Hello Pete, re the type and age of my TV, it’s a Sony Bravia, date of manufacture 2010. I have previously had a wireless headphone on this but it stopped working about three months ago. I assumed that it was the earphone that was faulty but now I can’t get the ‘Bluetooth’ transmitter to work I’m wondering if the TV is faulty. I need this facility as I’m very deaf. Is there some way to reboot the TV. Everything else appears to be working satisfactorily.
Thank you. Hugh Firth

Hello Pete, will you be giving me a further reply on this?
Expert:  Pete replied 17 days ago.

Hi Hugh, sorry for the delay - my previous reply appears not to have gone through, sorry about that!

You can try resetting the TV - see the following guide:

If the reset does not work, then the TV has a hardware fault and will require a repair or replacement.


Please let me know if you have any further questions on this topic and I'll be happy to help.

Have a good weekend,

Pete, thank you for this. I will try the reset as you suggest, but I have already tried something similar yesterday. It seems there may be, as you suggest, a hardware fault. Thanks again, yours Hugh Firth
