1986 SONY TRINITRON COLOR TV KV20TS20 having trouble with cable connection

I have a 1986 SONY TRINITRON COLOR TV KV20TS20 that I am having trouble setting up for cable. The cable line is hooked into the TV but I still just get the regular channels and they seem to jump up and down, lots of static.

Help please?

SOURCE: TV Snow and Static Sound

Sound like its all cabled wrong So its from the source, (wall satalight Whatever ) to VCR in then VCR out to TV, Now when the VCR fires up it tunes the RF output to Chanel 4 and has a strong signal, that over rides just about every thing. Simply way to stop this is one of two ways, press the TV/VCR button on the VCR, or simply turn off the VCR to let the signal pass through.

SOURCE: tv won't scan channels when connected to cable tv

Hello
The first thing is to try going in the tv's menu
It should be similar to this:
Menu>setup>channel setup

once you find something similar, run the channel setup and it should add in the channels

If that doesn't work, screw on the cable wire, unplug the tv for a good few minutes, then replug the tv and it should automatically scan



Hope this helps

SOURCE: problem with HL-R6167W green vertical lines

You need to do an aggressive reset on the TV. This solved problem completely for me. You must unplug the TV when it is on. Repeat this several times until the TV is jolted back into the factory default settings. The issue is actually with the programming I believe. The clue was that the display worked 100% perfect in HDMI mode, and the problem only existed in the cable setting, no matter if wires were attached or not.

Again, do an aggressive reset to the TV by unplugging it several times while it is on. It may not register the reset at first because after all, the actual problem is a programming issue and it's having trouble recognizing commands in the first place.

Good luck!!

SOURCE: Sony KDS 50a2020. Tv Seems to Dull. not a setting.

Two possibilities:

1. The lamp. When did you last replace it? They will dim over time and lose focus, clarity, brightness and sharpness. If it has been 18-24 months, and this is your main tv, consider replacing it.

It's a F-9308-860-0. They go for about $175.00.

2. Let's say you follow my advice, put in a new lamp and the picture is still dim, dark, dingy and fuzzy? Then you, my friend, need a new Optic Assembly. The thing your lamp shines into and the thing that gives you a picture to look at. They can fail or wear out for all sorts of reasons--too many for me to type out now. But, suffice to say, if you have recently replaced the lamp (less than 6 months) and are experiencing a drop in brightness, consider getting on the phone with Sony. Even if you are out of warranty, your set is covered against Optic failure until June 30, 2010.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: green hue/tint

Need to do the alignment feature where it refocuses the light beams. Convergance. Look through the set up. Different magnetism and shaking of the set has thrown it off most likely. Auto focus maybe what its called.

If you were able to get it to work with one signal source but not another, the poblem may be with the foxtel cable rather than the tv. Was there a difference between the connection from the aerial antennae and the cable? Have you checked to make sure another tv works on the cable from that location?

Sony Trinitron kv-2966 tv will not start ,no standby light,makes start up noise high pitch.


Turn off tv and check all connections and unplug it from power supply. make sure that everything is connected tightly on the back of tv( cables and stuff) turn it back on, if you see a red flashing light or red solid light, chances are there might be a problem on the capacitor or wirings inside it.

Horizontal color line across the screen


Most likely a bad Vertical IC or bad connections on the vertical IC. don't continue trying it on. If you have a bad connection it could do more damage. You also could damage the CRT ( picture tube ). If you remove the cover and look at the bottom side of the PC bord with a good magnifiing glass you may see what looks like rings around the leads comming from the Vertical IC. The Vertical IC is mounted on a heat sink usually towards the front of the set looking from back. If you do see the rings around the leads try reheating with a solder iron. If this dosen't fix you most likely need a new IC.

Poor connection with DVD and tv


Try using the RCA split connect cables, it is a very short Y cable having one male and two female on the same connection. Then you just plug into them, you will delete one cable for each connection using this.
