I have the opposite problem. I have a fine picture, but the sound keeps going to 'static' or just disappearing altogether. I can keep unplugging it to fix it but it's usually a few minutes before it''s happening again.
Driving me NUTS! HELP??

Re: Picture but no sound?
Lets look at easiest possibility,try taping on the set to see if it reacts,try taping in the jack panel area where all the cables conect to the back of the set,dont over do it,should not take much to make it react,If you are familiar with tv service this should help and it will involve soldering electronics but if you are not too familiar be safe and call for help from a servicer.

Hi, Sounds to me like you are almost assuredly encountering a no signal problem. This would account for the auto tuning not doing anything. I would suggest a newer antenna. Local department stores carry a variety of " DIGITAL T.V. " antennas. And as far as the no audio part I have actually "seen " that problem on my own t.v. ( a portable ). When the tuner does manage to grab a signal if it becomes too weak the picture may freeze or go all diagonal or just disappear altogether leaving just the sound. I hope this helps and thanks for choosing FixYa, Good luck ,Prodzilla
If everything else works - there is sound and high voltage (static on the screen) - but there is no picture (including no on-screen menus), this limits the likely area of problems is the video output circuitry or CRT filament connections. Check to see if the CRT filaments are glowing. If they are not glowing, check for bad soldering on the CRT neck board and around the flyback transformer.
Where the picture is erratic - coming and going entirely or changing brightness suddenly, with power off, remove the picture tube socket (carefully!) and clean the pins with fine sandpaper and use contact cleaner on the socket. This source of bad connections can result in a variety of erratic symptoms. Check for bad solder connections on the CRT neck board.
Check the aerial cable, ensure it is well plugged in and getting signal.
If you are using a receiver box, check cables to TV and receiver (freeview, sat, cable etc.), try setting channels on receiver again, if it does not work but you get static, then either the cables or receiver are defective.
Test the TV on standalone , connecting it to an external antenna. Tune again the channels, and save the preset. If still no signal then the antenna socket on the TV may be defective.
Try using the TV with a DVD.
If you can watch DVDs, and TV is not keeping channels preset, and you tried all the above, at this point htere may be a fault in the tuner card inside tv.
Call the phone number listed on tv user manual to get support, and eventually repair it.
well tuners are being made smaller (and there is more cold solder in some points due to heat) so i would look up a new tuner for that tv...and if you know how to solder ,do it yourself it will be cheaper
If you are feeding the VCR signal into the antenna connector,then you could have a problem
with the sound circuit drifting off frequency.
If you are feeding the VCR signal into an "A-V"
jack then you could have a problem with the audio amplifier inside your set.
The circuit board would have to be tested to determine where the exact problem is located.
