Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I cannot get any TV channels on my Sony TV

I have a (10 yrs old - and not used for 3 years) Sony 29" TV, which seems perfectly fine, except that I cannot seem to tune the TV channels either manually or automatically. The TV works perfectly as a monitor for my DVD player.

But I cannot seem to receive any of the free to air channels that I used to be able to get. (In Australia at this stage we have 5 free to air channels broadcasting in Analog UHF/VHF - though I think we go fully digital in 2010).

I have connected an old rabbit ears antenna (which works on my other smaller TV, so that seems OK). But no real signal shows up on the larger screen - just a vague black and white signal from only one station.

I am at a complete loss to understand why this is loss of signal is happening. All I have been able to come up with is that I suspect that the removalists who took the TV out of storage may have slightly knocked the aerial (coaxial?) input slightly, as it no longer seems exactly perpendicular to the set. The connection is not mangled or anything, just slightly off centre.

Could that cause this problem? Could some wiring internal to the aerial plug have been dislodged, and therefore the signal is not getting to the automatic tuner?

It sounds like you have identified the the correct problem, as the Coax connector has probably been knocked loose from the circuit board inside the TV. If you have any knowledge on this sort of thing you can take it apart and re solder the connections. If not I suggest you take it to be serviced by a professional.

I have a new rca receiver and have it hooked up to my dvd player which works fine. I have it hooked into my tv and Im not getting sesurround through my tv how can I connect to the tv to make it work my tv...


Take a clue from the 10-year old vintage of the TV and the two analog audio cables. It's Dolby Pro Logic Surround at best, not Dolby Surround in the modern, digital, multi-channel sense.

TV's are not the source nor the end of a multi-channel audio chain. Feed this thing a 2-channel source from a Cable Box (into the "TV" jacks), DVD, Video Tape or CD with proper Dolby Surround encoding and will seem to open up the sound field a bit and kick in a little surround effect. It can also simulate a Hall effect and Dolby 3 stereo.

If there is no cable switch anywhere (make sure you check the back where the cable screws on) you will have to have a converter box to change channels with. When using a converter you put the TV on channel 3 or 4 and switch channels on the converter. Thanks

Sony c450 will not work with new 46" Samsung TV using compodent 3


are you sure that the channel your tv is on matches the name on the inputs where you plugged the component cables in? Channel surf-maybe start at 2 and go down and that is where those input channels should be.
