Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-27FS100 27" TV
Several times now the "Do You Want Auto Tune" sign comes on the screen. If I press CH+ it runs through some channels but then stops and the message reappears. If I press CH- it either removes the message for 3-5 seconds or does nothing. -- We have tried changing the batteries but nothing happens. When I press the code reset button on Sony remote the buttons light up but the TV does nothing. I can not get the TV to turn on or off, control volume or channels. The satellite remote will change the channels and recall but now the on/off and volume don't respond. I have done everything mentioned in the Sony and Dish troubleshooting pages and need help. Thanks,
I am having the same problem with the "initial setup" screen flashing repeatedly/ intermittently. It's not a problem with the remote. In the research I have done online, it seems as though this is a common/known problem with the Wegas that will require a service visit. Apparently the problem is a defective receiver chip. The best thread I found is at: http://www.agoraquest.com/viewtopic.php?topic=15393&forum=34&start=0&select_page_number=1 I've seen some speculation that it is caused by windex or cleaning fluid dripping down when the screen is cleaned and corroding one of the internal components. That's not applicable in my case, since I always just clean the screen with a microfiber dusting cloth. So, I guess I will be calling a repairman and spending $$$ to fix as it is now flashing up so often as to be unwatchable. Ridiculous, I think, given that my TV is only 3 years old!!
