Question about RCA D52W19 52" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Intermittent Sound Hi..My RCA D52W19 has a problem with the sound .The problem only occurs on two specific channels when they are broadcasting the same program. At first I thought it was a problem with my cable provider but other sets in the house do not do this. It sounds like about every 8th word cuts out.There doesnt appear to be any problem on any other cable channels or when playing DVD's.I also have a satellite dish and experience no problems on any of its channels. Any ideas??

Re: Intermittent Sound

Check the audio menu and see if you've selected SAP (Second Audio Program) and if so unselect it..

Hi I pressed the wrong button turning the TV on, now I have no sound and can't get it back. please help.


SAP (Second Audio Program) may be turned on. This used to be a widespread RCA problem maybe caused by incorrect conversion of analog signals for viewing as phony HD images. Costly class action lawsuits addressed the problem in USA. Most of the specific equipment causing the problem used by broadcast/production/satellite industries was either adjusted correctly or replaced. If the problem re-occurs, it may caused by specific TV channels or programs that you watch. Codes inserted in the signal are incorrect and confusing the RCA TV Guide and audio processing circuits. The error causes SAP to be incorrectly selected as default for all channels.


Change audio settings in customer adjust menu to Stereo from SAP. Sometimes the On screen TV Guide set-up must be cleared of location, etc., and set-up again.

Sometimes it is difficult to set correctly. Unplug TV for 12-24 hours and TV may reset to default stereo setting instead of SAP.

This was an active Class Action legal issue 10-15 years ago in the USA.

Channels wont come in

sounds like the tuner is shot...mine is. easy cheap solution is to use either a cable box or a vcr as your tuner (hook it up to the a/v input if channels 3 and 4 are currently affected)
