    The system is hooked up through our DISH box...I'm having the sound issue on HDMI IN mode. The sound is fine for the radio and dvd player. Now it's flashing back and forth (on the LCD screen) with LPCM and DDigital. I'm guessing that there's some mode that it needs to switch back to cuz it worked fine yesterday. Thanks!

    My problem is very similar. The LCD on my HT-TQ85 keeps flipping back and forth between LPCM and Digital, which has the effect also of making my TV screen flicker and the sound go off and on while I'm watching TV. I'm connected through cable box and run HDMI cables from the cable box to my TQ-85 and then to my TV, which is a Samsung 61-inch HDTV.

    same here its on my xbox360 or my macbook pro or cable box. But im using optical cable and a differnt model. On my samsung surround sound unit the audio just drops out. It plays for about 30 seconds(differnt gaps not all at same interval) and then the reciever flashes from dolby digital to the words lpcm(thats when auido drops) and then will return to dolby logo and audio returns. (note this is my second one because they didnt know what the issue was and this is a differnt model HT-TZ515T and same issue)

Can't get sound thru my stereo and stereo speakers

If it is just the sound from the computer then if you have windows look for the little speaker icon in the bottom right corner of the screen, right click this, select "Sounds" then select playback (while connected to the tv) and chose the tv as the output device (set to default).

If on the other hand the issue is with the tv at all times then try going into the menu settings of the tv and looking for the various sound options. Possibly the remote control will have an audio button that scrolls through various audio options (two circles followed by roman numerals?).

Hope this is of some help.

I've got a Denon AVR 2803 surround sound system. I recently purchased and Xbox 360 and haven't had any success with installing it. Last night I removed my DVD player from my TV and installed the Xbox and...

Hi, and yes there is hope, there's a saying that when something is tedious and or boring to read "it reads like stereo instructions ".The first thing to make sure of is you have a rather stiff connecting cable called a "TOSLINK" cable this has squarish ends and plugs into the "DIGITAL AUDIO OUTPUT" of the x-box 360 and then plug the other end into whichever input your using for the x-box. A dead giveaway to the jack to use on x-box is that it may actually be lit up red while playing. it also may be labeled "PCM/LPCM" versus digital audio. Anyway that should get you your surround sound on your stereo. Thanks for choosing FixYa, Let us know if there's anything else we can help with,and good luck, Prodzilla

I have no picture. Sound & Signal are working

It seems back light inverter board is not producing voltages to lit the back light inside lcd panel to show the picture on lcd screen.
Please replace back light inverter board to get tv fixed. Local tech will help you if you are not familiar with tv repair.

No picture sometimes

If the screen is still lit up then it's your lcd controller which will cause the screen to just be lit up but blank. If the screen does not stay lit up then it's your backlight inverter(s) in this case you should be able to hold a flashlight up and still see the picture on the screen just very dark.

Instead of explaining the SAP/Stereo function to you, the easiest way to get the TV back to normal is while the set is on press the ACTION and POWER buttons at the same time and hold them until the CHK screen appears. Once that does release the buttons and then press the action button again to exit the CHK screen. Your TV is now back to the factory settings and will need to have the channels programmed again. By the way the SAP/STEREO button on the remote should be near the upper left hand corner of the remote itself.
