Sharp Aquos TV

Whenever there is music or applause on the program a display appears saying Cable, Analog (the channel number) audio and mono. How do I stop this from appearing on the screen.

    The channel display (with Audio: Mono or Stereo) will appear often and randomly on the screen, especially during commercials. It's a brand new TV... sorry to hear it can't be fixed, I'll get my money back :(

    Thanks for the info, very useful!

    Wow... when I called Sharp about my problem, they told me this was "normal", that it happened because of signals my cable company sent to my TV... What do you say to that?

I just hung up from calling Sharp's customer service: I have the same problem and there is nothing to do about this, the television merely reflects the signal your cable distributor (I suppose that, like me, you have cable) is sending to your TV. If the signal fluctuates, the TV will show it, no maintenance can make it stop, it is normal behaviour for the TV.

According to Sharp, a way to solve this is to get a better, more stable signal from your cable distributor or switch to satellite; getting HD cable would apparently greatly diminish the frequency of this display.

Karl,

How many times is the POWER LED blinking? (Don't worry about the OPC LED).

1x = Bad inverters/lamps
2x = Bad Power Supply
3x = Bad Main Board

Either way, there isn't anything you can do to fix this, you need to contact Sharp to have your TV serviced.

How to tune samsung tv


Mono is the first point I am stuck on. Mono is an audio reference but I am going to assume that you are only receiving the analog channels and not the digital. If you are coming off of an antenna then the antenna has to be HD to receive HD channels over the air. If you are off of a cable box then this has to be dealt with from your provider. You will also need an HD ready TV or if you do not you will need an HD converter box to make your tv work with the digital signal.

How to I disable the SAP function on RCA FLAT 19 INCH screen?


Hello
From its main Menu, surf towards its sound Menu.
By using UP/DOWN buttons of the remote handset, select SAP

SAP (Second Audio Program) (for analog channels only) Plays the

program's audio in a second language, if one is available. The TV displays

the word SAP in the channel banner when you tune to a program that is

broadcast with SAP information. SAP audio is broadcast in mono. SAP is also

used to broadcast a program's audio with descriptions of the video for the
visually impaired. Press the right arrow button to turn SAP on or off.
OK.

We hooked it up and have no sound


From the Console Settings screen in the System area of the Xbox Dashboard, you can configure the video output of your Xbox 360 console for a widescreen, high-definition TV, determine your audio options, and check your console's serial number and Xbox Dashboard version.
Go to correct section for ... Audio

Change your audio output settings for games from this screen. These audio settings do not affect DVD movie playback. For DVD audio settings, refer to an individual DVD movie's setup screen.

Settings consist of:

  • Analog Output Settings: choose Mono to merge the left and right audio signals so that you can hear all sound through a connection to a monaural TV or monitor; choose Dolby Pro Logic II to listen in normal stereo (no audio surround receiver required) or to listen to Dolby Pro Logic or Dolby Pro Logic II soundtracks from compatible games or other media.

    Dolby Pro Logic consists of four channels of audio: front left/center/right and a monaural surround channel that is mirrored in each of your rear left/right speakers. Dolby Pro Logic II uses digital signal processing to generate 5.0 audio (front left/center/right, rear left/right) from any stereo (left/right) programming, whether from movies, music, or games. Unlike movies and music, however, games are specially encoded with Dolby Pro Logic II decoding in mind.

    To listen in either Dolby Pro Logic or Dolby Pro Logic II surround sound, you must connect your cable's left/right (white/red) RCA connectors to a compatible surround receiver. For more information, see our connection page for the cable you're using:
  • Digital Output Settings: configure this setting only if you'll be using the Toslink optical digital-audio output from a compatible Xbox 360 AV cable (optical digital-audio cable sold separately):


    The default digital-audio setting is Dolby Digital 5.1. If this is your preference, you do not have to make a selection from this screen.

Under the channel it says SAP and no sound comes out on some channels,on other channels its says stero and works fine how can i fix the problem


I found this information in the manual, and perhaps it will help:

1 Switch the audio.

• Every time you press [AUDIO], the audio will

be switched as below.

MAIN : Outputs main-audio

SAP : Outputs second audio channel
MONO : Outputs mono-

Also the manual says this about SAP:

SAP

(Secondary Audio Program)

Second-audio channel delivered

separately from main-audio channel.

This audio channel is used as
an alternate in bilingual broadcasting.

Here is a link for the manual, in case you want to go over the settings. I'm thinking this is a setting problem in the menu, but it can be a physical problem with a cable line.
http://dukeelectronic.com/Manual/IWT3206.pdf
Of course it could also be a trickier problem, but check your settings, check the cable line with another TV if possible, and then contact ILO Support for help, in the event nothing fixes it.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

How do I get my rca truflat tv to get out of mono?


Hello
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.

My Sharp Flat Panel Television LC19SB25U has Picture but No Audio


Sharp has had a few problems with their audio boards, not finding any bulletins on this model, but a few complaining about low audio on amazon reviews section. If using an antenna you will experience some channels with low audio. If using cable you should get good sound on all channels..
the 9.1 and 9.2 are digital channels and sharp does display them for at least a few seconds when you switch to that channel. Check all your setting in the audio to Stereo never SAP. To options for you are get a cable box, first check in the back and see if there is another coax in, if there are two try both rescanning after connecting.

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!!

Sharp aquos a box with mono and stereo and channel 3


Commercials are broadcast in lower quality than the programs, and it is normal for the signal to change when going to commercials. If you are watching ATSC you will notice also the video changes from HD (widescreen) to SD (normal) as well.

SAP - I can't get my new TV out of Mono and into stereo.


Are you using a cable box sush as a Comcast cable box? If so then the volume control within the cable box is most likely not high enough for the TV to detect a stereo pilot signal. The Comcast remote (if thats what you have) still is programmed to operate the volume within thier box, the volume display will be at the top of the picture and it will be in white. Turn it up until the word "stereo" appears. then leave it at that setting and use your TV's volume control only.
