Vizio 22 inch HDTV--Loss of volume on non-HD channels only
I have a new 22 inch Visio HDTV connected directly to regular analog cable, no converter box. It was fine for about a month but all of a sudden, I get drastically reduced/non-existent sound ONLY on the channels that are not HD. At the same time, the channel descriptions for the non-HD channels got all wacky.
All channels that come up as HD are fine. HDMI DVD player is fine. Watching through DirecTV converter is fine,k even though channel 3 that it broadcasts on is virtually silent until I turn the sat box on.
Suggestions? Did I hit some setting that is squelching non-HD programming?

Hello, with the set on, press the menu button, move the cursor down till the "Tuner" section is hi-lighted, click on it. Then the first selection is "Tuner Mode" click on it, the choose "Antenna" click on it. Then move to the "Auto Channel Scan" and click on it, and let it set all your channels. when done, just exit menu and change channels as desired. you can go to page 39 in your manual for these instructions: Tuner Mode Select Cable or Antenna depending upon which equipment you have attached to the DTV / TV Input. Auto Channel Search Automatically search for TV channels that are available in your area. Be sure to first select the correct tuner mode above. The TV will search for analog and digital channels. When the search is done, press EXIT to begin watching your programs. thanks, Terry
could possibly be a Line noise issue from your cable provider, if it's an analog signal. I would try another room in the house to see if your problem goes away. If not, it may be something your cable company may have to look into. This may also be associated with intermittent connectivity if you have cable internet as well.
Usually this happens to my set when I am in HD cable channel mode after being on a non-digital ANALOG channel.
I basically reset the TV by changing to a DIGITAL cable channel -- stay on that channel for ten-twenty seconds -- then I switch back DIRECTLY to a HD channel (key in channel number directly on remote).
TV works fine -- seems to be a glitch when the TV changes modes from Analog to HD
RCA have choices for different methods of CC in user CC menu. Labelled T1, T2, etc. . Different selections are for different types of close caption. Tune to a signal (on your other TV) that has closed caption working.
Tune your RCA to the same signal. Change the T1,T2, etc settings until the closed caption for your signal appears.
If this doesn't work, try connecting analog video or VHF channel 3 (or other specified channel) to the TV. check CC. When TV stations, sat channels, sat receivers, cable boxes etc, convert analog video signals to HD, problems can result. Some equipment causes RCA TVs to do unexpected things with sound and closed caption.
If you use RF or video output, old analog video may look better on CH3 or video than on HD input and the CC will work more consistently. Watch HD signals on HD input, Analog signals on Video in or through the TV tuner . Many HD channels and programs are converted analog video and look poor on TV HD inputs.
