Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-32FS120 32" TV

HS500, white/light at top of screen

Hi. Need help/assistance please. For inputs 1, 2, 3, & 4, I am having issues with my satellite TV signal. When watching satellite, and the program has lots of white background, like on many commercials, the picture starts jumping a lot. When the background does not have a lot of white, the top of the screen, about 3 or 4 inches, looks considerably lighter than the rest of the picture.

When I have the satellite receiver off (no signal at all), I think the screen should be 100% black. But there is a thin horizontal line of "white" (about 2 inches tall), that moves from top to bottom. Almost like there needs to be an adjustment with vertical hold.

With input 5, where I have my DVD hooked up with component video cables, absolutely 100% no issues at all.

Any ideas what is wrong?

Maciso,

Thanks for your input. Far as I know, input 5 is component, but not HD. I think only input 7 is HD (looks like a computer monitor input). I don't think my satellite receiver has component outs. I'll double check, though. If it does have component outs, I'll have to rely on my A/V receiver to switch video inputs, since my DVD will have no place to input direct to the TV (I think there is only one component input on the HS500). Thank you again. Will post any results I come up with.

I believe input 5 is hd input wich is different from the others
you may want to try hooking the sat to any component input to find out if there is any difference

Sony Wega KV-30HS420 input problem


Just reset the TV to its factory settings and check. To do this you have to enter its service mode option. How to enter the service mode option is described in one among the posts at the site linked here.
But, before doing this reset, just connect the HDMI cable to the TV, and input an HDMI signal to it. If there is no input signal, the set will display as 'no input'. Check this first. If you wish to get further assistance from me, come over by FiXya comment.
If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Viewing it in "Mosaic" will make surf easy.

Have you already tried to power cycle all the devices? Unplug the power cable on all your devices for about 1 hour then plug it back in. Check if that fixes it.

I can hear the tv but no picture.. i remove the red, yellow, and white cord from the back of the tv to dust...pls help.. Apex tv brand


Hi! Welcome to Fixya!

If you are unable to view video on your television set, the issue may be that the TV's video input selection does not match.

The TV input source must match how the equipment for example DVD is connected to the TV.

* Plug the RCA cables(red,yellow,white cord) to the designated ports.
* Grab your Apex TV remote and attempt to cycle through the video inputs by hitting the "Input" button at the top of the remote multiple times.
* If you have used a DVD player or similar external device recently, you may have neglected to switch the video input back to the one assigned to your TV programming.
* Devices such as DVD players often reside on the AV 1 or AV 2 video input, and failure to switch back off of one of these will result in a dark, soundless screen when attempting to view cable or satellite television.
* Cycle through the inputs until you land on your cable/satellite input once more, which should result in an immediate restoration of picture and sound.
* If it does not, approach your Apex TV and look over the A/V cable connections. The A/V cable has two sets of prongs, one on either of its ends. Each prong is either red, yellow and white, and plugs into corresponding A/V ports on the back of the Apex TV and the back of your cable or satellite box. Make sure the ports and prongs are color-corresponding and have not been switched up.

Thank you for using FixYa. Keep me posted. :

I own a rca tru flat model 27F520T and the tv signal is via a starchoice statelite reciever. I recently purchased a Toshiba DVD SD7200. I am trying to view dvd's with the hook up to the statelite...


Try this steps
On the backside of your satellite receiver, you will notice a bunch of connections. If you already have your coaxial satellite cable connected to the INPUT on the receiver, leave it connected. Disconnect and remove the cable connecting the receiver to the television.
Grab your A/V composite wires and insert them into the Audio/Video OUTPUTS on the back of the satellite receiver. These are color-coded connections--red to red, white to white and yellow to yellow. The red and white connections are your audio feeds and the yellow is for your video.
Look on the backside of your DVD/VCR dual recorder. You will see similar connections. Connect the other end of the composite wires to the Audio/Video INPUTS on the DVD/VCR dual recorder.
With a second set of A/V composite wires, connect one end to the DVD/VCR dual recorder's A/V OUTPUT and the other end to the television's A/V INPUT. Again, be sure to follow the color code. Also, if your television has more than one available input, be sure to know to which one you made the connections (A/V 1, A/V 2, etc.)

Next, tune your television to the proper input channel. Look on the television's remote control for a button that is labeled "Inputs" or "A/V." Press it until you see the correct A/V channel appear on the screen. If you made your connections in A/V 1, then the TV should display "A/V 1" in the corner
.
Now, just turn your equipment on and settle back to watch your favorite show or DVD

My Zenith C32V28 television does not display the top and bottom of the picture. I phoned Zenith tech support who told me that it was the satellite signal. I called the satellite provider who advised me it...


This is applicable to Bell Television Services (Canada)
I solved the problem myself after two calls to both Zenith and Bell Television satellite service. On the bottom left of the Bell remote control there is a * (STAR BUTTON). Press this * button and within two seconds you must press the channel change button up or down. This will do two things. One; it changes the channel; and also changes the ratio of the satellite signal. There are three satellite signal ratio settings. Try this when you are tuned to a TV channel such as BNN (Canada) (Business News) or The American channel which has a stock ticker usually displayed along the bottom of the TV screen. Select the ratio (setting) that allows the stock ticker to be displayed......hope this helps.........Jim McP

What to do if you have an all snowy picture (blue screen or the TV displays unusable signal-no signal or no sync)
1 – If you are using a digital cable box or satellite receiver (make sure it’s on) and be sure your TV is set for either CH3 or CH4 (which ever you usually view it on). If you usually view it through video inputs (video1 or 2 etc.) make sure the appropriate input is selected.
If you still don’t get a signal see if you get picture using the DVD or VCR (if available) if you do than plug the satellite or Dig. Box temporarily into the place of the DVD (unplug DVD) you may have to use some A/V cables (RCA yel./red/wht like the ones on the DVD) to hook to the tv from the sat./dig. box. If you get a signal then the sat./dig box is ok. If not the Sat./dig box is not sending a signal and is either defective or needs to be rebooted (unplug wait 5 min try again).
2 – If you are using standard cable or antenna (source) if possible check that the source is good by connecting to another TV. Otherwise try running the source into a VCR and then out to the TV using video inputs (RCA yel./red/wht like the ones on the DVD) and then selecting the appropriate input. Try seeing if the VCR plays using standard CH3 (or CH4)
If the VCR plays on video input but not when connected to CH3 (CH4) then the tuner of the TV may be defective – see if you can use the VCR to change channel using the VCR remote.

When you have the back off, look for the flyback (high voltage) transformer. This is the part that has the thick red wire protruding from its top which attaches to the top of the picture tube with a suction cup. On the flyback there are 2 controls, the bottom one is screen and the top one is focus. Turn the bottom control (screen) down (counterclockwise) until the white lines go away and the brightness looks normal. Then turn the top control (focus) until the picture is nice and sharp. If the F connector has been pulled out and the TV has RCA (red, white, yellow) jacks, use those jacks and set the TV to INPUT.
