Will not switch between S & composite inputs

Unless I'm missing something, my monitor is supposed to automatically detect and route outgoing signals, but while S-video and composite audio work fine, composite video is not working at all. Any ideas? Thank you in advance!

I have 21 GOODMANS LD2212 TVs and want to play an MP3 player through the "audio in" however it shows no AV signal (yes I have selected AV or SCART source) likewise if I use a scart and connect...

From your description, it seems like the set doesn't activate the AV input unless it sees a video signal. I don't know if it the input is smart enough to require a valid composite signal (that is, one from a source that includes proper synchronizing signals) or if it will work as long as something is there. So here's a suggestion. Get an RCA Y-adapter with one jack in and two plugs out, and split one of the audio outputs from the MP3 player. Feed the audio to the audio input as normal, and connect the other plug to the video input. This may enable the AV input since there will then be some signal at the video input. It won't be a valid video signal, of course, so if it works you'll just see random flashing on the screen. Maybe you can pretend it's a light show to accompany the music.

My 36" Flat-screen CRT Philips TV turns itself off

I'm getting the exact same thing with a 26" model. First I found AV2 started carrying AV1's input so we put a switch in. Then it starts to shut off with the twice blinking light after viewing the scart input for a while. I'm currently trying feeding it scart set to composite rather than RGB to see if it'll stay on. One other thing - I just got a oneforall remote. I don't suppose you did - in case that is triggering something?

People are reporting a fault with the "painter" chip which is terminal usually. But that seems to manifest as the tv switching to scart input spontaneously. I haven't seen that.

Hope you get somewhere - I'll let you know if I find anything.

Screen goes black and resets during HD shows

I just posted this to another Sony owner:

Another point; HD Ready does not mean that it is HD compatible without the addition of an optional part.
The title only implies that it can be adapted to HD reception.
If you did not purchase it with the set, check your user guide to see what you need to make it whole.
You may have to seek this add-on on eBay since it is not guaranteed that Sony will still offer it.

You might want to check this:

Screen goes black and resets during HD shows

Have you already tried to power cycle all the devices? Unplug the power cable on all your devices for about 1 hour then plug it back in. Check if that fixes it.

Help! Surround Sound problems!

Since you have a surround sound system, you probably should just bypass the TV's audio.

Connect the red/white plugs from your digital cable box to one of the inputs on your surround sound system but not the Phono input unless the Phono input lists something aside from Phono, like Aux/Phono or CD/Phono.

Connect the S-Video or composite (yellow) video plug from your digital cable box directly to the S-Video or composite (yellow) video jack on your TV.

If your digital cable box does not have a S-Video (4 pins and flat rectangular hole) or Composite (yellow RCA jack) jack and only has the screw/push-on type cable with the pin in it, then leave the remaining connections as-is.

Now switch your surround sound system to the input you connected the red and white plugs to and turn on your TV. You should see picture from the TV, but hear audio from the surround sound system.

Component Input

To save cost on this model, as with many others they are sharing the S-Video input circuits with the composite input circuits at the entry point. There is a kill switch incorporated with the S-Video jack in the set. Even if you put an external switch box to the set, the composite video will not work unless the S-Video plug is pulled. Your best solution is to get a TV set with a true multiple video input. The other alternative is to have a sat receiver with an external input for throughput feeding. Another alternative, but not as good quality as S-Video, is to use your sat receiver in the composite mode to the set, and have an external switch box to select one or the other.
