    Thanks Guy for the suggestion, but alas the problem is still there. Sorry for the delay, but have been out of action for a few weeks.

    That does happen Guy. I suppose I need to get in touch with the retailer as the tv is less than 18 months old. Thanks for your help. Ben

Replace the lead to the sub.
Thanks Guy9

    Then the socket for the audio lead is probably bad where it goes into the sub.

    wiggle the lead and see if the problem comes and goes.

    if not there may be a cold solder joint from the socket to the amplifier board.

    If you are unable to solder, you will need a tech.

    thanks guy9

Heard a loud pop noise on Toshiba TP48D90 tv.Now no sound

Its not worth it. the parts cost alone will exceed the value of the Tv. you can buy a new 50" TV for $500 or less. Time to put it out to pasture.

Toshiba TP50G60 50 in sound went out?

check the usual things first:

Speakers in set did not get switched to OFF instead of ON.

If using a box, or receiver that the sound is not turned down or low--not a bad idea to unplug units one at a time and plug back to allow them to reboot.

If set has connections for external speakers make sure they did not (either in menu or rear of set) get set to external.

Look to see if a DVD player or similar hooked to rear audio and video inputs works and has sound.

Sub Output cutting in and out.

When you say a sub is cutting out are you describing a speaker on the TV? If so...You can somtimes remove it from the front, just pull the grill cover off with care, and inspect.

TP55G60 55

There could be a dust issue inside the set, or the flyback transformer, HI voltage distribution,2nd anode leads,deflection yolks could be going bad. Hard call without looking where the noise is comming from. If you know about the safety issues involved with TV repair, you should be able mto find the problem, but you have to know where to look an know where not to touch. if you have no TV exeperience, please contact a trained tech to searce this out for you, because the bite the HIGH voltage will give you, can make a grown man cry! Good Luck PS please dont forget to rate this thread
