Question about Sony KP-53HS30 53" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

Open Question

Burn-in? I've had this Sony tv for over 5 years and i got it hooked to the HD cable box, when the TV gets any HD signal instantly goes into "widescreen" mode with black bars on the top and bottom of the screen.. I really tend to watch more HD channel, which means the TV's gotta be on "widescreen" mode for longer periods of time, but the other day i was watching something on full screen and i notice that the place where the black bars appear is whiter than the rest of the screen, which makes me think i may have burn-in in the middle of it... Is there any way to fix burn-in? And also how can i change the color of the bars? I don't want them black

I have a Sony Bravia led digital kdl32m4000 tv, I am upgrading my satellite box to hd will I get the signal in hi def. or do I need to upgrade my tv?


No you don't need a new tv. Hook up your HD cable box using HDMI cable. Hdmi out on your cable box then hdmi in on your tv. You need your tv remote to change source input to hdmi.

Hi.I cant see any scores on the tv because it is in 4:3 wide mode but I cant get to it to change it because it is greyed out. How do I change this. Thanks


If you're using an external cable box or the like, you'll need to tell it to output in 16:9 or 16:10 (widescreen). This should be found in the menus somewhere on your cable box. Probably under settings (surprise surprise). Once you've done that, with any luck you're TV should be able to adapt to the new widescreen video signal it's receiving.

Hope this helpes

RCA 52" hooked to cable, can not see their heads. Is it because of HD. Do I need an HD cable from box to tv?


You can put it in wide screen format. On my remote I have to push TV then the right button a few times (right of the OK in the center) and it puts it in widescreen mode. My tv sayes RCA HDTV MONITOR on the front. I hope this helps.

Sound cuts out- cable tv


I had the same problem when I installed the new HD Comcast cable box (DCH3200), initially with my CRT through RF, then with my HDTV through HDMI. Problem solved when I replaced the box with the Comcast RNG110 I got from my local Comcast. It is a neat miniaturized box and it works extremely well on HD. There is no power switch on the box so before activation do not forget to put it on with the remote (cable, power, the green light will come on).

Connecting HD cable box to DVR too HDTV


When I hooked up my HD cable box using an HDMI cable, I had to go into the cable screen menus and select HDMI output. You may have to do something similar when using an S-video cable. Your DVD recorder doesn't seem to have an HDMI input, so you'll have to use the S-video or (worst case) composite video (red, white, yellow cords). Your cable box may also be scrambling the signal so that you can't record. That may be why you can record by bypassing the cable box.
