HELP! One day my set will power on and cycle through video 3, video 5, dvd, cable box, and sometimes the actual program I want to watch will show up. Other days I can not even turn the set on. No flashing lights, and most of the time the remote will not work the TV. Any ideas??

Re: Sony projection tv HELP!!
Initially, let us try a simple one; flick/snap with your finger nails any and all of the buttons on the front control panel of the TV unit. The ides is to unstuck any of the buttons. They maybe in a pressed position. Incidentally, any sudden change in the weather/temperature? Any rain lately? Condensation, dampness, humidity maybe playing with the rubber pads of the controls or with the electronics inside.
Alternately, you can try the hard reset; unplug from the mains for an extended period of time, say an hour or more.
Should none be corrective, pls post back the exact model number.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

1) Check if it happens with different video sources like Cable, Cable Box, DVD Player etc.
2) If it happens, check for the Flash Focus settings in the TV or convergence.
3) If are able to locate and still convergence occurs, perform the power reset by disconnecting the power cord from the wall outlet and connect it back.
4) If the issue occurs, your TV may require service
Hook up Composite / Component Monitor Out wire from receiver to TV video input because receiver will not change analog input into HDMI You need to connect receiver and TV through analog video terminals as above. Actually you are expecting that receiver will convert DVD player and Xbox analog video input into digital HDMI signal for TV and This is incorrect.
Yes , this sounds like the EPROM IC is failing or the crystal that keeps the frequency on the IC needs to be replaced , or even the buttons on the tv could be warped by the heat of the tv( if it is the buttons , then removing the control board from the plastic buttons will stop the random cycle and may make it so you can turn on the tv , but if not then it is the EPROM IC or crystal)
to check and see if the chip is messing up , hold down the menu button on the tv or vol up down and see if it stops cycling thru the video inputs
No sound on what? DVD & VHS, okay?
Need more information:
1. Where don't you get any sound from?
2. Are you using cable box, sat.,or.....? What?
3. If box what type?
4. ANT, VIDEO, COMP, HDMI or ECT. inputs.
If you are using a cable box there are some boxes that have volume controls on them, please check volume level.
Please clarify what source you are using & check all 'other' cables.
Good Luck, Day, Big Irish.
connect the RF lead from the wall to your cable box then out from that to your dvd then out from your dvd to your tv. now connect a scart lead from the cable box to AV 2 on the DVD then connect AV 1 on the DVD to your TV if you have a second scart on your tv connect that to the cable box. NOW on the DVD select AV2 now whatever is on the cable box will be recorded onto DVD/VCR. Put the DVD recorder into VCR mode and set it to auto tune all the Digital Video Broadcasts. You cannot physically tune the cable boxes own channels into the DVD via RF it has to be via a scart.
