SOURCE: Sony BRAVIA KDL-40W4000

Hi there,

I've been looking into this myself as I've also recently purchased the KDL-40W4000. I was watching a murky old film and was getting a bit of sludgy ghosting but found that by reducing the contrast to 25, setting the backlight on low, colour on neutral and the brightness about 40-60 (and taking ALL advanced noise functions off), this reduced the ghosting considerably.

BUT, this is quite a cool and dark image. If you watch standard TV and films mainly, a variation of the Cinema setting is probably the best overall setting i.e.

backlight: min
contrast: 79
brightness: 50
colour: 53
colour temp: Warm 2 (although Warm 1 is less yellow and still fine)
sharpness: min
noise reduction: off
mpeg nr: off
contrast enhancer: off
colour space: standard

SOURCE: how do i change to 1080p on my kdl-40s5100

Hi dragon
To answer you question;
Your tv is able to process signals that it receives from dvd`s,cable box,computers etc. at up to 1080p.
But it does that automatically when it detects/receives that signal.
The only thing that you can change is the format that it will display it, like 16:9 , 4:3, panorama, zoom etc.
hope this help

hello, try tightening your antenna connection this happens when your signal input cable is fualty or loose check that first. then try all other connection that come from your cable,sat reciever or antenna hook up. if your using a digital reception device or digital antenna check those connections to. and be aware that digital reception has interuptions and they depend on the distance between you and the digital signal broadcast station, sometimes storms and atmospheric conditions may cuase a brief lapse in the signal.(stutter) what are you using for a reception? satelite, cable or a digital antenna? hope this helps

SOURCE: I have a Sony KDL-40s5100,

I think that there is a problem with your INPUT/OUTPUT BOARD also know as the ANALOG BOARD

try the other inputs to see what happens
when your using the cable input try to open the menu it should open if it is just the analog board
but if not then you might have a digital problem

I have a Sony Bravia model=KDL-40S5100 that has a static sound coming from the speakers, the picture is just fine and everything else works great it's just the static sound


Check the speaker/s. If found OK; check and replace the damaged component/s at its audio output section circuit board. If needy, replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device; in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

I have a Sony KDL-40S5100 that has very dark colors and major ghosting or trails when there is any movement on the screen.


Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis.
http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
Some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement.

My dish network remote isnt working with my Sony Bravia LCD model KDL-40S5100


You didn't mention the model of the Dish receiver, so here are some common Sony codes. To reprogram the remote, press and hold the "TV" button on the remote until it stays lit. Enter one of the following codes and press "#". Check all of the functions. 500,640,652,756,758,781,783,795,796,797,798,806,807,837,844,845.

What type of audio connection is needed to connect headphones to the Sony Bravia, model KDL-40S5100


The problem wiht this TV is that it does not have headphone output jack (spec: http://www.reviewed.com/product/Sony/Bravia-KDL-40S5100/specs.htm)

You will have to use:
1) AUDIO line out jacks (RCA RED and WHITE JACKS) of the TV connected to small headphone amplifier to drive your headphone.
2) you will have to trun off the TV built-in speakers using on screen audio set up.
3) Set the TV audio line out to be VARIABLE instead of FIXED level if you want to use the remote control to control the level of the audio output feeding the headphone amplifier.

As you can see, it is real simple setup.

Example of headphone amp;

Same one at AMAZON: http://www.amazon.com/Upbeat-Audio-T613-BNC-Boostaroo-Application/dp/B000EIWCFE/ref=pd_sxp_grid_pt_1_0

Notes: you will need RCA plugs to mini-stereo phone jack adapter since this unit does not have RCA INPUT JACKS.

This problem can be caused by bad connections on the LVDS cable (the signal cable from the main pcb to the display control pcb.), sometimes cleaning the control pcb socket/cable plug can cure this. Other possibilities are: the display control PCB, or more probably, the display itself.

The difference between the 5100 and the 6400 is the video card inside. The 5100 has an ATI videoand the 6400 has Intel graphics.
Try going to the Intel site to download new drivers for the Intel graphics. There is a driver checker on their website.

How do i change to 1080p on my kdl-40s5100


It automatially adjusts to the signal it is getting. You have to be connected via HDMI to a source that is putting out 1080P (Blu-Ray, Playstation, etc)

How to improve picture quality sharpness?


PICTURE QUALITY IS USUALLY A FUNTION OF IT'S SOURCE. GARBAGE IN GARBAGE OUT.
IF YOU HAVE COMCAST OR SATELLITE AND IT IS NOT HD, YOU NEED TO HAVE AN HD SIGNAL FOR THE BEST PICTURE. THE BEST INPUT IS THRU THE HDMI INPUT. IF YOUR UNIT HAS A GOOD PICTURE WITH YOUR DVD UNIT, THEN THE HAVE A SIGNAL SOURCE ISSUE.
