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?

My tv's channels are only up to ch 35, and we have cable tv connection. I cant utilize my cable connection cause my tv's only programmed up to 35. do we have a way to program it to go up to more than 35?...


I assume you have analog cable TV service and no cable box. Press MENU button on your TV remote. Go over to CHANNEL SETUP. There are four arrow buttons and a button in the middle of the arrow buttons on the TV remote control. Use these arrow buttons to go up, down, left and right. Use the button in the center to select. TV On-screen menu has Video, then Audio, then Channel Setup.

Cable can be set to ON or OFF, you want to set it ON to get cable channels.
Go down to AUTO PROGRAM and select it, press button in the center of arrow keys.
A short delay while available channels are searched so be patient. After Auto Program finishes, press MENU to exit. You can perform Auto Program whenever required.

You can also add or skip channels manually. You will discover more options in the TVs menus.

On Sony 36 iinch Trinitron TV, when I go to HDTV channels the picture size changes to widescreen. How do I adjust back to full screen on HD? I tried the "no zoom" button but that doesn't work. Cannot...


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.

Menu screen keeps appearing. Remotes no longer control the TV


Realized by avoiding scams like this website who want to cash in on frustrated electronics owners, and instead just talk to the manufacturer of my TV. Sony walked me through the problem and corrected it.

Nice try fixya.com, almost had another one

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.
