Question about Sony KP-51WS500 51" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Display always on the screen.

The input display (ex:VIDEO 5) is constantly on. I noticed this shortly after a tech, sent out by Best Buy, came to adjust red arched lines on darker pictures. Now warranty is up. Can anyone help? Note: one tech told me that running A/C in home a lot will cause these lines and needed adjustment. Just FYI if its true!

    As embarrassed as I am, thank you for the easy fix for the display problem. I got complacent since I never use the tv remote. Thanks again!

No display problem for intel D865GSA board


What are you formatting ? Have you changed the RAM. Does tour system work in its original configuration ? You do not say what the pattern of the beeps is. Before the display disappears, is there a message sent to the screen ?
From the manual
http://download.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d865gsa/sb/d5600601us.pdf

Whenever a recoverable error occurs during POST, the BIOS displays an error message

describing the problem (see Table 53). The BIOS also issues a beep code (one long

tone followed by two short tones) during POST if the video configuration fails (a faulty

video card or no card installed) or if an external ROM module does not properly

checksum to zero.

An external ROM module (for example, a video BIOS) can also issue audible errors,

usually consisting of one long tone followed by a series of short tones. For more

information on the beep codes issued, check the documentation for that external

device.

There are several POST routines that issue a POST terminal error and shut down the

system if they fail. Before shutting down the system, the terminal-error handler issues

a beep code signifying the test point error, writes the error to I/O port 80h, attempts

to initialize the video and writes the error in the upper left corner of the screen (using

both monochrome and color adapters).

If POST completes normally, the BIOS issues one short beep before passing control to
the operating system.

Can't get to full screen


You should be able to navigate this through the buttons on your TV. Hit menu and pull up video settings, then display. It can be set for automatic or constantly in one format (ex. 16:9, 4:3 ratio). Full screen would be 16:9 or letterbox.

The set may have a self check mode or error buffer--most of these that do with the set turned off: Display, 5, vol. down and then power.

If it has the buffer a box will appear in middle of screen with several items listed-----------all should have a 0 to the right of them---a number indicates a error detected and noted.

If no error found or no display for that contact Sony for the reset code which usually is gained by going into tech menu (different from error menu) and with remote pressing 7 and enter---this does a hard reset and returns set to all factory defaults--if that did not cure it you have a interesting trouble...........

I have a apex 32-inch tv model (AT3208S), This tv was connect to a converter box, the other day electric power went out in our area for about 8 mins or less, once the power was back on the tv screen was...


OK, I have one of these TVs, and here's a thought: There's nothing wrong with the TV nor with the cable converter box. Please bear with me. Since I don't know how much you may know about TVs in general and this one in particular, I'm going to assume you know nothing and go from there.

This TV has several different "inputs", which are ways a signal can be transferred from its source to the TV, where it "outputs" the video image. I believe this particular TV has 5 different inputs: In descending order of the quality of the video signal, there're one S-video input (a 4-pin video connector plus red & white audio), three composite video inputs (3 connectors each: yellow video and red/white audio--audio connectors are the same for both s-video and composite), and one coax connector (a single large screw-on connector with a little wire sticking up through the center of it) for a total of five different inputs.

The problem with these Apex TVs is that they always default to the Antenna/coax input first when they are restarted. Most people use the TV to display an input signal (like the cable box or a DVD player) connected either to the S-video or to one of the 3 composite video inputs, not to the coax input, which just displays the channel numbers from 1-125 when it's set to do that (hit the "display" button on your remote to toggle showing the channel numbers for the coax input). If there's no signal coming into the coax input, the screen with appear blue. (If it's blue, it simply means it's not getting a signal via the input to which the TV is currently set. You can turn off the blue screen in the menu settings, but then you'll just get a blank screen. It's probably better just to leave the screen blue; at least you can tell the TV's actually trying to display something that way.)

You have to manually select the proper input by pressing the "video" button either on the remote (lower right corner) or the "video" button directly on the TV (hidden control panel under the middle of the margin around the bottom of the TV screen. You'll have to press on the door, and the whole control panel rolls open to reveal another set of composite inputs and some buttons. The video button is the one farthest to the left.)

Anyhow, by pressing the video buttons, you'll cycle through the various inputs. Assuming your cable converter box is functioning properly, powered on, receiving a signal from the cable company, and connected to the TV via a(n) appropriate wire(s) connected correctly, you should see the output from the cable box on the screen when you cycle through to display the proper video input.

Another possibility: the power outage fried the input to which your cable box was connected on the back of the TV. If that's the case, your cable box would probably also have sustained damage. You can check to see if the various video inputs on the TV are working by connecting different source inputs (like a BluRay/DVD/VCR player, video game console, video camera, etc.) to one of the other inputs and see if you get a picture when the TV is set to the appropriate inputs. (Remember, the "video" button is what selects/changes/cycles through the various video inputs.) One of the sets of inputs went bad on my TV. I just use the other ones.
