Question about Toshiba 27AF42 27" TV

1 Answer

Stero sound comes in and out

While watching a program the sound will become rich and come from the Stero Speakers then it goes back to a Mono sound and remains there most of the time. Sometimes the background sound is higher in volume then the people speaking. Most of the time however the Stero sound just does not work. We have been on cable and Antenna and neither way works. Nor does it work when playing a DVD. Any suggestions would be helpful. I've been an Aviation Electronic Technician while in the Navy and can do some trouble shooting and don't have a problem going inside if need be. Thanking you in advance. Regards, Ken Fette

Re: Stero sound comes in and out

What if you tap the side of the set when is doing it only to see if it reacts,if it does the you know you have a loose conection,sometimes you have a separate board for the stereo amp and the speakers conector plugs in ,sometimes in all in the main board and the speaker wires conect to the jack panel,The speaker conector is a good place to start.Be careful.

Can't change from MONO to AUTO mode

Can't make sound from mono to auto is your problem I thinks and posts this solution.
Hit the "Menu" button and surf through, come to "Sound Adjust" window.
The settings allow you to change and adjust sound in your TV. There are Bass, Treble and Balance control to adjust to your individual taste.
To adjust them
1. Press Menu button.
2. Press UP or DOWN button to select the desired item.
3. Press => or 4. Press EXIT button when finished.
When adjusting the parameter of "Balance" control, always set it to mid position to get stereo sound from both speakers. If it is set to any extreme end, there will be no output from the speaker of that side, and will hear as mono.
If you press "0" [Zero] button, you can reset the sound settings to it Factory settings.
To select 'Streo mode;
1. Press "Menu" button.
2. Press UP or DOWN button to select MTS [Multi-channel Telivision Sound].
3. Press => or [The ON AIR arrowtells you if a broadcast is in stereo AND/OR contains the SAP.
Press "Exit" button when finished.

Keep the TV in stereo mode to get the best sound quality. The sound will work in stereo

mode even if a certain broadcast is in mono sound only.

Choose the mono setting to reduce excessive noise on a certain channel or broadcast.
Selecting SAP will allow you to hear an alternative soundtrack, if one is available.

Under the channel it says SAP and no sound comes out on some channels,on other channels its says stero and works fine how can i fix the problem

I found this information in the manual, and perhaps it will help:

1 Switch the audio.

• Every time you press [AUDIO], the audio will

be switched as below.

MAIN : Outputs main-audio

SAP : Outputs second audio channel
MONO : Outputs mono-

Also the manual says this about SAP:


(Secondary Audio Program)

Second-audio channel delivered

separately from main-audio channel.

This audio channel is used as
an alternate in bilingual broadcasting.

Here is a link for the manual, in case you want to go over the settings. I'm thinking this is a setting problem in the menu, but it can be a physical problem with a cable line.
Of course it could also be a trickier problem, but check your settings, check the cable line with another TV if possible, and then contact ILO Support for help, in the event nothing fixes it.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

How do I get my rca truflat tv to get out of mono?

Press the MTS on the remote control handset to select STEREO, MONO or SAP. All the options will be available only when the current TV channel is broadcasting that option. Channels will not always carry programes, that have all MTS options. If "STEREO" appears on the screen when you select a channel means stereo sound is available with current programme. You can hear sound from both speakers. If broadcast is not strong and clear, stereo sound will not be available. Press "MTS" button to change it to "Mono". This will eliminate the noise. If "MONO" appears on the screen when you select a channel, stereo effect will not be availabe, even though you have set it to stereo. If "SAP" appears when you select a channel 'Second Audio Programe' [SAP] broadcasting is available for that programme. Press the "MTS" button to 'SAP' and you can hear that programe in different language or some other kind of audio.

My Aiwa Colour TV, model No. TV-A2019, has developed audio problems. 1. The audio output from the speaker is high even when volume is set at level one. Audio output is constant for volume level 1 to...

You just come aroung the sound decoder section of your tv. Decoder problems may cause the fult you pointed out. Since all the controls are electronically controlled, and all are through sound decoder, which converts sound to stereo the problem must be there. Since sound comes from two channels are ok, there is no problem around sound output. Check for some soldering loose contact, wire socket loose cotanct also.

Cannot get stereo sound to stay on stero - keeps dropping back to mono then back to stereo

Before we strike at the some cases you may be getting a bad audio signal through cable or satellite signal. Atmospheric conditions this time of year are becoming inclement as we speak. We must be patient before we pull the cover off the TV. Wait and see.

Speakers in a toshiba 35 tube blown

I spent hte whole day moving my girlfriend and the only thing I got out of it was a TV with no sound coming out of it. I turned the speakers "on" in the menu screen, then i used the speaker output of the tv to a stereo or a couple of cheap speakers. Or connect 1 speaker and set the tv to mono. Hopefully your tv has some form of audio out besides the built in speakers. Good Luck

Speakers have died?

Probaby the stereo decoder IC went bad or a supply voltage to it is too low or noisy. If it has audio output jacks on the back of the TV, connect it to an external amplifier and see what that sounds like. If it is ok in stereo or mono mode then the amplifier in the TV is bad. This will prove that the stereo decoder is ok.

Audio noise

Do you hear the noise from the speakers or the back of the set. If its from the speakers you could have a weak signal that is making the streo demodulator react and make funny noises. Try going into the audio menu and switching the stereo to mono or taking it out of expand mode. If its vcomming from the back of the set then sopmething like a high voltage or small coil is "singing" and not alot you can do except have the set repaired by a local repair person. Good Luck
