How to Turn Off the Startup Sound on a Sony Bravia

by Kathryn Hatashita-Lee

The Sony BRAVIA TV gives a startup sound as the Sony logo appears on the screen. Models KDL-32BX300 and KDL-22BX300 give you a remote control option to adjust this default setting for a silent startup as you power on your TV. Pressing the arrow buttons plus the confirmation button will help you navigate the menu to the Startup Sound option.

Step 1

Press the “Power” button on the remote control to turn on your TV.

Step 2

Press the “Menu” button to display the menu settings on the Picture box.

Step 3

Press the down-arrow to navigate down the list until the “Setup” icon lights up with a white background. This icon resembles a three-tiered file cabinet.

Step 4

Press the “+” or center button on the remote control to open the list of Setup options in the right pane.

Step 5

Press the down-arrow until the “Startup Sound” option lights up.

Step 6

Press the “+” button to display the “On” and “Off” options in a small window.

Step 7

Press the down-arrow to select “Off.”

Step 8

Press the “+” button to save this option.

Step 9

Press the “Menu” button to exit.

Press the “Power” button to turn off the set and then press the “Power” button again to test if the startup sound is silent as the Sony logo displays on your screen.


  • Some BRAVIA remote controls have a “Home” button instead of a “Menu” button.
  • Point the remote control at the IR sensor located on the front of your TV. Keep the front of your TV clear of any obstruction that can block the path.
