Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-40V3000 Television

Accessing External Inputs Settings

I don't understand how to access the Bravia's external inputs. Each number seems to be set to the cable box. I'd like to add my VR/DVD recorder, but the TV won't allow me. Where am I going wrong?

    Coldcut: I've been using the remote that came with the Sony Bravia. I press the HOME button, go to "External Inputs", but every number is assigned to the cable box itself. I'm still a bit baffled.

You have to use the remote control for the tv not the dvr.
the dvr control likely cannot control the tv inputs programming unless you can program the correct code. and most new lcd panels don't have the correct codes for existing remotes
access using ext on the tv remote.
you may have to go into the menu and tell the tv what the ext is set to ie.. a channel or a input.

Hi I have a l32wd12 r a TV and it will not turn on


If the clock is on then the unit is receiving power; maybe the external input feature (which tells the TV which outside source to display on the screen, e.g. cable TV, DVD player, VCR player, etc.) is not set to display the TV channels. On my Sony TV there is a button that displays TV setting options (e.g., Favorites, TV List, External inputs and settings). The external inputs function displays the options as video 1, video 2, etc., right up to video 6. My video 3 is for the VCR, video 4 is for the DVD, and video 5 is for the cable TV channels. If the TV is set for say video 3 and nothing is playing on the VCR, the screen will be dark (almost as though the TV is off). Your solution might be as simple as choosing the right external (video) input for the TV to receive the channel signals.

HDMI INPUTS DON'T WORK


It sounds like your set needs servicing. Are the other inputs working? HDMI port failures are indicative of a problem with the main board.

I am getting no sound


Check to see if speakers are switched off inside the set(menu)

If you have a DVD etc hooked to a rear input look to see if sound that way.

If you use a cable or sat box for signal it has audio settings that can cause this.

A few sets even have internal/external speaker settings

It could be a circuit problem but try the simple things first==a box can also cause this if hooked via the rear inputs of the set (unplug box and plug back to see if will reboot.)

PICTURE NO SOUND


A short list of things to check:

Sound in set or a box muted OR turned low.

Speakers in the set (see menu) switched on or off.

Internal/external switch set external

Does set have sound when a DVD is connected to rear inputs.

If connected with cable or sat box to rear inputs of set try unplugging both box and set--wait a short time and plug back to allow both to reboot.

Clearly it could be an audio problem in the set (Got the model number?) but explore all this and also make sure if set has a audio mode on remote it is set to stereo.

BRAVIA KDL-52XBR4 PARTIAL IMAGE DELAY


Three suggestions:

1. Try to hook cable direct without box to see if same problem---ie the box might cause this problem.

2. Check to see if it does it with DVD or when you change active inputs.
3. If number one contact cable provider as box may be your problem.

I have a small elemet tv with a en21645e remote control. My grandson did something to the remote and now I only get the local channels not cable channels although I have cable hookup


Hi there,

The little tyke has most likely pressed the INPUT button on the remote control and switched the TV away from the external input setting required for watching cable TV.

You did not state the model number of the TV and some TVs function differently with regard to the selection of external inputs, but you should be able to return to watching cable by pressing the INPUT button slowly but repeatedly until you can see the picture from the cable channels again. The INPUT button is located in the top right corner of your Element remote.

If an input selection menu appears on screen when you first press the menu button, use the arrow keys to highlight another input, then press ENTER to select it. I can't tell you which will be the correct input as I don't know the model number of the TV and it depends on which type of cable you are using to connect the TV to the cable box. You should try each input in turn until you are able to see the cable channels again. Please make sure the cable box is switched on when doing this!

If you are still having difficulty, please reply to me from within this page with the model number of the TV and the type of cable you are using to connect the cable box to the TV. I will then be able to provide exact instructions for switching your TV back to the cable input.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
BElectric
