No program sound - just static

TV audio output vastly different for satellite feed versus DVD feed. Why?


It is possible there are separate sound level functions for the DVD player, the tv and the satellite box, try the different remotes for each by unlocking the volume control on the satellite remote until you get them close or use the device specific remote volume controls. I would also try and use HDMI if available for the DVD instead of composite. If the volume controls are different it will show on the tv, might also go through all audio settings for each device. Some devices are pre-amped or send out strong sound signals while others are line level outputs designed to be amped by the output device, in this case your tv I believe. The HDMI vs stereo audio that goes with composite may be the cause or it could be in the settings of the device. Worst case is to remember to drop volume before you switch back so you don't ruin speakers.

Laptop or Desktop ?
Try swapping the speakers around to see if the problem is in the speaker itself.

I was wondering if there's a way to change audio out from variable to fixed cause I want the volume out only from my surround sound not from the tv I heard If I switch from variable to fixed the problem...


No variable audio out means that whatever the volume is at on the TV it will output that level from the TV. So if you have your surround sound on and if you change the volume on your TV it will also make your surround sound louder with out having to turn up that volume on your surround sound, but if you have your volume muted then so will the audio out. So if it is a fixed audio out then no matter what level you have the TV set to it will output the same level. If you just want audio to go to your surround sound then just hook the video cables up to your TV and the audio to your surround sound. I would guess that you are using Red and White cables... If you are that only gives you left and right audio. Not surround sound, so you would want to run optical, HDMI, digital coax, or the analog 6 channel audio cables.

Toshiba CN36X81 television.. NO Sound... Great Picture. Using the TV2 output of a DISH Network HD receiver... TV2 output is std def, coax output. Using a different TV I get picture and sound... but not...


IF coming in via, the "Dish" networked receiver, please check that this volume is turned way up, on the TV. and then control the the Volume, with the Dish Remote, often this is a problem, as one is turned down, and the other cannot turn that up, simply try syncing the Volume controls, UP on TV, control the Audio with dish remote. thats all i can think of. Check by feeding a signal IN from an AV, source, ie: Yellow, Video, & Red& White, Audio. Turn TV UP and check, IF it responds to this all is well. If NOT then you do indeed have a fault, with the TV.

Remote doesn't control. batteries are good, but there is no apparent connection between the remote and the TV. It is in use with a Comcast turner-DVR, which works fine, but I have to turn on and adjust...


Are you using Comcast remote to control the TV? When you program the Comcast remote to control your TV, it will do two functions: on/off, and Volume control. The Comcast can also be programmed not to control the volume of the TV (TV volume will have to be set at about mid level manually, then the Comcast box will send out variable sound level to the TV), just on/off ONLY.

Used receiver at different location for 3 months.


Had repair man come. The coax connection going to TV from receiver had went bad in the receiver. The other connectors in box worked but not the coax anymore that is why the box worked on other TV since using video and sound cables. Got new box for signing up for another 18 months with Direct TV. Didn't have to have splitter to just get Satalite so that wasn't the problem at all. Any of the splitters I had would have worked.

32 inch tv goes from normal sound during program to extreme loud


May be a defect but, if you notice the sound changes with different channels or movies or HD or Standard, look for a volume limiter control button in the menu setup under audio control. Sometimes the menu has a control that you can turn on to limit different volume levels during the shows origination.

Audio volume level


Hi, I'm guessing your turning up the volume on the TV box to control the volume of your speakers. By doing this your only controling the audio strength coming out from the TV box.

What you should be doing is turning up the volume on your TV or amp feeding your speakers rather than the direrct TV box. The level of the speakers may have been reduced form last week (other people messing about with your equipment?) which is the reason why you have to turn it up to 30 rather than 10.

Another problem could be a loose audio connection from you direct TV box to your amp or TV. Have you tried a different source such as a DVD player, and does the sound on that seem alot quiter than before? If the volume of this is alot quiter also it could be a problem with your speakers.

Hope this helps.
