To take advantage of the wide mode feature on your TV, Set the DVD players' aspect ratio to 16:9. For details, refer the operating instructions supplied with your DVD player. Aspect ratio must be set with DVD player. Not with the TV. OK.

I have looked at http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-documents.pl?mdl=KDLV40XBR1

While it is unusual that the power light is steady instead of blinking a trouble code, I still believe the main power supply has failed since the failure is affecting both video and audio.
Since there are now millions of individual components in the chips used in modern sets, it may just have 'hung fire.'
You might try pulling the AC plug overnight to see if a locked-up circuit will recover without power applied.

You can fix it yourself . Just measure the distance between clips to get the dimensions and most glass shops can cut you a mirror to your specs and install it yourself. A repair shop would probably be in the neighborhood of around 350 to repair it. Its just a regular mirror attached to the rear wall of your unit with screw i clips.

I would suggest to call sony and ask them for the price, if that is too expensive; measure the area where the mirror was mounted and instead of buying it from sony, go to a place where they sell mirrors and ask them to cut one for you. Just do not tell them the purpose of it because they may charge you more.
Good Luck.
