Audio with digital channels, no audio with analog channels
I just got a new Sharp Aquos LC46D65U. It says "mono" for audio type for the analog channels and I don't get any sound. However, the digital channels get audio. I can't find any option that allows for the analog channel audio to work. Any suggestions?
Re: Audio with digital channels, no audio with analog...
I was getting a constant mono setting for all channels with no option to set it to stereo. I called Sharp, and they said that in order to receive stereo sound, you cannot use a standard coaxial cable. You need an S-Video or HDMI cable. This not only resolves the mono audio issue but also resolves the analog (vs. stereo) issue. Hope this helps!!

Sharp has had a few problems with their audio boards, not finding any bulletins on this model, but a few complaining about low audio on amazon reviews section. If using an antenna you will experience some channels with low audio. If using cable you should get good sound on all channels..
the 9.1 and 9.2 are digital channels and sharp does display them for at least a few seconds when you switch to that channel. Check all your setting in the audio to Stereo never SAP. To options for you are get a cable box, first check in the back and see if there is another coax in, if there are two try both rescanning after connecting.
I dont know if this will work for you, but its worth a try. I had the same problem.
1. I changed to a station that was having the problem (an analog station with MONO displayed on the screen). 2. I unplugged the TV for about 15-20 minutes. (I was thinking maybe something needed to refresh, so thats why i unplugged the tv.) 3. I plugged the tv back in and voila. The station showed up as MONO then immediately swtiched to STEREO.
After that, i was able to use the AUDIO feature on the remote to actually change from MONO to SAP, etc.
Ive had my Sharp for about 5 months now, and thats the first time its happend to me. Luckily, i solved the problem...this time.
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.
Not sure if I just got lucky or if the problem is solved..I hooked up my Sharp Aquos LC-32D64U the other night and I had the blue audio box pop up. Mine was only in Mono and would not switch to Stereo...Well, Local cable company is of of Hi-Def boxes but I thought what if my Digital box is bad/old or has some sort of problem. I went down to comcast cable company switched to a different digitial box..came home, hooked it up and so far no blue audio box, plus now it shows that it's in stereo..good luck
There is no factory option to stop the box from poping up every time
the signal changes, which is what is happening. It has something
to do with signal strength or the fact that your cable box is not set
up for HD. Call your cable company to get a tech out to check
your signal and set up your cable box because they do not come pre-set
with HD defaults.
