Customer Question

TV model 32LD8800TA has picture but loses sound frequently
JA: What's the make and model of your tv? Have you had any issues with the sound before?
Customer: Model Name: 32LD8800TA 32 inch
JA: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?
Customer: menu works. Its attached to a new LG Blu ray DVD player/recorder last Monday
JA: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?
Customer: I seemed to have had a problem for several weeks and so bought the new LG Recorder. I also cleaned the copper centre core on my Antenna that plugs int DVD player. Perhaps the TV is getting old ?
JA: Anything else you want the TV expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: The sound failure is more frequent since this afternoon; I have had picture blackout of picture occurred with the previous DVD player/Recorder, but the LG seems to have avoided this; "sound goes off just as the detective announces who did the crime!"
