Re: Reset Default Settings
Initially, have you tried a full hard reset? If not, pls unplug from the mains. Most current devices would reset and revert back to factory default settings (assuming no internal hardware fault) when unplugged for a considerable period of time (fa couple of hours at least or preferably overnight).
Alternately, pls check if you have "Zoom" enabled.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Good luck and kind regards.

There is a TV/VIDEO button on frond panel of the tv. When you press each time this button then you will able to access different video inputs. if the button is inactive the probably the micro switch for TV/VIDEO button may be faulty. also check the same with the remote. If its doesn't help then try to reset the tv to factory default setting. For that you need the remote. Keep in mind that when you reset the tv to factory default setting all the memorized parameters will erased(like channel memory, personal preference setting etc ). For reseting the tv to factory default do the following
1.Turn on the TV. 2.While holding down the RESET button on the remote control, press the POWER button on the TV front panel. The TV will turn itself off, then back on again. Release the RESET button
Press the TV button on the remote, make sure the TV is plugged in, check the electrical outlet to make sure it is live if the TV does not turn on. If these actions do not solve the problem, press the Power button on the front of the TV. If the TV turns on, replace the batteries in the remote control and reset it by pressing the number 1 button for 60 seconds. If necessary, reprogram the remote.
Unplug the TV for two minutes, then plug it back in if the buttons on the remote don't work. Make sure the remote is in TV mode.
Change the settings on the sleep timer if the TV turns off unexpectedly. Unplug the TV and wait five minutes before plugging it back in if necessary.
Check your antenna connections and cables if the sound is okay but the picture is poor. If all the connections are good, adjust the sharpness function.
Make sure the power cord is properly plugged into a wall outlet if your TV is not powering on.
Make sure the video and audio cables connecting your TV to external devices are secure if you are experiencing a fuzzy picture or no picture.
Reset the parental password if you forgot the password and
are unable to view certain programs. To do this, click "Menu" on your
remote control and use the arrow keys to select "Parental Controls."
Enter the master password, which is "4357" to reset the password.
Turn off the caption vision option if you are seeing a large
black box on your screen. To do this, click the "Menu" button and select
"Setup." Select "Caption vision" and press the "Plus" button on your
controller to set the option to "Off."
Check the "TV/Video" setting if you're not getting a picture
on your screen. You may have inadvertently selected a video input that
isn't active. Press the "TV/Video" button on your remote to cycle
through video inputs.
Alter the brightness settings if you are experiencing a poor
picture or no picture. To do this, press "Menu" and select "Video."
Increase the brightness settings to see if the picture begins to appear.
Make sure the volume is not muted if you are experiencing a
clear picture but no sound. Press the "Mute" button on the remote
control to turn mute on and off.
Power cycle your Sony
Wega if it's frozen or not responding to your remote control. Unplug
the power cord and wait a few seconds. Plug the power cord back in.
Press Menu on tv remote, go to Settings and select Factory Reset and press enter button on remote, tv will reset to factory default settings and turn Off and On again itself, now select HOME mode instead of Shop mode to avoid demo mode and go by initial setup screen instructions. Above are generic info about Sony bravia tv, let me know model number of your tv if you do not see factory reset option in settings menu. Thanks.
Your TV has an SD/ED component input and an HD component input. You are using the HD input. It can only accept HD signals. You need to correct the settings in you cable box. You need to "fix" the video output so that it converts everything to HD. If you have a motorola box, you can usually turn the box off and press the menu button to access the cable box setup menu. Set the 4:3 override to Stretch or Full. If you need more help with this, post back with more information: cable provider, cable box used. I hope this was of some assistance.
HI I have the same problem There are things you can do... For the tuning problem I suspect changing the "RF AGC" will fix that. You need to go into service mode. Turn off TV then hold Vol + and - on front panel and turn on. The TV will come up with extra service menu. Just keep pushing menu till you see "RF AGC" and dont change any values untill you write down what they are or take photo etc. Then just change the "RF AGC" value and see how you go with the tuning. ALL THE BUTTONS ABOVE ARE ON FRONT OF TV. NOT ON REMOTE....Hope this helps....
Most settings and configurations except the Parental Lock could be reverted to factory default by doing a full hard reset. This is done by simply unplugging the unit from the mains for a couple of hours (or overnight preferably). If done and the system/TV will do a reset, all your settings (color, brightness, program selection) will be back to normal (or factory default).
Most parental Locks works with a code or password. Unfortunately, often this requires the use of the original remote that came with the TV.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
when picture is displayed on your tv after pressing menu,press the channel up/down button on the remote or tv. there can also be a button that shifts right to left. this may hilight the the settings you want to change. if the up/down button scrolled you thru the settings, then the right/left buttons should change the settings.
hope it works
1. Press the ACTION button on the remote control to display Main Menu.
2. Press the CH up/down or VOL right/left button to highlight the desired icon.
In Picture menu under VIDEO ADJ. select:
NORMAL - Reset all picture adjustments to factory default settings.
