Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-34XBR800 34" TV

1 Answer

None of the buttons work on my TV

I have a Sony Wega 36" Trinitron - about 7 years old. This evening, when attemptingto change channels, the Menu pops up - I changed batteries in the remote - still nothing. In fact, using the On/Off button ytop of teh TV or the volume or channel up/down buttons (also on top of the TV) also gets the Menu option up.
If, on the remote, I hit the DVD button, and then the On/Off switch, the DVD functions accordingly - so the remote works!
It appears as though NONE of the TV buttons on the remote or actually on the TV wish to work. I have to press and hold the ON/OFF button the TV for several seconds for the TV to react.
Any ideas? I don't wish to have to take it in to a Sony store - the thing is several hundred pounds. Any help in correcting this is appreciated.
Cheers
AJ

    Nope! After receiving your response, I had it unplugged for 15 minutes - nada! Same non-responsive issues. Got anything else in mind?

Sony Wega trinitron TV wont turn on..Keeps shutting off and standby flashes 7 times


Thank you for your question.

 

Fortunately this is a common symptom and there is a fix for it.

 

There are two power supply IC's and a capacitor that need to be change. In particular IC6501, IC8002, part number, Mcz3001db, and C6556, 33uF @ 160V.

Please note that all HDTV channels project wide screen pictures. You can still go to settings and then picture mode and change the format to 4:3/full mode.

Cannot change channel, volume, or select menu. will not accept input from remote anymore. you press menu, on the tv, nothing then you press volume or channel and menu pops up but as soon as any key is...


If the buttons do something, but not what they are supposed to do.....By chance are you using a universal remote (replacement for your original)? If so, the codes for the remote need to be re-set for use with your TV. Hope this helps.

My tv stays on favorite channel menu and I cant get it to change to video. The remote only powers on the unit and wont change anything or turn off. The menu on the tv wont help. Please help


Sounds like you have a stuck button on the front of the TV or a bad protection diode in the keypad matrix that will need to be looked at by a technician.

Apparently, channels have to be autoprogrammed first before those buttons will work.

Our TV is 4 years old but we never used the channel buttons bc it was always hooked up to DirecTv thru video input. SO when we disconnected the TV to sell, we thought it was a problem.

Tired with this sony tv


Sony doesn't want anyone to see a poor picture on a Sony tv so they have a circuit that blanks the video if there is a weak picture or any other problem concerning picture quality. My Sony factory Instructor told me this many many years ago. I'm feeling old...but anyway you need a technician. Sorry.

Tv has a mind of its own


Just had the TV repaired for the same issue. According to the shop it was a bad channel up/down switch. That impacted the other functions (menu not working, remote malfunction) because they're all intertwined. Only about a $75 fix here in the DC area, so maybe cheaper elsewhere.
