IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
For your protection, please read these instructions completely, and
keep this manual for future reference.
Carefully observe and comply with all warnings, cautions and
instructions placed on the set, or described in the operating
instructions or service manual.
WARNING
To guard against injury, the following basic safety precautions
should be observed in the installation, use, and servicing of the set.
Use
Power Sources
This set should be operated only from the type
of power source indicated on the serial/model
plate. If you are not sure of the type of electrical
power supplied to your home, consult your
dealer or local power company. For those sets
designed to operate from battery power, refer

grounding type plug (a plug having a third pin for grounding).
Follow the instructions below:
For the set with a polarized AC power cord plug
This plug will fit into the power outlet only one
way. This is a safety feature. If you are unable to
insert the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing
the plug. If the plug should still fail to fit, contact your electrician to
have a suitable outlet installed. Do not defeat the safety purpose of
the polarized plug by forcing it in.
Alternate Warning
For the set with a three-wire grounding type AC plug
This plug will only fit into a grounding-type
power outlet. This is a safety feature. If you are
unable to insert the plug into the outlet, contact
your electrician to have a suitable outlet installed.
Do not defeat the safety purpose of the grounding plug.
Overloading
Do not overload wall outlets, extension cords or
convenience receptacles beyond their capacity,
since this can result in fire or electric shock.
Always turn the set off when it is not to be
used. When the set is left unattended and
unused for long periods of time, unplug it
from the wall outlet as a precaution against
the possibility of an internal malfunction that
could create a fire hazard.
Do not disconnect the antenna or the power cord during a heavy
storm. Lightning may strike while you are holding the cable or
cord, causing serious injury. Turn off your TV and wait for the
weather to improve.
Memory Stick
To protect small children from injury from Memory Stick Media,
remove all Memory Stick media from the TV’s Memory Stick slot
and store it in a safe location when it is not in use.
2
Object and Liquid Entry
Never push objects of any kind into the set
through the cabinet slots as they may touch
dangerous voltage points or short out parts that
could result in a fire or electric shock. Never spill
liquid of any kind on the set.
Attachments
Do not use attachments not recommended by the
manufacturer, as they may cause hazards.
Do not place any objects, especially heavy objects,
on top of the set. The object may fall from the set,
causing injury.
Cleaning
Unplug the set from the wall outlet before
cleaning or polishing it. Do not use liquid
cleaners or aerosol cleaners. Use a cloth lightly
dampened with water for cleaning the exterior
of the set.
If a snapping or popping sound from a TV set is
continuous or frequent while the TV is operating,
unplug the TV and consult your dealer or service
technician. It is normal for some TV sets to make
occasional snapping or popping sounds,
particularly when being turned on or off.
Installation
Always use two or more people to lift or move the set. The set is
heavy and the bottom surface is flat. Serious injury can result from
trying to move the set by yourself alone, or from unsteady
handling. Install the set on a stable, level surface.
Water and Moisture
Do not use power-line operated sets near
water — for example, near a bathtub,
washbowl, kitchen sink, or laundry tub, in a
wet basement, or near a swimming pool, etc.
Accessories
Do not place the set on an unstable cart, stand,
tripod, bracket, table or shelf. The set may fall,
causing serious injury to a child or an adult, and
serious damage to the set. Use only a cart or stand
recommended by the manufacturer for the
specific model of TV. Any mounting of the
product should follow the manufacturer’s
instructions, and should use a mounting
accessory recommended by the manufacturer. An
appliance and cart combination should be moved
with care. Quick stops, excessive force, and
uneven surfaces may cause the appliance and cart
combination to overturn.
Disconnect all cables and cords from the set before attempting to
move the set.
Do not allow children or pets to climb up onto, or push against, the
set. The set may fall, causing serious injury.
Ventilation
Lightning
The slots and openings in the cabinet and in the
back or bottom are provided for necessary
ventilation. To ensure reliable operation of the set,
and to protect it from overheating, these slots and
openings must never be blocked or covered.
For added protection for this television receiver during a lightning
storm, or when it is left unattended and unused for long periods of
time, unplug it from the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna.
This will prevent damage to the receiver due to lightning and
power line surges.
❑
Never cover the slots and openings with a
cloth or other materials.
Service
❑
Never block the slots and openings by
placing the set on a bed, sofa, rug or other
similar surface.
❑
Never place the set in a confined space, such
as a bookcase, or built-in cabinet, unless
proper ventilation is provided.
❑
Do not place the set near or over a radiator
or heat register, or where it is exposed to direct sunlight.
Power Cord Protection
Do not allow anything to rest on or roll over the
power cord, and do not place the set where the
power cord is subject to wear or abuse.
Antennas
Outdoor Antenna Grounding
If an outdoor antenna is installed, follow the precautions below. An
outdoor antenna system should not be located in the vicinity of
overhead power lines or other electric light or power circuits, or
where it can come in contact with such power lines or circuits.
Damage Requiring Service
Unplug the set from the wall outlet and refer servicing to qualified
service personnel under the following conditions:
❑
When the power cord or plug
is damaged or frayed.
❑
If liquid has been spilled into
the set or objects have fallen into the

Introducing the FD Trinitron Wega
Overview
This chapter describes the contents of the package in which the TV is
shipped and provides an overview of the features of your Wega TV.
Presenting the FD Trinitron Wega
The FD Trinitron Wega (pronounced VAY-GAH) is characterized by
outstanding contrast, uncompromising accuracy, and corner-tocorner detail.
You will recognize the superiority of Wega technology almost
immediately. The first thing you will probably notice is minimal glare
from the flat picture tube. This flat-screen technology improves
picture detail without distortion, unlike conventional curved screens.
The FD Trinitron delivers outstanding image detail not only at the
screen center, but also at the corners — so you can enjoy a bright,
clear picture from any location in a room.
Package Contents
Along with your new Trinitron TV, the packing box contains a remote
control and two AA (R6) batteries. These items are all you need to set
up and use the TV.
Features
Some of the features that you will enjoy with your new TV include:
❑
DRC® (Digital Reality Creation) Multifunction: Unlike
conventional line doublers, the DRC Multifunction feature
replaces the signal’s NTSC waveform with the near-HD
equivalent, while doubling the number of vertical and horizontal
lines. This results in four times the density for quality sources,
such as DVD, satellite, and digital camcorders. The Video Menu
allows you to select interlaced, progressive, or CineMotion™
output. The DRC Palette option lets you customize the level of
detail (Reality) and smoothness (Clarity) to create up to three
custom palettes.
❑
Scrolling Index: Lets you preview and select programs from a
scrolling index of video pictures.
7
❑
Favorite Channels: Allows you to preview and select from eight
of your favorite channels.
❑
ClearEdge VM™ Velocity Modulation: Sharpens picture
definition by enhancing vertical lines.
❑
Steady Sound®: Equalizes volume levels so there is consistent
output between programs and commercials.
❑
Memory Stick® Picture Viewer: Allows you to view on your TV
screen digital images that are stored on Memory Stick media.
❑
Component Video Inputs: Offers the best video quality for DVD
(480p, 480i), and digital set-top box (HD1080i, 720p) connections.
❑
HD Detailer™: Wideband video amplifier has a high bandwidth
frequency rating, which allows it to send more video information
to the screen, resulting in finer picture quality, especially for HD
sources.
❑
CineMotion™: Reverse 3-2 pulldown processing provides
optimal picture quality for film-based sources (media originally
shot in 24 frames-per-second format).
❑
16:9 Enhancement: Vertical Compression technology that
maximizes picture resolution when playing “anamorphic” or
“enhanced for widescreen” sources, including many DVDs.
❑
Parental Control: V-Chip technology allows parents to block
unsuitable programming from younger viewers.
❑
Digital Visual Interface (DVI): Can accommodate a copyprotected digital connection (HDCP*) to other devices (such as
digital set-top boxes) that have compatible interfaces. The DVIHDTV input terminal is compliant with the EIA-861 standard
and is not intended for use with personal computers.

Introducing
Twin View™: Using the Multi-Image Driver (MIDX), Twin View
allows you to watch two programs side by side, with the ability
to zoom in one picture. You can watch pictures from two different
sources (1080i, 720p, 480p, and 480i) simultaneously. (Only the
left Twin View window can display 1080i, 720p, and 480p
sources.)

16:9 aspect ratio
Component video is sent through three cables: two color shade (chrominance) signals and one
brightness (luminance) signal. Component video achieves greater color accuracy than
composite video or S VIDEO by splitting chrominance into two separate portions.
Composite video is sent through a single cable. Composite video combines the color shade
(chrominance) and brightness (luminance) information into one video signal.
A process that demagnetizes the metal components in the TV monitor, which eliminates image
distortion that can result from magnetic charges acquired by the TV’s components. Your TV
degausses automatically when it is turned on.
A new technology for transmitting and receiving broadcast television signals. DTV provides
clearer resolution and improved sound quality over analog television.

If you are using a cable box to unscramble all channels (as shown on
page 20), you cannot use the Twin View feature. This is because the cable
box can unscramble only one channel at a time. But if you need the cable
box to unscramble only some (usually premium) channels, you can use
Twin View for unscrambled channels if you connect both a cable and cable
box, as shown on page 18.
You can use Twin View to view a signal from a different source that is
connected to the TV's A/V jacks (such as a VCR or DVD player) in the
second window by pressing the TV/VIDEO button while in Twin View.
Sources connected to the AUX, VIDEO 5, VIDEO 6, and VIDEO 7 inputs
display in the left Twin View window, but not the right.
Be sure the Twin View window is set to a video input or channel that has a
signal airing.
You might be tuned to a video input with nothing connected to it. Try
cycling through the video inputs by pressing the TV/VIDEO button.
If you connected equipment to the TV’s AUX jack, it will display in the left
Twin View window, but not the right.
Try cycling through the video inputs by pressing the TV/VIDEO button.
Check that the Video Label option is not set to Skip. (See the Setup Menu on
page 75.)
Both Twin View windows might be set to the same channel. Try changing
channels in either window.

Make sure the image is supported by the TV (see pages 53-54).
Make sure the Memory Stick is inserted properly (see page 55).
Memory Stick functions are not available while using Twin View, Freeze or
Favorite Channel functions.
This indicates that the image does not support a thumbnail view. Selecting
the icon, however, displays the full-size image on the screen. It could also
indicate that both the thumbnail and full-size images are corrupted or not
supported.
Be sure the LOCK switch on the Memory Stick is set to off.
If a blank square appears instead of the thumbnail image, this indicates
that the image does not support a thumbnail view and cannot be rotated.
There is no audio available while using Memory Stick.

The batteries could be weak. Replace the batteries.
Check the orientation of the batteries.
Press the TV FUNCTION button. You may have inadvertently pressed the
SAT/CABLE FUNCTION button, which changes the remote control to SAT or
CABLE mode.
Make sure the TV’s power cord is connected securely to the wall outlet.
Locate the TV at least 3-4 feet away from fluorescent lights.
If you are using the TV to change channels, first press the TV FUNCTION
button.
If you are using another device to change channels, be sure you have not
inadvertently switched your TV from the channel 3 or 4 setting. Use the
Channel Fix option to “fix” the channel based on the hookup you used (see
page 68).
If you are using another device to change channels, be sure to press the
FUNCTION button for that device. For example, if you are using your cable box
to change channels, be sure to press the SAT/CABLE FUNCTION button.
If you replaced the batteries to the remote recently, the code numbers for
the video equipment may need to be reset.
There may be more than one code for the equipment that you are
attempting to operate.
There is a possibility that some non-Sony equipment cannot be operated by
your Sony TV remote.You may need to use the equipment’s original
remote control.

need service. Call your local Sony Service Center.
Make sure the power cord is plugged in.
Press the POWER button on the front of the TV.
Press the TV/VIDEO button to cycle through the connected video sources.
Try another channel; it could be station trouble.
Adjust the Picture option in the Video Menu (see page 64).
Adjust the Brightness option in the Video Menu (see page 64).
Check the antenna/cable connections.
Adjust the Color option in the Video Menu (see page 64).
Check the antenna/cable connections.
Try another channel; it could be station trouble.
Press ANT to change the input mode (see page 40).
Adjust the antenna.
Move the TV away from noise sources such as cars, neon signs, or hairdryers.
Using a highly directional outdoor antenna or a cable may solve the
problem.
You have selected a text option in the Setup Menu and no text is available.
(See page 74 to reset Setup selections.) To turn off this feature, set the
Caption Vision option to Off. If you were trying to select closed captioning,
select CC1 instead of TEXT 1-4.
If the Auto setting does not automatically detect the 16:9 signal from your
DVD player, select On to manually turn on the 16:9 Enhanced feature. For

Increase the volume of the cable box using the cable box’s remote control.
Then press TV FUNCTION and adjust the TV’s volume.
The TV’s audio might be set to Auto SAP or Mono, when it might be better set
to Stereo. In the Audio Menu (see page 66), set the MTS setting to Stereo. If
already set to Stereo, switch to Mono (which may reduce background noise
during weak stereo broadcasts).
If the Speaker option is set to Off and the Audio Out option is set to Fixed (in
order to output the sound to your audio system) use your audio receiver to
adjust the sound (see page 66). Or, to use the TV remote control, set the
Audio Out option to Variable.
To turn on the TV speakers, set the Speaker option to On (see page 66).

If a menu option appears in gray, this indicates that the TV is in a state in
which the menu option is not available.
In the password screen (see page 70), enter the following master password:
4357. The master password clears your previous password; it cannot be
used to temporarily unblock channels.
This is a normal sound that results from the TV automatically degaussing
each time it is turned on.
The STAND BY LED (see page 11) blinks when the TV is turned on, then
shuts off when the picture is displayed. If the LED blinks continuously, this
may indicate the TV needs service.
The TIMER LED (see page 11) indicates that the timer is set (page 73).
When the timer is set, this LED will remain lit even when the TV is turned
off.
