Sony KDFE50A10 Just shows snow, buttons do not repond

I have a Sony KDFE50A10, when I turn it on, it just shows snow (and I dont mean the weather channel). None of the buttons respond (TV/Video, volume, channels). I tried using a remote, and I can turn it on and off, but I cant change the inputs or get a menu or anything, Any idea what is causing this and how to fix it?
Thanks, Jose

    No, I was using a universal from my Time warner box. No, I dont have the owners manual. I will give the memory stick thing a try, but I dont see it working. The tv/video button is not working, so I cant change which inputs I am accesing. I took the whole tv apart, I didnt see any disconnected hook-ups, (ie from the front panel to the rear board. Do you think Sony would still cover the warranty if I dont tell them that I took it all apart and put it back together?

Do you have the correct remote? That would be my first question. But most sony remotes will change channels and turn set on and off. Do you have the owners manual? If i'm not mistaken, that thing has a memory stick input doesn't it? Try that and let me know what happens. Thank you and good luck. Jay

    No, don't mention it. But look for any sony remote and try changing the video inputs that way. Did you say the buttons on the front panel don't work? They should. Make sure in the menu you don't have them disabled. Let me know. Jay

Sony KDL-V32XBR1 Displays only snowy picture


Here are a few more troubleshooting steps you can try when your TV picture is just snow. I see that you have already rebooted your TV, but did you turn your set-top box off and on, too?

1. Does the picture show when you play a DVD?
2. Check all of the connections between the TV, outlet and set-top box and make sure everything is secured.
3. Is your TV set to the correct channel (typically 3, but in some areas 2 or 4)?
4. Press any key on the remote to see if the correct mode lights up. (Ex: if you have cable, the cable button should light up). If it doesn't, press the correct mode's button to regain control and change channels.
5. Call your service provider and make sure it's not an overall service outage.
6. Do you have sound but no picture? If so, it could mean a backlight failure.

For more suggestions, see TV black screen or snowy screen for troubleshooting and solutions. I hope this helps!

Settin TV to AV


Look at your remote for a button called "input options" and press that button while watching your screen to see the various choices available. Everytime you press that button, you should see a change on the screen from one choice of input method to the other. It should says things like "AUX, video 1, video 2, hdmi, AV - ect. Keep pressing that button until you see a picture of find the AV input method you want to keep and that should solve your problem.

6 times red light blink shows error in power supply (GT) board because of no 12 volts output for some reason.
Replace GT board to fix the problem.
Let me know if you need GT board part number info.

I have a sony kdfe50a10 and the screen has been invaded by blue splotches. What's up?


Hi,
The Light engine (also known as an optical block) which is essentially the projector part of your TV is failing and needs to be replaced. Sony has extended the warranty on some of its models so you can contact Sony to see if yours is still covered. If not it is outrageously expensive to fix easily over $1000.
