Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-27FS100 27" TV

1 Answer

TV won't turn on (and setup menu keeps appearing on screen)

The remote won't turn the t.v. on (but it's not a problem with the remote, because I tried it on another Sony t.v., and it worked just fine).

Also, when the t.v. IS on, every once in a while, the setup screen appears for a few seconds and disappears.

Any thoughts?

Can't seem to switch to input with the remote or go to any channel to use my DVD player


Check first if the Remote Control hanset emits infrared rays or not. Infrared rays are invisioblw to us. There is an easy way to check it. if you have a cellphone with camera option, set it to camera mode, and place the remote hanset against its lens about 1 feet away or so, and press each button on the remote control. You can see the infrared indication on the screen of your cellphone.
If it is Ok, just reset the remote control.

You might need to reset the remote: remove batteries and press the number 1 button for at least 60
seconds. Release the 1 button, replace the batteries, and (if necessary) program the remote again.

Check also for

Something might be between the remote and the remote sensor on the component. Make sure there is a

clear path.

• Maybe the remote isn't aimed directly at the component (DVD, TV, VCR) that you're trying to operate.

• Maybe remote is not in TV Mode. Press the TV button so remote will control TV.

• Maybe batteries in remote are weak, dead, or installed incorrectly. Put new batteries in the remote. (Note,
if you remove the batteries, you may have to reprogram the remote to operate other components.)

How to Use the Remote Control to Complete

the Initial Setup

The technical term is "Navigation"- how you move through the

on-screen menus. The method is the same throughout the menu

screens: highlight your choice and select it.

To highlight a menu item, press the arrow buttons on the remote

to highlight one of the items listed on the screen. Use the up or

down arrow button to move up or down. Use the right or left

arrow button to move right or left.

To select the item that you've highlighted, press OK.

Note: Highlighted means that the menu item stands out from other
menu items on the list (appears darker, brighter, or a different color).

Turn on the TV

Press TV on the remote, or press POWER on the TV's front panel.

Note: Pressing the TV button not only turns on the TV, but puts the remote

into TV mode. "TV mode" means that the buttons on the remote control

operate the TV's functions.

Complete the Initial Setup

The menu system in your TV allows the TV's features to work

properly. The first time you turn on your TV, the SETUP screen

appears with Language highlighted. The default language is

English. To choose another language, press the right arrow
button on the remote.

If these doesn't work, the infrared sensor inside your Tv has got damaged and should be replaced. OK.

We have not had this tv on since went over to digital freeview built in hopwever just put it on and there are no channels stored how do we get channels?


Your TV has to be initilized. It should be retuned to get the channels memorized in its memory section. Then only you can get the channels stored. Hopes that you have its remote control hanset with you. Replace two new cells in it and proceed the folloing steps. Connect ariel to its back socket before doing these.

[1] Press power button on the front panel of your tv. The initial setup screen appears.

[2] Press Ch+ on the remote control handset or on the front panel of your TV to start auto program, or Ch_ button to exit.

The initial setup screen will appear each time you switch on the tv until you perform autoprogram.
To perform autoprogram again

[1] Press Menu button.

[2] Press to highlight Channel Menu

[3] Press Pr Dn button to hilight cable. Press [+] to select.

[4] Press Prog Up or Prog Dn to hilight On or Off according to how you connected your TV. Press [+] to select.

[5] Press Prg Dn to hilight autoprogram. Press [+] to search for channels.

[6] After autoprogram finishes, press "Menu" again to exit.


[1] Turn TV on.

[2] Press and keep hold the "Reset' button on the remote control hanset.

[3] Press and release the "Power button" on the TV front panel. The TV will turn itsef off.

[4] Release "Reset Button" now from your hanset.

These are the processes to be done to either autoprogram or turn it to factory settings. Ok.

Menu screen keeps appearing. Remotes no longer control the TV

Realized by avoiding scams like this website who want to cash in on frustrated electronics owners, and instead just talk to the manufacturer of my TV. Sony walked me through the problem and corrected it.

Nice try, almost had another one

"ch set" appearing on screen

Need to get into the menu pages to setup the tuner. Just buy a under $10 universal remote but make sure it has a menu button.
Or - many other products that use remotes often have an option for programing it to work with other equipment.

32" Sony Wega -- initial set-up menu constantly on

Came across this because I was having the same problem. I was getting the menu immediately. It started with the remotes not working with the TV, so I unplugged it. Afterwards, the initial setup appeared, but couldn't complete. I don't have anything connected to the tuner, everything is on video inputs. Don't know why it wouldn't complete, it would get 20-40 channels into it, and stop, and the "initial setup screen" appeared. I ended up turning off all peripherals, waited about 10 minutes, then running the setup. it finally completed the scan of the tuner channels, and has not appeared since. Perhaps just an accidental solution, but hopefully something in there helps.
