Question about Sony KV-35S42 35" TV

1 Answer

Sound but no picture

We recently had a cable guy install a DVR with our tv. It worked great that afternoon. The next morning we turned on the tv and a picture appeared. 10 seconds later the picture shrunk, developed lines horizontally, and moved to the top of the screen until it disappeared. After turning it off and back on it either does the same thing or doesn't show a picture at all. The sound is fine. Cable guy says the signal and DVR are fine. What's much to repair? The picture began to crunch up on the horizontal and the screen goes black but the sound is fine. Banging on the top of the T.V. several hard thumps will sometimes gets the picture back for a minute or two and does the same thing with the horizontal and it goes again. Sometimes we can get it to stay for hours at a time but once you turn it off it starts all over again.

I would suggest to leave your directtv hd/dvr box connected the way It is.
The HD Colorstream 1input on your TV should work just fine.
This TV does not have an HDMI input but you can buy an adapter and connect to DVI/HDCP IN and that might be able to get 1080i video resolution on your TV.

DVR/TV connection

With the RGB you have to run seperate audio ,I think you have ran the seperate cables for the sound but they are in the wrong place.try changing the RW from the DVR to the TV and you should get sound from them.The unfortunate truth about the HDMI is that the HDMI format has a problem effectivly communicating between components.I am a Directv certified High Definition technition and %50 of the TV's that I connect the HDMI to will not receive the signal.One trick that I have found that works is to make sure you have a picture on the RGB then connect the HDMI.Once you have these connected ,turn your TV off and unplug the power cord from the DVR for 30 sec then plug the DVR in and wait 5 minutes for it to power up then turn your TV on and switch to your HDMI input.This method sometimes works to "Jumpstart" the HDMI input on the TV .There is no guarantee that this will work but is sounds like for now this is your only option,GOOD LUCK.
