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

"Display connected non-HDCP compliant" error


The HDMI cable was causing "Display connected non-HDCP compliant" error message to appear.
When I reconnected my DVD to TV using regular cable with 3 color connectors(i don't know what is the proper name for that cable) that error message no longer appears on my screen and I was able to watch my movie normally.

Some of these models have this problem from production.
I would recommend to contact SONY and tell them the problem they may be able to fix your TV at no cost, since some of their Light engines have a recall but I'm not sure if your model number is one of those.

If you want to fix the TV yourself you need to replace the light engine and that requires advanced skills for this product

hope that was helpful
thank you

Colours turns blue and green from HD channels


The most likely cause of your problem is the cable box HDMI output. If you have some extra cables, try connecting the TV to the cable box using the component connections. I'll bet your problem will go away. Don't let the cable company lie to you; I work on Sony TV's everyday and see plenty of cable box HDMI issues. Some of my customers have exchanged their boxes 4 or 5 times and still have HDMI issues. Your best bet is to use the component outputs or switch to Dish or Direct TV, as they DON"T have HDMI problems. If this solution works, be sure to rate it. Thanks!
