Question about Sony FD Trinitron KV-28FQ75 28" TV

TV keeps on trying to auto tune

My TV has just started to repeatedly ask if I want to start automatic tuning. There is still a signal coming in, be it via the aerial or the Sky Scart lead. I have tried saying no and then removing the menu, or saying yes and going through the automatic tuning process. Either way after 5-10 minutes, sometimes even less, the big Sony logo comes up and then it asks about tuning again, over the top of the picture. Any ideas?

Re: TV keeps on trying to auto tune

I would try first unplugging the set for about 30 seconds to see if that clears up the problem. If not, then it could be anything from a bad connection or component inside the set, and with it being made by a 4 letter word company, pitch it and get a different brand set. Check out before plunking down the money on another model first. May save some headaches later.

Tv out of foucs

These procedures are from the owners manual, go into menu and then picture quality and then: Convergence The Convergence feature lets you adjust the TV’s three tubes. When the TV tubes’ images are precisely aligned, they create the color images you see on the screen. Over time, the picture can drift out of alignment (this is normal). If your picture seems fuzzy or has a yellow tint, using Convergence could correct this misalignment. Only one convergence is needed for all inputs, regardless of the signal format. Note: Make sure the TV has been on for at least 30 minutes (TV needs to warm up for best results) before starting Auto Converge or Red/Blue Centering. When you select the Convergence feature, a submenu appears with three options: Auto Converge Automatically aligns the projection lenses to self-correct color images. You’ll see flashing squares of color dance across the screen (this is normal). Note: After performing auto convergence, use the Blue Centering and Red Centering menus to fine tune convergence in the center of the screen, if necessary. Blue Centering Aligns the blue and green images to fine-tune the picture. Red Centering Aligns the red and green images to fine-tune the picture. Note: The ability to change channels is disabled when adjusting the convergence options. The TV must be tuned to a usable signal to converge the picture.
