Question about GE 32GT740 32" TV

1 Answer

Sound is distorted on 32-inch GE TV when auto tuned

Our sound is "fuzzy" on our 32 inch GE TV. The problem is NOT the speakers, since our DVD works just fine with this TV.

It seems like the fine tuning must be slightly off, but it doesn't have an old fine tuning knob.

The set was manufactured in 2003.

My 32 inch insignia flatscreen won't play sound


Hello,

there are so many reasons why your TV won't bring out sound. You need to troubleshoot first, in order to get to the root of the problem, before a solution can be proffered.

First, connect a DVD player to the TV, observe if there is going to be sound. If there is still no sound after connecting the DVD player to the TV, proceed to the next step. "The reason why I asked you to connect a DVD player to the TV is to confirm if the problem is simply not from the audio cord connected to the TV."

Second, get an headset, connect it to the earphone jack of the TV and observe if there is going to be sound. If there is no sound, then it is glaring now that your TV is having a defective sound card/IC that's why it is not bring out any sound. (Note that connecting an headset to your TV is optional because not all TV's has a space for headset). "The reason why I asked you to connect an headset to the TV is to also confirm if problem is not from the TV speaker. Though TV speaker problems are rare but sometimes, the TV speaker might be defective or the speaker wires may have loosed contact or cut into two, due to one reason or the other. But if the headset doesn't bring out any sound from the TV, then it is not so."

If none of the above seems not to be the cause of the problem, then the above troubleshooting has confirmed that the TV has got a defective sound card/ic. The sound IC/card of the TV has to be replaced for the TV to bring out sound again.

To be honest with you, replacing or fixing the sound card/ic of your TV requires the ability or experience to do so.

Now, if you are convinced you can fix or replace this yourself, please reply so that i can help you further. And make sure you troubleshoot first, before getting back to me.

Regards.

Rca 32 inch has picture but no audio dvd player works fine when plugged in.


Hello
If your TV has audio and video when connected to DVD player, its sound filtering circutary in RF[Radio Frequency] stage is in trouble. You yoursef cannot detect and repair it. You must get the service of an experienced service personal. It needs skill, ability to follow the schamatic diagram, and more patience.
If there is no sound when DVD player connected, the speaker of your TV has in trouble. It can be replaced by you, after unpluging your TV from mains socket, open its back cover, screw out it from its position and go for a similar type and impedence. Just refit the new and give the 2 connections. That is all. Ok.

When using cable input video is good but sound has fuzzy static


Your TVs tuner tuned a little off frequency. It could be as simple as having cable box on where you have good picture but fuzzy sound, use the TVs remote to change the channel and then change it back to proper channel. If that doesn't fix you may have wrong tuning type selected in channel set up menu.
