    TV sound is all static until you unplug it and then the sound comes back until you turn the tv off. You turn it back on the next day you have to unplug it again to stop the static and get sound.

Hi doncat01,

Many stations broadcast seperate audio channels to allow commentary or alternate languages to be heard if desired. If this setting has been altered in your television, it would explain why this happens on schedule, as it would be associated with the programming at that time. I recommend navigating your audio settings and looking for "SAP." If this is selected, turn it back to "Stereo," "Mono," or whatever other option is applicable to your audio setup.

Thank you,
Jason,

No sound on tv but volume is up


If you have an older style television and you have cable-then you have 2 remotes-somehow,the tv part went on mute but when you check your sound with the cable remote-it shows high level of bars which makes for confusion!Get out the old tv remote &select your menu then sound &take it off mute----You'll probably see see--sound off! Turn sound on and adjust your sound bars with same tv remote till just a bit more than 1/2 way up.That way you will not have to use cable remote to make it louder-much.In case,you forgot where you put your tv remote& only have cable one--think you can still get it off mute--byshutting down the cable part(which you have probably done several Xs by accident)---and then with cable light not coming on-right- only the tv light =try & adjust with cable remote by pressing mute button-should see MUTE go off!Then bring your cable button back into play and should be all set to go.If that does'nt work and your tv is still a tube tv might need a new part.But hope it was the simple problem.& that I managed to help you.Bye.

No audio on Sony Wega Tv. Mute is ok. Volume bar goes up and down . No sound at all


Hello, Welcome to Fixya.com

If the mute is ok, you want to check if your have a cable or sat box that the mute on those are ok as well, if so then your looking at a internal issue with the TV that would involve repair.

Try this

1. unplug the tv wait 10-15 seconds then plug it back into the wall outlet.

Also

2. unplug any cable boxes or sat boxes that might be causing the issue.

If you still are having issues you might want to check it into a local repair shop near you, but take this advice for what its worth you might wind up paying more for the repair then the purchase of a nice flat panel.

Make sure if you do take it into a shop that there registered with the BBB and do not have complaints registered as those shops could end you paying more money.

Thanks for making Fixya your first choice, We can Fix most things but have solutions for everything.

No Sound Issues


Hello!
Try the audio out. Run the audio to a receiver to see if the audio is there. If it is, then I'd leave it hooked up to the receiver and save yourself some money. If there is not any low level audio out then I'd fix the set. The only Sony set I've ever seen that was not worth fixing was a 32" model from the early 1990's that had bad picture tubes after only 5 years. I am a Sony factory trained tech. Good Luck!

No sound


Go in to the menu for the sound setup. Make sure that the sound is not on MUTE, or SAP. Make sure that the speakers of the TV are in the ON mode, or any sound system that the set feeds is setup okay for the TV.

It is possible by coincidense that something in the audio section of the set has failed.

All of this has nothing to do with sitting on a remote control...!!!

GE 32GT740 32" TV problem


there are two things that can cause this, 1 there is a muting transistor on the bottom of the PCB that is a surface mount transistor that goes short. this is the channel mute transistor. when you change channels it is designed to mute the static between channel changes. if it shorts then it mutes. 2 the EE-PROM is defective and needs to be replaced. i'de go with the transistor first. if you are unequipped to do this repair have a tech do it.
