Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-40S2000 40 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

Picture distortion Hi there - I hope someone can help me solve a very annoying problem. I have got a new 40 inch LCD Sony TV and when i play DVD via a scart lead or HDMI connection the faces on the screen sometimes appear to stretch and morph. It is really weird. I thought it might be the motion settings which are used for watching sports etc but the morphing still occurs. Whats even more strange is the same morphing happens when playing a DVD on my 20 inch Sony TV as well. Can anyone tell me what is causing this and can it be solved. I am hoping its just a setting somewhere. many thanks regards Neil

Check the settings on the dvd as if you set the dvd to 4:3 format for instance, the picture will be "squashed" to a letter box format and when you play on wide screen it will become "morphed" and mishaped. also if the tv is set to wide all the time, then this will cause a stretching effect. set the tv to auto picture size or "smart" as it is on sony's, with auto 16:9 on.

What causes colored stripes when playing commercial DVDs


Check your cables first to see if they are causing it. Faulty cables can cause all sorts of problems. If that doesn't solve it it could either be that the colour settings are wrong, for example NTSC instead of PAL or vice versa. Sometimes it is something to do with copy protection. In some cases counterfeit discs, or faulty discs. And in some cases a fault on the DVD player.

The top half of my Sony Bravia 32" screen plays as


Hi,
I'm sorry, it sounds problem with lcd panel (screen) that is defective and causing lower half distorted image. If tv is under warranty then call number written on warranty documents for warranty cover or lcd panel (screen) replacement would cost you approx 80% of new tv price.
Hope these info will help you.
Thanks.

Picture turns off sound is on


Hi Anya, Im sorry to hear of your difficulties but very happy to know im not alone. I have the same exact Sony model and the same exact problem. I wasnt sure if it was my Tv or my upconvert Sansung DVD player. I spoke with Sony assistance..and well..they were of no assistance. They blamed it on my HDMI cable, then the dvd's i was playing, then the dvd player itself. I ruled out all of the above. Mine goes black when i play a dvd in the upconvert format (720p or 1080i) otherwise known as digital..but the analog signal goes through fine. Luckily i am within my 30 days since I bought it, so now that I have seen your posting and am certain its a tv issue, I think i will return it and buy a Samsun tv (a great alternative for same price with only drawback being a glossy screen=not good for bright rooms but amazing color clarity). Sorry I dont have answer for the problem other than your not alone on this one. I have read other Sony users listing similar issues. I hope all goes well with you and wish you the best Matthew

This set does have a video problem. If it was bought locally, then, the retailer may have a 30 day return policy. If bought online or cannot be returned, then, contact Sony, for a service center in your location: http://eservice.sony.com/webrma/web/index.do Either way the set is to new to have a problem and you should get it resolved as soon as possible.
