Hitachi TV - No Sound

cherryfizzJune 6, 2005

I was watching television last night when our power went out. I unplugged the television set and when the power came back on 3 hours later my television had picture but no sound. (yes I plugged it back in LOL)

I really can't afford to take the tv in to get fixed right now and I am wondering if this can be fixed at home. I am electronically illiterate but my brother has a little bit of knowledge about these things so any suggestions would help.

The television is a Hitachi 20 inch stereo. The numbers I see on the back label are Nov 1993 - S3K058431

This television is my lifeline LOL - everything is attached to it including my internet.



(whose used to love going on television repair house calls with her dad when televisions were made with tubes)

Call up the customer menu, look at the audio setup, see if there is a "speaker off/on" command.

This is a fairly old set, so there may be a speaker switch on the back or the front, so look around.

Thank you for your reply PW.

I didn't find any type of button on the television and I don't have the original remote for it anymore. I don't think y webtv remote can access the television menu so I bought a universal remote to see if I can access the television menu. Stupid thing only lets me access the picture, autoprogramming, channel memory but not the area where the sound is controlled.

Oh well, I guess I'll have to bring it somewhere to be fixed. I just wanted to avoid that.
