    I remember the 20TS20, from around the same time frame, having the hue,
    color, brightness, and speaker controls being on pots that were located
    under the front door panel located just below the CRT display. I cannot
    remember exactly for the 20TS27, but I would assumed it to be about the

    In your set, I am sort of sure that there should be a channel blocking,
    clock settings, MTS/Stereo/SAP, and timer options menu. For access to these,
    you will definetly need the origional remote, or one that is absolutely
    compatible to it.

    In this model, I don't think there is any service, or advanced user setup
    menu, as such like that you would have with the newer V, or FV, or S, or FS
    series of sets. These sets came out later on.

    there is no door panel anywhere on this tv. nothing happens when I
    press menu and the only on screen info is for vol/hue/picture up/down.
    how can there be adj for those and not the others? and no menu. very
    strange as this set has LESS features than my old Sony 20" from the
    late 80s.the brightness looks like it's cranked all the way up. I've
    resorted to placing limo black window tint over the screen at night.
    assembled in Mexico.
