Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-50WE655 50" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Lost some stations on my Sony lcd TV.

I have basic cable.
My TV is a 5yr. old Sony KDF-50WE655 grand wega LCD projection.
It has worked fine up until a couple of days ago when I seem to have lost the HD channels.
I also have a 4 mo. old 19" View Sonic that still gets all the channels the Sony used to.

Is this a signal problem or a TV?

    Thanks! I tried to reprogram it and it only found the same channels.
    Like you said the cable company wants me to rent a box.
    I then re-routed the coax straight to the TV instead of through a spike protector.
    I then ran the auto program again and it came up with a lot more channels.

It is a possibility if you are using a cable tv service, without a converter box, that the cable company has limited the number of station you are able to receive. It seems to be their new ploy to get subscribers to get a box since the digital changeover. I also may be that the TV's tuner memory may have to be re-programmed. Go into the menu and go through the channel scan process and see if they return. If they don'y it may be a tuner issue. An easy fix is to get a cable box!
Hope this has been helpful

My Sony Grand Wega LCD TV currently has a large blue spot on the left side of the screen when powered on. I have changed the lamp, but this did not solve the problem. Could this be caused by bad component...


Hi,
I'm afraid, it is problem of optics unit block (light engine), there are 3 LCDs red-green-blue for color picture formation and blue LCD sounds bad, please call local TV tech for fix.
Thanks.

It is most likely a signal issue. Bad coax connections, splitters and faulty cable are usually the culprit. Best to call your cable company and request a signal test. You may also try swapping tvs. Swap sony with viewsonic in the room where viewsonic tv is.
