No sound on certain channels

No sound on certain channels

My TV has been workinng fine and I had sound on all channels.  As of 12/14/11, I now only get sound on some channels and on others I have sound with no problem.  Why is that and how do I fix the problem since obviously the TV works and the cable connection works since I get video on all channels and sound on some but not all.

If you have a DTA  try hitting the "LANG" button.  Otherwise, check the SAP (second audio program).

I have a friend having this same issue - no sound on MTV, ABC Family and TLC.  She said it's only on the hookup in her bedroom.  All other TV's in the house have sound and no issues with these channels.  She has called Comcast and they've been no help.  Any suggestions?

Re: No sound on certain channels

Did your friend try the suggestion in post #2 by pressing the "LANG" button?

Yes, she did.  Did not help.

Have her try the tv remote and cycling through the SAP/Language options on the tv itself.

Have her try the SAP button on the TV's remote control.

Thanks, I have passed on your info for her to try.

Thanks!  I have passed on the info to my friend.  If her remotes are anything like ours, we do not have a LANG button or an SAP button on either our Comcast remote or TV remote, so would they be in the menu listing somewhere?  just curious!  We are not having any issues with sound, but I looked at our remotes for the LANG and SAP buttons and they aren't there.

On my tv remote it is labeled MTS. I have a Samsung. The tv menu would be the other option.

Frequent Visitor

Re: No sound on certain channels

Okay, thank you!  Our TV remote has the MTS button - maybe hers does as well.

Re: No sound on certain channels

Angie said she tried all your suggestions and she still does not have sound on certain channels.  If she hooks up another tv to the same cable she gets the same senario - no sound.  But all the tv's sound works in other rooms when they are hooked up, just not her bedroom. 

 

Any other ideas?  suggestions?

Re: No sound on certain channels

Have her take the box and remote to the local Comcast office for a swap.  Seems like you two have tried just about everything.

Re: No sound on certain channels

Thanks!  Just started having sound problems on a few of the local broadcast channels and the LANG button fixed it.  How come the Comcast customer service person I spoke to for 15 minutes couldn't suggest this?  Why do customers have to search online for solutions to Comcast's service problems??
