Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-42WE655 42" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Sony WEGA Just received this monster from my parents to use in my first home. Cable set up fine and the picture is fine. Problem is with the DVD hookup. The back of the tv has Three VIDEO ports and a GAME and HD port. I have tried hooking Monster cables up to the VIDEO 1 port as well as the old school red, white and yellow connectors. The problem i see is that when you use the TV/VCR or Input button on the TV remote to access the aux units.....there is no display of a VIDEO component....the TV will only read "DVD, HD, GAME, ANT A, ANT B." How in the ****** do I get the TV to recognize the VIDEO 1 component? Thanks.

Super high pitch whistle from tv, only powering it off helps.

No picture?


I called sony, even though the manuel shows that you can use a component wire to hook up the set top box and hdmi for the tv and dvd sony claims that you can not do this. The cable box must also be wired with an hdmi cable going into the video 2 port.sony claims it doesn't work using component and hdmi together because the receiver is unable to up convert. I hope this helps. I have not tried it yet (i'm at work) we'll see what happens when i get home.

Video signal drops out


Well, I have a solution and a question. First, why do you have S-Video hooked up from the sat receiver? is it a non- HD unit? Does it have component out? if so use it. Next; your receiver, as awesome as it is,it is 3 model years old and the HDMI firmware that was used in 2005-06 was version 1.1 which unfortunately for all of us was a "failed" format when using DSS,Cable, or FIOS. The problem was passing the DHCP copyright protection format from one source thru another to a third. Sounds complicated, I know, but that's what the issue is. The Good news is; the human eye cannot tell the difference between 720p and 1080p on any TV set 50" or smaller, and that is a fact. and the 2600 would only convert from s-video to 1080i which is equal to 540p. So, to make a long story short and understandable, if you use a good quality component cable to your TV set (Monster, Phoenix Gold, Apatchure, etc) your picture quality will not suffer and there is no reason to be upset at your receiver since it was firmware provided by HDMI not Yamaha and was a problem on every receiver made with 1.1 firmware. So here's what you do Hook up your Sat receiver component (if you have it) S-vid if you have to, and any other sources that are going to pass video thru your receiver either s-vid,component, or standard vid. The only exception would be a blu-ray DVD. I would run HDMI direct to your TV, then run digital coaxial for audio to the DVD Digital audio input of your receiver. You have an awesome receiver that has lots of cool features and a bullet-proof electronics! enjoy it! Hope this helps. If you have any more questions, post a comment and I will help some more.
