Mono/stereo flashes in upper left tv

This is the third tv this has happened on, all different brands. In the upper left corner the words mono and stereo sometimes alternate sometimes together with a /. I have a seperate sound system hooked up and sometimes when both words are on, I get a loud crackling sound. Usually it stops when the words go away,but once I had to turn off the sound system. Anyone know how to get rid of this? Thank you. I saw something similar on this website, but the only answer post was someone whose "solution" was to take it back to WalMart. airmac19

Re: mono/stereo flashes in upper left tv

The mono/stereo is an indicator of the audio signal that the TV is outputing. Like most car radios, they have an indicator that tells you when a station in coming in clear, which may be just an LED or a light. When the signal is weak or when your on a non-stereo station the indicator will not be on. What signal are you providing to the TV? Cable, OTA, STB output??? low RF signal level could be the cause for this.

How do you stop the word "stereo" from flashing in

You have either a bad cable or weak signal causing the stereo to go in and out. either try a new cable from the outlet (if you have a splitter, disconnect all but the tv and try it). or switch to MONO in the config setup.

Sharp aquos a box with mono and stereo and channel 3

Commercials are broadcast in lower quality than the programs, and it is normal for the signal to change when going to commercials. If you are watching ATSC you will notice also the video changes from HD (widescreen) to SD (normal) as well.

Sharp Aquos LC-37D62U Audio Warning

Usually the settings can't be turned off and the audio settings are searching for whatever is being outputted from the program itself whether mono or stereo. It is nuisance I know.

Volumne on Akai LCT3285TA

Often a signal might experience a super-quick "drop" in signal strength, and the display is automatically adjusting the now weaker audio signal to "mono" (temporary, as for best quality). But the dropout is usually so brief you will then see the "stronger" signal restored [full strength], and now the audio is "stereo".

It's like a "bump" or "disturbance" that occasionally affects the cable/satellite/OTA (antennae) signal being fed into the TV, and your display's attempts to compensate for the weaker signal [going to mono, then back to stereo once back to full strength].
Connecting it to your cable directly (bypassing the box) or an antenna would give you a true over-the-air signal, which would be proper MTS and would not give you any more pop ups.

Green box keeps popping up in upper right corner

You should be watching your dvd's on an input and not on tv analog 3. Every time the tv "senses" a signal change in the audio that screen will pop up. Connect the DVD player to the tv by using either the red, white and yellow (composite) connections or using the green, blue, red, white and red (component). Once you are on an actual input that box will stop popping up.

Stereo/mono on iLo 42 screen tv

I have encountered the same problem. I have looked through the menu at least a hundred times to find an answer, but the only thing that I have been able to come up with is to push the MTS button on the remote.
