A Sony Bravia V series liquid crystal display flat screen TV displays video in high quality. The values of the picture, sound and screen size can be adjusted to fit the viewer's expectations to her liking with a few quick changes. After the TV is set up, you might need to know how to access these controls.

Picture Settings

A variety of picture settings within the Bravia main menu can be adjusted to achieve the desired picture quality. To reach the picture settings, press the "Menu" button on the remote control and use the navigation button, also on the remote control, to highlight "Picture" and press the select button in the centre of the navigation button to select it. The picture menu features the following values, which can be adjusted up or down in intensity with the left and right navigation buttons: "Picture Mode," "Backlight," "Picture," "Brightness," "Color," "Hue," "Color Temperature," "Sharpness," "Noise Reduction" and "CineMotion."

Sound Settings

Sound settings are accessible through the main menu by pressing "Menu" and selecting "Sound." After the sound settings tab is selected, you can tweak the "Sound Mode," which offers "Dynamic" with an emphasis on treble and bass, "Standard" for overall home use, "Clear Voice" with an emphasis on voice and "Custom" for personalised settings. If "Custom" is selected, you then have choice to adjust "Treble," "Bass," "Balance" and "Surround Sound."

Screen Settings

The screen settings are accessed within the main menu in the "Screen" menu. The "Screen" menu allows you to modify the size of the screen to fit the video source settings, if necessary. You can force the picture to cover the entire screen regardless of its original settings with the "Wide Mode" or "Auto Wide" settings, or you can snap a full screen picture to is proportional size with the "4:3 Default" settings. Use the navigation buttons to cycle through the screen settings.

Widescreen Settings

While in "Wide Mode" you can cycle through different widescreen settings for both a full-screen video and a widescreen video by pressing the "Wide" button on the remote control, until the desired setting is reached. "Wide Zoom" zooms into both a widescreen and full screen picture, until it fills the screen. "Normal" mode renders the video as its dictated by the video source. "Full" completely expands a full screen picture to fit the screen and displays a widescreen picture normally. "Zoom" zooms into a full screen picture, until it fits the screen, and cuts off the top and bottom to maintain proper proportions.
