Aron,

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,
Best regards

Hi there,

I've been looking into this myself as I've also recently purchased the KDL-40W4000. I was watching a murky old film and was getting a bit of sludgy ghosting but found that by reducing the contrast to 25, setting the backlight on low, colour on neutral and the brightness about 40-60 (and taking ALL advanced noise functions off), this reduced the ghosting considerably.

BUT, this is quite a cool and dark image. If you watch standard TV and films mainly, a variation of the Cinema setting is probably the best overall setting i.e.

backlight: min
contrast: 79
brightness: 50
colour: 53
colour temp: Warm 2 (although Warm 1 is less yellow and still fine)
sharpness: min
noise reduction: off
mpeg nr: off
contrast enhancer: off
colour space: standard

Most likely this is caused by a defective main board. Changing the main board will fix the issue about 95% of the time.

To be absolutely sure, the voltages need to be checked on the power supply. If they are not the values listed in the service manual, then you should replace the power supply instead (accounts for the other 5% of the time).

If audio is OK, the fault is with its T'Con board. If audio too is not there, the main board is faulty. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Viewing it in "Mosaic" will make surf easy. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience.

Sony Bravia KDL 32EX400 stuck on channel one


It sounds that the main system memory IC has damaged. Before make it sure, just make a hard reset to this set, and check whether it helps you. To make it a hard reset, just unplug the AC cord from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 30 minutes or so.
If this do not help you, check and replace the main system memory IC.

I have connected my DVD player to the Bravia tv. How do I get it to operate, I don't know what to do?


You need to toggle through the inputs on the television. Look at your Sony remote, to the top right of the directional keypad, is an "input" button. Turn your DVD playervon, and then press that input button until you see something on your tv screen.
