Re: 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.

Flashing problem

Hi, it seems your TV requires technical service, it's seems a internal power supply issue but it should be checked. You can also check if the ventilation holes are not obstructed or if it has correct ventilation to avoid overheating.

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!!

I have a 37" combo TV/DVD unit. It's been doing this for about 6 months. Wrote to tech support from their website. Got nothing but an automatic response. When I called them, they automatically tell you the part you need is not available. It is a law that a part be available for 7 years. I have filed a complaint with the Bureau of Electronic and Appliance Repair (BEAR) against them. I need a new LCD control panel. Others have had success getting the parts they needed by going this route. Try it. Maybe they'll stop scamming us consumers. They get your TV back, fix it and resell it as reconditioned.

Panel buttons and remote controls are both erratic

Problem seems in panel board having bad switches. You probably need to replace the (control) panle board. Check out this Weblink having info for Akai TV parts.

Akai model lct2721ad. tv.

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.

Volumne on Akai LCT3285TA

Often a signal might experience a super-quick "drop" in signal strength, and the display is automatically adjusting the now weaker audio signal to "mono" (temporary, as for best quality). But the dropout is usually so brief you will then see the "stronger" signal restored [full strength], and now the audio is "stereo".

It's like a "bump" or "disturbance" that occasionally affects the cable/satellite/OTA (antennae) signal being fed into the TV, and your display's attempts to compensate for the weaker signal [going to mono, then back to stereo once back to full strength].
Connecting it to your cable directly (bypassing the box) or an antenna would give you a true over-the-air signal, which would be proper MTS and would not give you any more pop ups.
