Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-40S2000 40 in. LCD HDTV

DVD is wired to the VCR and does not work

DVD player is wired to the VCR, then to the Sony Bravia. I ususally put the DVD in the machine, turn on the VCR and it all works. Someone messed with the TV remote, now the DVD player is working but does not play on the TV screen. I plugged in another DVD player and get the same problem so it's not the DVD but problem is with the TV remote setting. Can't figure out which buttons to push to get the DVD to show on the TV.
hspirit853@comcast.net hope you can help. Thanks

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, on the Sony Bravia, it should be set to either Channel 3 or AV, Video 1 or Video.

Should this be not corrective, pls post back how the VCR is hooked up to the Sony Bravia, specifically, how many cables and what colors are used.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

The Sony Bravia should have a number of component inputs, so you should be able to hook up the DVD directly to the TV. The only reason for hooking it up through the VCR would be to record a DVD on VHS... but that's for the birds--VHS is old technology.

Each component input on the back of the TV has a number. You then select to view the component you want by pressing the remote control button to change the display (it should show with one you're on... e.g., Video 1, Video 2, Video 3, etc.).

MY tv that goes straight to the screensaver mode like it would on pc. sony bravia kdl32nl140 is the tv.


J, it sounds like it may not be getting any input from cable or satellite, try switching cable and inputs around, try VCR or DVD player. You may need a firmware or software update.
Some forums say to unplug and wait 10 min. then it resets.

Can't receive proper dvd/vcr signal


Your Toshiba TV uses the American NTSC standard.

Your DVD/VCR uses the Australian PAL B/G standard.

Unfortunately the two are not compatible as they stand, but there may be an option in the DVD/VDR menu to force the output to NTSC. This varies from make to make.


Another option would be to modify your main DVD player to make it multi-region so it will play ALL of your DVDs. Some models can be modified with a simple handset code, some can be modified with a software update, and others need an internal modification.

Post your make and model, and I can advise you on modification.

Try plugging the coax directly into the T.V. or from you VCR or DVD player then to the TV. The bravia sets also have various picture mode settings as you will discover when you go through your manual. Cable boxes or splitters can cause problems also is they are not of good quality. I love my 40.
