Hello and sorry you're having problems. What is the model number off of the back of the TV please? Also, when the TV is turned on, does anything at all display on the screen?

Okay, then can you tell me what is connected for sources? Meaning, is there a Cable or SAT box connected to the set? If so, please shut the TV and the BOX down, then unplug both from power for 30 seconds and plug them back in/ Once the cable/SAT box reboots, check for sound. If there is still none, then please tell me how old the set is and also if you have another source, you can try as a TEST (for example a DVD player)?

"Cable" is not definitive. Is there a cable "BOX" yes or no? Also, I never mentioned turning it off- I stated to UNPLUG EVERYTHING from power. Is this what you did please?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
yes there is a cable box and yes I did unplug everything as in switched off plug but not take out of socket

Okay, then unfortunately this means your TV has a fault with the "Mainboard" which is the AV processing board and to fix the issue this part needs to be replaced. There's nothing on a user level you can try besides unplugging everything to reset the EEPROM (processor) on the mainboard, and beyond that the part needs to be replaced. Average cost for this type of repair is $250 parts and labor, and is generally not cost effective or a set that can be replaced for about the same amount. I'm sorry for the bad news on this one and wish there were a quick fix. Feel free to reply back if you need more help, or want to reply back with more details. It does not cost you anything more to reply back once you've rated. Please do rate me positively (at least 3 STARS) and I will continue with you until this is sorted.
