If you did not have this problem before it was moved, the vibration of it being moved may have caused something to come loose. You MUST transport a large flat screen unit like that in a VERTICAL position because the screen will bounce like a trampoline and it breaks. You will have to take the television apart and check all the connections to be sure they are good.

You need to check and see if there is a firmware update that might have additional apps. Some televisions dont allow it. You did not post the model number so there is no other information

There could be a few different problems. You should first narrow down the possibilities. If you are playing the mp4 file directly from your laptop try changing the source. Put the mp4 on a usb drive or on a playstation/xbox or simply on a dvd. Try playing the file through one of these other sources. If the audio no longer lags behind the video than its likely an encoder setting that your Hisense doesn't handle well. If lagging is still present on all your sources then change the type of cable. If you are using HDMI try RCA or vice versa. You can also separate the audio from the video. Try using a VGA cable between your laptop and TV for the video and use a separate RCA to 3.5mm headphone jack for the audio, Most Flatscreen TVs have dedicated audio inputs for different video inputs. Try out these different set ups and you can determine if the problem is with the TV the Laptop or the cables in between. If it is the TV you may have a problem with the main board but this is unlikely especially if the audio video sync works fine with other file types.

Probably something wrong with the antenna or cable connection to the TV.

I see so many here with no sound/nopicture issues:


1. IF sound main fuse/s are good.
2. If no power or standby check main fuse, standby power supply and any signsof damage you can see---burnt parts etc.
3. almost all these sets the troubleshooting involves checking voltages on the main power board to narrow down theproblem.
4. Be safe and if you do not know what you are doing don't open the set.

Answers to issues:

1. RE:fuses---if a blown fuse is found get a good replacement(not the genericones like Radio Shack). Many fuses are special even aside from amperage--Don'tput a higher rated amperage fuse in the set for any reason.

2. RE: power supply in set: if total dead aside from main fuse the set uses astandby power supply that runs 7/24 and a main supply (some are combined andsome not.

Here aside from checking fuses you want to examine all the filter caps on thepower/standby to see if any are puffed up or buldged up in some fashion--Iattach a photo of a good one---top should be silver metal and PERFECTLY flatand have no brown material coming out on top or bottom.

What happens in the standby area is they use caps with too low a voltage rating(saves money) which causes them to fail in a year or two---the standby runs7/24 and the heat dries out the caps and they fail.

3. Trouble shooting consists of the above and then at some point you have to buyand try a board to see if it fixes it or not.

4. Safety first--no TV set is worth getting injured or even killed over.If set is opened at least look for puffed up and bad caps like in thisphoto.6_2_2012_2_03_27_pm.jpg6_2_2012_2_03_55_pm.jpg

If any or all of this information is beyond you then consider the set is in shutdown as something is wrong===likely in the power supply of the set which is where most of these problems happen.
