Sony Trinitron TV 1990

I just got a digital cable box from the cable company and before this had the tv (sony trinitron model KV-27TS20, manufactured april 1990) thru vcr and for some reason years ago when i hooked it up, had to use channel 4, 3 wouldnt work.
this new cable box i MUST have channel 3.
at one time or another i must have scanned for channels so the tv would skip the channels that had nothing on them. and there was nothing on channel 3 so now it goes from channel 99, then up to 2 then up to 4, skipping 3.
ok im not stupid, need to get to the menu.
I lost my remote, havent seen it in 5 years.
any way to reset it? left unplugged all nite and didnt do anything. no buttons on the thing to do anything but adjust color and such.
i searched around and on some site found a dynatron #mr110 sony remote that would be able to bring up the menu as original, and its $25 plus shipping. regular universal remotes dont seem to have the scan channel feature, so i need this remote i guess, called sony miracle remote.
do i really need to buy a remote? ive torn my house up 3 times last nite.
just need to get to channel 3 on the tv and im sittin in fat city.
thanks

Just bought a Sony KV-27ts20 second hand. Great


There might be another solution beside the trash can. You see often with audio problem the fault is the audio output i.c that is gone. Also in the tv menu you may have speaker on/off, make sure they are on. If it still doesn`t work then you may want to try the audio out connectors at the back of the set,there may be sound there. What you`ll need is and audio system with aux/cd/tape input and a rca/phono stereo cable. Just connect the tv out to any free input and turn up the volume .
By the way the tv audio out may be variable(option in the audio menu) which means that any amplified speakers(computer speakers) could be used as long as you have rca connectors on the end of it.
Hope this will help. Good luck

I have a Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-27FS100 TV


You will need the converter if you are dependent on broadcast reception; in other words, use an antenna with your set. Cable and satellite sources may or may not 'go digital' at some point in time so if you are using one of these, check with your cable or satellite company. 
If you decide to buy one of the pretty, new flat panel sets, buy the converter and DON'T toss your Sony. Store them in a dry place as backups. The flat panel sets are crapping out all over so you might do without TV when it fails.

Need info before buying one.


The Sony KV-32S120 has an analog tuner. If you use it with an antenna, you'll need a digital converter box. If you're a cable tv subscriber, the cable company will do the conversion and you won't need anything. Here's what Sony says about it...

No Color playing DVD just black & White


Have you tried playing the DVD in PAL60,NTSC 3.35 or alternately select the colour system on the TV manually rather than in auto ?
