Hello...been a while since I posted here...

Years ago in 2004 I had Gregg Loewen come to my home and calibrate my set.

It is a Sony HS510.

He did a wonderful job and this set is running perfectly.

However, he shut off my DVI and front S-Video jacks/ports.

How can I turn those back on? I do not have HDMI with this older set and I need to free up some inputs since both of my Component Cable jacks are in use.

I would like to use my DVI so my Component Cable jack is free for the Nintendo Wii.

Also I like having the S-video jack usable for my laptop.

I also would like to use a HDMI to DVI converter cable for my new BluRay DVD player.

A detailed way of accessing on HOW to activate these jacks/posts again would be very much appreciated.

Sorry if there is another thread about this...I could not find one.

If this is a Service Menu problem can someone send me the instructions on how to access that and how to turn these ports on? (PM)

I tried emailing Gregg Loewen with no reply...

Thank you in advance...

Hi there

Presumeably by "off" these inputs are just set to "skip" on the video selector.

On the remote control, try pressing Menu.

Choose Setup, then Video Labels

Then use Up/Down to get to the input,

use Right to begin edit mode,

use Up/Down to select new lablel or SKIP

use Left to set.

Blue-z....You ROCK!

Thank YOU!

Man, do I feel like an IDIOT.

When I had that calibrated he did it so fast that I thought he was in the service menu.

Now my 7th in-put is back to HD (DVI Port) and now I can try a HDMI to DVI convert cable to free up one of my Component Ports!

(I have no clue if I will lose quality by doing this or not...)

Plus I have S-Video in the front jack again.

S-Video is still fine for quick showing of videos from my Laptop or Camcorder...

I know many people feel that my HS510 34" TV is obsolete but, the PQ is still very good.

I expect many more years out of this set since it is a CRT.

That would be correct.

I have gotten no email from you Workindood.
