GE 27" TV with No Sound

I have a GE Model 27GT613, Serial No. 320522825, that worked until yesterday. It now has no sound. You can hit the volume increase button on either the TV or the Remote, and the bars increase on the screen to max sound, but there is no sound. Mute does not have any affect either.

Is this a common problem or easy solution? What should I be checking?

Thanks for any help,

Rick

Good afternoon, arkayassoc:

Yes, I have been hearing from this set about a similar problem. Check the wiring to the speakers for bad solder connections. I have heard a couple of instances where the ground (return) wire was broken loose.

In worst case, the main amplifier board may have been snuffed (but I doubt it). If you decide to go into this set for a repair, a repair manual is nice to have around. Here is a site with secure ordering, fast delivery, etc.:
