Customer Question
I have a 32" Samsung...
I have a 32" Samsung HDTV that's about 4 1/2 years old. I paused it and muted it, using cable. When I restarted it after about 1 minute-- it had no sound. I tried using a DVD" still no sound. I shut if off, unplugged it for about 10 minutes--still no sound. I tried redoing the mute both on the tv and the cable--no sound. The picture is fine. I checked the setup on the tv; it shows it is not muted. Is it dead?
