Question about Sony KV-27V55 27" TV

Open Question

Sony KV-27V55 skips channel 3. Of course I need that to get my cable signal. I was just given this set, with no remote. But using the channel buttons on the set, it skips over channel 3. Any ideas? Also, I can't get my Verizon remote programmed for this TV. I've tried codes 0027, 11217, 0128, 0013, 0002, 0071, 0380, and 0152. I also tried the brute force method of forwarding through 200 times, but still didn't get it. If I can fix the channel 3 problem, I'll probably buy another universal remote.

SOURCE: my 15 yo sony tv. model KV-27V55 picture has gone

Cost for repair and the part isn't worth it old chap, especially when the holidays are coming around the corner and retailers are hurting for business.  Why not get a lighter LCD or plasma tele with better 1080 resolution then stress over trying to save this old dog? Off to the heap with it is what I say.

Try pressing Tv/Video on the remote control and see if it doesn't switch input modes. If it doesn't, follow these steps:

1) Press the menu button

2) Navigate over to Channel Setup

3) Move down to Video Label and select it

4) Make sure none of the video inputs are labeled "SKIP". If so then do the following

5) Highlight the input labeled "SKIP" and select it

6) Use the up and down arrows and you should see a different name for the input. This will enable the selected input to be used.

7) Exit the menu by pushing the menu button on the remote.

8) Press Tv/Video on the remote and you should see the other stuff (cable, vcr, xbox, etc.).
