Re: sony bravia 46"
It sounds like either the remote is bad, or this TV may have a "showroom" setting to keep people from messing with th TV while it is on display. I would download the manual to see if it mentions a showroom setting, if not, try a new remote

You would need to do a factory reset
From the Sony Forums:
factory reset to your Television.
Turn on the TV.
Wait approximately 40 seconds for the TV to completely start up.
On the TV remote control, press and hold the UP ARROW button.
While holding the UP ARROW button, with your other hand reach around the side of the TV and press and release the POWER button on the TV set.( not the power button on the remote) it should be the top button along the side panel.
Press the Power button on the remote control once, when the set it powered up. It will power OFF. If you want to power down totally, just switch off the main power at its panel. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
Follow this procedure to troubleshoot if the TV does not respond to the supplied remote control.
Remove the batteries from the remote control.
Press each button on the remote control twice.
Make sure none of the remote control buttons are jammed.
Install fresh batteries into the remote control. IMPORTANT: Make sure the batteries are inserted in the (+ and -) direction shown inside the battery compartment.
Make sure nothing is blocking the Infrared (IR) sensor on the TV.
IMPORTANT: Some locations can interfere with the IR signal from the remote control. Glass enclosures, as well as fluorescent or halogen lights, may prevent the IR signal from reaching the TV.
Point the remote control at the IR sensor of the TV.
Press the POWER button and other buttons to test TV operation.
IMPORTANT: Do not hold down the POWER button too long. Doing so may prevent the remote control from operating the TV.
If some of the remote control buttons operate the TV but others do not, the remote control may need replaced.
If all of the remote control buttons work, no further troubleshooting is required. Otherwise, continue troubleshooting below.
Try using the remote control at varying distances from the TV. IMPORTANT: Using the remote control too close or too far away may prevent the IR signal from reaching the TV.
Turn the Light Sensor setting to OFF.
On the TV itself, press the HOME button on the TV.
Using the up arrow or down arrow select Preferences.
Press the INPUT button.
Press the up arrow or down arrow to select ECO.
Press the INPUT button.
Use the up arrow or down arrow to select Light Sensor.
The troubleshooting steps above should resolve the issue. If you completed all the steps and the issue is not resolved, service may be required or the remote control may need replaced. Contact the Customer Experience Center at (239) 768-7547 to speak with a service representative for further assistance.
I have a sony bravia kdl 40v 5100 for less than two years and i did not purchased an extended warranty and now my tv is down.
I have no picture, no sound just a black screen when i turn the power on, the power (green) light is lite up and the tv turns off by itself for like less than 30 seconds. I have tried to press as many buttons on the remote control and on the side of the TV to get any message but nothing seem to happen. Any suggestions and solutions? Thanks
