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

1 Answer

Sony 34HS420 The buttons on the television suddenly stopped working. For example, the channel up/down and the volume up/down does not work. Only thing I could think of is that when I moved the TV a few inches to the side to look at the wires for a receiver issue-it may have disabled these buttons. TV is 1.75 years old-which is out of warantee. Have you heard of this problem before? Would you recommend that i get a repair person to come in? Thanks for your help.

Re: Sony 34HS420

This happens to a lot of remote controls. The buttons used the most of the first to go. The oils from your fingures get in unter the botton causing a bad connection with the sensors. The only solution is to get another remote.

Volume is gone (except for a clicking noise)

Check whether the mute function is ON or not. If not, the muting section circuit inside has the fault.

Pre-set message in a continuous loop on tv. Can not get it to stop. Maganavox Model No.: 25TRC10101

Try holding the channel up and volume down buttons together on the front of the set until the set turns off. When you turn it back on it should be normal. If channel up and volume down doesn't work try channel down and volume up. One of the two should do it. This demo mode was for in store demonstration. Thanks

I was able to program my Comcast remote to control the volume of my tv, but was unable to get it to change channels. Is there something else that I should do?

Controlling the TV power and volume is probably all you'll be able to do with that control. The Comcast remotes are meant to be used with their converter boxes, and normally people want to change channels on the box while the TV stays on the box output channel (usually 3, sometimes 4). The remote's channel up and down buttons and number keypad only send out the codes recognized by the converter box. You'll need to fall back to the TV remote if you want to control more than power and volume.

Why does my RCA TV cycle through channels on its own?

this is the same type of problem happening with other rca models and I know it is the EPROM CHIP but why this is failing is either because of design flaw , dirty enviroment that they were made in , to much voltage or current to the chip or too much of a draw from the chip causing it to fail . Or even a random frequency from the IR sensor or its circut I'm still investigating and testing.
leave the tv unplugged for at least 3 weeks durring this time resolder any solder that don't look good , I did this and it lasted for about 6 months(always plugged in to the wall) before it started doing it again. model # 27v412t

I just found a solution elsewhere on this site...
In order to make the Demo Mode stop, you should press Volume Up and Channel Up together, and hold for four seconds. This worked for my mom's tv, I hope it works for you, mooone (and everyone else, too).
