TV Repair Questions? Ask a TV Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello and sorry you're having problems.By far the most common cause of this problem, is a glitch in the cable box processing.Please follow the steps below:1) Shut the TV off, and then disconnect the cable/SAT box AND the TV from power (unplug their power cords).2) If using an HDMI cable, disconnect and reconnect the HDMI cable on both ends when the cable box is unplugged from power (make sure it's secure on both ends).3) Press and hold the power button on the TV itself (not the remote) for 10 full seconds while the set is unplugged, then release the power button.4) Plug the cable box AND the TV back into power, then turn the TV on and attempt to watch a program.
This should restore the sound. However if it does not, then please try another source- such as a DVD player on the TV and see if that has sound. This tells us whether or not the TV, or the cable/SAT box itself is causing the problem.

Okay if the DVD is working with sound then the issue is your Digital Soarview box is faulty and the reboot of the box is the only thing that can correct this. The power button procedure with the TV does not need to be done- since the DVD works fine on the set. I would suggest trying one more reboot of the Soarview box and beyond that this would indicate a processor failure in the box.
Sorry, there is no way to provide remote assistance for a Soarview box, I'm not sure why the site even offers that.

Pull the power cord out of the box fully for 30 seconds and plug it back in for a full reboot. If the issue persists, then please tell me how old the Soarview box is, and is this provided by your cable/SAT provider, or did you purchase it outright?
Yes, unfortunately since the issue is isolated to the digital box, and the TV works fine using the DVD, this concludes the issue is something the provider needs to address.
