    Everything appears to be connected correctly (with RGB). Although the Monster cables look good, I am suspecting a problem with them. Remote works, but no image of any kind appears on TV.

Hook up the player with RGB (Red-Green-Blue or component) cables and try the picture. If everything works OK, then go to the menu and turn on the HDMI output and set the resolution (if needed).
Not every HDMI unit works with every HDMI TV. You may also have a bad HDMI cable. On a DVD recorder, you may have your HDMI cable connected to HDMI IN. You must use HDMI out.

Testimonial: "Great idea! I will try it. I did turn on progressive, but I think trying the regular video 1st to get menu is brilliant. Thanks!"

    Some DVD s do not put out any signal on RGB until you switch to Progressive. If your remote has a progressive button, try it.
    You will have to hook up with regular video first to get the menu if that does not work. Use the menu in regular video, turn on progressive and then switch to RGB. Its a pain, but it may work. Depends on the DVD player.

Sony Bravia TV


If you get a blue screen at turn on and a short time later it shuts off--power supply is ok--set is shutting down as no signal detected to protect the screen.

If using a box first unplug it and wait and plug back--let box try to reboot itself.

Also as a test hook a DVD etc to a rear set of audio/video inputs and go to that input quickly when the set comes on (have DVD connected and on---see if set works that way.

No signal either a problem with the set or the signal source (box?).

Make sure none of the Digital or Component Input Assignments are programmed, if you're not using them. Set them to "----". This may help. Some of the Component input assignments may over-ride your other input assignments (perhaps even the HDMI input assignments).

Set the TV to look for a signal on the same input your are hooking your dvd player to. Example, if your dvd is hooked to video 1, set the TV to show video 1 on the screen.

DVD is wired to the VCR and does not work


The Sony Bravia should have a number of component inputs, so you should be able to hook up the DVD directly to the TV. The only reason for hooking it up through the VCR would be to record a DVD on VHS... but that's for the birds--VHS is old technology.

Each component input on the back of the TV has a number. You then select to view the component you want by pressing the remote control button to change the display (it should show with one you're on... e.g., Video 1, Video 2, Video 3, etc.).

Stuck in progressive scan mode.


Based on your description, it seems that you set the DVD to progressive scan output, but have it hooked up to a TV (CRT) that cannot accept this signal. Because the TV can't accept the signal, you can't view the DVD menu to change the setting back to interlaced.

On the back panel you have "Component Video Out" for output via component cables, but there is also a yellow RCA connection labeled "Video Out". This is a "composite video" connection which does not support progressive scan. Try disconnecting the component cables and connect the composite video to a TV. The DVD will likely (hopefully) send a compatible signal (480i) through this connection, which will give you access to the menu.
