Sure sounds like the power supply board received an insult that allowed a different voltage to work for a while . UPS will regulate top 120 volt whereas mains may be higher or lower . You may be able to change bad capacitors or just buy the power board between 80 to 200 dollars .
If it was connected to UPS during surge it should have been protected...make sure you are connected to 'battery' side as a lot of UPS have a 'surge only' side that will not stop a rapid on/off power insult .

For which remote exactly? Each manufacturer of programmable/learning remotes has their own code base and unique numbers for each code.

Asking for a code is like asking for the postcode/zip code of Acacia Avenue but without specifying the city and district.

powersource problems, try taking it to a certified service

It is possible that the receiver in the TV has failed.

Sony Bravia... | Answered on Dec 04, 2013

If this is an on board (inside the TV) dvd reader writer than the device itself has failed and needs to be replaced. Call sony support and give them the TV model and location of make could be Canada , US or Mexico. They will identify the psrt snf quote ytou a price for replacement.
The cost of an onsite visit is a minimum $99.00 plus the part. So if you are handy take it apart yourself and just duplicate the removal of the part in reverse and it should work.
Good Luck Ed Pinero

If it's new, get it replaced. Video board problem.

Make sure you are plugged into the right audio input. They are not always the clearest with lableing those things.

If you are using the Component Cables make sure the switch on the cable(part that you insert into Xbox 360) is set to HDTV and not TV because if its set to TV, no matter what resolution you choose it will go back to 480i.

If your using HDMI cable make sure that your TV is also outputting at an HD resolution. Like okay let me explain this more clearly I'm not sure on Sony HDTV's but we have a 46" Sharp Aquos HDTV LCD. I found out that the TV itself was still set to output at 480i even though the Direct TV receiver was set to HD so I went to my TV's options and changed to output the TV at 1080i then after that everything was clear because both the receiver and the HDTV was outputting at HD.

That maybe your problem. If your 360 in the settings menu is saying its at 720p and your TV still looks long, maybe your TV's Zoom options are set to Stretch or Zoom, so basically you need to change your TV's options to output at Normal.

In case of a problem or clarification or my solution was insufficient, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Check your remote batt first. if batt are new, check infra red light from remote using camera (selular cam etc). If infra red flashed on cam, that indicate remote is no problem. Call technician to check your tv.

When you changed remotes, did you use the same batteries? The batteries in the remote may just be almost dead.
Clean the Plexiglas in front of the infrared receiver on the TV.

Sounds like you may have corrosion or water damage within your television. When electronics come in contact with any fluid it is best to leave them completely off/unplugged/battery-less for at least 24 to allow time to dry.

However, urine is corrosive by nature and could have permanently damaged your TV's internal components.

If your warranty covers accidental spills then you should be able to have the TV repaired or replaced at no charge (except for perhaps shipping if Sony asks you to send it to their warehouse or distribution center).

If not, you could always pull the excuse card. I believe, however, that Sony does warranty tests on all major products, so this most likely will not fly.

Best of luck.

check the sound board.that should help

Sony Bravia... | Answered on Aug 25, 2009

With the TVs remote, look for the format button and press it until it says normal on the screen. If you are also using a Cable Box, check the setting for picture size on that too. It is easy to get odd interaction between the two.
I hope this helps,

Hi Sherry, you can test your remote control to see if all the keys work correctly
Take your cell phone, put in camera mode and point the emitting LED of the remote control towards the camera,
press the keys, one at a time and see if the emitting LED is illuminated, if so, try the volume up key, if the light does not turn on, you could carefully disassemble the remote control and clean the contacts and the keyboard internally rubber,
Do not use alcohol to clean
the rubber keyboard, you can clean it with warm water and detergent then let it dry very well,
the contact plate, you can use a cloth with some liquid to clean the glass,
the idea is to remove the rubber residue on the contacts
then arm again and test, but you have results consult a specialized technical service
I hope you find the suggestion useful
Greetings Franco Dosil

Hola Sherry, puedes probar tu control remoto para saber si todas la teclas funcionan correctamente
Toma tu celular, pon en modo camara y apunta el Led emisor del control remoto hacia la camara,
presiona las teclas, una por vez y fijate si se ilumina el Led emisor, si es asi, prueba la tecla de subir el volumen, si no se prende la luz, podrias desarmar con cuidado el control remoto y limpiar internamente los contacto y el teclado de goma,
No Uses Alcohol para limpiar
el teclado de goma, lo puedes limpiar con agua tibia y detergente luego dejalo secar muy bien,
la placa de los contactos, puedes usar un pa?o con un poco de liquido para limpiar los vidrios,
la idea es sacar el residuo de goma que hay sobre los contactos
luego arma nuevamente y prueba, sino tienes resultados consulta a un servicio tecnico especializado
Espero te resulte util la sugerencia
Saludos Franco Dosil
