There have been some reported problems with some RCA sets doing that and it appears to have something to do with a signal riding on the closed captioning part of the cable. It should go away (temporary)when the set is unplugged for several seconds. If that doesn't work, I would then bypass the cable box and hook up the TV direct to cable and see if the audio stays (you may have to run "autoprogram" to search for and load the available cable channels into the set first). Otherwise, you may need to call a repair shop.

Samsung Smart TV makes noise lasting 3-5 seconds then produces Network Cable messages. Started 2 days ago and is happening more frequently.

You could check to see if Samsung has a Firmware upgrade for this issue at their Consumer web site. Doubt it will fix your problem though. Are you using a wired LAN connection? If so then check it and make sure it is not loose, or that your router has not been powered off. If all checks good, or you are not using a wired LAN connection you will need to replace the main board. I can not give you a part number because you did not include your model number in your complaint. I hope this helps.

Engine will not turn over no electrical then a few minutes later electrical comes back on

The very first thing you want to check is that the battery connections are clean and tight! If that does not solve your problem, check where the ground cable attaches to the engine. This does not sound like a starter problem, (that would be a long shot), so check other connections first. You might have the battery load tested... NOT just for voltage.

Tv goes blank for few seconds while playing games

Sounds Like the graphics chip is starting to go. Try CPR in NYC. They usually have a 1-3 day turnaround time, and are pretty cost effective. You can easily ship them your unit. They are faster and cheaper than Sony.

Motorola DCH3200 cable box: sound and sometimes video cutting out

Sounds like your SNR is getting too high and causing the signal to overload. A few things can cause this a bad splitter that causes the signal to bleed and introduces noise, or a more common issue is having a weak signal coming from the cable provider and once it goes through a splitter it causes the signal to become to weak to be stable.

Since it sounds like your cable has been working up until recently, you may have had a cable or splitter go bad.

Call comcast and have a technician come out and test the line.

Suzuki C90 Won't Start

Check your battery cables, especially the ground cable. Check your ignition switch for loose wires/connections. Check your fuse box. Check your wiring harness for shorts and broken wires. When you say "battery seems to have plenty of power" what does that mean? What test(s) did you perform on it?

No video on Denon avr 688

After days of frustration the real problem was with the cable box. It needed a firmware update. Following forum advice I disconnected the cable box power cord for a few minutes, reconnected it, allowed the cable box to reinitialize. Turned off receiver and TV. Turned TV back on and set it to HDMI connection, turned on receiver and all worked fine. Great picture and sound.( Needed to buy an optical cable to go from the cable box to the receiver to get sound from the speaker system. )--the dirtybird

Picture goes out, sound stays on

I am not familar with that particular set, but this is what I would check (assuming you don't have a surround sound system hooked up to it as it would sound like a tuner problem otherwise). If you have external Audio/Video jacks with cables hooked up to the Direct TV box, move the video cable and see if you lose video when it is jiggled. If so, you either have a bad cable or connection/connector. When you say you have to turn the TV off for about 30 minutes, do you leave the directTV box on? If so, then the problem seems to be with the TV. Otherwise, maybe the direct TV box is at fault -- leave the TV on and turn off the cable box for a half hour and try it again. You have a few possibilities here, good luck.
