Audio problem with Toshiba 36A41 TV

I have a Toshiba 36A41 TV. There is a rythmic beat in the background of the audio. The TV signal comes through a VCR hooked to Comcast cable. The beat was originally on channel three but is now noticable on channel 13.

Try connecting the cable directly to the tv rather than through the VCR.

Toshiba TV stereo drops out

This might be a problem with the Audio output final stage where it goes from the Stereo decoder to the Audio amplifiers. This problem might not be something that you can fix if you do not have an electronics background. If you do not have a background in electronics I would suggest that you take this to a qualified electronics service technician. If you do have a background in electronics I would suggest that you get a schematic and begin testing around the stereo decoder and audio amplifiers.

I have a constant ringing sound coming from the tv. It goes up and down as I increase or lower the volume by remote. As I change the audio option to "Spanish", regular "English" audio comes out on c

The fact it shows on tuner and not DVD means not likely a audio problem--check all audio settings in the set's menu AND if you are using a box for signal look there--has to be a setting.

Some JVC sets (brand indicated here) also had issues with when watching the background audio (like a sporting event) was louder than the people talking and could be interpreted as ringing--This is a setting in the set called something like "Theater" or "Hall"

Has to almost certainly be a setting in the set.

Toshiba 36A41 pops when I change the channel and I can not adjust color, brightness, etc,and remote does not turn off tv.

The symptoms you describe is the main processor controller is about to fail, when that happens the tv will eventually become unuseable. if the set is more than 5 to 10 years old you will be further ahead to replace the set.

When I use the headphones listening to TV, I get the background sound (eg music) clearly but the dialogue is very low and drowned out by the background music or ambient sounds

It's because the TV's audio is stereo and the dialogue is mono split between two channels. When dialogue hits your headphones the majority of the mono signal gets cancelled. Try a different set of headphones or watch true stereo channels... IE movie channels

I have no sound in tv speakers

Hello mel45y

This might be a settings issue so first I want you to check the audio settings and make sure that the TV is first set to use the TV speakers.

After that is done you may want to see if the speakers are not damaged (physical inspection).

Now here is the part you are not going to like. If the settings are ok and the speakers are physically ok, then this denotes a problem in the audio circuitry. What I can do is give you an idea of what might be wrong and then offer ways to troubleshoot this problem. If you have a background in electronics then this becomes just a task of telling you where to look for the problem. If you do not have a background in electronics, I would advise you taking the TV to a qualified TV Repair Technician for servicing.

Now with that being said you will have to determine where the audio signal is dropping at. Begining at the audio IC using an oscilloscope find the audio signal. Once the signal is found trace it to the path where the audio connects to the TV speakers, along this path you will see where the audio drops. if not right at the audio output stage of the audio IC.

This is how to find the problem, and unless you have specific equip you will not be able to take out and replace the old component.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Toshiba televsion is saying digital channel signal strenth is low

if you're using antenna, (most likely)you need to adjust your antenna to where it picks up the best signal. The picture comes in clear with good audio and doesn't pixelate often.

Toshiba 36a41 television

You should be able to use your remote control to do this.Your channel 73 is more than likely UHF 73 so you need to put your tv in the antenna setting rather than cable setting. Once you do this just input 73 with your remote. Hope this helps! Stargazer
