Sony videoscope XBR - Side by Side screens can't change it back.
I hit something on my universal remote and my TV(sony videoscope XBR) went to Two smaller screens - Side by Side. One on the left was static and the one on the right was my cable programming. I have no idea what I pushed and I don't know how to get it back to One screen. I've tried everything I can think of, please help me

Re: sony videoscope XBR - Side by Side screens can't...
Sounds like your TV has a PIP (picture in picture) that allows your AVI (audio visual input) to be viewed simultaneously with your cable input. Check the manual for the correct buttons, but the one you're looking for says either PIP or AVI or something along those lines. Hope this helps

I don't know if all codes are the same. Comcast Cable gave me a list of codes for their universal remote for their motorola cable boxes. For Sony tvs it says either 0000 or 0111. I still use all 7 of my remotes. Universals are basically only good for power and volume. I need the other remotes handy to enjoy the other functions of my system! Anyway, hope this works 4-u and that you get better use out of it than me.
Hit the set up button on the TV. You'll see options to change the language. The last option is to put the TV in "Demo Mode." Put the TV in Demo mode, when the first screen appears, "Welcome to...." the PIP will disappear. Hit exit before the screen moves to the "Menu." If you miss it, watch the demo once--it will restart--and hit the exit button the next time you see the "Welcome to" message.
I just did this and it worked for me - i hope it works for you.
Please post both the exact model number (on the back) and the blink count. The standby light should be blinking a repeated pattern. That info will indicate the problem circuit and allow us to provide you with the proper parts/steps to resolve this.
This is a convergence problem. Look in the back for a couple of large black ICs attached to a heatsnik. These should be marked STKxxx. These are the convergence ICs and either have bad connections or are defective. If you can solder, try resoldering the pins on these ICs. If that fails to resolve the problem, replace the ICs. There may be other parts that need to be replaced as well. I'll look up your model to find the other parts to check. The convergence board as an assembly, I believe, is no longer available. The parts that you require are available.
just need to balance the three colors red,green and blue that may help remove the front covers and look for black module that have sccree and focus controls just move a little bet left or right be carefull because you can loos the picture e-mail me for more info
I pressed "Demo" on the front of my TV and it worked, I have an old Sony KP-53XBR35 VIDEOSCOPE XBR - no original remote and the Universal remote has PIP button but would not shut it off.
Finally it's off!!!!
