    JVC tv will have sound on 2/3 the channels.  TNT will be english in the morning and spanish in late afternoon.  This just started one day,  no pop's or click's just specific, and common, channels get no audio.

Picture but no sound magnavox HD tv


check to see in audio menu for set and sat or cable box if SAP is engaged as this will (Spanish) cause no sound on certain channels.

The problem or setting exists in the set and most boxes providing signal to the set.

What is theSAP button for? Why, when button is pushed, that the sound is muted on certain channels?


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.

I have a Sharp 19 with no sound on some channels.


Make sure it is not on the SAP or secondary audio setting. Some channels broadcast English and Spanish or English and Silence. If you are set on the second audio broken you may hear nothing. Check your manual.

Tv has sound on all channels but one. Had sound but 30 min later no sound. When watching two tv's on same channel the one with no sound was lagging behind other tv not in sync as all other tv's in house...


Check to see if your audio source is set to SAP. This stands for secondary audio program. For example, some stations broadcast english and spanish. Some stations broadcast english and nothing. If you are on a channel that broadcasts english and nothing, and you are SAP setting, you will hear nothing.

Sound goes out for certain programs or commercials on different channels, but not all of them


Check your tv's audio settings. If there is an "SAP" button on your remote try hitting that. It stands for secondary audio program. Most manufacturers put it near the corners of the remote leaving it prone to getting hit without knowing. Most shows are broadcast with a spanish version of the audio. Hitting that button should allow you to hear it, but some tv networks do not broadcast the SAP audio making it seem like there is no audio. It usually affects more than one channel, and commercials do not broadcast SAP either.

We have a 32" Toshiba Tv and the sound is off on two channels and Stereo Sap is displayed on these two channels. Any suggestions as to how I could clear this?


turn off the sap in the audio menu. sap is "secondary audio programming" i believe, and sometimes stations will broadcast in spanish on this sap or will broadcast weather or emergency information. these channels are probably broadcasting a mute sound over the air.

TV in SAP mode and cannot remove. Lost original remote.


I had the same problem. You have to order a replacement remote with the MTS button (Multi Channel Sound)
Call RCA Support @ 1.800.338.0376 I believe the remote part number is RCR130TB1

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.

Some channels have no sound some are in spanish


With your remote, go into the menu, find the audio setup and click off the SAP. Thats the Second Audio Program. Some Broadcasters send a second lanquage along with the regular audio. Someone must have been looking around or playing with the remote and turned on the SAP.. Good Luck PS please do not forget to rate this thread
