Some people may experience discomfort
(such as eye strain, fatigue, or nausea) while
watching 3D video images. Sony recommends
that all viewers take regular breaks while
watching 3D video images. The length and
frequency of necessary breaks will vary from
person to person. You must decide what works
best. If you experience any discomfort, you
should stop watching the 3D video images
until the discomfort ends; consult a doctor if
you believe necessary. You should also
review (i) the instruction manual and/or the
caution message of any other device used
with, or Blu-ray Disc contents played with this
product and (ii) our website
(http://esupport.sony.com/) for the latest
information. The vision of young children

x No Security
Although you can easily make settings,
anyone can intercept wireless
communication or intrude into your
wireless network, even without any
sophisticated tools. Keep in mind that there
is a risk of unauthorized access or
interception of data.
x WEP
WEP applies security to communications
to prevent outsiders from intercepting
communications or intruding into your
wireless network. WEP is a legacy security
technology that enables older devices
which do not support TKIP/AES to be
connected.

Precautions
On safety
• Should any solid object or liquid fall into
the cabinet, unplug the system and have it
checked by qualified personnel before
operating it any further.
• Do not touch the AC power cord (mains
lead) with wet hands. Doing so may cause
an electric shock.
On power sources
If you are not going to use the system for a
long time, be sure to disconnect the system
from the wall outlet. To disconnect the AC
power cord (mains lead), grasp the plug
itself; never pull the cord.
On placement
• Place the system in a location with
adequate ventilation to prevent heat
build-up in the system.
• Although the system heats up during
operation, this is not a malfunction. If you
continuously use this system at a large
volume, the cabinet temperature of the
top, side and bottom rises considerably.
To avoid burning yourself, do not touch
the cabinet.
• Do not place the system on a soft surface
(rugs, blankets, etc.) that might block the
ventilation holes.
• Do not install the system near heat
sources such as radiators, air ducts, or in
a place subject to direct sunlight,
excessive dust, mechanical vibration, or
shock.
