SOURCE: tv audio feed

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.

SOURCE: Sanyo tv channel stuck

A POSSIBLE solution. I have the same stet...got it used, but it's in good condition.
It was stuck on a channel. I went iinto the menu and fiddled with the channel programs and "deleted" the channel and now I can freely change channels.

By the way, I could use a manual for this ...got one?

Use your remote control to check the TV SAP settings. This is "second audio program" and is often used to carry the TV sound in another language. If SAP is turned on you won't notice it unless you tune to a channel where the SAP signal is present. Most remotes have a single button to control the audio settings, so it's easy to turn the feature on without knowing it by bumping the button. Turn off SAP and you should be back to English.

I have a Truetech CR130TT8, it's worked great, but suddenly some channels are broadcasting in Spanish & some have no sound. This happened before with the spanish & I was able


Hi Jan,

This is usually a result of selecting "SAP" (Secondary Audio Program).

You should find a button or setting on the TV, remote or both that will cycle between the main audio program (English) and the secondary audio program (Spanish) every time you press / select it.

You may also find this to be a setting on your cable TV or satellite TV set top box.

I hope this helps & good luck!

How do I change my audio setting


It depends on what you want to change about your audio setting. My cable box remote has two audio settings: one for changing the SAP language sound from English, to Spanish or French; and a setting that changes two separate audio functions: one changes the broadcast sound from Dolby Digital (TM) sound to regular stereo sound, and the other will allow using either a fixed setting (cable box sound level is at a fixed level allowing one to use the sound control on the TV, or other audio receiver), or a variable setting (allowing the use of the cable box to adjust the audio level).

My Sony TV control also allows me to adjust the tv's audio treble, bass, balance, and special effect sounds, and if needed, to turn the tv speakers off. Hope this is helpful..................Gary

What is theSAP button for? Why, when button is pushed, that the sound is muted on certain channels?


Sap is for secondary audio, some TV broadcasts contain english as well as another language, ussually spanish. If it is mute it probably thinks there is something else there but there is nothing. TNT ussually has it depending on your TV provider and people will hit the sap button by mistake, It's funny to listen to them freak out thinking TNT has gone spanish.

Accidentally set tv to display what appears to be closed captions during a program, not commercials - in Spanish, not my language - when searching for a way to have closed captioning. It displays on only...


You have a setting on the SETUP on your remote. You have the option to use English or Spanish. Somehow, you must have accidentally changed the language. I did this on one of my TV's.
Just go through the setup again.

Hopefully this will solve your problem.

No sound on a few channels. all others have sound. 26 in vizio.


Since you have sound, the audio circuits are working. The most common cause of this is to have the TV set to use SAP. There are many channels where this is an unused option and others that broadcast the same audio on the standard channel as well as SAP. If you change the channels and get Spanish rather than English for example, you have SAP turned on. Check the audio menu for SAP status.

Let us know what you find.

I have a Sharp 19 with no sound on some channels.


Make sure it is not on the SAP or secondary audio setting. Some channels broadcast English and Spanish or English and Silence. If you are set on the second audio broken you may hear nothing. Check your manual.

Tv has sound on all channels but one. Had sound but 30 min later no sound. When watching two tv's on same channel the one with no sound was lagging behind other tv not in sync as all other tv's in house...


Check to see if your audio source is set to SAP. This stands for secondary audio program. For example, some stations broadcast english and spanish. Some stations broadcast english and nothing. If you are on a channel that broadcasts english and nothing, and you are SAP setting, you will hear nothing.

What is sap and how do you turn it off


SAP is an alternate audio program usually seen in markets with different languages. The most common is for a Spanish broadcast of an English program. It is also used to provide audio descriptions of programming for the blind. There should be a menu option under Audio to turn this on and off.

Spectroniq PLTV-20NW32 volume only works on some channels


Hi lisadean767,
It is possible that without realizing, your TV is programmed to receive SAP or Second Audio Program audio. When this happens, your TV responds like this: when SAP is not being broadcast, you'll receive regular program audio. However, when the SAP audio is sent along with the regular, (English) program audio, your TV will automatically switch to the SAP channel. You'll know your TV is programmed to receive SAP because you'll hear the commercials in English and any other program in English if the SAP is not being sent. 

Check and see if your tv is setup for SAP. Let me know if this helps and if I can be of further assistance, Please rate this solution.
