Question about Sharp Aquos LC-37G4U 37 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

Open Question

How do you turn off SAP? When I clicked on MTS, STEREO-ON AIR SAP - ON AIR & MONO appeared. When I hit ENTER it dropped to SAP -ON AIR. The arrows around ENTER don't move it anywhere and if I hit ENTER again it moves down to MONO. Can anyone help me please?

SOURCE: SAP - I can't get my new TV out of Mono and into stereo.

Are you using a cable box sush as a Comcast cable box? If so then the volume control within the cable box is most likely not high enough for the TV to detect a stereo pilot signal. The Comcast remote (if thats what you have) still is programmed to operate the volume within thier box, the volume display will be at the top of the picture and it will be in white. Turn it up until the word "stereo" appears. then leave it at that setting and use your TV's volume control only.

This tv is kind of got a mind of its own the only time you can adjust it on mine is on cable that comes in stereo actually it usually switches by itsself after it reads the broadcasted sound. Hope this helps.

Commercials are broadcast in lower quality than the programs, and it is normal for the signal to change when going to commercials. If you are watching ATSC you will notice also the video changes from HD (widescreen) to SD (normal) as well.

Brand new, connected to new cox cable box, video works great but no sound


if just running HDMI cable try adding audio cables too, check all your volume and mute settings in the system setup.
If you have audio on most channels, but have silence on some or all of your local network channels, you may have the Secondary Audio Programming (SAP) turned ON. Complete the following steps to turn off SAP.
  1. Press the Settings or MENU button on the digital remote.

    Result: The Settings screen displays.
  2. Choose from the following options.
If... Then... Disable SAPdisplays Press the Select button. Choose SAP Languagedisplays Use the left or right arrow buttons to choose the English setting and press Select. PREFERENCESdisplays Scroll to the Language option, select Audio, then select the option labeled Primary or the one labeled English. If the above quick fix doesn't work, there may be a problem with MTS, Stereo, or another SAP issue. Try the following:
  • Verify in the program listing guide that the program has MTS, Stereo, or SAP features.
  • Check to see if the MTS, STEREO or SAP light on the TV or VCR is on.
If the light is not on, try the following:
  • Push the MTS, STEREO, or SAP button on the TV or VCR.
  • Adjust the fine tuning on the TV set to restore the stereo or SAP.

My remote broke and some of my channels are on sap. and when i go to the menu there is no audio setting how do i put the channel setting back to stereo or mono


Hello

While receiving an MTS broadcast, press [Audio] repeatedly to to cycle through the available channel.
Main: Outputs main audio.
SAP: output secondary audio programme.
Mono: Outputs mono audio.
You must ahve remote control to change these, because only remote control have Audio button on it to control these. OK.

I think that my TV soney braiva xbr has an issue with SAP but some ch. are in spanish some do not have sound How do i reset this tv?


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.

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.
