Question about Sony KDF-E42A10 42 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Hdmi issue as well

I have had the same problem... I used to use a HDMI to DVI hookup for my cable, but recently had a DVR upgrade and it is a HDMI to HDMI. I bought a cable and at first it worked, but then I had to disconnect it and when I reconnected the signal was dead. I even exchanged the cable to no avail... I am very confused on what I should try next.

    I'm also having the same issue - I am connecting my HDMI cable from a working PS3 to my KDF-E42A10 and getting nothing on the input screens but a small amount of noise on the bottom of the screen.

    You suggested that there was a possible software upgrade I can attempt to possibly correct this issue. Can you please elaborate?


    Thank you for any help you can provide.

Hello sushy99.
You need to do what is called a software upgrade. This will fix the problem. The software upgrade is free. I can tell you how to do that. There is another possibility that your HDMI board is defective. If after the upgrade, and you still have the same problem...then you must change that board.

Best regards

How do I convert an HD tv that doesn't have HDMI to be able to use this format?


There are adapters that can covert the HDMI signal to a DVI plug, but at a price. DVI does not handle audio as does HDMI. Most devices that have HDMI outputs will not parallel the audio to allow you to use adapter plus audio cables. You have most likely come upon this issue of obsolescence in you current device.

How can I connect Panasonic TH-37PX60U Flat panel plasma tv to my computer?


It will depend on your video output options on the computer. If you have HDMI output, just use an HDMI cable and an audio cable (this will need to be a 3.5 mm to RCA audio cable). If you have a DVI output, use a DVI to HDMI cable and the audio cable (or a DVI to HDMI adapter and either a DVI or HDMI cable depending on which side you want to put the adapter). If you only have VGA out from the computer, use a VGA to DVI adapter and the DVI to HDMI connection and the audio connection. (Theoretically this should work but each adapter will have some signal loss issues.)

Some graphics cards have a video output, S-video or Component video, which would also connect to your TV with the audio cable. (Read your cards manual for more information)

I hope this helps.

(For DVI to HDMI cables, you will need to check if you have a single link or dual link DVI output. The wrong cable may not work.)

When I connect HDMI from a Time Warner DVR to my Vizio thru a DVI/HDMI adapter, I get no sound. I can only get sound if I use Component input (RGB+ audio R&L). Is this a DVR issue or a Vizio issue?


Use the Time Warner remote and hit the settings button twice. Scroll down to "audio: digital out" and select HDMI. That solved it for me.

The only issue I have now is that I also have component sound outputs going from the cable box to a receiver. When I turn off the TV while the HDMI cable is hooked up to both the box and the tv the sound goes out to the receiver...

I have a problem with the HDMI hookup. The sound


I've come across issues in the past where low quality hdmi cables can cause issues like this. When they were upgraded, the problem was resolved. With having you switching the cables, I wanted to make sure that the audio and video output of the dvr was functioning correctly, which it seems to be. I don't think that you have a problem with either the TV or the DVR. There is a term known as the "HDMI handshake" between 2 components that are connected. Where the DVR isn't even aware that their is a problem with either intermittent audio or video to the TV. It's just that communication via the hdmi cable causes the TV to keep trying to interface with the DVR if it "senses" any inadequacies in data transfer from the DVR. I am not sure what quality hdmi cables you are utilizing, but a higher quality pair will hopefully suffice to resolve the issue. Just a suggestion.. Try finding cables online, such as ebay. You will get a much better deal on them. I hope this information is of some help, despite sordid rambling..lol. If you have any more questions, feel free to contact me. I would be more than happy to assist you in any way possible. Good luck!

HDMI Cable?


Hi CrysR,

Although you may not be able to locate a cable with one HDMI male end and one USB male end, it is possible you may find a solution with an adapter.

I recommend looking for an adapter that will accept USB input and output to either HDMI or DVI. If you only locate DVI, you can then add a DVI to HDMI adapter at the end.

Be aware with these extra pieces and signal transfers included, it may degrade the quality of your picture.

Thank you,
Jason,

Hdmi and audio


It may be the top of set box.. Most times the sound and picture are auto detected by the set when HDMI is used. Both sound and video are carried in a HDMI cable but not with a S video cable. Try another HDMI cable *** dont buy the expensive one the tv don't care if they cost $125 or $25.

Help with hook up


A lot of people buy digital TV's only to discover that they need to upgrade the rest of their stuff as well. You can hook up the dvr and vcr with composite or component cables of course, but that isn't digital.
