Hi buck lite,
Your cable company is telling the truth, you have digital cable. When auto scanned for digital channels the tv is lookig for OTR(over the air) signals. These are broadcast signals you will need an antenna to receive. Depending where you are and the type of antenna you use you probably could pick up some digital channels. Let me know if this helps and please rate this solution. Lone99star

My sony kdl-46v3000 standby light blinks 5 times tv wont turn on


The TV enters standby mode when there is no signal for 30 seconds. https://docs.sony.com/release/KDL46V3000.pdf
I searched standby using Ctrl+F and found this information. It seems you should be able to bring it out of standby using the power button on the remote. You want to make sure there is an input connected and if it is connected to a PC that the PC isn't telling the TV to go into standby.
Try pressing the input button and changing inputs once you press the power button and the Standby is flashing.
If this doesn't work you may need to contact Sony Support.

Sony bravia no digital channels


If you've tried different antennas did you attempt to re-tune/re-scan for additional channels after switching? For digital channels to be detected they must be scanned for, so consult your manual on how to perform an automatic scan of the digital channels available in your area.

I have done an autotune on my sony bravia tv but am not getting channel 9 sbs. the television in the bedroom is a smaller digital tv and that picks up all the channels. the two tv's are connected


Is the splitter an amplified splitter or not? Have you tried the channel search when you connect the antenna directly to the TV? (Disconnect the cables from the splitter and use a coupler to join them together.) Tuners do vary in their sensitivity. For digital signals, your TV should report the signal strength. This is often under the Settings sub-menu. Some TVs will give this information in the Channel Edit option.

If the straight through connection gives a better signal, check your antenna direction and try a different splitter. Amplification will often help; however, when my amplified splitter was damaged the less sensitive tuner lost a number of channels that the other TV received. (Looking at the signal strength, one TV was getting adequate signal with one bar out of 8. The other needed at least 4 bars to process the signal.)

I hope this helps.

With my Sony Bravia 46" xbr the screen keeps cutting out. I'm usig hdmi cables and can't find a reason why te tv keeps cutting out. The sound still remains but picture doesn't. Not even out technician can...


Usually this happens to my set when I am in HD cable channel mode after being on a non-digital ANALOG channel.

I basically reset the TV by changing to a DIGITAL cable channel -- stay on that channel for ten-twenty seconds -- then I switch back DIRECTLY to a HD channel (key in channel number directly on remote).

TV works fine -- seems to be a glitch when the TV changes modes from Analog to HD

How do you watch free cable channels on a sony


If you are connecting the cable directly to the TV with no cable box, you'll select Home on the remote control. This will put the menu on screen. Scroll down until you find the Channel Settings option. Set the Cable category to On, Select Auto Program to automatically scan for all analog and digital channels. You can then customize which channels you want to remove when scanning channels.

Sony 37" Flat Panel Bravia--cant change from channel 2?


Hello,

On the original Sony remote control, try typing in a channel manually. Try pressing the numbers "0-4" or "0-5," and waiting for a moment. If the channel changes, then the TV needs to be autoprogrammed. Using the SOny remote control, go into the MENU (or HOME on some Sony remotes), and look for the initial setup screen. It will walk you through the process. The process is also in the original users manual, available on the www.SONY.com website.

Hope this helps you....

Bad picture


I had the same problem re digital cable. Turn tv off after connecting to cable TV cables, then back on - use your cable tv remote control and choose a channel. This might work for you as it did for me.
