No sound on my Sony Triniton - video has SAP on it
I must have hit something wrong on my remote because I can't get any sound...except when I get to the Public TV station, and I get a national weather service audio having nothing to do with what is actually on that channel. What button on my remote do I have to press to get my regular audio back and not the SAP?

Sap is for secondary audio, some TV broadcasts contain english as well as another language, ussually spanish. If it is mute it probably thinks there is something else there but there is nothing. TNT ussually has it depending on your TV provider and people will hit the sap button by mistake, It's funny to listen to them freak out thinking TNT has gone spanish.
Press MTS/SAP on the remote (under the number buttons) to go between the 3 options of STEREO or MONO or AUTO SAP. Not all channels will have SAP (secondary audio program). Selecting stereo should eliminate any secondary audio.
first check the speaker setting in the menu see if the speaker is selected ON. if the speaker is on then check the SAP function of the set. check this with the remote with the MTS button on the remote. keep hitting the button untill the word stereo appears.
If the sound is not heard during tuner (channel) but is when using an AV input (DVD) then it is likely the Second Audio Program (SAP) has been engaged. Some SONYs simply have a button on the remote to toggle through choices, SAP is used primarily for second language transmission of audio. Either move to a PBS station or some other channel that specifies SAP programmimg or turn the choice (MTS in some SONY menus) back to "main" by either a remote button or in the audio menu.
9 times out of 10 this is because something is not set right. On the remote look for a button labeled MTS. Press it while aiming at the TV and you should see the words MAIN, MONO and SAP as you continue pressing MTS. If the set is on SAP and you send in a signal without the Secondary Audio Program present, the set has no audio at all. This usually happens when someone inadvertantly hits the MTS button on the remote without realizing it. Also be sure to go into the menu, navigate to the audio page and make sure the speakers are set to ON.
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.
