westinghouse LD-425 series sound issues

by adhdavid / June 3, 2011 5:09 AM PDT

I have a new 42" westinghouse LD-425 series HDTV and the sound from the TV is very tinny. Almost like it's coming from an old transistor radio. I adjusted what settings I could but it still sounds like crap even compared to my old non-flat screen. Also, when the connected stereo receiver & speakers are on together with the TV speakers I get an awful echo, as if there is a slight delay. Other than only using the TV with stereo speakers only is there a solution (I need a new receiver as 1 channel blips intermittently so meanwhile it's a drag. Suggestions on that front too?)?

Why isn't return or a call to support an option?

As to the echo, isn't that proper and would happen in other sets? That is, while there are boxes that can delay audio why not just turn off the TV speakers?

I have having a similar problem with my LED (same model) and for some odd reason the audio out to my external speakers just stopped working. I believe someone sat on the controller. In the manual it saying "sub-menus" which I can not access. Any suggestions from someone with this tv (Westinghouse LD-425 series going into Sony Blu-Ray Model number BDV-E280). All settings are correct on my Blu-Ray player and when it is on that channel (hdmi 1) the speakers play and sound great. Just the audio from the tv itself to the blu-ray player.

But since this is off the discussion topic it's best to start your new discussion.
