    How do you have your TV connected? Direct to cable? Using a cable box or satellite receiver? If you have a box or receiver, how is that connected? RF (antenna) connection to the TV on channel 3 or 4, direct a/v cables, HDMI?

Not all programs are available in multiple languages. if when you press the button to switch it to SAP and it goes but you do not get the alternate language then it is not avaliable.

Why the sound only on certain channels and some channels start speaking Spanish?


You most likely have the SAP (Second Audio Program) feature enabled. Many shows do not have this sound track and that is when you hear nothing. When the SAP is on, it is usually in Spanish for English-speaking programs. Check your TV remote for SAP and see if you can disable it.

HBO is in Spanish, other channels are English. How do you get HBO in English.


SAP IS : secondary audio program--if engaged certain channels will have audio in Spanish instead of English.


Both the set and any cable or sat box etc hooked up can cause this---check the audio mode on the TV first to make sure SAP is not selected. If not, check the box providing the signal to the set, it also has SAP.

If you cannot find the setting on the box you can unplug the box and it will in most cases revert to NO SAP or you can contact your provider for signal to learn how to change the setting.

The set does not cause this kind of problem--it is something set by accident wrong.

What is sap and how do you turn it off


SAP is an alternate audio program usually seen in markets with different languages. The most common is for a Spanish broadcast of an English program. It is also used to provide audio descriptions of programming for the blind. There should be a menu option under Audio to turn this on and off.

Spectroniq PLTV-20NW32 volume only works on some channels


Hi lisadean767,
It is possible that without realizing, your TV is programmed to receive SAP or Second Audio Program audio. When this happens, your TV responds like this: when SAP is not being broadcast, you'll receive regular program audio. However, when the SAP audio is sent along with the regular, (English) program audio, your TV will automatically switch to the SAP channel. You'll know your TV is programmed to receive SAP because you'll hear the commercials in English and any other program in English if the SAP is not being sent. 

Check and see if your tv is setup for SAP. Let me know if this helps and if I can be of further assistance, Please rate this solution.

Sound


SAP is short for "second audio program" and is a way to send a second audio track along with the main one. In many areas stations use SAP to provide Spanish or other language sound for movies and other programs. If you have SAP turned on you don't know it until you tune to a channel where it's being used, and then you hear the other sound. Just turn SAP off using the remote control or TV menu.

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.

Tv audio feed


You most likely have the SAP mode activated. Look for a button on your remote or an item in the on-screen menus of your television called MTS or SAP. You want to set this to "Normal" or "Stereo" (or even "MONO") mode to hear the regular television sound.

If it is in SAP (Secondary Audio Program) mode, as I believe yours is, you will hear other audio. Often this is a translation to another language, such as Spanish, and other times (notably with PBS stations) it is an unrelated audio (often music) feed.

Vcr spanish language


You may have your SAP settings turned on in your VCR. Check your setup menu and turn SAP off SAP stands for Secondary Audio Program, it allows for bilingual sound if the station is transmitting a SAP signal. Thank you,

No Sound on TV


I did not answer the original question you posed but the SAP is the acronym for Separate Audio Program and is used to provide spanish for instance on a show which is broadcast in both english and spanish. The problem is not all stations have audio on the SAP. If your audio processor is set to SAP and you switch to a channel which has nothing on SAP you loose audio. I'm guessing someone suggested this prior to this post. If you checked your TV and it is not on SAP that eliminates that. I would look at the audio circuit for problems. Either no power to the audion circuit, bad solder joints, blown output IC or possibly a blown speaker. I know the last one is remote but it does happen and it never hurts to check the simple problems first. Besides you aren't embarrassed later when you find out it was something simple. If you are going to check these issues out remember safety. Good luck.
