Lost TV sound.

I turned off my TV about midnight Thursday after watching all evening.

I turn it on Friday morning and there was no sound.   I did not change any setting.

 

The TV is not on MUTE.  The internal and external speakers are set to ON.

I plugged an older TV in to the DVR using an old COAX.  I get no sound from it either.

 

My big set is a Panasonic plasma about 6 years old.

One possibility is the STB got set to mute by corruption of a different remote function, THe remote is programmed to set mute on the TV. To change it to the STB - att/ok - 955 - att - enter

Then try the mute button & volume up to 25

To retore the TV setting - att/ok - 955 - tv - enter

If that does not work try a reboot of the STB by pulling the power feed.

Do you get sound from say a Blu-Ray or DVD player connected to the tv? Possible the tv sound chip has gone out. Post the model# of your plasma, I may have the technical doc that may cover it.

We have a TH-42px75u series, which is about the same age.

Ren: That's just it. We don't know. Maybe something bad, maybe something good. I guess we'll never know, 'cause you're going to guard it. You won't touch it, will you?"

That happens to me once in a while, I just change the channel and go back and the sound is fine.  Have you tried that?

jlumbtx - STB is set top box.

The enter button is last (bottom) button on the right.

Sounds like you have the same TV - Could be a problem with the TV - although you say you did not get any sound out of the STB into another TV.
I looked at a TV once that lost sound from the speakers, but the RCA jack output still worked - feeding another TV. You could try that.

I normally use extension speakers that sit near where I sit.  No sound there either.

 

I played a DVD and got sound so the speakers are OK.

Which Set Top Box do you have? I found that the Panny series that you & I have, do not play nice with hdmi with the boxes, but work fine with Component connection.
