Cleaning

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.

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.

Service

Damage Requiring Service

Do not attempt to service the set by yourself since opening the cabinet may expose you to dangerous voltage or other hazards.

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 39.

For Safety

Be Careful When Moving the

TV

When you place the TV in position, be careful not to drop it on your foot or fingers.

Watch your footing while installing the TV.

STD/DUO POWER

Carry the TV in the Specified

Manner

If you carry the TV in a manner other than the specified manner and without the specified number of persons, it may drop and a serious injury may be caused. Be sure to follow the instructions mentioned below.

s Carry the TV with the specified number of persons (see page 9).

s Hold the TV tightly when carrying it.

s Before carrying the TV, disconnect any accessories or cables.

About the TV

Although the TV is made with high-precision technology, black dots may appear or bright points of light (red, blue, or green) may appear constantly on the screen. This is a structural property of the panel and is not a defect.

Installation

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 10.

s When installing your TV against a wall, keep it at least 4 inches (10 cm) away from the wall.

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 39.)

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.

Disposal of Used Batteries

To preserve our environment, dispose of used batteries according to your local laws or regulations.

For Customers in the United States

Lamp in this product contains mercury. Disposal of these materials may be regulated due to environmental considerations. For disposal or recycling information, please contact your local authorities or the Electronic Industries Alliance

(www.eiae.org).

Welcome to the World of BRAVIA™

6

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.

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 14). 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 24, 31

and 32).

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™.

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 38).

“How to Replace the Lamp”, see page 39.

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.

WARNING

Electric appliances can cause fire or high temperature, resulting in injury or death. Be sure to follow the instructions below.

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.

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.

4

Remove the outside lamp cover.

Using equal force, press both hooks (marked by 1) towards the TV screen in the direction the arrows are pointing.

While pressing the two hooks (marked by 1), push the center lever (marked by 2) towards the TV screen and pull the lamp cover towards you. The lamp cover should come off easily.

5

Remove the lamp door.

Holding the door knob, press the door lever toward the door knob in the direction the arrow is pointing. Then, pull the lamp door out of the TV towards you.

~

• If the lamp is not securely reattached, the selfdiagnostic function may be triggered and the POWER

LED blinks six times (see page 21).

8

Reattach the lamp door.

Be sure that the word “TOP” imprinted on the lamp door is on top while placing the door lamp into the compartment.

6

Pull the lamp out of the TV.

Grip the lamp by the indented grooves as illustrated below.

Pull the lamp straight out of the TV as illustrated below.

Grip the door knob, but do not hold in the door lever when sliding the lamp door into the compartment.

~

• The lamp is very hot immediately after use. Do not touch the inside of the lamp compartment, the glass portion of the lamp, or the surrounding parts.

• After the used lamp has cooled, place it into the empty box of the replacement lamp. Never put the used lamp into a plastic bag.

While keeping the lamp door at a slant, slide the lamp door into the compartment by leading with the left side. Insert the two tabs into the slot and follow the guide rail. Once the left side can no longer be pushed in, press the lamp door lever toward the door knob.

Shut the lamp door by releasing the door lever.

7

Slide the new lamp into its place.

Insert the new lamp into place by holding the indented grooves firmly. Make sure the lamp is securely mounted into the compartment.

Failure to do so may cause a fire or the screen to go dark.

~

• The lamp door is securely closed when a clicking sound occurs. Make sure it is securely closed by tugging on the door knob.

40

9

Put the outside lamp cover back in its place.

Insert the two small tabs from the left side of the outside lamp cover into the slots of the TV.

Push in the two larger tabs of the outside lamp cover on the right side into the TV. The outside lamp cover is securely closed after two clicking sounds are made.

10

Plug in the power cord. Turn on the TV and set the

Lamp Replacement

option in the

General

settings (see page 38). This setting is

necessary to inform you when the next lamp replacement is needed.

~

• Until you set the Lamp Replacement option, a message announcing that the lamp is at the end of its life will appear every time you turn on the TV.

• Consult your Sony dealer for a Sony XL-2500 replacement lamp.

• Take great care when replacing the lamp or plugging in/unplugging the connecting cords. Rough handling may cause the TV to fall, damaging the TV, the TV stand and the floor.

The used lamp

For customers in the United States:

Poor Picture

General

Wide Mode changes automatically

“Black box” on screen

Black bands appear at the edges of the screen

Certain programs on DVD or other digital sources display a loss of detail, especially during fast-motion or dark scenes

Remote control does not operate

• 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 31).

• Check the Auto Wide option in the Screen settings (see page 31).

• You have selected a text option and no text is available (see page 34). To turn off

this feature, set the CC Display option to Off. If you were trying to select closed captioning, select CC1 instead of Text1-4.

• 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 (or contact your program provider).

• Programs in 4:3 aspect ratio will have bands on left and right sides of the screen.

• This is due to the digital compression of the source content used by certain digital broadcasts and DVDs which may cause your TV’s screen to display less detail than usual, or cause artifacts (small blocks or dots, pixelations) to appear on your screen. These signal compressions are more visible and are dependent on the clarity and resolution of the television.

Some digital cable channels are not being displayed

• 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.

• Fluorescent lamps can interfere with your remote control operation; try turning off the fluorescent lamps.

• Keep the remote control sensor area clear from obstacles.

• 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 34).

• Turn on the TV. While holding down

V on the remote control, press POWER on the TV. (The TV will turn itself off, then back on again.) Release

V.

WARNING: The Reset will clear all of your customized settings including the

Parental Lock setting.

• Replace the lamp (see page 39).

• It is time for you to replace the projection lamp used in you TV.

• Turn to page 39 on “How to Replace the Lamp” and follow the directions on

replacing the lamp.

• Use only the lamp designated for your TV model.

• After the lamp is replaced, select the Lamp Replacement option in the

General settings.

• The lamp door or lamp might not be securely attached. Repeat the steps on page

39 to ensure that they are both installed securely.

• If the TV is used at high altitudes and the Cooling Mode is set to High, the cooling fan runs faster and its sound becomes louder. If the TV is not used at

high altitudes, set Cooling Mode to Normal (see page 38).

• Make sure to remove dust from the ventilation slots on the rear and both sides of the TV. In addition, make sure that there are no obstacles in front of the ventilation slots. If the message still appears after the dust or obstacles are removed, the TV may need servicing. Call your local Sony Service Center.

• Turn off the TV for a while or let the TV run on another channel. Unlike plasma

TV and CRT TV, image retention on this TV is not permanent. It is only a

temporary condition (see page 10).

• If screen is exposed to direct sunlight or strong ambient light, part of the screen may appear white even when TV is power off. This is due to the strong light reflecting off the TV screen and reflections coming from behind the screen.

This is a structural property of the projection TV and is not a defect.

• Position your TV away from such light sources.
