[Closed] No image on Sony TV

I'm not getting any images on my Sony TV. The audio and subtitles are still working though. It was fine a few days ago and the issue happened just today. I've try reinstalling and still it won't work.

  • Hello Lyn, 
    I have tried all the troubleshooting steps multiple times, and the problem is still there. 
    It is happening for every showthat I have tried to play. My device is a Sony BRAVIA 4K TV. It is running on Android and the Viki app version I am using is 2.17.1. I have also attached pictures of the black screen with subtitles.
