Question about Sony KV-27V42 27" TV

1 Answer

I don't know if my sony trinitron kv-2742 27" tv needs a box

I found the set along side the road it works fine. But I don't know if it needs a digital to analog converter box or if it is already digital ready. How can I tell: I'll have to find this out before the new digital rules come into affect in June.

    From what I can find, it is not HD compliant.

    You can also check by hooking an antennas up, do a channel scan, and see if you get channels other than the .01, .02, .03 channels.

Given the history of the aquirement, I checked the model number and there is no reference to be able to receive digital. You can buy a convertor box anytime they are available to use on the set. There is no deadline to hook it up.

I have a Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-27FS100 TV


You will need the converter if you are dependent on broadcast reception; in other words, use an antenna with your set. Cable and satellite sources may or may not 'go digital' at some point in time so if you are using one of these, check with your cable or satellite company. 
If you decide to buy one of the pretty, new flat panel sets, buy the converter and DON'T toss your Sony. Store them in a dry place as backups. The flat panel sets are crapping out all over so you might do without TV when it fails.

Is my tv digital?


It is not a matter if your TV is compatible with a digital signal, it is the signal being offered to the TV.
Meaning, if you are using Cable TV, you are fine and need no further action because the digital signals are already converted by the Cable Box into either an analog TV (RF) signal, or a PBR (RGB or Comp.Video) signal which the TV understands via a separate input (external video input).

Digital tuner?


Good question, Mike. I wondered about my fs210 model, too, and I found the answer at a Sony tech-support site.

1. Go to: http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/select-system.pl?DIRECTOR=DOCS
2. Enter your TV's model number, which, in this case, is: kv-32fs100 (and then click on Continue).
3. At the resulting page, under "Support by Type" in the left margin, click on "News & Alerts."
4. At the next page, click on: 04/02/2008: Critical: Is my Sony® television ready for the Digital TV (DTV) transition?
5. Your TV and mine are analog, but scroll down the page mentioned in #4, above, to see all of your options.

Consumers can determine whether any Sony TV is digital, just by entering the model number and following the steps listed above. ~ Kind regards, Gilda M. (replied 1/23/09)

Sony KV-27FS100 does not respond to remote


Good day.

Maybe there are loose connections along the IC that supports the operation of your remote. This could also hamper initial set up operation of your unit. Also, check on loose connections along the power supply.
