Philips TVs have an audio technology called automatic volume leveler (AVL). This was designed to eliminate the volume increase with commercials.
This setting is available in the audio page of the TV settings menu. turning the AVL option on should help with this problem.

Check the firmware and it should be LC81ULP-1.13 if it is not contact Philips for the USB to upgrade it. The the firmware is current the set should be under warrantyand they will have a tech comeout toyou. Don't do any repairs yourself while the set is under warranty that will void your warranty.

Why do Some channel have no volume and some do?


This is not necessarily the fault of the TV but the audio feed signal going to the TV. Note that in most cases the commercials are louder than the actual programs you watch.

Commercials come on so loud we have to mute it what to do


Noting I can think of other than not wathcing a channel without commercials.

Commercials' volume is purposefully pumped up, that's a well known fact,

The TV doesn't make a difference between what's commercial and what not though - it just plays whatever stream level is being supplied.

Well, the amplification may not be and probably isn't linear, but regardless, the point is there's nothing you can do on the TV's end.

Another TV may be a bit less obtrusive, but commercials will always be louder and if whatever you watch is a bit more quiet than usual and you put the volume up to hear it then yes, ads will sure blow you when they come.

My volume gets loud for music but soft for dialogue depending on the channel and part of the show/movie


Most of this is how the original material was mixed during production. Commercials are generally broadcast louder than the programming too. Try changing the sound field in the TV menu. Under the "Sound" menu of most TVs there are preset fields that are kind of like EQs. If you have a DVR, try different ones listening to the same show you are having issues with. The adjustments in most TVs are very limited. An external audio source (receiver, HTIB, soundbar) would give you more adjustable.

Picture is schinking in on both sides


the picture is narrowed on the sides when you are not on a high def program.
commercials will often be standard def even on a high def channel.

check you cable or satelite box setting to "stretch" analog programming automatically.

Volume fluctuates up and down for no reason. I use charter digital cable system


This is common of advertisers to do this. Some higher end TVs can auto adjust the volume to keep it at a more even level but commercials are usually louder on purpose. The FCC has just passed a bill to limit this practice. You can read more about it here:

Why do the commercials broadcast louder than the actual TV station. I always have to have the remote in my hand to control the volumn. Not right!


This is done intentionally by that broadcaster who charges more for for the ad to the advertiser to boost the audio level. This is Dirty Pool. There are cockroaches of many kinds out there. John

Sanyo 32 in flatpanel, Is there a setting to maintain the volume between channels and commercials?


No thats a pain huh? It is not actually louder ..oh I know it seems louder but technically it isn't, You see what they actually do, is they compress the audio, into a special mid sound range, that to most people sounds LOUDER, and so you "Pay Attention" Thats why the automatic limiter, that IS built in won't work, diabolical huh?

Commercials come on and volume is louder than tv shows


Volume and video levels for live broadcast, as well as satellite feeds are preset at a master control panel prior to broadcasting. TV commercials are pre-recored via satellite feeds, on seperate equipment, where audio and video levels are set manually by a technician. These manually set levels are very difficult to match, since the levels on the master control panel change. When the master control technician switches control to mark, a robot, mark loads the commercial and it is broadcasted, hence the different audio levels.

Sharp LCD tv "Audio window" keeps popping up on the corner


Replacing the cable box may fix the problem. But, you're the 4th person to have this same problem with this SHARP TV MONO only audio.
Try system reset button on the back of the TV or the box.

Spectroniq PLTV-20NW32 volume only works on some channels


Hi lisadean767,
It is possible that without realizing, your TV is programmed to receive SAP or Second Audio Program audio. When this happens, your TV responds like this: when SAP is not being broadcast, you'll receive regular program audio. However, when the SAP audio is sent along with the regular, (English) program audio, your TV will automatically switch to the SAP channel. You'll know your TV is programmed to receive SAP because you'll hear the commercials in English and any other program in English if the SAP is not being sent. 

Check and see if your tv is setup for SAP. Let me know if this helps and if I can be of further assistance, Please rate this solution.
