Hi ginko, Reason I am asking you this question is that I trust your positive reputation in Fixya website will be helpful! I am trying to connect a 32" sony bravia with an Acer laptop via VGA male-to-male cable. I am getting"unsupported signal".Laptop refresh rate is 60 Hz and also have tried all possible laptop resolutions. Have tried changing Sony resolution,or pc setting of Sony for laptop/pc connections.Neither is possible. PC setting are not highlighted(at least not before connection is established)and I am unable to make changes. Neither can I change Sony resolution from full to normal. Laptop minimum resolution is 800x600 and cable I am using is VGA not SVGA.Reading Sony manual,it requires a minimum of 600x480 which is possible only with a SVGA cable. My question is whether do I need to change pc settings,or use a different cable in order to establish connection? Thanks in advance for your time! Cheers, Tony

If you have no picture, no sound and the TV stays in standby it is not the remote sensor. That is the TV in protect mode (forced standby). The TV goes in forced standby when an internal problem is detected. Most Sony have buttons on the TV set. If problem is the IR sensor the TV Twill wake up if you press the channel buttons on the set. Try disconnecting power cord for ten minutes. If that does not work call the Sony support number listed in your user guide.
I can't say I've ever seen that happen with that TV before so I'd say it definitely isn't common. I'm pretty sure it's the signal from the HD channels, I'd suggest talking to your cable service provider.
This problem appears to be an issue with numerous Sony Bravia owners of the same model. Although still seeking a soulution, it would appear that our cable provider (Verizon) has replaced all of their components and the Geek Squad from Best Buy where we purchased the unit, points the finger at Verizon. None of our other Fios-equipped TV's exhibit this problem so I am glad we bought the service plan with the TV and will continue to seek a remedy.
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.).
