SAP stands for secondary audio program. It can be used to broadcast another audio soundtrack, like spanish etc. Look on the remote for an audio button and try that. You can look in the menu if that doesn't work. If you find it, make sure it is off. If you can't find it post this problem again with the brand name and model number of your tv. I will try to find the solution.

Hi I pressed the wrong button turning the TV on, now I have no sound and can't get it back. please help.


Hi,

SAP (Second Audio Program) may be turned on. This used to be a widespread RCA problem maybe caused by incorrect conversion of analog signals for viewing as phony HD images. Costly class action lawsuits addressed the problem in USA. Most of the specific equipment causing the problem used by broadcast/production/satellite industries was either adjusted correctly or replaced. If the problem re-occurs, it may caused by specific TV channels or programs that you watch. Codes inserted in the signal are incorrect and confusing the RCA TV Guide and audio processing circuits. The error causes SAP to be incorrectly selected as default for all channels.

Remedies:

Change audio settings in customer adjust menu to Stereo from SAP. Sometimes the On screen TV Guide set-up must be cleared of location, etc., and set-up again.

Sometimes it is difficult to set correctly. Unplug TV for 12-24 hours and TV may reset to default stereo setting instead of SAP.

This was an active Class Action legal issue 10-15 years ago in the USA.

No sound,but good pic.everything else works fine.(toshiba 57hx94)


hello,

• Check the antenna/cable connections (see Chapter 2).

• The station may have broadcast difficulties. Try another channel.

• The sound may be muted. Press VOLUME.

• If you hear no sound, try setting the MTS feature to STEREO mode (page 81).

• Make sure the SPEAKERS function in the AUDIO SETUP menu is set correctly (page 83).

• If you are not receiving a second audio program from a known SAP source, make sure the MTS feature is

set to SAP mode (page 81).

• If you hear audio that seems "incorrect" for the program you are watching (such as music or a foreign

language), the SAP mode may be on. Set the MTS feature to STEREO mode (page 81).

• When using an external audio amplifier, if you connect the amplifier to the VAR. AUDIO OUT jacks, the
volume of the TV and amplifier must be set above 0 or you will not hear any sound (page 20).

I can get a picture , but no sound on the TV . What am I doing wrong?


Many RCA TV sound problems are caused by SAP function being activated by TV station equipment that converts Analog TV signals to HD signals. Accidental pressing of the wrong buttons on your remote can also cause this problem.

The incorrect conversions causes the Audio settings to be changed from Stereo to SAP by the received signal.

Solution is to go to Audio set-up in customer menu and change settings from SAP to Stereo. If you find that settings are wrong, change them to "Stereo". Do channel scan if you are using the TV tuner/remote to select channels. Turn off the TV and unplug for 60 seconds. Check the settings again and reset if required.

This problem may re-occur when you select the VHF channel, satellite channel or cable box channel that is causing the problem. It is not a TV fault that can be repaired. The problem is caused by the incorrect incoming signal.

SAP is Second Audio Program, used for second language transmissions.

Second cause may be that the speakers have been turned off in the audio set-up menu.

Vizio tv cannot hear volume on all of the channels just some.


Try this:
Apparently the TVGOS (TV2_bing.gif Guide On Screen) signal on CBS stations (since the 6/12 digital changeover) can cause the sound to be missing on those channels. Use the SAP button on the remote to page through the SAP options. When you return to the normal setting the sound will be restored. This problem should not occur again unless the SAP button is pressed.

No sound on some channels


your tv has audio setting called SAP that is for channels that are broadcasting on a second language like spanish, on the channels that do not have this SAP capabilitie you will not hear anything unless you put your tv on stereo mode, so you need to go out of the Sap mode by a button on the remote, check for mts, button , or audio thank you

Channel volume


Make sure that the sound setting in the menu are NOT set on SAP. The sound should be set on stereo. Use the mitsubishi remote to pull up the menu then go to the audio portion and look for that setting. If you need more help or it is set on stereo let me know and we can go further.

No volume


Normally when you have only one channel with audio the cause is usually SAP is turned on, either on the television or the cable or Sat elite box.
If you were pushing buttons on the remote, I would suggest that the SAP button is on the remote.
On a Samsung remote, the MTS button identifies this function. It may be labeled stereo.
Make sure the remote is in the TV mode to change or check on the TV.
It may also be a button on the remote for the Cable or Sat elite box. If not then you may have to search in the menu's of the Television or the boxes.
If the set is only two weeks old (the actual set, not how long you have owned it) then it probably has an ATSC turner labeled Air that will receive local HD by using rabbit ears. If the set is over 3 years old, it will not have this feature.
It's difficult to give a full de script explanation of a solution without knowing the model or configuration of the input signal.
If this does not help, respond to this post and I will reply.
