Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-52W4100 52 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

Sony 52" Bravia LCD will drop picture and sound for 1-2 seconds

As I'm watching Verizon FIOS cable (with HD box and DVR, the picture and sound will go off completely for 1-2 seconds, then return. This has been happening on and off since I purchased the TV in Feb, 09. Verizon has changed everything in signal path (except old coax cable from Time Warner) and checked signals. DVR does not record this even, picture and sound continues from DVR playback when it had been dropped watching it live. Have not seen this with other non-HDMI sources nor has it been observed on non-HD channels. TV retailer is sending a tech to house next Saturday to check TV.

The only thing that i can think of is that the cables and connections are bad but if that is not the case it may be the internal components of the tv. my guess is that the tv was dropped or jumbled around while transported and what happened was internal components were broken or just mixed up so go to the retailer and get a refund or a new tv. hope this helps

Wont connect to verizon dvr box, its connected to the video out cable and the fios tv cable.


Make sure that the dvr is not outputting a HD signal to your set - if it is, your set will not work unless you change the signal to 480 from the HD setting.

BLACK SCREEN NO AUDIO POWER LIGHT IS ON


Since the screen is coming on I do not think it is a problem with the power supply. It sounds more like a problem with the audio/video main board of the set. Is the set under warranty?

HDTV goes blank when connected to Fios HD-DVR or Fios DTV recvr.


If you can first connect the Fios box via component and that will rectify the issue and still allow HD. HDMI is funny, if there is anykind of communication issues between the TV or the Fios box you see what happens. You might also call Samsung to see if there is ANY firmware/software updated for your TV specifically to fix such an issue with the Fios/Mortorola connection. If there isn't then the issue is the cable box since the TV works ok on HDMI with other devices.

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?

Picture goes bad when playing Verizon Fios DVR or On Demand


I had issues when I set an SD override for the box, it would sometimes display as bad input when switching to HD content(as well as display all menus in SD even with HD mode in settings.) Turning that off in settings (also turned off "modes" which has no description) stopped it and gave me guide/menus in HD.

We lose audio on our Sony BRAVIA KDL-52W4100


This problem appears to be an issue with numerous Sony Bravia owners of the same model. Although still seeking a soulution, it would appear that our cable provider (Verizon) has replaced all of their components and the Geek Squad from Best Buy where we purchased the unit, points the finger at Verizon. None of our other Fios-equipped TV's exhibit this problem so I am glad we bought the service plan with the TV and will continue to seek a remedy.

Sony Bravia


I have purchased KLV-40W400A Full HD but I am not satisfied with the picture quality. When the issue was raised sony is putting blame on Tata Sky and vise versa.
Kindly suggest.
