Question about Projection Televisions

1 Answer

When I got my Sony BRAVIA KDL-32L4000 last year, I could not get my VCR to work  in Video In-2 on the side of the unit. Got a consistent "no signal" message on the screen. I then got rid of the old Magnavox VCR, thinking it was too old to work with the new Sony. Yesterday I tried to attach my new ZOOM H2 digital recorder for playback through the Bravia. This is supposed to work, according to the ZOOM manual, with red/white audio cables. Again, I got the "no signal" message, but the ZOOM played back just fine in my BOSE Wave Radio AUX jack. Now I think the side Video In 2 jack may be broken and was probably broken from Day-1. Is there a way to test that? Do the Diagnostics in the Bravias check input jacks, too? I have a DVD plugged into Video In 1 on the back of the Bravia and it works just fine. The TV is covered under a Sears contract, in fact it was a replacement after my previous TV could not be repaired. I do not want to call them until I'm sure the Video In 2 jack is actually dead. Can someone help?

    Dan,
    The DVD Player that was in the Bravia's video 1 works fine in video 2. The red-and-white RCA cables worked to play back the ZOOM H2 recording through the AUX jack of my stereo system.
    The cable attached to the DVD player is the heavy three-pronged (red, white, yellow) kind, as opposed to the thin red-/white- RCA cable I was trying to use with the ZOOM. Of course, when I tried to use the old VCR last year, that was with the red/white/yellow heavy cable.
    I'd still like to know why these things aren't working, but at least I can play back the ZOOM through the stereo.

If you take the cables that are currently connected to video 1 and connect them instead to video 2, select video 2 as the input from the remote and get the no-signal message, there is a problem with either the switching IC (not likely) or the input jacks (more likely). The problem with the input jack may be as simple as a bad solder connection that can be fixed in 5 minutes. Do the test first. If you get no signal, request service. This should be a simple repair.

    Ok. I think there is a little confusion here. First, if the Zoom only uses the audio cables (red/white), the TV won't work as it keys off of the video signal (yel). That is where the "no signal" message comes from. If the DVD player works in both Video 1 and Video 2 using the red/wh/yel cables, than the problem was with your VCR NOT the TV.



    Let me know if you need anything else.

Sony kp-57ws510 plays perfectly through vcr but refuses to pick up satellite feed


The VCR puts out a video signal. The satellite feed is an RF signal that requires the tuner to be working.
Your TV probably ewon work with an anttena either.

Broken mirror on a 50' bravia by sony


You can fix it yourself . Just measure the distance between clips to get the dimensions and most glass shops can cut you a mirror to your specs and install it yourself. A repair shop would probably be in the neighborhood of around 350 to repair it. Its just a regular mirror attached to the rear wall of your unit with screw i clips.

Broken mirror


I would suggest to call sony and ask them for the price, if that is too expensive; measure the area where the mirror was mounted and instead of buying it from sony, go to a place where they sell mirrors and ask them to cut one for you. Just do not tell them the purpose of it because they may charge you more.
Good Luck.
