    Having recently purchased a Sony KD32DX51 i have noticed that it now takes a very long time for the picture to appear on the screen when you switch it on.Originally when the set was new the sound came on first then about a second later the picture appeared.Now it can take up to 7 seconds which seems an unusually long time.
    Does anyone else have the same problem on their Sony TV ?
    Thanks

    Doesn't sound unusual to me. Sony's are renowned for this - always have been.

    I really wouldn't worry.

    same thing happening with the 28" version. Very annoying!!

    I've also noticed some very poor sounds with 'strong' base.

    I don't know if your set has similar software to the DX150, but on that set you can alter the subwoofer volume in the service menus.

    To coin a phrase - all good things come to those who wait!

    I have that exact telly and yes it odes take several seconds to power up! Just wait until one time you go to put it on and nothing happens! That is its best feature for me!

    Vizille,

    Yes, it's normal.

    The idea is to give time for the various circuits to stabilise, so that the picture is correct when it appears.

    If you were as ancient as TG, you'd remember when anything under a minute was considered fast! :eek:

    In those days you'd have to switch on early, in order to catch a particular programme. :rotfl:
