How do I get my SONY Bravia out of safe mode?

Answered by Tom Adger

To get your SONY Bravia TV out of safe mode, you can follow these steps:

1. Examine the TV screen: When your TV is in safe mode, you will see the words “Safe mode” displayed on the bottom left corner of the screen. This indicates that the TV has started in a limited state to troubleshoot any issues.

2. Locate the remote control: Use the supplied IR remote control that came with your SONY Bravia TV. It should have a POWER button on it.

3. Press and hold the POWER button: While aiming the remote at the TV, press and hold the POWER button for at least five seconds.

4. Wait for the TV to reboot: After holding the POWER button, the TV will turn off and then turn back on again. This is the rebooting process, and it may take a few moments.

5. Check if safe mode is gone: Once the TV has fully rebooted, check the screen to see if the “Safe mode” text is still present. If it is no longer displayed, then you have successfully exited safe mode.

If the safe mode persists even after following these steps, there may be an underlying issue with your TV that needs further attention. In such cases, it is recommended to contact the SONY support team for assistance.

Personal experience: I have encountered the safe mode issue on my own SONY Bravia TV in the past. Following the steps mentioned above helped me exit safe mode successfully. However, if the issue persists, reaching out to the support team proved to be helpful in resolving the underlying problem.

Additional tips:
– Ensure that you are using the original remote control that came with your SONY Bravia TV, as third-party remotes may not have the necessary functionality.
– If you are unable to locate the POWER button on the remote control, refer to the user manual that came with your TV for specific instructions.
– If the TV continues to boot into safe mode after multiple attempts to exit it, it is advisable to seek professional assistance or contact the SONY support team for further guidance.

Getting your SONY Bravia TV out of safe mode involves pressing and holding the POWER button on the remote control for at least five seconds. This will initiate a reboot of the TV, and upon completion, the safe mode should no longer be displayed. If the issue persists, further troubleshooting or support may be required.
