When I turn the TV on I am not able to change to other stations. I have tried doing it with remote and also the buttons on the T.V. It just stays on one channel. I can turn the volume up and down and thats it. When I go to settings I can only set language, nothing else. thanks Ron
It was in the guide plus set up that I needed to redo. When I was originally using it I had it setup to be connected to cable box, but when we moved it into the other room when we got the new tv we recieved, there wasnt a cable box in there. I didnt know that I just need to reset the menus to delete it being connected to cable box and it worked. I hope this will help someone else if this problem occurs with their TV. Ron

U can't get to channels 3 or 4 without a remote.Ur getting stuck on these particular channels 26,35 and 19 mean the last owner put these channels on the tv memory.Try website like Remotes.com to buy an exact remote or very close to the original,if u want make use of this tv.
due to the long time the buttons were not used, they tend to get stuck and this causes channels eighter to stay in one station or continou scanning. it could be resolved by spraying WD40 on the buttons and press it many times then dry it before operating the unit.
Well there is still a problem with the TV. I found that by unplugging the power cable that the digital channels worked. But, when I turned the TV on today the problem had returned, I had to take out the power cable again!
Perhaps you can try what I do when my KV24FV300 runs through channels and will not stop. Hard to watch and remote will not work. Nothing works but on and off from set.
Sony Says: Take all batteries out of ALL remotes that you use in any way for that set, VCR, etc. ALL batteries out. Turn TV off at set. Unplug TV. Wait at least 15 minutes then replace all batteries in ALL remotes. Plug TV back in and turn TV on from set.
Maybe, just maybe it will work. If it does not work why not call Sony, they always say that cannot happen but they have a solution for it.
Sounds like it is changing to another video mode that has no input so the screen is blue. On many tv's the channel buttons also act as video input button. This should happen with the buttons on the tv. If you are using the the remote I am not sure why it is acting like a video input button. Try changing video to tv with one and changing the stations with the other. I take it you are watching antenna tv and not using cable box or satellite. If this does not work and you have old vcr just use it as a tuner to change your channels.
It all depends on what and how the cable box is connected . Do you have an outside or inside antenna connected? If you have a cable box , why would you want to go to another station on your tv? Does the cable box have an rf output that connects to the tv through he antenna input on the back of the set? If so the tv should stay on a station to recive the stations thru the cable box. Didnt the cable tech explain how to use the system?? If you dont understand how to use the cable you should, for sure call the companey, and see if they can explain how they hooked up your sysytem as theres many many ways to do this. If you have the owners manual what im about to explain is in there too. On the tv remote theres a button called menu, press it once. Use the up and down arrows to scroon down and highlight the setup . press the ok or enter buttonpress the right language,then search for channels. When this is over then exit out of the menu, and try switching channels. If you still dont have any channels you gonna have to find out whats connected to your rf input as channels wont come in if theres not the right source connected. GOOD LUCK
Have you checked to see if any of the front panel buttons are depressed and stuck??? this is a big problem these days?? I have also found the infared remote sensor to be bad on some sets that do crazy things all by them selfs.. A funny storry once i had was a customer called me after her mother called some goast finders as her maggy projection set would go on all by itself andf the channels would change and the volume would go up and down all by its self. funny thing I had a set just like thast in the shop at the time with the same problem and I scoped out the output pulse from the infared reciver on the set and that was putting out noise on the data line and caused the set to eratacly do all sorts of weird stuff. get the point?? its a stck button or the remote sensor is bad.
