Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-27FS100 27" TV
I received a sony tv from a friend as a gift. it came without a user's manual and without a remote. i dont have any cable in my apartment. when i plug the tv in and try to watch tv on it, it's stuck on channel 3 (with a ton of snow). even if i press channel +/- it stays stuck on channel 3. can anyone tell me how i can get the basic channels to show up? i thought that i didnt need to have the tv connected to cable to get the basics (abc, nbc, etc). i tried going through the channel auto-set up and it scans through the channels but i still can't get anything. my vcr is hooked up to it and it works fine...
My friend, you need to hook up a signal source such as an antenna or cable . The channels wont come in and it will all depend on where you live and how close to a major city on what and how good you will get the stattions. then once an antennena is connected, do the auto programming again. Good Luck

How do you expect a picture, without any Signal input? Just get any Rabbit Ears Indoor Antenna. Ore, if u wanna first try out, just push a length of Electrical Wire approximately 3-4 feet long into the Antenna socket at the rear of the TV, and then do Auto search. You will be able to view a few local channels - tho a little grainy. If u are satisfied, good, otherwise, then get an antenna.

YOU HAVE A BAD TUNER OR RF INPUT. IF YOU CONNECT THE CABLE TO THE VCR AND THEN USE THE VIDEO OUTPUT OF THE VCR TO THE VIDEO INPUT OF THE TV YOU CAN USE THE TUNER IN THE VCR TO CHANGE CHANNELS.
