Sanyo DP32649 works fine for a few minute, then sound goes off. turning the TV off for a moment & then back on restores the sound. But sometimes this will happen ever few minutes for the length of the program.

    The video on my Sanyo dp42840 won't come on sometimes, even though I get the audio. I unplug it for a while & after plugging it back in, the video & audio come on. This has happened 5 times lately. I only have my TV on at night 2-3 hours.

I have the exact same problem. It's a volume control issue. For me, when I turn my TV on and have it on low volume, it works fine (but sounds somewhat distorted). But once I turn the volume up to normal levels, the speakers crackle and then go out. I opened my tv and checked my speakers, and they were perfectly fine; not blown or anything. As well, the audio processor and circuitry didn't appear burned at all.
This used happened every few months for 30min or and hour at a time. Then, about 2 months ago, it happened again, and ever since then it still hasn't worked properly. The only way I got around this was by buying a cheap 2.1 speaker system, and connecting it to the audio output on the TV. Or you could buy a speaker bar or home theater system. I believe this issue has to do with problems with the circuitry in the audio amplifier, and there's not much you can do except add external speakers, or contact Sanyo if you still have an active warranty.
Depending on where you bought your TV (such as from walmart), its possible that the LCD panel was produced by Sanyo, but the electronics were done in China. Walmart does this with nearly every TV they sell.

    We just had same problem begin with this model. It was also bought at Walmart. We have used it less than 6 hours a week for less than a year. Sound was never good. at average volume it buzzed the wimpy speakers. I also, someone else commented, could smell a hot electronics smell near the top out the unit. Now sound quits every 10 minutes, and tv must be turned off and on to restore. I'm hoping to get it covered but its close to one year. Man, the old tube TVs we had lasted years longer. Last Sanyo product I'll be buying.

My Sanyo DP32649 Will not turn on. The green light turns on and off when I press the power button but that's it. there's no sound and the screen just stays black.

Sounds like the power supply is bad.Do you know anything about working on circuit boards ? I bet some of the capacitors need replacing.This is a quick and very cheap fix if you know how to do it.

On the back of the tv is a panel held by two screws.Remove those and you have instant access to the power supply.Look and see if any of the capacitors are bulging or leaking.

Motorola DCH3200 cable box: sound and sometimes video cutting out

Sounds like your SNR is getting too high and causing the signal to overload. A few things can cause this a bad splitter that causes the signal to bleed and introduces noise, or a more common issue is having a weak signal coming from the cable provider and once it goes through a splitter it causes the signal to become to weak to be stable.

Since it sounds like your cable has been working up until recently, you may have had a cable or splitter go bad.

Call comcast and have a technician come out and test the line.
