Sony WEGA KV-27FS120 ...shows only channels from 1-13 using the Channel + button but displays others when the numbers are entered manually

I have a Sony WEGA KV-27FS120 and i am encountering a strange problem. When i use the remote to surf the channel it only go until channel 13 and if increase the channel by 1 it goes back to 3. Basically it only shows me 1-13 channels if use the increase channel button. However, i can get channels above 14 by pressing the respective numbers. Like if i press buttons 2 and 4 on the remote i am able to see channel 24 and similarly others 3 and 6 will show me channel 36. I am not sure what the problem. I have tried different remotes and it gives me the same problem. Any suggestion on the this problem ?

Doesn't sound like a remote issue as much as an internal programming problem. If you block a channel due to a bad signal on antenna mode, it'll skip it unless you drop the block. The same happens with "autoprogramming" for cable. Bad channels are blocked due to weak signal.
Maybe you should try auto programming through the TV's initial set-up menu? You can get your television to reset to factory settings by
1. turn the tv on
2. hold down the reset button on the remote
3. press the power button on tv (tv will turn off and on)
4. release the reset button.
5. should be in initial set-up.

Sounds like it needs to be switched to cable mode. go in to your menu look for something like STD Cable.

My Sony WEGA is no longer displaying the channel number. I think my house sitter changed something by mistake. I've read the manual but come up with nothing.


Yeah, the setting that you are looking for in the menu says channel label. If you open the menu with the remote, you should be able to access that setting.
