I am getting audio but I am not seeing anything, I was checking the settings on the dvd a blue screen appeared with 3 columns with writing in it that seems to be codes and it seem to have lock me out, how shall I handle this problem, is there a button I have to press on the the remote to reset or do I have to take it to a Technician?
You might want to reset to factory defaults, but there is an error in the manual. In order to reset to factory defaults, turn on (with no disc inside), DO NOT OPEN THE DISC TRAY, just press the stop button on the player for 5 seconds (some solutions say 20 seconds).

It appears you are trying to connect via "component" video - green (Y), red (Pr), and blue (Pb). Make sure the settings on the Sony is set to component - NOT composite. You can try composite - the yellow to yellow jack (from the DVD to receiver or TV), to see if that works, but make sure your settings are for composite. The audio are red and white, right and left respectively and are used for both schemes above.
How is it connected? If you are using the RGB (Component cables) then you could have hooked up the Blue to green and vice versa On some sets the Blue and Green are so close that its easy to cross them form either the DVD player or the monitor.
As for the audio, if you can see the home screen, use the remote to navigate back ( left arrow all the way, then down to the audio set up screen) check to see what the audio default is set to. If you are using the standard analog stereo ( white and red) select this option and return to playback mode. Hope it helps.
Hi beelzyboob.. try checking these.. since you are using the RCA (composite cables) and I assume you have them on the "DVD in" at the back, go to setup, go to input assignment and go to hdmi input. here, make sure dvd is set to" ----". Next, hit return and go down to component input and also check if dvd is set to "-----". With these settings, you should get video. This is because you are not using either an HDMI or component cable. hope this helps.. ^_^
I strongly doubt it's the lamp assy since you can actually see the blue screen. If the lamp failed, you would not see anything on the screen. This blue screen indicates to me that either the tuner is no longer decoding the signal, in improper input has been selected (ie: input 1 is selected while actual signal is on composite 1), or something of that nature. If you are getting audio then the input is selected properly but the video decoder has failed.
If your cable signal is going through a VCR or DVD, disconnect it from there and go directly to the TV (ie: bypass the VCR/DVD). If your picture comes back, there's some kind of problem with your VCR/DVD player.
If you have multiple inputs, try connecting an input signal to another input (ie: video 1, or aux from a dvd player) and see if you get a picture there. If you do get a picture, the whatever input you're currently using has malfunctioned.
