Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-27FS100 27" TV

1 Answer

Front panel controls are unresponsive

TV was operating normally, turned off, then when daughter turned back on, switched to Video 2, sound maximized, and none of the controls on the front panel work. TV can't be turned off, even after pulling the plug. When you turn the sound down, it automatically turns itself up to max. I can't change from Video 2 to any other video input. I removed all the connections from the TV and plugged into a different outlet and the behavior followed. Any insight is appreciated!

Re: front panel controls are unresponsive

Check volume up switch in front panel locked continuously. If it is not take away the remote control from the TV or remove the battery in the remote. Because maybe the remote continuously sending volume up commands. Rarely this type problem occurs through remote control also. Even problem is not sorted there is problem in EEPROM ic (memory ic). This can be sorted out by the technical persons only. I hope this useful to you.

button until the red indicator stays

on, then release the CODE SEARCH


2. Press and release the desired Mode

button (TV, VCR, etc.). The red

indicator blinks, then stays lit.

3. Enter the 4 digit code from the code

tables. Note: after a valid code entry,

the red indicator turns off. For an

4. With your device on, press

CHANNEL UP. If the device

Just got this tv from friend. has no remote. screen is black. sound is good. when you push menu button, white line goes across horizontally the screen.

The horizontal line indicates the vertical deflection circuit is not working. Either the set is stuck in service mode for adjusting color (turns off vertical), or the deflection circuit has failed.

Some RCA TV sets have a "Service" switch in the back, down near the bottom of the set. Most of the newer sets use a combination of remote control and front panel buttons to get into service mode, and that can be turned off by unplugging the set and plugging it back in. Try looking for the mechanically operated service switch in the back first.

Menu Screen pops up, try to exit and goes to video 1

This could be a stuck button on the front control panel or a bad solder connection on one of the switches on the front control panel.

Try unplugging the TV for about 10 minutes and then tunung it on again. Try a factory

To reset the TV to factory settings
Turn the TV on.
2 Hold down on the remote control.
3 Press and release the POWER button on the TV front panel. The TV will turn itself off,
then back on.
4 Release .

I'm assuming step 2 means hold down the power button.

Sony 27" wont turn off!!!!

It looks like one of the buttons on the front panel is stuck, base on the info you have provided; the volumen down button is stuck. The remote or any other buttons will not be operative until the fault has been remove.
I would suggest to try to press the Vol. down a few times just to see of it unlocks, if that does not work, the front panel assembly will have to be remove and try again if it works with the remote or manually.
The last thing to do if none of the above works, it will be to put a new switch.
Good Luck.

My dad and I fixed the TV/Video problem over the weekend using one of the solutions suggested. Make sure you stay away from the red wire running from the back of the tube to the circuit board.

1. Take the cover off the back of the TV.
2. On the bottom of the TV is a circuit board that is mounted on top of a plastic tray. Remove the cables running from the speakers by squeezing the tab on the white plug and pulling them up and off the board.
3. Looking at the back of the TV, pull the board+tray out (barely secured in there) and flip it 180 degrees so you're looking at the front of the board.
4. Desolder and remove the TV/Video push button. It's labeled on the PCB, and should be the second button in from the left.
5. Place the tray back in the TV and make sure the other buttons still remaining on the baord are aligned with the buttons on the front of the TV.
6. Put the cover back and you're done.

TV works as good as new again. Of course I can't use the TV/Video button on the TV itself, but the remote handles that fine. 20 minutes max, and no repairman needed.

Sony KV-27FS100L -

This is due to switches malfuction due to corrosion in switch and dust accumulated in the switch. Since you rarely used switch now after failure of remote of remote control you tried to operate the switch. Another thing you said did"t get picture, maybe memory problem is there. This can be sorted out by the technician only.
