I have a Sony TV and it is stuck in standby mode. Nothing I do seems to work. The model number is XBR-84X900. How do I get it out of standby mode?

There could be a number of reasons why your TV is stuck in standby mode, but the most common reason is a hardware issue. Here is something you can try to reset your Sony:
