Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-40BX450 40" Class 1080p LCD HDTV

Open Question

I have a Sony Bravia, Freeview is inbuilt. TV freezes randomly, without warning.

It also switches off and on when it freezes, and the remote doesn't work. I have to turn it off, and wait until the next day to use it. The TV is still under warranty. Do we take it in to the shop to get fixed/get a refund or, is there a way it can be fixed easily?

SOURCE: Moved Sony Bravia TV, now will not turn on at all

The warranty on this set should be for 1 year. Return it for warranty service. Unless the set was dropped, moving it should not have effected anything. DO NOT open the set sas that would void the warranty.

SOURCE: My Sony KD28DL10U digital TV will not tune into freeview

I think this is one of the TV's that wont work as part of the Digital Switchover as it's too old. My Brother has the same TV and has had to buy a new Set top box to get Freeview.

try unplugging your t.v for a few minutes, then plug it back in. if it continues check your owners manual or google your issue. this might be the red flash of death. hopefully unplugging it works. good luck!

SOURCE: Sony Tv Bravia won't switch on for days, when on only white light and sound no pictures. Help

I think fault is in electrolyte capacitor.You should check the supply volt of cathode & all relative component of RGB input.

SOURCE: i have a sony bravia 46'' lcd 2x hdmi tv when I GO THRU MORE THEN ABOUT 10 CHANELS KIND OF QUICKLY the tv goes to a green screen and stays on a green screen until i restart the tv is this norm

I find it unlikely this is normal.

I am not a betting man but..........

What I would do is invest the time to contact Sony customer service and talk to someone who can access their database.

They like other major companies keep extensive records of every complaint recorded---see if anyone else had this issue.

Sony has had some beauties---Recently an issue where heat warps the door made of plastic in front of the lamp resulted not in a free part but free repair and or replacement of the 3-4 year old sets involved.

let me know if you have questions

Why does my bush freeview box freezes on bbc channels why


This could be too much signal thanks to the Freeview retunes going on. Your aerial is more sensitive at some frequencies, so there's more signal power higher up the frequency range.

A simple and inexpensive diagnosis tool is a variable attenuator. The MA1620 on this page is perfect for that job:
Splitters amplified splitters and attenuators

It will give you a way to reduce the signal level at one TV without affecting the other TVs in the house.

Is it possible to tune the channels of an integrated freeview digital box within a tv to a recordable dvd player


No!

However, i see what your trying to accomplish - being able to record the freeview pictures you recieve form the Sony inbuilt tuner onto the recorder.. whilst being able to watch a different channel..?!

Well, you cant. If your Recorder has an inbuilt digital tuner then of course this would solve your issues, whereas if it is purely an analouge recorder and your in an area that has switched over then youll need some new hardware unfortunatly,.

How do you retune the freeview for switch over


You may lose some channels when you retune the TV as the channels have been rearranged. To locate them look at the EPG although you may still find that some channels are no longer available on FREEVIEW. See the following link for additional information

Cut out


I had the same problem with this model, seems to be a common problem across much of the recent sony range. For me the problem stopped when I unplugged the external aerial (not much use if you want to use freeview, but maybe some indicator of source of the prob ?)

This tv has inbuilt freeview, how do i use a dvd recorder to record off it?


The Wharfdale Machine that has Freeview has an F on the end ie vdrhd400f. It may be yours is an analogue version. Always possible that you can use the TV as an output via a scart to record what you are watchin
