Question about Sony Televison & Video
Hello Rick Waldeck,
Short of actually reading the OWNERS MANUAL
which I did look through... (page 20)..
All the references in there FLAT OUT tell
you to use your remote (why wouldn't you?).
There are a TON of FEATURES you cant get to
without a PROPER REMOTE.
I found NOTHING ELSE.
SONY SUPPORT would be your next logical
place to go... (see below) 1-800-822-SONY (7669)

SOURCE: Sony KDL-52V5100, HDMI 1 shows
I had this tv for almost a year, and I experienced this exact same problem about 3 or 4 times. The only thing you can do is turn the tv off and unplug it for a couple minutes. When you plug it back in it will work. This issue along with the intermittent sound issue on HDMI fed sources drove me crazy until I exchanged my tv for a KDL-52EX700. So glad to be done dealing with Sony customer support...because they're TERRIBLE. I had to email a VP at sony to get any results. The picture is beautiful on the V5100 for a lcd, but it's not worth dealing with the other issues...it's a flawed model. Hopefully your tv is still under warranty...you will have to call Sony and tell them your problem. They'll send a tech to come out, and he'll probably change out the motherboard..it won't fix anything. Then they'll probably send a tech out again to do the same thing when you keep calling...eventually they'll offer you an exchange. That's how it went for me...it was a 7 month nightmare.

Try whether you have the same problem when using a DVD player. Go to settings of menu, select picture settings, try adjusting the backlight level/brightness/contrast/sharpness/color etc. to your liking. Check whether you get the same problem if you use the same input on another TV.
