Question about Sony BRAVIA KLV-40U100M 40 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

Open Question

Sony Bravia takes long time to power on

Hi we bought a new Sony Bravia 40" LCD HD ready Dec 26, 2008 and I thought it was normal for the lcd screen to take so long to show the picture but friends of ours were over and they said that their tv turns on right away? Is this normal for a 10-20 second wait for the picture to apear? It clicks on right away and sorta hums while we wait for the picture to start.

    We have noticed more problems with this tv. When flipping through channels there is a green line across the screen and it takes about three seconds for the picture to resume. I think that we will return it to the store in which it came from since it is under the 30 days. Any suggestions on the best make and models for an LCD HD 40" - 46"?

    I think it would be nice to select best LCD by watching their performance in store display.

    5 to 7 seconds is normal but 20 seconds is quite late for LCD TV to show picture. Call Sony Customer Support to check it.

Also I have a Sony Bravia and it clicks while it is on as well. I read that forum and some people said to disconnect the cable box for 10 sec. and then some said it was the heat from the summer.. i don't know.. I just turned my tv off and then back on and it stoped. I read this is happening with all kinds of TVs....

How to connect antenna to klv 40u100m


Correct. You have to connect the antenna to another box and then take the output of that box to the TV. An old VCR is ideal as this box.

I have a Sony bravia 32" (KLV-32T400A) and have just bought an xbox.. On trying to connect it using the HDMI input an error comes up saying that it's not a supported signal. I also tried plugging my laptop...


All hd-ready tv's only support max 1080i and not 1080p. The default setting on the Xbox is 1080p, that's why you get that message. There is a way to fix this, just follow the steps below:

Connect TV and X box via HDMI cable with units switched off.

Switch both units on.

  1. Press the right arrow 7 times (Left top jog knob on game controller)

  2. Press "A" button 4 times (Green button)

  3. Press "up" arrow once to set to 1080i

  4. Press "up" arrow once again to set to 720p.

  5. Press "A" to store setting

Sony Bravia KLV-40U100M-screen is distorted, overlay or various vertical lines


The resolution on this was to check the surge protector the television was plugged into. Once we unplugged and plugged into another surge protector, the screen went back to normal and the appearance was great. We believe this was due to one of the resistors within the surge protector may have become faulty.

Sony BRAVIA KLV-40U100M Issue


Just bought the KLV-40U400M Sony Bravia Monitor. Did you fix the turn on turn off problem? How much did it cost, labor/parts?

I'm thinking I better get the extended warranty although I wonder if the board will continue to go bad year after year.

I was told the tv could be replaced but w/someone else's refurbished tv. I was very unhappy w/that response.

So how's your tv today?
