Re: Reprogramming TV Stations

Don't you just hate that when the co-executors are so careless. :) (just kidding :)
You will need a remote but that's easy... Go here: and get a miracle remote for a sony and they are as if you purchased the original remote. We have serveral here in the shop for various brands and they access all the functions of the original for a fraction of the cost...
Then just go into the menu and do an auto-program from setup.
Have a great day!

Can not tune tv since change over

The KV-32FS100 only has an analog tuner (NTSC). Unless there is a low-power analog station still broadcasting in your area, you will not be able to watch OTA stations. (I've got one in my area that barely comes in.) If your local cable still sends an analog signal, you won't need a set top box to watch that subscribed service.

Otherwise, you need a set top box to watch TV. A digital to analog converter (the boxes that were available with the government coupon before the switch over) will give you over the air stations. The basic models only provide SD output; there are a few HD models available. Otherwise, you can use a satellite reciever, cable box (for digital cable service), or something like the Boxee or Sling with tuner. (There are a few different models of the Boxee; one added a tuner with a USB dongle. The newest model of the Boxee has the ATSC tuner built in.)

Note: OTA digital signal quality is either a strong enough signal for the tuner or no signal will be present. You need to point the antenna in the correct direction to receive the signal from your local transmitters. The type of antenna and its placement will also change the number of watchable channels. You can use or to get more information. Antennaweb assumes an outdoor antenna but gives a conservative list of stations. If the signal is split to several devices, you may need an amplifier to get a watchable signal. (Sometimes amplifiers fail and you won't receive any stations, so test without the splitter or amplifier by using a direct cable to one TV.)

I hope this helps.

"no signal" on display, just static

Check the input selections, and make sure that the selection is right. Try connected to external antenna, select the input to TV, and make an auto-tune function, and see whether all the stations can be received or not. If not, the tuner of the TV has to be suspected.

Your vertical IC will need resoldered. And check near this IC for bad capacitors. And any and all grounds where there are heat sinks attached to other transistors and ICs. This should restore your TV. Find a hobbiest or TV tech to pull the board out for repair!

TV won't "talk" with satellite cable

Try to see if you have 5volts for your EEPROM. If the voltage is normal try to replace your EEPROM or try to reprogram it. Your EEPROM is corrupted so that's why it will not store data.

Digital TV Stations

The term digital in this case is the mechanism used to tune in stations. Rather than making adjustments using a front dial to fine tune the stations, there are digital circuits that will lock in the station. The "digital" stations you are referring to now are the over-air digital broadcasts what use a different method for transfering the signals over the air. These stations now broadcast a digital stream of information rather than an analogue TV signal. If you are using an antenna for receiving these over-air broadcasts, you will require a converter.

Tv repair

First, you need to get the TV to work then worry about the remote. The TV will power on/off using the power button on the TV but thats it. You can try whats called a 'hard reset'. Unplug the TV from the wall and anything connected to it for 4 hours. Then plug everything back in. The manual is on the website:
