  • Issue#142869: Sony - TV guide issue on Bravia Android TV

    Hi, I have a KDL-55W807C and have an issue with the TV guide (EPG). This is the EU version so no Youview. Very often, which is 9 out of 10 times, when we use the EPG to switch channels then we have to do it two times. The first time the screen just goes black with the channel info on the top, but no picture. The TV displays this message in the lower right corner: "The selected service is encrypted or can't be decoded" (translated from Danish). When we open the EPG again and press OK to select the same channel again, then it finally makes the switch. This is very annoying since this is basic TV functionality that should just work. This also happens with the very latest firmware from February 17th. We use Yousee cable TV (Denmark) and have a CI+ card inserted to allow access to the channels that we're subscribing to. Every time we switch channels using the EPG, then we quickly see the CI+ interface with the message "You don't have access to the channel" but it di

  • Issue#58156: Sony Bravia KDL-52WL135 Vertical Lines Issue

    Hi everyone, First time poster here and I need some help with my sony bravia KDL-52WL135. I previously replaced the FB1 (main video) board due to no picture or sound when turning on the set and the TV worked great for many months after replacing it. However, now there is green vertical lines spanning across the display as shown in the attached picture. I've tried replacing the T-Con board thinking it had an issue but the result remained the same. Does anyone have an idea of what it could be? Perhaps its the replacement FB1 board acting up? Thanks for any suggestions. Attached Thumbnails

  • Issue#95284: Sony - 2015 Bravia Android TV Issues

    7 months in and my KD-49X8309C is still not operating reliably, which is clearly the problem that so many are experiencing. I have contacted both Sony and Currys in recent weeks and am awaiting Sony to contact me in the next couple of days for further advice before the set might go away for "repair". After the Feb FW update I have had to perform 2 factory resets as YouView would not install correctly so I have left it off. The set has turned itself on after being switched off on the remote, and yesterday there was sound, but no picture on any digital TV channel when the set was first switched on. A "Restart" from the Settings Menu/About seems to have cured that - for the present. The problems are clearly software related and the fact that they exhibit themselves unreliably and randomly is SO FRUSTRATING. Why should we have to put up with televisions that do not offer simple and straightforward functionality? They are clearly not fit for purpose and Sony really do need to do the right t

  • Issue#139491: Sony - Bravia 43W805 Android TV not selecting correct colour temperature bug.

    After being turned off for a length of time greater than the Daydream timer the TV will not select the correct colour temperature, Expert 1 after being turned back on. I have everything connected via a receiver into HDMI 4, and use the Custom picture settings (although the problem effects the other settings too). Steps to recreate. 1. Set the Daydream timer to 5 minutes (the problem exists no matter where the timer is set too but this allows for easier testing). 2. Set the picture settings too Custom and make sure the colour temperature is set to Expert 1. 3. Turn off the TV 4. Wait for more than 5 minutes. 5. Turn on the TV.  6. The picture will no longer be using the Expert 1 colour temperature, even though it is still listed as doing so in the settings. 7. Go into the picture settings via the Action Menu. 8. Highlight and click on the Colour Temperature setting. 9. The picture wil revert to using the Expert 1 colour setting

  • Issue#193794: Sony - Re: Bravia 2015 Android TV Issues

    Success at last - a FULL refund from Currys after buying my Sony KD-49X8309C last July! Like others I have experienced many of the problems described and I began my quest for recompense after the October update. My problems were described and logged soon after that update with Citizens Advice, Currys and Sony. At the time I was optimistic that things would be resolved by Sony, but after the December and February updates it was clear that they were unable to guarantee a fully functioning and reliable television - such a shame as the picture quality was excellent after appropriate tweaking of the settings. Throughout February I have been in regular contact with Currys and Sony by both email and/or phone. I must say that Currys have been both supportive and helpful and I managed to get a direct line to one person to discuss problems and keep me updated - essential I think to get the outcome you want. (He soon discovered that Sony Support left much to be desired with the constant referral

  • Issue#221944: Sony - My SONY BRAVIA KDL-55W800C keeps looping the SONY logo and the ANDROID logo back and forth

    I just bought my SONY BRAVIA 55W800C barely 5 months ago. I hadn't had any problems yet, but then all of a sudden tonight, I turned on the TV and it has continuously looped and looped and looped for hours and won't stop. It goes from the rotating little color ****** that form the android logo, then to the SONY logo, then back to the rotating little color ****** that form the android logo, then back to the SONY logo, and it keeps doing that over and over and over. It's driving me CRAZY and I've tried everything. I've tried unplugging the TV and plugging it back in; I've tried pressing buttons on the back of the TV; I've tried disconnecting all of the HDMI cords; I've tried EVERYTHING. My TV remote won't even work in any way shape or form with the TV. The only way the TV will even turn off is by unplugging the ****** thing. PLEASE tell me someone knows how to fix this agonizingly annoying problem?????

  • Issue#251605: Sony - Sony Bravia EPG language issue

    Bought Sony Bravia KDL-50W755C. Very annoyed to see it has the same problem with the EPG as my almost 10 years old Bravia. I live in Finland but want to use my TV menu in English because my wife speaks it. This switches the EPG guide to Swedish which I don't speak and it bugs the hell out of me. I've tried in the settings to choose audio and subtitle 1. language Finnish and 2. language Enlish but it doesn't help. What is weird is that some channels show Finnish program info but most of them are in Swedish. And what I've heard this is pretty common issue in TV's, some people said that even if you set even the menu language in Finnish the problem still occurs. Finland is officially a two language country but most of us (80%) doesn't speak Swedish. If there is some kind of trick for this to make it work please share. Figured it would be very easy to fix sotfware-wise but Sony just doesn't seem to care.

    I have just purchased a Sony Bravia KDL43W805C and updated yesterday to the latest firmwared. After scanning the satellite tuner, I have several hundreds of programmes. I need to go through these to delete and reorder them, but the built-in functionality is severely lacking in this department.I discovered a piece of software called Sony Editor, but this requires the programme list to be transfered to a USB drive.

    Hi, I have the KDL-50W755C, Bravia 2015 Android TV. Unfortunately, the time is wrong - its time is 88 minutes in the future. I wanted to change it in the settings, but all options are greyed out.

    Hi all I'm hoping someone can help me pinpoint an issue in my setup that has emerged this week... My home entertainment setup was as follows: TV - Sony KD-49X8305CReceiver - Sony STR-DN860BR Player - Sony BDP-S550Satellite - Sky+ HD BR and Satellite plug into Receiver and Receiver connected to TV via HDMI 4/ARC. I've been using the Kodi app on the TV to play video streamed from a NAS. Everything was working great, the TV passed surround sound via ARC to the receiver when using Kodi, and the receiver played surround sound from the Sky box and the BR player.  Bravia Sync was working great - Sky+ box turned TV and receiver on when powered up, and tuned the receiver correctly when selected; Kodi switched the receiver to TV input when selected and played sound via ARC. This week, I've since updated the firmware to Build "SVP4KDTV15_EU-user 5.1.1 LMY48E.S223 3.395" (which seemed to work fine) and I've also had Sky Q installed. Now, Bravia Syn

  • Issue#591792: Sony - Sony Bravia - HDMI Sound issue

    Hi All, I have a Sony Bravia KDL-42W635A, this has been working perfectly until a couple of days ago. I was watching a recorded program on my Virgin TiVo box, then all of a sudden the picture went fuzzy (like when a VGA cable was loose on a computer) and the TV then turned off. After the TV started again, the picture on the HDMI connections is fine but there is no sound. I know there is sound on the TV as Youtube works fine. I also know the HDMI cables are working fine because I am currently using an old TV. I also noticed that the hard drive I had connected was also not being detected. I reset the TV back to factory settings and went through the set up again, still no joy :-(  Can someone please help? ThanksZubair
