Auto SAP how do i turn off Auto SAP? my dad messed with the TV and now we have "white snow"for all the channels. I talked to the cable company and it's not our cable service. My dad was trying to ?rase"the spanish channels" so he tinkered with the remote and went into menu, selected channels and pressed on "skip channel"afterwards he told me that the TV just went into white snow. How can i reverse what he did and place all settings back to default? HELP!

    CANNOT GET OUT OF AUTO SAP

  • Anonymous Jul 21, 2008

    Auto Sap just showed up on the TV monitor and I also noticed that I don't have sound for about 8 of the channels. How do I get rid of this.

    I also have that problem on a 32" Sony TV bought in 2002. What a nuisance.

    When you change stations Auto-sap shows up on the screen. It does turn off after a few seconds. Isn't a problem but am curious why.
    It is a Sony TV

The problem is not a cable one, but a TV function. Pull out your user manual for your TV. My dad just had this happen, and he has a Sony WEGA TV. The auto sap is an AUTO Secondary Audio Program, you need to find the menu to back out of it.

Good luck.

Rca entertainment series pip. The audio is messed up. Some channels r silent, some are in spanish, some music play but not the voices. Called cable company they said the cable is fine. Help me please.


You have a simple problem:

It can be either in the set or a cable box if you use one:

The set in the audio menu or setup menu will have a setting called SAP- WHICH is secondary audio program--it will on certain channels do exactly what you describe--Spanish for Monday Night Football and music and such.

Find it in either the box if used or the set and switch it with the remote to Stereo (move it OFF of SAP)

I am surprised the cable company did not suggest this but ......

I need to tune my sharp tv to a set top box but am not having any luck. It only has an antennae connection and no AV channel. I have done an auto tune but cant get the set top box to work.


I have no idea what an antennae connection is. I assume you are talking about a Coaxial cable converter (large box that connects in line on the cable input). If this is the case, the box is override either channel 3 or 4. It either has a switch to pick which one of these to use or it is written on the box which one it uses.

If you are using a VGA connection (3 pins with 1 yellow, 1 white, and 1 red connector), then you have to find the AV channel. Every TV has one, unless it is like 4 decades old. If the TV is a few decades old, it may not have a channel called "AV" or "AUX". For example my dad's 25 year old TV uses 91 as the AUX channel. It is common for channels in the 90's to be used for this or channel 0. Best to just turn all the manually add/remove channels while the box is on. Then you can spot the right channel and add it to the listings.

How do i program cable channel in to my 27" tv ,,only has local channels 2-13 when we use auto program, no other stations lock in to the tv....SAP in left hand corner 27" glass screen flat


You have to make sure the TV is set to cable not air. Will not look for upper programs unless it is set to cable. SAP needs to be off in the setup menu unless you want it on. Secondary Audio Program(SAP) is for foreign languages.

SONY KV32V16...can't get all my cable stations.


I called our cable company about getting a converter box and it ended up I didn't need one after all. The cable rep told me to go to the menu and try the auto-programming. He was familiar with the TV I have and said that a converter box is not necessary. So, I tried the auto-programming and still didn't get all the channels...then I noticed on the menu for the channel set up there was the word "Cable" and after it it said "Off" so, I switched that to "On" and did the auto-programming, and Presto! I got all my channels.

No sound on just one channel


Do you have another TV in house that works with this channel correctly? Do you have a VCR (or VCR/DVD combo) that you can use to tune to this channel? I'm wondering if your tuner is going bad on this one channel. Do you have SAP (Second Audio Program) turned on? You may want to turn it on and then check channel for sound. I'm assuming that you're getting your cable feed thru coax and not composite (red & white audio). If you are using composite, try switching the red & white inputs to see if sound comes in. It's possible that cable company is only outputting audio on left or right channel and something is wrong either with one of your TV's speakers or with the cable company's output.

When connected to cable - sometimes snow on channels 14-21.


The RF Connector could be loose either because of bad solder connection or just that part of the tuner could be going bad in the TV. One fix or repair is too use a cable box to eliminate the tuner issue or borrow one for test, and or buy a inexpensive vcr and hook it to cable first then take the output out of vcr and run to tv tuner input. Or better yet, use Yellow ,Red, White cables (Composite video) and run it into respective inputs on TV if it has those inputs. Let me know if this solves your problem or at least gets you close. Thank you. And talk to you soon....Jay

Sound isn't working correctly


Hello dotdeb99, Use your remote to go to the menu on your TV and scroll through the menu items, you should see the SAP feature. Then turn it off. You can also get the users manual for your TV on-line and it should have SAP instructions in it. Just remember SAP is a TV menu item, it will not be actually on the remote itself. Thank you.

TV plays some channels in spanish


The tv may a SAP circuit fault (Second Audio Program). This circuit can mess up and cause some channels which are carrying SAP to put out the wrong language. I've seen this happen a few times. AN IC may have gotten zapped when the transformer blew. Possibly the microprocessor IC. Stargazer
