What do I do for tv switching from tv to various video modes and cycling through set up screens

When the tv is turned on it will all of a sudden change from tv to video 1, video2, video 3 and so on. It will cycle back to tv and then sometimes just stop at one of the video. In addition to this now the set up screens are coming up by themselve and it cycles through set up screens without touching anything. I have removed batteries from the remote so it is not the problem So now the tv is on but it keeps cycling through the set up menus? Please advise

To play videogames on an old tv PLEASE HELP

You'll need to switch the TV into Video mode. Most TV sets will have a button on the front panel labelled "input" or "tv/video," and pressing this button will cycle through the various inputs your TV has.

Alternatively, this button may be located on your remote control.

Rarely, no button exists, and video input is selected by changing the channel below channel 2; as if you were trying to select channel 1. This will select the video input on sets without a separate input selector button.

Tv turns on but no picture or sound

It sounds like its in video mode to me if it actually did turn on. Press the
video button 1 -7 times until it cycles to your screen. (manually press the
video button on the front and just below your tv).

How to change the tv mode. Its on AV mode and i want to change it back to TV mode

You can set the Game mode and External input mode at the same time by pressing the GAME button on the remote control. "GAME" appears on the TV screen. To exit the the Game mode and the external input mode, press the GAME button on the remote control again. To cancel GAME mode only, adjust the PICTURE control. The game mode will be set ot 'OFF" automatically. In this case "VIDEO" instead of "GAME" appeares on the TV screen. When you press the GAME button if the TV is off, the TV turns ON and will be in the GAME mode and external input mode automatically.

Sony Trinitron Wega kv-36fs120 wont turn on, standby/timer LED flashes 9 times.

The relay is in the power supply area. I am sure that the fault is not the relay.

It is very common that there are various components starting to go off spec from age. Most of the failures are in the scan amplifiers and power supply areas.

It is also possible that the CRT emission is too low from age. What happens is that it is on the minimum edge and this explains why the set may turn on some of the time.

When the main uPC in the set sees any potential fault conditions it will go in to a protection mode to prevent damage and to be safe. Your set is probably borderline to operate.

Considering the age of your set, I would be shopping for a new TV set.

Blurry Sanyo TV

Well after playing around with the tv some more, I decided the problem was probably the cable jack, and tried running the video in/out cables thru the VCR to get around this, which I read generally works but in this case nothing. I had tried the tv on various settings, anytime I put the tv in "video" mode I'd get a blue screen and nothing else. Anyway I found a switch in the back of the Direct Tv box for ch. 3 & 4 settings. So I flipped it but still got a snowy picture, only this time it was on ch 4 instead of ch 3. By sheer accident I put the tv back in video mode while I had the satilites setting to ch 4, and the picture came up crystal clear. Since I didn't mess with it further, I'm not sure if it was the channel selector or the fact that hooked the tv up via the video cables, but whatever it was it did the trick.

I just KNEW this could not be a broken tv despite the fact that everhwere I read online suggested it was. I knew pictures can go out, or sound can go out....but to have BOTH go out didn't make sense to me. Anyway, glad its working! :)

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.

TV shuts off by itself in full picture mode

The Sony sets are full of circuits which monitor and detect faults throughout the set. These circuits monitor main B+ voltage and current, low B+ voltage and current, vertical and horizontal circuits and CRT current. Finding an intermitten problem in these circuits is no easy task and should be left to someone with experience in Sony sets.

Buttons on TV or remote not working. Can only cycle through video input options.

It sounds as though the TVs in a demo mode. Has someone recently been over and was playing with the remote. If so go into the menu of the tV set and look for set up and demo mode. Turn off the demo mode. if this doesent help call i-866-427-3946 and talk to the customer service deptartment. Good Luck
