Question about Sony KP-53HS10 TV

Screen goes black and resets during HD shows

I have a TiVo Series 3 HD DVR connected to the digital input composite terminals - Video Input 5 of teh Sony KP-53HS10. Previously I had a Scientific Atlanta HD set top cable box connected to the same Video 5 input terminal. My problem is that during HD broadcasts from either of the above sources the screen goes black whenever there is a sudden change to the video such as a fast action scene or dark to light such as a gun or lightning flash. It also occurs if there is a very light background at the top of the screen. The Sony TV aspect signal detection circuitry resets for some unknown reason and thus the black screen. When the picture reappears the TV displays the input it is using (video 5) and the type of signal it is receiving (e.g 1080i.) I believe this occurs because the composite input circuitry of Video input 5 automatically detects whether the signal is 480 (normal or letterbox), 720 or 1080i and then automatically adjusts the screen aspect size accordingly. Is there was a way to manually set the input to 1080i this going to black screen phenomenom would not occur? Is my diagnosis correct and is there a solution. I am at the point of purchasing a new HD TV since the problem is very annoying.

This is known issue. The A board need a modification. Parts cost $5 bucks but you need to be good at soldering. You can also get a fixed board for about $200 or a brand new board for about $400. If you search the inernet you sould be able to find the info about this problem at the Tivo community.

    It is set in two way, one by the show or media you are watching and two by the controls of your TV and your input. Let';s say you have cable, on the cable box menu you should have an option to select your format options. This would start at 480I and end at 1080. If you are getting H channels, you should be geting 1080I programming.

    television is capable of displaying 1080i and 480p DTV signals when connected to a DTV Tuner set-top-box (STB). In
    order to view DTV programming, the STB must be connected to the component video inputs (Y, PB, PR) of the television. A DTV signal must be available in your area. Select the output of the STB to either 1080i or 480p.
    This television also utilizes a progressive scan doubler, which de-interlaces the NTSC signal and progressively scans the image. This allows you to sit close to the TV and not see the thin black horizontal lines (venetian blind effect) associated
    with interlaced TV pictures.

    There are 2 sets of three video inputs, Y, PB, and PR. Separate component color inputs provide luminance and color separation.
    Use the L (left) and R (right) audio inputs

Have you already tried to power cycle all the devices? Unplug the power cable on all your devices for about 1 hour then plug it back in. Check if that fixes it.

Why is there sound but no picture?


According to the owner's manual page 2.7 (and this is an OLD [by HDTV standards] set), the TV can only handle input resolutions of 480p or 1080i on the composite inputs. Most HDTV programming today is 720p with some 1080i and 1080p on certain channels (like some Discovery shows about nature). It is possible that your set will not process the 720p signals being sent.

I've connected my new Sony Blue-Ray Disk Player to my RCA F25645 TV via the three (Red, White, Yellow) composite cables but the screen only says "unusable signal" and will not display the Blue...


The output from the blu-ray is probably component video, where the brightness, blue and red difference signals are the three outputs. Sounds like the TV only has composite video input so won't work. Check the manuals, if you can get a composite signal from the blu-ray then your TV will display it but not high definition. A HD LCD or plasma TV is needed to show the blu-ray films in high definition.

I have a 32" RCA 32V432T TV that only shows snow now. I've checked everything externally but still no picture. Any solutions?


There could be several things that can cause this: 1. There are no analog channels in your area. 2. Check the menu setup and verify that you select the proper input (antenna, cable, etc). 3. The TV tuner is defective Try using the composite input on the TV (there are normally 3 jacks per input). Yellow for video and red and black for audio. If you dont have the proper cable, pick one up in you local 99 cent store or an electronic store.
Connect the "output" of your device (VCR, cable box, Tivo, dvd player, etc) to the "input" on the TV. Then use your TV remote to select the proper input.
Hopefully this helps. Good luck.

I have a proscan tv model #PS27108, I do not know how to hook up the dvd player in regards to the cords and what channel to put it on? I would appreciate any help with this! Thanks in advance?


The ProScan will accept input on input 90/91/92 using the connectors on the backside. You can use S-video[the little round black connector] or the composite video [yellow connector] for the video in and use the red / white pair for audio in.
90 selects S-video and audio 1 in
91 selects composite and audio 1 in
92 selects composite in 2 and audio 2 in
Connect these cords to the S-video or composite yellow output, and the Red-right White- left audio outputs on the DVD.
If you don't want to do this, get a RF modulator ~$15, and connect the yellow/red/white from the DVD output to the inputs on the modulator, and then connect the RF [cable] output of the modulator to the antenna input on the ProScan, and tune channel 3 or 4.

Screen goes black and resets during HD shows


Are you on Cable service or Direct TV. Have you tried the analog signal? HDTV ready monitor can use a standard analog signal. Most HDTV ready tv's have analog tuners built into them, meaning you can use standard cable/over the air signals on them. They will not be high definition. You can use the analog hookup by hooking it to the coaxial antenna hookup, or, if you have a cable box, it may have a set of audio/video outs (the red-white-yellow rca plugs on the back) that you can use to hook up for a slightly sharper picture.

Does the problem still persist without the Tivo connected? Try to isolate each devices that are plugged in. Try to watch a normal dvd first without the Tvio connected and see if the same problem occurs.

I just posted this to another Sony owner:

Another point; HD Ready does not mean that it is HD compatible without the addition of an optional part.
The title only implies that it can be adapted to HD reception.
If you did not purchase it with the set, check your user guide to see what you need to make it whole.
You may have to seek this add-on on eBay since it is not guaranteed that Sony will still offer it.
