The TV has perfect picture but no sound how do I get the sound back on


Are you by chance on the SAP audio channel instead of the main channel? You should be able to go into the menu and look at the audio settings. If you are on SAP change it back to main. Some stations do not have audio on the SAP channel.

No sound on certain channels


Your TV is equipped with SAP mode, this mode allows you to hear sound in a different language if available, if that second language is not available on that channel you will get no sound on that channel, this is a very common mistake which occurs when some one presses( usually by accident) a button on the remote control, the button is displayed as SAP on remote control or as secondary audio in audio mode in menu, simple to resolve is to switch this setting to STEREO on audio setting.

No Volume from cable input


The sound is probably set to the SAP channel (language) and the SAP channel is not active on the program you are watching. Just push the SAP button on the remote. The button might be labelled SAP or LANG. This will return you to the main sound channel which is always active.

Stereo SAP will not come off a few channels , no sound on these channels


Do a factory reset to this set. The Secondary Audio Program [SAP] to all channels will be cleared. Refer its user manual for details.

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.

Several channels have lost sound entirely on our Mitsubishi CS-32509 television. On other channels things are in Spanish at times while in English at other times. Then there are other channels that have no...


You've managed to turn on "SAP" (second audio mode) which will cause the trouble. It doesn't affect all channels, as you're finding out, and can be frustrating. Mitsubishi remotes have a singe button for SAP, if I remember correctly, and you can press it and change modes without knowing it. (The button may be marked AUDIO or SAP.) Just press the button until the on-screen display tells you SAP is off. This will bring the sound back to normal.

This ranks up there with the mysterious black box that appears on some channels. This is because of closed-captioning being set to TEXT, and it happens the same way: pressing a button on the remote.

I have a sony tv and cant get sound on 3 different channels..the other tv in the house is fine


that's a weird one. You might check your audio settings to make sure it is not on SAP (secondary audio programming) sometimes that will cause lack of audio on certain channels since some have it and some don't

No sound on certain channels


Hi leelee, some cable and air signal channels have a separate audio program in the signal(commonly known as SAP) it may be that the SAP is activated or turned ON in your TV. This no sound condition only shows up on those channels that have the provision for it, but the signal is not being transmitted, that's why you have no sound on those channels. You will have to look for the sound key on your remote control and deactivated from there, or you might have to actually select the menu and scroll down to audio features, it is sure that you will find the SAP feature turned on. Good Luck

SAP


Hi Suezie,

The problem is most likely your SAP being turned On.

SAP was created for audio programing including translations into a 2nd language. On nearly all sets, the SAP being ON will essentially select an alternate audio stream and will de-select or mute the main audio from the channel your are viewing. However not all TV stations have SAP enabled.

I am the Chief Engineer of a TV station in Denver, CO. We are not using SAP so if you selected SAP while watching my station you would get noise or static. There would not be any audio there.

Go to the front panel of your TV and select the "MENU" function. Step through the menus to Audio features and De-select SAP or Enable your main audio and this should take care of the problem. Alternatively you might be able to unplug your set for a period of time and it would reset itself. I used to get calls from elderly viewers when the set wouldn't pick up the UHF TV stations anymore. These were always after a power failure and the set had defualted to factory settings,

Different set manufacturers use different menu schemes and withou a password feature, these menus are so simple a small child playing with those fascinating buttons can change them for you to something you really don't want.

Good luck and write back if you can't find it. The set manufacturer and model number would help me look up a menu tree for your TV set.

Thak you,
Bernarr Howell
