Question about Televison & Video
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.
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.

The first thing is to try going in the tv's menu
It should be similar to this:
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

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.

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.
