Question about Sony Bravia KDL-42V4100 42 in. LCD TV

1 Answer

Every 30 sec I loose audio, 5 more sec and my screen goes black, instant reset then the cycle starts again

I had the direct tv guys put in a HD box. The tv was fine for the rest of the night. I power down and then turn it on in the morning. Now, every 30 seconds the audio goes out follwed by another 5 second delay then the whole screen goes black and instantly brings the picture and audio back. Like it is reseting over and over again. This happens on tv mode and when I ran my blue ray blayer it did the same thing leading me to believe the direct tv guys are not the problem. My TV is a Sony Bravia model: KDL-42v4100

HELP!!! Its like 2 months old!

Screen goes black and resets during HD shows


Have you already tried to power cycle all the devices? Unplug the power cable on all your devices for about 1 hour then plug it back in. Check if that fixes it.

Bad lamp again. The lamp life is not dependent on install date but more the amount of use. Ebay for the lamps, a lot of the time you can get them 50% off for refurbs.

NO output either HD or normal tvs (not on/off botton hold prob)


Hi, The fact that you are getting a load icon when you put a disc in makes me think you have corrupted system files. If you have a spare 2.5 SATA drive you could put it into the PS3 and let it auto-format it, see if that gets the menu back for you. If it does then your current drive probably needs to be reformatted on a PC and then re-inserted into your PS3.
You'll lose your save games (unlesss you can back the drive up on the PC).

Screen goes black and resets during HD shows


I just posted this to another Sony owner:

Another point; HD Ready does not mean that it is HD compatible without the addition of an optional part.
The title only implies that it can be adapted to HD reception.
If you did not purchase it with the set, check your user guide to see what you need to make it whole.
You may have to seek this add-on on eBay since it is not guaranteed that Sony will still offer it.


You might want to check this:

Picture goes out, sound stays on


I am not familar with that particular set, but this is what I would check (assuming you don't have a surround sound system hooked up to it as it would sound like a tuner problem otherwise). If you have external Audio/Video jacks with cables hooked up to the Direct TV box, move the video cable and see if you lose video when it is jiggled. If so, you either have a bad cable or connection/connector. When you say you have to turn the TV off for about 30 minutes, do you leave the directTV box on? If so, then the problem seems to be with the TV. Otherwise, maybe the direct TV box is at fault -- leave the TV on and turn off the cable box for a half hour and try it again. You have a few possibilities here, good luck.
