Sony BRAVIA volume problem

Although sound selection for my Sony BRAVIA is set to "TV speakers", when I try to adjust the volume using either with the remote control or the TV panel controls, there is no change and a pop-up text box appears on lower left corner of the screen indicating sound is set to Audio System.

I'm also unable to change channels using the remote or channel controls on TV panel.

Everything was working fine with the TV an hour ago.

I had this same issue, and solved it by putting the TV in "Theater Mode', which can be acheived by hitting the "Theater" button on the remote.

    Note that you actually have to hold down the "Theater" button for a about second on my 52S5100. Otherwise, it says it is switching it off, but actually doesn't. Nice.

I can't get sound through my headphones on my Bravia kdl-52xbr5 tv. First time I have tried to hook up the headphones which are sharper image wireless


I take it the headphones are charged up and known to be in good working order? Are you using the 3.5mm headphone jack on the side of the TV or the white and red RCA jacks labeled AUDIO OUT (VAR/FIX)? If using the headphone jack the TV should shut off the internal speakers and output to the headphones. If using the mentioned RCA jacks you need to go into the audio options settings and set to Audio System. Also under audio settings, Audio Out, you can pick Fixed or Variable. If you opt for Fixed you will use the headphones to adjust the volume. If you opt for Variable you can control the headphone volume and muting using your TV remote control. Just make sure you have the headphone volume turned up adequately.

I have a new Sony Bravia LCD TV 40" EX500. That I need to hook external speakers to thru an ONKYO amp. The amp has optical and coaxial Audio in but NOT HDMI. I have connected the optical Audio...


Well, one of the solutions would be a universal remote control.
The way amplifiers usually work is such that the volume needs to be adjusted on the amplifier and not the source (TV in your case).
If you can give me more information on the model of your amp I might be able to prove die you with another solution.

Have a sony KDL - 46v5100 volume problem


Tap the "Theater" button on the remote. You should see either "Theater Mode: On" or "Theater Mode: Off". If it is off, tap it again to turn it on and wait for it to go away. Now tap again (should say "Theater Mode: On") and then press and hold it for about a second. This should actually turn it off, as opposed to just pretending to. Works on my larger Sony KDL.

The tv is about 3 months old and sound does not work. How can I get this fix?


Check speakers are connected (if external speakers are required),
Check audio is not 'muted' from remote control,
Check volume is adjusted for normal listening level.
If none of above, it will still be under manufacturer warranty.
Return it to supplier for repair.

How do i hook external speakers to sony bravia television


The proper way to do this would be to use the audio output from the TV, either analogue left and right or the optical port, and send it into an dedicated amplifier or AV receiver. You can then use the amplifier or receiver to power the external speakers. If you are using a dedicated amplifier with no volume control you will want to change the audio output setting on the TV to "variable out" as oppose to its current "fixed out"settings. You can find this in the TV menu, usually under the audio settings. This will allow you to use the current TV remote to adjust the audio volume coming out of the external speakers.
