We have SKY and i can hear the programmes, just that the picture has gone. It lights up but the whole screen just goes shades of red, purple, green and blue. Ovccassionally it goes black and white cheque!

Ive checked all the wiring in the back but everything seems firmly in

The sky box is the box you use to watch TV
The flat panel is just the monitor to receive the picture from the sky box you cannot tune the TV to receive the sky EPG signal
Use the HDMI input in the TV menu that the sky box is attached to
Here In my place in India, you can attach only one tv to the sky set top box.That too with AV cables. The program or channel changing is done by box only. The tv works as a monitor and has no role in program selection. You can attach a second tv to the box not through antenna cable but through AV cables only. That too if the box is having second set of output sockets. In that case both the TVs will receive the same programmes. To watch different programmes on the second tv you will have to go for an additional box.
turn on at the rear (switch next to power lead socket) and the blue standby light on the front should illuminate. on the right hand side of the tv is a series of buttons, press the top one to start the tv, the others are channel up & down ,volume up & down. If you have a Sky remote you can programme that to run your TV
with the tv on and sky off, press red button & select together, remote blinks twice.press tv then standby repeat this action until the tv turns off. when it goes off press select. press standby again and tv should start. your sky remote should then work perfect. as a tip with tv on and sky off press tv then back up this should then go to the freeview setup and you can watch those as well for free
Hold down select and the red button together for about two seconds, until the red light on the Sky remote control blinks twice.
Press tv on your Sky remote control again.
Key in the code 0157. The light on the Sky
remote control blinks twice. If the light blinks once only, recheck the
code you entered and start again at Step 1.
Press the standby button on your Sky remote control. If your TV switches off, press select. The light on the Sky remote control blinks twice (code stored). If your TV does not switch off, press tv, then press the standby button. Repeat this (press tv, then standby) until your TV turns off, then press select (stores code).
If first we could ensure some connections are tight before moving into TV settings.
You have told me that you are using sky over an analogue connection. Make sure that these are plugged in at both ends (sky box and TV) and that your sky box is on.
Now using your TV remote, enter the TV settings (there should be a button for this specifically on your remote), and opt for Tuning and manual tuning. The layout for most TV settings are similar.
By manual tuning, you are able to select the number on which you want to view a channel (in the analogue case, Sky as a whole is considered one channel on your television)
Now you should be able to use the left and right keys on your remote to tune up and down a range of frequencies, one of which Sky will be on. Once you have found this frequency, you should store it to the channel you have selected.
To my mind, the only thing that would then cause this to reset is if you turn off your TV from the mains each time you finish using it.
There is nothing wrong with you Sony Bravia TV and it suppport all HD and SD formats.
Are you viewing the HD version of the channel when it is showing a standard defination show. e.g SKY1 HD instead of SKY1.
This means that regular standard defination shows are in a 4:3 ratio and does not fill the whole screen. In order to view these type of shows you will need to tune to regular channel instead of the HD version.
You can check if a show is brocast in HD by going into the tv guide and checking for the HD symbol in the programme symposis.
