Question about Sony Televison & Video

1 Answer

Two TVs go on with one remote

Have two Sony TVs one above the other in a cabinet. One is a new LCD flat panel,other is a conventional tube set about 8 years old. Both remotes are on the same frequency--they are both Sony. So when I want to turn on the lower screen LCD, the upper TV goes on too. The remotes don't have provsions for multiple frequencies that I can see. Any ideas? I would say the sensors are about 30 inches apart.

SOURCE: Sony remote control conflict

As Sony has same remote frequency for its TVs so option is left to unplug that tv which you don't want to power up or put piece of paper tape on front of remote sensor in tv and make it blind for IR waves.
No way to set both tv on different remote frequencies.

SOURCE: Toshiba TV Model No.

As you already an experienced tech, picture rolling top to bottom happens in two conditions, either video signal level is weak/ less than standard or video signal is missing vertical sync signal.
Please check does picture roll fast in all inputs of tv?
If yes, then video processor seems bad that is mounted on main board and main board will be replaced and if any specific input gives rolling picture and other input is fine then check bad input's buffer parts like chip resistors, chip capacitors and buffer transistors that might be causing low video signal level.
Hope these info will help you.

Why does the picture only fill the screen if I zoom in?

Hi Anonymous,
Please use the P SIZE key on the remote control and choose the picture of your liking. It will not be as we are used to see on the conventional Picture Tube TVs.

How to control my cable box with the tv control

refer to your TVs owners manual. You will find codes for common set top boxes there. all the new TV remotes are universal. If you see "cable" or "cbl" button on remote, you will be able to do so. Worst case scenario: you need to buy universal remote or use your cable box's remote to control basic functions on TV. Codes for TVs are included with cable box's remote control. Or, you can call your provider and ask for "Sony Bravia"codes. If you have a satellite box, codes are supplied right inside "setup" menu of the box.
Good luck,

I am looking for the Sky remote code for a Sony KDL-40V2000 TV can you please help.


Sky don't have a specific code listed for this model yet, so the first thing to do is try the Generic Sony codes first. These are:

1679, 1533, 0678, 0681

These codes are for a "Rev 8" Sky remote. If the above codes don't work or you need further assistance, please post back and I will investigate further. When posting back, please state which Sky remote version you have and whether it is also Standard Sky, Sky+ or Sky HD. The version number can be found on a sticker inside the battery compartment. RC1600/00 is the old original. Newer remotes will also have either "Rev 4", "Rev 6" or "Rev 8" on the sticker.

Please note that Sky remotes wont work with all TVs. I've been informed that a new revision of the Sky remote is due soon but I have been unable to verify this.

Hope this helps. Please post back with the information requested above if you need further assistance.

There is a flashing red light on the bottom of the tv, and it only turns on for a second then turns itself back

Then the problem is in the main power supply section and will need to be analysed by a technician; if you can find one for conventional TVs in your area. We are becoming rare.
If the set had been otherwise OK before this failure, I would recommend having it repaired since it will probably outlast any new flat panel set you might buy, they are not very reliable and service for them is expensive.
You can check for yourself by doing a search here at Fixya on 'LCD TV' and you will see a variety of makes and models with problems, many of them only a year or two old.

Programing Remote

Most Polaroid flat-screen TVs won't program to the Uverse remotes. Try buying a different universal remote that shows coding for both Uverse and Polaroid.

LCD Durability?

The answer is Yes definately to you question. The reason being is easy. The image cannot be burnt into the phospor of the LCD SET because it is "Liquid crystal Display which is backlit and is very durable. Just look at all the laptops out there and how reliable they are. All LCD. Also lighter, but dimmer then Plasma. I hope this helps you and your parents for some clairification. Good luck gaming. And have fun... Jay the GURU
