SAP is short for "second audio program" and is a way to send a second audio track along with the main one. In many areas stations use SAP to provide Spanish or other language sound for movies and other programs. If you have SAP turned on you don't know it until you tune to a channel where it's being used, and then you hear the other sound. Just turn SAP off using the remote control or TV menu.

Why the sound only on certain channels and some channels start speaking Spanish?


You most likely have the SAP (Second Audio Program) feature enabled. Many shows do not have this sound track and that is when you hear nothing. When the SAP is on, it is usually in Spanish for English-speaking programs. Check your TV remote for SAP and see if you can disable it.

Ct-844 no sound some channels


Check in audio menu for set (and for a box if using one) for SAP which will blank the sound on some channels and set it for stereo.

Also some sat or cable boxes have in menu option to mute or kill sound on selected channels.

SAP is for programs where sometimes Spanish or another language is being broadcast like Monday Night Football or KPBS which is public broadcasting in USA.

Several channels have lost sound entirely on our Mitsubishi CS-32509 television. On other channels things are in Spanish at times while in English at other times. Then there are other channels that have no...


You've managed to turn on "SAP" (second audio mode) which will cause the trouble. It doesn't affect all channels, as you're finding out, and can be frustrating. Mitsubishi remotes have a singe button for SAP, if I remember correctly, and you can press it and change modes without knowing it. (The button may be marked AUDIO or SAP.) Just press the button until the on-screen display tells you SAP is off. This will bring the sound back to normal.

This ranks up there with the mysterious black box that appears on some channels. This is because of closed-captioning being set to TEXT, and it happens the same way: pressing a button on the remote.

Model #VV2000 S # BOAA20050 CHANNEL SPEAKING SPANISH... NEED TO CHANGE TO ENGLISH QUASAR TV


Use your remote control to check the TV SAP settings. This is "second audio program" and is often used to carry the TV sound in another language. If SAP is turned on you won't notice it unless you tune to a channel where the SAP signal is present. Most remotes have a single button to control the audio settings, so it's easy to turn the feature on without knowing it by bumping the button. Turn off SAP and you should be back to English.

This set was on a DVR cable box, but I moved it to another room, without a cable box. The problem is that I get no sound on two channels--the local ABC channel and TBS from Atlanta. I noticed that on the...


The SPA looks as if the box is just telling you that spanish audio is available. That would usually occur even if it isn't set to spanish, it is just showing it's available. Maybe try changing the audio channel? Ie. from TV to VCR back to TV etc. and make sure you don't set to SAP.


Lastly is ther an Atlanta Braves game on? Is it being simulcast on TBS and your local ABC channel? That may be the problem, it may be a problem with their telecast of the game. If this is the case, then call the cable company as it is a problem elsewhere.

Thanks!

Tv audio feed


You most likely have the SAP mode activated. Look for a button on your remote or an item in the on-screen menus of your television called MTS or SAP. You want to set this to "Normal" or "Stereo" (or even "MONO") mode to hear the regular television sound.

If it is in SAP (Secondary Audio Program) mode, as I believe yours is, you will hear other audio. Often this is a translation to another language, such as Spanish, and other times (notably with PBS stations) it is an unrelated audio (often music) feed.

SAP change with no remote


The set is definately in the SAP mode, which will have some channels in spanish and some channels with no sound at all. You might be able to get an inexpenxive universal remote and go through the menu to return the audio setting to stereo, but if that does not work then you can order an original Sony remote by model number from Union Electronics at 800-648-6657.

Some channels have no sound some are in spanish


With your remote, go into the menu, find the audio setup and click off the SAP. Thats the Second Audio Program. Some Broadcasters send a second lanquage along with the regular audio. Someone must have been looking around or playing with the remote and turned on the SAP.. Good Luck PS please do not forget to rate this thread
