If you have confirmed that there is cable signal but the Sony TV does not sense it, then perhaps the problem is internal to the TV. Primary suspect would be the tuner block/assy and/or its B+ supply. Often there would be two (2) voltages required; 12VDC & a 33VDC (varying). In some instances it could just be the zener diode.
The above of course would require a fair familiarity of electronic components/circuitry and safety procedures, use of a DVM and a soldering iron. It would be to your added advantage access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings. Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of a qualified professional.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

It is very possible that the tuner and IF modules have failed. On more rare occasions, the supply voltage to these modules may be missing because of failed components in the regulator circuit that feeds the front end area.
Some other areas of failure can be the uPC controler may not be addressing the front end functions, or the input switching control is not working properly.
The mentioned problems would require an experienced TV tech who has the service manuals, and the tools and facilities to troubleshoot and service your set.
If you decide to have the set serviced ask for an estimate. It may be expensive to fix.

I had the same problem and had the cable guy out and everything thinking it was my box. I figured it out by myself here is what i did to fix it. I have the vizio 32 inch hooked to an hdmi cable and through the cable box i had the aspect ratio on 1080i and i should have had it on 720p once I switched it I havent had the problem since.

SOURCE: "Failed to receive broadcast"
On your TV remote,press "INPUT".It is hard to find,but it should be there.Select"TV" and press"ENTER" button.I believe it is on the top of the list.On some cable boxes you have to select channel 3 and use the cable box remote to change channels.Also,make sure your TV antenna setting is set to "Cable" from the "Air/Cable"(Antenna setting).You will have to read your manual to find out how to get to this menu.After that do a "Ch Search"[Channel search].This automatically searches for all available channels and stores them. It will take some time.You will see the channel numbers as it does it's search.This is done so when you press channel up and down keys it will only go to next channel available and not to one with no signal.Hope this is of some help.
