Help With Samsung TV - No Sound

95
Found 14th Aug 2009
Got up this morning put the tv on and all was working fine. Little one pressed the remote and the TV went off, now there is no sound coming from it.

It's not on Mute, the sound isn't turned down, have tried turning it on and off but to no avail. Tried to see if any wires were loose at the back, again nothing.

Can anyone please help?

Hmnnn, I wonder what the problem could be :-D
Is there default settings button in the menu?
could they have changed the settings with the remote or did they just switch it off

I called Samsung at 1-800-726-7864. They instructed me to power off my TV and reverse my HDMI cables. I did this for both my cable box and xbox and it worked. They said if the problem continued that Imade need a firmware update.

Strange that seeing as though they have only played with the remotes, anything to do with polarity?

You tried unpluggin everything and giving it a minute to go dead. Should wipe any memory, just like a pc.

lol, I caught the sarcasm, BUT, I am blooming annoyed at my tv being broken ( plus I was up half the night so not in the best of moods ;-) )

Then you're posting in the wrong forum :thumbsup:

Seriously though, Does the sound from the TV actually come out of the tv, or do you have it set to come from a surround sound system (ie external source other than the tv)?

If direct from the tv, when you change the volume does it give a visual indication that it is actually changing ?
My brother currently has an issue with his samsung. He called Argos who forwarded him to Samsung who told him his fault (was taking 20 mins for tv to come on) needed to be confirmed by an engineer. He paid £20 for someone to write him something he already knew and now Samsung are replacing it for him.

Long, drawn out process if you can't get it to work.
have you definitely set the tv for HDMI input?

When i use my dvd with HDMI i have to change the settings to show HDMI - otherwise i get the same sound problem

Is it your sky box your connecting with HDMI?.. is there a setting on the sky box - that needs to be changed according to what input you use?
just noticed this comment on another forum...
its american, but is probably relevent for your useage also

i had the same problem when using hdmi with a hd cable box from time warner. you have to go into the settings of the cable box and change the audio from digital to hdmi
have you tried a hammer or other large striking device

Isn't that the known method for out of warranty samsung TV's.

I would go into settings, got to be in there. Change some input output, non HDMI as your not using it.

I can see the volume going up and down when I press the volume button, but nothing happens! No surround sound or anything, just the tv

Nothing has been changed, no settings or anything. And the only HDMI input I have is the PS3, I watch TV threw the virgin box so surely this wouldnt affect the sound?

I'd go in to the system settings on the Virgin box in that case and check to see if the audio output settings are correct on there.

Have you tried switching your PS3 on to see if you get sound with that? That'll tell you if it's a problem with the TV or your Virgin box :thumbsup:

Yes it does. The vaultage from the battery doesn't hold enough charge for the memmory on your mobo. The vaultage from that powers your bios only. Memory holds charge for a while from the psu due the psu not dropping charge when plugged in. If you really want to be certain drop the battery out from the mobo, but I can tell you now that doesn't power anything but the bios.

Any closer to solving it, tried just phoning samsung and diagnosing the problem?
