Question about Insignia IS-LCDTV32 32 in. Television
I bought this TV about 5 months ago, and three months ago the problem first showed up. I didn't have any sound using cable, but I still have sound on my DVDs. Cable guy came and checked it and said that the problem is with TV. I connected cable box to the TV using audio/video cable (like a composite) and it worked that way fine. However, two days ago I again didn't have any sound on any of composites (cable and DVD), for about 2 minutes, but then everything was OK. Today I came home and turned on TV, and there is no sound for about half an hour already.
Does anyone have an idea what might be a problem here?
I have a question? Do you move your Television frequently, OR do you unplug it frequently when it's not in use? I have found that doing either or both of those things can bring on problems, especially audio problems.
I've had the disappearing sound problem twice with my Element FLX-2610. This latest time I was stumped because the full scan didn't resolve the problem. And of course, the sparse manual that comes with the TV contains no troubleshooting advice at all.
But I did find a suggestion on another sveral other sites: Reset the TV. You might have a small reset button (like you would find on a DSL modem) somewhere on your TV but there is a manual way to do it two. Whichever way you do, MAKE SURE to disconnect every single device (yep, it's a pain) and UNPLUG the TV before doing this.
To reset with a reset button, disconnect devices and unplug the TV. Depress the reset button for 5 seconds. Reconnect devices, then plug in the TV.
Disconnect all devices
Unplug the Television
Using the on/off button on the Television (NOT on the remote), depress and hold the button for 5 seconds.
Reconnect the devices, then plug in the TV.
Unless something has shorted out or burned up inside, this resetting, as a last resort, should fix the audio problem. Worked like a charm for me!

Hey everyone I had the same problem ran across a post that said a full channel scan fixed the problem. It fixed my problem!!! I seen like frequence scans on my TV while it was scanning and sure enough, fixed all my problems!!!
I had no sound on some channels, no color on other and some were just fine. Now every channel is fixed!! My TV is a Insignia LCD I think its 15".

It's not the TV. It's the audio setting on your cable box. You need to set audio output to HDMI. I had the same problem at first. Call you cable provider to help you set it if you can't figure it out.

Wow...I unplugged my cable box and Insignia 32" television due to a lightening storm and when I plugged them back in, I had NO SOUND on my TV. After working with the television, I checked the audio setting on my cable box and had to set sound from "TV Speakers" to "Stereo"...Little fix, but frustrating!

This tv brand has a rather exotic blend of ICs, and as they are made in china, the low assembly quality is remarcable. My TV got the TV signal audio OWNED, but still the dvd and hdmi audio worked. So in doing some troubleshooting, so far i know the audio amp IC is working fine, and i am working my way around the passives in the mute pin, next i´m going all the way up to the IC that switches between audio inputs, but i´m not quite there yet.

I tried the full scan and it worked for me. I lost all sound without any previous problems. Hopefully it's not an indication of things to come. I've only had this thing for about 6 months.

HDMI is theoreticly better, and eiser to hook up. Reason being is that HDMI supports the very highest resolution standard there is...
Hope this helps, pls rate as fixya. Thanks!!
