Question about Sony KV-32S42 32" TV
I'm receiving snow and the channels in the upper right hand corner continously evolve from 1-99. By luck or through persistantly turning the tv on and off I can eventually get a local channel ( I'm on an antanae}, and a good picture.Even when I get a good picture the channel numbers in the upper right hand corner still continue to evolve. When I do get a channel I don't dare turn it off or I'll have to start the process al over again! I also can not retrieve the menu, either by the front panel or the universal remote I purchased - made by Sony-. I don't have the original remote. By the way, the blinking lights have changed from five and beyond to ten with the unplugging of the tv if that matters Is this a commom problem? If I can just get the tv to stick to chanel 3 which is not a local channel, I could run everything through the vcr and be happy with my free tv. Can any body help? I'll wait by the mail box in anticipation. Thanks, Grasshoppa
Benimur, Thanks for you reply. Acouple weeks ago I managed to get the tv to stick on channel 3, I haven't turned the tv off since, I just leave it on the blue screen. However. I purchased a playstation last night and it called for turning the tv off to set the player, I cringed but turned of the tv and it onley took me 2 try of turning the tv off and on again to nail channel three, (by watching the the number progression and guessing when it was at channel 3. I believe I have tried your method already, but when I get brave enough again to turn the tv off I'll try again just to make sure. By the way, do they have to be RCA brand cables, and in that case how would I select between video 1 or 2? Thanks again, Grasshoppa

Hi Grasshoppa, I would venture a guess that your tuner is not at fault but most probably the logic circuits controlling it since as you posted, you can tune > get a good picture but "channel numbers in the upper right hand corner ...." If your intention is to use the VCR and thereafter change channel using the VCR, you may use the Audio/Video input. With an RCA 3 cable connector, connect the (Yellow) Video out, (Red/White) L/R Audio out of the VCR to the Video in &L/R Audio in of the TV. You don't need to set the TV to Ch 3 but rather select Video 1 or 2 or A/V. Hope this be of some help/idea to you. Post back how things are or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards
