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.

SOURCE: Kdl 52v5100 gets dark

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.

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. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.
Before going further; try a hard reset first. If it does not help you, replace the main digital board. There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; visit the site linked here. ..

I have a sony kdl-52v5100 when i turn it on green light comes on but no picture. i have to turn it off and on until i get a picture . what could be wrong ?can i fix it my self?


Fault with the main power supply regulator board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.

It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.
Contact the authorized service centre; to buy a genuine PS board.

Sony Bravia KDL 32EX400 stuck on channel one


It sounds that the main system memory IC has damaged. Before make it sure, just make a hard reset to this set, and check whether it helps you. To make it a hard reset, just unplug the AC cord from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 30 minutes or so.
If this do not help you, check and replace the main system memory IC.

No signal


Try to unplug set AND a box or receiver if in line and plug back after a wait to allow units to boot up.

HDMI can be sensitive if connected with the units including the set turned on. Not likely all HDMI would fail at same time--if problem ends up being IN the set---either the board with the connections would have to be replaced or the set subjected to a reset or even a firmware upgrade.
