Question about Sony KV-20FV10 20" TV

1 Answer

I'm getting a great picture with my converter box, but no sound. I had sound up until the day the earth stood still and they switched over to digital. What could be wrong? Could the sound on the TV have died? I turn the converter box off and hook up the VCR and it gives a good picture but no sound. Wierd. When the screen goes to snow there's no snow sound. Where's my sound?

    I'll try this and let you know how it goes. Thanks.

    this (I think) and still no sound.

    I connected audio/video cables (red, yellow, white) from the box to the VCR; and another set from the VCR to the TV. I get no picture until I connect the antenna to the box and the box to the antenna port on the TV...then I get a picture, but still no sound.

    I tried running my VCR hooked up to my TV alone, without the box, and still no sound. Is this proof the sound in this TV is dead? If so, is there a fuse that could have blown when the digital went live?

    I hate to give in, but unless you have another pointer or so, I may be forced to buy a new TV.

    Thanks. Looking forward to your response.

Have a close look at the cables between the converter box and the television set. Perhaps one is damaged by a tight bend or has a damaged connector.

I'm getting a great picture with my converter box, but no sound.

This may sound like a rediculous thing to ask you to do, but I've seen these types of things happen.

With the antenna to the box and the box to the antenna port on the TV setup, go into the TV menu - audio section and make sure that the speaker is set to 'ON'. Also, make sure that 'SAP' mode is not on.

Try plugging headphones in the headphone jack and see if you get audio there.

You should also check the instructions for your digital box to see if there is any audio modes that may need adjusting.

Magnavox DTV converter shows no signal

do you have your converter box hooked up to an antenea? If so, if you move the antenea, then you may have to reprogram the channels through the converter box. This happened to us. So, we played around with the antenea until we found the most channels came through and marked the area around the antenea (you can use tape, or if you do not care a permanet marker like us. Note our antenea sits on top of our tv.) We have not had any trouble since. We marked the place for the antenea, in case someone moves it or so we can try to get more channels when the final switch happens. We gain a lot of stations, but lost only one.

Hope this helps,
The Gordons :)

European PS3 now in the U.S.

You need a TV that supports PAL.
Or, if you want to keep your TV, you need a PAL to NTSC converter.
Here's a list of converters.

Good luck with your PS3.

Zenith system 3 tv will not turn on

I'd say just get a stereo system (amplifier) or something like that, and hook your cable box, vcr, converter or whatever you have right into that. That's what I've been doing for years. Most cable boxes and satellite boxes will control the main volume that goes to the sound output, or you can get a digital stereo with a remote to control the volume that way.
