Question about Sony Televison & Video
I have a Sony KDL-40VL160. I turned it on and the picture looks like pastel colors around all the images. Everything else works fine. I tested a DVD player in an auxiliary input and it does the same thing. What can I do to fix this problem?
You cannot fix the problem; having the same problem occur with both TV channel programming and using a DVD player means the TV has defect.

SOURCE: no picture on hdmi2
First of all connect the Direct TV box to HDMI 2 and see if it works there. If it does then the next step is to connect the DVD player to HDMI and see if it wors there. If not then connect the DVD player to the TV using the component inputs and if the DVD player works on those. If it does then maybe the HDMI interface in the DVD player no longer works as it needs to communicate with the TV.

Most likely this is caused by a defective main board. Changing the main board will fix the issue about 95% of the time.
To be absolutely sure, the voltages need to be checked on the power supply. If they are not the values listed in the service manual, then you should replace the power supply instead (accounts for the other 5% of the time).
