46" Samsung LCD 1080p. Model LN46A530 It was working fine for 6 months, and today until 2 hrs ago. Just had my PC connected for a few hours (have in past too), working fine...

Suddenly the TV has no sound output at all. Not to the internal speakers, not thru the external RCA's to the surround sound, nothing. Not muted, speakers are on, checked all and reset sound settings, unplugged tv, did a little dance...

As I post this, I await my ex-g/f to get home to tell her her newish TV is screwy. It'll make a nice 46" PC monitor I suppose...

I think I'm :hump: lol

1. Did you have the volume turned up on the PC (blow the cheap speakers)?

2. Did you mail off for the warranty, six months ago? Do you still have your receipt?

Does the TV if plugged straight in the wall without the PC have sound? If this problem only happens with the TV connected to the PC, check that your sound card driver is still working OK by testing another audio source. If not reinstall your sound card driver.

If all else fails call 1-800-Samsung to get support. You'll have to go though some troubleshooting steps but if it can't be fixed by those steps then they can have a tech go out to your home to fix it (assuming the manufacturers warranty is still in effect).

FYI - warranty is 1 year parts and labor and if you register the TV on samsung.com your warranty will be extended by 3 months.

I work at a samsung call center. :)

That's what I did with my old 26" Samsung CRT HDTV. Nice that they do that, even nicer that I never had to use it.

Sweet. Thanks.

To clarify, I disconnected the PC and none of the inputs for the TV would generate any sound, DVD (rca/aux1), HDMI, VGA, TV. Tried running the output to the surround sound receiver and got nothing there either.

It quit working as I was out having a cigarette. I checked the reomte but couldn't find any setting the 7 yr old may have inadvertently pressed.

TV was turned up to 24 (/100), The PC was turned up about 1/3, thru my X-Fi, 3.5mm green jack to the 3.5mm VGA sound input on the samsung. I did switch speakers in the tray volume settings on the PC from 5.1 to 2.1 while it was connected, but I recall doing that in the past without issue. I changed this prior to going outside though, dont think I checked it after.
