Having problems with your Flat Panel Televisions ?

My 42 inch Pioneer 720p plasma display stopped playing sound last night. The picture is fine. We have checked the setup settings and they are OK. Just no sound. We tried the remote mute, minimum volume, etc. and that's not the problem. We simply have no sound. Any ideas? Unit is 4 years old, long out of parts/labor warranty.



Answers :

If you tried all the basic procedure try to check the speaker. Remove the back cover of your tv and try to look for the speaker, when checking the speaker you should remove the terminal that connects the speaker so theirs no other resistance will be read. The common value of the speaker is 4 Ohms or 8 Ohms. Use a digital multi meter for exact value.

I have a vizio model GV47L FHDTV 20A LCD TV. We purchased it 4 years ago, this morning it began making a hissing sound while we were watching it. The picture also got dark and distorted. I've tried troubleshooting the problem and have realized that the sound remains constant regardless of the volume level, or input( even muted). I'm sure it's not an issue with the cable, because the problem persists with the cable box off. I've disconnected all inputs and and the sound bar, but the problem is th

Technika tv - Volume at zero is quiet but as soon as you put it up 1, 2, 3 etc there is a drone with sound barely audible behind the drone. The drone is pretty loud but it doesn't get louder the higher you put the volume, the sound behind the drone gets louder when you increase the volume. Have changed all the audio settings on the tv but that has made no difference.

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

Hi. My Sony KDL32EX400 started to have unusual problems few months ago. Channel, volume, menu, setting, controls stop functioning. (The little green led is flashing when trying to switch channels or control volume, but nothing else happens.) The only function works is the power. After I turn it off it shuts off but sound remains for another 30-40 seconds. Also sometimes display info remains on screen after TV turned on then the same problem happens, as mentioned above. I have to note that it do

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
