SONY TV Channel Display Won't Go Away!

  1. Just added Direct TV to a SONY KV27V10. via its RF connection

    But, ever since then, the SONY's On Screen Channel Display will not go away

    Nothing in the "consumer" menu helps.

    Is there a "secret" or "service" menu I can access to fix this problem?

    Or is this a service call type of problem?

    Hit display button on remote control or sometimes exit.

    Did you inadvertently press the "display" button on your Sony TV remote?
    Press it again and it should go off.

    Well...

    I don't really have the remote for this TV anymore.

    I been using my SONYS' VCR remotes

    RTM-V229

    and

    RTM-V266A

    Will there "Display" button do the same thing?

    Also, there is no exit button on either of them

    If the remote is switched to TV mode it may suffice.

    It may not be a design flaw or a problem at all. Some TVs are
    designed such that the channel number display is on-screen as long as
    the set remains on. I once saw a small Magnavox TV that showed the
    channel number all the time; there may be others with the same type of
    OSD (onscreen display) design. If you have the instruction manual for
    your Sony set, I'd look there for instructions as to how to display or
    hide the OSD, using the set's own front-panel controls.

    I don't have the instructioin manual, but, I have been able to download its
    service manual.

    It does show that there is a "secret" service menu.

    I'll have a better look at it to see if there is a OSD "Off" command.

    But, that still leave the question, why would adding a Direct TV dish/box
    result in the OSD being on all the time?

    When before it vanished after a few seconds??

    On the Sony remote, press Display, and wait about 1 second. The display mode
    should change, and you should be able to cycle through it to turn it off.

    With some of the Sony models, if there is something in the signal that the
    set does not like, the channel number in the display will remain lit. Signal
    defects can be low amplitude of the sync pulses, the colour burst being out
    of specs, the blanking pulses out of specs, and etc.

    You can verify this by connecting the set directly to a known working video
    source, such as your DVD player. If the channel indication goes out, you
    know that the source you had connected your set to is not very good.

    On all Sony models, the channel number and all displays can be turned off.
    If the signal going to the set is out of specs, many of the Sony models will
    display the channel or input source ID until the situation is corrected.

    I have been looking at the service manual, and while I have found under
    "Electrical Adjustment" settings to change OSD Intensity and Display
    Position. I have found no setting to turn off the channel number display.


    Do you know what the command is to do it?

    Try this....put the Direct TV remote in TV mode. Then slowly hit every
    button on the remote, except power. One of the buttons will be a dual
    purpose button, that will cause the display to go off. In tv mode, that
    button will henceforth be known as "DISPLAY"
    As soon as you figure this out, and while the TV is still working, sell the
    TV. It has that 4 letter word on the front of it...sony.
     
  12. If you hook it up to an antenna does it still have the channel number stuck
    in the corner?
