Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-40V2500 40 in. LCD HDTV

Stating 480i on display rather than just saying on cable

I have a sony bravia kdl40v2500. Normaly when I watch cable tv the display is just "cable" in upper left hand corner of the screen. Now for some reason the display states cable then 480i below that. Obviously the picture is far worse quality than what I should have. I have unplugged the cable box 3 times to see if it was a cable broadcasting problem, but each time it comes back with same display.

I just had this problem as my sister just gave me her old bravia because she got a new one. I couldn't figure it out and obviously this page didn't help... but i have solved the problem!!! You have to go to the HD channels and it will switch over... I was just on the low channels when i was trying to solve the problem, but I went up into the 800's where they are all HD and it switched. Hope this helps :-)

Hi , on my Sony Bravia it states "Calble " with an icon in Black in the top left of the TV screen when watching SKY. Is there anyway of getting rid of this text or icon? Thanks Nick


Hi,
Press Info/ Display button on tv remote once, on-screen display will disappear.
Only Sony tv remote will work for that, no other universal remote will close on-screen display.
Thanks.

We lose audio on our Sony BRAVIA KDL-52W4100


This problem appears to be an issue with numerous Sony Bravia owners of the same model. Although still seeking a soulution, it would appear that our cable provider (Verizon) has replaced all of their components and the Geek Squad from Best Buy where we purchased the unit, points the finger at Verizon. None of our other Fios-equipped TV's exhibit this problem so I am glad we bought the service plan with the TV and will continue to seek a remedy.

If you are hooked up with a DVI cable you need to either use hdmi, component cables or turn off the non hd override...

Resolution


If you're talking about off-the-air (outside antenna) reception, the set should take care of the switching automatically. If you receive the video from a set top box, DVD player/recorder, SAT receiver or CATV receiver, you may have to set the output resolution of the device. Bear in mind, composite video (yellow jack) is 480i only, S-video is rated 480i or 480p, component video (RGB) can do all resolutions and HDMI can't do 480i but does all the other resolutions. If you are plugging your external device into either composite or S-video, you will only get 480 max.

Getting my Sony TV to operate in 1080i.


Asumming you have set the Xbox at 1080i in the video settings and you have used all the four component lead ends, (apart from the yellow video end, as you won't need this) it should work.
