Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-40S2000 40 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

Can't get picture after connecting to receiver nad speakers

My Sony Bravia LCD TV has worked fine with a cheap Phillips DVD player. Our TV signal comes in through the local cable company.
We decided to add two speakers and a receiver to improve the sound for the TV, CDs/DVDs and so we could also have a radio. I have just connected the TV to the two (Bose) speakers and to a Sony receiver as well as to the DVD player Now I am stuck - I get sound from the speakers for CDs. DVDs and the TV. But, I am not getting a picture for the TV - I only get a picture when I play a DVD
Any ideas what I am doing wrong? Thanks

Sounds like something got confused in the re-wiring...if the TV signal from cable doesn't involve a box, then the co-ax should go straight to the "cable in" or "RF in" on the TV, and the sound equipment gets connected to output ports on the TV. Otherwise, try bypassing the video connections on receiver or whatever and go directly to TV...My surround sound has video in and out, but I've never used them, it doesn't matter.

Can't play audio CDs without having the TV on


Your description is not entirely clear, so I have to guess a little here, but I think what is happening is as follows:

1) You are using your DVD player as the source for the CD.
2) Your DVD is connected directly to the TV and the TV then connected to your receiver.

If the above are correct, then the problem is that the TV only has what is called an ACTIVE passthru for Audio signals. This means that the signal is process by the TV and tehn sent to the audio output jacks. With the TV off, the buffer ICs are not functioning, thus no output. Some older sets have what is called PASSIVE passthru.

I don't know your specific DVD model specs, so check to see if you have 2 audio outputs from the DVD (many do) and connect the other audio out directly to the receiver. That will resolve your problem.

Sony str-dg820. having a problem getting video on tv


Hook up Composite / Component Monitor Out wire from receiver to TV video input because receiver will not change analog input into HDMI
You need to connect receiver and TV through analog video terminals as above.
Actually you are expecting that receiver will convert DVD player and Xbox analog video input into digital HDMI signal for TV and This is incorrect.

The DVD player may have multiple output formats that can be displayed. Sounds like you have the composite output selected when you have the component output selected on the DVD player. Check the menu options on the DVD player and confirm they match the way you have the player connected
