Can't change from Mono to stereo- No original remote

I can't change the smart sound from Mono to stereo without the original remote RCL9UB/04. Right now I have 2 universal remotes that I have tried. I can get all other options to work but this one. The original remote had a button for smartsound and that got you to the menu with all the audio options. Any codes or ways to get around this?

SOURCE: Remote control codes for Symphonic tvcrg13

You can find the remote control codes for different brands of devices from

If none of the codes work then we have two other solutions:

1. Searching For Your Code

If you have tried all of the set-up codes for your brand of equipment ,or your brand is not listed, and you are still not able to get the unit to respond, try the following procedure to search for your code.
If you don't find a code that works, the remote will flash four times when you reach the end of all the codes for this device type.

  1. PRESS the button for the device you want to program, (TV, VCR, CABLE, etc.), then RELEASE.
  2. PRESS and HOLD the SETUP button until the red LED flashes twice, then RELEASE.
  3. ENTER 9-9-1 (two blinks on the remote)
  4. ALTERNATE slowly between the POWER key and the DEVICE (TV, VCR, CABLE, etc.) button until your device turns off. (On VCR, LD, and CD players use PLAY instead of POWER)
    Make sure that the remote is pointed at your device during the search, You may have to press this sequences of buttons up to 100 times to search the entire library of codes.
  5. When your device turns OFF, PRESS the SETUP button and RELEASE it to lock in the code for your device.

2. Learn the buttons from the original

Line up your original remote and the head-to-head before completing the following steps.
  1. PRESS and HOLD the SETUP button until the red LED flashes twice.
  2. PRESS 9 - 7 - 5, the red LED will flash twice.
  3. PRESS the DEVICE key where you wish to learn the function. The next 3 steps must be completed within 10 seconds.
  4. PRESS the button that will receive the learned function, the LED will flash rapidly.
  5. PRESS the button on the original remote to be learned.

Now you can repeat steps 3 through 5 to learn other functions onto other keys or press and hold SETUP until the Cinema's red light flashes twice to lock in your new feature. (If the red light does not blink twice, stop and repeat steps through 6).
To test the new feature, press and release the device key in which the new feature was learned followed by the key on which the feature was learned

This is the user's manual for a Phillips remote control. There is a list of codes in it. They should be rather universal. There's also instructions as to how to program it. I believe that there is a way to program it without using the codes.

Programming with Code Search

1. Manually turn on the device (TV, VCR, etc.) to be controlled.

2. Press and hold Code Search button until the red indicator stays on. Release the Code Search button.

3. Press and release the desired mode button (TV, VCR, etc.). The red indicator blink, then stays lit.

4. Press the Channel Up button repeatedly (up to 300 times) until the device could be controlled changes channel. The red indicator blinks, then stays lit. If you accidentally overshoot the code required, press the Channel Down button to backtrack through the library until the device changes channel. Pressing Channel Up changes direction to forward again. Press and release the Mute button to install the code.

Hope this helps :)

Stereo only playbacks in mono. it used to play stereo

Stereo is actually two identical amplifiers which when the left and right of a stereo signal is fed into the respective inputs will reproduce the stereo sound through the left and right speakers.
Mostly there is a mono/stereo switch so if only a mono signal is available it is reproduced through both speakers.

You don't make it clear whether the playback is in mono or half a stereo?

If playback is in mono it will emerge from both speakers but the directional element will be absent. If the playback is in half a stereo the sound will emerge from one speaker only or mostly one speaker.

Most common problem is the failure of one of the amplifiers which could be electronic or the failure of any of the various switching usually used in such things.
The amplifiers can be tested by injecting a signal into each amplifier input and will be found satisfactory if the sound emerges from each speaker in turn at a similar volume.

It will usually default to Stereo and still show mono--answer is to manually try (usually not possible) you need to get into the menu with the original remote---Philips at my last count had over 25 different IR codes for their products==many of which are not available with universal remotes etc.

Have an Aiptek HD 12 1080p with Azden wireless mic system. no sound with wireless mic, but sound works on camcorder without the wireless.

you need to use a mono-to-stereo cable, the azden is a mono output mic by the aiptek is a stereo input and you are shorting out the phantom power with a mono plug in a stereo jack.

Take your remote, go to menu, scroll down until you see sound settings, when you see mono/stereo, use the right arrow and click it until cursor is over stereo, next press enter, that should restore your stereo sound.

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.

Audio only has mono how do you change it

If you open the menu,there should be an option for sound.If you have a universal remote,you will probably have to do it with the buttons on the TV.SAP and stereo are about the same.It most likely cycles through mono,stereo,SAP with the volume button.Good luck!
