Good Day, mopar69;

Try this and if does not work, call SONY TV with Model and Serial NUMBERS, this sounds like you may have a defective light engine, and they are having problems with them, and they , Sony, are covering that device.

Restoring unit to Factory Preset Condition

1) Power off the set (set is now in Standby Mode).
2) On the remote, Press DISPLAY, CHANNEL 5, VOL +, POWER.
3) On the Remote press CHANNEL 8, ENTER.
4) Wait until Initial Setup is displayed.
5) Turn off TV sets power by the Remote or Front Panel button.
6) WAIT AT LEAST 3 MINUTES UNTIL THE LAMP COOLS DOWNS BEFORE UNPLUGGING OR DISCONNECTING THE AC FROM THE TV. If the set is not allowed to cool down the lamp may be damaged by excess heat build up.

I hope this was helpful, Good Luck, big IRISH.

I think you are confusing the channel on the tv and the channel of the cable company that is not something that you can pick up with the scan tv, scan tv is good for picking up local channel meaning air channel that we get with a antenna only not the cable chanel

Somewhere in that menu (look carefully and scroll all the way down on each page) is a setting for format---set should have 4x3 (letterbox), 16x9 which is full screen for HD and may also have zoom and wide zoom.

There should also be a button on the remote for this.

No matter where I go or what I do I can not figure how to get my picture to fill the screan!! There is 2 to 3 inches on eiother side with NO picture. When I go to menu it does not help.


Hi, owning a 42 inch myself i can sympathize, try using your remotes "ZOOM " function-also try going with an antenna plugged directly into the cable connection on back of set-often times the cable/satellite providers programming is for whatever reason downgraded with the "letterbox " format, I know for a fact, have watched side by side satellite's local area channel and over the air H.D. digital broadcast's-the over the air was FULL screen, satellite was " letter Boxed " the networks however do switch back and forth a little depending on programme i.e.: some commercials are recorded in letter Box, while others have stations logo on either side of screen squaring it off. hope this has been of some help, Prodzilla

I cant keep the picture at full screen fom channel to channel


The reason for this is that the incoming signal is not always the same. Stations broadcast in different formats from 480i to 1080. If the bars top and bottom or side to side bother you then you'll have to stretch the picture (try different modes) to keep the picture screen full.

Fuzzy picture, oval shaped, scrolling up slowly


I would start by checking the large filter capacitors in the power supply. I can't be sure since I'm not seeing the set, but it sounds like you're describing AC ripple. In a 20-year-old set, some of those electrolytics will be drying out. A few replacements may take care of the trouble for you.

One channel fuzzy


Tis is an ongoing problem I seen increase alot over the past few months. From what I can gather, all the channels being broadcast over going from the analog to digital, there's no big suprise to anyone. However, the change from analog to digital is changing at a faster rate, so when you look at the TV some channels will be fine and others will have grey lines, fuzzy picture. The only solution-you need a TV with some kind of digital tuner. On the TV itself if the (TV has one) it will say "SD" or "ED" which stands for standard digital or enhanced digital.

Sound very much like you are in 16X9 mode with a 3X4 signal. That is not uncommon. Do you lose any information, top or bottom with a HD signal? Bink.
