Home AV people -- Blu-ray Mystery

My Dad has a continuous issue with his TV. About 4 months ago while watching a Blu-Ray or DVD or web content via the Blu-ray he would get about 60 minutes of good play back and then his audio would turn to crap. He replaced the Blu-Ray (Samsung), HDMI cable, moved the cables away from the power cable and tried multiple HDMI ports on the TV (Toshiba), but the issue persists. He close to buying a new TV, but wondered if anyone has suggestions?

If I had to guess (and i am) I would say bad ground, every time I see static build up it seems like bad ground, possibly from the elec outlet of the house itself or ?

Just my .02

I have never seen a ground wire on a TV power cord

Common problem on Toshiba lcdís made around 2010. Toshiba released a firmware update. Go to the Toshiba website with the model number and see if you can download or call Toshiba to see if they will send it.

Hopefully you can find it. If firmware update work, then itís going to be a board and not worth fixing.

I was going to guess heat buildup or faulty board components that fail due to usage (time) or heat buildup (TV being on for a period of time and components generating heat).

Is the TV over a fireplace?

Here is some background on the Toshiba Regza audio problems from around that time period. https://howtomendit.com/answers.php?id=267571

I did a firmware update long ago on two that worked. Looks like some others needed to replace a board.

OP: you can always get a soundbar with HDMI in/out or use the Blu-ray optical out if it has one.

Edit: and another thread
https://forums.att.com/t5/U-verse-TV...r/td-p/2736685 .
I can't find the docs on Toshiba's website anymore, so probably not supported anymore.

No and not used or left on for extended periods.

Heat buildup doesn't require "extended" periods of use.

Been having a similar problem with mine and started around the beginning of winter. Anything being watched via the HDMI inputs was affected. It was interference with my pellet stove (not heat related). I moved my TV to other side of room and the issue is gone.

Are there any heating devices or electronics around the tv?
