Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-46S2000 46 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

HDTV no over the air signal.

I have a 46" Sony Bravia with a built-in HD Tuner that I bought on April '09. I have Dish Network and run the signal via a video input to my HDTV (as opposed to using the coaxial cable). After I bought the TV, I got a nice antenna and then ran the auto program. The TV picked up about 20 channels in HD. Several months went by being able to watch HD channels over the air and Dish when I switched to my video output. About a month ago I noticed that there is no reception for the HD channels that I used to be able to watch. So, is the problem with my antenna? My HDTV's built-in tuner? Or do I need to get Dish's HD package now in order to enjoy HD channels?

No... Andraade11,

There is nothing exclusive of using a HDMI port...
you can have it all.

You are still able to switch right back to your old configuration...

I believe you merely need to step through your
"SOURCES"

Unless Dish us incredibly behind the curve
they used a HDMI to bring their signal to your set...

and add ($$$) a LOCAL "OPTION" into
their feed... but if you ALREADY had an antenna
hooked up... you should be able to switch right back to that source... or a VIDEO PLAYER obviously IF you have one)

and/or a SECURITY screen
(if you have a compatible camera or server)

Etc. etcetera...

SOURCE: Sony BRAVIA KDL46S2010 Sound and Pix not in sync - in HDTV channels only

This is a software issue with both the TV manufacture and the cable box provider. This will only be fixed when the cable company and TV manufacture sit down and work out their problem. Some cable company has taken the first step by updating cable boxes with different software.

SOURCE: Moved Sony Bravia TV, now will not turn on at all

The warranty on this set should be for 1 year. Return it for warranty service. Unless the set was dropped, moving it should not have effected anything. DO NOT open the set sas that would void the warranty.

SOURCE: PC input to Sony Bravia - from Sony Vaio Laptop - unsupported sig

Hi Julie,
There are a couple ways to go here. I'll give you the procedures step by step. If you want clarification on anything, just ask. If I make an assumption that is wrong, stop me and let me know. The more you know, the easier this will be for both of us.

First I'd like to double check on MisterSony's diagnosis. Refresh rates that are too high end up as a black screen on many LCD models.

This is my first assumption, the display settings are currently for both monitors. Your original screen is still functioning.

If so,

  • Right click on your desktop
  • Click Properties
  • Click the Settings Tab
  • Click the Advanced button
  • Click the Adapter Tab
  • On the lower part of that tab, there should be Refresh Rate. If it is not at 60 Hz, try to change it to 60 Hz.
  • Click OK
  • Click Apply
  • A pop up may appear asking if you want to keep the changes. Accept the changes.
Get back to me with the results. If it was already set at 60Hz. We go to the next step.
Mike

PICTURE SEEMS TO BE BLURRED WHEN ITEMS MOVE FAST ON SCREEN, ESPECIALLY PERSONS IN CLOSE UP.


The Sony Bravia KDL-32BX320 generally gets excellent reviews (4.5 stars out of 5) from owners, so I have to wonder what you're watching.

This is an HDTV and should excel when provided an HD signal to display. SD (standard definition) signals often look worse on an HD display than on an SD display. An HD signal is only available via the following ways (reference the image below):9_27_2011_4_28_11_pm.jpg
1) An "over the air" (UHF / VHF) antenna is connected to the cable / antenna input and there is a broadcaster of HD content nearby (only an over the air antenna can input HD signals to this jack - no cable boxes, etc.).

2) An HD Cable TV, DirecTV or Dish Satellite set top converter, Blu Ray Disk Player (or other HD source is connected via HDMI or Component RGB jacks.

3) An HD video played back from a computer hard drive connected to the VGA jack (when the computer is equipped with a modern processor and video card).


You will NOT be able to view HD video if:

1) The source material is a SD (non-HD) source. An over the air antenna will not provide HD signals if the broadcaster does not have HD content to show or is not capable of broadcasting in HD. Digital is not necessarily HD.

2) The source material (other than over the air antenna) is connected via Antenna / Cable jack.

3) The source material is connected via Composite jacks.

The USB jack is generally not an input for motion pictures, but may display stills - depending on the TV's ability to play the format they are stored in (jpeg, gif, bmp etc.).

Hopefully, this will help you solve the problem you're having with the picture. Good luck!

Hi, You have guessed it right. (tuner fault) I would suggest you can get a set top box, they have tuners built in. Just set your TV on ch 3 or 4 and you can run from the box. You can get them from your cable company or dish network. Good luck.

Although we would not be able to assist you with power issue you're having with your TV, I can assure you that the issue with your new HD Insignia TV not turning on has nothing to do with the DISH Network receiver you have connected to it.

This problems are not tv firmware.Firmware is for basic updating software,never cures hardware problems.This problems is the tv Tuner signal board itself,exchange it to another tv or ask for warrenty repair,just make sure they change the whole tv Tuner signal board.This problems could be anythings in tv Tuner signal board circuitries causing this problems.

The tv can plug in on 220 power voltage


If you have your owners manual check the specs, however most Sony Bravia units have universal power supplies (120V-240V 50/60Hz). If the TV was built for North American use the tuner may not be able to decode the signals in Europe or Asia, they will need to be converted to standard HD signals (1080i, 720p etc.connected with HDMI or Component inputs) to be displayed.

Off Air?


The Scientific Atlanta box was a cable box and recieved CATV signals. The Direct TV box is satellite only. You might check if it has a built in ATSC tuner for off air digital signals. Direct TV in most locations offers the major networks in HD format.
