How To Fix Your TCL TV Audio and Video Out Of Sync Error





Are you experiencing an issue with your TV where the audio and video are not in sync? If yes, don't worry, as there are simple fixes to help you resolve this problem. In this article, we will guide you through various methods to fix the audio and video out-of-sync error on your TCL TV.


What causes the audio and video to be out of sync

First of all, let’s look at some causes of this issue. There are several possible reasons why the audio and video on a TV can be out of sync, including issues with the TV itself, the source device (such as a cable box or streaming device), the content being played, or the connection between the TV and the source device. It could also be caused by outdated software, incorrect settings, or problems with the HDMI cable or soundbar.


Change your settings to PCM Stereo

To fix the audio and video out-of-sync problem, you need to change your settings to PCM Stereo.

To do this:

  • Go to Settings on your TCL TV.
  • Select Audio.
  • Check the box next to S/PDIF and ARC/eARC if they're not already checked (they should be). This will make it the new default setting for all content played on your device going forward.


Restart your TV and soundbar

If you've tried the above steps and your TCL TV audio and video are still out of sync, then it may be time to restart both devices.

Turn off the TV first, followed by the soundbar. Wait about 5 seconds before turning them back on again.

If this doesn't work for you, try unplugging each piece of hardware from power sources (such as an electrical outlet) for 30 seconds or so before plugging them back in--and then trying playing something again!

Try using another app

It's possible that the issue is with the app you're using. Try switching to another app and see if the problem persists.

If not, the problem may be with your show or service.


Change the channel

If you have a cable or satellite box, try switching channels. If this mitigates the problem, it's likely that there is an issue with your TV network.

You can't always get what you want, but with TCL TVs, you can get the best picture and sound with smart features.


Update your TV software

If nothing above fixes this problem, you may want to try updating your TV's software.

For instance, to update the software on your Google TCL TV, follow these steps:

  • Select "Settings" in the top-right corner of the home screen or press the "Settings" button on your remote control.
  • Find and select "System."
  • Select "About."
  • Select "System Update."

Install the latest version if one is available. Once finished, your TV will restart itself, which could fix the audio sync issue.
