Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-24FS120 24" TV

Remote doesn't work

I recently got a second hand SONY Trinitron TV. I bought a universal remote control for it, which worked fine for a couple of months. Suddenly, one day the remote stopped working. I don't know if it had something to do with the drywall dust I was kicking up at the time or if my grandmother pressed something wrong on the remote, but it suddenly just stopped working. I tried reprogramming it, and the funny thing is that after following the necessary steps (pressing "code search", "TV" and entering the specific RCA code), the remote will work for a few seconds and then stop working again. Any ideas?"

Re: Remote doesn't work

Possibly some of the dry wall dust could have gotten into the buttons on your remote. You can check the remote by holding it close to an AM radio receiver and listening for popping sounds as each button on the remote is pushed. You may have to move the remote around to find a position where the radio will pick up the signals. (usually close to the antenna ) also you may have to tune you radio up and down the dial. With this method you can test each button on your remote! Hope this will help you! Stargazer

Sony trinitron number is kv20fv12 what is the number for a remote controller for this tv

The original remote control number to this set is {RM - Y198}. If you buy its original one, contact the nearest authorized service center for Sony. The universal remote control codes for Sony Brand Tvs are: 0128 0013 0002 0071 0380
If you wish to buy a universal remote control, check whether there is these codes with its code list. The code list will be attached with every universal remote control pack. Make sure there are these codes with it.
In my opinion, it will be best to buy its original one. Original is Original, and Universal is Universal!!

I have sony 55" wega

If this is just a problem with the remote specifically and 'not' manual buttons (on the tv) then the problem is either the remote or the IR sensor in the TV.

First thing is to check the batteries (which im guessing you have done) but its a process of elimination.

Second is to try another remote. If you can get your hands on another universal remote for example, then you can see if its the IR sensor on the TV, or just the remote control.

Sony Trinitron Tv

Dear sammy5,
Stop by any TV repair shop in your area, and ask to borrow a used original Sony remote, they may require a small deposit; access the menu, perform your set up, then return it. Or you could buy a universal Sony remote from Walmart that should work just fine, for about. $7.00.

Hope this helps.

Sony Trinitron 30" no remote seems to work

If you want to test the voltage you can do so at connector CN002 on the main board. You should have 5 volts DC at pin 4 and at pin 5 marked SIRCS (sony infared remote control system)should be 5 volts as well but, will drop to about 2.5 volts when any button is pressed on the remote. If it doesn't change then you should change the HR board wich houses the IR rec. and associated components.
