Introducing Your New BRAVIA®
Set, Sound, Source, and Setup
Getting Started
Setting Up Your TV
The TV is packaged with a detached Table-Top Stand so you can mount the 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. Use a
Philips screwdriver and the supplied screws to complete the task. Look for the attachment
instruction taped to the TV unit.
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.
• Placement of the hands carrying the TV is very important for safety and to avoid damage.
• Adequate ventilation is necessary (see page 13).
• 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 on the TV.
• For additional safety information, read the supplied Safety and Regulatory Booklet.
• When cable connection is completed, be sure to secure the TV to a stable surface or mount it to a
wall. The designated Sony wall-mount bracket model is available on page 2 of this manual. For
details on securing the TV and items listed above, see page 14.

Follow the simple steps below to remove the Table-Top Stand:
1 Disconnect all the cables from the TV.
2 Secure the Mounting Hook to the rear of the TV.
3 Adjust the angle of the Mounting Hook.
4 Start removing the screws behind the TV (See
illustration). Do not remove any other screws from
the TV.
5 When screws are removed, lift the TV off the stand.
Make sure that you carry out this task with at least
two people. Do not attempt to lift the TV by yourself.

For bracket installation, refer to the instruction guide provided by the Wall-Mount Bracket model
for your TV. Sufficient expertise is required in installing this TV, especially to determine the
strength of the wall for withstanding the TV’s weight. For product protection and safety
reasons, Sony strongly recommends that you use the Wall-Mount Bracket model designed
for your TV and that the wall-mounting of your TV is performed by Sony dealers or licensed
contractors.

Be sure to use the screws supplied with the Wall-Mount Bracket when attaching the mounting
hooks to the TV set. The supplied 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.

Other Information
Suddenly the picture gets
smaller
• 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 28).
• Check the Auto Wide option in the Screen settings (see page 28).
• 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 23). This setting
will remain in effect until you change the channel or input or manually change
the Wide Mode again.
• 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.
Condition
Black bands appear at the
edges of the screen
Certain programs on DVD
or other digital sources
display a loss of detail,
especially during fastmotion or dark scenes
Remote control does not
operate
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).
• 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.
• 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 TV.
• 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 • Certain cable companies have limitations on the broadcast of digital
are not being displayed
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 30).
Lost password
• Select the Password settings on the Parental Lock settings, then enter
the following master password: 4357. This password clears your previous
password and allows you to enter a new password (see page 31).
How to reset the TV to
