Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-34HS420 34" TV

1 Answer

Poor cable connection

I have a Sony K?-32? Trinitron 16:9 tv I purchased about 8-9 years ago in Hong Kong. The cable connection is a type of RCA connection that is standard in Hong Kong but requires an adaptor to attach a North American threaded fitting. I find my reception from cable is poorer than another TV in the house and I always have to reposition (jiggle) the connection to clear reception (snow?). Even at best reception picture and colours are not as clear and sharp as other TV's in house. Picture from DVD player is much better with some DVD's producing an excellent (although not as good when new, I think)picture. Can the connection be changed to North American type? Is this something I can do at home? Other suggestions to improve reception? Thank you.

How do I connect roku 2xs to sony trinitron tv

If your Tv does not have the HDMI port you can use the RCA cables. If your Tv does not have the RCA video/audio ports you will need an adapter from Radio Shack for hooking up a video camera to a cable Tv. This adapter will allow you to hook the Roku to the adapter with the RCA cables, then the adapter hooks to the Tv with a cable just like a cable box. This adapter is also a pass through for other devices like a cable box and or another DVD player. Hope this helps FixYa up.

No problem, wondering if I'm able to connect this TV to my laptop to connect to the internet and if so what do I need to do this.

Yes, you should be able to. You will need to buy a $20 adapter. Sewell Direct sells them, also They are called VGA to RCA composite video converter. This will convert your laptop's VGA output to RCA composite video for connection to your TV yellow video input. Connect an audio cable from laptop's earphone output to the TV's RCA audio inputs (white and red) using a 3.5mm to RCA adapter cable available at Radio Shack for about $10. This will work. You can see everything that the laptop displays on the TV. You can even hookup a VCR to record it all.

My sony trinitron wega says no signal when I connect the coaxial cable.

Your Sony has several varieties of possible connections.
They include,
  • HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface)
  • Component video
  • Composite video
  • RF/Coaxial
Make sure that the appropriate choice with in the menu "SETUP" option matches the connection at the rear.
If this is done correctly and you still have now picture it may be an issue with the cable or the connector on the end. Check the tip to make sure that there is between 1/8 to 1/4 inch of the internal wire past the end of the connector.
If this looks ok try a different hook up such as the "S-VIDEO" cable and seperate left and right audio "RCA" cable.
If you have no image after trying one of the other connection types then the issue may be with the TV itself which would require servicing.
Hope this helps

If your set has a humming noise when connecting the cable, call your cable company. There is a ground issue. This can also be a safety issue.

If your signal is PAL, and your TV is NTSC only, you will have to replace the TV with a PAL one in order to properly view the programs.

Sony 32" trinitron kv=32fs16 tv problem.

I had the same problem 3 years ago. I called in a Sony tech and he said this was a common problem with this model. He replaced several resistors and resoldered several "Coaled Solder" connections. The repair ran $187 but the set has run great ever since!
