SOURCE: cant locate or adjust the the TV color

Sorry to tell you my friend, if you do not have the original remote, you cannot adjust the set with the on screen menu. See if a friend or someone you know has a sony tv set that you can borrow one from. Sony does make a universal inexpensive remote I saw at walmart once. That should work too. Good Luck Please dont forget to rate this thread.

SOURCE: my TV is blurry. I

after 4 or 5 yrs EHT ( transformer that supplies voltage to CRT TUBE - TV TUBE ) becomes weak - then 1 of the indication is ....picture becomes dull...blurr... (less brightness & less contrast , no clarity ) solution is EHT ( also called as flyback transformer ) should be replaced....... {{ few details about EHT---- its size will be around 3inch X 2inch X 2inch ---it will have 2 or 3 knobs to adjust focus , brightness ------ at bottom around 10 pins will be there ------- from EHT 1 thick red colour cable goes to CRT TUBE --------- on EHT its part number will be there }} -------- so if user is a technical person having idea about components ( resistors, transistors, diodes, etc ) , having tools like multimeter ( to check components) , soldering iron, soldering lead, flux, desoldering wig ( for removing components), etc also little experience in servicing field( compulsory) ----------------- then user can remove EHT from main board ---- take to electronic shop ----- buy same type EHT --------- fix to mainboard ( knobs on EHT should be adjusted according to picture after switching TV --- this adjustment is very important ) ---------- iam from bangalore ----- here EHT's price will be around Rs 250 ( US $ 6 ) & for my customers (in bangalore) i will take another Rs 500 (US $ 11) as service charge......i don't have any idea about EHT ' s price & service charge in your place.........since it is very risky job i suggest to contact good TV service engineer ------- because they are highly experienced & can fix this component very easily ( or if any of your friend who is in servicing line can do this ) - 100% GUARANTEE again your TV works normally - GUARANTEE

I have a Sylvania Model No. SST4273 TV manufactured in 2003. For a couple years now I've noticed that I can't see the sides of many broadcasts - text extends to the left and right beyond my screen.

If there's a setting that will show the whole picture, it's in the Menu under Picture:

1)Press the MENU button so that the menu display appears on the TV screen.
2)Press the VOL(ume)  button so that "PICTURE" is selected.
3)Select the feature you wish to adjust with the CH(annel)  or  button and adjust it with the VOL(ume)  or  button.

No remote for sylvania tv dvd combo how can I adjust color etc

Hello, Tom -

If you choose not to purchase a universal remote control to use with your Sylvania TV, you can probably use the buttons along one side of the TV screen to adjust the color and whatever other aspects you wish to adjust.

First, you will need to turn the TV on by pressing the Power or On/Off button for the TV. Then you will need to figure out what the other buttons on the side of the TV do. If you have the owner's manual refer to that.

Without knowing the model number of your Sylania TV, I cannot find an owner's manual for you and give you the specific directions. If you wish, using the Edit feature, you can add the model number of your Sylvania TV so I or someone else can better help you.

I have a Sylvania TV Mod 642off which I have disconnected from Comcast and want to use with a TriQuest 8040 Antenna. Do I need a digital converter?

When you do a channel scan do you get any something - something channels (ex. 10-1 0r 10.1)? if you do you don't need a digital adapter.But most flat panels already have digital antennas in them.

My Tv has red light (color) out of focus..I've tried tuning the lance but it's not the problem in the's something else..don't know you?

Your TV has three picture tubes which are aligned to properly converge the projected light beams on the screen. Each picture tube projects a single color of Blue Green or Red. During production your TV was carefully adjusted to properly align these colors. As a feature you have the ability to adjust these colors.thats called convergence.If you don't have a manual to show you how to adjust you can find one here
