Sorry no.

There were hundreds of models with the Bravia label so nothing specific can be offered. For the old tube models I'd say it's a board failure. For the newer flat screens it could be a board, connection, or panel failure.

It has never been a setting or user serviceable item.

Thanks for responding. It is now saying Bravia Engine Demo Mode (Loop) On or Off but I don't know how to switch it off.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
