To perform a reset you will need to disconnect the TV completely from power for at least 30 seconds, if this doesn't resolve your problem then you may have hardware that has expired in your device. Without physically looking at your device I can't say with certainty what your problem is, it could be your PCB. There are video's online you can visit on how to test a PCB for faults.
If you are not comfortable troubleshooting your device I would suggest contacting a local electronic repair shop near you, however I will link you to a generic instructional video showing you how to perform basic troubleshooting of your device.

Hope this helps,

Use code search on your URC to find something that works. If a search through all codes stored in the URC fails, try a different one.

Although I am just guessing, most Sony equipment uses metric screws. Go to a Home Depot or similar store and take the piece that you have that contains the threaded fittings and they will help you find the screws you need. This page of the manual gives some info about the screws such as not longer than 1/2" (or 12mm) to prevent damage to the set. Sony customer service may be able to supply replacement screws too.

Fault at its main digital board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.
In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.
Before going further; try a hard reset first. If it does not help you, replace the main digital board. There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; visit the site linked here.

Hi there,
If you haven't done so already, check that the cable between your tv and digital cable box(probably HDMI) is secure at both ends. If it is, try a different cable and/or different port on your tv if you have more than one. If the issue is still there after you've tried these options it's most likely an issue with either the digital box or tv. I would contact manufacturer at this stage for advise and possible replacement of tv or box if they are under warranty.
Hope this helps.

it is hard to be sure what the issue is but are you sure it is not the cable or hdmi connection are you using an air antenna or actual cable or satellite signal this issue sounds like a non cable service issue meaning you have an air antenna hooked up is this true?

There is no way to really check a T con without a lot of test equipment, only thing that is serviceable on that board is the small fuse that is by the LVDS connector...

Serious! If the TV is new, you may check your homeowners insurance for a replacement. The Power company can Verify the power fluctuation for you. When an appliance receives a Power Surge like that, the sensitive electronics are damaged or weakened.
For PROTECTION: Get a 1000Watt UPS and use it between the house power and the TV.

Try This.

You have issues with the Tcon board, this is a case where you could try putting it in the oven and baking it, below is a video on how to do this, if it doesn't fix the issue and I think it will in your case you will need a new board

Sometimes the TV will lock out other inputs when a cable is connected. Try the antenna by itself and put the TV in Channel scan mode. If this works reconnect the cable TV cable. If that doesn't work you may need an A/B switch
