Default Plasma TV (HDMI) Has No Sound But DVD Player Does

Tv was working fine earlier then later on when i turned it on there was no sound, i checked the menu settings and everything is in place as it was, the cables are not loose or anything, i even switched the HDMI cables to make sure the TV one hadnt been broken or something, i switched it and tried my dvd player and the speakers finally had sound, but then switching to tv again there wasnt any sound again. What else can be wrong?

What is your source (cable, satellite, antenna) and do you have a box connected? If so which model?

Sounds like your cable box is the issue and has either stopped sending signal via HDMI or it is having a HDCP handshake issue. In any case try unplugging the box from power for at least 1/2 hour. Plug it back in and see if that resolves the issue.

Another more permanent solution would be to remove the HDMI connection and use component (red, green, blue) cables instead for video and either optical/coaxial digital or analog (red, white) for audio. This will deliver just as high quality a picture as HDMI does but eliminates all of the draconian DRM and HDCP handshake issues.


Hope this helps.

If you didn't hear a loud "pop of death" meaning a blown capacitor or multiple blown, unplug your set completely, hold on the power button and plug back in. It may take a few times but it will eventually work. I have a 42" Vizio in which I have to go through this process 2x a year. Remember, this is only if you DIDNT hear a pop.
