I have just relocated a Sony Bravia KDL-32V2000 TV receiver

Customer Question
to a new residence, and...
I have just relocated a Sony Bravia KDL-32V2000 TV receiver to a new residence, and performed Auto Setup. Two channels (2 and 9) have no sound, but the other two channels (7 and 10) are fine. I have done a reset, but no luck. The only way I can get sound on channels 2 and 9 is by clicking the key "A/B" or "sound" - I do not have the remote with me at the moment. How do I get sound to the other channels?

Hello, my name is***** be happy to assist you.
You can use control buttons on TV itself to perform such adjustment.
Press Menu on top of TV, use Vol +/- and Ch +/- buttons to navigate in menu and push Input (next to menu) as OK/Enter.
Now push Menu, go to Sound menu and check Dual Sound option and there you can select sound A/B, Stereo, Mono etc that can be select by A/B sound button on TV remote.
I trust my input will help you out. Please feel free to respond if you have any additional questions.

Subject: I just responded to your TV questionHi Shahid,I got to check out this problem with my Sony Bravia TV, and followed your advice. There seem to be two inconsistencies:-1: Firstly, 2 channels have sound, and 2 channels don’t. What does this mean?
The only way to get sound on the 2 problem channels is to press “A/B” on the remote, each time.
2: Secondly, as you can see from the attached photo, after following your instructions (same result via the Remote), the “Dual Sound”, is greyed out.
There is also a message at bottom of subsequent screen (referring to Dual Sound) - “Not available for current signal”.Hope the above helps.Best regards,
Mervyn FinsterPS: Please confirm the photos attached (or not).

This is odd, have you tried a working TV at same antenna point to see if it works on specific channels as well?
I have got the picture, thanks.

I have just returned from the new apartment, and whilst there conducted the following tests:_1: Reconfirmed the "faulty" TV could still not receive sound, unless pressing the "A/B" button each time. I then took the "faulty" TV away, and replaced it with a "good" TV (also a SONY Bravia) using the same antenna cable and it worked perfectly.2: Simultaneously, plugged the "faulty" TV into the same antenna point in the room from which the "good" TV had been taken, and tried it there. Still no sound on the same 2 channels, but sound was OK for the other 2 channels.It seems to me (an Accountant, and not a technician), the problem is with the "faulty" TV set, and I need to find some way to access the "Dual Sound" control to turn it on.I welcome your further suggestions!
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 2 years ago
OK, how did you reset the TV as you mentioned in initial question?
I mean what was the procedure to reset the TV?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
From memory, it was "factory reset".
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 2 years ago
OK, please go to Menu > Setup > All Reset to get initial setup/ first time setup screen then run channel scan option to see if it helps to resolve the problem?
Thanks.

Thanks for your last guidance which I followed, got to 'All Reset' and ran the full channel scan option. Tested, and all channels fully operational, and all channels ran on full sound, so all good. Thank you for your help and guidance.Best regards,
