    I have an old sony I got from my parents (a little older than my 55inch Grand Wega). It is a small tv fom the 90s. Still works great but it is stuck in CATV mode and I need to switch it to normal Antenna mode (to pick up vhf 2-13 and the UHF channels). I cannot figure out how to do it as thing has no real menu system. I assume there is a key sequence, but I do not have the manual.

    It is  a model  KV-13TR24

    If anyone has one of these or a similar model I would really appreciate if you could look inthe manual and tell me how to switch the cable from CATV to Antenna.

    I'm unable to locate the service manual for that set, but is suspect that the TV/Cable switch is performed by a relay.  Since its "stuck" in cable, that suggests that the relay must be energized to switch to TV.
