I can get a picture through the DVD recorder and it records shows ok. any idea what is wrong? not sure if something on the Sony DVD has been pressed accidentally?

Generally in these cases that means it's a faulty cable or loose connection.

On LCD's if the screen dies or anything internally for that matter, the screen would stay black. Grey means a signal is coming through, but it's being able to receive it.
Solution:

Check your cables for any loose connections or try alternate cables going to your tv set.

Hope that helps. If you need anymore help let me know :)

Blue screen need to know how to scan channels to get input to come back up


Will need to know what tv you have, but you are right it is probably your input button. if you pushed it on your remote then there should be an input button on remote. otherwise you will have to go into the tv menu and setup it up there.
if you respond with model and make of tv, might get more info.

NO Picture or Sound


sounds like someone rolled over on the remote. if you have cable or a dish, the tv channel must be left on a specific station at all times. no matter what channel is on the cable, the television itself must be on the correct channel number in order to receive he signal from the cable company. try hitting the last channel recall button on the tv, not the cable. otherwise try channel 3 or 4 or sometimes 60 on the tv. good luck

Black box appears in TV screen


The problem with the black box happened to me. I had pushed the subtitle button on my remote by mistake. Interestingly enough, as soon as I pushed the SUBTITLE key again, on the remote, the black boxes disappeared.

It also says CC which means closed captioned-- So the bottom on my remote is Subtitle, and then on the subtitle button is cc...

I hope this helps

Big black box in the middle of the screen


The black box is there because your closed captioning is on and set to text mode. Some channels send the signal even when there is no actual text to display. You can get rid of it by either turning off closed captioning or changing it to CC1 or CC2 mode instead of text. If you can't find those settings, then restore factory settings as directed in your user manual.

No pic but sound :/


You are having a high voltage problem. Quite possibly in the horizontal deflection. I would check the horizontal output and regulator transistors.

TV or Satellite Box Problem?


Do you have a VCR or DVD recorder? If yes, set it to record what you are watching. After a "blackout" rewind the tape and review it. If there is a blackout on the tape, the problem is the sallite box, if not, it is the TV! QED
