"SONY" logo not showing at the start up of the TV

by A380747 / December 3, 2013 12:38 AM PST

My 1 week old Sony Bravia TV was working fine until a day ago. i.e., whenever it was switched on, it used to show the SONY logo in the beginning. But now something is wrong I guess and it is not showing SONY anymore.
I did the factory reset, but nothing happened . I know it is not a big issue, but still that is something that one dosent expect can happen. Could it be some virus threat; I have no idea. This sounds silly, but its still annoying.!!!!!!!!!

Model no of the TV

Sorry, I forgot to mention that . It is KDL-46W950A. And when I do a software update, it shows the logo for a short period of time and then goes blank and then starts again.
This may be because of the software installation process.
But even now the logo dosent show .

Let's hope Sony will answer or provide a manual about the logo on/off such as I noted above in the link.

The TV and the manual is there on Sony's site.

I think they don't supply W950A in the US, that's why you are not able to find it.
It's okay. I'll try something . But I hope u understood what I meant about the logo showing when the TV is switched on . Hope you'll find something about it.

That's a partial clue.

I supplied the e-how link but now that I know it's not an US model that doesn't help me find a manual. Sorry if I was unclear. If I don't find an English manual I can't check it.

This is solved too, but not in my favour.

I finally found out when the logo shows up again. But for that the main current source should be "on" ALL the time. It is only when the TV is in Standby mode with the power switched on and you turn the TV on again, the logo shows.
So that means if the power is turned off and then you switch on the TV for the first time, the SONY logo won't show.

AND I found out a new limitation to this "Power always ON" problem. The CLOCK's timer resets ALWAYS. That means there is no internal battery in the TV for the clock to be running even with the power OFF. I found this out when I set up the clock the first time and then when I switched it on again ( after the power was turned off ), the time disappeared .
In a PC even after the power is turned off and then you switch your computer on, the clock and date still works. I don't if this was neglected with the Designers knowing it or it was just forgotten, this still is annoying, because that's the least one can expect from a TV this expensive.
I don't know about other companies but SONY TV's don't have an in built battery for time and date .
