No picture

  1. 1 Make sure the power cord is properly plugged into a wall outlet if your TV is not powering on.
  2. 2 Make sure the video and audio cables connecting your TV to external devices are secure if you are experiencing a fuzzy picture or no picture.
  3. 3 Reset the parental password if you forgot the password and are unable to view certain programs. To do this, click "Menu" on your remote control and use the arrow keys to select "Parental Controls." Enter the master password, which is "4357" to reset the password.
  4. 4 Turn off the caption vision option if you are seeing a large black box on your screen. To do this, click the "Menu" button and select "Setup." Select "Caption vision" and press the "Plus" button on your controller to set the option to "Off."
  5. 5 Check the "TV/Video" setting if you're not getting a picture on your screen. You may have inadvertently selected a video input that isn't active. Press the "TV/Video" button on your remote to cycle through video inputs.
  6. 6 Alter the brightness settings if you are experiencing a poor picture or no picture. To do this, press "Menu" and select "Video." Increase the brightness settings to see if the picture begins to appear.
  7. 7 Make sure the volume is not muted if you are experiencing a clear picture but no sound. Press the "Mute" button on the remote control to turn mute on and off.
  8. 8 Power cycle your Sony Wega if it's frozen or not responding to your remote control. Unplug the power cord and wait a few seconds. Plug the power cord back in.

Can't select front input without remote

I had the same problem, had a universal DirecTV remote that was able to control the volume/mute, power and channels (both TV and DirecTV), but the input button didn't work. There was no av/tv button on the front of the tv, and the autoregistration of channels didn't pickup the gamecube on the AV channel. What solved it was simply to press "00". I couldn't believe it, but it was that simple. Hope this helps you like it helped me, since the tv was not going to be of much use since we were using the RCA inputs, not the coax. Didn't want to try to conver the RCA to coax either.

Channal selector down

Sounds like it is changing to another video mode that has no input so the screen is blue. On many tv's the channel buttons also act as video input button. This should happen with the buttons on the tv. If you are using the the remote I am not sure why it is acting like a video input button. Try changing video to tv with one and changing the stations with the other. I take it you are watching antenna tv and not using cable box or satellite. If this does not work and you have old vcr just use it as a tuner to change your channels.
