Additional Information
Precautions
On safety
• Should any solid object or liquid fall into
the system, unplug the system and have
it checked by qualified personnel before
operating it any further.
• Do not climb on the system, as you may
fall down and injure yourself, or system
damage may result.
• Do not place anything other than a TV on
the system.
On power sources
• Before operating the system, check that
the operating voltage is identical to your
local power supply. The operating voltage
is indicated on the nameplate at the rear
of the system.
• If you are not going to use the system for
a long time, be sure to disconnect the
system from the wall outlet (mains). To
disconnect the AC power cord (mains
lead), grasp the plug itself; never pull the
cord.
• One blade of the plug is wider than the
other for the purpose of safety and will fit
into the wall outlet (mains) only one way.
If you are unable to insert the plug fully
into the outlet, contact your dealer.
• AC power cord (mains lead) must be
changed only at a qualified service shop.
On heat buildup
Although the system heats up during
operation, this is not a malfunction.
If you continuously use this system at high
volume, the system temperature at the
rear and bottom rises considerably. To
avoid burning yourself, do not touch the
system.
On placement
• Leave the front of the system open.
14GB
• Do not place the system on top of a
device that radiates heat.
• Place the system in a location with
adequate ventilation to prevent heat
buildup and prolong the life of the
system.
• Do not place the system near heat
sources or in a place subject to direct
sunlight, excessive dust, or mechanical
shock.
• Do not place anything at the rear of the
system that might block the ventilation
holes and cause malfunctions.
• If the system is being used in combination
with a TV, VCR, or tape deck, noise may
result and picture quality may suffer. In
such a case, place the system away from
the TV, VCR, or tape deck.
• Use caution when placing the system on a
surface that has been specially treated
(with wax, oil, polish, etc.), as staining or
discoloration of the surface may result.
• Take care to avoid any possible injury
from the corners of the system.
• Install the system so as not to harm the
speaker on the bottom of this system.

On BLUETOOTH
communication
• BLUETOOTH devices should be used
within approximately 10 meters
(unobstructed distance) of each other.
The effective communication range
may become shorter under the
following conditions.
– When a person, metal object, wall or
other obstruction is between the
devices with a BLUETOOTH
connection
– Locations where a wireless LAN is
installed
– Around microwave ovens that are in
use
– Locations where other
electromagnetic waves occur
• BLUETOOTH devices and wireless LAN
(IEEE 802.11b/g) use the same
frequency band (2.4 GHz). When using
your BLUETOOTH device near a device
with wireless LAN capability,
electromagnetic interference may
occur. This could result in lower data
transfer rates, noise, or inability to
connect. If this happens, try the
following remedies:
– Use this system at least 10 meters
away from the wireless LAN device.
– Turn off the power to the wireless
LAN device when using your
BLUETOOTH device within 10 meters.
– Install this system and BLUETOOTH
device as closer to each other as
possible.
• The radio waves broadcast by this
system may interfere with the
operation of some medical devices.
Since this interference may result in
malfunction, always turn off the power
on this system and BLUETOOTH device
in the following locations:
24GB
– In hospitals, on trains, in airplanes, at
gas stations, and any place where
flammable gasses may be present
– Near automatic doors or fire alarms
• This system supports security
functions that comply with the
BLUETOOTH specification to ensure
secure connection during
communication using BLUETOOTH
technology. However, this security
may be insufficient depending on the
setting contents and other factors, so
always be careful when performing
communication using BLUETOOTH
technology.
• Sony cannot be held liable in any way
for damages or other loss resulting
from information leaks during
communication using BLUETOOTH
technology.
• BLUETOOTH communication is not
necessarily guaranteed with all
BLUETOOTH devices that have the
same profile as this system.
• BLUETOOTH devices connected with
this system must comply with the
BLUETOOTH specification prescribed
by the Bluetooth SIG, Inc., and must be
certified to comply. However, even
when a device complies with the
BLUETOOTH specification, there may
be cases where the characteristics or
specifications of the BLUETOOTH
device make it impossible to connect,
or may result in different control
methods, display or operation.
• Noise may occur or the audio may cut
off depending on the BLUETOOTH
device connected with this system,
the communications environment, or
surrounding conditions.
If you have any questions or problems
concerning your system, please consult
your nearest Sony dealer.
