Question about Akai LCT2701AD Television

1 Answer

When watching television my tv switches from mono to sap mode on it's own, which interrupts the sound, it occurs most during commercials for some reason. I've tried pressing the mts button to put it on sap mode or any one of the other modes but it doesn't seem to matter, it just keeps switching. I also took the batteries out of my remote thinking the mts button was stuck but it still switched modes on it's own.

Hello,

All plasma an lcd TV have boards that control vertical and horizontal output to their respective areas. They are connected to the screen by ribbon cables. If one of these boards fails all together, has a failed chip, a bad connection, or a bad ground somewhere it will result in a black line in the area of that board. A bad ribbon cable connection on the bottom will result in a vertical black bar though the screen. Many times reseating the connection will fix it, if the ribbon cable has been nicked there could be a severed connection. They an sometimes be fixed, but it is a pain. An yes I have done it, but the bar is gone. The same will happen if the chip that outputs to that area opens. The connectors are the first place to look paying close attention to the cable, they are extremely delicate so great care must be taken if you decide to tinker with em, the usually have lift locks that release them, but it is very easy to wreck em.

Good luck.

No sound on some channels, other channels fine


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.

No sound on my Sony Triniton - video has SAP on it


YOU ARE IN SAP MODE. IF THERE IS NO SECOND AUDIO PROGRAM ON THE STATION YOU ARE WATCHING YOU WILL GET NO AUDIO. SWITCH SAP TO STEREO OR MONO. SOME REMOTES HAVE A MTS BUTTON ON THEM.

No sound on four channels while all other channels sound is fine.


You most likely have the SAP1.gif mode activated. Look for a button on your remote or an item in the on-screen menus of your television1.gif called MTS or SAP. You want to set this to "Main" "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 may hear no sound or a different audio program. 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. On some stations there may be no sound at all with the audio mode set to SAP.

Sound problem!!!!


Hi, new one on me but heres one thing you should do with that comcast box, un-plug the AC cord on the comcast box for about 1 minute, plug it back in and be patient while it re-boots, can take as long as 4-5 minutes, this re-sets all the logic states in the box, hope this helps.

Trouble with sound


Make sure the TV is not in SAP mode and that the TV speakers are set to "on" in the Audio setup menu. If a cable box is being used, make sure the volume is turned up.
