OK - Have you tried to unplug TV and cable box power cords from wall outlet for 10 minutes to reset, replug back in, let cable box reboot that may take several minutes and check?
If not yet, can you try it now and reply back with the result?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
I will be adding a surround sound speakers as well. I have not set them up yet!
Expert:  Shahid replied 6 months ago.

OK, we will do it later, first we need to get the cable channel sound through TV internal speakers.

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Alright, plugged everything back in! Still no sound!
Expert:  Shahid replied 6 months ago.

OK, do you hear hiss sound from TV speakers if increase the volume level to full?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
No hissing sounds
Expert:  Shahid replied 6 months ago.

This is odd, please press Source button on TV remote and select Tuner as source, do you get static noise from TV speakers now and snow on screen?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Still no noise!
Expert:  Shahid replied 6 months ago.

OK, it seems TV internal speakers might be set Off in TV menu, we need to check it.

Press Menu on TV remote and go to Audio settings, there you will see Treble, Bass, Balance and few other options, find Speaker option and check if it is set as ON?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
It was set to ON. Turned to Off then back to ON. Still no sound!
Expert:  Shahid replied 6 months ago.

OK, we need to connect another video source into AV input of TV to confirm the sound problem is within TV to troubleshoot ti further.

Do you have a DVD player etc to connect into AV input of TV as a test?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
No

OK, so no sound when connect different video device into AV input of TV?

If so, then it confirmed that sound processor chip inside TV has got internal problem and causing the issue and need to be replaced either sound processor chip or entire board to resolve the problem.

However, alternately you can connect Audio Out jacks of cable box to your surround sound system to keep getting sound of cable channel while watching it on this TV.

I trust my input will help you out. Please feel free to respond if you have any additional questions.

Thank you for your help tonight! I thought this might be the case but wanted to see if there was anything else I could do!
Expert:  Shahid replied 6 months ago.

I wish there was an easy or quick fix for the sound issue in TV, you may please use alternate way to connect surround sound directly to cable box to get sound of cable channel being watched on TV.

I hope these info will help. Please feel free to respond if you have any additional questions.

Thanks.
