I have a sony kv-35s66 that I am happy with but would like to experience OTA HD as a way to ease into the upgrade. I really have no complaints with this TV. My question is, "Is the tv HD ready? Can I attach an HD tuner and get a better picture?
If it is possible, I would appreciate any suggestions on which tuner to choose. I'm looking for the best value for the dollars I spend.

Re: Will sony KV35s66 accept a digital tuner?
The Sony "S" series is not HD compatible in any way. To see an HD program you would require an HD down-conversion box. This would make the pictures look like regular TV, but may have some distortions because of the 16:9 scan ratio from the HD programs, unless you model series is 16:9 compatible.

KV36XBR450 is HD ready which means that you will need a set top box to
receive the HD signal. Comcast will provide this for you naturally at an
additional expense. Your other option would be to purchase a set top box
and use and OTA (over the air) antenna which will allow you to receive
your local broadcasts in HD.
I am sorry, however i have no heard about upgrade for this set. There is nothing available even with Sony.
No,this tv is fixable.The video board,that the board,that connected to the CRT (Tv Tube),those round pins holes that connected CRT sockets that hold the CRT(Tv Tube) and the video board together.Resolders those CRT pins sockets that connected on to the video board.Will solved the cold solders connections between the CRT pins sockets and the video board this problems,will be solved.Tries take it to a tv shop,ask them take the tv aparts,resolder the video board CRT pins hole sockets on the video board for you.The priced my guest about $35-40.They must,take tv cover out and resolder the vdieo board CRT pins holes sockets.The whole job,take about 20-30 mins.
Already post other solution about this. On Sony TVs, the common problem is loose connections. Your TV have a ssb ( vertical position) unplug and re solder. Other thing, Tuner will be in loose connection too. Try and I hope this work for you.
This showing the tv have power. Maybe when you pushed the power button it clicks and shuts down then show the red light bliking showing one code. Some shurt on horizontal board or loose some voltage from power supply. This is not easy if you don't have experience with electronic. I'm sorry still tring
