Question about Toshiba 32AF44 32" TV

1 Answer

Sound is ridiculously low

The sound on my Toshiba tv (couple years old) is on full blast and can barely be heard. I've seen reviews on this product that say the sound system isn't the best. WHat can be done to fix this?

    Yeah, I tried the cable box thing, I guess I'll try with a stereo system. Do you think extra speakers (home theater type) or an amplifier and speakers will work? Thanks for the help, I really appreciate it.

If it is a stereo tv, there should be rca jacks on the back of the tv [red,white yellow] try connecting the rca outputs to a stereo system and see if the volume is any different.there might be a loose connection to the tv speakers inside.if you have a cable box hooked up to your tv, check the connections in back. you can also try bypassing the cable box by connecting the cable wire directly into the tv to see if it's the tv. if it is the cable box try unplugging it for a minute then hook it up again.i had the same problem with my cable box. hooking it up to a stereo system sounds like a pain, but at least you will have sound.
good luck

    you can just hook it up to any stereo system that has a aux or line in input for now just to see if it works, then you can hook it up to something bigger or better later.

    let me know if it works.


    p.s don't forget you will need the red & white rca cables for hook up to the don't need the yellow cable, that's for video.

    p.s.s if there is a headphone jack on the tv,try a pair of headphones and see if there's sound

    if that works better than the rca outputs, you can get a adaptor cable at radio shack for the headphone jack to hook up to the stereo rca inputs

    good luck

Why no picture, no sound?

A loud "pop" in any electronic device is the equivalent of a massive heart attack for a human. They normally don't survive them. The noise is from some capacitor somewhere in the device exploding from old age or a power surge. And old age for newer TVs is in the range of 3 years, some even less. It's the way they make them these days...they want you to be buying a new one in just a few years, so they under-engineer the electronics to the bare minimum so they don't have the long-lasting lifetime of the older style electronics we have come to appreciate.

My 32 inch toshiba tv has lost sound , I've heard that a first time installation fixes this but I'm not sure what to do

If the TV has no sound, it will have some problem with it. A first time installation will not rectify this problem, and I don't know who told you this foolishness. If you are not familiar with electronics, do not attempt to repair. Whether you suffer fatal electrical shock! Instead, contact any experienced service technician, or the nearest service center.

No picture, no sound, but TV will power up

Average life on all brands and models is 3 to 5 years. Average repair on this size and type of set varies but is usually from 150 to 250 parts and labor. I see very few sets of this type (any brand) that are more than 6 years old.

The bulk of sets in our shop (over a hundred sets on average) that have failed are under 2 years of age.

Is there any recourse for a new TV that has little sound?

I do not understand why the set cannot be returned but I would be interested to know if the low sound is on TV or DVD only or both.

Some of these sets have a tiny audio circuit that puts out fairly low sound levels---unless a as is sale the set has to be fit to be used, go after the store first for refund or exchange for another brand or Contact Toshiba==set may be up for a exchange if enough folks complain.

Did you get anywhere with this? I have a similar problem with a DVD/PVR from Woxter. I've tried different cables and changed many of the settings without luck. I've seen a couple of posts which suggest changing country and sound settings (to PCM), so I'll check them out before I call in a repairman to check out the circuitry around the sound output.

Volume goes full blast when turned up from zero to just a "1" onscreen

I have seen a similar problem. get to design mode (that trick with the remote mute & the set menu button) & look for a data address in the audio section that is set to all (F)s. sorry i can't remember the exact address. you could always just guess just make sure you write down where they are currently set .
Hope this helps.
