I never thought I'd be complaining because I couldn't hear the commercials, but here I am.

Why does my television's sound intermittently cut out?
posted by unclejeffy to technology (4 answers total)
I've got a Vizio Jive 50" plasma television that's four years old or so. Just recently (~5 weeks) the sets sound has been acting funky. Often, when I turn on the set, I seem to be getting only the music from a commercial, for example. I can hear the background music, and I can see the actors' lips moving, but can hear no dialog. It's more common on commercials, but it also happens during the actual shows. Restarting the tv ALWAYS fixes the problem, but it's inconvenient, and I'm concerned about prematurely wearing out the set.
I should also mention that one of the sets' three HDMI ports produces no sound, either.
So, any ideas?
