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.

Ilo tv in spanish need english

To change the menu language of the TV using the remote:

Display the menu screen.
• Press [MENU].
6 menu items will be displayed. The third item will be ENG/ESP/FRA

Select "ENG/ESP/FRA".
• Using [CH up / CH down] buttons, select "[ENG]/ESP/FRA".

Every time you press [VOL up / VOL down] buttons, the language
will be advance to the next. Select the language. When ENG is selected, exit by pressing [MENU]

If you are trying to change the AUDIO of the TV, simply press the [AUDIO] button on the remote. This will advance the selection between MAIN, SAP and MONO. MAIN is the native language of the program (often in stereo), SAP is "secondary audio program" - which is usually a second language, but may be an audio source not related to the picture at all. MONO is monophonic, or a single sound source that is the result of combining the LEFT and RIGHT stereo channels to one output or speaker. This selection is often a downgraded version of the stereo output provided by the MAIN audio selection - but may be useful under certain conditions.

You can review your manual here. Pg. 31 has details for the menu display language selection and pg. 16 has details for audio language selection.

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.

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..

Your SAP audio function is on. Look on your remote or in the TV menu for SAP or MTS. There are 3 settings, Mono, Stereo, and SAP... set it to Stereo. I hope this was helpful, best wishes.

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.

No audio on select channels

Go into the TV's menu and see what type of audio mode its set on. If it says sap turn on to stereo or mono. If it says stereo, set to mono. Also try to unplug set for 12 to 24 hours.
