Question about Sony Televison & Video

Open Question

I am trying to get the best manual set up for my Sony Bravia KDL-40P55xx but all the advice on the web says to put the picture mode onto 'manual' .... I only have cinema as a choice, but I do remember when I first bought the TV there were more choices. How can I get the choices back?

Hi there,

I've been looking into this myself as I've also recently purchased the KDL-40W4000. I was watching a murky old film and was getting a bit of sludgy ghosting but found that by reducing the contrast to 25, setting the backlight on low, colour on neutral and the brightness about 40-60 (and taking ALL advanced noise functions off), this reduced the ghosting considerably.

BUT, this is quite a cool and dark image. If you watch standard TV and films mainly, a variation of the Cinema setting is probably the best overall setting i.e.

backlight: min
contrast: 79
brightness: 50
colour: 53
colour temp: Warm 2 (although Warm 1 is less yellow and still fine)
sharpness: min
noise reduction: off
mpeg nr: off
contrast enhancer: off
colour space: standard

SOURCE: Sony Bravia KDL-40W4500 turns off

This can indicate a problem with the high voltage circuits. Since this is a new set, it should still be under warranty. DO NOT open up the unit as that will void the warranty. Return the set or request warranty service. Note the 8 blinks when you request service as that should allow them to bring the correct replacement parts.

Keep us posted.

Sony bravia kdl 52w3000 picture adjustment. The picture is too bug for the screen. I cant figure out how to shrink it.


I have a different Sony, but I think they all work the same. Go to menus (Press Home) Then select "Settings" and select "Screen Settings". Set Wide Mode to "full", Auto Wide to "off" , Auto Display Area to "off", Display Area to "normal". I hope this works for you

Sony BRAVIA KDL-40V2500 audio not working


I would Google the model number carefully for "problems" "no sound" and usually this set will display some kind of error code===it may even have a hard reset to try===service manuals are available on the net/web to allow you to see how the sound circuit is set up etc.

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.

KDL-52S5100 Picture settings always revert back to "vivid" mode after 5 mins or so.


More than likely the TV is in the "retail" mode which intentionally reverts to the "vivid" mode after a short period of time on the other settings, deemed best for retailer display puposes.

Follow the "return to factory settings" instructions found in the operators manual, pg 21 of KDL52S5100. Only the first half of the instructions are needed to put the TV in "home" mode, the 2nd slection to make after "language. After you have slected "home" I do not beleiev you need to any go further into the setup menu.

"Turn the TV on. Press and hold the "^" (up arrow) button on the remote and then push the "Power" button on the TV. Release the "up" arrow."

You should now be back to start, select langauge and home mode and then exit.

You now should be good to go and your picture mode selections should now stay put.

Sony has live tech help "chat" and I would suggest using them if this doesn't get it done - but I'm 99.95% sure this is your fix.

When i change the picture settings to my custom selections, it always reverts back to the vivid preset after about 5 minutes.


Most likely you are in "retail" mode which intentionally reverts back to "vivid" which is deemed best for store display purposes.

Go to pg 21 of the manual and follow the first half of the reset instructions. Once you've chosen "home" (after first selecting "langauge") you need not go any deeper into set-up mode, just exit at this point.

99.95% sure this will solve your problem and your "picture" selections will now stay put.

Sony Bravia - picture don't fit the screen


I have a Scientific Atlanta cable box w/ Time Warner. I followed the instructions below for the cable box. Somehow it reset my picture and I can now read the ticker at the bottom of the screen and the different picture sizes seem to work properly. Good Luck.

Try plugging the coax directly into the T.V. or from you VCR or DVD player then to the TV. The bravia sets also have various picture mode settings as you will discover when you go through your manual. Cable boxes or splitters can cause problems also is they are not of good quality. I love my 40.
