on the screen. This is a structural property of the panel and is not a defect.
Installation
s
s
s
If direct sunlight or other strong illumination shines on the screen,
part of the screen may appear white due to reflections from behind
the screen. This is a structural property of the TV.
Do not expose the screen to direct illumination or direct sunlight.
The picture quality may be affected by your viewing position. For
the best picture quality, install your TV according to
“Recommended Viewing Area” on page 15.

Projection Lamp
s
s
s
Your TV uses a projection lamp as its light source. It is time to
replace the lamp with a new one when:
• the message, “Projection lamp is nearing end of life. Please
replace the lamp.” appeared on the screen,
• the lamp replacement indicator on the front panel blinks in red,
• screen images become dark,
• no image appears on the display after prolonged use.
In rare instances, the bulb may pop inside the lamp unit, but the lamp
unit is designed to contain all of broken glass pieces inside the lamp
unit. (See “Replacing the Lamp” on page 66.)
When the lamp eventually burns out, you may hear a noticeable pop
sound. This is normal and is inherent in this type of lamp.
Damage Requiring Service
Cooling Fan
Do not attempt to service the set by yourself since opening
the cabinet may expose you to dangerous voltage or other
hazards.
This TV uses a cooling fan. You may hear the noise of fan running,
depending on the placement of your TV. The noise may be more noticeable
during the night or when the background noise level is low.
Unplug the set from the wall outlet and refer servicing to
qualified service personnel.
Objects and Ventilation Holes
Replacement Parts
When replacement parts are required, be sure the service technician
certifies in writing that he has used replacement parts specified by the
manufacturer that have the same characteristics as the original parts.
Unauthorized substitutions may result in fire, electric shock or other
hazards.
See “Replacing the Lamp” on page 66.

delivers high-level resolution, greater contrast ratio, faster response
speed and film-like reproduction compared to other conventional
devices.
❑ WEGA Engine: Delivers superb picture quality from any video source
by minimizing the signal deterioration caused by digital-to-analog
conversion and stabilizing the signal processing. This engine features
unique Sony technology, including:
• DRC® (Digital Reality Creation)-MF V2.5: Unlike conventional

NTSC waveform with the near-HD equivalent by digital mapping
processing. The DRC Palette option lets you customize the level
of detail (Reality) and smoothness (Clarity).
❑ Integrated HDTV: You can watch digital televised programs and enjoy
the improved audio/video quality offered by these programs.
❑ Advanced Iris: Automatically detects the brightness of the screen. By
adjusting the iris shutter, this feature can provide you with the best
contrast and brightness from one scene to the next for your TV viewing.
❑ Wide Screen Mode: Allows you to watch 4:3 normal broadcasts in
wide screen mode (16:9 aspect ratio).
❑ CineMotion®: Using the reverse 3-2 pull down technology, the
CineMotion feature provides smoother picture movement when playing
back movies or other video sources on film.
❑ Twin View®: Twin View allows you to watch two programs side by
side with the ability to zoom in on one picture and listen to the program
in the selected window. You can watch pictures from two different
sources (480i) simultaneously.
❑ MENU: Sony’s unique user interface provides easy access to the
popular and useful TV functions such as external inputs (switch among
connected equipment), favorite channels (create a list of your favorite
channels), TV Guide On ScreenTM system, cable channels (view cable
channels), antenna channels (view antenna channels) or to customize
your TV settings.

Getting Started
❑
CableCARD™ slot: Provides cable subscribers with access to digitally
encrypted cable channels — without the need for a set-top box — that
will enable you to receive not only standard definition but also high
definition television. The CableCARD device, which is provided by
your cable TV company, is inserted into the TV’s rear panel
CableCARD slot. After the service is activated with your cable TV
company, the card replaces the need for a separate set-top box. (Check
with your cable TV company about CableCARD service details,
limitations, pricing, and availability. For more information about
CableCARD device in this manual, see page 20.)
Component Video Inputs: Offers a high-quality video for DVD (480p,
480i) and digital set-top box (1080i, 720p, 480p, 480i) connections.
S VIDEO Inputs: Provides high-quality image from connected
equipment.
Favorite Channels: Using the MENU function, you can view and
select from a list of up to 16 favorite channels without leaving the
current channel.

up to eight days of program listings, as well as program search and
reminder features.
Steady Sound®: Equalizes volume levels so there is consistent output
between programs and commercials.
PC Input: Allows you to connect your PC and display the PC screen on
your TV.
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface): Provides an
uncompressed, all-digital audio/video interface between this TV and any
HDMI-equipped audio/video component, such as a set-top box, Blu-ray
Disc™ Player (BD), DVD player, and A/V receiver. HDMI supports
enhanced, or high-definition video, plus two-channel digital audio.
Getting Started
On moisture condensation
❑
Screen
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 color. 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 has
evaporated, the picture will return to normal.
To minimize reflection, the screen surface has a special coating.
Inappropriate cleaning methods could damage the screen surface. Special
care is required.
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
To replace the lamp,
see page 66.
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 (1 minute or less) before
the picture appears.
❑ When the projection lamp wears out, the screen goes dark. Replace the
lamp with the supplied Sony XL-5300 lamp.
❑ After the lamp is replaced, set the Lamp Replacement option in the
Setup settings (see page 62).
✍
✍
10
Until you set the Lamp Replacement option, a message announcing
that the lamp is at the end of its life will appear every time you turn on
your TV.
The light emitted from the lamp is quite bright when your TV is in use.
To avoid eye discomfort or injury, do not look into the light housing when
the power is on.

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.

Using the CableCARD Device
The CableCARD device provides cable subscribers with access to digitally
encrypted cable channels — without the need for a set-top box — that will
enable you to receive not only standard definition but also high definition
television. The CableCARD device, which is provided by your cable TV
company, is inserted into the TV’s rear panel CableCARD slot. After the
service is activated with your cable TV company, the card replaces the need
for a separate set-top box.
About Using
the CableCARD
Device
If you are planning to use a separate cable box for digital cable TV services,
you may be able to receive programming using this TV with the
CableCARD device instead — except in the following circumstances:
❑ Your cable TV company does not provide CableCARD service in your
viewing area.
❑ You want to access your cable TV company’s interactive or advanced
features (such as video-on-demand or, in some cases, pay-per-view). At
this time, these services require a bidirectional link, which are only
available through the use of a separate set-top box. CableCARD device
is currently a unidirectional device only, and cannot provide these
advanced services.
Check with your cable TV company for CableCARD service details,
limitations, pricing, and availability, all of which are determined by your
cable TV company — not Sony.
Activating
CableCARD Service
Before you can use CableCARD service, you need to insert the CableCARD
device (supplied by your cable TV company) and activate the service, as
described below:
1 Insert the CableCARD device into the CableCARD slot.
✍
CAUTION: When inserting the CableCARD device, the top side of the
card should face front. Inserting the CableCARD incorrectly may result
in permanent damage to the card and the TV.
2 Gently push the card into the slot until it locks into place.
20
Getting Started
3 The CableCARD device setup screen is automatically displayed. This
screen includes information your cable TV company will request before
they can activate your service.
4 Follow the displayed instructions: Phone your cable TV company. A
representative will guide you through the activation process.
5 After your CableCARD device is activated, your cable TV company
will download the service information, including the channel list, to the
CableCARD device. After the CableCARD device has acquired
channels from your cable TV company, the TV tunes to the lowest
available channel.
Removing the
CableCARD Device
In the event you want to cancel your service, contact your cable TV
company.
✍
Once the CableCARD device is removed, your TV will no longer decrypt
digital cable TV programming services that require CableCARD.
1 Push the eject button on the CableCARD slot to release the card.
Eject button
2 Pull the CableCARD device straight out of the slot to remove it.
To install a different CableCARD device, follow the instructions in
“Activating CableCARD Service” on page 20.

Overview of the TV Guide On Screen System
Your TV features the TV Guide On Screen™ system that provides an 8-day rolling list of TV programming.
Use the Guide to find the shows you want to watch. The Guide allows you to search for shows by a variety
of program categories, title, actor, director and key word, as well as set reminders for programs you want to
watch. The Guide does not require a phone connection, and it’s free!
The on-screen interactive TV program guide provides the following main services.
❑
LISTINGS: Shows the available program listings for the next eight days including today. Provides a
description of programs selected.
SEARCH: Allows you to find shows by keyword or by the following categories: alphabetically, HDTV,
movies, sports, children, educational, news, variety, series.
SCHEDULE: Allows you to review, edit, or delete program reminders that you set previously.
SETUP: Allows you to make changes in the system settings, channel display and default options after
initial Guide setup is completed.

For the TV Guide On Screen system to function properly, the TV must be turned off when not in use
(such as when you are out of the house or overnight).
The initial Guide setup must be completed before the TV Guide On Screen system is viewed (see
page 26 for more information).

accuracy or availability of the program schedule information or other data in the TV Guide On Screen
system and cannot guarantee service availability in your area. In no event shall Gemstar-TV Guide
International, Inc. and/or its related affiliates be liable for any damages in connection with the
accuracy or availability of the program schedule information or other data in the TV Guide On Screen
system.
Although the TV Guide On Screen system offers rating information, the TV Parental Lock features use

Replacing the Lamp
The projection lamp, like all lamps, will eventually lose brightness and
functionality, which affects the overall performance of your TV. How long
the lamp maintains its brightness will vary depending upon your usage and
environmental conditions. To maintain the quality of your viewing
experience, Sony recommends that you replace the lamp (1) after
approximately 4,000 hours of use; (2) when the screen becomes dark or the
color looks unusual; (3) when the LAMP LED on the front of the TV blinks;
or (4) when the lamp replacement message appears on the TV screen.
WARNING
Electric appliances can cause fire or high temperature, resulting in
injury or death. Be sure to follow the instructions below.
How to Replace the
Lamp
❑
Use the supplied Sony XL-5300 lamp for replacement. Use of any other
lamp may damage the TV.
❑
Do not remove the lamp for any purpose other than replacement. Doing
so may cause injury or fire.
❑
Do not put flammable materials and metal objects inside the lamp
receptacle of the TV after removing the lamp. Doing so may cause fire
or electrical shock. Do not touch the lamp receptacle once the lamp has
been removed.
❑
When the lamp eventually burns out, you may hear a noticeable pop
sound. This is normal and it is inherent to this type of lamp.
❑
In rare instances, the bulb may pop inside the lamp unit, but the lamp
unit is designed to contain all of the broken glass pieces inside the lamp
unit.
❑
This TV’s lamp contains mercury and should be disposed of properly.
Consult your local authorities regarding safe disposal. The material
contained in this lamp are similar to those of a fluorescent lamp, so you
should dispose of it in the same way.
1 Turn off the power on the main unit. Wait several minutes, then unplug
the power cord.
(The cooling fan will continue to operate for about two minutes after
turning the power off.)
2 Wait at least 30 minutes after unplugging the power cord to allow the
lamp to cool down before replacing it. To avoid being burned, do not
touch the lamp receptacle once the lamp has been removed.
66
Other Information
3 Take the new lamp out of the box.
Do not touch the glass portion of the new lamp.
✍
✍
Do not shake the lamp. Vibration can damage the lamp or shorten
its life.
Avoid touching the front glass of a new lamp or the glass of the
lamp receptacle. This may reduce picture quality or lamp life.
4 Remove the outside lamp cover.
Release the clamp as shown in the illustration below.
Turn the screw counterclockwise, and then turn the knob to the left until
the marks on the lid and the case line up. Remove the door.
6 Pull out the lamp.
Hold the indents on the top and bottom of the lamp, as shown in the
illustration, and pull the lamp straight out.
Hold this part of the lamp

5 Remove the lamp door.
Other Information
✍
✍
✍
Do not touch the inside of the lamp compartment.
The lamp is very hot immediately after use. Never touch the glass
portion of the lamp or the surrounding parts.
After the used lamp has cooled, place it into the empty box of the
replacement lamp. Never put the used lamp into a plastic bag.
7 Put the new lamp into its place.
Make sure the lamp is securely mounted into the compartment. Failure to
do so may cause a fire or the screen to go dark.
✍
✍
The lamp compartment is tilted, as shown in the following
illustration.
If the lamp is not securely reattached, the self-diagnostic function
may be triggered and the POWER LED blinks three times (see
page 37).
8 Reattach the lamp door.
To secure the door, turn the knob to the right while pushing the door in,
until the marks on the lid and the case line up. Then, turn the screw
clockwise to tighten the door.
68
Other Information
9 Put the outside lamp cover back in its place.
Replace the cover, inserting it from the left side. Press the clamp on the
right side to secure the cover.
10 Turn on the TV and set the Lamp Replacement option in the Setup
✍
✍
✍
Until you set the Lamp Replacement option, a message
announcing that the lamp is at the end of its life will appear every
time you turn on the TV.
Consult your Sony dealer for a Sony XL-5300 replacement lamp.
Take great care when replacing the lamp or plugging in/unplugging
the connecting cords. Rough handling may cause the TV to fall,
damaging the TV, the TV stand and the floor.
The used lamp
For customers in the United States:

❏
It can take up to 24 hours for the TV Guide On Screen system to collect channel
lineup and program listings information.
The Guide collects data when the TV is turned off (via the POWER button on the
remote control or front panel of the TV), so the TV must be turned off for an
extended period of time (e.g. midnight to 6 AM) to collect the lineup and listings
information. The Guide information is sent multiple times within a day, so that
normal TV watching does not interfere with the collection of programming
listings.
Please check your Cable signal feed is connected to the Cable input on the TV,
and likewise, if an Antenna is used to collect over-the-air broadcasts, please make
sure the Antenna signal feed is connected to the Antenna input on the TV. The
Cable and Antenna feeds must be connected directly to the TV. Cable set-top
boxes, for example, may not pass the signal required for the Guide to collect
lineup and listings data.
Verify the setup information is correct, per Change system settings on page 46.
It takes 6 days after initial setup to acquire for all 8 days represented in the Guide.
Thereafter, Guide data is updated daily. The TV must be turned off (via the
POWER button on the remote control) on a daily basis in order for the listings
information to be continually updated.
If you can see the channel lineup, the Guide is collecting data, but additional time
is required to collect the program listings information.
Turn the TV off using the POWER button on the remote control. New program
listings and the current time should become available within 24 hours. Note that
the current time information often appears before the program listings.
Correct the channel numbers using the Change channel display under SETUP
service (see page 46).
Check the SCHEDULE menu and make sure that the program is listed.
Highlight the program under LISTINGS and do the following.
• Press the MENU button on the remote control
• Press the v to highlight edit reminder, and press
.
• Make sure that the auto tune option reads yes.

The TV might be connected to the wrong feed. To test this, try changing the feed
when you leave the TV in standby mode (i.e. when you turn the TV off using the
POWER button on the remote control or front panel of the TV) to receive the
updated Guide data. The Guide only updates data on the feed that originally
collected the data. For example, if the Guide collected data on the “A” feed, then
you must leave the TV on the “A” feed when you put it in standby mode. If you
left the TV on the “B” feed in this example, the Guide would not be able to update
any data.
If, after trying both feeds, the Guide still does not have data, please contact Sony.

If you set the Power Saving option to On, it will enhance the black level.
After turning on the TV, you may notice a green tint or slight variation in color
and brightness in certain areas of the picture. This will last only a few minutes
(possibly longer, in cooler rooms or conditions) while circuits within the TV
continually fine tune the color during the warm-up period. This is a normal
temperature characteristic of the components and not a malfunction.
Check if the Sleep option is activated, or confirm the Duration setting of Timer
(page 61).
If the temperature is too high, the TV may also turn off after a warning message is
displayed.
Check the antenna/cable connections.
Try another channel; it could be station trouble.
Press ANT to change the input mode (see page 28).
Move the TV away from noise sources such as cars, neon signs, or hair dryers.
If using 300 ohm twin lead, move the excess lead away from the TV or try using
75 ohm coaxial cable instead.
Using a highly directional outdoor antenna or a cable may solve the problem.
You have selected a text option in the Caption Vision (CC) feature in the Setup
setting and no text is available (see pages 60 and 63). To turn off this feature, set
the Caption Vision (CC) option to Off. If you were trying to select closed
captioning, select CC1 instead of Text 1-4.
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 the Wide Mode selected
with the WIDE button, set 4:3 Default to Off in the Screen settings (page 55).
Check the Auto Wide option in the Screen settings (page 54).
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
programs with black bands at the top and bottom of the screen. For more details,
check the documentation that came with your DVD (or contact your program
provider).
The compression used by certain digital broadcasts and DVDs 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. This is due to your TV’s large screen
and ability to show very fine detail, and is normal for certain digitally recorded
programs. Adjust the Reality/Clarity in the DRC Palette setting (see page 50) to
optimize the picture while viewing these sources.

volume.
The TV’s audio might be set to Auto SAP or Mono, when it might be better set to
Stereo. In the Sound setting (see page 52), 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

temperature inside the TV when any ventilation openings are blocked.
Replace the lamp (see page 66).
The lamp door or the lamp might not be securely attached. Repeat the steps on
page 66 to ensure that they are both installed securely.
If you are connecting a VCR and digital cable box using a splitter, as described on
page 19, you must use a special bi-directional splitter that is designed to work
with your digital cable box. Contact your cable provider for details.
When the TV is in use, there is a natural rise in temperature, causing the cabinet to
expand or contract and may be accompanied by a slight creaking noise. This is not
a malfunction.
Advanced Iris applies a mechanical iris system. When Advanced Iris is set, a
natural creaking noise occurs due to the basic structure of the optical unit. The
creaking sound is an inherent nature of this system and is not a defect.
If the TV is used at high altitudes and Cooling Mode is set to High, the cooling
fan runs faster and its sound becomes louder. If the TV is not used at high
altitudes, set Cooling Mode to Normal (see page 62).
Make sure to remove dust from the ventilation slots on the rear and both sides of
the TV. In addition, make sure that there are no obstacles in front of the ventilation
slots, and keep the slots at least 4 inches (10 cm) away from the wall. If the
message still appears after the dust or obstacles are removed, the TV may need
servicing. Call your local Sony Service Center.

The TV cools down its projection lamp when the power is turned off. It takes up to
two minutes for 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 dark or bright when viewing
up close to the screen caused during the manufacturing 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 TV, image retention on this TV is not permanent. It is only a
temporary condition; see page 10.
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 off the TV screen and reflections coming behind the screen. This is a
structural property of the projection 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.
