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.
If you open the menu,there should be an option for sound.If you have a universal remote,you will probably have to do it with the buttons on the TV.SAP and stereo are about the same.It most likely cycles through mono,stereo,SAP with the volume button.Good luck!
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.
on the remote there may be a button marked MTS. if so press this button (toward tv) repeatedly till stereo mode displays. otherwise go into tv menu under audio section and scroll to parameter that allows you to adjust mono,stereo, or sap mode. mch
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.
