OK, do you get sound from TV internal speakers, OR any soundbar/ external speaker system is connected to TV?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Tried a headset. Do not have a soundbar. Is that needed?

No, I was asking that info to diagnose the issue.

On the sound settings, what is the difference in the RAW and PCM? And what is AVL? Should I worry about those?

RAW and PCM setting is for digital audio out terminal on back of TV to connect external sound system/ soundbar etc and AVL means auto volume limiter to avoid high volume on commercials.

OK, it seems audio amplifier chip mounted on main board of TV isn't working due to its internal failure and causing no sound in TV speakers. I'm afraid you would need to replace main board of TV to fix the problem. Please get the part number off of main board installed in TV to search/ google to get replacement main board price info if you have plan to do it yourself.

If you are not comfortable working on it yourself then you may please use following link to get list of TV repair shops in area which will help to get repair quote...
I'm sorry there is no easy or quick fix for this problem and it is definitely hardware failure that needs defective board replacement to resolve the issue.
I trust my input will help you out to make decision about this TV repair or invest that money on new replacement TV.
