Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-34HS420 34" TV

1 Answer

Sony 34HS420 The buttons on the television suddenly stopped working. For example, the channel up/down and the volume up/down does not work. Only thing I could think of is that when I moved the TV a few inches to the side to look at the wires for a receiver issue-it may have disabled these buttons. TV is 1.75 years old-which is out of warantee. Have you heard of this problem before? Would you recommend that i get a repair person to come in? Thanks for your help.

    I have a similar problem, but it's not just the remote. I can't change the volume or channel with the buttons on the front of the TV either.

This happens to a lot of remote controls. The buttons used the most of the first to go. The oils from your fingures get in unter the botton causing a bad connection with the sensors. The only solution is to get another remote.

I was able to program my Comcast remote to control the volume of my tv, but was unable to get it to change channels. Is there something else that I should do?

Controlling the TV power and volume is probably all you'll be able to do with that control. The Comcast remotes are meant to be used with their converter boxes, and normally people want to change channels on the box while the TV stays on the box output channel (usually 3, sometimes 4). The remote's channel up and down buttons and number keypad only send out the codes recognized by the converter box. You'll need to fall back to the TV remote if you want to control more than power and volume.

"snow" screen, full volume, remotes don"t work

good day
due to the long time the buttons were not used, they tend to get stuck and this causes channels eighter to stay in one station or continou scanning. it could be resolved by spraying WD40 on the buttons and press it many times then dry it before operating the unit.

Why does my RCA TV cycle through channels on its own?

Hi there!
I think your remote may be at fault. Liquid spill or sweat from the hand accumelates on the inside over some time and then becomes sticky. Some of the buttons may be permanently activated. Then other functions won't work. Have someone check it for you or if familiar yourself. Regards, JUS004
