This television must have the ability to broadcast channels in SAP. Look for an SAP or MTS or AUDIO button on your Sylvania remote. The audio menu might be the place to find this setting as well. You want to remove the SAP and have the tv in either mono or stereo.
SAP, Mono, Stereo, Etc. You should be able to switch this from your remote. Even universal remotes should have this button to adjust sounds. Otherwise you need to go into the TV menu (not the remote) and change it from there. The only way you can change it on those channels is to switch manually. Happens a lot on these older TVs. No worries. Very common.
On many sets, the audio channel can be switched by remote control or through a SAP switch located around the tuning panel or "on screen programming." Usually, there is a setting labeled SAP, AUDIO SELECT, B-AUDIO, MTS, or MENU. By changing the setting, you should be able to select SAP. Not all TV sets are alike, so you might want to check your instruction manual for all the details.
SAP means "Separate Audio Program" - usually SAP mode is for changing the language of the broadcast (i.e. from English to Spanish) and is also used to enhance the sound broadcast of some programs.
Not having a remote may make this difficult.... you need to find a way into the set's menu- some sets have a "menu" button on them..... some require two buttons be held down together.... look at the set carefully.... if you have the manual, it is a good time to look at it.
When you get into the menu, find the AUDIO menu and de-select SAP. Your sound should be restored.
If you cannot get into the menu, you will need a remote. Write down the brand and model of your set, go to a decent electronics store, and browse the "universal remotes". Find one that supports your set and follow the instructions to set it up for your television. You will then be able to access the menu and turn off SAP.
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.
You have turned on SAP sound. Switch your MTS TV sound back to main or standard or Stereo. OK is used to choose your selection once you 'highlight' it with the arrow keys. If you are having menu issues, unplug the TV for ten seconds, plug it back in and try the menu again. (you may have to reset your channels)
hi, try using menu button from tv go to audio menu and see if you can find sap option,if not try buying an universal remote,program it to work with tv and pull the menu, that should fix problem,thanks,faradio.
