SOURCE: Sony Tuner KV-20TS27 loses signal

Hi,

Either that of your tuner block is acting up. Most Sonys of this production year uses a tuner block that requires 33VDC tuning supply. It has been known for this zener to fail or the capacitor parallel to it. At times, it could just be the tuner block itself.

Should you venture a DIY, it would be to your advantage to have access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings.. It further requires familiarity with electronic components and circuitry, use of a DVM and a soldering iron. Should you be uncomfortable going this route, then perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified professional

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: doesn't get all cable channels

With the menu set to cable signals, the autoprogram should catch all of the cable channels. The Cable Channel option allows you to use either channel 3 or 4 as the "cable" channel. This is when you have an external box that you use to tune in cable rather than the TV directly. The easiest way here is to autoprogram the TV while playing a VCR tape. That will insure that channel 3 is included.

Does the autoprogram fail?

SOURCE: No BBC channels available after retuning Sony Trinitron TV

When TV channels are moved from one frequency to another frequency that was previously used by a different channel (sorry, but there's no simple way of saying that !) as has happened recently in th UK, some digital TVs and digiboxes struggle to sort the channel list out properly and channels can go missing as you describe.

If your equipment has the option to delete all currently stored channels (normally in the tuning menu options) then do so and then do a full re-tune.
Sometimes, this solves the problem as the equipment is no longer aware of any previous use of a frequency and just loads every channel it finds.

If this doesnt work, or your equipment doesnt have the option, then there is normally the option soemwhere in the menus to retore the item to "factory defaults/configuration". This will clear all previously stored channels and after a full re-tune your missing chanels should be there. However, any other configuration changes you previously made, e.g picture size, output type (RGB/NSCT/etc), etc will be lost and you'll need to set these again.

NB. some regions of the country have lost some channels temporarily now until after the switch over programme completes at the end of 2012. If you visit the Freeview website, this will tell you if your area is affected.

SOURCE: Sony Trinitron XBR TV, picture-in-picture got

A solution I found for our KV-32XBR200 was to press Setup on top of the set, then select the "Demo" item with TV/Video. The text overlay apparently banished PIP. Verified this twice, as I'm at this page because our remote can only turn PIP on :-).

Why does a Sony Trinitron when on Video 3 works fine with dish. When on channel 3, color goes to b & w, then snaps back to color. on a regular cycle ?


your converter box has a channel generator for the channel #3 and you tv has a tuner set to ch#3 that and a coax wire . every part of that system has to be working correctly to send video ,color,sound if even one part of the system is a little off you run in to problems . most likely your problem is with the converter box channel generator . contrast that to when you get the signal from your video input . with that simple system you just take video from the video board in the box and send it directly into the video board in the tv .....a lot less to go wrong .

Trying to hook up Phillips DVD player and have 3 coaxial cables that need to be hooked into Sony TV and I have 14 holes for cables-help!


Don't use co-axial cables buy HQ SCART Gold Plated Ribbon cables with full 21pins then hook up the AV out of the DVD player into one of the AV in on the TV.

When you turn your player on it will autoselect the correct AV (audio visual) channel on the TV.

When changing channels, sometimes the color is greenish/purple. Return to the previous channel and the color is fine. I've replaced the DVR from the cable company so I'm assuming that the problem is with...


try a dvd into input one on the tv.if this shows
good with no color problems.then call the
cable co.if you have another tv check the signal with that tv.if the cable is good then
suspect the tuner in the tv.
