Question about Televison & Video
The problem only occurs when using the TV when displaying video from the nettop - normal TV & input from Virgin Media through the same HDMI port work o.k.
There is no obvious answer. Do you mean it goes 'negative' i.e blacks are white and vice versa?
It could be any number of reasons ranging from faulty graphics adapter in the pc, dodgy hdmi cable, incorrectly set up laptop or a video driver update required etc.
Any chance you could try it with a combination of a different tv set, a different hdmi cable to see if it narrows it down. Try changing the nettop output settings to different resolution. Is the resolution set correctly?
You are going to need to narrow it down. Also open the graphics control panel and check the settings.

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

if you have a cable box then it is probably the resolution settings in the cable box, what type of cable box do you have

SOURCE: Sony BRAVIA KDL-40W4000
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.
colour temp: Warm 2 (although Warm 1 is less yellow and still fine)
noise reduction: off
mpeg nr: off
contrast enhancer: off
colour space: standard

I recently got this tv from somone because of this exact problem. I have found a solution that works for mine. You can check to see if it works for you also. What I did was take of the back cover. 3 screws (1 big one in the center and 2 little ones below it). Next look at the power board. If plugged in and turned on the red light on the power board should be lit up. If so your power board is fine. Next find the component that has 4 switches. I manually turned these on and turned the tv on and it worked! Has been working ever since!
