Hello, and sorry you're having problems. We are now connected on this website- which saves you money over having a Tech come to your home, and in many cases we can fix the problem you're having.

Many of the older Sony sets require the HDMI Inputs to be "Named" or "Labeled" before you can use them. Can you please get me the model number off of the back of the TV so that I can find you instructions on how to do this?
