Question about Sony KDL-32S3000 32 in. LCD Television

Open Question

Sony KDL-32S3000 HDMI ports have stopped working!

I own a Sony KDL-32S3000 LCD and I usually have it connected to my PC via a HDMI capture card as I regularly record video game trailers/walkthrough videos.

I recently moved house and so, had to disconnect everything. However, upon reconnecting everything and trying to get audio and video running from my x-box 360 to my pc and then to my tv via HDMI, I lost all signal.

I played around thinking I may have put the video input/output the wrong way round and eventually gave up to try another day. As a last resort, I couldn't understand why I wasn't getting video on my PC monitor through the software I always use so, decided to connect my x-box 360 directly to my tv only to find that no matter what HDMI port I connected it to, there was no signal!

I've got 5 different wires and all of them give me the same result. However, if I connect my x-box 360 to another TV via HDMI, all the cables send a signal that is picked up by the tv and display both video and audio so, I know it's not a problem with the console or the wires.
As a precaution, I also tried the composite and HD cables that came with the x-box 360 to see if I could get and image with sound directly to the tv and everything worked fine.

This leads me to believe it's a problem with the tv's HDMI ports but, I'm also wondering if my PC was able to somehow cause any damage to both the tv itself?

If it's any help, I'm using an Intensity Pro capture card for the video recording and until tonight, never had a problem with it!

Any help would be appreciated as this is driving me mad!
Thank you!

No, that will not damage the input. But if you are using component input and the green wire is off or not connected correctly it will prevent a picture from coming on. The green is the luminance and carries the main picture signal.

SOURCE: hdmi port stopped working on sony bravia

I have a Sony Bravia model KDL-46s5100 that had the same problem. All HDMI ports stopped working. I don't know why this works but unplug the TV for about 30 sec, then plug it back in and hold down the power button on the tv for 10 seconds. Like I said I don't know why this works but it worked for me. Good luck.

SOURCE: How easy is it to repair a POWER FAILURE TO SONY

Usually it takes a little knowledge of basic electronics and some soldering skills. If you have these, then it never hurts to try to fix it yourself. Its already not working. Just make sure to work safe, unplug before working on it and close up before turning on. If you think its a power supply you might be able to see some blown capacitors, or you might get lucky and find a blown fuse inside.
Hope this helps

The instructions are in your USER MANUAL found at the following link:

In general though you should lay the tv screen side down on something VERY soft and flat like a bed so that the screen doesn't get scratched at all.

Then find the 3 philips head screws that hold the base to the tv. They should have replaced into the proper holes in the back of the tv when the base was removed initially. Unscrew and remove them and then place the base into position on the tv.

Once the base is fitted into position, insert and tighten the 3 screws again. The tv can now be lifted vertical again and placed where desired. Be sure not to press too hard on the actual LCD screen part when handling.

Good luck and post back how you make out.
