Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-40V3000 Television

1 Answer

Can't get audio via optical port.

I have a Sony Bravia 40" LCD. After a year I decided to upgrade the whole audio set-up. My goal was to connect the PS3 and a DVD player by HDMI to a reciver and from the reciver to my HDTV also by HDMI. So far so good everything works fine; now my Wii system and cable are conected to my HDTV and I've been using RCA audio cables to send audio to my old reciver, now I've decided to use the optical output, but I get no audio. I've done a number of things, but still no results here's what I know so far. The optical cable is working, my reciver optical input works fine. My only fear is a faulty optical output from the HDTV in fact, the beam of light from the Bravia looks very dim, so that's thats...what now???

    My Sony Bravia optical out is not working also and I know the cable is good because it is on the PS3 now. I did not see a setting for the optical out in the Sony menu. What now?

    I am using HDMI into Sony Bravia KDL 40S2000 and can not get sound out of the optical audio. Manual says optical is for digital channels only. Doesn't it recognize HDMI input as digital?

Ok, i think the problem lies with the tv, there must be a setting in the sound menu to use optical as sound out, as the sound will be via the HDMI cable, i applogise if you have checked this.

Where to connect my pen drive in my sony bravia lcd klv32s400a?


Hi Radhika,

Your TV has USB port on back side. Just plug your pendrive there. Then go menu on TV ( use your remote commander) and go to this input. Your TV will read the file on pendrive accordingly.

How to connect my audio system directly to sony bravia


There is usually three ways to connect a TV to a Surround Sound system:

1. Optical Audio Cable (Fiber Optic)
2. Coaxial Audio Cable (Orange)
3. Composite Audio Cables (Left - White, Right - Red)

Once you select a cable to use that is compatible with both devices, you must then connect it to the output on the TV set, and one of the inputs on the Surround Sound Receiver (preferably the Video Input or whatever type you selected to use). Then you must change the input on the Receiver to the proper input that you connected the cable to (most Receivers will have a Source Button if not individual source buttons i.e. Tuner, Tape, CD, Video, Aux, etc.).
Note: Some Receivers if using a certain type of input will not have sound out of all 5 speakers unless the input is 5.1 compatible.

I'm trying to use my bravia as a computer monitor.


Your Bravia should have a 15 pin PC input, this input can take most standard PC resolutions, however if you a have a video card with an HDMI port, you should set your resolution to 1920 x 1080 @ 60Hz refresh rate so that the signal can be recognized and processed, many standard PC video resolutions are not compatible with the HDMI inputs. You should not require audio cables unless you are using a DVI to HDMI connection.

Connecting speakers.


The speakers cannot be connected directly to the audio outputs. These outputs are for use with an external amplifier. Connecting speakers directly to these audio outputs can cause damage to the set. Thanks

Problems with hearing sound from bravia LCD tv through bravia DAV-HDX275 theatre system


The fiber optic port on back on your bravia tv is only for when your using a over the air antenna and watching local atsc channels in your local market. You need to run the fiber optic from your hd cablebox if it has one or your hd sat box if it has one. If you don't have a set top box with the fiberoptic port on it you can use a digital coax cable from the cable or sat box to sound system. The only other way to get sound if you don't have a cable or sat box is to run the red and white rca audio cable from the tv to the sound system and got to the audio setup on tv and turn the tv speakers off and you might have to adjust the audio to fixed instead of variable.

Please help with getting 5.1 sound from my TV!


You must run a Digital Optical cable from your PS3 to your reciever. Then press your function button on your recievers remote until you see SAT/CABLE on your recievers display. Next go to your PS3 settings and go to Sound settings, then Audio Output settings, and select Digital out (OPTICAL) then your done. This is the only way to get true digital sound from your PS3 to your reciever.
