Question about Sony KV-36FS17 36" TV

1 Answer

Sound pops and cracks on coax only.

The sound pops and cracks sporadically when using the coax cable input. Picture is great except when sound acts up and the causes lines in the picture. When input is from video 1 source which is the vcr or video 2 which is the dvd player there is no sound or picture problem. Would it pay to repair or just keep using and use vcr as turner?

While there are other possibilities, this is a problem which is commonly caused by bad solder connections that form in the tuner. When you're using the video sources the tuner is out of the picture (sorry, I couldn't resist a pun) so you don't see any problem. It's relatively easy to fix, but it means removing the tuner from the board inside, opening the tuner and resoldering the bad connections. This is a nice TV, so it would be worth getting an estimate for the repair. Because of the time involved, many technicians would rather simply pull the tuner and put in a replacement. See if you can find one who will repair the tuner instead. I always did when I was on the road, and it didn't really take that long. It saves the cost of an expensive part.

How do i hook up mono tv with eterxnal speakers with a dvr box


If the DVR has RCA-type connectors, yellow to yellow for picture, and white to white for sound. Tune tv to line input.
If the DVR supports outputting everything on coax, use a piece of coax cable, and tune tv to channel 3.
Your coax cable from wall has to go into DVR first, then out to tv.

Toshiba CN36X81 television.. NO Sound... Great Picture. Using the TV2 output of a DISH Network HD receiver... TV2 output is std def, coax output. Using a different TV I get picture and sound... but not...


IF coming in via, the "Dish" networked receiver, please check that this volume is turned way up, on the TV. and then control the the Volume, with the Dish Remote, often this is a problem, as one is turned down, and the other cannot turn that up, simply try syncing the Volume controls, UP on TV, control the Audio with dish remote. thats all i can think of. Check by feeding a signal IN from an AV, source, ie: Yellow, Video, & Red& White, Audio. Turn TV UP and check, IF it responds to this all is well. If NOT then you do indeed have a fault, with the TV.

I have no sound!


Are you using a cable box or is your input through the coax cable or antenna? If you are using a cable box with RCA connections make sure the Red and Black cables are securely plugged in both the cable box and the TV. Check to see if your TV has sound by going to the antenna input and select any channel and crank up the volume. If you don't hear anything you'll probably need a new TV.

How to set the telelvision to use a dvd,


when you ran the autoprogramming it scanned all the channels you are receiving.the dvd is probably plugged into a line or aux input on back of your tv.look for a input or source button on the remote. some tv's have more then 1 input source so be sure to scan thru all input choices.also if it is a dvd/vcr combo & if there is a coax out connection to your tv coax/rf input the tv and/or cable box should be on channel 3
hope this helps

No channels above 47


That works great except I can get the tuner to program any channels above channel47. Is this a limitation of this older model TV yes there is limitation in old tv. is there some setting I can change in order to get more channels using the tv tuner? in INDIA what we do is put a remote control ckt which gives us about 250 channels. of course we replace tuner also called hyper tuner along with remote ckt or replace whole kit which are cheaply available.& serves the purpose. hope this will help

Female coax connector in tv bad?


If your cable converter box has audio/video connections on the back of it,you don't need to worry about using that RF coax connector. Just hook it up the same way your DVD is hooked to the TV input jack. Get a 3-wire cable (yellow-red-white)hook it to the same colors on the back of the cable box and hook the other end to an unused input on the back of the TV. Then select that input with your remote and watch TV.
