Question about RCA 32F531T 32" TV

1 Answer

Black Screen There is sound, and I am able to change the channels because I can hear it when I press the button it goes silent, but I can not see any picture. I have hooked up the TV to my channel source but all I hear is the white noise. I can not even hear the people talking on the TV if there were any. I need to know what to do to be able to get a picture on the TV. Thanks.

Several channels have lost sound entirely on our Mitsubishi CS-32509 television. On other channels things are in Spanish at times while in English at other times. Then there are other channels that have no...

You've managed to turn on "SAP" (second audio mode) which will cause the trouble. It doesn't affect all channels, as you're finding out, and can be frustrating. Mitsubishi remotes have a singe button for SAP, if I remember correctly, and you can press it and change modes without knowing it. (The button may be marked AUDIO or SAP.) Just press the button until the on-screen display tells you SAP is off. This will bring the sound back to normal.

This ranks up there with the mysterious black box that appears on some channels. This is because of closed-captioning being set to TEXT, and it happens the same way: pressing a button on the remote.

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.

It sounds like the closed captioning background.

Press Menu on the remote
Press Up or Down, Ch + or C- to get to Closed Caption
Press right side button or Vol+ and Mode will be highlighted
Press right button or Vol+ until it says Off on the right hand side of the Menu
Press exit and that should do it.

Hope this helps.

Frozen on a menu screen

Just fixed ours with the same problem. You need to hit the volume buttons on the remote during the time the screen goes black but BEFORE it gives you the "Connect cables" message.It should trick the TV into giving you a blank channel.

Sanyo TVs are made notoriously cheap, and have little glitches like this. Best of luck, space cowboy.

Shut off the closed captioning and your problem will be gone.

Black screen

It really sounds like the child lock has been activated. This uaually blocks the keys on the TV, but the remote should work. If your remote doesn't work either, make sure the batteries work. If your remote for the TV can operate other apliances such as a VCR or DVD player, make sure it is in TV mode. If there are any buttons marked TV, VCR, DVD you could try pressing the TV button to set it in TV mode. If the To has a text-tv function there might be more than one button marked TV; one for setting TV mode as posed to DVD operating mode, and one for getting TV picture back when viewing text pages. -Chris
