First, check to ensure that the HDMI cable is properly plugged into the TV and the device you are trying to use it with.

Do Monitors Have Sound?
Many monitors do not have built-in speakers, even though some do. Incorporating speakers inside a monitor is an extra expense for the manufacturer, much as wireless headphones.

Corrupt or missing audio drivers may blame your HDMI no sound issues. You may be able to resolve the issue by running a sound driver upgrade. It is possible to download the correct sound card drivers manually or automatically.
How Do I Get My External Monitor To Play Sound?
Sound Control Panel may be found in the Related Settings section in the upper-right-hand corner and is accessible by clicking on it. This will cause a new window to appear.

Sometimes, a Bluetooth headset can be the reason for your monitor speakers not working. When using a Bluetooth headset, try to connect it to another device to see if it is a problem.
If the headset is not the problem, then you may need to adjust the settings on your computer or monitor. Check the volume on your computer and ensure it is turned up.
