Hi Anthony, unfortunately Hubbie has just had a huge fit and taken it back to Makro as they have had it for 6 weeks, it came back and no sound. We took it back and they have had it for a further 2 weeks. We collected it today and they tested it in the shop and it worked. Hubbie bought it home and has plugged it straight into the mains, no sound. Plugged it into DVD and BluRay, no sound. Plugged it in via media player, no sound. So now he has just thrown his toys out the cot and wrapped it all up again and gone back to Makro.

Hi Toni

Wow I feel your frustration there

The thing is makro have an obligation to repair that set, its obvious the set is faulty, you know I dont feel that they have replaced the board usually the sound is done on the mainboard sometimes the terminal board and once thats replaced it covers all angles as the signal processing for the sound and amplification are done on the same board

Sorry to hear your trouble

Thanks Anthony, apparently they said they changed the sound card the first time and when we said it still doesn't have sound, they said now they have changed the main board. It is very strange that they have now had it for 8 weeks in total and both times say that they have tested it and it works fine. We are really not stupid people and work with PC's all the time so we do know alittle about electronics etc. I may have to contact you again once Hubbie gets back now now and it still doesn't work in our home. Is that ok?
