s The LCD screen is made with high-precision technology and to
achieve a high level of performance and picture quality, this TV’s
backlight setting is set to maximize the brightness of the TV.
However, uneven brightness may be observed when the LCD TV is
viewed in a dark ambient without an input source or a blank screen.
This condition is normal and not a malfunction of the TV. Changing
the Picture mode, Backlight setting, enabling the Light Sensor, or
turning on the Power management will improve this condition.
s Do not expose the LCD screen surface to direct sunlight. Doing so
may damage the LCD panel.
s Do not push or scratch the LCD screen, or place objects on top of the
TV. The image may be uneven or the LCD panel may be damaged.
s If the TV is used in a cold place, a smear may occur in the picture or
the picture may become dark. This does not indicate a failure. These
phenomena improve as the temperature rises.
s Ghosting may occur when still pictures are displayed continuously. It
should disappear after a few moments.
Upon completion of any service or repairs to the TV,
ask the service technician to perform routine safety
checks (as specified by the manufacturer) to determine
that the TV is in safe operating condition, and to so
certify. Ask a qualified service technician to dispose of the TV.

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 Stunning 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 16). 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 wide screen aspect ratio
of 16:9. The 16:9 fills your BRAVIA screen and
maintains 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 24, 32
and 34).
