Getting Started
Setting Up Your TV
Some TV models are packaged with a detached Table-Top Stand so you can mount
your TV to a wall right away. If you are not mounting the TV to a wall, you will need to
attach the Table-Top Stand. You will need a Phillips screwdriver (not supplied) and the
supplied screws to complete the task. Look for the supplied Table-Top Stand instruction
leaflet.
Be sure to consider the following while setting up your TV:
Disconnect all cables when carrying the TV.
Carry the TV with the adequate number of people; larger size TVs require two or more people.
Correct hand placement while carrying the TV is very important for safety and to avoid damage.
Do not put stress on the LCD panel or the frame around the screen.
•
•
•
•
Ensure your TV has adequate ventilation, see page 15.
For best picture quality, do not expose the screen to direct illumination or sunlight.
Avoid installing the TV in a room with reflective wall and floor materials.
Avoid moving the TV from a cold area to a warm area. Sudden room temperature changes may
cause moisture condensation. This may cause the TV to show poor picture and/or poor color.
Should this occur, allow moisture to evaporate completely before powering the TV on.

injury or even death.
Preventing the TV from Toppling
❑
❑
❑
❑
Secure the TV to a wall and/or stand.
Do not allow children to play or climb on furniture and TV sets.
Avoid placing or hanging items on the TV.
Never install the TV on:
• slippery, unstable and/or uneven surfaces.
• furniture that can easily be used as steps, such as a chest of drawers.
Install the TV where it cannot be pulled, pushed, or knocked over.
Route all AC power cords and connecting cables so that they are not accessible to curious
children.
❑
❑
Recommended Measures to Secure the TV
Consider the following measures when securing your TV to a TV stand (not supplied).
1 Secure the stand for the TV.
Make sure the TV stand can adequately support the weight of the TV. Use two angle
braces (not supplied) to secure the stand.
For each angle brace use the appropriate hardware to:
• attach one side of the angle brace to the wall stud.
• attach the other side to the TV stand.

2 Secure the TV to the stand.
Use the optional hardware listed below (not supplied):
• M4 machine screw (screwed into the screw hole of the TV).
• A screw or similar (attach it to the TV stand).
• Rope or chain (strong enough to support the weight of the TV). Make sure that there is
no excess slack in the rope or chain.
An alternative way to secure the TV is with an optional Sony Support Belt Kit.
The Sony Support Belt Kit is available as an optional accessory, depending on your
TV model.

Using a Wall-Mount Bracket
Your TV can be mounted on a wall using a Wall-Mount Bracket (not supplied) out of the
box as packaged. If the Table-Top Stand is attached to the TV, the TV may require
detaching the Table-Top Stand.
Prepare the TV for the Wall-Mount Bracket before making cable connections.
Sony does not supply the Wall-Mount Bracket or the installing service. For product
protection and safety reasons, Sony strongly recommends that installing of your
TV on the wall be performed by qualified professionals. Do not attempt to install it
yourself.
• Follow the instruction guide provided with the Wall-Mount Bracket for your model.
Sufficient expertise is required in installing this TV, especially to determine the strength
of the wall for withstanding the TV’s weight.
• The length of the screw for Wall-Mount Bracket differs depending on the mounting
hook thickness. Please see below illustration.

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
40).
• Check the Auto Wide option in the Screen settings (see page
40).
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 29). This setting will remain in
effect until you change the channel or input or manually change
the Wide Mode again.

Black bands appear at
the edges of the screen
Explanation/Solution
• 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/Blu-ray (or contact your
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).
• Some cable and satellite set-top boxes can also control the size
of the picture. If you are using a set-top box, refer to the
manufacturer of the set-top box for more information.
• 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, 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.
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.
• Point the remote control at the remote control sensor located at
the front 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 42).
Some photo, music, or
video files are not

just folders. Files or folders are populated based on their time
stamps. Photo, music, video files or folders exceeding the limit
will not be displayed.
