Question about Televison & Video
After cablevision hooked up my Dad's Other TV's, something happened that keeps a signal from comming out of the cable box. All I get is snow, have it on channel 3, the conections are correct.
Tried things in manual, but the menu does not seem to be getting me to the right place.
SOURCE: can't get any tv reception
How do you expect a picture, without any Signal input? Just get any Rabbit Ears Indoor Antenna. Ore, if u wanna first try out, just push a length of Electrical Wire approximately 3-4 feet long into the Antenna socket at the rear of the TV, and then do Auto search. You will be able to view a few local channels - tho a little grainy. If u are satisfied, good, otherwise, then get an antenna.

Either that of your tuner block is acting up. Most Sonys of this production year uses a tuner block that requires 33VDC tuning supply. It has been known for this zener to fail or the capacitor parallel to it. At times, it could just be the tuner block itself.
Should you venture a DIY, it would be to your advantage to have access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings.. It further requires familiarity with electronic components and circuitry, use of a DVM and a soldering iron. Should you be uncomfortable going this route, then perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified professional
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
