I have a KV-20WS1U from the UK. I am now in Crete Greece. The video tunes in fine to Greek TV but the audio does not tune in. I can just get the audio if i use the fine tune from the menu with the result that the video goes. Please does anyone know how to re-tune the set to get both sound and vision.
there are 2 problems: first is the 'no audio' issue when using this set in Greece; the other is that only UHF channels can be received with UK-marketed models.
The tuner of -U models don't have a VHF part, so it is not possible to tune in to signals on channels 2 to 12 and the S-channels. Only channels 21 to 69 can be received. To change this, the tuner has to be replaced by a type which is used in Continental marketed sets.
For the sound problem there is an easier solution, because the difference in picture-to-sound distance (6.0 MHz for the UK I-system and 5.5 MHz for the Greece B/G-system) can be set by a software setting.
You have to go to the service menu of the set. This is done by putting the set in standby with the remote control and then you have to push the following button sequence within 5 seconds:
i+ (This is the button for on-screen display) 5 VOLUME + TV (This is the button you have to press to return from XT viewing to normal TV picture.)
The set will now power up, showing 'TT--' in the upper right corner.
BE AWARE NOT TO ENTER OTHER DIGITS AS DESCRIBED HERE. WHEN YOU ENTER A DIGIT BY MISTAKE, SWITCH OF THE MAIN POWER ON THE SET AND START AGAIN.
Enter '28' and wait for 'TT--' to return. Then enter '08' and wait for 'TT--' again. Then switch off the set and switch it on again.
Then go to the preset menu and see if you do have picture and sound after presetting a station.
If not, repeat the procedure but enter '26' instead of '28' to revert back to -U settings. The set is then back to it's original state. If you report it here, I can see if some more is needed.
I have a video recorder SLV-SF90 from the UK. I am now in Crete Greece. The video tunes in fine to Greek TV but the audio does not tune in. Please does anyone know how to re-tune the set to get both sound and vision.
