Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-52W4100 52 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

Pulsing/skipping picture on Sony Bravia 52'' LCD flat screen TV.

When I am playing either the Blu-Ray or the DVR -- so some type of playback -- my new 52'' Sony Bravia LCD screen pulses, or skips, as though a tiny segment of video (1/10 second, or 1/4 second) is missing. This happens every few seconds and is very distracting. Audio is consistent. What could cause this? I thought it was the DVR until it happened with the Blu-Ray (new), too. The picture occasionally compresses to just the left half of the screen, too, but changing channels or input and changing back corrects this (and it rarely happens). I am fearing a lemon.

Yes it sounds like a lemon. A firmware update is the next thing to try.

SOURCE: Periodic tv screen blackouts

The problem is your cable box. I know you said you replaced it, but I work on TV's everyday and, sorry to say this but cable box HDMI outputs have serious issues, like no or intermittent sound and video. I have seen customers exchange their cable boxes 5 and 6 times and still have the problem. Your best bet is to use the component outputs of your cable box, visually you will not see a picture difference between component and HDMI when using a cable box. Your other solution is to get satellite; I have NEVER seen an HDMI issue with a satellite box

SOURCE: Sony 52" Bravia LCD will drop picture and sound for 1-2 seconds

the only thing that i can think of is that the cables and connections are bad but if that is not the case it may be the internal components of the tv. my guess is that the tv was dropped or jumbled around while transported and what happened was internal components were broken or just mixed up so go to the retailer and get a refund or a new tv. hope this helps

Click on the display button (upper left corner) as a short term fix - it will turn it off immediately - not sure of how to permanently solve this though.

The home theater player does not recognize some blu rays - only as unknown discs


If it played them before it could be a fault on the disc player. If it hasn't played the disc before, they code be the wrong region code. Even blu ray discs have region codes. If it plays several blu ray discs, but doesn't play the odd one. Check the odd one for finger prints or dirt or marks on the disc. Clean the disc, if it has them and try it again.

Samsung bd-c6900 xaa dvd player freezes on 3d prometheus movie in same spot at scene 20


Report the error to Samsung support. There is an ongoing problem with the firmware. Make sure you have updated to the most recent firmware version 1025.0 that was released this month. There are still unresolved problems with the new firmware release though. Many movies will fail to load and other will load and play but will skip/freeze during playback. This is related to the anti-piracy features on the Blu-Ray that the player can not properly handle.

We dont have a remote but want it to play movies


I'm sorry to inform you that the Blu-ray player requires the remote to playback the blu-ray movies. You can playback normal DVD video disc which has auto play option. In order to go though the Menu items before start playing a Blu-ray DVD. Hence Remote is must..
Thanks for understanding..

Hdtv picture freeze


I also have a Brand new Sony Bravia 52" LCD with Comcast Cable (motorola box).When switching between HD Channels sometimes the left side of the screen shows a smushed version of the new channel, and the right side is a frozen picture of the previous channel. I correct this by switching to a non HD channel and back. Cable or TV problem I wonder?

Screen resolution


There is only one type of ''output'' which currently outputs 1080p and that is blu ray players.
Sky HD, free sat HD and even HDDVD's only output at 1080i.

Your TV will automatically output at its highest possible quality from the signal its receiving. Please re-clarify if you are using blu-ray, if not, go and buy a new Blu-ray player!
