I'm having a problem with my Tv. When I try to watch cable I get no sound from the tv. But when I play a dvd I have sound. It is obviously a soundcard problem but Where could I locate this soundboard, and where could I find a replacement?

Re: No sound for cable tv
Is this cable connected up to your TV set thruogh the tuner, the RF input, or the video and audio outputs, scart connector? You may want to make sure the cable box does not have a mute or a volume control turned down, and make sure the TV's audiop setting is not on SAP. Good Luck

If your tv and surround has an optical input/output.Then you can connect with an optical lead.This will then play the sound from whatever you are watching.You normaly select dig1 or input1 on the surround system.
Try connecting earphones or headphones to the 3.5mm Headphone socket on the TV and check this works correctly, i.e hear TV when watching TV, hear DVD when watching a DVD etc.
If all is OK, purchase a 3.5mm Jack to L/R Audio/Phono cable. Connect the 3.5mm jack in to the headphone socket on the TV and connect the red/white phone ends to the 5.1 surround system.
It should solve it. SCART out is not always live in all sources so is not a reliable way to connect.
It sounds like the audio cable from the DVD drive may be loose or damaged. Did you wall mount the TV and this is when the problem started or has it always been like this? If its under warranty, contact the helpline on 0871 2000 463, be warned, if its becuase the cable is damaged by a wall mounting screw, its clearly evident and they will charge for repair.
