May have a corrupted eeprom which means you`ll have to call a tech, one thing you can try is;
Un-plug the tv`s AC power cord, wait 30 seconds, plug back in and pray, this will set re-set the micro to the default mode which may have gotten glitched by a power surge, hope it works for you.

    that really depends on where you live, costs more to keep a shop operating in say NYC vs St. Louis, doesn`t cost ya anything to call the local shops with your model number and symptom and ask them for a "ball-park figure", did you try un-plugging your tv for 30 seconds and then re-trying it ? do you have it hooked to a cable box or straight cable to the tv? Might want to try re-booting the box if you have one, same as tv, un-plug box for 30 seconds, plug back in and WAIT until clock re-appears on screen, good luck

No channel set up

Hi, try pressing the "closed caption" button on the remote. I hope that works. If this doesn't work try getting your TV's SE-R0305 Operating manual and reading through it and it might be able to help you. You will be surprised at how much information is in the TVs manual.

I have a sony (model KP61V75) a split screen came on (two pictures) and I cannot figure out how to get it back to one screen. Im going crazy!

Some television remote controls have a PIP OFF button, while others only have a PIP button that needs to be pressed repeatedly until the PIP/Twin-View window disappears.


  • Some Sony rear projection televisions have a FLASH FOCUS button that will turn off the PIP/Twin-View feature.

  • Some Sony universal remote controls, if programmed to operate a Sony TV, can disable the PIP/Twin-View feature by pressing the REC or ENT button.

  • If the original TV remote control is not available or is not functioning properly, auto programming the television tuner orperforming a power reset may deactivate the PIP/Twin-View feature.

  • If pressing the appropriate buttons on the TV remote control does not work, then the PIP/Twin-View window might be from a two-tuner cable or satellite set-top box. If this is the case, use the remote control provided with the set-top box to remove the PIP/Twin-View window.

The channel button on remote and tv wount work. it will not scan up or down. on either the remote or the tv

Did you check the batteries? If they're good, it might be broken, or you have the wrong remote.Try checking if its the VCR remote or the DVD player remote. If this doesn't help, then your remote has gone crazy.

Cant get the remote to turn tv on off or channels

hmmm.. Do you have another remote that will operate that tv, try that remote and see if it will turn on and off the tv. IF you bought this new remote because your old one quit working it may be the tv and not the remote. If you have a camera phone you can check your old remote. Turn on your camera and aim the remote at your phone, look at the picture on the phone and press the power button on the remote, you shuld see the front of the remote flash, if you do then it is the tv causing your issue.

How do you do a mackro for turning on several devices

The owner's manual give excellent instructions on how to do this.
You can find the owner's manual at the website for Universal Remote Control.

A basic overview:
  1. Enter macro setup mode.

Have you tried to access the menu features and tried to retune the stations on digital, or are you hooked up for analog.
If you don't know about what i speak, give me a yell. I believe my remote sensor card is bad. While this might explain why you can't turn yours off, it would not explain the blank picture. If the menu does show, i would think the picture tube is O.K. if the menu does not show, there are some other things to look at.
