I have a new WD Mini that will not work with my five year old Sony WEGA TV. I plugged the component RCA jacks in to my fSony WEGA TV, and the USB jack in my WD USB Passbook
The WD start up screen appeared in blurry black, and white, and I selected component. Then the screen displayed everything in black, and white but in a double side by side view. I could see the menu but not read it correctly. I turned everything off, checked to make sure the connections were correct. I tested the component jacks on the TV by plugging my DVD player into them and everything on the SONY TV worked fine.
When I was confident that everything was connected correctly, I tried the WD Mini again, but now saw nothing except black and white bars traveling across the screen. I powered down and pressed the reset button then powered on again. Nothing helped.
I tired unplugging my DVD from it’s working component connection, and putting the WD Mini in that component jack, but it changed nothing. Then I removed the component connection, reset the Mini, and tried plugging in the composite jack Once again, I saw the black and white, unreadable double display.
I changed the USB drive from my Passbook to a 8GB Corsair flash drive with nothing but the demo folders, and files on it but it didn’t help.
All other devices plugged into my Sony WEGA work fine, DVD player, VCR, Digital cable box, all work fine plugged into any of the jacks.
Finally I removed the WD Mini from my Sony TV and hooked it up to the component jacks of my digital computer monitor = a Dell 2007wfp with a Corsair flash drive and the WD Mini worked normally… but not on my TV
Why doesn’t the WD Mini work with my Sony TV. Is it incompatible with analog SONY WEGA TVs? I thought it was designed to work with older analog TVs.
