Question about Sony KP-51WS520 51" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

I have a Sony Wega KP-51WS520. The problem is with the HDMI port. I have several devices connected to a HDMI switch (Tivo, Bluray player, PS3, AppleTV) and then connected to the only HDMI connection (input 7) on the rear. Everything seemed fine last night but then when I turned the TV on, the Tivo gave an error about not being able to receive HDMI or something. It was a Tivo error but was showing on the HDMI input. Then the AppleTV would work and display correctly, but when trying to play Netflix videos, there would be an error about not supporting HDCP or something like that (sorry, I didn't take exact notes and not near the TV now). The Bluray player was just black. I didn't even try the PS3. I tried changing the HDMI cable. Removing the HDMI switch from the situation. Doing a power reset and a hard reset on the TV (power resets on everything). But the problem still occurs. It appears there are 6 blinks on turning the TV on, which sounds like a No Horizontal or audio problem (depending on the answer I've seen to other posts). I called a local TV repair place and they think it would need a new board and cost at least $250 to get started. Any thoughts or help? It still shows some video and audio through the HDMI input but is just acting buggy. Seems like it might be a setting but can't say for sure. The HDMI plug on the back of the TV does seem loose. I've tried moving the connection around when I plug it in, doing power resets and still get the problem.

    Sorry, there are 5 blinks when turning on, not 6 blinks.

    Doing a bit more testing, I can get the Tivo to show video but no audio. A box appears that says "HDMI conection not permitted. Press SELECT for more information." And audio and sound off the AppleTV if it doesn't have content protection. But if I try something like Netflix I get the error "This content requires HDCP for playback. Either your HDMI cable isn't properly connected, or your HDMI connection doesn't support HDCP. Please reconnect the HDMI cable from your Apple TV to your HDTV and try again." So it seems that there is something going on with the HDCP part of the HDMI connection that isn't working on the TV end. Ugh.

You need to check supply volts on main micro IC702 on main board of Sony KP-51WS520 TV.
If you have experience of big TV repair then I would recommend to get service manual of TV from any online store and check above said IC supply volts. TV must give error by blinking light in case any problem in drive circuits and if main micro fried, no error signal will be there.

SOURCE: Sony KF50we60 hdmi-dvi sound cuts when plugging into a ht-sf2300

DVI = HDMI without the audio connectors. So basically you need to connect your audio in some different way, PS3s allow you to keep your video signal as HDMI and change the Audio signal to component, so that is one way or doing it, not sure if the blue ray players allow you to do this though.

HDCP is causing the trouble You experience. Try using other video input connection for same set. If it works fine that way, the problem is that the rights protection (HDCP) is acting as "police" to prevent copying or reproduce unauthorized content. If only the HDMI is connected (disconnect all other inputs/outputs) on some sets, could be work fine.

Sony Wega stanby light blinks 5 or 6 times


When a Sony TV flashes five times, that means that there is an AKB circuit fault.
Six blinks is also a fault related to video problems, and regards a fault concerning the digital board and the Jungle IC (the main CPU).

This means that there is something wrong with the video.
Try first unplugging power for few hours, if that does not work, call a technician, as several IC and components must be tested and eventually replaced.
