this may be too late, but i had the same problem, then discovered that if you press the top of the volume up/down buttons together, the menu comes up. I was trying to solve another problem this way when I accidentally locked the TV. The instruction booklet tells me that you can only unlock it with the remote control, but that has long ago bit the dust. Does this mean that I'll never be able to turn it on again??!!

According to the Sony website I needed to get a software download in order to fix this problem. I found out how to do this from the manual and realised that the re-tune menu I was looking at was for analogue only. The pictograms onmy remote control are a blurred but the manual helpfully provided a picture showing the correct program "info" button (next to 0) which has options to look at other things, including a "detailed set up" menu on the blue tab, which provides options for software download and re-tune of digital channels.
Incidentally, I discovered that my TV model was not quite as quoted above - it is KD-28DX200U, but expect the same process works for other oldish models.

SOURCE: How to tune an old Television
The TV described is a VHF rotary tuner type, which will not work with any VCR manufactured after 1994 (those VCRs are UHF channel 37 output for Australia and 38 for NZ). VCRs were not as common in the 70s (as they were in the 80s onwards), and the K9 would have required a line-sync modification (involving 2 links added to U330 (the Line Control module) to use such a device anyway. The receiving channel for low-frequency VCRs such as 80s models, on this TV was either 0 or 1 (in Australia - channel 3 or 4 for NZ).
Philips did make a few variations of this chassis, including a later model, which was a push button VHF/UHF tuner type, but still a K9. Again, these were unreliable with any VCR connected, and they all required the line-sync modification.
It is extremely rare these days to find a working K9, as nearly all of them have 'popped their picture tubes' due to their age and the weight of the deflection yokes putting stress on the neck, resulting in fractures.
I sincerely hope you got rid of that old set, and replaced it with a newer one - which will allow connection of all modern external equipment. TVs made in the 70s, especially K9s and K11s no longer comply with current electrical safety standards.
