After you select all of that do a channel scan, even if your television comes from an input. I had to spend about 30 minutes on the phone with Sanyo tech support to solve this problem.

You must complete the channel and signal setup completely. You may think you don't need to do a channel scan if you are connected to a "box" for your signal source, you do and you will not have anymore issues.

Even though you have analog cable, you should be able to tune in HD signals of any station that it broadcasting HD over the air (with an antenna). Connect your coax from the wall to the coax connector on the back of the TV. Set your TV to tune in analog and digital in the Channel Setup. Run the setup. When finished, check out any channels labeled 8-1, 9-1, 10-2, etc. Those will be digital channels, and some may be HD.

If you do not have HD signal make sure to use video 1 and RCA (red, yellow, and white cables) It will give better quality than coax.

You need to upgrade to HDTV service with your cable/satellite company to get the full crisp sharpness for this kind of TV....You will be glad you did, and you will notice a difference.

How do I turn off the TV speaker

How do I turn off the internal TV sound so that I can run the audio through an external sound system? Page 12 of the owner's manual shows how to connect the TV to a stereo amplifier via the audio out jacks, but I can't find the setting to turn off the internal speakers.

answer 2
Both answers to this question don't solve my problem. If I turn down the volume or mute the TV, the volume from the TV speakers is still controlled by the volume buttons on the remote control, and I'd have to use a different remote to adjust my stereo.

On my previous TVs, when I turned sound to "off" with the TV setup, the volume control on the TV remote controlled the sound from the audio out RCA jacks on the TV to my external audio system.

By chance I upgraded my DISH system shortly after buying this TV. The new DISH remote can be programmed so that the volume control on the remote adjusts the volume to the "AUX" device, in this case my external audio system, and leaves the TV speakers as is.

So my problem was resolved by turning down the volume on the TV but only because I have the latest DISH satellite setup. If I had my old system, or only watched over the air broadcast TV I'd have to use a second remote to adjust the stereo volume.

Simply hit the "MUTE" button on the TV's remote control. Now all the sound will emit from the external sound system speakers.

We had this same issue when we first got ours. We were going through the prompts or cancelling out of them with the buttons on the side of the tv and it would "reset" each time we turned it back on. Once we finally got batteries in the remote and fully went through all the prompts with the remote, it hasn't "reset" and works perfectly.

It’s because the TV has a very fast refresh rate of 120HZ which is great for viewing sports and most programs, but does sometimes make movies look too life like. Go to your menu and turn the 120MZ off which will put it to 60HZ which is normal for most TVs. This will make your movies look normal again.

I bought this TV and thought the same thing. After looking on some forums, I found the answer is to go through your menu settings, and turn OFF the 120 mhz sensor. I did that, and it made things look as they should be.

A combination power-saving / image adjustment feature on the Sanyo DP55441 is the "Light Sensor" (in the menu). This feature changes the contrast and brightness variably with ambient room light. Yours may be set to "off". You might try other settings (low, middle, high) to see what that does. I'd start with "off", then adjust brightness. Also, make sure that Sports Mode (on the remote) is off.

It depends on the signal source you have connected and the method in which you have it connected. You may need to change the resolution output in the receiver if you're using one. My advise is to call 1-800-877-5032 for more detailed support.
