Samsung LN-S3252D continuous, intermittent sound drop

by rkbltd / February 28, 2009 4:53 AM PST

I have had this unit for almost two years and had absolutely no problems.

Now, however the sound on the TV comes in and out on an irregular but continuous basis--you hear about 2 out of every 10 seconds of sound. I have tried unplugging the unit. Also, the cable works perfectly going through external speakers.

All inputs?

Does this happen on all inputs, or just with the cable box?

Source when sound drops

Great question! I tried my Apply TV and VD sources and they worked fine through the Samsung TV.

Often times those boxes can be fixed/updated remotely from the cable/sat company. Chances are, it's an HDMI handshake issue.

Hope that helps.
