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.

I dont have a remote and im trying to set up a digital tv antenna but the only channels im getting is 3 and all the video inputs. How to i program channels


Hello,

Usually channel 3 is picked up on a channel scan when there is an input device connected to the TV via a Coaxial Cable, thus using only channel 3 on the TV itself and using the Digital converter box to tune in the channels.

The TV will need to be Digital ready to connect only a Digital Antenna to it and programmed to receive the Digital Broadcasts over the air. If you are certain that this TV is Digital Ready (TV manufactured from 2009 to the present) you can use the menu button on the top, side, or front of the television, then use the channel / volume buttons to move around the menu, and the input button as the enter button.

You will want to select Antenna (ATSC) signal before starting the auto program so the TV will be able to recognize the Digital Channel Broadcasts.

Hope this helps!

Cheers,
Scott

I need to set digital channels on my Sony Trinitron system. It will not auto-program on digital on analog. model KD-27FS170


Hi,

You need to switch the TV to digital mode before you run the auto-program. Press the "DIGITAL/ANALOG" button on your remote before you run the scan. After switching to digital mode please complete the following steps to run the auto-program:

1. Press the "MENU" button on the remote
2. Press the right arrow ">" button on the remote once to highlight "CH" (looks like 3 boxes)
3. Press the "+" button (in the center of the arrow keys) to select.

You will now be in the "Digital Channels" menu. If you are in a menu called "Channel Setup", you are in the wrong mode. You should exit the menu, press the "DIGITAL/ANALOG" button on your remote and start again at step 1.

4. Press the down arrow on the remote to highlight "AUTO PROGRAM"
5. Press the "+" button (in the center of the arrow keys) to select.

The auto program will now run. This could take a while to complete but a progress bar is displayed so you can see how far it has gone.

If you can't get this to work or need further assistance, please post back.

Regards,
BElectric

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 www.digitaluk.co.uk/2kequipment.

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.

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
