Sony TV Instructions

Before you start, be sure to use the correct remote. In this case, the key buttons to look for on the remote are the “Menu” or “Home” button (in most cases this button is light blue, and part of a circle of buttons around the directional arrows), the directional arrows (up, down, left, right) and the “OK” or “Enter” button, which is usually in the middle of the directional buttons, sometimes this is represented by a “+”. You will use these buttons as needed to navigate to and then select different options on screen. In general, use the “OK”/”Enter”/”+” button to select each option.
