It’s time for your best TV show, and you turn on your TV to watch and relax. The TV comes on, the show is running, but you can’t hear any sound, and the TV isn’t muted. This experience can infuriate even a saint!
Before you throw an epic tantrum, let’s take a look at the various ways to address this issue.
Why is there no sound coming from my TV?
There are several reasons that could be causing your TV sound to have no sound, ranging from wrong settings to bad HDMI input. It could also be that :
- TV or external speakers were set at a very low or muted volume
- Incorrectly set up audio settings
- Incorrectly connected external speakers or soundbars
- Media players, DVD players, and gaming consoles aren’t connected to the TV because of misconfigured settings or connections that aren’t hooked up
- Television components, external speakers, or media players may have malfunctioned
Ways to fix no TV sound
- Raise the volume of your TV
- Inspect your TV and other connected devices’ audio settings.
- Switch off and disconnect your TV and connected devices.
- Have a thorough look at the TV cables and ports and inspect those on your devices. Ensure that they are well connected and that no dirt or dust accumulated in the ports. If you discover an issue with the connections or debris stuck in the ports, it could be that the HDMI sound cable is faulty, and this issue can stop sound on your TV.
- Replace your current media device with another one, or switch the TV’s speaker output to the internal speaker to confirm if it solves the sound problem.
- You might want to look at your device’s audio settings as the sound issue may be associated with it. Switch the device off, disconnect it and wait for 8-10 seconds. Re-do the fourth and fifth steps above on this particular device; afterward, reconnect it and switch it on. Ensure you install any available software update, and if this doesn’t fix the sound issue, connect the device to a different TV, or reset the device to its default settings.
- See if there are any software updates available and install if available. After installation, test the sound again.
- If all of the above fail, factory reset the TV to its default settings.
