Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-21CL10 21" TV

1 Answer

Sony Trinitron TV

Just a simple problem really. The channel number and time (time isn't set though) displays are forever present at the top right and top left of the TV respectively. Just wondering how to get rid of them because they are very frustrating when watching TV and playing PS2! I have lost the remote as this TV was purchased a long time, so I don't know where to start. Someone please help me, as it has been driving me crazy for years! Thanks.

    Wow, thanks everyone for such quick replies! I couldn't find any people I knew with Sony remotes remarkably so I ordered a cheap one off Amazon, and hope to have the problem sorted soon =D

  • sammathie Nov 10, 2008

    Ahhh I got the remote and got it up and running but it doesn't appear to have a display button so I still don't know how to get rid of the stupid time and channel number! This is so frustrating! Any ideas?

  • sammathie Nov 10, 2008

    Thats the one I bought. I'm unable to get you a photo right now but top 3 buttons are TV/AV, Mute and On/Off. A few other buttons but none appear to be working. I'm starting to realise that its probably because it's not exclusively a Sony Remote =[ If this is the case, could you suggest the cheapest one you can think of that I could get and would do the job? Thanks!

  • sammathie Nov 15, 2008

    Sorry to be such an incompetent idiot but I've now got the RM-W100 remote that you suggested but the purchase didn't come with instructions on how to synchronise the remote with the TV, do you know how? If so, could you tell me how please?

You need Sony TV Remote and press Display button on remote and On-Screen Display will disappear.

    Above said Remote is original / supplied part for your Sony TV KV-21CL10 and it doesn't require any synchronization to function.
    Just press Display button on remote so on-screen display will disappear.

Hi I have a l32wd12 r a TV and it will not turn on

If the clock is on then the unit is receiving power; maybe the external input feature (which tells the TV which outside source to display on the screen, e.g. cable TV, DVD player, VCR player, etc.) is not set to display the TV channels. On my Sony TV there is a button that displays TV setting options (e.g., Favorites, TV List, External inputs and settings). The external inputs function displays the options as video 1, video 2, etc., right up to video 6. My video 3 is for the VCR, video 4 is for the DVD, and video 5 is for the cable TV channels. If the TV is set for say video 3 and nothing is playing on the VCR, the screen will be dark (almost as though the TV is off). Your solution might be as simple as choosing the right external (video) input for the TV to receive the channel signals.

Why does my lg tv seem to be stuck on a zoom setting?

Find the Aspect ratio button on the TV remote. Press it a number of times to cycle through the options. Stop when the picture is the shape you want.

Have a read of your TV manual. Stuff like this is detailed in there.

Check the picture aspect settings in the Uverse set up menus. Make sure the option selected matches the shape of your TV.

Can a magnavox smart Tv surf the web?

Philips Magnavox has designed televisions offering a number of different features and options that provide users optimal viewing experience and facilitate ease of use.
One such feature found in certain models is known as Smart Surf.
Smart Surf

The Smart Surf feature allows the user to store previously viewed channels as a series of select favorites, and to surf between those channels by repeatedly pressing the "Surf" button on the television's remote control.
The user can also delete the channels stored in this group and add different ones at a later time.
Stored Channels, TVs
The maximum number of channels that can be saved in the Smart Surf feature varies by model. Some (including the 13MT143S and 20MS233S) allow five, some (TS2554C) allow eight, and some (MX2797B) up to 10.
This feature is found mainly on older CRT TVs, as the the channel search and selection options in LCD TVs and/or their connected digital cable/satellite set-top receiver boxes have made it unnecessary.
Select a channel, either by using the "CH+" or "CH-" buttons or entering the channel's number. Press "Surf" while the channel number is displayed and press the right arrow button to add that channel. Press "Surf" repeatedly to scan through the saved channels.
To remove a channel, press "Surf" and the right arrow key again while the channel number is displayed.

Surf the Web on Your TV
As the technology that brings us the Internet merges more and more with the technology that brings us traditional television content, we will find ourselves watching TV shows on the computer and watching Internet content on our TV sets.
There are several ways to get Internet on your TV, though most may not be as satisfying as actually using your computer to surf the Web.
Connect TV to Laptop as Second Monitor
Connect your TV and your laptop computer using an S-video cable.
Connect the audio using a component audio cable with red and white connectors.
If your laptop doesn't have component audio, use an adapter that transfers the signal from both cables into one connector, which will plug into the headphone jack on your laptop.

Choose the input mode on the TV that corresponds to the type of connection you are using. Press the monitor button on your laptop.
This is probably a combination of the shift key and one of the function keys.

Tweak the monitor connections under "Display Settings" if necessary.
Choose a low resolution for the TV, which should show up as a second monitor. Select "Advanced Options" in the Display Settings box and choose "generic TV" as the monitor type.

You should now have the option to see items on your TV.
The TV will either have the same icons on both the laptop screen and the TV, or you can choose "extend the desktop onto this monitor" in Display Settings, and then drag items to the TV from the laptop screen.
You will be able to see the Internet and control things using the controls on the laptop.

TV with Internet Capability

Connect your TV to the Internet according to the TV manufacturer's instructions.
TVs with this type of port include Panasonic VIERA, Sharp LC series and Panasonic TC-PS1 series.

Navigate the menu using the TV remote and following any instructions in the TV manual relating to using the Internet.
Select the desired content and watch it.

Be aware that this type of TV may only show Internet content provided by websites and companies that have partnered with the TV manufacturer for inclusion.

Internet-enabled Game Console

Connect the game console to the TV and ensure there is a wireless Internet connection available. Alternatively, connect an Ethernet cable directly to the game console.

Using the game controller, choose the Internet channel. You can surf using a menu or enter a website URL with a virtual keyboard, or you can attach a USB keyboard to the game console.

Results may vary and this will not be as satisfying as surfing the Internet using a computer, but some websites will work well and all should be accessible.

Set-top Box

Connect a set-top box, such as a Roku, Sony Bravia, or NetGear ITV2000 to your TV.

Make sure a high-speed Internet connection is available.
This may be accessed wirelessly or through an Ethernet cable connected to the set-top box.

Select from the menu to choose content. Be aware that this option, like the Internet TV option, may limit you to content from providers that partner with the box manufacturers, and that you may not be able to use the entire Internet.

We have the 27 inch 1080p (Model HSG 1075). We are with Suddenlink as our service provider who recently went to digital programming. However, we are now having problems with the channels display, which...

Hi - My name is Tina and I am with Suddenlink. Are you receiving your channels over the air (without a cable box)? If so, that is the way they are broadcast over the air in digital/high definition from the broadcasters and without converting them (with a cable box) there isn't anything that can be done to fix this issue. If you add a cable box to your set, then the box can convert the channels without the dashes. Plase feel free to contact me directly at tina-AT-suddenlink-DOT-com for further assistance. Thank you.

We have a Toshiba TV and DVR. Every time we watch a DVD and try to return to cable TV, we get "no video signal." How do you get back to cable tv?

My mother in Law asks this question all the time, first rule never buy a fancy TV for a christmas present for *********** in law because she will call you on your cell at all hours to fix her TV !!!

Seriously though how do you have your TV set up.

for example Cable box to DVR then DVR into TV

If this is the case
Although I am not familiar with the exact setting for your TV they are all practically the same. In this case make sure TV is on then right setting for example is it HDMI, AV1, AV2 or do you have a selct Tv channel either way you may have to use the channel up and down button for the Tv to put it on the right one or even the source button if there is on the remote - if you dont have a remote for your tv use the buttons on the Tv itself, make sure cable box is on.

Still not working - again make sure the Tv itself is on the right chanel as mentioned above. Also make sure the cable box is on. Now press the source or AV button on the DVR until it comes through on the TV. It may even be just a simple case of pressing the TV/Video button or AV button on the DVR remote if it has one or changing the channels on the DVR.

Sometimes electronic devices can be temperamental. My satelite box for example is a cheap one from Radio Shack. I often get sound only through the TV. If I turn the box off and back on though it works fine again.

They can be right pains in the neck these things. Basically all you need to do is find the correct order of modes that the Tv, video and cable box need to be in.

Setting digital time on elgin fh205 . need manual

The FH205 isn't the same as a PQS Monika, there are 3 buttons, the one in the lower right just lights up the small digital display, then there are ones on the top left, and bottom left, and a dial on the right center.

To set the digital display time, you simply change the mode to time with the bottom left button. Press and hold the top left until the seconds start to flash.
Use the bottom right button to set the time you want, using the top left to switch from seconds, to minutes, to hours (on a 12 hour display, if you need PM, keep cycling the hours until the small PM text appears to the right of the display). After hours will be 12/24 setting, then back to normal operating mode.
You can repeat the same steps above by switching to date view, and press-and-hold the top left button again, and set the month, day, and day-of-the-week.
The analog time is a simple matter of pulling the crown out and turning to the appropriate time.
