SOURCE: BRAVIA TV KDL-40V2500

i had the same problem and the only way i could solve it was to disconnect power from the tv, let it "reset" then it would be ok for a bit. the problem went away entirely when the cable company updated its software for its hd box. might be coincidence....

also, pre-update, the resolution wouldnt automatically set correctly. If I turned on the tv to a hi def station, it would set to 480 and only set to 1080 when i changed to a normal station then back to the hd. then it was fine. again, after the update from the cable company this went away.

Try a master reset on the TV. With the TV powered on, prss and hold down the up button on the remote (there are 4 buttons grouped together for up down left and right) and while holding down the up button, press the power button on the TV. The unit should power off and then turn back on and ask you to select a language. Let me know if this helps and be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!

SOURCE: no picture when vga cable is connected

Most tvs can only handle a couple resolutions (ie 640x480) through the pc input. Even some HD tvs can only do 480. Check that your video is turned on and setup to the acceptable resolutions.

right click your desktop
go to properties
click settings tab
click on the 2nd monitor
make sure the box is clicked at the bottom

SOURCE: no signal sony bravia to dell laptop

Most laptops have a combination of buttons you have to press on the keyboard to get it to output on the monitor output. Try pressing the FUNCTION KEY or FUNC/FN key usually found in the bottom left hand side of the keyboard. Keep that button held down while press one of the number keys. Usually the number key will have a picture of a TV screen on it. Might be number 8 or 9. Press both keys at the same time a you can switch between laptop screen, Sony LCD or you can have both..

SOURCE: connecting TV via LAN to a laptop as a monitor

You can connect any laptop to any TV with an SVGA port by use of a pair of Baluns. These run about $49 each; you need two. Try MCM.com. They have several models. As long as your LCD has an SVGA or VGA monitor  input the baluns will emable you to send a signal from laptop to display.

My Sony Bravia Tv keeps losing wireless connection with my media server (Computer) I can reconnect but it happens randomly daily


Are you using wired or wireless network connections? Is your computer configured properly to act as a DHCP source? If you are using a router, is it configured properly. This sounds like a network issue at this point. More information about your network setup would be helpful.

How do i connect my laptop to sony bravia using UWA-BR100 ?


Connect the Laptop and TV with a *CROSSOVER* ethernet cable and then enable "Internet Connection Sharing" on the Laptop's "Wireless Network Connection".

To enable "Internet Connection Sharing", open the Network Connections folder ("Start > Run" type NCPA.CPL and click OK). Right click the Wireless Network Connection, select Properties and then the Advanced tab [XP] or Sharing tab [Vista]. Tick the box "Allow other network users to connect through through this computer's internet connection.

We have KDL-55EX711 Bravia and want to connect to the Internet. Shaw has given us a wireless modem but we can't connect. Help please!


I too just bought the KDL-55EX711 Sony Bravia and have connected it to the internet. This TV is awesome! To connect to the internet, however, you still need a wireless access point or wireless router to have that the TV can communicate with.

The TV comes with a wireless USB ethernet card "dongle" that you must plug into the USB slot on the side. After connecting the USB wireless card to the TV, connecting to the internet is just like connecting a laptop to a wireless network. You must go to the network settings menu on the TV follow the instructions there to get connected. In a nutshell, the TV will list the available networks to connect to. Find yours and try to connect to it. If your network is secured, you might need to enter a password that you have already set up for your wireless network. Finally you can either enter have the TV ask for an IP address and other settings or enter them yourself. You should not try to enter the IP address and other values yourself unless you know what you are doing.

Can't find network, wireless or otherwise.


Check network connections to see if the wireless adapter is enabled. May have to go start, control panel, system, device manager and look to be sure your network adapters are enabled and configured properly. If so, your wireless adapter could simply be turned off...usually there is a power switch just for that device in order to save power if you are not using wireless. You may have to go to the manual to understand where it is located.

Or your adapter could have died. If so, go buy a cheap USB wireless adapter and go back to work.

Hi,
Just to make sure im understanding the situation properly - you have a laptop and connect to the internet through a wireless network right? And then when you go to open up internet explorer or whatever program you use it basically says you're not connected to the internet.

It does sound like your wireless card has gone bad but when you say that it still has the icon down the bottom of the screen telling you that you're connected to the network, it sounds like it could be something else. It could be a range of things from there though, there are some viruses that corrupt something called the LSP and when that is broken it has the same symptoms as you described. Also it could just be a setting in your anti-virus. I know that Kaspersky Internet Security suite has a problem with its anti-hacker function that blocks internet from working like that.

Try disabling all of your anti-virus / firewall programs and then accessing the internet. If that works then its only a small problem. If it doesnt work and the icon is still there saying you are connected to the wireless then there is a small program to try running called LSP Fix, available at:

http://cexx.org/lspfix.htm

Other than that i'm out of ideas. Changing the wireless network card in a laptop does sound challenging though.

Hope my mini-essay helps,
Daniel
