Audio Menu keeps popping up

The audio menu on our RCA keeps popping up out of nowhere, switching itself from menu to menu, and then eventually it turns itself right off. We tried changing the fuse, didn't work. Any ideas?

Re: Audio Menu keeps popping up

There are probably some failing components in the uPC control area, or with the keypad board on the TV sets front panel. It is also possible that there is a problem with the filtering of the distributed power through the circuit boards of the set, and there is some noise causing a false trigger of the function.

This type of fault can take some time for the tech to figure out, unless it is a published common fault with the particular model of set where they give a list of parts to change.

Menu keeps popping up

If you have the guide plus feature go into the setup for it and when it asks if you have a cable box, indicate no, when it asks if you have a Vcr also indicate no. Last if it asks for the zip code enter all 9, This should rule the Guide feature out of service and you will know if it is your problem or not---it created a lot of problems in sets that had it, especially RCA or GE sets.

Rca entertainment series pip. The audio is messed up. Some channels r silent, some are in spanish, some music play but not the voices. Called cable company they said the cable is fine. Help me please.

You have a simple problem:

It can be either in the set or a cable box if you use one:

The set in the audio menu or setup menu will have a setting called SAP- WHICH is secondary audio program--it will on certain channels do exactly what you describe--Spanish for Monday Night Football and music and such.

Find it in either the box if used or the set and switch it with the remote to Stereo (move it OFF of SAP)

I am surprised the cable company did not suggest this but ......

I hooked up the new digital box Comcast sent, but it has no audio. I disconnected the box and tried it by itself and it still has no audio. I went through the menu manually as the remote for the TV does...

I suspect you mean by disconnecting the box and running it by itself you mean you tried to run audio from your TV by itself? Somehow you need to go through the menu on your TV setup to see if the audio output isn't either turned off or muted. THere may also be a switch on the back of your TV near your output jacks which gives a option of Speaker on or off. If the speakers are on and your TV audio works I would suspect a issue with either your patchcords or the Cable Box. I am not familiar with the Comcast Digital Cable box (I have analog). But you may want to refer to the manual or to them to see if something in the menu may turn on audio for that as well.

After doing all that (whew)... and if nothing works you may have a issue with the TV amp. If nothing is hooked up to the tv (as if you were just watching "On Air" with an antenna and no stereo connected can you hear audio?

Let me know.

Kindly, DAVID

I can't access the Audio Out in the menu options. It's currently set to Variable. I hooked up the TV to my stereo with the Red/White RCA cables but get no sound? I am guessing it's due to that menu option.

That means that output varies with with volume control, but you have to set speaker off to activate the audio output, this is done in this same audio menu.

I have a audio issue with my RCA Stereo Monitor Color Trak Plus Television

Some of these sets have a glitch and you only have to unplug the set over night and the audio returns . If not you could have had the eeprom lock up or a problem in the audio output section. Also check to make sure the tv didn't switch your speakers off in the audio section of you menu. Good luck

Tvs are wired differently these days. Your old Zenith for example probably had a selector switch that allowed you to change from internal or external speakers, bandpassing the audio from the internal amplifier to the audio out connectors. Your Sharp on the other hand may be controlled by customer menu to perform the same function as the external switch. Go into the menu and sub-menu of the audio and see if it gives you any choices for selecting internal or external speakers... If it doesn't it probably will not bandpass the already amplified signal, which means if you want to listen to your Tv on those external speakers you'll first have to pass the audio sample through an amplifier.
Hope this helps.

Loss of Sound

Go into your audio menu, and make sure it is not in the SAP(Second Audio Program). Very common problem when you get good audio on the inputs but not on the RF or tuner input. Good Luck PS Please do not forget to rate this thread.

Audio output jacks

If I remember this tv correctly, check under the audio setting in the menu, most tv's including this on have variable output for the audio o/p. meaning the the o/p vol. is adjusted as the tv speaker vol. changes. some tv's will put out a fixed audio o/p to the rca jacks, but will only do this when the speakers are shut off in the menu (not muted, but off). I have run into this problem many times & have yet to find a better solution to getting a steady sound sound out of the o/p jacks.
