Re: Sound loss

There is a software issue with the cox cable box. You television will only react to the input it receives from the box. Get cox to replace the box and not to tell you it is a problem with the television. Scrivitron

I can get a picture , but no sound on the TV . What am I doing wrong?

Many RCA TV sound problems are caused by SAP function being activated by TV station equipment that converts Analog TV signals to HD signals. Accidental pressing of the wrong buttons on your remote can also cause this problem.

The incorrect conversions causes the Audio settings to be changed from Stereo to SAP by the received signal.

Solution is to go to Audio set-up in customer menu and change settings from SAP to Stereo. If you find that settings are wrong, change them to "Stereo". Do channel scan if you are using the TV tuner/remote to select channels. Turn off the TV and unplug for 60 seconds. Check the settings again and reset if required.

This problem may re-occur when you select the VHF channel, satellite channel or cable box channel that is causing the problem. It is not a TV fault that can be repaired. The problem is caused by the incorrect incoming signal.

SAP is Second Audio Program, used for second language transmissions.

Second cause may be that the speakers have been turned off in the audio set-up menu.

No sound on some channels, some channels have wrong sound for pic

The SAP feature has been turned on. Look for a button that says SAP or go thru the audio menu and turn it off.

Why is there a long delay changing channels on my new Sanyo HDTV?

Are you connected to a cable box from your cable TV service Provider and use this device to select the channel you want to view? I have an HDTV which has the QAM tuning feature. Changing channels was instant until I accepted an offer from Cablevision for a 1 year rent free box and remote combo. The tuning box is a digital & analog Scientific Atlanta Explorer 4200 HD with a card slot for your subscription specs. This bypasses the tuner in your TV and the TV functions as a monitor.

If this is similar to what you have and you don't care about the channel/current program on screen display that appears for several seconds before the channel selection completes, perhaps the cable co. can adjust your box to supress this display if it will speed up the channel selection.

There is another annoying problem with this box. If you have a fraction of a second ac power interruption which might not even cause your computer to reboot, the cable box goes into a reinitialization that could take 5 minutes or longer. In my opinion, it is not worth the $6.50 per month charge we will receive when the year is up.

Sound stays on & picture goes to blank screen

I do not see any reference on this problem and I even checked with Sony. If you are on a cable box, I suspect that is the problem.

Loss of sound when I go to HD mode of tv.

Unplug the Moto box and plug back in after 1 min, as far as the codes, which remote cable/ tv? Cable remotes vary so much you will probably have to call your provider to have them walk you through programming.
