Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-36FS120 36" TV

1 Answer

Sony F Tinitron 36" Volume lower in regular TV mode, higher in dvd mode

OK, I am stumped. I have to turn the volume up all the way to get half of the volume I used to, but when I pop in a dvd, I get the full volume. Meaning, I'ts much quieter in TV mode, but loud as hell in dvd mode. Is it a setting issue?

Please help!

I have a dvr and dvd connected to the tv also, not sure if this is the problem, since the volume thing just started.

My volume on my sony tv wont go past 12 it will higher and lower but the maximum it will higher to is 12 have i maybe put a volume lock on it??


The only way the volume could be limited is if you were in the hidden tech menu----many of these sets have a setting there for initial volume level and maximum volume level.

Were you in the TECH menu for some reason?

I can tell you how to get in but you have to be very careful if you make any ADJUSTMENTS there--over 200 things can be adjusted there.

Let me know if I can help.

Sony FD Trinitron WEGA TV Model Number KD27FS170 volume problem


I had the same problem with the volume in digital mode and found the answer here: http://www.justanswer.com/questions/1m0ln-sony-fd-trinitron-wega-tv

The actual solution is towards the bottom of the post and hard to read through, so I simplified the instructions below:

On your remote control (with tv off)
1. press Display, channel 5, Volume Up and then Power
this brings up the service mode (you will see some green text on your screen)
2. Press channel 2 to scroll through options until you see "Micro" in the upper left of your screen
(channel 2 cycles up through the options, channel 5 cycles down)
3. Press channel 1 to scroll through suboptions until you see "DIOF" appear under "Micro"
(channel 1 cycles up through the suboptions, channel 4 cycles down)
4. Press channel six until the default value (12:60) changes to 12:40
(channel 3 increases the value, channel 6 decreases the value)
5. Once the value has been changed to 12:40, press Muting and you should see red text in the upper right hand corner that says "Write"
6. Simply turn the power off and back on for the change to take effect. Your volume problems should now be fixed.

TV PROBLEM


I don't know your set in particular:

Genericaly, there are some models of sets that have a pre-set level for the sound. Check in to the menus of the set if there is a setting for the audio level at turn on.

Some manufactures designed their sets so that the sound is at about 30% up when the set is first turned on. This is annoying. They did that because they had people turn on the set and call their tech support that their set had no sound. It turned out that the volume setting was at "0"!

Sony 36' TV Volume Goes up on own/Stuck on Video 2


There's a setting in the menu. I think it's called "smart audio". It's supposed to adjust the volume automatically for commercials. But I don't think it works that well. Give that a try.
