I'm hooking up my Brava TV to a cable imput. the TV was set up for HDMI for a few years and now I'm going straight to Cable. I can't get the TV to get out of HDMI and into Cable imput.
Make: sony Brava
I tried to use imput to change from HDMI to cable and it won't let me toggle up to cable. It's locked on HDMI. How do I change it to cable imput.
first lets try to unplug the tv and wait five mins then plug back in and see what happens.
It didn't change it wil not allow me to switch out of HDMI when selecting the input button and hitting channel down
I already did that and there wasn't any change it's locked in HDMI imput and all I have is a cable imput
have you hit the tv`s menu button and gone into setup and tried to auto program the cable?
When I do to menu and sellect imput I'm able to select cable imput and it's set. when i exit the top left of the TV show HDMI input with no signal
you are using the sony remote?
yes and even when I go to the side panel on the TV I select Input and it comes up until I push the channel down butten and it doesn't allow me to move off HDMI when I hit channel down it goes out of the input select. like it's locked in HDMI some how. I had the best buy good guys set up the TV with a receiver and HDMI input but I don't have those any more just a cable input directly into the TV
ok i can tell you how to reset the tv back to the day you bought it. but this resets everything in the tv. do you want to do this?
ok with the tv off hit the following buttons on the remote all within 5 secs
display 5 volume up power
this will bring up a service menu the scroll down to factory default and hit enter
let me know how this works
ok it's running auto program and has found 50 analog channels and 1 digital but it's still searching. don't want to cancel it for fear I'll need to start over. The search is very slow.
yes this search is slow but we are on the right track.
it's still searching has 50 analog and 4 digital
this is a slow process. i would just leave it over night and let it run it`s course. i think you are ok and it just needs to program at this point.
ok thank you for telling me how to reset to factory default. It is seeing channels so that's a good sign. wish they wouldn't hide the "how to reset TV to factory default".
Thank again for helping
you are so welcomei am here all day tomorrow if you need me.
