Question about Sony KDL52V5100 52 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

Sony KDL-52V5100, HDMI 1 shows no signal, HDMI 2 shows audio only. I have checked both devices feeding these 2 ports and they work fine in another tv. Is this a common problem? What can I check? The tv has worked great for several months until now.

I had this tv for almost a year, and I experienced this exact same problem about 3 or 4 times. The only thing you can do is turn the tv off and unplug it for a couple minutes. When you plug it back in it will work. This issue along with the intermittent sound issue on HDMI fed sources drove me crazy until I exchanged my tv for a KDL-52EX700. So glad to be done dealing with Sony customer support...because they're TERRIBLE. I had to email a VP at sony to get any results. The picture is beautiful on the V5100 for a lcd, but it's not worth dealing with the other issues...it's a flawed model. Hopefully your tv is still under warranty...you will have to call Sony and tell them your problem. They'll send a tech to come out, and he'll probably change out the motherboard..it won't fix anything. Then they'll probably send a tech out again to do the same thing when you keep calling...eventually they'll offer you an exchange. That's how it went for me...it was a 7 month nightmare.

Sounds like everything works. Your remote has an input menu. Have you cycled it around to the right component? i.e. HDMI1 or HDMI2, or DVD, even PC?
If not, try that.

Either the HDM firmware or the circuit board will be faulty. Connect it with an other known good HDMI cable, and make sure that the fault is not with the connecting cable.

No signal


Try to unplug set AND a box or receiver if in line and plug back after a wait to allow units to boot up.

HDMI can be sensitive if connected with the units including the set turned on. Not likely all HDMI would fail at same time--if problem ends up being IN the set---either the board with the connections would have to be replaced or the set subjected to a reset or even a firmware upgrade.

Hello, There is an update for your TV at Sony Support and I would strongly  recommend to call Sony Support to update your TV as firmware updating firmware is risky job for novice and TV firmware can be damaged and TV will shut down.
