I have tried all the audio inputs on the back, mute my TV and plug it in and out back and forth and yet still no sound. Can anyone tell me what the problem is?

I have a Westinghouse 16h120S lcd tv. From the day I bought it, the sound volume has been too low, even when I set both the tv and the cable at maximum volume. The cable company sent a technician to my home and was unable to solve the problem. I called Westinghouse customer support and they were unable to solve it. It appears that this is ot a problem with the settings; rather, it is a problem with some defect in the hardware.


Simple test: connect to the tv an dvd player, of any kind, and see if the problem is the same. If it is then the problem is internal - the audio amplifier of the tv is either too weak or the speakers don't match to it. After reading several cus ... Westinghouse PT-16H120S 16 in. LCD TV

Why does my tv screen appear gray with no picture, but the sound is okay? It's not the cable. The cable company came out and said the problem is the tv. All wires are correctly plugged in. The screen is gray then a white block, dark gray block, and then another gray block. The sound for tv shows is on, you can hear what shows are on, but can't actually see the show displayed.

We have a DVR hooked up to our 1989-99 Mitsubishi TV (floor model) still in amazing working condition. The remote control for that TV never allowed us to put the TV on mute. If the mute botton was pressed, the TV would switch to the input mode as if for a DVD or whatever. Hit it again and it would return you to live TV. Cable people have no clue--must be the TV they tell me. Problem: two weeks ago when dusting and moving my tv, I hit the mute button and this time it actually put the tv on m

I have an LG 37LE5500 TV. That's plugged into a DSTV Satellite HD PVR Decoder via HDMI. The TV is new. Before I had an old CRT TV and was using the AV (Red/White/Yellow) cables. The LG LED TV has been working fine, except that I've started to notice a "clicking" / "static" sound coming from the speakers now, when using the HDMI connection. When I mute the volume, the sound goes away, so it's definitely not an electrical problem as far as I can see. Anyway, it only starts the "clicking" after

The TV remote doesn't work at all (not even the on/off button). I have even changed the batteries. The cable remote works partially. I can change channels with it but I cannot change the volume. The mute button doesn't work either, nor the TV on/off button. I can turn on/off the tv from the tv's own power button but when I press either the up or down volume button of the TV (not the remote) or the up or down channel button on the tv I getthe "Video Selection" window.

The convergence board has a +20V & -20V input. The +20V is OK, but the -20V measures about 4.5V when the cable is disconnected from the convergence board. I could not find any blown fuses but R858 & R859 on the Main Power Supply Board "appear" to have been overheated. I can not tell for sure though without removing the board and without a schematic to know what their resistance values should be. Although R858 & R859 are in the immediate area, I'm not sure if they are even in the -20V circuit. Ca

I've had a Toshiba 27A50 tv for just over ten years. I have cable hooked up to the tv without a box. For whatever reason, the last couple months our channel 4 (which is NBC) has a static sound in the background but it is the only channel which has this issue. The picture is fine. Not sure why it would only be happening on one channel and no issues with any of the others. Any help would be appreciated as to what potentially may be the problem and if there is anything I can do or check to help
