Akai lct2785ta Sound Problem

Every time I change the channel, the sound defaults to Mono and I have to press the MTS button to change it to Stereo. I can't believe a company would produce a product that you have to press a button to get stereo every time you change channels. There has to be a way to have the default stereo.

Re: 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.

TV no sound but pictures ok, changed channels ok

The mts/sap function on your television might be enabled. Locate the audio settings on your television and make sure you are set for either stereo or mono. You may have an audio or mts button on your remote. If not this should be in the menu.

The cable company may have made a recent change and the tv may need to be channel buffered or you may need to complete another channel scan.

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.

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.

We don't get sound on some of our channels. we have time warner cable, but no box. We see the picture, but no sound - but only on certain channels.

You have accidentally turned on your secondary audio (SAP). Look on your original TV remote for a button that says MTS or Audio and when you press this button it will say something like SAP, MONO or STEREO. You want to set it to STEREO for best sound and to get back the audio on the channels that you are missing.

If you are having trouble finding the way to shut off the secondary audio please repost with you TV Brand and Model # and we will try to help you.

Good Luck and please rate this solution....
