Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KD-27FS170 TV

1 Answer

Set-up screen keeps popping up

The Set-up screen asking if I want to Auto-Program keeps poping up on the screen in the middle of a show. If I hit the Channel up button to Yes auto-program it stops the auto-program preocess in the middle adn I get all snow, Hit + or + a couple of times adn the pix comes back but the screen pops up again in a few minutes or less. If I hit channel down to exit it comes back even faster. I don't want to throw it out as the pix is still very good, but this is real annoying.

Re: set-up screen keeps popping up

This might not be a solution but it is a suggestion,your set by now has many loose conections this is as true as your name Less,I would suggest to go in looking for loose conections and overheated ares,while you are looking check the horizontal driver transformer and make sure all 4 legs are solid,this is only as a preventive maintenace,as far as the reason why is doing what is doing I got a feeling you will find an intermitant conection.If you are not familiar with tv service be safe and call for assistance.It should not be expensive.

My tv's channels are only up to ch 35, and we have cable tv connection. I cant utilize my cable connection cause my tv's only programmed up to 35. do we have a way to program it to go up to more than 35?...

I assume you have analog cable TV service and no cable box. Press MENU button on your TV remote. Go over to CHANNEL SETUP. There are four arrow buttons and a button in the middle of the arrow buttons on the TV remote control. Use these arrow buttons to go up, down, left and right. Use the button in the center to select. TV On-screen menu has Video, then Audio, then Channel Setup.

Cable can be set to ON or OFF, you want to set it ON to get cable channels.
Go down to AUTO PROGRAM and select it, press button in the center of arrow keys.
A short delay while available channels are searched so be patient. After Auto Program finishes, press MENU to exit. You can perform Auto Program whenever required.

You can also add or skip channels manually. You will discover more options in the TVs menus.

A black box keeps popping up in the middle of my tv screen and i have to hit a button for it to go away and it does it every few sec. and then will stop and wont do it for a while

The text function can come from one of two places;
This first is in the closed caption section of the TV set itself;

The second is (if you are using a Cable or Sat box) from a box providing signal to the set!

Most people think of the the problem just being in the TV when it can come from a box providing signal to the set.

Persistent menu on screen pop ups

I just had a similar problem, and it turned out that one of the little rubber buttons was pushed down and had gotten stuck under the plastic housing just enough to create contact, but hardly enough to notice at first glance.
