My question could either be a panasonic plasma question or a cable question. My daughter was watching the TV. Put it on pause for a minute when she came back,pushed play and there wasn't any sound. Ideas?

Now..let's try th easy stuff first. Unplug that cable box from the wall for 60 seconds and then plug it back in.

Turn it on, let it go through its start up thing and then let me know if you have audio.

If not, I will need to know the make and model of the TV, the cable box and how the two are connected.

Please let me know so that we can continue.
