Sony Bravia TVs and bias lights turning on and off seemingly at random when the TV is turned off.

Discovering your bias lights flickering or remaining on when your Sony Bravia TV is turned off can be perplexing, but rest assured, your lighting system is functioning perfectly. The heart of the matter lies not within your bias lights but a recognized standby behavior in the Sony Bravia series—a situation unlikely to see resolution from Sony because of how the memory and USB ports are connected to the TV's "main board." 

This article comes from our commitment to transparency and customer empowerment, highlighting a workaround identified by a vigilant customer, Josh J. His solution not only addresses amplifier interference but also mitigates the "Bravia Standby Bug" (so-named by a project on Github) for bias lighting.

Herein, we guide you through understanding this bug/behavior and navigating the steps to harmonize your bias lighting with your Sony Bravia TV, ensuring your viewing experience remains uninterrupted and your environment perfectly lit, regardless of these unforeseen technical quirks.

Your Sony TV may have a power button, but it never turns off. When it is in "standby mode" it constantly connects to the internet and access its internal storage. Each time it does this, the USB port turns on. So, if it does this every 10 seconds, the lights would turn on and off every 10 seconds in standby. Our simple solution to this is to use a remote control to turn your lights off. To simplify things, you can use a universal remote to control the lights ma le TV.

You probably found this page because when you power your MediaLight (or LED strip from any other brand) from the USB port on your Sony Bravia, the lights are turning on and off at random when the TV is turned off. It's annoying, but it's a first-world problem with workarounds. 

"E le tapeina isi moli moli ma le TV?"

Leai. O isi ituaiga moli e na ona tape pe a tuʻu i fafo pe ua leai se paoa. O le mea lena e te faʻamoemoeina. A e seʻi le moli, e tape. Sulu i totonu ma toe ki. O le lamepa e le o faia se mea. Naʻo moli lava pe a toe faʻaleleia le malosiʻaga.

Uma Sony Bravia TV faia lenei. 

Ole tasi mafuaaga na matou tuʻuina ai se mamao mamao ma MediaLight Mk2 Flex uma. O le MediaLight ua uma foi ona faʻapolokalameina i le tele hubs hubs ma remotes aofia ai le Logitech Harmony ecosystem.

Tali:

1) Faʻaaoga fafo malosiaga ma polokalama la matou taumamao i totonu o lau atamai mamao poʻo le hub.

2) Poʻo le faʻamalosi o lau MediaLight mai le TV, suia le RS232C control mode i le "serial," ma tape moli ma le MediaLight mamao poʻo se poto hub poʻo le mamao lautele
.

O faatonuga ia e suia ai lau RS232C taulaga auala i serial. A maeʻa loa, o le TV o le a otometi lava ona toe amataina. 

Laasaga muamua: 

Alu i le Google lisi ma uma apps vaʻaia. E masani ona e taunuʻu atu i le kilikiina o le "Home" button i lau Bravia remote. Filifili le "Seti" filifiliga i le itu taumatau i luga o le pupuni (o lenei lisi e ono suia i le lumanaʻi Android TV faʻafouga)



Laasaga lua:
Tusi i lalo i le "Network and Accessories" vaega o tulaga ma oe o le a vaʻaia se aitema taʻua o le "RS232C pulea." Filifili.

 

Laasaga tolu:
I lalo o le vaega e faʻatonutonu ai le RS232C, filifili le "Via serial port."

O lau TV o le a toe ola pe a maeʻa ona e filifilia lenei, ma o le taimi e te faia ai lenei mea, o le a tumau pea moli moli pe a tape le TV. E mafai nei ona e faʻamoemoeina faʻamoe moli ma tapuni ma se atamai atamai, lautele mamao ese atu, poʻo le taumamao mamao na matou faʻaaogaina ma lau MediaLight Bias Lighting System. 



Faʻamolemole matau: Android TVs i nisi taimi e faia gaioiga i tua atu, pei o firmware download ma reboots, ma e ono mafai lava ona tape moli i ni seasea taimi, ae latou te le ki ola ma tape le faifai pea, o le a le mafua ai le le malamalama emo ma o le a tali mai lava i tulafono mamao. 

O lea la, o le a le uiga o lenei pe a fai o oe le faʻaituina moli e aofia ai se mamao o loʻo i ai nei se auala i le Bravia standby bug. 👍
