nonworking component for Sony KV27FS120?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi I searched and couldn't locate an answer regarding the component on KV-27FS120. Sources include D*TV, and separate Magnavox DVR. Apparently there is only scrambled horizontal lines. I tried three different component cables to rule out the cable. All three showed the same horizontal distortion on Video 4, the only one available for component.
The yellow composite cable works on video 2. is there a specific fix? Thanks in advance.

make sure the source components (DVR) video output is set to 480i.

Oh no...ok. There are no 480i sources nor converters at this point. Thanks for confirming my fear.

What's to fear?
Check the video settings of the D* tuner and the Magnavox DVR. There should be an option to set the video output to 480i.

Indeed, I wondered if he checked for that option as it seems those devices should have that capability. Could be in the menu, a button on the remote, or in the case of my odd DTV tuner only on the front panel (I've heard some older devices have switches on the back). Check for names like Format and Video Format. Also make sure the device isn't set for Progressive if it's 480i/480p-only if that TV can only accept 480i.

According to the TV's manual:
Quote:
Y, PB, PR Inputs — A component video input connection for a superior picture quality (480i only).

Good for me to know too, thanks. I got the little one (KV-20FS120) for free but its manual left off the (480i only) part off that sentence. I looked deeper within the manual to where it describes a DVD connection via component and sure enough it states 480i only. I've only got a converter box hooked up to it at the present but unfortunately this size didn't come with an s-video input. Cool little TV with the 16:9 Enhanced feature though.
