I THINK THERE IS HIGH MOISTURE LEVEL IN YOUR HOUSE SO TRY TO AFFORD LCD OR PLASMA TELEVISION.

BESIDE THAT YOU HAVE TO DO SERVICING OF YOUR TELEVISION BEFORE AND AFTER RAINY SEASON.

THIS HAPPEN DUE TO MOISTURE.

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.

Sony Trinitron XBR TV, picture-in-picture got


A solution I found for our KV-32XBR200 was to press Setup on top of the set, then select the "Demo" item with TV/Video. The text overlay apparently banished PIP. Verified this twice, as I'm at this page because our remote can only turn PIP on :-).

The tv will not let me access all channels.


Turn off the text box with the TV/CAP/TEXT button. Go into the menu and change from TV to CABLE. Run the AUTO CH MEMORY.

Big black box in the middle of the screen


The black box is there because your closed captioning is on and set to text mode. Some channels send the signal even when there is no actual text to display. You can get rid of it by either turning off closed captioning or changing it to CC1 or CC2 mode instead of text. If you can't find those settings, then restore factory settings as directed in your user manual.

I have picture and sound when I watch a dvd/video but not through cable.


Try turning off the dvd/vcr and put your tv on the output channel of your DirectTv receiver. If this doesn't work it may not be hooked up correctly.

How to get rid of a black screen on my tv. sound is ok


If you mean that you get a black box, with a little of the picture visible around the edges, then your closed captions are on and set to TEXT. This puts a black box on the screen about 10 seconds after changing the channel. Go into the menu and turn off the closed captions and the picture will be back to normal.
