I'll try to explain this as best as I can. I have had my Sony since October and love the set a lot. However, this morning the strangest thing happened. My wife played one of here workout tapes fine and turned everything off. When I turned the set back on, I wanted to make sure I had everything programmed tonight on the VCR before heading to work. The thing is, when I hit the TV/VTR button I got the black screen and no signal message. I have my VCR set up through the main cable line, so the cable first goes to the VCR and then to the set. So, basically I just turn on channel 4 on the TV and press play to watch a tape. I made sure and did some testing and verified that the VCR is in fact working. I first took the cable going into the TV and sent it to a small TV/VCR combo that I have, and it worked perfectly fine on that. Second, I also took a video cable and fed it from the VCR to the VIDEO 2 on the front of my set and sure enough I was able to get a picture from the VCR this way. Now true, I do have a free slot on Video 4 and could hook up my VCR to play through this way, but I of course should not have to. What worries me even more is that I tried my Nintendo which the only way I can play through the TV is through the cable since it has an RF unit and sure enough it did the same thing of no signal. Yes on both the VCR and NES I made sure that they were set to ch. 4 On the VCR I also tried switching the VCR to ch.3 and that resulted the same. This has never occurred before with the set.
Has anyone else incurred such a problem with this set or another SOny and has a thought or solution as to what they had to do. Otherwise it looks like I would have to of course call the serviceman to come and take a look at it. Thanks for any insight everyone.
