TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 1 year ago

TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 1 year ago

No
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 1 year ago

How did you find the sound on a different frequency anyway ?

You punched in the .2 number manually ?

TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 1 year ago

Rescan your channels , something happened with the tuner and may be this will clear by refreshing the channels list

No used remote. Was on 21-2 last night when we retire? Wife used channel down button to go to 13-1. Got 13-1 video, but 13-2 audio.
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 1 year ago

so you just pressed the channel up/down buttons and it will go from picture alone to sound alone ??

This is getting even better

Now is time to rescan your channel

Ask Your Own TV Question
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 1 year ago

If that doesn`t do it then something went wrong with your tuner , there are no functions that can move the main audio to another frequency .

I was asking if you had the SAP (second audio program) as those use a side frequency for other languages , yours has it in the MTS

If your tuner doesn`t come back to normal then I have a workaround for this , let me know

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
No,, when going from 21-2 to 13-1 the tv gives us 13 -1 video and 13-2 audio. Same with 15,11,33 act. Did the rescan
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 1 year ago

O.k then that's it , as I said I know of no functions that will move your main audio to a separate frequency , just the alternate audio when available.

So here is my fix on this beside replacing your TV's main board ;

Click the link below and you will see a tuner/converter box with HDMI out that sells for $35 and it even records ;

https://www.amazon.com/3500STBII-Multi-Function-Converter-Recording-Playback/dp/B00GOILYB6

Comes with its own remote as well and will connect between the TV's HDMI in and the antenna

If you`d rather look into replacing your main board then let me have the full model and version number of your tv and I will find it for you

Let me know if you have other questions and if not for now then please do not forget to rate by clicking on the star icons at the top, then click on Submit so i get paid for my time helping you .
Also note that it will not close this post , you can come back here at any time if you need further info or help .
Thank you
