Sony Trinitron TV Model # KD-28DL10U - Freeview problem since Aug 5

My elederly mother has the above named TV which she bought in July 2004. It has worked well - until two weeks ago when the Caradon Hill transmissions site in Cornwall performed changes in readiness for the digital conversion in 2009.

It possibly needs retuning...

I have tried to retune her TV but find the Auto Tuning function greyed out and inaccessible. In Setup I only get AV Preset and Detail Setup - but not what I need.

U have searched on-line for a manual - but this Sony model needs very elusive and nothing matches exactly.

Should I phone Sony tech support - or can you suggest what to do?

Thanks

    yup me too, not sure why its happening, but its frustrating. I've been getting the warning telling me that i'm missing out on channels, but then it doesn't let me tune them because a number of the options under the menu are grayed out.

Hi,

I am searching for the manual for this TV (can't find it yet) because mine has gone on the blink - the led light just flashes green and red when it is turned on - no picture.

However, I think I can solve your problem - I seem to remember that you can't retune the TV using the remote - you have to press one of the buttons under the front panel.  Then it gives you the option to align the picture - and then it asks if you want to auto tune.  If that doesn't work the hold the button in when you turn the TV on.  Looking at the TV a think it is the second button from the left - obviously I can't try this myself.


Hope this helps.

Sony Trinitron KD-28DL10U switched off suddenly to standby mid programme and won't come back on.When trying the remote on I can hear it click on and immedietly off again.Switched off at set and socket and...


Hello

In time as the Sony Trinitron ages it begins to have power issues. While this can be true of most tube televisions it's the rate and severity at which this happens to Trinitrons that makes it particularly of note. Many Trinitron owners have complained of the Trinitron set turning itself off randomly and frequently. Some sets have failed to stay on for longer than a few minutes at a time. Eventually some sets will not turn on at all. These problems grow more severe with age.

Check the power cable running from the Sony Trinitron 32. Make sure the cable is completely inserted into the power connection on the rear of the TV as well as the local power outlet.

Disconnect the power cable from the electrical outlet, then plug it into a different connection. It is possible to electrical outlet has died, forcing you to obtain a power current from a different source.

Check the cable connection running from the cable/satellite receiver or VCR. If the TV is on but no picture is on the screen, the problem is most likely due to a connection issue.

Power off the cable/satellite receiver, then press the "Video" button on the remote control to switch the Trinitron 32 to the video input signal. Turn on the cable/satellite receiver and the programming now loads onto the television screen.

Digital switchover


I also have the Sony IDTV KD-28DX4OU Digital TV.After the digital switchover I lost BBC1 and BBC2 despite retuning three times.
I contacted Digital switchover people (useless) and they passed the buck to Sony.I contacted Sony and they said they cannot fix the problem and that I should get a digital set top box. So the £650 I spent on integrated Digital TV has been wasted.If like me your cheesed off with this then I suggest you complain here

Sony WEGA KD-32DX50 U Tuning problem


This is answered on the sony support pages see
http://www.sony.co.uk/section/contact
and then enter 're-tune digital channels' in the search by keyword box for the explanation.
It basically needs a software upgrade which will be downloaded free if you've still got a freeview channel - but if you've lost them all you'll need help - anyway it's all explained by sony.

Sony FD Trinitron KD-34XBR960 34" TV


Our set turns itself off by itself. Prior to this happening, it goes to a green screen. It usually happens after the set has been on for a couple of hours. We bought the set in April, 2004 and the warrantly has now expired. The longer we keep the set on, the more it turns itself off. Is this a tuner, on/off problem or the tube? Any estimates for repair?
