Question about Sony KDF-E50A10 50 in. LCD HDTV

Sony Grand Wega KDF-E50A10 showing msg about unauthorized content HDMI

From receiver to TV using component video cables everything is fine. I now have a digital cable set top box and have tried going from DVI to HDMI to the rcvr and then from the rcvr to the TV using an HDMI cable and I see a big message over the video about unauthorized source and after 10 seconds the whole screen goes to lime green. I talked to Best Buy and they said try taking the rcvr out of the loop. I did this and even replaced the set top box with one that I know works fine with another Sony TV going straight HDMI, no luck. I now have a set top box pushing HDMI to this TV and the TV is giving a slightly diff msg about the source not being authorized and that i should switch to Y P Br cables. Why cant I get HMDI to work?

Did you select the output of Cable box to HDMI out? I think it is in the menu setup on most cable boxes. It maybe active but if it isnt, try this.... Hold Menu button down and see if setup menu comes up and then toggle with arrow buttons on front of settop box and try and select HDMI if it is in there. Also make sure settings are on in the T.V. menu as well. Let me know and we will continue. Thank you ...GURU JAY

How should I connect a Sony Wega KF-50WE620 to an XBox360 ?


Since the TV accepts HD signals only via DVI and component inputs, the only logical way is to use the "Xbox 360 Component HD AV Cable" as show in the link below:

How to hook up your Xbox 360 or Xbox 360 to TV

The TV will not accept a VGA input. A cable converting HDMI to DVI would also require that you break out the L + R audio channels, too. The one I mentioned above does this all for you with no degradation in video signals.

HDCP is causing the trouble You experience. Try using other video input connection for same set. If it works fine that way, the problem is that the rights protection (HDCP) is acting as "police" to prevent copying or reproduce unauthorized content. If only the HDMI is connected (disconnect all other inputs/outputs) on some sets, could be work fine.

Authorized sony repair center told me the problem was the Q Box. Ever heard of this? Part runs about 300 bucks. TV is out of warrenty as it is 2 years old. Do you think it is worth it to fight sony and get them to replace the part or just fix the TV?

Part Number is A1167541A, service rep called it a Q Box in the diag, however the web says its the b block assmy.
