Sony Blu Ray Black and white only and dim screen on
SONY BRAVIA TV
I have seen a post with this situation. We have a SONY bravia KDL35400
and blu ray disc bdp-s280. Both purchased late 2009. At first the blu ray worked ok...But, we really did not see anything fantastic with the blu ray disc
movies. Then, we rented dvds and slowly they began to stop and/or skip and we thought they were scratched or something. Now when we attempt to use the blu ray player, the screen is very dim and only black and white. Sony assistance kept saying we needed a new blu ray. We tried updating the cord and using different hdmi jks,ect.
SO, We did go buy a new Blu Ray player and new High powered
"Perfect for Blu Ray" HDMI cord....$27!
The truth is that something burns out in the TV and it can not communicate with the dvd player. So, now we just
cant watch movies on it. Very disappointing. We really had not watched many movies before this started happening. It took 4 calls and 3 days to get someone from Sony to admit it was the TV. They would send a referb at full new tv price to replace...HA HA HA RIGHT! So I think we will stop buying SONY...TOO BAD I HAVE TWO SONY DIGITAL CAMERAS AND 2 SONY VIDEO CAMCORDERS. AND After I return the new blu ray...one Sony Blu ray disc. and One Sony portable dvd player and one Sony portable disc, And a sony printer for my camera. oh, well....on to the next new device with a hopefully more friendly better built better geek supplied company.
