Question about RCA B27TF680 27 in. TV/VCR/DVD Combo

No sound on two local channels?

I just got this tv and two local channels don't have sound. They both show SAP SAP and above that TV14. They seem to be the only two that show SAP SAP. I programed the channels and made sure that it is on Cable STD which is what I have it connected to. What do I need to do? I don't have the instruction manual. Thanks

Re: No sound on two local channels?

Do you have the original remote? it will look like the one here: If you do not have the original remote you will not be able to switch off the SAP setting, without it as there is a button that controls the sound. when this button is pressed you see where to turn off the SAP setting. Good Luck

The vcr writing on the tv screen says "SAP" and the sound won't play. How do I turn SAP off?

SAP means Secondary Audio Programme. To cancel this, you have to get into the Minu of your TV, and surf through to get the SAP display window. There you have to set the SAP of OFF. For more details go to the user manual of your TV. OK.

We bought a universal remote to increase our access to cable channels. Some of the channels display the symbols S.A.P. and have no volume. How do we disable the S.A.P so we can hear the volume.?

S.A.P. Means Secondary Audio Program.

SAP, Mono, Stereo, Etc. You should be able to switch this from your remote. Even universal remotes should have this button to adjust sounds. Otherwise you need to go into the TV menu (not the remote) and change it from there. The only way you can change it on those channels is to switch manually. Happens a lot on these older TVs. No worries. Very common.

On many sets, the audio channel can be switched by remote control or through a SAP switch located around the tuning panel or "on screen programming." Usually, there is a setting labeled SAP, AUDIO SELECT, B-AUDIO, MTS, or MENU. By changing the setting, you should be able to select SAP. Not all TV sets are alike, so you might want to check your instruction manual for all the details.

I am hooked into cable and not on antenna. I can get sound w/ the DVD player that is hooked up to the tv but no sound on the tv. The tv channels come in clear but no sound.

May be a simple problem with the SAP (second audio program ) being set to the wrong place, run thru the onscreen audio menu and see if this is the case

We have a 32" Toshiba Tv and the sound is off on two channels and Stereo Sap is displayed on these two channels. Any suggestions as to how I could clear this?

turn off the sap in the audio menu. sap is "secondary audio programming" i believe, and sometimes stations will broadcast in spanish on this sap or will broadcast weather or emergency information. these channels are probably broadcasting a mute sound over the air.

No sound on only two channels (6 & 55)

I'm stoopid. I pressed the Audio button on the remote control and discovered that the selection was set to SAP however no secondary audio was present resulting in no audio. It's no my TV so I am unfamiliar with the remote functions.
