Bright green 3 in the upper right corner of my TV

Hi: Does anyone know how to turn off the bright green 3 in the upper right hand corner of my tv? It appears that it is a setting called a channel label. When i go into the menu, under channel, i can see that the channel label says 3, and sure enough, there is a bright green 3 always displayed in the right corner, no mater which channel i am on.
i can't figure out how to turn this channel label setting off and get rid of the 3.
can anyone help??
thanks in advance!!

    Well here I am 4years later but just purchased a Sony TV. It had the number three in thr top corner as well. It is not permanent. Just press the display button on remote. If you are wondering what channel you are watching just press display to see. Then press again.

I've had this identical problem and the solution for me was; to turn off the TV, physically unplug it from the wall/power strip/surge protector, next press and hold the on/off button for a count of eight seconds or so (you may hear a crack sound like when you turn it on from a cold start, but it's okay if you don't hear it snap/crack/pop mine did ) then leave it unplugged for at least an hour, finally plug it back in, push the on/off button and yes you will see the green mean obnoxious three but in a few seconds it will disappear until you need to do this again.

I believe the "Caption Vision" is selected. By pressing the "Display" button on the remote it should toggle through the choices until "Display Off" appears. That should be all.

The volume of sony wega kv-sw29m61 set always to maximum when it turned on


On your remote control (with tv off)
1. press Display, channel 5, Volume Up and then Power
this brings up the service mode (you will see some green text on your screen)
2. Press channel 2 to scroll through options until you see "Micro" in the upper left of your screen
(channel 2 cycles up through the options, channel 5 cycles down)
3. Press channel 1 to scroll through suboptions until you see "DIOF" appear under "Micro"
(channel 1 cycles up through the suboptions, channel 4 cycles down)
4. Press channel six until the default value (12:60) changes to 12:40
(channel 3 increases the value, channel 6 decreases the value)
5. Once the value has been changed to 12:40, press Muting and you should see red text in the upper right hand corner that says "Write"
6. Simply turn the power off and back on for the change to take effect. Your volume problems should now be fixed.

Philips 23PF9966/37 color problem!


Most likely you can adjust it in the Service Alignment Mode (SAM).

Press 062596 followed by the STATUS button (upper left). Navigate to "White Tone", press the right key to enter and select "Normal" mode. Set the colors:

Red = 135, Green = 128, Blue = 133.

The "Cool" and "Warm" menus are deltas from the "Normal" settings:

COOL: R -3, G -1, B 5
WARM: R 2, G -3, B -13

Press the "MENU" button to return to the main menu, then the "Power" button to turn the TV off.

Sony kv-32s42 needs help.Tuner problems?


Hi Grasshoppa, I would venture a guess that your tuner is not at fault but most probably the logic circuits controlling it since as you posted, you can tune > get a good picture but "channel numbers in the upper right hand corner ...." If your intention is to use the VCR and thereafter change channel using the VCR, you may use the Audio/Video input. With an RCA 3 cable connector, connect the (Yellow) Video out, (Red/White) L/R Audio out of the VCR to the Video in &L/R Audio in of the TV. You don't need to set the TV to Ch 3 but rather select Video 1 or 2 or A/V. Hope this be of some help/idea to you. Post back how things are or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards
