Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-32FS120 32" TV

1 Answer

Favorites Keep Coming On

I have a sony wega KV32FS13. If you turn the channel, it stays for about 5 seconds, then the favorites flash and the channel changes to the last favorite channel. You go to the menu, and the menu keeps changing so fast you can't chose anything. I sent it off to repair the last time it did this, but they said it was fine. I unplugged it and left it unplugged for a week, that didn't work. I took the batteries out of the remote and bought a new remote, that didn't work. I plugged it in today, and now you can't change the channels at all on the tv itself and if you change it on the remote, it changes back to favorites! THIS THING IS A PIECE OF JUNK! Any suggestions, please respond to

Re: Favorites Keep Coming On

Check to see if the lower buttons are stuck. You should feel a 'click' when you depress them. If one of them is stuck... you found the problem. Now you need to fix it. All you need to do is pull on the plastic button just a little to give some spring back to it. Or try a needle with a bit of a hook on it. Side it in the right side of the button and pull the button forward. Just be careful not to pull it to far. Just enough to correct to position.
Do you spray windex on the face of the tube??

Program favorites on a digital stream converter box with the remote.

The last time I saved favorite channels, I had to go to my "On Demand" screen. Then, put it on the channel you want to add as a favorite. The icon I had was a "heart" and you scroll to the heart icon and click. It should add that channel to your favorites. An easy way might be when you're watching that channel, to hit "favorite" on your remote as the gentleman above suggested. I believe it depends on your Cable Provider and the type of remote you have. You can always call their technical support # and ask. They'd be happy to walk you through it.

Sony wega no signal on channel 3 and 4

The old VCR is most likely the problem...try using a different stereo VCR for your connection. You must be running this through a stereo for added sound:) Hope this helps.

Channel 5 is now 401

That depends on your tv and how it's set up. Usually you can memorize (or set up in the favorites list) the channels on any program you want

Front panel buttons and remote have stopped working.

Is the favorite channel menu a function that is normally accessed by a button on the remote?

If so, that button on the remote might be stuck.
If this is the case, the menu may at times pop up all by itself and other buttons on the remote and on the TV's front panel may not respond at all (it had happened on my remotes more than once).

Try to clean the remote control (the housing, rubber pad with knobs, circuit board) with ethyl alcohol, when you clean the housing, you should also clean the holes through which the buttons protrude, there might be some dirt that keeps the button stuck.

It may also be a stuck button on the TV front panel, so check these too.

Also, it could be something else, i just wrote the description of a problem and the solution which to me seemed most likely.

Hope you get it fixed.

You guys have the same problem.
Unfortunately bad CRT. You can get a tech to regenerate it and it'll work for another year or 5-8 month after that... garbage.
