Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-20FV300 20" TV

1 Answer

TV automatically switches to channel 666.

All of the sudden, telivision starting changing channels on its own. it would go to 6 then 66 and display turned to 666. Thought it was a remote control problem so took the batteries out of it and same problem occured. Tried covering remote control receptor with finger and that only delayed the switching. this morning, I was able to get it to stay on one channel but the display went back to 666.

    Thanks for the response. Not only did I take the batteries out, I put the remote in a different room. No difference. Also there is nothing new that was brought into room. So if it is a software problem, is that something that can be fixed by local repair shop or will the repair bill be more than the value of the TV?

Sounds like a bit of a devil(lol),could be interferance from a device causing this problem,have you got a flourecent light in the room,this is known to interfere with the tv's remote sensor,also try taking the batteries out of the remote???
Failing this it could be a fault in the tv,an i.c. has become corrupted and will need software to be re-installed but this is the worst case scinario.

I have Onida TV Model 21 inch , I accidentally enable the features of volume lock, hotel mode and channel lock and I cannot reset the same. Due to this, I cannot increase volume of telivision


MIGHT WORK IF YOU:
Turn off tv with remote, that is standby, then turn off tv with switch or unplug from wall. Wait a few minutes until led lights go off on tv. plug tv back in. try pushing vt on remote and power button on tv at same time.
If this doesn't work try contacting a local retailer, they always have a list of codes for their salesmen.

Same thing... suddenly will not "allow" one channel to be seen


go to tv menu, do an "autoprogram" and it will select all available channels.
You can also do an add/remove channel and manually delete the channels you know you don't have.
You can also change your tv from air to CATV (cable) On cable tv you can still get all the air channels and Fox just the numbers will be different, but you may have a better signal

Suddenly the Tuner mode reports "No Signal"


Just a solution.

I attached a video recorder., and selected the video channel.
I was able then to see the channels through another AV slot extension.
Then I reset the TV to factory settings.
Samsung full HD reset code is 0000.
I used the original remote control.
I pressed the button TV/DTV to switch between mode., and from the menu I started
the option to scan the channels automatically.
Because the VCR was still connected it looks like it was forced to admit the channels.
I turned off the VCR and click on the TV the remote control for a known channel ( alternative control used) and surprise ... The TV started to react according to expected.
I disconnected then physically the cabling from the VCR and plugged in directly on back on the
wall connector. All is ok.
What was the reason ?
My wife dropped the alternative remote control ( not the original one) on the floor, and apparently an strange code was sent to the TV., which suddenly displayed " No signal".
I hope this can work for you.

Kind regards
Sanchez

Tuner doesn't work


I think this may be more of a fault with the uPC area on the main board than a tuner failure. It is possible to have both at fault, but this would be rare.

The numbers you see on the screen is from a pre-scaler circuit that drives a font generator in one of the IC's near to the uPC area. If you see the numbers changing this more from the uPC than from the tuner iteslf.
