I did not know that the Sony FS series has digital capability. This is supposed to be the most basic model of CRT flat screen TV that Sony made.

You can get a digital cable or satellite box that outputs analog baseband or component analog video and analog audio. You can then connect this box in to the TV set. The TV will then display the analog signal from the digital box.

If your cable or sat box is able to tune in standard channels, but cannot tune in the ones that are on digital service, then the fault is with the box, or the cable or sat system. This you should address to the TV service provider.

Digital switchover

I also have the Sony IDTV KD-28DX4OU Digital TV.After the digital switchover I lost BBC1 and BBC2 despite retuning three times.
I contacted Digital switchover people (useless) and they passed the buck to Sony.I contacted Sony and they said they cannot fix the problem and that I should get a digital set top box. So the £650 I spent on integrated Digital TV has been wasted.If like me your cheesed off with this then I suggest you complain here

Sony digital tv KD 32DX40U wont pick up digital signal

The tv is a 2k model - I have the same one, digital is now 8k so it won't work digitally anymore.

2K Equipment
  • All 2K-only products will stop working with the introduction of the 8K transmission mode at switchover.
  • 2K-only set-top boxes cannot be upgraded, but 2K-only IDTVs can be updated by adding a current set-top box or digital TV recorder.
  • A full list of affected models is on the Digital UK website at

Menu screen keeps appearing. Remotes no longer control the TV

Realized by avoiding scams like this website who want to cash in on frustrated electronics owners, and instead just talk to the manufacturer of my TV. Sony walked me through the problem and corrected it.

Nice try, almost had another one

Sony Vega Digital TV model KD-28DX50 U

the symptom is usually caused by a breakdown in the power supply circuit. in most modern receivers (transistorized and/or ic), it may also be caused by a breakdown in the horizontal deflection circuits (hor. oscillator, pre-drive, or drive circuits). supply voltages for the tuner, vif,sif, and vertical output are usually supplied by the horizontal output circuit. but if you doesnt know anything about these stuffs, better bring it to a qualified service technician
