Question about Toshiba 27AF42 27" TV

1 Answer

Stero sound comes in and out

While watching a program the sound will become rich and come from the Stero Speakers then it goes back to a Mono sound and remains there most of the time. Sometimes the background sound is higher in volume then the people speaking. Most of the time however the Stero sound just does not work. We have been on cable and Antenna and neither way works. Nor does it work when playing a DVD. Any suggestions would be helpful. I've been an Aviation Electronic Technician while in the Navy and can do some trouble shooting and don't have a problem going inside if need be. Thanking you in advance. Regards, Ken Fette

What if you tap the side of the set when is doing it only to see if it reacts,if it does the you know you have a loose conection,sometimes you have a separate board for the stereo amp and the speakers conector plugs in ,sometimes in all in the main board and the speaker wires conect to the jack panel,The speaker conector is a good place to start.Be careful.

Cannot get stereo sound to stay on stero - keeps dropping back to mono then back to stereo

Before we strike at the some cases you may be getting a bad audio signal through cable or satellite signal. Atmospheric conditions this time of year are becoming inclement as we speak. We must be patient before we pull the cover off the TV. Wait and see.

Outside speakers

The two volume controls only work independently when you set the jukebox to 2 channel and mono. One controls the jukebox, the other controls the speakers. There are 3 switches to change on the amp before it will work.

Mono Vs Stereo

Here is what I found out. I had this same problem. I have cable TV and the signal coming into my house was not very strong. They 'boosted' the signal and this problem stopped. Along the way, they tested that the cable line had been passing through a splitter, so that to the house the signal was good, but by the time it passed all of the splitters, the signal was not strong enough. Now all is well and the problem does not happen anymore.
