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.

I have an older Broksonic TV that has a built in DVD player.


Under the menu settings, make sure tv is set to CATV and not Air. CATV is for cable.
Then look for tuner options or channel edit options.
Find the "autoprogram" option and select it. It will scan and remember all available channels

T.v wont go past channel 36


I have not worked on this particular model of Sony. What I will say is for the ones that I have worked on.

If you are on cable, the set should be in the CATV or cable mode.

Go in to the user menu and look for section of the menu for the channel setup. There should be a prompt for auto program.

In almost all of the TV models the original factory remote is required to make any set-up changes in the TV set. What I explained is for TV sets that allow changes to be made from the front panel button controls.

Cable channels fuzz out


I think you have a bad connection in the tuner. The tuner is what decides what channel you get. It's a small box inside your tv about the size of a pack of cigarettes. These have been known to develop loose connections or just go bad. Some are pretty expensive depending on the type set you have. Since your set is older and you want it fixed you'd better get an estimae first. Stargazer
