Do a reset to this TV, and then check. There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here.

SOURCE: under the channel it says

I found this information in the manual, and perhaps it will help:

1 Switch the audio.

• Every time you press [AUDIO], the audio will

be switched as below.

MAIN : Outputs main-audio

SAP : Outputs second audio channel
MONO : Outputs mono-

Also the manual says this about SAP:

SAP

(Secondary Audio Program)

Second-audio channel delivered

separately from main-audio channel.

This audio channel is used as
an alternate in bilingual broadcasting.

Here is a link for the manual, in case you want to go over the settings. I'm thinking this is a setting problem in the menu, but it can be a physical problem with a cable line.
http://dukeelectronic.com/Manual/IWT3206.pdf
Of course it could also be a trickier problem, but check your settings, check the cable line with another TV if possible, and then contact ILO Support for help, in the event nothing fixes it.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

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


Hello
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.
OK.

No sound,but good pic.everything else works fine.(toshiba 57hx94)


hello,

• Check the antenna/cable connections (see Chapter 2).

• The station may have broadcast difficulties. Try another channel.

• The sound may be muted. Press VOLUME.

• If you hear no sound, try setting the MTS feature to STEREO mode (page 81).

• Make sure the SPEAKERS function in the AUDIO SETUP menu is set correctly (page 83).

• If you are not receiving a second audio program from a known SAP source, make sure the MTS feature is

set to SAP mode (page 81).

• If you hear audio that seems "incorrect" for the program you are watching (such as music or a foreign

language), the SAP mode may be on. Set the MTS feature to STEREO mode (page 81).

• When using an external audio amplifier, if you connect the amplifier to the VAR. AUDIO OUT jacks, the
volume of the TV and amplifier must be set above 0 or you will not hear any sound (page 20).

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


Hello
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.

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.

No sound on some channels, other channels fine


Your SAP/MTS function is most likely turned on. This feature has 3 modes: Stereo, Mono and SAP. Stereo and Mono are easy to understand, it's the SAP that can get you. SAP stands for Second Audio Production. It is used to provide weather, information or an additional language translation of a program. Some broadcasters simply transmit the mono audio over the SAP audio channel when the are not using it for other purposes. Other broadcasters simply do not use it, which does not give you any audio. Look on your remote for a SAP or MTS button. If you do not see one, look in your TV user menu for this feature. If you are using a cable box, look in the audio menu of the cable box. You are looking for something set to SAP... just change it to STEREO. I hope this was helpful.

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.

No sound on some channels


your tv has audio setting called SAP that is for channels that are broadcasting on a second language like spanish, on the channels that do not have this SAP capabilitie you will not hear anything unless you put your tv on stereo mode, so you need to go out of the Sap mode by a button on the remote, check for mts, button , or audio thank you

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

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.
