Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-27FS100 27" TV

Initial Set up image

Recently the Initial Set up window began coming onto the screen. I went through the set up process, but after going through the auto set-up process, the Initial setup window repeatedly comes back. I have reset the TV to factory setup, unplugged the set for a period of time, always going through the initial setup program, but it seems to return on a regular basis. Was wondering if this might be an indication that a service call is needed, a problem someone else has experienced, or something more serious. Thanks for a response.

Re: Initial Set up image

I am having this same problem. It seemed to clear up on its own at first, but it has since returned. It seems to occur most often after the TV has been on for a couple of hours. I contacted Sony Tech cupport and they recommend having the set serviced. I haven't yet, since it seemed to "fix itself," but now that the issue has resurfaced I'm likely to take it in unless someone has a suggestion as to what is causing it, and how to resolve it.

Did attatching HD Antenna fry my HDTV?

"the screen is nearly constantly with the exceptions of..." What does that mean?
If your antenna has a power supply it may have malfunctioned and fried your TV's tuner. Forty inch flat screens go for about $400 and up these days.
It could also be a coincidence, that the TV was expiring just when you hooked the antenna up.

I have a sylvania srt2319 tv which has never had any problems. just recently we got directv and they put the dvr box into the antenna hook up in the back. now the tv keeps going back and forth to a thin...

Your TV has bad solder connections at the set's verical output integrated circuit. It's very common for these connections to go bad because of heat from the part. When the technician moved the set around to hook up your new box, it may have jarred the connections enough to finally cause the existing problem to become more obvious, but he didn't cause the problem. Your set would probably be doing this anyway before long. The good news is that it's just a simple fix. Resoldering the connections should restore normal operation.

Check your color wheel. There is a DIY guide for replacing the color wheel. Mine did the same thing yours is and my color wheel was all busted up. Unfortunately after replacing the color wheel my set continues to do the same thing, but this could mean I need to replace the ballast as well.

Sony Trinitron Tv

Dear sammy5,
Stop by any TV repair shop in your area, and ask to borrow a used original Sony remote, they may require a small deposit; access the menu, perform your set up, then return it. Or you could buy a universal Sony remote from Walmart that should work just fine, for about. $7.00.

Hope this helps.

Picture shifted and ghost image

Try using an input other than the tuner. I.e a DVD player or game system on the front inputs. If the picture looks OK on the other input, your tuner is damaged and will need replaced, if it looks bad also, try unplugging the TV for 5 minutes and then go through the setup process in the menus. If this fails seek a repair shop.

You have a button stuck either on the set itself or on the remote. Stargazer
