Facing TV Problems? Ask a TV Technician.
Hello, What sources have you tried on the TV with no audio? Is it simply a cable box? Have you also tried another source such as a DVD player? Or are you certain the problem is with the TV and are looking for repair components? Let me know.
Okay, are you looking to repair this yourself please? The Mainboard is what processes all of the audio, and if there's no sound regardless of source- then the mainboard needs to be replaced.
If so, then you're looking at replacing the part at the link below:
This is a $130 part- and is showing out of stock at all locations I've checked. However you can try searching using the part number listed at the link.
Okay that changes things- let's back up.
After you removed the external speakers, did you go into the MENU, then select AUDIO and turn the internal speakers back on??
Please scroll up and read all replies. I see the TV produces startup melody in your original post. Please review everything I've posted and then reply back.
Go to MENU- scroll to AUDIO- click on it. Let me know what options you have.
If you need further assistance let me know. Please do not forget to click a POSITIVE RATING before you go- as it's how I am credited for my work. You can follow up at any time, at no additional cost.
Please keep scrolling down. Are those the only options you have?
Also, when you plugged into the Apple TV, did you notice next to the HDMI plug on the TV, a jack labeled "Audio In"?
This is an older set- and it requires an audio connection as well when using HDMI- which your Apple TV likely does not have. That is why you have no sound. You would need to purchase a converter, or a modern TV in order to get sound when using HDMI I'm afraid.
DVI is digital video input only- it has no audio at all. That is why there is no sound. Also when you select a static screen- the TV automatically mutes the signal- because there is nothing but static and it senses that.
Yes working perfectly with external speakers correct?
Was it working with the Apple TV before?
The issue is not needing a cable- it is that the Apple TV box has no audio outputs that you can connect to the TV- your TV is older and uses DVI- not HDMI- that is the problem. You either need to purchase the older Apple TV box that uses red,blue,green,red and white connections- or you need a different TV.
Okay then that doesn't make any sense. The DVI jack on the TV does not transmit ANY audio at all unless you have a separate audio feed. I will opt out and perhaps someone else can help.
