Check to see if the device is experiencing an overload. That should not happen to the device.

Ordinary problems with sound

Sound muted

The sound of your appliance could’ve been powered off. Maybe you just muted the sound and didn’t remember. It can be that someone else muted the sound, so you do not know whether or not it has been muted.

To deal with this issue, you just need your remote. Turn off the mute option. Raise the volume to a certain level such that you can hear it. If the remote is not working, you can raise it manually from the control panel.

Not connected

Even after you raise the volume manually, you might not hear any sound coming from it. This usually occurs if the devices are not connected with each other. Just connecting them can fix it.

  • You just need to connect the devices.
  • Attach the suitable cables to the ports.
  • Go to the setting.
  • Turn the TV sound off.
  •  Then check the sound from them.

Device problem

The connections and the powers are not always the problem. They might be common, but they are not absolute. It can be that there is a problem with-in the devices. It can be broken or failed circuits or parts.
