Sony trinitron XBR2 32 " can't seem to get the cable working on it
Friend gave me this tv because I had an even older small portable. It was working fine at their house, didn't get knocked around or dropped or anything, not sure where to hook up cable wire...AUX; CONVERTER; VHF
Can't seem to get the cable to work on the tv and can't get the tv to set to channel 3, at first it just went from 40 to 117 then bounces back to 40, I tried the channel set (auto) but it still goes back to this. HELP PLEASE

You can hook up to either aux or vhf not converter. then with remote use ant button to select the one you are connected to. then do the auto search. Also can you get to 3 by pushing 3 and ent on the remote?

sony is very good about labeling model numbers even on older tvs. Check the back, under the unit, or even on top for a S/N and model number plate. If you can't find it, it is possible it fell off due to old glue on the sticker.
Press (on your regular remote for your satellite) the t.v. button, then press info, this worked for me and I tried everything. another viewer posted this solution and it worked great! this is not the original remote, it is the satellite remote.
Dear sammy5, Stop by any TV repair shop in your area, and ask to borrow a used original Sony remote, they may require a small deposit; access the menu, perform your set up, then return it. Or you could buy a universal Sony remote from Walmart that should work just fine, for about. $7.00.
Id you have no TV repair experience, play it safe and take the set into an authorized Sony repair place to estimate the cost to repair. Yes I know it would be nice to repair, but how much do you know about component level printed circuit board repair? You will need to first get a service manual, know how to read a circuit diagram, thats a schematic, and know how every circuit works with each other to make the TV set operate. I do appriciate the fact you would like to repair this yourself, but there is no magic fix in most cases when it comes to electronics. There is circuit diagnosise involved. Best advice would be to call in a pro to assist you in these types of repairs. Good Luck
