I have a Sony Trinitron XBR tv. I cannot remove the pip. I have a universal remote and not the original remote. The remote has a pip button that makes the pip larger or smaller but does not turn off the pip function. Unplugging the TV does not help. I cannot get the pip function on the Comcast remote to do anything whatsoever. Any help for me out there anywhere?
I had a Panasonic T.V. with the same problem. To get rid of it, I turned the T.V. off; and while turning it back on, I held the power button and the action button (menu/settings button) at the same time for three seconds (try holding it for a bit more if 3 seconds isn't changing anything).
Hope this helps.
