Question about Sony KDS-R50XBR1 50" HDTV
The first thing to check is the cable, have you tried it on any other HDMI device (if you have one)? The cables are durable but not indestructible and even brand new it could be a bad unit.
On a less likely consideration: Since HDMI is a digital format (as opposed to RCA, S-video and VGA which are all analog) it requires certain compatibility. While ALMOST all HDMI device (DVD players, computers, game systems) use a pretty universal language for HDMI there are occasions where that they are not compatible, this also applies to the cable itself since it does minor translation in the process of transmitting the signal. Again, this would be a rare occurrence.
The third option is that the HDMI ports on either the device sending to the TV or on the TV itself are not working.
