Akai LCT3785TA stereo vs. mono issue

Every time we change the channel, the TV defaults to Mono. Mono doesn't sound as good as Stereo, so we have to change to stereo after each channel change. Can we set the TV to Stereo as a default?

Well the default is to obtain the channels signal. most channels over the world their audio output signal is mono. Rare tvs have the ability to save indivisual channel to their memmoty. Read the tv prospectus!!!

No sound on 4 out of 17 stations. I've been into all the menus, the only difference I can see is that the 4 silent channels are in mono, all others are in stereo

the mono could be a red herring, the TV will toggle to stereo when it senses the Nearly Instantaneous Carrier And Modulation signal (NICAM) and as there is no sound it will not be getting that so its showing the default Mono. This could be a simple case of low signal, unless the affected stations are foreign and filter the sound trap at a different frequency

Sound very poor

there could be a few issues. It could be the speakers themselves. I believe this tv has an audio out. I would hook it up to a stereo and see if it that improves it. It could also be something internal like the amplifier. You have a couple options but I would just use a stereo for sound. If you still need more assistance let me know. Please take a moment to accept and rate my solution accordingly.

I've been having this audio issue with my LG 19LG30 for awhile now. Only recently discovering what exactly was going on. My audio would go in and out on some channels. There would be sound then muted for a...

to eliminate the problem just select the mono sound disable the stereo that your tv sound will be stable.this happens because not all tv stations are broadcasting on stereo signal thats why your tv keep on switching to mono and stereo base on what signal it the signal being feed by the cable provider sometimes they are not stable enough to give the stereo signal so better select only the mono sound...tnx hope i helped you..

Audio with digital channels, no audio with analog channels

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!!

Mine does this all the time. It appears to be a factory flaw. The only way around it is to set the channel you are watching to "MONO" and the crackling sound will disappear.

42" Sharp Aquous audio; Mono vs. Stereo

no. that is not true. the person you spoke to obviously didn't know what they were talking about. you mean to tell me that everyone that has a cable or satellite box with a stereo or hd tv is not going to receive stereo sound? really,think about it. you only need a cable box( for now ) if you have premium channels (hbo,showtime etc). you can connect the cable line right into the tv if you only have basic cable. look at the back of your cable box. if you have a red, white, & yellow audio/video output, then the box is stereo.connect these outputs to your tv. this connection however is not will need a hd box with a hdmi cable for hd .To put the tv on stereo mode, there should be a way via the menu and/or the audio button on the remote to get it off mono and put it on stereo. your manual should at least show you around the settings of your tv.

Mono Vs Stereo

Here is what I found out. I had this same problem. I have cable TV and the signal coming into my house was not very strong. They 'boosted' the signal and this problem stopped. Along the way, they tested that the cable line had been passing through a splitter, so that to the house the signal was good, but by the time it passed all of the splitters, the signal was not strong enough. Now all is well and the problem does not happen anymore.

Akai lct2785ta Sound Problem

Bear with me...I will start talking about CC, but I think my solution may work for you, too. I noticed that every time I turned on Closed Captioning, when I changed channel, it went off.

I went into the on-screen set-up, and turned on the CC there. Now, when I turn OFF CC, then change channels, it comes back on.

So, it may just have to do with your set up. Go there and set the default sound to stereo and see if that fixes it.

Good luck.
