Question about Philips 37PF7320A 37 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

1 Answer

Audio switching rapidly between mono & stereo

I operate a small CATV plant. Some of the channels in my lineup are mono (news and such) while others are stereo (premiums, music channels, etc. One of my customers has the Phillips 37PFL5332D/37. He's experiencing severe audio distortion, but only on a few channels, and only on stereo channels. One the channels with the distortion, pressing the "info" button on the remote reveals that the audio mode is switching rapidly between mono & stereo. I ran him a new home run (signal strength is decent), and even brought in a nice Holland line extender to see if a hotter signal would solve the problem, but no luck. I'm beginning to think it's the TV itself. Has anyone else ever heard of this issue? Thanks.

My remote broke and some of my channels are on sap. and when i go to the menu there is no audio setting how do i put the channel setting back to stereo or mono


Hello

While receiving an MTS broadcast, press [Audio] repeatedly to to cycle through the available channel.
Main: Outputs main audio.
SAP: output secondary audio programme.
Mono: Outputs mono audio.
You must ahve remote control to change these, because only remote control have Audio button on it to control these. OK.

I've been having this audio issue with my LG 19LG30 for awhile now. Only recently discovering what exactly was going on. My audio would go in and out on some channels. There would be sound then muted for a...


to eliminate the problem just select the mono sound disable the stereo signal.so that your tv sound will be stable.this happens because not all tv stations are broadcasting on stereo signal thats why your tv keep on switching to mono and stereo base on what signal it receives.plus the signal being feed by the cable provider sometimes they are not stable enough to give the stereo signal so better select only the mono sound...tnx hope i helped you..

please rate my help!

No sound on some channels, other channels fine


Your SAP/MTS function is most likely turned on. This feature has 3 modes: Stereo, Mono and SAP. Stereo and Mono are easy to understand, it's the SAP that can get you. SAP stands for Second Audio Production. It is used to provide weather, information or an additional language translation of a program. Some broadcasters simply transmit the mono audio over the SAP audio channel when the are not using it for other purposes. Other broadcasters simply do not use it, which does not give you any audio. Look on your remote for a SAP or MTS button. If you do not see one, look in your TV user menu for this feature. If you are using a cable box, look in the audio menu of the cable box. You are looking for something set to SAP... just change it to STEREO. I hope this was helpful.

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!!
