Dust in the rear cover area may cause a problem with the cooling system of the TV set. s Clean the cabinet of the TV with a dry soft cloth. To remove dust from the screen, wipe it gently with a soft cloth. Stubborn stains may be removed with a cloth slightly dampened with solution of mild soap and warm water. Never use strong solvents such as thinner or benzine for cleaning. If the picture becomes dark after using the TV for a long period of time, it may be necessary to clean the inside of the TV. Consult qualified service personnel. s Unplug the AC power cord when cleaning this unit. Cleaning this unit with a plugged AC power cord may result in electric shock. 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. s 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 9. s When installing your TV against a wall, keep it at least 4 inches (10 cm) away from the wall. On Contamination on the Screen Surface The screen surface has a special coating to reduce reflections. To prevent screen damage, clean the screen as follows: s Clean the screen with a soft cloth. s To remove hard contamination, use a cloth moistened with a solution of mild detergent and water. Do not spray cleaning solution directly onto the TV. It should only be sprayed to moisten the cleaning cloth. s Do not use any type of abrasive pad, alkaline cleaner, acid cleaner, scouring powder, chemical cloth, or solvent such as alcohol, benzene or thinner, as these may scratch the screen’s coating. Projection Lamp s Your TV uses a projection lamp as its light source. It is time to replace the lamp with a new one (not supplied) 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. s 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 43.) s When the lamp eventually burns out, you may hear a noticeable pop sound. This is normal and is inherent in this type of lamp. Cooling Fans This TV uses cooling fans. You may hear the noise of fans 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. Service Damage Requiring Service Disposal of Used Batteries Do not attempt to service the set by yourself since opening the cabinet may expose you to dangerous voltage or other hazards. To preserve our environment, dispose of used batteries according to your local laws or regulations. Unplug the set from the wall outlet and refer servicing to qualified service personnel. 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 43. For Customers in the United States Lamp in this product contains mercury.

The quality of the image you see on your BRAVIA 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 BRAVIA 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™ player or other external equipment Contact your cable or satellite provider for information on upgrading to HD programming. To learn more about HDTV, visit: http://www.sony.com/HDTV The Four Steps to 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 13). 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. The 1080 HD signals provide more than twice the vertical resolution of the standard TV signal. 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 widescreen aspect ratio of 16:9. 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 23, 35 and 36). 6 TV Home Menu: XMB™ (XrossMediaBar) The XMB™ is a menu of BRAVIA features and input sources displayed on the TV screen. The XMB™ is an easy way to select programming and adjust settings on your BRAVIA TV. Press the HOME button on your remote control to access the XMB™. Product Support Clock/Timers Media Category Bar Settings Sound Screen Video Options TV Category Object Bar From the horizontal Media Category Bar you can control: • Settings: timer, picture, sound, screen and other options (see page 32 for customization options). • TV Channels: available channels are displayed on the vertical Category Object Bar. • External Inputs: cable, satellite, VCR, DVD players or other inputs can also be selected from the Category Object Bar for the External Inputs. 7 Getting Started 1.

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 8,000 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. How to Replace the Lamp 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. 3 Take the new lamp out of the box. Do not touch the glass portion of the new lamp.
