Thank you for purchasing this Sony BRAVIA® high-definition television. The quality of the image you
see on your BRAVlA TV is only as good as the quality of the signal it receives. To experience the
stunning detail of your new BRAVIA TV, you need access to HD programming. Your BRAVlA TV
can receive and display HD programming from:
•
•
•
•
Over-the-air broadcasting via HD-quality antenna
HD cable subscription
HD satellite subscription
Blu-ray Disc TM player or other HD compatible external equipment
Contact your cable or satellite provider for information on upgrading to HD programming.

The Four Steps to a Full HD Experience:
Set, Sound,
Source,
and Setup
Along with your BRAVIA TV set, a complete HD system requires an HD sound system, a
source of HD programming and proper setup connections. This manual explains basic setup
connections (see page 12). The Quick Setup Guide, enclosed separately, illustrates how to
connect other optional equipment.
Picture
Quality and Aspect
Ratio
You can enjoy crisp, clear images, smooth movement and high-impact visuals from 1080 HD
signals. When you compare a high-definition signal to a standard analog signal, you will notice
a big difference.
High-definition and standard-definition signals are transmitted with different aspect ratios (the
width-to-height ratio of the image). HDTV uses a wider screen than conventional standarddefinition TV.
16:9 (high-definition)
source
Most HDTV signals use a wide screen aspect ratio
of 16:9. The 16:9 fills your BRAVIA screen,
maintaining a crisp, clear, vivid picture.
4:3 (standard-definition)
source
Most standard-definition signals use a boxy 4:3
aspect ratio. When a 4:3 image is displayed on an
HDTV, you will see black bars on the sides. The
picture quality may not be as sharp as with HD
sources.
• You can use the Wide Mode function of the TV to adjust the 4:3 image to fit the entire screen (see pages 22, 35
and 36).

Make sure that your TV has adequate air
circulation. Allow enough space around the TV as
shown below. Avoid operating the TV at
temperatures below 41 °F (5 °C).
• When moving the TV from a cold area to a
warm area, a sudden room temperature change
may cause the TV's picture to blur or show
poor color due to moisture condensation.
Should this occur, please wait a few hours to
allow the moisture to evaporate before
powering on the TV.

• Content and signal quality are regulated by the signal provider. Many HD
channels and content are actually upscaled versions of standard-definition
broadcasts.
The picture is affected by the quality of the signal received, which
varies between channel and program.
• Confirm the picture quality by selecting Signal Diagnostics
in the Product
Support
settings (page 31). Then select Sample
Image (or Additional
Information first). An HD image will display on the screen to confirm routine
panel operation. If your normal picture quality is worse than this sample image,
it is most likely due to the signal provided by the broadcaster.

• Keep the antenna cable away from other connecting cords.
• To avoid TV interference, make sure to use an undamaged antenna cable.
Blurry picture / Poor color
• Transporting the TV from a cold to a warm location or a sudden change in room
temperature may cause moisture condensation, resulting in a blurry picture or
poor color. Turn off your TV and wait a few hours before powering on again.

• Check the volume control.
• Press MUTING or VOL + so that "Muting" disappears from the screen (page 20).
• Set Speakers to TV Speakers in the Sound settings (see page 34). If it is
set to Audio System, sound is not output from the TV's speakers regardless of
the TV's volume control.
• When using HDMI input with Super Audio CD or DVD-Audio, DIGITAL OUT
(Optical) may not provide an audio signal.
• When tuned to a digital channel with Alternate Audio, the broadcaster may
not be broadcasting your preferred Alternate Audio language. Press
OPTIONS, highlight and select Alternate Audio, and change the Alternate

• Only one A/V receiver may be used with the BRAVIA Sync and Control for
HDMI functions at one time (see page 41 ).
PC Input
No picture / No signal
• Confirm the PC is correctly connected to the TV with either the PC IN (with an
HDI5 cable) or with the HDMI IN.
• Ensure the output signal from the PC is one of the formats listed on page 14.
• Turn the PC off. Confirm the PC connection and restart the PC. Plug-and-play
will auto-detect the TV and correctly set up PC timing.

Wide Mode changes
automatically
• The current Wide Mode setting is automatically replaced with the 4:3
Default setting when you change the channel or video input, if 4:3 Default in
the Screen settings is set to other than Off. If you want to lock in Wide Mode
selected with WIDE on the remote control, set 4:3 Default to Off in the
Screen settings (see page 35).
• Check the Auto Wide option in the Screen settings (see page 35).
Suddenly the picture gets
smaller
• The picture gets smaller during the commercials due to the method in which the
provider broadcasts their content. When HD content channels switch to SD
content (commercials), the picture may be small with a black border.
• Auto Wide will not expand the picture during these content changes since the
content information is regulated by the channel signal provider. You can manually
change the Wide Mode if you prefer (see page 22). This setting will remain in effect
until you change the channel or input or manually change the Wide Mode again.
"Black box" on screen
• You have selected a text option and no text is available (see page 38). To turn off
this feature, set the CC Display option to Oil. If you were trying to select
closed captioning, select CC1 instead of Text1-4.
Black bands appear at the
edges of the screen
• Some wide screen programs are filmed in aspect ratios that are greater than 16:9
(this is especially common with theatrical releases). Your TV will show these
details,

program provider).
• Programs in 4:3 aspect ratio will have bands on left and right sides of the
screen.
• Programs broadcast in HD formats (720p and 1080i) with 4:3 content will
commonly have black bands on the left and right sides of the screen which are
added by the broadcaster (see image on left).
• Auto Wide will not expand the picture when the black bands on the sides of
the screen are added by the broadcaster. You can manually change the Wide
Mode to Wide Zoom, H Stretch or Zoom to fill the screen, which will
remain in affect until you change the channel or input or manually change the
Wide Mode again.
Certain programs on DVD or
other digital sources display a
loss of detail, especially during
fast-motion or dark scenes
• This is due to the digital compression of the source content used by certain
digital broadcasts and DVDs which may cause your TV's screen to display less
detail than usual, or cause artifacts (small blocks or dots, pixelations) to appear
on your screen. These signal compressions are more visible and are dependent
on the clarity and resolution of the TV.
Remote control does not
operate
• To determine if the problem is with the remote control or not, press a button on
the TV.
• Check the polarity of the batteries or replace the batteries.
• Poiut the remote coutrol at the remote coutrol seusor located at the frout of the TV.
• Keep the remote control sensor area clear from obstacles.
• Fluorescent lamps can interfere with your remote control operation; try turning
off the fluorescent lamps.
Some digital cable channels
are not being displayed
• Certain cable companies have limitations on the broadcast of digital cable
channels. Check with your cable company for more information.
• The digital cable channel may be set to Hidden in the Show/Hide Channels
setting (see page 37).
Lost password
• Select the Password settings on the Parental Lock settings, then enter the
following master password: 4357. This password clears your previous password
and allows you to enter a new password (see page 38).
How to reset the TV to factory
settings

on the TV. (The TV will turn itself off, then back on again.) Release 4".
WARNING: The reset will clear all of your customized settings including the
