Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-36FS120 36" TV
I have a 36" Sony Trinitron Wega CRT flat screen HDTV - not sure of model number. I'm not sure how old it is, but it appears to be about 3-5 years old (it does have one HDMI input). I bought it with my house, and I'm lucky it came with the remote, let alone the manual. As it is our secondary TV, we did not opt to rent a second cable tuner box from the cable company, rather we are relying on the TV's built-in tuner. On two other TVs without boxes, we are able to get channels into the 60s (we're not expecting the same capability as the TV with the cable box). When you auto-program this Sony, it tunes channels 2-25, and that's it. The channel numbers don't even coincide with the proper networks. It doesn't sense any digital channels. It's not the line in - I ran a coax from another TV's wall socket and it did the same thing, and the other TV gets channels above 25 normally. I saw something like this before in a far older TV (ca 1985) where it didn't have tuning over 44 - it didn't need to in 1985! This set is newer and I imagine does not have that problem. I've looked through all of the on-screen programming options, and can't seem to find anything that works. Any experts out there have any ideas? Thanks!!
Since you are not using a set top box, you will probably only get channels up into the 70's, if available in your town, as most channels above this are digital, which analog cannot convert. As for the digital tuner, I have the same problen. It will not pick up any digital channels. Because of this, I have had to get a digital box(why in the hell should I have a digital tuner?) to recieve digital channels. I have the same tv you have, except a standard def. If you ever find out why your digital tuner won't work, I'd love to know myself. good luck, hope this helps.
