I am only running a Blu-ray, VCR (S-Video) and an audio / video receiver (output only) through this TV.
THANK YOU for the info.
I have a Sony Bravia KDL-46V5100 . I recently did a firmware update via thumb drive that was sent via mail from the Sony Electronics dept. in Laredo, TX. My TV now has no picture!. Audio when Direct TV receiver box is on but NO picture. Tried hard reset. No avail. Sony now tells me that I will need it serviced on MY nickel!! It was working fine (except for lose of functioning HDMI ports) before the update. It was suppose to fix the problem of the HDMI ports. Any help?
EDIT: Now my TV is stuck in the same mode as SaratogaSam's in post #4643 (except I don't get a logo flashing) in this thread. I hate Sony. If they just made decent firmware, none of this would have happened.
I'm new here but had a question about firmware updates for a KDL-40v5100. It's been updating form a usb for the past hour and a half. I'm actually reverting from the most recent firmware to an older version because my HDMI ports go out at random times (after the update).
Right now the tv is blank but the yellow timer light and red standby light are on and steady. My question is, when the update is done, do these lights go off or what? I don't want to cut the update off before it's complete and brick the tv. Any information or advice is greatly appreciated.
Ok so I have an update. I talked to Sony after my tv got stuck in System Management Mode (SMM) and they sent me a USB with the most up to date firmware. This got my tv out of SMM and updated the firmware. After doing so, I had to unplug the tv to get the HDMI ports to work as none of the HDMI ports would get a signal or it would have an audio only signal. HOWEVER, the HDMI signal still drops sometimes, but I guess this is just something I'm (we) will have to live with until a new firmware update fixes it, if new firmware ever becomes available
