Question about Akai LCT3201AD 32 in. LCD Television

2 Answers

SAP I get an SAP(Simultaneaous Audio Program, I assume) message at the top of the screen. I can find no way, in the menu, to shut off the SAP. It is causing audio problems and it is almost impossible to listen to the normal sound. Any sugestion are greatly appreciated.

    I found a button on the remote that is labeled MPS which changes the color of the "MONO SAP" alternately-Mono(yellow)SAP(red) vs. The model of the TV is LCT3285TA.

There might be a SAP button on the remote or under a cover on the remote, or it might be an audio button, you want Main or Stereo. I couldnt pull up a picture of the remote, but I would suspect that if the SAP function is not in the menu it is probably on the remote.

You probably have the second audio program (SAP) turned on. Return to the initial set up procedure and disable SAP.

How to I disable the SAP function on RCA FLAT 19 INCH screen?


Hello
From its main Menu, surf towards its sound Menu.
By using UP/DOWN buttons of the remote handset, select SAP

SAP (Second Audio Program) (for analog channels only) Plays the

program's audio in a second language, if one is available. The TV displays

the word SAP in the channel banner when you tune to a program that is

broadcast with SAP information. SAP audio is broadcast in mono. SAP is also

used to broadcast a program's audio with descriptions of the video for the
visually impaired. Press the right arrow button to turn SAP on or off.
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.

No sound on some channels, other channels fine


Your SAP/MTS function is most likely turned on. This feature has 3 modes: Stereo, Mono and SAP. Stereo and Mono are easy to understand, it's the SAP that can get you. SAP stands for Second Audio Production. It is used to provide weather, information or an additional language translation of a program. Some broadcasters simply transmit the mono audio over the SAP audio channel when the are not using it for other purposes. Other broadcasters simply do not use it, which does not give you any audio. Look on your remote for a SAP or MTS button. If you do not see one, look in your TV user menu for this feature. If you are using a cable box, look in the audio menu of the cable box. You are looking for something set to SAP... just change it to STEREO. I hope this was helpful.

How do you remove text from your tv screen


I am assuming it is the closed captioning that is showing... should be a menu item to turn of CC ('Closed Caption') or SAP (Second Audio Program tends to be bilingual and not CC).

How do i program cable channel in to my 27" tv ,,only has local channels 2-13 when we use auto program, no other stations lock in to the tv....SAP in left hand corner 27" glass screen flat


You have to make sure the TV is set to cable not air. Will not look for upper programs unless it is set to cable. SAP needs to be off in the setup menu unless you want it on. Secondary Audio Program(SAP) is for foreign languages.

My tv is on spanish how do i take it off


Spanish on the screen or Spanish through the speakers on some channels? If its the on-screen display that's in Spanish, you pick the language using the setup menu with the remote control. If you're getting Spanish through the speakers, you probably have turned on the SAP (second audio program) function. In some areas with a large enough population, SAP is often used to broadcast program audio in a different language. On channels with no SAP broadcast you don't hear any problems. The SAP function is usually controlled by a button on the remote and probably got pressed by accident.

Go into the menu and under AUDIO and make sure that the sound is set to STEREO, and not SAP (second audio program). If you have a separate setting for SAP then shut it off.
