The HDMI port does not support computer connections. You can only connect a PC to the VGA port. (The computer signal from the video card isn't the same format as the output of a Blu-ray player.) The best choice might be a HDMI to VGA cable if your computer doesn't have a VGA port. (If it does have a VGA port, enable it if needed and use a VGA cable.) There will be signal loss on the HDMI to VGA cable (digital to analog conversion). If you were planning to watch DVDs played on the laptop, you might get as good a picture with the laptop's own screen.

I wish I could be of more help.

(some TVs have an HDMI/DVI jack and those can take the computer HDMI output. Your TV isn't one of them. If you want more information, check the manual http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-documents.pl?mdl=KDL32S2000.)

The Bravia needs the video input to be changed to PC when you connect a computer to the Bravia.
You still need to press FN + F5 to divert the laptop video data to the video port on the laptop for the TV.

When I hook my ps3 up to my Sony Bravia tv it comes up invalid format. Any suggestions? But doesn't do that when I hook it up to other sony


Disconnect any SCART leads.

  1. Connect your HDMI lead to your TV HDMI 1 port and PS3.
  2. Now turn OFF your TV, then turn OFF your PS3
  3. Now wait 15 seconds.
  4. Now turn on your TV and follow this carefully......
  5. Now press and hold the "ON" button on your PS3 until it cycles at least once.  
  6. Wait 2 seconds and it should handshake properly and make the connection.
I had the same issue, was a pain until I saw the solution on another site.

I have an LCD Sony Bravia KLV-46V400A, and a Dell Laptop both TV and PC have HMDI connection, i pluged them both using HDMI cable, however i am unable to view anything on my TV screen and nothing on my pc.


make sure that your pc is shutdown(off) when you plug the hdmi cable in your tv. First, plug hdmi cable into tv and turn on tv. Next, power up pc and it should see your tv. There should be an option on the pc to set the output a projector.

How do I connect my laptop to a Sony Bravia model KDL-40S4100?


Two options are available to you-

1. Through VGA Cable(Same cable which goes from CPU to PC Monitor)- For Video.
Take to PC Mode from MENU -> EXTERNAL I/P -> PC.

2. Through HDMI Cable.
Take to HDMI Mode from MENU -> EXTERNAL I/P -> HDMI.


If Still No Video
CASE1- 'NO Signal' Message Comes, then toggle the laptop screen with Function Key (depending upon laptop company).
CASE-2- 'Un-Supported Signal' Message comes then adjust the resolution to 1024*768 or 800*600 or as mentioned in Manual.

Please intimate me if any other problem comes after that.

"Invalid Format" message


Hello,

This should help you. I think Chris Duckworth said it best. "sounds to me like your refresh rates or resolution may be set too high on the XP machine."

Go to this website to get the rest about setting up your tv as a monitor. Type invalid in the word search to get to the relevant section.

I'm getting an invalid format on my hdmi inputs when i hook up my ps3. It's wierd because it works on my viszo, but not on my new westinghouse or my samsung.


If you accidentally set your PS 3 for 1080p resolution, when the TV can only support 720p, you get a black screen. The Westinghouse TV I used displayed a message that said "invalid format." To reset the PS 3 to the standard AV format, you shut the PS 3 off. Then you hold the PS 3’s power button down for about 10 seconds. It will reset to standard video

I have looked up the infomation on your TV I noticed that your TV has two HDMI input plugs. Since your SONY BRAVIA is hooked up to one port, you need to buy another HDMI cable for your PS3. On your tv remote you should have an option to switch from video 1 to video 2 so then you can switch from the SONY BRAVIA to the PS3 the problem is you will only hear your PS3 Sound from you TV. If you want to hear your PS3 sound from your SONY BRAVIA you need to buy an optical cable (also called TOSLINK) to connect from your PS3 to the SONY BRAVIA.

Hope that helps!
