XD8305 reboots when changing inputs


Novice Member

I have a Sony Bravia KD-49XD8305 Android TV which I have had for around 5 years. Its been generally a decent reliable TV, albeit with a slightly clunky interface but recently I have had issues when changing inputs, eg to my Apple TV, Nvidia Shield or PS5.
What frequently happens is that the TV will reboot as it goes through the Google Android reboot screen. It does not happen all the time and does not seem to have any pattern.

I have read that some TV's have had issues with firmware updates causing a reboot loop, but its not like that. It does not get stuck, just random reboots. More annoying than anything else. Its on the latest available update, so no updates to do.

I had wondered if this was a sign that the TV has a hardware fault and might be on its way out and need to start looking for a new TV. Unfortunately I'm not sure of a way to check any other things to test TV

Thanks for any help or advice on this
