Sound issues Samsung series 6

I have recently bought a samsung seriues six 37" tv and find that the soudn quality coming out of the TV speakers seems to intermittently lose quality. I am also unable to alter the sound settings to dolby settings as the menu option is not highlighted. In the menu it suggests somethign about connecting an optical cable but is that not only for an external audio system? I am currently viewing via my HD virgin cable box set at 1080

The speakers that come with built into the units are very limited at best. Better than the old 4" speaker that came in TV sets from the old days, but not by much. Ask if you are not expecting more out of the output than is reasonable.
I would offer that the true design intent is to hook the HDTV into a home surround system, a home system is optimized for and designed for your listening pleasure. I'm guessing that your HDTV is an LCD with a sound bar at the bottom, if so it is for general use and not intended for critical listening.
I have a 61" Series 7 DLP and even with larger built in speakers, the difference is night and day between my surround sound system and the HDTV stand output.

Loud cracking and zapping coming from tv,sounded like speakers,when it was first turned on.Was happening intermittently but now nothing.Checked power and fuse inside and nothing seems burnt or cracked

Something has blown.. possibly a resistor, diode or ??? on one or more of the boards. You should take the TV to a service Agent who should be able to resolve the problem.

For the first time since i bought my 37 inch 2

nadine2433, First thing to do is check your warranty status! Next thing will be research web for other owner's of same model or the 32' size for similar complaints. Try to find out the "root cause of failure" and see if something seems to "match-up" with your symptom. Yes, your cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamp back-lit lcd tv/monitor is no different than any other brand in it's basic design/operation than any other brand. Yes, plasma types are a little different, but not much. If problem gets worse and happens more frequently, the units internal "switch-mode-power-supply / ccfl inverter supply" would be first place I would investigate for a "thermally intermittant" (cold, frosty looking) solder joint on a active or passive electronic component where it is soldered to the printed circuit board. Nadine, your unit not much different than large screen computer monitor w/speakers, Just has a TV tuner circuit added to it and has remote control!!!! If this response was of some help please rate it on fixya. Do some reading in my fixya profile even though it deals mostly with black or blank n black ccfl back-lit monitors. There are hundreds of excellent ccfl back-lit monitor tech's here on fixya. 12fixlouie

Watch tv properly with JVC DVD off

Some philips tv's have a built in aerial amplifier, perhaps if you bought a digital aerial booster it will improve the picture quality.

Difficulty hearing Samsung LCD tv even with volume up to 100%

Some models are just that way. I would invest in a small surround sound system for them.
