Question about Sony BRAVIA XBR KDL-V26XBR1 26 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

I can't get rid of the information bar across the top of my TV

I have just bought and taken delivery of a 32" Sony Bravia but after setting up the channels I have an "information bar" across both the analogue and AV2 channels. I can't get rid of it and have read the instruction booklet cover to cover.
Help please?!

    My problem is similar, however, the fix offered by the responder doesn't work. I have a KDL 32V4000 Bravia and when viewing any external inputs the top information bar won't go away. I push on the "i" button, and can cycle through the various modes including the 'no info on screen' mode. However, after a few seconds, the top bar will return. The best I can do (from memory) is have the time permanently on - this prevents the info bar returning, but is none the less unacceptabel.

    Hope someone can help before I ring the seller....

It doesn't sound like it would be very stable. Why don't you just call Sony and ask for a replacement part? They will usually quick ship you a part if it was not included at the time of purchase.
