Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-36FS120 36" TV

1 Answer

Displaying TV Channel Numbers clearly

My elderly father (98), eyesite is not so good now. He simply cannot see the TV channel number, displayed electronically in the upper right hand corner of his TV set (Sony), most of the time. Like I said it is his eyes, not the TV set....which is clear for the rest of us.
Is there any device I can purchase to assist him when viewing channel numbers?

Hello jdillion,

I do not believe that such a device exists, however I do have some options for you:

1) get a magnifying window to put in the corner where the number is to magnify that section for your father.

2) Have TV repair shop install a signal to voice converter to take the number generated signal and convert it to a voice so that way the changing of the channel will be heard as a voice as opposed to a number.

3) Have the number geometry changed by a TV repair shop with the ability to reprogram the EEPROM that controls the number generation circuit.


I hope these suggestions give you some idea of what is possible.

Thank you,

Can't change the channels on my tv. The channel numbers aren't even coming up on the screen


Does that mean the buttons on the TV do not change the channels? Maybe the batteries are depleted in the remote, which would prevent the displaying of channel numbers;

Just go to your TV settings and just do a full reinstall ,like the day you brought your TV ,below is from the web site your tv will work hope this will help.
The Freeview TV guide is being updated on Wednesday, 3 September 2014 to create extra capacity for new services. As a result, Children's and News channels will move to new channel numbers.
• The Children's genre will move from channel numbers in the 70s to start at 120
• The News genre will move from channel numbers in the 80s to start at 130
To update their guide viewers simply need to retune their Freeview TVs and digital recorders or boxes where equipment does not pick up the changes automatically. On-screen messages will prompt viewers to retune late afternoon 3 September 2014 onwards.
Viewers who don't retune will not lose channels - services will remain accessible at their old numbers. However, Digital UK and Freeview recommend viewers retune from time-to-time to ensure they have access to all available services in their area.

Channel numbers missing


local channels are usually below a channel 1000. they are always on same assigned channel. If your cable box or tv has it, it has option to not display channels with no service on them. you can't reassign the channel numbers. they are channels but not being displayed.

Channel display for Sony WEGA KV32FS100 will not turn off


Most all Sony models use the same programming for the remotes. Borrow a Sony remote and push the display to turn it off.

Sharp 32'' tv -no raster showing channel numbers only


since you have sound and display it's not the hivoltage. You're electron guns are not being turned on. Most likely the IC which biases the guns or the IC which contains the biasing resistors.

Tv will not change channels


Sounds like an eeprom problem or a microprocessor problem??? Also make sure the tv didnt lose its channel memory by reprogramming the channels feature in the menu. Good Luck
