  • hi Peg from Sony I'm going to talk about the power indicator led light

  • on your Sony tv and how you can use this light to diagnose the state of your tv

  • if your Sony tv is plugged in and getting power even when it's not turned

  • on you should see a red led light to indicate that the tv is in standby mode

  • if you do not see a red or green light on the tv

  • check to make certain that the tv power cord is plugged in firmly into the back of the tv

  • check the other end of the cord to make sure that it is plugged into a working outlet

  • if your tv is plugged into a power strip

  • make sure that the power strip itself is turned on

  • or try plugging the tv directly into a wall outlet

  • many Bravia tvs also have a power cut off switch on one side which

  • turns the power off completely

  • make sure that this power switch is set to on

  • and then turn on the tv with the supplied remote

  • when you press the power button on your Bravia tv remote control

  • the led should change from red to green to show that the tv is on and working

  • if the power button on your tv remote does not work to turn the tv on

  • try turning the tv on with the built-in power button

  • the built-in power button can be found on the side bottom or top of the tv

  • depending on the model

  • if the tv powers on with the built-in power button

  • then try changing the batteries on your remote control

  • or move any items from in front of the tv which might block the remote signal

  • if the power light has still not changed from red to green when you attempt to

  • power it on

  • and the tv is connected to the internet

  • it is possible that an update is being installed to the tv

  • via the internet connection

  • wait for five to ten minutes and then try turning the tv on again

  • on some models the power led will change to orange or yellow while the

  • tv is installing an update

  • if your tvs power led will not turn green but instead consistently

  • stays red while flashing off and on

  • unplug the tv from an electrical outlet

  • and disconnect any equipment connected to it

  • leave it off for about five minutes

  • then before connecting any other equipment

  • plug the power cord back in

  • you should now be able to turn your tv on

  • now if you are still seeing a red flashing light and the tv will not

  • power on we need to do a factory reset

  • point the remote control at the front of the tv and hold down the up arrow

  • button on the remote

  • while holding down the up arrow button press and release the power button on your tv

  • this resets your tv to factory settings

  • you should now be able to turn on your tv
