Re: PIP on an older SONY with DISH

If you are using the satellite remote then you need to contact the dish company and ask them how to program the remote. Good Luck

My RCA Truflat T.V won't turn on and the FPA lock is turned on, I have the original remote. what should i do?

TV won't turn on • Press the TV button. Make sure the TV is plugged in.• Check the wall receptacle (or extension cord) to make sure it is "live" by plugging in something else.• Something might be wrong with your remote control. Press the POWER button on the front of the TV. If the TV turns on, check the remote control solutions on page 26.• The front panel controls may be locked (disabled). Use the remote control to unlock the front panel controls by selecting the Lock Fr. Panel in the PARENTAL CONTROL menu and press OK (box won't have check mark).Buttons don't work
• If you're using the remote control, press the TV button first to make sure the remote is in TV mode.• The front panel controls may be locked (disabled). Use the remote control to unlock the front panel controls by selecting the Lock Fr. Panel in the PARENTAL CONTROL menu and press OK (box won't have check mark).• Unplug the TV for two minutes and then plug it back in. Turn the TV on and try again.TV turns off unexpectedly • Sleep timer might have been activated. Go to page 24 for instructions.• KidPass might have been activated. Go to page 21 for instructions.• Wake-Up timer turned on the TV and no remote or front panel buttons were pressed for two hours.• Electronic protection circuit may have been activated because of a power surge. Wait 30 seconds and then
turn on again. If this happens frequently, the voltage in your house may be abnormally high or low.
• Unplug TV. Wait five minutes. Plug it in again.

I have a sony (model KP61V75) a split screen came on (two pictures) and I cannot figure out how to get it back to one screen. Im going crazy!

Some television remote controls have a PIP OFF button, while others only have a PIP button that needs to be pressed repeatedly until the PIP/Twin-View window disappears.


  • Some Sony rear projection televisions have a FLASH FOCUS button that will turn off the PIP/Twin-View feature.

  • Some Sony universal remote controls, if programmed to operate a Sony TV, can disable the PIP/Twin-View feature by pressing the REC or ENT button.

  • If the original TV remote control is not available or is not functioning properly, auto programming the television tuner orperforming a power reset may deactivate the PIP/Twin-View feature.

  • If pressing the appropriate buttons on the TV remote control does not work, then the PIP/Twin-View window might be from a two-tuner cable or satellite set-top box. If this is the case, use the remote control provided with the set-top box to remove the PIP/Twin-View window.

My tv is a sony xbr. somehow we got ourselves a black box (small) in the lower right hand corner. The remote doesn't have pip and we never used the pip. but i cannot get rid of this box. i tried to reset...

A solution I found for our KV-32XBR200 was to press Setup on top of the set, then select the "Demo" item with TV/Video. The text overlay apparently banished PIP. Verified this twice, as I'm at this page because our remote can only turn PIP on :-).

Don't have original remote control. Somehow, a window for PIP opened, and I can't get it to turn off. Have a new sony remote RM-V310A, but the PIP button won't activate the remote. Any...

Many TV functions can be controlled from the on-screen menus using buttons on the TV itself. These include all kinds of settings however Sony did not include PIP in these menus. Therefore a valid remote is required to operate PIP. One thing you could try is removing the cable from the secondary input on the TV which provides the signal for the other picture. Without an input signal PIP may be disabled. Also, try buying a universal remote and setting the proper code for your TV. Original remote could be hard to find but may have one.

I lost the remote and cannot remove the PIP.

Hi, I have the same TV, remote too. From what I can see you will need the remote to turn off the PIP, but if you unplug the TV and the plug it in again it may reset it to original values. As long as it is plugged it will retain certain low power settings.
If your Comcast remote is a learning remote, you can probably program it to mimic/replace the remote you lost, but you will need the codes from the Sony remote, or borrow one so the codes can be "learned" by the Comcast or some other learning remote. The codes would likely be available online, from Sony.
Worst case - I'll buy for you a cheap learning remote and dump the codes from mine if you want.

Also, you may find a used remote on line.

Channel no showing on tv


Without knowing the brand and model of the TV, I can only venture that somehow the PIP feature has been engaged. Disable the PIP (using the remote).

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Turning OFF picture in picture!

I have an old Sony Trinitron; had the same problem... somehow turned on the pip while moving the television off its stand. I have neither the remote nor the manual.

Does your tv have a 'demo' button on the front? Mine does; when I pressed it, the pip disappeared!

PIP for Sony KV-27XBR45 television trouble shooting

If you have the original remote for this TV on the pip menu (left side slider on remote all the way up) there is a pip off button. If you unplug the unit long enough it should go back to normal. If you go into demo mode and then exit mode you will again be out of the pip. With out the original remote you cannot easily turn pip off.
