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 HD compatible external equipment
Contact your cable or satellite provider for information on upgrading to HD programming.

U.S.A. http://www.sony.com/HDTV
Canada http://www.sonystyle.ca/hd
The Four Steps to a 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 12). 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.
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,
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 22, 35
and 36).

TV Home Menu: XMB™ (XrossMediaBar)
The XMB™ is an easy way to access the TV settings for customizing, making adjustments,
viewing the available TV channels and selecting the connected equipment. Press the HOME
button on your remote control to display the XMB™.

Your BRAVIA TV is ENERGY STAR qualified. It meets strict energy efficiency
guidelines set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Department of
Energy. ENERGY STAR is a joint program of these government agencies,
designed to promote energy efficient products and practices.
• When the TV is initially set up, it is designed to meet ENERGY STAR requirements.
• Changes to certain features, settings, and functionalities of this TV (i.e. TV Guide,
Picture/Sound, Light Sensor, Power Savings) can slightly change the power
consumption.
Depending upon such changed settings, the power consumption may increase which possibly
could exceed the limits required for ENERGY STAR qualification.
~
• This manual is for the 32 class, 37, 40, 42, 46 and 52 inch BRAVIA KDL-XBR6, V and W series models with
screen size measured diagonally. The 32 class has a 31.5 inch viewable image size (measured diagonally).

Preparation for Wall-Mount Bracket
All models are ready to be mounted on a wall.
Models KDL-52V4100 and KDL-52W4100 will
require detaching the Table-Top stand.
• For product protection and safety reasons,
Sony strongly recommends that you use the
Wall-Mount Bracket model designed for your
TV and the wall-mounting of your TV should
be performed by a Sony dealer or licensed
contractor.
• Sufficient expertise is required in installing this
TV, especially to determine the strength of the
wall for withstanding the TV’s weight.
• Be sure to use the screws supplied with the
Wall-Mount Bracket when attaching the
mounting hooks to the TV set.
The supplied M6 screws are designed so that they
are 8 mm to 12 mm in length when measured
from the attaching surface of the mounting hook.
The diameter and length of the screws differ
depending on the Wall-Mount Bracket model.
Use of screws other than those supplied may
result in internal damage to the TV set or cause it
to fall, etc.
• Models KDL-32/37XBR6, KDL-40V4150,
KDL-40/42/46V4100, KDL-40/46W4100 and

Explanation/Solution
No picture
No picture
Cannot receive any channels
TV is locked to one channel
Cannot receive or select

• Picture quality depends on the signal content. See Quick Setup Guide
(supplied) to display the best possible picture for that signal.
• Content and signal quality are regulated by the signal provider. Many HD
channels and content are actually upscaled versions of standard-definition
broadcasts. The picture is affected by the quality of the signal received, which
varies between channel and program.
• Confirm the picture quality by selecting Signal Diagnostics in the Product
Support settings (page 31). Then select Sample Image (or Additional
Information first). An HD image will display on the screen to confirm routine
panel operation. If your normal picture quality is worse than this sample image,
it is most likely due to the signal provided by the broadcaster.
• Check cable/antenna connections.
• Check the antenna location and direction.
• Check if the antenna is broken or bent.
• Check if the antenna has reached the end of its serviceable life. (3-5 years in
normal use, 1-2 years at the seaside.)
• Keep the TV away from noise sources such as cars, motorcycles, 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.

• Due to the thin profile of this television, the heat generated by the LCD panel
backlight and supporting electronics will be more noticeable. This is normal
operation and not a cause for concern.
• 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 Wide Mode
selected with WIDE on the remote control, set 4:3 Default to Off in the
Screen settings (see page 35).
• Check the Auto Wide option in the Screen settings (see page 35).

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 22). This setting will remain in effect
