Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-36HS420 36" TV

1 Answer

My sony wega 36' circa 2001 will not receive cable signal.

It works if you use a cable box but not a direct cable plug from the wall. I don't have a box and need it to work.

If none of the r.f. inputs are working and you do not get local channels off of a pair of rabbit ears. You may have a bad tuner. Which you can get replaced for 125.00-150.00 or you could run the cable into a vcr input and use audio/video cables to connect to a video input on the tv and switch tv to that input and run the channels using your vcr. In other words, use your tv as a monitor and use the vcr tuner to pickup basic cable. Hope that takes care of it, Russmann.

My set is plugged into a cable box. the tv will not turn on either manually or with the remote.


Plug the power cord directly into a wall power outlet, and make sure that the standby light is lit (turn it on/off manually to see if anything changes). If there isn't any light, then it's most likely broken.
If the TV works again, being plugged into the power outlet in the wall, then the problem is with the cable box (i bet you figured that out too).

How do i setup my tv through surround sound without a cable box?


Unfortunately Without the cable box you will have to screw the coax cable into the coax input on the tv or You can screw the coax cable into a vcr and then plug the Audio / Video RCA plugs from VCR out to TV RCA input (You will have to control the channels from the VCR and the volume from the TV remote)

first, be sure the cable outlet is working. If so then you have to reprogram the tv by doing a channel search in "analog" since it's no longer connected via a "digital" box. Just go to the tv menu, search channels(analog) and start.

Sounds like there is too much voltage going into the same outlet. Please keep in mind cable boxes as well as your tv hold a higher amount of voltage then your dvd player. If your tv is plugged into the back of your cable box, unplug that and just plug it directly into the wall. If not, get a power strip and plug it in that way.

Is there any way to connect basic cable to the tv without using a converter box or anything else


Recently, I dropped HBO with my cable company and there dont have a box. Since the Maxent 42 is only a monitor and doesnot have a tuner...there is no where to plug cable from the wall to the tv.
Solution...plug cable from wall to VCR/DVD and then use RCA cables (Red,White and Yellow cables) from output from VCR/DVD. works great.

We lost power the other night when it cam on there was no power to my cable box or tv the outlets still work because i plugged something else in them is there a reset button on the tv


Is the TV connected directly to the outlet in the wall or through a power outlet on the cable box? If so connect the TV directly to the wall and see at least if it does power up. If it does than the cable box is bad and will need to be replaced. If neither the cable box or TV power up when connected directly to the outlet then the possibility is you had a power surge that damaged both.
