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??

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

    Selecting might, it couldn't hurt to give that a try, but you would have to de-select it when changing to another channel...

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.

Bought a rca surround sound system an hooked it wks great but cant get surround sound on my cable chanels just when watching a dvd...what do i need to do?

You need to make sure that the Audio in the programs you're watching are broadcast in Surround.

You can also select a channel that is broadcasting in HD, and Digital Audio to see if that helps

To save money and bandwidth, they'll only broadcast the audio in the Analog format.

Hope that helps.

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.

TV channel sound from a different channel

I just unplugged the tv from the power source and disconnected the cable connection and then reconnected them back after sometime. The TV started auto programming after turning on and that resolved the problem.
