Question about Sony VAIO PCV-V100G (PCVV100GKIT1) PC Desktop
When i want to watch tv from my computer it gives me a pop up saying the sony tv tuner device failed, how do i fix that?
After performing some extensive checking, I found a lot of people are having problems with Vaio PC's, especially the TV tuner card. Without sounding biased, and demeaning Sony, the responses I've seen on various sites concerning the Vaio tuner card, is not very promising, unfortunately, Sony equipment is proprietry, all the responses to the tv card problems point to purchasing recovery cd's from Sony, and the recovery cd's only work if your running them on a genuine Sony Vaio PC. My advice is to uninstall the drivers (only uninstall them if you have the drivers CD), restart the computer, then re-install the drivers, or, using the device manager, perform an 'update driver' using the internet.

Hi, There is a problem with the tv tuner card in the Computer. Go to Control Panel, double click on System, (if you don't see system, in the top left pane of that window, click switch to classic view). In the dialog box that appears, click on the hardware tab, then click on device manager. In this window, see if there is any yellow question mark icon beside the tv tuner device. If there is, then you will need to reinstall the software driver that came with it or you can download it from the internet. If there is no yellow question mark, then just double-click on the device and check the device status to make sure it says "this device is working properly". If it doesn't say this, then there is a problem with the device. You can try to reinstall the driver but there is a big possibility that the tv tuner card might need replace. Please let me know what happens. Regards, Lolita
