Question about Sony KV-35S42 35" TV

1 Answer

TV won't "talk" with satellite cable

My free, used Trinitron was turned on by pressing Power button, then connected to power outlet and satellite cable. (No VCR or DVD connected.) Set came on easily, with full picture and sound. Undertook Auto-programming of stations, starting with Channel 1 up to Channel 125. Picture and sound still fine.

TV was turned off by pressing Power. Later, when TV again turned on by pressing Power button, picture was scrambled (lots of lines like an unused station), and only sound was buzzing. Undertook Auto-programming of stations, starting with Channel 1 up to Channel 125. Didn't work. Turned off TV set.

Purchased universal remote from Best Buy. Turned on TV set and programed in Sony code. Auto-programming didn't work, again. Still only buzzing sound and no picture.

Need to know how to get picture and sound, as well as auto-programming of channels completed.

Try to see if you have 5volts for your EEPROM. If the voltage is normal try to replace your EEPROM or try to reprogram it. Your EEPROM is corrupted so that's why it will not store data.

Color recently changed and I cannot get it adjusted properly. Picture goes in and out.


Please do the following steps:

  1. Turn on the television.
  2. Please wait approximately 40 seconds for your TV to completely start up.
  3. On the TV remote control, press and hold the UP ARROW button.
  4. While holding the UP ARROW button, press and release the POWER button on the TV set. (The button may be on the front, top or side of the TV.) NOTE: The TV may turn off and then back on.
  5. Release the UP ARROW button.
If the issue does not resolve, please follow these steps:

  1. Turn off the television. IMPORTANT: For a projection television that uses an internal lamp, wait 5 minutes after turning off the television to allow the lamp to cool before continuing with the following steps.
  2. Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
  3. Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
  4. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet. NOTE: If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.
  5. Turn on the television.

Before we start taking things apart, lets try your simple remove power plug routine and power system back up. Also, please try your unit on a few different channels to see if your problem continues on each channel. Your Main Board, Power Board, T-Control Board are suspected problems at this time. Press and hold the power button for about 15 seconds, the unit should power down by itself after you have powered it on. If it does not, then do not be concerned. Let me know if the problem continues. The firstlink below will bring you directly to the troubleshooting guide if you need to continue forward with the same error.

Lets focus on the external portion of the TV set first (95 percent of all TV problems are related to things EXTERNAL To the tv itself) Check the physical CONNECTION of all cables by removing each wire bare or RCA and reinstalling it (Each power cable as well), once you have removed one cable, check it for fraying, and if it is already bare, splice a new fresh connection for it. 5. Check to make sure there are NO OTHER uneeded radios, system nearby. these systems, when powered on, will cause electromagnetic interference and prevent more than just severe tv interference SURGE PROTECTOR Surge protectors account for more than 75 percent of electric faults to stereo equipment. Lets start with your AC Wall outlet. It is standard in america that 220 Volts from out of these outlets. This implies that each device will be using 220 Volts (From within that grid zone). If anything including an alarm clock is plugged into any AC outlet socket in the vicinity of the stereo equipment/TV, it will cause electric outage, and prevent electronics from even turning on! Your TV needs dedicated electric power. If your TV is located in the living room then unplug everything else in the living room. Lets plug the TV set into a Dedicated socket. Check all light switches to ensure that power is on for that outlet. Check the TV cable for Fraying both on the ac wall end and where it plugs into the TV. Check all GFCI outlets to ensure that all red reset buttons are pushed in, check the circuit breakers for proper connection and they are turned on. Now, lets try the TV set without it connected to any cable services, vcr, dvd, stereo system, etc. Please respond if we have found a solution.

When troubleshooting these units, there are always several variables to consider. First check to see what last occurred with the unit such as did the children play video games, did the electricity go out due to bad weather. You may see that there are many possibilities but let's focus on what occurred last to the unit. Once we determine what happened last, we may isolate the actual cause of the problem. The actual cause may be associated with projection issues, older versions (Picture tube), interference from devices located nearby, and even a radio turned on and located really close to your unit. This is normally known as electromagnetic interference to electronics and is very common with the error you have provided today. Please continue to look for anything EXTERNAL to the unit before looking at the internal components. I have been working on these a long time so feel free to follow up with me.

Hello

In time as the Sony Trinitron ages it begins to have power issues. While this can be true of most tube televisions it's the rate and severity at which this happens to Trinitrons that makes it particularly of note. Many Trinitron owners have complained of the Trinitron set turning itself off randomly and frequently. Some sets have failed to stay on for longer than a few minutes at a time. Eventually some sets will not turn on at all. These problems grow more severe with age.

Check the power cable running from the Sony Trinitron 32. Make sure the cable is completely inserted into the power connection on the rear of the TV as well as the local power outlet.

Disconnect the power cable from the electrical outlet, then plug it into a different connection. It is possible to electrical outlet has died, forcing you to obtain a power current from a different source.

Check the cable connection running from the cable/satellite receiver or VCR. If the TV is on but no picture is on the screen, the problem is most likely due to a connection issue.

Power off the cable/satellite receiver, then press the "Video" button on the remote control to switch the Trinitron 32 to the video input signal. Turn on the cable/satellite receiver and the programming now loads onto the television screen.

I accidently pushed something on the remote to my sony wega trinitron and now it says 'no signal' I don't know how to get the picture back


You probably switched the TV from analogue to digital mode or vice-versa.

There should be a small button on your remote control marked DTV or ATV. Try pressing this.

If you are using a separate cable/satellite/tuner box from a SCART cable, turn off the tv, and turn off the cable/satellite box. Then turn the TV back on, then the cable/satellite box back on. The TV should recognise there is an external input and you should be OK.

Try connecting the TV directly to a different wall outlet and check. If the issue persists, try power resetting the TV. Turn Off the TV and remove the power plug from the wall outlet for 1 minute and reconnect it and check the operation. If the issue persists, then the TV requires service.

Check whether the issue occurs with all the external devices like DVD Player, VCR, etc. If the issue is occurring with all the devices then the issue is with the TV.
Try these steps to check whether the issue is resolved.
1.Disconnect the power cable and connect it to a different working wall outlet.
2. Disconnect surge protector if you are using any.
3.Power reset the TV by turning it OFF for atleast one minute.
3. Reset the TV to the Factory defaults.
To reset the TV, turn it ON.
Press the RESET button on the Remote and press the POWER button on the TV at the same time. Now, TV will turn OFF and then back ON automatically.
Now, proceed with the Auto Program.
Check whether the issue is resolved after the Auto Program is finished.

All Sony TVs have a self-diagnose mechanism where the Standby light blinks to indicate that there is an internal malfunction in it.

Note: Your TV does not have the replacable LAMP.

If the issue persists TV requires service. Contact nearest Sony authorized repair center,
