You more than likely have a cold solder joint, and moving the tv caused the hair line joint to crack open just enough to prevent current from flowing. But before you start soldering, give it a good inspection inside for a loose connector and/or wire. If no luck, take a solder gun and lightly hit the largest joints first, which are part of the largest component on the circuit board. It has a thick red wire coming out of it that goes to the tube. (Do NOT touch this red wire or disconnect it from the tube. It can still shock you, EVEN WITH THE TV OFF. This is a very high voltage with low current and probabliy will not kill you, but it will hurt very badly, so just be careful and stay away from the big red wire coming out of the tube.) Then resolder all the larger chips, transistors, and capacitors. If still no luck, then resolder the hundreds of smaller joints.

SOURCE: Sony FD Trinitron WEGA TV Model Number KD27FS170 volume problem

I had the same problem with the volume in digital mode and found the answer here:

The actual solution is towards the bottom of the post and hard to read through, so I simplified the instructions below:

On your remote control (with tv off)
1. press Display, channel 5, Volume Up and then Power
this brings up the service mode (you will see some green text on your screen)
2. Press channel 2 to scroll through options until you see "Micro" in the upper left of your screen
(channel 2 cycles up through the options, channel 5 cycles down)
3. Press channel 1 to scroll through suboptions until you see "DIOF" appear under "Micro"
(channel 1 cycles up through the suboptions, channel 4 cycles down)
4. Press channel six until the default value (12:60) changes to 12:40
(channel 3 increases the value, channel 6 decreases the value)
5. Once the value has been changed to 12:40, press Muting and you should see red text in the upper right hand corner that says "Write"
6. Simply turn the power off and back on for the change to take effect. Your volume problems should now be fixed.

The front panel Tactile Switches probably need to be replaced. The part # of the switches is 23344507. You can order them through Encompass Elect. 800-638-3328.
Hope this helps,

SOURCE: Orion TVD2710. Lost remote, can't change signal input

I would suggest you try to find a universal remote that has an "input" or "source" button and program that one to your tv. By pressing the "source" or "input" button, it will change the input to the tv. I hope this helps! -Der Strom

Are you using a remote control or the switches on the TV?

If using a remote;
First turn the TV off at the power point then wait for 10 seconds.
Then turn the TV back on
Then attempt top adjust the volume using the manual settings on the side or bottom of your TV, if that works then you may have a remote that either needs new batteries or does not work.?
Can you turn the TV on and Off with the remote control?
Can you change channels with the remote control?
If you can do both the above it would appear that the remote is working OK.

Does this fix the problem?

Tv is stuck on aux

Push the "menu"button on the front of the unit. That will get you into the menus to adjust any setting, like caption, language (but that one is tricky if yours happenend to be set to a language you couldn't understand :P), brightness settings and the such are there too. The one you are looking for is "input", change THAT setting. with either volume up/down +/-, or channel up/down (+) (-). In the menu, change the "input" selection to cable or whatever you are trying to watch on the tv.

Hope this helped some, if so, please rate, thank you!

When i turn the tv. on, the volume line appears all the way to zero. if i turn the volume up, it goes up but when i release the up button the volume goes down all by itself.

It sounds like one of the volume down buttons is stuck in the activate position. The same as if you were holding the down volume button continuously. It could be either the volume down button on the TV or the remote. I would try remove the batteries of the remote then adjust the volume by the TV buttons.

If the volume doesn't go back down then the remote is the problem. In order to fix the remote you may need to take it apart. This is normally easy to do just locate any screws that may be holding the remote together. If you don't see any screws then you will need to pry the two sections apart. Separate the circuit board and rubber buttons and clean them both with some rubbing alcohol and reassemble it. If it still has the volume issue you may need to replace it.

If the problem persists with the remote deactivated then it's the volume button located on the TV. That is a little more difficult. You can try wiggling the button or some canned air (used to clean computer keyboards) to blow it clean. However it may need to be disassembled to gain access to the switches for proper cleaning.
Hope this helps.

Volume is very low

Use the satellite receiver remote control to adjust the volume first. The receiver itself offers volume control and you probably have that turned down. Then you are trying to raise it with the volume control on the TV. This is raising the TV volume, but there isn't much sound there in the first place. Use the receiver remote, and you will probably see a volume bar. At some point it might say something like "best stereo" or a star might appear. If that happens leave the volume set there, otherwise just raise it all the way. Then control the volume with the TV remote, or program the DirecTV remote for your brand of TV, and the volume button should control the TV then.

Sony 36' TV Volume Goes up on own/Stuck on Video 2

There's a setting in the menu. I think it's called "smart audio". It's supposed to adjust the volume automatically for commercials. But I don't think it works that well. Give that a try.
