Question about Sony KV-32V25 32" TV

1 Answer

Can't get cable or any channels

I just bought a KV-32V25 off my neighbors when they moved and when we got it all hooked up with the cable wire in we did not get any channels. Even when we auto programmed it and turned the cable: 'on' in the menu screen. All I get is a screen in complete fuzz. I'm pretty sure it is not the cable wire since when we move it it still a complete fuzz. I cannot get any channels what so ever. Any help on how to configure my KV-32V25 to get channels I will greatly appreciate,thanks.

Do you have another TV set you can test the cable with? It possible the TV you bought has a bad tuner. Or your cable line is dead.

I hooked up my skywire and did channle surchtwo times i only get 3 channles why

First, I'm not a Skywire Tech.
* Interesting question. I'm an "Old School" electronics tech (retired) so I checked out this 'Newfangled' TV antenna.
* So are we bringing back the old 'rabbit ears'? Looks like it. But there is a big problem; Who is still broadcasting "over the air"? Here in Hawaii they stopped "Air" transmissions decades ago. They still use it as a back up in the event of a Hurricane or other Cable/Telephone wire failure. But most TV's are digital now and do not pick up analog channels.
* This year all my analog TV's stopped working as Oceanic was bought out by Spectrum. They came around searching out "loose transmissions" from homes with broken or unhooked cables. Unhooked or old TV cables will broadcast a weak TV signal that a nearby neighbor can pick up using an "Air" antenna hook up to a TV. So by "listening" for these Cable signals the neighbor can watch the same channels. (depending if they cable owner has an active account.)
* in a crowded area like a city with lots of buildings. It's probable there are lots of old cable connections that have been cut. Smaller towns may be spread out too far to catch your neighbor's cable signals.
* Spectrum did an area wide sweep checking for these "stray" signals and installed filters on to our cable line and everyone else that was inadvertently "broadcasting".
* I found some reviews from consumer reports and others that may help you understand the question.
* FYI; Elon Musk is sending up "Free World wide WiFi" system into orbit within the next 5-10 years. So you may see cable and Internet channels go the way of "Radio" (you still get car radio stations free, right?) Ahh, I remember our first TV in 1959. Only had one B&W station at the time. And it was free!

Sony Trinitron, KV-20M20, cannot access most cable TV channels??

It may be that the tuner is bad. It works in bands and can lose upper bands. If you use a top of set box for cable it may need reset.

I get no channels wen i plug in my cable wire into the cable jack


First, I would change the cable that comes from the wall to the TV.
Plug the cable into the cable port, then go into the menu of the TV. Go to the channel setting and go down to where it says "CABLE YES/NO"and change it to cable YES. Then try to re-autoprogram it.

If there are no channels found after that, then you may have an issue with the tuner.

Will not work with cable

The set has a problem with the tuner itself and there are no resets in this new sets,you should remove the back cover and carefully tap with a wooden or rubber handle the tuner area where the cable comes in to see if a channel would tunes in,if it does react is likely it has loose conections in the tuner grounds or pins,the conector where you screw the cable to can not be loose either,it should be nice and solid,if you are familiar with tv service is something you can try but if you are not too familiar call for assistance from a servicer or just save the money and use a vcr to change the channels using the same imput as the dvd player unless you have two separete aux.imputs. Let Us know if you need more information.
