On moisture condensation
[]
If your TV is moved directly from a cold to a warm location or is placed
in a humid room, or if the room temperature changes suddenly, the
picture may blur or show poor coloc This is caused by moisture
condensation
on the lenses inside. Wait a few hours to let the moisture
evaporate before turning on the TV. When the condensation
evaporated, the picture will return to normal.

To minimize reflection, the screen surface has a special coating.
Inappropriate

Special
Cleaning the Screen Surface
Dust and dirt on the screen can affect the picture quality. To dust off the
screen use a soft cloth. Be sure to follow the cleaning instruction on page 6
for stubborn stains and dirt.
Temporary Image Retention
When high contrast non-moving images such as station logos and channel
numbers are displayed for a long period of time, there may be some image
retention on the screen. This is only a temporary condition. Turning off the
power for a while or letting the TV run on another channel will eliminate the
retained image.
Projection
Lamp
Your TV uses a projection lamp as its light source. As with any lamp, it has a
lifespan and needs to be replaced when the LAMP LED blinks or the screen
becomes darker. Your TV also has a function to display a message
"Projection lamp is nearing end of life. Please replace the lamp." to let you
know that the lamp has reached its expected lifespan. Note the following:
[]
After turning on your TV. it may take a while (l minuteorless)
before
the picture appears.

When the projection lamp wears out, the screen goes dark. Replace
lamp with the supplied Sony XL-5300 lamp.

people should lift the front and sides. Support the TV by placing your hands
in the holes on the lower part of the TV set, and then lift carefully.
Do not grasp the pedestal
or the speakers of the TV.
If you have connected cables and cords, be sure to unplug them before
moving the TV.

Getting Started
Connecting
the TV
To display clear crisp pictures, you must connect your TV correctly and
select the correct Wide Mode to display the picture in the correct aspect
ratio (see "Changing the Wide Screen Mode" on page 31 ). It is strongly
recommended
that you connect the antenna/cable
input using 75-ohm
coaxial cable to receive optimum picture quality signal. A 300-ohm twin
lead cable can be easily affected by radio noise and the like, resulting in
signal deterioration.
If you use a 300-ohm twin lead cable, keep it as far
away from the TV as possible. Do not use an indoor antenna, which is
especially susceptible to radio noise.
You can also connect a variety of optional equipment to your TV (see page
17). For multiple equipment connections,
please refer to the separate Quick
Setup Guide.

The TV cools down its proiection lamp when the power is turned off. It takes up to
two minutes t_r the picture to come back after the TV is turned on again. Wait for
a while until the picture comes back.
It may be possible to see several pixels, which appear clark or bright when viewing
up close to the screen caused during the manufacturiug of the display device. This
is not a defect with your TV and will not affect the overall picture performance or
reliability of your set. Please view the screen at the recommended viewing
distances.
Turn off the TV for a while or let the TV run on another channel. Unlike plasma
TV and CRT TM image retention on this TV is not permanent. It is only a
temporary condition; see page 10.
Alter turning on the TM you may notice a slight variation in color (tint) and
brightness in certain areas of the picture. This will last only a few minutes each
time you turn on the TV. This is a normal temperature characteristic of the
components and not a malfunction.
If screen is exposed to direct sunlight or strong ambient light, part of the screen
may appear white even when TV is power off. This is due to the strong light
reflecting oft" the TV screen and reflections coming behind the screen. This is a
structural property of the pro}ection TV and is not a defect. Position your TV
away from such light sources.
It is time for you to replace the projection lamp used in your TV.
• Turn to page 66 on "How to Replace the Lamp" and follow the directions for
replacing the lamp.
• Use only the lamp designated for your TV model.
• Set the Lamp Replacement
option in the Setup settings (see page 62).
