Toshiba theaterview rear projection tv - wierd sound


Hi,

Bought it in 1998. Sound all of a sudden seems, well, its there, sounds like talking with pillow over one's mouth, kind of. Any ideas as to what it could be? repairable by a DIY'er? Model TP50H60.

Thanks!

Does your TV have a little on/off slider switch on the back, above that external speaker jacks? If so, turn the TV off and slide the switch back and forth several times. See if that helps any.

You might have hit it, or just got a little dirt build up between the contacts. Glad it worked out, if only they were all that easy!

Mr. Chips - Got to your answer by Googling "no sound". Admit also after doing usual removal of tv panels for hopeless look inside. Sure enuf, I DID just dust the back of the tv and must have accidentally flipped off that unknown-to-me speaker switch. Esp w/ my aging eyes hard to see. Thanks! You helped me directly. I still love my 19-yo Toshiba 48" rear-projection tv, and now get to keep it! SteveT
