Suddenly, "No Signal" display when cable box/VCR Connected to UHF/VHF Jack

My KV-27FS13 color TV, with a cable box and Sony VCR connected to the UHF/VHF jack on the rear, suddenly has started displaying the yellow "No Signal" message when the TV is turned on. The red standby light flashes twice and goes off, then the "No Signal" appears. This just happened this evening after having had the TV on this morning and everything working perfectly.

Turning on the VCR and pressing the TV/Video button doesn't change anything. Still "No Signal".

Connecting this same cable box/VCR setup to the rear jacks on two of my other color TV's works fine; nothing wrong with the cable box or the VCR; everything plays and displays just fine.

The red, white and yellow A/V connections are working. I can hook up my camcorder and DVD, and those play just fine in their usual "Video 1" and "Video 2" settings.

    Forgot to mention. I bought this set in November 2001, and have had this cable box/VCR setup hooked up to it ever since.

    Thanks to a recommendation from a buddy, I found a TV repairman who makes house calls. $35 for the visit to diagnose the repair (a bum tuner), $200 to replace it. The total was less than half the price of a new 32" flat screen, and much, much less than what I would have paid for an extended warranty over all these years.

    TV works great, and I owe my buddy a dinner at his favorite restaurant. Thanks to everyone on fixya who helped.

Have a look at your manual below. If problem persists you need to call a tech to check if it can be repaired localy. If you have some experience remove cover and check the condition of electrolytic capacitors, resistors etc. at main board. You need also some special tools for replacing components. Good luck!!

Hi,

Initially, may I suggest that:

  • verify that the KV-27FS13 is tuned to either channel 3 or 4 with the cable box and Sony VCR connected to the UHF/VHF jack;
  • play a known good VHS tape and determine if the taped movie would display on the TV;
  • verify if the Sony VCR has a VTR button and is pressed or activated.
Depending on the results of the above checks, probable faults could be:
  • defective tuner block/assy of the KV-27FS13;
  • defective rear jack of the KV-27FS13.
A temporary workaround other than repair would be:
  • connect the Sony VCR to the KV-27FS13 using Video (1 or 2) A/V INput (from the Sony VCR A/V OUTput).
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

How long have you owned the tv? You have two options though your best bet is to locate your nearest authorized service center to have the tv repaired.
Thanks,

How to add an Exterior Speaker to Sony KV-13M10


Welcome to FixYa!

To add an exterior speaker to Sony KV-13M10, you have to have an AMPLIFIER.
  • At the back of your TV you will be able to see 3 RCA output namely = VHF/UHF, Audio and Video.
  • Use an RCA cable and connect to the Audio output.
  • At the back of your amplifier, connect the other end of the RCA cable to an RCA input labeled Audio - L (left, usually in white color).
  • Your speaker should be connected to your amplifier labeled output or audio out. The connection type depends on the make and model of your amplifier. The speaker wires usually come in red and black color. red goes to red, black goes to white.

A simple diagram will look like this:

TV audio out -------------> amplifier audio in (left, white color) amplifier audio out (left, white color) -----------> speaker (black wire) amplifier audio out (right, red color) ------------> speaker (red wire)

Thank you for using FixYa.
Have a great day.

I accidently knocked my satallite box down, which pulled out and broke off the VHF/UHF jack. Is this something that would be expensive to fix, or is it something I can fix myself?


The repair to replace the RF connector can be a long and complicated one. You should probably take this to a TV tech for repair. Or in another case, if you have a video one or a video two connection, apply RCA cords from the satellite box to the TV. Save a the price of a repair. Thanks for asking and give me a few hands!

I have a sony trinitron XBR and the PIP won't turn off. Any help is greatly appreciated.


Please make sure that one input is connected to the UHF/VHF port of the TV and other is connected to composite or component ports. If you have connected likewise, please perform the steps below:
  1. Ensure the video source is turned on.
  2. Ensure the video source is connected to an available VIDEO input jack on the back of the television. IMPORTANT: The VIDEO 5 input cannot be used to view a program in the PIP window.
  3. On the television remote control, press the TV FUNCTION button.
  4. On the television remote control, in the PIP section, press the TV/VIDEO button to select the appropriate video input for the PIP window.
  5. If the issue is not resolved, connect the Audio/Video (A/V) cable from the video source to a different VIDEO input jack on the television.
  6. On the television remote control, in the PIP section, press the TV/VIDEO button to select the appropriate video input for the PIP window.
  7. If the issue is not resolved, replace the A/V cable.

I get no channels wen i plug in my cable wire into the cable jack


Hello,

First, I would change the cable that comes from the wall to the TV.
Plug the cable into the cable port, then go into the menu of the TV. Go to the channel setting and go down to where it says "CABLE YES/NO"and change it to cable YES. Then try to re-autoprogram it.

If there are no channels found after that, then you may have an issue with the tuner.
