BRAVIA TV KDL-40V2500

I have my TV connected thru a HDMI cable to my cable box. TV screen goes on-off for a few seconds. With the HDMI cable connected the sound goes off. Without the HDMI the sounds continue. I have tried to change the HDMI but the problem persists. Do you think this is something to do with an internal failure of the screen? This was purchased around 5 months ago.

    Model Bravia KDL 32L504. Tv powers on, picture blinks for one second and blinks off again. Green power light remains on...no blinking. This happens with HDMI & cable box connected, same without. I tried power reset with no results. Can a software update be run with the TV in this condition? Or will that make any difference.

I had the same problem and the only way i could solve it was to disconnect power from the tv, let it "reset" then it would be ok for a bit. the problem went away entirely when the cable company updated its software for its hd box. might be coincidence....

also, pre-update, the resolution wouldnt automatically set correctly. If I turned on the tv to a hi def station, it would set to 480 and only set to 1080 when i changed to a normal station then back to the hd. then it was fine. again, after the update from the cable company this went away.

Sony BRAVIA KDL-40V2500 audio not working


I would Google the model number carefully for "problems" "no sound" and usually this set will display some kind of error code===it may even have a hard reset to try===service manuals are available on the net/web to allow you to see how the sound circuit is set up etc.

Sony kdl-40v5100 has handshake problem


1.This issue sounds as though the TV connection circuit has an issue.
2. You have changed the DVR and the HDMI cables and you still have an issue with the video (pink screen) indicates a video circuit issue ( improper voltage or current) at the video section of the circuit.
3. This will require some troubleshooting by a qualified tech.
4. To make sure, try connecting another properly working LCD TV to the cable box or DVR an check.If you get a picture and sound properly it is the TV.
5. Usually a cable box is QA'd (quality assured) by the company and will not be sent unless tested 1st

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.

Periodic tv screen blackouts


The problem is your cable box. I know you said you replaced it, but I work on TV's everyday and, sorry to say this but cable box HDMI outputs have serious issues, like no or intermittent sound and video. I have seen customers exchange their cable boxes 5 and 6 times and still have the problem. Your best bet is to use the component outputs of your cable box, visually you will not see a picture difference between component and HDMI when using a cable box. Your other solution is to get satellite; I have NEVER seen an HDMI issue with a satellite box
