Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
The language is in English. Like I said I had sound at one point last night. Then I had it off and on. Then not at all for the rest of last night.
Now this morning I turned on the TV and had sound. I changed channels and still had sound. I tried to play a program recorded on my cable DVR. It did not have sound. It didn't last night either. Then I stopped the DVR and changed back to the channel that I had been watching first this morning. Had sound. I changed channels and had no sound. Changed to another channel and had no sound. Went back to the first channel and had sound. Went back to the DVR program and it now had sound. Went back to TV and tried numerous different channels. All had sound right now. So the problem is definitely intermittent.
One other fact. In January I had to replace the lamp unit. It has not been working properly and I have ordered a replacement. This is supposed to affect picture only. Could it affect the sound too? I have to leave to go to see my wife at the hospital. We will have to continue this conversation tonight when I get home.
Frank, tonight when I got home I turned the TV on and the sound was fine. I checked a couple of channels. I did some things around the house and left the TV on. No problem with sound. After about an hour I finally sat down and wanted to was the DVR recorded program I wanted to watch last night. When I went to the DVR and selected that program there was no sound. I stopped that program and went back to the cable channels. Now I have no sound on the channels where there had been sound prior to my trying the recorded program.
I unplugged my cable box and rebooted it. That did no good. I called the cable company and they sent a signal to my TV. This did not give them any indication of anything wrong. They tried to tell me something was wrong with my TV. But everything had been good for over an hour when I first came home tonight. I scheduled a technicion for Monday afternoon. That's the soonest they can get out. What do I do if they don't find anything wrong with the cable box?
