Problems using component video cables with Sony KDF-50WE655

Ever since i purchased this TV, all i have been using is a simple S-Video cable to watch DVD. Now i'm attempting to use the component video connectors (video 5 & video 6) in the back but not getting any pictures. I still can hear sounds but the picture is like a messed up static with dots and zig-zag lines. Please help. Thanks!

Lost some stations on my Sony lcd TV.

It is a possibility if you are using a cable tv service, without a converter box, that the cable company has limited the number of station you are able to receive. It seems to be their new ploy to get subscribers to get a box since the digital changeover. I also may be that the TV's tuner memory may have to be re-programmed. Go into the menu and go through the channel scan process and see if they return. If they don'y it may be a tuner issue. An easy fix is to get a cable box!
Hope this has been helpful

Sony psp slim component cable trouble

Okay the cables you bought they have five plugs. I assuming your tv doesn't have component input only RCA connections (RED, WHITE, YELLOW). SO in that case you bought the wrong jacks. You may want to keep them anyway if you upgrade your tv. Because these "component" cables is the only way you can play video games on the big screen and also has to be hd, but it also will be able to play music, view pics, and watch videos. But that's a different subject.

You need to buy RCA cables for your slim. Keep in mind though you will only be able to watch movies, pics, and music. You won't be able to play video games. Once you have those it's not hard to connect. All you do is from the XMB menu go to display settings click on "switch video output" and it should connect from there. Any more problems please feel free to ask.

Vertical multicolored lines covering the whole screen

Just a shot in the dark, but if you are using component video cables, double check that they are in the correct inputs and outputs. If this doesn't work or you are not using component video cables then I don't have any other ideas as of now.

Sony model KDF-E4210 TV works fine for about 20-30 minutes on HMDI video 6. After that, the HD channels scramble (wavy video). I have swapped out and used the component cables and the same thing happens. Time Warner came out to check their box and all checks out.

Coincidentally, this started after I purchased a Wii and go back and forth from Video 2 (wii) to Video 6. Now is happens just on Video 6 after 20-30 minutes. Could this be an issue with the TV?
