Question about Sony KV-32S25 32" TV
Have a Sony TV, Samsung DVD, and Panasonic VCR. Television cable (coax) runs into the VCR then the TV. The DVD player I used the (Yellow) video cable with the two (Red & White) audio cables and plug into Video 1 on the TV (backside). I changed DVD players and the new one doesn't work. When I switch the DVD player, the screen is split and fuzzy. I tried using an S-video cable from the DVD to the TV - same result. Even switched to the Video 2 input on the TV as well. Turned VCR on and off in case of interferrence. Ideas?
If the new player you hooked up is causing the spit screen then you have to go into the set up menu in the DVD player and take it out of prograssive scan.. Its in the wrong fornmat for your TV set. good Luck PS please dont forget to rate this.

If Techmans's solution does not completely cure the problem, it nay be necessary to buffer the AV or Scart lead as I have done. I am using a spare Toshiba VCR which has two scart input/outputs. The scart lead from the DVD (Yukai) goes to the Toshiba VCR and a second scart from the VCR goes to my digital satelite reciever. Without this `buffer' I get a very fuzzy picture. I believe it is caused by instability. The VCR must be out of standby and set to scart input. The coax aerial lead is connected in the usual loop through way to the DVD, Panasonic VCR, and TV. When I get the time I will try a large ferrite ring round the scart lead instead of the buffer.

Playing any source on Chan 3 requires RF coax cable connects hook-up.One is in from source box, other is out to tv.I think you have the coax cables reversed!.......T.

How long have you owned the tv? You have two options though your best bet is to locate your nearest authorized service center to have the tv repaired.

While there are other possibilities, this is a problem which is commonly caused by bad solder connections that form in the tuner. When you're using the video sources the tuner is out of the picture (sorry, I couldn't resist a pun) so you don't see any problem. It's relatively easy to fix, but it means removing the tuner from the board inside, opening the tuner and resoldering the bad connections. This is a nice TV, so it would be worth getting an estimate for the repair. Because of the time involved, many technicians would rather simply pull the tuner and put in a replacement. See if you can find one who will repair the tuner instead. I always did when I was on the road, and it didn't really take that long. It saves the cost of an expensive part.
