Hello friends...i have a 15 lcd of alba company..model no alcd15tv2 ro3sx2...i m having problem with my tv sound as when i connects to tv through rf in sound dosent come...and when i join a dvd or any...

You have something in the set's menu set wrong--if sound ok with a DVD set is ok---look in menu for something like SAP= most sets have Mono-Stereo-Sap settings.

Sap is secondary audio program which is for a second language to be broadcast (French, Spanish etc.) and if not active there will be no sound on selected channels.

I suspect a careful look will show SAP is engaged and some remotes have a button (MTS etc that will unwittingly get pressed).

Good luck and hope this helped.

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.

I cant get SAP off the tv

Access your menu, and navigate through.

Look for the Audio option then something with the words "SAP" or "Secondary Audio Programming"
then, of course, change it to mono or stereo.

With your universal, press the "TV" button or the button you would press to have it communicate with your TV, then press menu or settings.

Greetings de_on,

Per your owners manual I found you should have an option in your Audio menu labeled MTS. You should be able to adjust the MTS by selecting it and press the + key.

There should be three options under MTS: Stereo, Mono, Auto SAP. You would probably want to select Stereo as Auto SAP will engage the Second Audio Programing which will cause other sound problems.

Hope this helps.

No audio on select channels

Go into the TV's menu and see what type of audio mode its set on. If it says sap turn on to stereo or mono. If it says stereo, set to mono. Also try to unplug set for 12 to 24 hours.
