Sony reboots every time

Hi, I have a 55" Sony X900 TV and I'm about done with it. Every single time I turn it on it takes at least 45 seconds to start to come on. It will go through the whole Android boot menu before finally coming on. I read somewhere to put new batteries in the remote and I thought there was no way that would make a difference but sure enough it would start right up, no boot, instant on. That worked for about a month then back to the same as before. I again put in new batteries but this time no luck. What could ever be wrong with this thing? I know if my internet is out (using an Ethernet cable) it will just boot over and over and over until I unplug the cable. It must be something simple. If anyone knows please, please share. Thanks

Could it be a faulty remote?

Hi - can I draw your attention to this thread also.

Seems like three of us are having the same issue but across two different models. Mine started doing this very recently. Suspecting since my set upgraded to Oreo / Android 8.

My XE9005 has a great panel and would hate to need to exchange if it’s a software bug.

If you can get it to boot then try to do a firmware update over usb
sounds like an issue with the firmware on the mainboard.
if its just stuck on the reboot you can try hard reset etc..
but its more than likely your mainboard is bricked.

Have you tried dissconnecting all inputs including ethernet and USB and see if it boots normally then ?

Tried everything, if Ethernet is not plugged in it will reboot constantly, If Ethernet IS plugged in it will reboot every time it is turned on. I have disconnected Satellite and AV Receiver ARC no difference

@Cholmes I have a 49XG9005 and a 55AF8 and have recently started getting the same issue on both sets. I was using my Sky Q remote (long press on the power button) to turn the tv off and thought that was the issue. However, having reverted to using the Sony remote to turn the tv off the issue has reoccurred again today.....

Both of my tv’s are getting worse at this. If I leave them switched off for anything more than a couple of hours they become non responsive and eventually reboot.

Has this started since the most recent update? I wonder if the update is somehow to blame?

Kind of..... on my AF8 it started more or less as soon as I manually updated to Oreo, but on my XG9005 it didn’t start happening until at least 2 weeks after it updated.

Have you tried a factory reset?

I'd do a factory reset. I ask because I'm noticing more and more reporting this new issue after updating. It hasn't affected my XF9005 thankfully but it's clear some sets can escape issues that others fall foul to.
