Can't get a Direct Tv box to come in clear on my 36 in Sony Trinitron TV
I moved my direct tv box (our second box not main one) to another tv which is the sony 36 inch trinitron and it wouldn't come in clear it was fuzzy. all hookups were correct on it. Was it maybe some setup on the tv? or maybe you might know It is a 1998 model. thanks Joan Gibbons at email@example.com

U have pay cable or satalite service tv incomming broadcasting signal.Yes,than ur tv no need for a DTV converter.Those pay boxes will revert back to analog signal for ur analog tv.If u planning to get free over the air broadcasting,than u need a converter box to convert digital signal to a analog tv.
If u move the tv pictures come back on clear and good,no bruses to the pictures at all?Yes,this tv can be fix the PCB main board is cracks or borkens,could be mend to it by steal rods and solder joints by a tv tech. to fix it.But if the pictures have bruses in it.The tv picture tube is damage,sorry this tv garbage,not worth fixing.
You need the original remote to get in the service menu. Sounds like a deflection yoke problem Sony has an 8 page bulletin on this depending on ser# of tv. Est cost of repair is 250.00-300.00 not for the novice. Recommend calling Sony service center.
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.
There may be dry joints in the Line Stage where the Line Transformer is situated. The move may have loosened some components off the board. If not familiar with TV Electronics please refer to a repair technician. Regards and good luck, JUS004
With electronics sources or monitors,asking
a language preference is a first or early step
in initial programming.To analyze the source of
the "which language " request--dis-connect the
cable box temporarily and hook up signal direct
to tv.If ? is still there,the tv is asking it.
If ? is gone,then the source box was asking.
Any further assistance needed,please let me know.
