Question about Sony BRAVIA Televison & Video

1 Answer

Colours invert every 20 minutes

I'm running the Sony Bravia as an external display from my PC over HDMI, at regular intervals the picture will cut out then return in inverted colours which will only go away if you change the source e.g. from HDMI 1 to 2 and back again. I have checked that my computers power saving options are off (display never sleeps, computer never sleeps) Have you heard of this or a similar problem before? I am running the TV as a mirror of my desktop, perhaps the difference in screen ratio (16:9 to 16:10) has something to do with it?

Fault at its main digital board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.

In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.

SOURCE: my sony bravia has mixed colours on the left side

If its less than a year ago, Take it back, to the retailer, as there is a statutory 12 month guarantee on the majority of goods in the UK. If its older than 12 months, you could try having a look inside the back, may be its a dodgy connection from the main AV board to the Screen, disconnect the connector have a look for any undue signs, and reconnect it at both ends. Failing that, you may have to bite the bullet and take it to a TV repairer for them to tell you its a Dodgy AV/RF board, which are now obsolete, or you may be luckier than me. If that is the case, try looking on ebay for AV board for you TV model/make. Hope that helps a bit

How can i connect my hp pavillion s5610y to my bravia tv


This is a bit complicated since there is no HDMI output capability to the PC, only VGA and DVI. First, check to see if the Bravia has one of its HDMI ports listed as DVI capable. If it does, it should have accompanying audio jacks (red/white) for it. What you would need to get is two different cables for interface. The first is a DVI-to HDMI cable to run from the PC DVI port to the Bravia DVI-compatible HDMI port. You cannot run the DVI to a regular HDMI port because if you do you will get only picture and no sound. DVI outputs, unlike HDMI outputs, do not carry the audio signal. A DVI-compatible HDMI port on a TV set will connect the video from the HDMI port and the audio from the reserved audio port accompanying it. The second cable you need will be a mini stereo audio plug to RCA jacks. This will connect between the PC audio out (green), and the DVI audio plugs on the set. See pictures for cables below

Once you have this done, selecting the appropriate HDMI port on the set should result in audio and video getting to the unit. If you only need the video (you are going to use the PC speakers), then you don't need the audio cable and you can use any HDMI port, but you cannot control the volume using the TV set remote. You would need to use the PC volume settings. (Just as an afterthought if the set has no DVI-compatible HDMI port).

Bravia & Sky+HD, aspect problem


There is nothing wrong with you Sony Bravia TV and it suppport all HD and SD formats.

Are you viewing the HD version of the channel when it is showing a standard defination show. e.g SKY1 HD instead of SKY1.

This means that regular standard defination shows are in a 4:3 ratio and does not fill the whole screen. In order to view these type of shows you will need to tune to regular channel instead of the HD version.

You can check if a show is brocast in HD by going into the tv guide and checking for the HD symbol in the programme symposis.

Sony Bravia KDL52XBR5 picture blanks out using HDMI port


I think this has to do with the cable box not liking the encryption thing going on with the sony tv. The cable boxes probably don't understand it fully and therefore you have intermittant problems. I would just use component inputs. Which are analog and no encryption problems. I hope this was helpful. I bet it doesn't happen using a sony DVD Player or a blue ray DVD Player either. Sony, Sony, Sony.....Good stuff...but they have their moments. Let me know if u come up with a fix for this and then i will post it on my fix it list.. Thank you again..GURU JAY
