Re: No sound

Hi, It seems that the SAP, no audio, distorted audio is a common problem for some RCA units even with the use of the original remote and in your case made more difficult with a replacement remote. Two things you can try: 1. Some say that unplugging the TV set for a long time, a couple of hours at least will do a hard/system reset on the microcontroller inside the TV hopefully resetting set-up the audio (including SAP) to default; 2. contact Customer Support at Thomson and explain your problem; 3. Try going a google on "RCA SAP manual reset"; or 4. Buy an original remote and not another replacement. Hope this work out for you and give you some ideas. Pls post again how things turn up. Good luck and kind regards.

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

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.

I have a TruFlat RCA model # 27F520T have lost original remote and FPA lock is on how do I unlock without original remote? Dish universal remote not working to unlock tv, it will pull up menu but cannot...

Try this -
  1. Press menu for main menu.
  2. Press CH + or CH - to highlight preferences.
  3. Press "OK" to enter preferences submenu.
  4. Press CH + or CH - to high light "FPA"
  5. Press VOL + or VOL - to turn the FPA on or off.
  6. Press MENU repeatedly to exit.
  7. Back to normal
  • FPA stands for Front Panel Lock. It makes it so kids don't push all the buttons on the front of your TV. The power button on the TV will still work and the remote will still function as normal.

I have a 2002 RCA, TV , Model #B27TF680 and some chan. are in Spanish, some in English and some do not have any sound. SAP is on and the remote does not offer any way of turning it off....Please...

You can simply go to the menu screen by clicking the 'menu' botton on the remote and select 'sound' to fix it. (Sometimes the word 'sound' will be replaced by ' voice', 'FM', 'AM' etc.)

How do I get my rca truflat tv to get out of mono?

Press the MTS on the remote control handset to select STEREO, MONO or SAP. All the options will be available only when the current TV channel is broadcasting that option. Channels will not always carry programes, that have all MTS options. If "STEREO" appears on the screen when you select a channel means stereo sound is available with current programme. You can hear sound from both speakers. If broadcast is not strong and clear, stereo sound will not be available. Press "MTS" button to change it to "Mono". This will eliminate the noise. If "MONO" appears on the screen when you select a channel, stereo effect will not be availabe, even though you have set it to stereo. If "SAP" appears when you select a channel 'Second Audio Programe' [SAP] broadcasting is available for that programme. Press the "MTS" button to 'SAP' and you can hear that programe in different language or some other kind of audio.

My DVD player is hooked up to my RCA truflat but i cannot find the picture. I lost the original remote to my RCA truflat and am now using a RCA universal remote. How do I get picture on my tv?

There should be a button on the front of the TV that says TV/VIDEO or INPUT. Turn on the DVD player and put a DVD in it and press play. Press the TV/VIDEO button until the picture is present.

Good Luck....

My FPA Lock is on and we cant find the remote and we us comcast cable. Can you help or do I need to get a new remote?

Same thing happened to me recently. I tried everything from going to and RCA solutions... to NO avail. I brought an original universal remote and that didn't work. I went to radioshack and brought a RCA universal remote and hit the power button and it came on. I hope this works for others. RCA kept telling me that I would have to buy another RCA remote. Nope! the RCA universal remote from radio shack worked just fine and cost only $7.00.
