Antennas
Outdoor Antenna Grounding
If an outdoor antenna is installed, follow the precautions below. An
outdoor antenna system should not be located in the vicinity of overhead
power lines or other electric light or power circuits, or where it can come
in contact with such power lines or circuits.
WHEN INSTALLING AN OUTDOOR ANTENNA SYSTEM,
EXTREME CARE SHOULD BE TAKEN TO KEEP FROM
CONTACTING SUCH POWER LINES OR CIRCUITS AS CONTACT
WITH THEM IS ALMOST INVARIABLY FATAL.
Be sure the antenna system is grounded so as to provide some protection
against voltage surges and built-up static charges.

Cleaning
Installation
s Clean the rear cover area of the TV regularly. 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

Welcome to the World of BRAVIA™
Thank you for purchasing this Sony BRAVIA™ high-definition television. 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).

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™.

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 Indicator flashes 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:
s After turning on your TV, it may take a while
(one minute or less) before the picture
appears.
s When the projection lamp wears out, the
screen goes dark. Replace the lamp with a
new Sony XL-2500 replacement lamp (not
supplied).
s After lamp is replaced, please set the Lamp
Replacement option in the General
settings (see page 42).
“How to Replace the Lamp”, see page 43.
~
• The light emitted from the lamp is quite bright when
your TV is in use. To avoid eye discomfort or injury,

Other Information
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 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.
WARNING
Other Information
Electric appliances can cause fire or high
temperature, resulting in injury or death. Be
sure to follow the instructions below.
s Use a Sony XL-2500 replacement lamp (not
supplied) for replacement. Use of any other
lamp may damage the TV.
s Do not remove the lamp for any purpose other
than replacement. Doing so may cause injury
or fire.
s 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.
s 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.
s 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.
s 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 is similar to
those of a fluorescent lamp, so you should
dispose of it in the same way.
~
• 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.
