Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-36HS420 36" TV

1 Answer

Cant access input jacks

We had a guy come in to change the video settings on the tv so that it would not display video 1,2,3 etc. but instead display tv, dvd, game, and vhs. The problem now though is that i can no longer use any of the other inputs on the back of the tv that werent already assigned to a specific device. For example i tried to plug the hd cable into the second hd ports (video 6) but since it wasnt programmed into the system, I can no longer access it. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: cant access input jacks

Go into the setup menus IE:Video,Audio etc: The last page has the video label option. It is there where you select the label you want to give such as VHS,Beta,DVD etc. You can also select SKIP and that is why you can't access those inputs. Select any label besides SKIP and your issue will be gone.

How do i change the input

The 27" TV uses the same instructions as the 20", and I found the manual for you at the link below. Answering your question directly, here is the section of the instructions about changing input:
Changing the TV's Input Normally, your TV displays the signal coming through the antenna terminal. However, if you've connected another component to your TV(such as a VCR & DVD) using the Video/Audio input,you will want to be able to view the signal from the component.To do this, you will need to switch from the ' TV ' input to the 'AV1-AV3, CVI' Input, as follows. 1 With the TV on, press the MENU button twice, then " Set-Up " menu will appear. 2 Use the WCHV buttons to select " Input ". 3 Press the CVOLB buttons to change the input source from ' TV ' to 'AV1, AV2, AV3, CVI'. 4 Wait 20 seconds, or press DISPLAY button or MENU button to return to normal TV viewing. * CVI means the Component Video Input (Y/ PB/ PR) from the DVD player etc.* Users can also select these input modes with the TV/AV button or the INPUT button on theremote controller. * On the AV1 mode , if you connect the S-VHS jack to your TV, "AV1" is changed to "S-VIDEO".
The link to the manual is below.

Hooked up a Directv box to the tv, with rca cables(red white yellow). How do I get the tv to show the right screen for a picture? Model # 6432GG

The Remote for the TV set itself should have either a input or source button on it (some call it tv/video) If you are hooked to a set with more than one set of the jacks they will be labeled video 1 or 2 etc.

simply with the remote for the tv change inputs until you either see the picture or the display matches the location you plugged into.

Refer to the manual (free download here). Generally, a blue screen indicates a very low or non-existent signal. This can happen when the antenna is unable to gather enough of a signal from a particular broadcaster, or if an A/V input is selected, but the A/V device is not on or providing a signal. Since you are not seeing channel information when tuning, I suspect that the television is set to display an A/V input instead of the internal tuner.

With a working remote, locate the TV/AV button on the lower left (manual page 3 - item 8). When this button is pressed, you can choose to display signals on the ANT, VIDEO1, VIDEO2 or COMPONENT jacks. The ANT selection chooses the input on the RF jack such as an antenna or cable TV (with or without converter box). If using a cable box, the TV tuner should be set to Ch3 or Ch4 as determined by your cable box. Otherwise, select the VIDEO1, VIDEO2 or COMPONENT input that has the source signals you wish to watch from a cable box, DVD player, etc. that is connected to the rear input jacks. Page 7 of the manual details the connection and remote operation.

I hope this helps!

How do you switch to video mode with no remote

you cant.
your going to have to get a mid priced universal with extended features. read the packaging. thrift stores sometimes have a bag wall with old remotes so if you have someone who goes to the thrift store sometimes tell them to start looking for either a vcr or tv remote that says emerson on it for you. directv and dish network universals have video input buttons, if you have eith of those providers go to their website, download or find the chapter where it shows how to set up your viseo input. it is shut off by default..

Audio and Video Front Inputs are available

for a quick connection of a VCR, to playback

video from a camera or attach a gaming

device. Use the AV button on the remote control

to tune these inputs.

1 Connect the video (yellow) cable

from the Video output on the Camera

(or accessory device) to the Video (yellow)

Input located on the FRONT of

the TV.

2 For Stereo Devices: Connect the audio

cable (red and white) from the Audio

Left and Right Outputs on the Camera

to a Stereo to Mono adapter. Then plug

the single end of the adapter to the

Audio In (white) jack on the FRONT

of the television.

For Mono Devices: Connect one end

of the audio cable from the Audio Out

jack on the device to the Audio In
(white) jack on the FRONT of the television

3 Turn the TV and the accessory device


4 Press the AV button on the remote

control to tune the TV to the side input

jacks. "Front" will appear on the TV


5 Press the PLAY  button on the

accessory device to view playback, or

to access the accessory device (camera,
gaming unit, etc.).

Repeatedly pressing the AV button on the

remote control will toggle the picture source

Connect the composite video RCA (yellow) cable output of the DVD player to the TV's video input RCA (yellow jack). Connect the red and white RCA cable from the DVD players audio output to the TV's audio input (red and white jacks). Select the source input from the TV's control panel - if it has an input selector switch, set it to select the video source from the front panel input jacks if you connected the three cables - yellow, red and white on the front of the set. Or, change the channel to receive the video auxiliary input source instead of the broadcast station.

Cant get both a VCR & DVD player to work on a SANYO TV, model # DS27590 cause there is no input button. The VCR works using a video button. Is it even possible???

Well if you could gain access to the inside if the set you could locate the Video's Composite Input, and there you could simply "Tap In" there, and run a Coax. OUT for the Video?DVD IN, and similarly, find the Audio's Input, and do the same for that. Then you could, simply NOT provide a signal, IE: Turn on & use, the VCR/DVD. And NOT supply a signal from the VCR/DVD. Instead supply the signal via YOUR leads, and it will NOT know the difference, and display what is being fed into it.

firstly try that tv to a different tv
if this works
then check your tv av connections in side tv
also check cables continuity
if this fails buy a AV/ RF converter, have your AV be connected to a converter, and let your output be RF feed to a tv, RF input, so instead of using AV on your tv you will be using RFchannel mode

No picture or sound

If the screen displays VIDEO 1 then the set is in video 1 mode, looking for a signal on the video 1 input jacks. Press the TV/VIDEO button on the remote (or the set itself if it has it) and cycle around to the input you are actually using.
