Re: t.v wont go past channel 36

I have not worked on this particular model of Sony. What I will say is for the ones that I have worked on.

If you are on cable, the set should be in the CATV or cable mode.

Go in to the user menu and look for section of the menu for the channel setup. There should be a prompt for auto program.

In almost all of the TV models the original factory remote is required to make any set-up changes in the TV set. What I explained is for TV sets that allow changes to be made from the front panel button controls.

Cannot change channel, volume, or select menu. will not accept input from remote anymore. you press menu, on the tv, nothing then you press volume or channel and menu pops up but as soon as any key is...

If the buttons do something, but not what they are supposed to do.....By chance are you using a universal remote (replacement for your original)? If so, the codes for the remote need to be re-set for use with your TV. Hope this helps.

Hi, There is a black box in the middle of the screen, it goes away when you change the channel but comes back in 5 secounds

Try to toggle the close caption button on your remote control. I think there are three positions to set from if I'm not mistaken, may be from there you can solve your problem. Good Luck

My toshiba tv only goes up to channel 12, when it reaches channel 12 it starts back at channel 1.

You will need to re-scan the channels, i don 't know where it is on the menu of this set. If you are on cable, you need to make sure your tv is set to cable tuning, or you cannot get channels past channel 13. Same is true for antenna if you are on antenna make sure you are set for this.

If it starts resetting, let it run an hr,then push exit again to get your remote back,it has to reset everything,keep trying, took me 3DAYS to get it right!!!!!!!!! the only thing I don't have working is the pic size button,Don't need that anyway.

Stuck on channel 2, "No Signal" and snow

Two things may be at play here. The tv might be only programmed for reception on channel 2 and will need to be re programmed to receive other channels.
Also try some basic troubleshooting on the remotes. Start with the remote that came with the tv. Replace the batteries try the "MENU" button. If you can get into the menu try to "autoprogram" the TV

I uncovered the problem. The "analog tuner" seems to have gone bad. The part is $25 -$36. The set can still be used however. I just removed the coaxial cable from ANT 1 in the back of the TV (this is what I believe has become defective)which was going to a VCR. I then just used composite cables(red,white,yellow)to bring the signal directly to the TV from the cable box, rather than the VCR. All works however, will replace the defective part.
