My Sony Android OLED TV switches to screen saver mode. Only "BRAVIA" is displayed.

    IMPORTANT: This article applies only to specific products and/or operating systems. Check Applicable Products and Categories for details.

    To protect the TV from image retention, a screen saver is activated if your OLED TV is idle for a certain period of time.

    When the screen saver is activated, only the "BRAVIA" logo is displayed in the bottom right area of the screen, as shown in the image below.


    The screen saver is cancelled and returns to the previous screen when the remote control is operated.

    Follow the steps to change the screen saver run time depending on the operating system of your TV.

    TIP: To check the type of your TV, refer to the article How to tell the difference between an Android and non-Android TV.
