    I have a Sony Trinitron KV32XBR100 the not responding to channel controls on remote and I don't know how to + or - channels. Something I

    do with the remote is making the channel stay on one station.

    Solution above worked brilliantly - no mention of the hidden menu in the handbook so would have paid an engineer a furtune to do what i've just done in 5 minutes. Thanks all!!

    Thanks for this info guys. When I follow these steps it brings up the secret menu and I scroll down to line 12 but nothing happens when I press the OK button. Any ideas. Thanks again.

  • colinmac May 11, 2010

    Tried the hidden menu thing and it worked first time!!



    Thanks all for help

  • Jim Nye Dec 21, 2012

    Yes! - it took a couple of tries but it worked. I wonder why this problem occurs. I also wonder who designed a system that requires what amounts to a hack in order to tune your TV. And while I'm at it, the manual for this TV is shockingly poor..

I have found the solution at last :)
Put the TV in standby and press these buttons in order
Info, Menu, Mute and Power on.
You will then see a hidden menu, on line 12 select reset
Bingo :)

This method finally worked after a few times so don't give up. Also you should try scrolling left and right on reset line 12 of secret menu and play about a bit. Brilliant guys...CHEERS. :)

    Hi. Got the secret menu up for 6th or 7th time and I scrolled left and it went off,,,,when i pressed Power On button it came to 'Plug & Play' menu and I installed the channels as if I had just bought the TV and it started to load all the DTV channels. Now working fully. I suggest keep trying this method and even unplug the set overnight then try again and again the next day. It eventually worked for me. Many thanks to all involved.

Have a vizio lcd tv . can not get any channels today with the switch over to digital. i use an antenna


Your TV probably does not have a digital tuner connected to the DTV/ANT input. Mine didn't. I had to connect the digital antenna to a digital converter box THEN go to the DTV/ANT input. Only then would it activate the DTV menu and allow me to scan for channels. If your TV worked fine with Cable TV connected to the input, it was because your signal was coming from the digital tuner in your DVR, or your cable provider was sending you an unscrambled digital signal (not likely).
I used a digital converter box I had purchased with the government $40 coupon back in 2009 but the resolution is only 480 and looks like a Monet or Renoir. Now I am shopping for a high quality tuner.

How do i delete a dtv channel


Yes, usually on most models you can delete channel for presets. Depends on the digital box model, or if TV has built in digital, on the TV.
Post here digital box and TV model, I will see if I can find detailed instructions.
