I came home and there was no volume coming from the TV. The volume has gone somewhat.. I turn it to the max and I can here some sound but the station sounds staticy. The picture is fine. I tried un-plugging and replugging.

Do a reset to this set, and then check. There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here.

Service mode entry, adjust and exit procedure to many popular brand TVs are given. Never forget to exit the service mode, after all adjustments have been done.
The problem is on the board with the controls----if remote receiver is not on same board disconnect that board--if it is unsolder the vol and channel buttons--the front buttons have priority over the remote--buttons will look fine but the switch under each will be your problem---better hope it is as only other cause is a microprocessor gone mad.
If you have a Ohm meter I can tell you how to prove this--going to have to get at the buttons--if you want to prove it is or is not a issue with the micro switches you are going to have to unsolder or test them.
First, TURN THE VOLUME DOWN. We don't test with max volume any more than we start our cars with the accelerator floored.
How is the audio from your TV getting to the HTS? Name names and be specific.
Your TV audio output may be dependent on its volume control. Many TV's have a FIXED setting in their setup so you can lower or turn their speakers off while letting REAL electronics and speakers handle the sound duty.
OR, you could (and should) bypass the TV entirely as an audio source and go to the cable box's audio output.
Same problem with my HTS8100. Little-to-no sound. Sometimes sound comes on very intermittently. I downloaded the software patch from the Philips website and installed it. This fixed the sound problem for about a week, then the problem came back. I'm not sure what else to do.
some devices these days have a built in volume control, try using your remote for which ever dvd player or satalite bix you use, on push the volume up button on it while you have the volume on the tv maxed out so that you will be able to tell a defference if it works or not.
Good Day, corilyn;
Several things that you may try:
1. Unplug TV and Cable/Sat box for 3-4 minutes, plug all back in, that's resetting the devices.
2. Some boxes have volume controls, make sure 'box' volume are turned to max.
3. Go into TV's customer menu, go to audio section, make sure speakers are turned on/ set to internal speakers.
If you have satellite, I am assuming you at least have a converter box hooked up. If so, make sure the converter box volume is set at its max. There may even be a volume setting in the converter menu that forces the volume output of the box to always be at full so that you don't get variations in audio when changing channels. Warning...before attempting this, please turn down the volume on your tv to at least the middle setting so you don't blow your tv speakers if this works.
I would suggest that you smash
Philips HTS w/a hammer!
I had better sound from TV alone! Only 2 speakers put out sound from TV. Recordings from DVR can not be heard very well w/all volumes at max. System sucks! You get what you pay for! $2500 LCD TV sounds worse w/Philips HTS than my son's $300 TV! ALL cables hooked up as instucted!!!!
