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: Audio has a lot of static

You can possibly diagnose the problem by trying a different speaker,it does not have to be the same shape as the original but it has to have the same amount of resistance (ohms),radio shack might have one that you can try or one from a broken radio ,if you use one with different value it might not sound as loud but we are trying to see if you hear the static or is gone.You need to unplug the unit from the wall,remove the back cover and locate the speaker,disconect the wires and reconect the one to try then plug the set and turn it on,the antenna will need to be reconected too.Is the most simple test you can do without getting in too deep.Let Us know how it goes by a way of a new question or if you need more information.

Dear sammy5,
Stop by any TV repair shop in your area, and ask to borrow a used original Sony remote, they may require a small deposit; access the menu, perform your set up, then return it. Or you could buy a universal Sony remote from Walmart that should work just fine, for about. $7.00.

Hope this helps.

Hi,
Check in the menu to see if the audio is on SAP. If it is change it to Stereo. Hope this helps

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: Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-24FS120 24" TV Color changes

Try turning down (off) the color during such an episode. If the image is tinted pink or green instead of black and white when you do this,you have either an intermittent short in your CRT (tube), which is terminal,or a gun drive problem, which may be repairable. If you're feeding it component instead of composite signal,it may just be a bad connection of the B-Y cable.

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.
