I’ve had my 32 Inch TCL Roku TV for about 8 months now. Recently in the past few days my audio has sounded like an echo chamber when using corded headphones. I’m having issues where I’ll be streaming shows on Amazon, Crunchyroll And Netflix and all of the sudden in the audio will start echoing. I know it’s not the headphones because I use them with my iPad with no issues. This is really driving me insane. Does anyone know what I can do to fix it. All help is appreciated.
The first step to troubleshoot would be to restart the TV. That doesn't mean turning it off and back on, as turning it off really only puts it in standby mode. Either go into the settings menu and find the restart command, or simply pull the power plug from the wall. Wait about 30 seconds or so, then power it back up. Sometimes that is all it takes to clear an issue up. If that doesn't help, then reply back here and we'll do some more digging.

I unplugged it and that didn’t work. I changed the audio setting to Dolby and that worked for about 25 minutes. I’ll be watching a show, the sound will be normal and then it starts making a weird echoed sound where the audio is a little more focused on one side of the headphones. If I rewind it it temporarily fixes it.
I first noticed it about early/mid November. Also the audio issue happens with headphones and the TV's built in speakers, but only on streaming channels. There are no audio issues with anything connected via hdmi that I can hear.
