Won't respond to remote

The TV won't respond to any remote. It also changes the video input mode by itself. It keeps asking to run initial setup.

Re: Won't respond to remote

Part part # a1401099a doesn't appear to be availabel any more ( Sears or Partsolver)
Does any one have a parts resource that might work?
The Sony is 6 years, still looks great, just the vicim of a little over zealous cleaning :)

Re: Won't respond to remote

I've done some other research on the Web. Apparently, this is a common Sony problem. The fix is to replace the circuit board (VAR board)that controls the remote and front mounted switches. The part can be obtained from Sears (part # a1401099a) for $55 plus shipping and tax. It's a plug in and requires no soldering. I'll give it a try. Thanks for your response to my initial post.

Can't get the tv to switch from cable to antenna mode using a RadioShack remote or the buttons on tv

It sounds that the front panel controls are locked with your tV. You have to unlock it first, if you want to change its input selections. If you cannot select the inputs by using the remote control [I thing you are using a universal remote control], setup the remote control with an other setup code. All codes to remote control won't work with some functions. You have to search and select, which code give maximum functionality with your TV.

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.

Sayno Tv

You didn"t say already working in AV mode or not. Suppose if it is worked means this is the simple one just change programme (-) button in TV front panel till becomes 1 or 0. After 1 or 0 again you press down the same button you get AV mode. Even you won"t get try in menu features to change AV mode. Even you won"t get there is a problem in Micom section. Technical persons only sort out your problem by changing EEPROM ic. I hope the above information is useful to you.

Video input

If there is no input button on the tv itself to change the input then you will most likly need a remote. so you can get a universal remote and follow the instructions to adapt it to your set then you can use it to change the input. (you can get a universasl remote for like 10$) hope it helped

Hi, If the AV button is not in your remote, then perhaps it is part of the Ch up/down buttons - meaning right after your last programmed Channel would be AV before the first program Channel. Although I have yet to come across such a case, I have worked on units/remotes that have this feature of the AV included in the channel memory. Good luck and kind regards.
