volume control on tv
its not varied enough on control, cant turn it down to a whisper .
its a neon 32 lcd
can i put a potentiometer on the tele my self. don't no what's in side
as i haven't had a look as yet . how do i wire one up .
two speakers with one red and one black on each speaker is what i would expect to find , if the back is off . 3 pins on the potentiometer . and still keep stereo sound . any diagrams please it should be easy to do this without taking it to tv repair shop . as its only the speaker cables .
i think i should be able to use 1 potentiometer for the 2 speakers ??
i realise electricity will be held in some components and care must be taken
thanks ron

You cannot attach a potentiometer to the speaker cables. You will alter the impedance of the speaker circuit and may seriously overload the audio output IC causing it to overheat and fail. Volume control is done nowadays by digital increments with + and - buttons or via remote. The circuit cannot be altered.
