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.

How do i program my channels


Hello
Your Toshiba tv can be automatically tuned to all stations. The procedure follows.

Programming channels automatically


Your TV can automatically detect all active channels and store them in

its memory. After the TV has stored the channels in its memory automatically,

you can add or erase channels manually.


To add channels automatically:

1. Press MENU, then press "left arrow" or "right arrow" button to display the SETUP menu.


2. Press "Up arrow"or "down arrow" until the TV/CABLE

selection is highlighted.


3. Press "left arrow" or "right arrow" button to highlight either

TV or CABLE, depending on which you use.

If you use an antenna, choose TV.

If you use cable, choose CABLE.


4. Press "down arrow" button until the CH PROGRAM selection is highlighted.


5. Press "left arrow" or "right arrow" button to start channel programming. The TV will automatically

cycle through all the TV or Cable channels (depending on which you

selected), and store all active channels in the channel memory.

While the TV is cycling through the channels, the message

"PROGRAMMING NOW-PLEASE WAIT" appears.

6. When channel programming is complete, the message "COMPLETED"

appears.
7. Press CH UP or DOWN button to view the programmed channels.
OK.

Why does my RCA TV cycle through channels on its own?


this is the same type of problem happening with other rca models and I know it is the EPROM CHIP but why this is failing is either because of design flaw , dirty enviroment that they were made in , to much voltage or current to the chip or too much of a draw from the chip causing it to fail . Or even a random frequency from the IR sensor or its circut I'm still investigating and testing.
leave the tv unplugged for at least 3 weeks durring this time resolder any solder that don't look good , I did this and it lasted for about 6 months(always plugged in to the wall) before it started doing it again. model # 27v412t

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.

SPECIFIC FIX FOR GE 32GT660


I have the same problem, except that it would turn on by itself and then start changing channels. I had a can of compressed air and sprayed the button areas to see if there were sticking. It worked for a coupe of days, then started happening again. So I searched the web and found a response to a question someone else posted and the ensuing reply "most likely you have one of 2 things going on one is the foam between the buttons and the switches or you may have a switch getting leaky and would need replaced" Looks like I may have to taking the cover off and find some type of electronic cleaner, or replace the buttons. I find it odd that I got hits for the same issue with the same model. hhhhmmmmm?
