If your dealer has not already told you, I suggest you unplug the unit from the wall and let it sit for 30-45min. Plug it back in and hope...

SOURCE: Sony 61" lcd has bluish spots in screen, any ideas?

Hello, inside the set there is an optical unit with 3LCD panels. Somehow the dust particles came into your set and now the dust is all over the optical unit and 3LCD panels. Only way to solve this issue is to clean the dust. Please contact your Sony dealer. Best regards, Arpi

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

Hi Julie,
There are a couple ways to go here. I'll give you the procedures step by step. If you want clarification on anything, just ask. If I make an assumption that is wrong, stop me and let me know. The more you know, the easier this will be for both of us.

First I'd like to double check on MisterSony's diagnosis. Refresh rates that are too high end up as a black screen on many LCD models.

This is my first assumption, the display settings are currently for both monitors. Your original screen is still functioning.

If so,

  • Right click on your desktop
  • Click Properties
  • Click the Settings Tab
  • Click the Advanced button
  • Click the Adapter Tab
  • On the lower part of that tab, there should be Refresh Rate. If it is not at 60 Hz, try to change it to 60 Hz.
  • Click OK
  • Click Apply
  • A pop up may appear asking if you want to keep the changes. Accept the changes.
Get back to me with the results. If it was already set at 60Hz. We go to the next step.
Mike

SOURCE: can't get picture in wide format on the menu. 16:9 and 4:3 only.

I had the same problem with a 50". The only way I could fix it was to set my Bose system to 4:3 format and the tv to 16:9. Now you can use the zoom to get the right size

good luck

Tip

No Digital Channels can be picked up or slow to change channels by remote.


If you experiance a problem with changing channels on remote control of all digital channels, but the analog working ok.The problem is with the Digi Pcb. This is a stand alone pcb with the Digi tuner mounted on it.All Nec LCD Flat Panel Tv's From NL-T26HD1 TO NL-T46HD1 using module MDM- 300.
A quick repair is to replace the Digi Pcb at a Silly cost of $ 250, + labour cost and you will not get this repair.
Better than loosing a repair to so many cheap Imports is Replace the ( 27.000MHZ )Crystal on the Digi Board the one and only Crystal on this PCB and you have a repair and the set is back working as good as the day it was bought.
Good Luck Guys Lets prove to some that thought we tec"s were history.

Hdtv picture freeze


I also have a Brand new Sony Bravia 52" LCD with Comcast Cable (motorola box).When switching between HD Channels sometimes the left side of the screen shows a smushed version of the new channel, and the right side is a frozen picture of the previous channel. I correct this by switching to a non HD channel and back. Cable or TV problem I wonder?

RCA TV/VCR combo T13060GY won't go below channel 5


I had a similar trouble with a couple of tv sets, one was a Granada and the other a Sony, but once connected to the satellite or digi-box via the scart socket it seemed to concentrate it's mind and override all the channels - so the tv stops being a tv set but becomes a monitor displaying whatever analogue video signal the digi-box sends to it.

The channels should arrive from the satellite receiver/decoder box and that remote control is all you need and the only thing you need to touch the monitor tv for will be the volume...

Scart sockets and plugs are apt to become dirty and unreliable and are responsible for many problems, including once a blue screen.
