Question about Sony KV-20FV12 20" TV

Open Question

Not sure if this TV is digital ready KV32S42

With the digital conversion fast approaching, I have no idea if this set is digital ready. I connected a converter to the set, ran the setup and all I received was a "no signal" display and for a brief moment one very pixled channel.

SOURCE: 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)

Sony tv model KV32S42 picture taking forever to come in


Speaking as a retired SONY dealer, the short answer is probably yes. There are some repairs an authorized SONY repair center can do but if the tube is displaying a soft picture, it may not be wise to spend a couple hundred on repairs when a new medium quality TV is three hundred to five hundred for a SONY. I applaud your devotion to a set that has served you well.

Durabrand DU1901 digital ready?


The digital Cable conversion only effects those who still get their TV channels through an antenna or rabbit ears. If you get it through a cable provided like Comcast, you SHOULD be fine. For more information, look at the FCC website.

Happy viewing :)

My ge tv digital ready?


Your TV is NOT digital ready. IF you do not have cable or satellite, you will need a converter box. If you do have cable or satellite you have nothing to do or worry about as the cable or satellite box will automatically do the conversion for you. Hope this helps

Does my TV have a digital tuner?


If your portable set was made before March 1, 2007, then it almost certainly does not have a digital tuner and would require a converter box. (After that date, the FCC requires all TV's to have the digital tuning.)

Hi! Simple question; answer hard to find. Does a Sylvania 6520FDF (20" color TV/DVD, purchased new in late 2006 or early 2007) need a digital converter box? Thanks for any assistance. Bruce


BRUCETYRE::
unless the information that comes with the tv says it is digital ready, NO!! and you will need a converter box.The reason is that for almost two years before the conversion, the /tv people knew what was going to happen and they were getting rid of the 'old' stock.The TV must say it is digital ready.
p.s. I looked it up for you...SORRY!!
"" The manufacturer has informed us that this model has been discontinued. However, it might still be available for sale.""
p.s.s. Now I know for sure that it is not digital ready...get the converter box.
