Question about Standard (CRT) Televisions

Tv audio feed

My Panasonic tv, low def, works fine on almost all channels. One channel is in spanish, one has an npr (radio audio) on the PBS tv channel, several have no sound. None of these problems exist on any of the other tv's in the house. I've tried to rearrange the splitter feeds w/o success. Help!

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.

Try unplugging the unit, and leaving it unplugged for a while. Also, press all the buttons while it is unplugged..

It is possible - hopefully - that doing so will "wipe" all the ongoing processes "away", and you'll get back to normal operation.

It is a crude form of "rebooting", and it does indeed work for many different devices. Just unplug it for 30 minutes

My tv says no signal on one channel, how do i get that channel back ?


If you are getting an OTA signal, you should check your antenna, any amplifier or splitter and the station's status. The "No signal" message indicates that the signal is not strong enough to be resolved by the tuner.

1) Is your antenna pointing in the correct direction? Outdoor antennas can sometimes turn in the wind. Reset the antenna to the correct direction.

2) If you have a splitter dividing the signal between TVs or other devices, try a direct connection to the one TV that isn't receiving the channel. Similarly, if you have an amplifier in the system, try using the antenna without it. (I have seen an amplifier become a filter for select channels when damaged.) The only solution is to replace the device or omit it. (In my case, some channels require amplification; thus we replaced the amplifier.)

3) Has the station's local transmitter/repeater been damaged? Check their news feed. Towers fall and transmitter components can fail.

You could try and see if another tuner picks up the signal. Some low end tuners are more sensitive to signal strength. If you are getting the station from another source, check with the provider. We recently lost some of the local PBS stations due to problems with the cable provider's feed. Only one TV is connected to the set top box.

I hope this helps.

Hello - two channels on my Panasonic TV (CT-27E13) have no audio. The rest are fine. Any Ideas? Craig


On the original TV remote press the SAP button on the top right of the remote. Keep tapping until the TV says stereo and this should fix the problem.

Good Luck and please rate this solution....

This set was on a DVR cable box, but I moved it to another room, without a cable box. The problem is that I get no sound on two channels--the local ABC channel and TBS from Atlanta. I noticed that on the...


The SPA looks as if the box is just telling you that spanish audio is available. That would usually occur even if it isn't set to spanish, it is just showing it's available. Maybe try changing the audio channel? Ie. from TV to VCR back to TV etc. and make sure you don't set to SAP.


Lastly is ther an Atlanta Braves game on? Is it being simulcast on TBS and your local ABC channel? That may be the problem, it may be a problem with their telecast of the game. If this is the case, then call the cable company as it is a problem elsewhere.

Thanks!

My Bush tv NR Itv 2101 on channels 1 & 4 picture is fine but channels 2,3, & 5 has a black band 1 inch deep top and botton. All channels say 4.3 so can't be that, any idea's. regards JM


it is because the channel is being brodcast in hd and not just digital. it is an unfortutane side effect of the dtv convertion, all brodcast are now digital but not all are high def, if you had a high def tv and were watching and standard definition channel it would have thick black line on the left and right because the image does not fill the dislay

Nhens convertor box www.dsconter.com


Posting regarding the NHENS converter in January 2009. Bought it at Radio Shaft and it works -- feeding an old Panasonic b/w TV on channel 3. Live within 25 miles of the Empire State Building and the converter has managed to pick up and lock up on all NYC signals but channel 13. Also brings in channel 41 (licenced to NJ) and its subchannels plus the nearby channel 58 and its NJN-2 subchannel. Antenna is an amplified indoor rabbit ears with a loop also from Radio Shaft perched atop a kitchen cupboard on the 2nd floor of our house. Apparently, NHENS managed to correct the above referenced problems.

Instead of explaining the SAP/Stereo function to you, the easiest way to get the TV back to normal is while the set is on press the ACTION and POWER buttons at the same time and hold them until the CHK screen appears. Once that does release the buttons and then press the action button again to exit the CHK screen. Your TV is now back to the factory settings and will need to have the channels programmed again. By the way the SAP/STEREO button on the remote should be near the upper left hand corner of the remote itself.

Some channels have no sound some are in spanish


With your remote, go into the menu, find the audio setup and click off the SAP. Thats the Second Audio Program. Some Broadcasters send a second lanquage along with the regular audio. Someone must have been looking around or playing with the remote and turned on the SAP.. Good Luck PS please do not forget to rate this thread
