Soney 32" flat screen tv. 2006

I am getting a program in Spanish instead of English. On Tuesday, Lost, on ABC, was in Spanish but the adds and and all other programs on that chanel were in English. On Saturday 2 1/2 Men on chanel 4 was in Spanish and chanel 17 had no sound. All following programs were in English.Today Sunday, only chanel 17 has no sound. I have another flat screen TV and all the programs are English so I know that it is that specific TV.
The language option is set to English. I have reset the the whole tv- no change. Any Ideas? [email protected]

    Thankyou for the reply. I have basic cable and do not hava a cable box so that can not be the cause. However my husband spent a couple of hours trying everything and as of now everything is working correctly. We have no idea what was wrong or what we did to fix it.

    Thank you again.

Try going into the television, and changing the audio setting to stereo, it sounds like it set to SAP (second audio program).

If you have cable or satellite, most likely the setting on that boox needs to be changed to english as default.

Why am I getting Bold and the Beautiful in Spanish? I want all English in every thing. This and one other channel is coming through in Spanish. How does that happen?

Hello, Brenda -

If you had your TV audio set to SAP and Spanish, then all TV programs would come on in Spanish, if that is an option for the programs. Note: The SAP language setting is through the Menu for the TV via the Audio options.

Instead, perhaps the TV channels where you are receiving TV programs in Spanish may just be Spanish-language TV channels/networks.

Best wishes.

I think that my TV soney braiva xbr has an issue with SAP but some ch. are in spanish some do not have sound How do i reset this tv?

Press MTS/SAP on the remote (under the number buttons) to go between the 3 options of STEREO or MONO or AUTO SAP. Not all channels will have SAP (secondary audio program). Selecting stereo should eliminate any secondary audio.

Use the cursor right to select Language.
Follow the instructions on screen.
Use the cursor up/down to select your preferred language
and press the OK key to confirm your selection.

This is assuming you have the factory remote. You may need to experiment a little if you do not understand any Spanish, but you should be able to get it back to English ok.

Go into the menu and under AUDIO and make sure that the sound is set to STEREO, and not SAP (second audio program). If you have a separate setting for SAP then shut it off.
