Question about Sony BRAVIA XBR KDL-V26XBR1 26 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

Hi, I am trying to connect a 32" sony bravia with a laptop via VGA male-to-male cable. I am getting"unsupported signal",besides laptop refresh rate is 60 Hz and have tried all possible laptop resolutions. Now the only solution remains changing Sony resolution,or pc setting of Sony. Neither is possible. Pc setting are not highlighted(perhaps not when connection is not established)and I am unable to make changes. I cant either change Sony resolution from full to normal. Someone that has identified this problem,or has got any knowledges may help please? Also,a solution will help other readers who are experiencing the same problem. Thanks in advance for your time! Cheers,Tony

    Hello bobint17,

    Unfortunately,I dont have another laptop,specifically a Sony laptop.Another solution needs to be found.As for the laptop refresh rate,it is 60 Hz,not less.

    I believe we have to concentrate finding the solution on how to change pc settings on the Sony bravia TV,so that resolutions on both equipments are similar.

    Also I thought perhaps using a SVGA cable(instead of a simple VGA) may solve the problem,since my minimum laptop resolution is 800x600.Having a look at TV manual,minimum resolution for VGA cable was 640x480,but my laptop cant support this,plus cable I am using is not svga.Is this something we have to refer as well?

    Cheers,

I have a Sony Bravia KDL-40EX400. Every morning I have to reboot my cable box to get my cable signal. I get the "Unsupported Signal" message and no picture if I don't. I have seen other posts about this...


All symptoms show that cable box is cause of problem, not sure that its internale circuit problem (signal processing in cable box) or its getting distorted signal from cable company.
TV sounds good because it works fine with blu ray player that is HD signal as well.
Change cable box just to confirm it.
I hope this tv would be under warranty so ask nearest Sony service to update its firmware under warranty cover that might fix the issue.
Thanks.

Pc setting for sony bravia


'Unsupported Signal' Error indicates that TV is accepting the signals for Video but not able to display because resolution doesn't matches. Else the message would be 'No Signal'.
Follow the steps-
NOTE- Make sure cable is 15 pin(at both ends) VGA cable, working fine between PC & Monitor.
1.The standard resolution of laptop(any) which would support is 1024*768.
2. Toggle the display output from Laptop Fn Keys depending on Laptop Brand.
3. Connect the cable after settings made.
Also PC Settings will not be highlighted until connection is made.

PC input to Sony Bravia - from Sony Vaio Laptop - unsupported sig


"Unsupported signal" suggests one of two things. Either the refresh rate on your computer is set too high (it MUST be at 60 Hz.) or you have the display resolution set too high

LCD TV and VGA output


The resolution and refresh rates have to match exactly to the TV for it to work correctly with the computer.

The newer computers are using much faster refresh rates by default. Their default resolution is also different.

Consult the manual for the TV and see if the computer's external monitor output can be set to match to what the TV exactly requires. Both the refresh rate and resolution are critical.
