Samsung PN-42A450P1D Plasma TV - good picture - no sound

by txstovalls / November 29, 2009 6:35 AM PST

Several of my channels all of sudden have the sound cut out after about 4-5 seconds when switching to them. the picture is fine on all channels but 3 or 4 channels now lose sound after 4-5 seconds. Can't seem to find an incorrect setting? Just started having this problem.

Samsung Plasma TV no sound on a few channels now

My samsung is doing the exact same thing, after a few seconds of changing to another channel the sound suddenly turns off. Have you found out the problem and how to fix.

Samsung Plasma TV - good picture - no sound

I've just experienced this problem in the last few days with my Sansung 42" HDTV. After considerable online research and investigation I discovered that the problem was a result of my having moved my TV and stereo components while painting and jarred the sound jack loose that is connected to the DVR. CI would suggest that you check all of your connections and you may identify the source of your sound problem.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
