Can't get signal from Sony CD/DVD Player through HDMI cable to Sony Bravia TV

  • shipmate Mar 13, 2008

    I have Direct TV from satellite antenna connected to HDMI 2, and DVD player connected to HDMI 1. Satellite signal comes thru okay, but I can't get TV to recognize the DVD signal. Could it be I haven't programmed the remote properly?

    I am using the Sony TV remote that came with the HDTV set. When I select XMB External Input and go to Devices, it says no device is hooked up to HDMI 1. I have a brand new HDMI cable going directly from the DVD player to HDMI 1 on the TV. When I switch the TV input to HDMI 1, the message is "no signal supported."

The Bravia is picky about the HDMI inputs.

    A lot of times it is because the HDMI source is employing encryption that the Bravia doesn't understand or support. This is more of a problem with cable boxes, though. And one would think that Sony's own DVD player could talk to its TVs.

    Have you connected any other component to this HDMI input successfully?

    Are you using another remote, like the Logitech Harmony?

DVD hooked up to sony bravia tv: have dvd power on, but can not get any set up menus (or anything) from dvd to show on tv screen.Unable to set up remote as menu does not appear on tv screen.


Hook up the player with RGB (Red-Green-Blue or component) cables and try the picture. If everything works OK, then go to the menu and turn on the HDMI output and set the resolution (if needed).
Not every HDMI unit works with every HDMI TV. You may also have a bad HDMI cable. On a DVD recorder, you may have your HDMI cable connected to HDMI IN. You must use HDMI out.

Hi, Just bought a 26" sony bravia tv. I don't use cable or satillite. I just need to find out what kind of cable I need to connect my panasonic DVD player to the TV and which port do I plug it into?


The best quality would be a HDMI cable, if your DVD player has a HDMI port on the back.

Any of the HDMI ports on the TV can be configured to take the audio over HDMI (digital audio) or over a separate rca stereo patch cable (menu option in the TV for analog audio).

So if your DVD has HDMI, just buy a HDMI cable and you're done. If you cannot figure out how to switch the audio input, there is no big harm in just installing a separate RCA patch cable between the two for the sound.

The next-best would be a component-video cable (Red/Yellow/Green) RCA cable, with a separate red/white RCA audio cable.

Alternately, if your DVD has a S-video port, that is comparable to component video. Then you would need a separate audio cable as well.

Last but not least, if your DVD player is ancient, it may only have a yellow video out connection, then red/white for audio. You then just need a standard yellow/red/white RCA component cable.

Hdmi port stopped working on sony bravia KDL-32L4000, when I connect my ps3 or direct tv trhough hdmi cables I will just get a blank screen that will say no signal.


I have a Sony Bravia model KDL-46s5100 that had the same problem. All HDMI ports stopped working. I don't know why this works but unplug the TV for about 30 sec, then plug it back in and hold down the power button on the tv for 10 seconds. Like I said I don't know why this works but it worked for me. Good luck.

Bravia indicates no signal from Sony BDP S350 DVD


I once had a similar problem, although with a different TV. It was insufficient to just power down the TV -- I had to unplug the TV so that it would re-initialize. It solved my issue.

Volume Problem with my TV and Home Theater system


I had the same problem with mine.The solution I found was to use an optical audio cable rather than the red and white RCA audio jacks. Hope this helped.

HDMI hook-up


Try scrolling thru the TV's video inputs. When you get the right one, the circuit will automatically recognize it and play provided it's connected properly

Sony Bravia KDL 40X2000 HDMI both cutting out


Sounds like a handshake problem with the HDMI outputs on the devices. I have never seen BOTH HDMI inputs have the problem. It could be a problem in the TV where the HDMI signal is processed or the HDMI jacks may have been stressed and this is why you have an intermittent problem. By stressed I mean that the jacks have been bent by inserting the cables wrong or pulling up or down on the cables when they were plugged into the unit.
