Watching live or recorded program, there is no sound at all.
It just stopped working mid-program.
Extended warranty provider is out-of-business (no surprise there)

Is it an easy sound board swap?

Any suggestions would be helpful.

I'm wondering why you have a nice TV like the 850, and are using the TV speakers? The last thing I would do is replace the TV. The first thing I would do is upgrade your sound options.

Maybe you use the TV speakers for easy access to audio and video, and in that case I recommend getting a remote that can turn everything on with one button.

The easiest solution that I know will work (unless the problem is with your input device): get a sound bar.

I was wondering if anyone knew of any quick fixes for this dithering (dot crawl) I'm seeing so often. I only usually see it on bright sky shots (blue/white/orange, etc) and it is quite distracting. This occurs on HD signals via verizon fios and are 1080i signals. Any ideas on how to fix this besides calibration?

Last month, I added a Vizio sound bar to my TV and it made a world of difference. The surround effect is remarkable.
I mounted it just below the TV base and added an extension to the spare input, which allows me to connect my Smartphone or MP3 player, as well. I also purchased a second remote for my wife. It seems that the surround sound bothers her, so she can turn it off when we are both watching.

Check the settings. Also see if you get any audio from the auxiliary connectors on the rear.
