    I have a problem that just started with the sound on my Sony KV-35S42. For some reason, the sound comming oout is real low even when you turn the control all the way up. I looked through the menu and under the audio area, there is a values set called "Variable: Audio Out".

    I am wondering two things.

    1. Can I bypass the sound somehow by hooking up a home theatre system to the sound jax ports to play sound out of my DVD or out of my verizon cable box.

    2. Do you think this would be worth a repair. The local shop says it's $90 just to pull the box.

Your statement is not clear. Sound was working in stereo or mono mode. Whatever it is you said i hit button on the remote means which button. Suppose you got the solutions in multiple order combinations means there is dry contact in the mother board. If it is not there check the menu options whether the sound system is set in your type of reception if it is BG or I or DK.

Can't change from MONO to AUTO mode

Can't make sound from mono to auto is your problem I thinks and posts this solution.
Hit the "Menu" button and surf through, come to "Sound Adjust" window.
The settings allow you to change and adjust sound in your TV. There are Bass, Treble and Balance control to adjust to your individual taste.
To adjust them
1. Press Menu button.
2. Press UP or DOWN button to select the desired item.
3. Press => or 4. Press EXIT button when finished.
When adjusting the parameter of "Balance" control, always set it to mid position to get stereo sound from both speakers. If it is set to any extreme end, there will be no output from the speaker of that side, and will hear as mono.
If you press "0" [Zero] button, you can reset the sound settings to it Factory settings.
To select 'Streo mode;
1. Press "Menu" button.
2. Press UP or DOWN button to select MTS [Multi-channel Telivision Sound].
3. Press => or [The ON AIR arrowtells you if a broadcast is in stereo AND/OR contains the SAP.
Press "Exit" button when finished.

Keep the TV in stereo mode to get the best sound quality. The sound will work in stereo

mode even if a certain broadcast is in mono sound only.

Choose the mono setting to reduce excessive noise on a certain channel or broadcast.
Selecting SAP will allow you to hear an alternative soundtrack, if one is available.

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.

My wife was hitting buttons on our satellite remote and the audio no longer works. She thinks the tv is the problem. I have tried all of the Satellite volume menus and am unable to get the sound back on.

TV: check for SAP or MTS features, set them to STEREO. Also, verify that the TV Speakers are set to ON.

Cable Box: If the box has volume controls, make the volume is turned up. Also, check for the SAP or MTS feature. Again, set this to STEREO.

I hope this was helpful, best wishes.

No sound on some channels, other channels fine

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.

No sound on channels that have SAP instead of Stereo

You can access the menus using the buttons on the set. Go to audio menu, you'll find a setting that says listen to and have choices of mono stereo or sap, choose stereo.

No sound on four channels while all other channels sound is fine.

You most likely have the SAP1.gif mode activated. Look for a button on your remote or an item in the on-screen menus of your television1.gif 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.
