection mode.

My vizio tv is making a buzzing noise when I watch tv.. I tried turning the volume up on the cable box up and the volume on the tv down but it didn't help.. It's still making that noise.. This doesn't...

Hi, Mary with Dish Network Customer Service. I had this issue with my TV as well. You will need to turn the TV volume up and the cable volume down. The opposite way from how you have it now. This should resolve your issue.
