Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-40V2500 40 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

Power button does nothing

I want to reset my TV because of seeing thin sparkled lines of red and green showing up on the white backgrounds in the picture. These lines appear both on cable and with my DVD player. Sony support suggests to reset the tv. I press the power button on top of the tv, and nothing happens. Any solutions or suggestions?

Try a hard reset by pulling the mainsplug out of the television..wait for a minute or so and plug it back in..The software in your tv is hanging so a hard reboot should fix this..
