Try resetting the TV to the original factory settings. After resetting the TV to the original factory settings, you can get the initial setup screen to select Antenna. Make sure that the cable from the Antenna is connected to the TV.

Follow the steps given below to reset the TV to the original factory settings:

(i) Turn ON the TV.
(ii) While holding down the Up arrow button on the Remote control supplied with the TV, press the Power button on the TV set. The TV will turn itself off then back ON again.
(iii)Next, release the Up arrow.

MY tv that goes straight to the screensaver mode like it would on pc. sony bravia kdl32nl140 is the tv.


J, it sounds like it may not be getting any input from cable or satellite, try switching cable and inputs around, try VCR or DVD player. You may need a firmware or software update.
Some forums say to unplug and wait 10 min. then it resets.
Check links below.

After initial set up and download, TV is displaying a hand on power plug picture with a red circle and line through it and a refresh symbol in light blue next to it, what does this mean?


Hi! and Welcome to Fixya!

What you have on the tv screen is a warning sign that your tv is currently updating its software. A hand holding a power plug with red circle on it says do not unplug the tv while its running the software update. The usual time for the update to finish is 60 minutes. It may took more than 60 minutes if you have a slow internet speed. This is normal especially if you are running the software update for the first time during the initial setup. The next time tv performs software updates it will take shorter time.

However, if the updates took more than two hours, the tv may be frozen. You can unplug and plug it back in and start from the initial setup again.

On some rare occasion, the tv may not proceed with the initial setup. You may have to turn off your modem to complete the initial setup. when initial setup is done, connect your tv to network and run software update again.

Let me know if you still have other questions.

Your TV is in store demo mode.

To fix this, access the TV's menu and find the option to run initial setup. At the beginning of initial set-up, you'll be asked whether or not the TV should be put into Home or Retail mode. Choose Home.

TV will not remember settings Sony Bravia KDL 40S4011


Probably you are in "shop" mode of TV. Try to reset your TV and go through initial setup. Most important - choose "home" instead of "shop" when asked during initial setup. Resetting - keep up arrow pressed and switch of TV. Keep the button pressed when TV automatically switch back on. This will reset TV to factory defaults.

Vizio 320m. I set it up wrong. Instead of choosing


You should be able to use the input/source function on your remote to select which signal sources you want the TV to display, find out which input on the TV you have the cable box hook it up to then just select that input. Do you still have the user manual?
