How to Reset a Sony Bravia XBR4 Without a Remote

Updated February 21, 2017

The Sony line-up of high-definition television sets have many different options in their settings menus to make the TVs more personalised for individual users. You can change brightness, contrast and many other settings while in the menu. If for any reason you need to reset the settings of a Sony XBR4 HDTV, you can do so using the remote control. If you do not have the remote, you can use the buttons on the TV itself to navigate the menu and reset the TV.
