Re: mts:mono mode and just keeps scrolling through...
Take that tv to a tech you bought that set deffected .or take it back to where you buy it from.but my advice is that you take it back to where you buy it from.as you will pay double.repairs and what you have already paid for the set.good luck

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.
The mts/sap function on your television might be enabled. Locate the audio settings on your television and make sure you are set for either stereo or mono. You may have an audio or mts button on your remote. If not this should be in the menu.
The cable company may have made a recent change and the tv may need to be channel buffered or you may need to complete another channel scan.
Your SAP/MTS function is most likely turned on. This feature has 3 modes: Stereo, Mono and SAP. Stereo and Mono are easy to understand, it's the SAP that can get you. SAP stands for Second Audio Production. It is used to provide weather, information or an additional language translation of a program. Some broadcasters simply transmit the mono audio over the SAP audio channel when the are not using it for other purposes. Other broadcasters simply do not use it, which does not give you any audio. Look on your remote for a SAP or MTS button. If you do not see one, look in your TV user menu for this feature. If you are using a cable box, look in the audio menu of the cable box. You are looking for something set to SAP... just change it to STEREO. I hope this was helpful.
if you are using a digital TV is is possible that the frequency is slightly out or you have poor reception. do a new channel serch first (automatic if you can and see what happens sap may reset also if you do this function.

RESTORE SETTING If you reset the TV to the factory settings, all your present settings on picture & sound will be erased and replaced by the factory’s default settings. However, picture setting in PC mode and parental setting will not be erased.
You most likely have the SAP mode activated. Look for a button on your remote or an item in the on-screen menus of your television called MTS or SAP. You want to set this to "Main" "Normal" or "Stereo" (or even "Mono") mode to hear the regular television sound.
If it is in SAP (Secondary Audio Program) mode, as I believe yours is, you may hear no sound or a different audio program. Often this is a translation to another language, such as Spanish, and other times (notably with PBS stations) it is an unrelated audio (often music) feed. On some stations there may be no sound at all with the audio mode set to SAP.
If you have it hooked up to a digital box, it shouldn't matter if the TV is on cable or antenna mode. The only thing that matters is that the TV is on channel 3. Channels will be changed on digital box. Some newer TV's use input 1 or 2 or AUX for it to work. If I were you i would hook everything up and start playing with the channels going up and down until you get a picture.
