Question about Sony KV-36FS17 36" TV
The sound pops and cracks sporadically when using the coax cable input. Picture is great except when sound acts up and the causes lines in the picture. When input is from video 1 source which is the vcr or video 2 which is the dvd player there is no sound or picture problem. Would it pay to repair or just keep using and use vcr as turner?
While there are other possibilities, this is a problem which is commonly caused by bad solder connections that form in the tuner. When you're using the video sources the tuner is out of the picture (sorry, I couldn't resist a pun) so you don't see any problem. It's relatively easy to fix, but it means removing the tuner from the board inside, opening the tuner and resoldering the bad connections. This is a nice TV, so it would be worth getting an estimate for the repair. Because of the time involved, many technicians would rather simply pull the tuner and put in a replacement. See if you can find one who will repair the tuner instead. I always did when I was on the road, and it didn't really take that long. It saves the cost of an expensive part.

? What is the model # off the back ?
Does the video work on the RF coax cable input?
For instance,as a test,can you hook-up from VCR coax RF out
to TV coax in,put the TV on Chan. 3,play a tape and get audio and video?
Are you matching colors when trying the A/V inputs?Yellow,red,
and white out of DVD to yellow,red and white in on back of TV?
Then select video input on tv===dial "00" or use input button on
original RCA remote. Are you using original RCA remote that
came w/TV ? Do you have the owner/operator manual for the TV?
Sorry to ask so many ????? Let me know how it goes!! T.
