Odd thing with my TV sound

I have a very nice 50" Sony Bravia XBR TV.  Last night I was was watching a DVD (it's a great selection from my  Inspector Poirot collection) when I hit the pause button to go down stairs to arrange something to eat.  It went longer then expeted and when I came up the screen was blank.  So I hit the start button and the picture came on.  But the sound was off!  I could not make the sound come back.  Frustrated I got my husband to trouble shoot it.  He couldn't either.  We got back from the DVD part to the cable TV part, but the same problem.....great picture, no sound.  However on the anttena part,(and internet section)  there was sound.  Finally we got it to work 20 minutes later by.........(drum roll please) unpluggng the TV.   We watched it start up and finally there was the sound!  It was both funny and annoying.  I still don't know how I did it.  We tried the help button (really no help) but the sound would not come on.  I hope it doesn't do that again.  Expensive TV.  Don't want to spend another 20 minutes trying to get sound.

Anyone have this experience?

Yes I did twice and it was an electronic glitch. I had to unplug the TV and turn it on again. All was fine.

The tv is a sony 30" I bought in 2008.

This is the smart TV version. You can also get on the internet with it. It was so strange. But a relief to be able to unplug it and get it back. We got it about a year ago. Never happened before. At least I know what to do if it does! The TV before that lasted almost 15 years. One of the first Sony flat screen TV. Remember when they first came out with that and plasma TV? The plasma went the way of 8 track tapes. It had a great picture, but very fragile and broke easily.

I remember the plasma TV. I am just glad ours is not!

Our TV in the living room is a smart TV but I do not have it hooked up to the internet.

I have a IPTV-television that depends on the Internet. No internet - no sound :)

We can access the internet through our TV also. But I don't like to do it. Sometimes my husband does. A computer feels more comfortable probably because my TV is so large.
