Sony FD Trinitron WEGA TV Model Number KD27FS170 digital tuner problem

Tuner doesn't detect any digital channels, but I can receive them with a converter. Assuming the digital tuner is defective, can I safely replace it myself? I'm pretty handy, but concerned about working with electronics. Also, would tuner #859859370 from www.sony.com/dapc be the correct replacement?

    You're absolutely right, dustinjules. I did that a few weeks ago after posting this question, and it solved the problem. (Neither Sony nor the TV repairman thought of it!) Now I'm working on connecting my analog VCR to the converter and TV so I can record one (digital) program while watching another. No success so far.

    Same problem, only the ATSC tuner doesn't receive analog or digital signals. The VHF/UHF tuner receives analog signals. I think I have a bad ATSC tuner because it's not getting the analog signals and it should. What part do I need to replace the ATSC tuner? Is there much to this (remove old and plug in new or sauter required to fix?)

    Yeah i've never gotten a signal even in the atsc. I like sony but they must have messed up on this model

I have the same TV and was unable to get the digital channels until today. I think you need to connect your antenna on the back of the TV to the ATSC jack. If you have had it connected to the VHF/UHF jack, it won't detect the digital signals. Once you have the antenna connected to the ATSC jack just Auto Program your TV and you'll find all the digital channels in your area. Good luck!

The RF amplifier in the tuner has been damaged. You will need to replace the tuner. A suitable replacement tuner from a wrecked Sony tv would be you cheapest option.

Do I need a converter box for a Sony KD-27FS170?


When a TV hasn't digital tuner, it's necessary to add it a digital to analog channels converter box, but your TV already has digital tuner, you can switch between digital and analog tuning by pressing the digital/analog botton on the remote control.

Hi, If you have an outside antenna you will need a converter box as this tv has an NTSC tuner which is analog.

Sony FD Trinitron WEGA TV Model Number KD27FS170 volume problem


I had the same problem with the volume in digital mode and found the answer here: http://www.justanswer.com/questions/1m0ln-sony-fd-trinitron-wega-tv

The actual solution is towards the bottom of the post and hard to read through, so I simplified the instructions below:

On your remote control (with tv off)
1. press Display, channel 5, Volume Up and then Power
this brings up the service mode (you will see some green text on your screen)
2. Press channel 2 to scroll through options until you see "Micro" in the upper left of your screen
(channel 2 cycles up through the options, channel 5 cycles down)
3. Press channel 1 to scroll through suboptions until you see "DIOF" appear under "Micro"
(channel 1 cycles up through the suboptions, channel 4 cycles down)
4. Press channel six until the default value (12:60) changes to 12:40
(channel 3 increases the value, channel 6 decreases the value)
5. Once the value has been changed to 12:40, press Muting and you should see red text in the upper right hand corner that says "Write"
6. Simply turn the power off and back on for the change to take effect. Your volume problems should now be fixed.

Digital tuner?


Good question, Mike. I wondered about my fs210 model, too, and I found the answer at a Sony tech-support site.

1. Go to: http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/select-system.pl?DIRECTOR=DOCS
2. Enter your TV's model number, which, in this case, is: kv-32fs100 (and then click on Continue).
3. At the resulting page, under "Support by Type" in the left margin, click on "News & Alerts."
4. At the next page, click on: 04/02/2008: Critical: Is my Sony® television ready for the Digital TV (DTV) transition?
5. Your TV and mine are analog, but scroll down the page mentioned in #4, above, to see all of your options.

Consumers can determine whether any Sony TV is digital, just by entering the model number and following the steps listed above. ~ Kind regards, Gilda M. (replied 1/23/09)

Tuner


Yes, you will need the converter box in order to view the digital channels if you are receiving off the air signals but if you have cable or satellite TV, you might not needed. You can click here to know the specs of your TV, it has an analog tuner and not a digital.

No signal


Check is RF Antena/ Cable connected? If yes, go to TV Menu and select Auto-Program. TV will start tuning and search all available channels on cable/ on-air. If there is no channel reception, TV has defective Tuner. If you know basic electronics knowledge, replace the Tuner or contact nearest Sony repair shop.

Channel Programming


Is this an U.S. made tv? or are you using a universal Sony purchased outside the U.S. If it was made here, then you probably have a bad tuner.

TV's tuner will not recieve all channels


Since you are not using a set top box, you will probably only get channels up into the 70's, if available in your town, as most channels above this are digital, which analog cannot convert.  As for the digital tuner, I have the same problen.  It will not pick up any digital channels.  Because of this, I have had to get a digital box(why in the hell should I have a digital tuner?) to recieve digital channels.  I have the same tv you have, except a standard def.  If you ever find out why your digital tuner won't work, I'd love to know myself.  good luck, hope this helps.
