Question about Sony KDS-55A3000 55" HDTV

1 Answer

Bluriness I just purchased this model (believe its the same one, bravia in 1080 p). I hooked up my directv box which is not hd and the picture is very distorted. When you view the guide there is shadowing around all of the letters and it is difficult to even look at. Is this bluriness due to the fact that my direct tv is not in HD? I knew hd improved certain channels but did not think it influenced things like tv guides, etc. Should I contact the seller about this, or am I bound to see fuziness when running non hd devices on an hdtv? Thanks so much!

    I also just purchased a sony 55a3000 and hooked it up to my comcast cable Hd Dvr and the non HD but digital channels are very blurry or fuzzy and also some of the HD channels mostly the local channels are a bit fuzzy too . But the HD national shows such as shows like the Emmys, nascar, national news, American Idol , etc. in HD and HD movies on cable or disc are great . Any Sugesstions?

ONLY HD picture does not fit on WS-55805


To be kind you are wasting your time, This is a 1st generation HD set not designed for the modern equipment you are using---You cannot turn a Model A Ford into a Roll Royce.

I has only one HD input designed for a set top HD box providing it a 1080 I signal.

When I set the Directv receiver box to the 1080i resolution mode, the picture on the TV is ghost mode with red and blue outlines around each figures. please help. When I set the receiver to the 480i...


This may sound strange but I have seen something like this once before in this model----In the customer menu select Convergence---DO THIS WITH NOTHING CONNECTED TO THE SET FOR SIGNAL-- IF THE multipoint convergence looks ok---I saw one of these sets where the problem was the box that was giving the set signal---easy to find out if you have them swap that box out for another---The TV does not know(convergence wise) whether you are 480 or 1080---yes, sometimes the set needs to be adjusted in each of these modes for Convergence---the set I saw the convergence was ok in 480 but out the window in 1080----he had another box in another room and when we swapped it the problem was gone.

Let me know if this helps you---in the 480 you can confirm this by hooking a DVD etc and if that looks good---suspect the box.

If you have any questions let me know--I am here to help.

I have a Samsung HLP5063wx xaa and I am getting a HDMI not supported when I hook up my HD-DVR, any help on how to resolve this, PLEASE!!!


I fixed it, if anyone is having this problem, you will have to tell your Directv box to only accept 720p resolution, I only have one line hooked up to my Hd-DVR right now and I had to tell the Directv box that it was on a Single tuner not Dual, I re-booted the directv box and everything works. I hope this helps anyone w/ an older model DLP, It took me hours on the internet to find the answers I needed.

Picture problem


I have an older Mitsibutishi 52" HD 1080. I recently upgraded my cable box to DirecTV HDTV. When I change to format to view in 1080 the TV goes from full screen to what seems to be wide screen with a black bar on the top and bottom. If I change the format to 480p I get a full screen; but the picture has a "redish tint" over it as if looking through sunglasses...I tried everything in my TV manual even call the cable company. Any suggestions?

Off Air?


The Scientific Atlanta box was a cable box and recieved CATV signals. The Direct TV box is satellite only. You might check if it has a built in ATSC tuner for off air digital signals. Direct TV in most locations offers the major networks in HD format.
