I connected my Klipsch surround system since day one, it sounds amazing even at low volume levels. I actually haven't heard the tv speakers.

Well unfortunately the service manual has no diagnostics. It refers to the troubleshooting and tips manual. I have the tips / troubleshooting guide for the ST50 but it only has diagnostics for the SOS blinking lights codes. I don't appear to have any basic manual with test point voltages that are not covered by the SOS codes.

The master circuit diagram shows 2 audio amps. One for the subwoofer and one for the left-right speakers. Both of these are integrated circuit chips on the A-board. I had hoped there was a seperate audio board but no such luck; its all built into the main-board ( part # TXN/A1GZUUS ). If the amp is actually the problem you would need a new A-board.

Before going that route I would make sure the connectors are all tight. Just trace the wires back from the speakers to the connection on the A-board and look for any problems along the path. You could also have a "blown" speaker. If one has gone "bad" or is causing an intermittent short it could be causing the problem.

Sorry I dont have a better fix.

I understand why you would like to keep the built-in speakers running. I use them most of the time. When I watcha movie I switch to the receiver and the full surround deal but for just watching the news its just too much.

If you are having trouble with the tv amps or speakers buy a soundbar. A tv of this quality certainly deserves it. I have 2 Zvox's hooked up to my Oppo 103/103D for my 50GT50 and my 60VT60.

The op has a sound bar already. He doesn't want to use it for TV.

On the other hand, the external speakers for our Kuro are still in their box six and a half years after we bought the set.

A lot of people have this attitude about sound, if you have it, use it.

Do any other gt50 owner only get Netflix to top off at 720p. Never can get 1080 or super HD quality streaming.
