Hi,

SAP (Second Audio Program) may be turned on. This used to be a widespread RCA problem maybe caused by incorrect conversion of analog signals for viewing as phony HD images. Costly class action lawsuits addressed the problem in USA. Most of the specific equipment causing the problem used by broadcast/production/satellite industries was either adjusted correctly or replaced. If the problem re-occurs, it may caused by specific TV channels or programs that you watch. Codes inserted in the signal are incorrect and confusing the RCA TV Guide and audio processing circuits. The error causes SAP to be incorrectly selected as default for all channels.

Remedies:

Change audio settings in customer adjust menu to Stereo from SAP. Sometimes the On screen TV Guide set-up must be cleared of location, etc., and set-up again.

Sometimes it is difficult to set correctly. Unplug TV for 12-24 hours and TV may reset to default stereo setting instead of SAP.

This was an active Class Action legal issue 10-15 years ago in the USA.

Hi,
It sounds either volume down button is bad that turns volume down on its own or system control chip got defective and decreasing volume level.
Press volume down button on tv front and check is it working properly.

Hard to get started when powering up to watch.


definitely, something wrong with it. TV shouldn't take more then a few seconds to start, I suggest, while it still under warranty, give Sharp a call to get it fixed.

Getting sound but no picture when watching dvd and in can't get sound from tv when watching tv


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Make sure the Red and White wire is connected into your TV “AUDIO IN” and the Red and White wire is connected into the L & R. Also check that the DVD player Audio setting Analog Out is set to “2 Channel” and the TV is turned to the correct Video line (AV Input/Video Input 1,2,3.etc). Once your TV is turned to the correct video line, you should see the “COBY” logo and it will work normally. If still the issue persists, then you’ll need to reset the DVD Player for which you’ll need to follow these steps---


Using the DVD player remote control: Open the Tray and press the “PROG” button and then press the “ZOOM” button.

Once the above procedure is performed the tray will be closed which means the DVD player has been reset back to the factory default settings.


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Samsung TV - have sound/auto volume set to on. When TV is turned off and then on, tv volume is extremely low. Go back to sound menu, it shows "on" but if you go back and act like you are turning in on, the...


Hello Blindrid,
What I would suggest you do is Press your MENU button on the tv remote, Then down to SOUND and then Turn the AUTO VOLUME to OFF. Then come out of the menu screen.
Just to check that it has all work correctly. turn you volume upto a certain number for example 25
Then turn your TV off the turn it back on. Wait until it is displaying a picture then press the volume button Once either up or down and you should see that it will go to 24 or 26 depending on what button you pressed for the volume. This will keep your volume set to whatever you had it on before you turned the tv off.

Hope this Helps Please leave a thumbs up.

Cheers

Big Blur when i turn the tv on


Hi!

First of all please check the following things:

Press the TV button. Make sure the TV is plugged in. Check the wall receptacle (or extension cord) to make sure it is “live” by plugging in something else. Something might be wrong with your remote control. Press the POWER button on the front of the TV. If the TV turns on, check the remote control solutions. The front panel controls may be locked (disabled). Use the remote control to unlock the front panel controls by selecting the Front Panel Block in the Parental Control menu and press OK to uncheck the box. The TV might be performing a periodic diagnostic check. Wait for a few minutes for the TV to turn on.

If still the problem persists then check the following:

Maybe the cable/air function is set to the wrong position. The channel might be blank — change channels. If you’re watching your VCR and it’s connected with coaxial cable to the CABLE/ANTENNA jack, tune the TV to channel 3 or 4 (whichever channel is selected on the 3/4 switch on the back of your VCR). Also check to make sure the TV/VCR button on the VCR is in the correct mode (press the TV/VCR button on your VCR). Check antenna connections. Make sure all of the cables are firmly connected to the jacks. Try adjusting sharpness function to improve weak signals. Closed-captioning might be on. Check Closed Caption in the Setup menu.

Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.
