seven days.
When turning off the power
❑ The fan will continue to blow for about two minutes after turning off the
power on the main unit or the remote control. Allow several minutes
before unplugging from the outlet or switching the breaker off.
Before carrying the LCD projection TV
❑ Disconnect all connections.
Cleaning the Screen
Surface
To remove dust on the screen, wipe with a soft cloth.
✍ Do not use any type of abrasive pad, alkaline cleaner, scouring powder,

Cable Box and Cable
This is the preferred basic cable TV hookup to use if:
❑
Your cable TV company scrambles some channels, but not all of them
(pay channels vs. regular cable channels) and you need to use a cable
box.
❑
You want to enjoy the Twin View feature.
With this setup you can:
❑
Use the LCD projection TV remote control to change channels on your
cable box when the signal is scrambled.
❑
Use the LCD projection TV remote control to change channels on your
LCD projection TV when the signal is not scrambled. (Your LCD
projection TV’s tuner provides a better signal than the cable box.)
❑
Use the Twin View feature. (When all channels are routed through your
cable box, only one channel is sent to the LCD projection TV, so you
cannot use the Twin View feature from your cable box.)
1
Connect a coaxial cable from your cable service to the LCD projection
TV’s VHF/UHF jack.
2
Using a coaxial cable, connect the LCD projection TV’s TO
CONVERTER jack to the cable box’s IN jack. The LCD projection
TV’s internal converter allows you to switch between unscrambled
signals coming straight into the LCD projection TV and scrambled

Factors Affecting Twin View
❑ If you use a cable box to view all channels, the same channel appears in
both windows because the cable box unscrambles only one channel at a
time, so the right picture will be the same as the left picture.
If you use a cable box and other video equipment connected, you can
view the cable box output in one window and view a different source
(such as a VCR or DVD player) in the second window by using the TV/
VIDEO button.
❑
Sources connected to the AUX, VIDEO 5, VIDEO 6, and VIDEO 7
inputs display in the left window, but not the right.
❑
If you are viewing a 4:3 source and a 16:9 enhanced source (such as a
DVD) side by side, the 4:3 source appears larger.

Twin View does not display channels that are blocked by parental

Troubleshooting
Twin View
Problem
Possible Remedies
I cannot get Twin View to work ❏
❏
❏
There is no Twin View window, ❏
or it is just static
❏
Twin View cannot display
anything but TV channels
❏
Twin View displays the same
program in both windows
❏
If you are using a cable box to unscramble all channels (as shown on page 32),
you cannot use the Twin View feature. This is because the cable box can
unscramble only one channel at a time.
You can use Twin View to view a signal from a different source that is connected
to the LCD projection TV’s AUDIO/VIDEO IN jacks (such as a VCR or DVD
player) in the second window by pressing TV/VIDEO while in Twin View.
Sources connected to the AUX, HD/DVD IN 5 and 6, DVI-HDTV IN 7 inputs
will display only in the left Twin View window.
Be sure the Twin View window is set to a video input or channel that has a signal
airing.
You might be tuned to a video input with nothing connected to it. Try cycling
through the video inputs by pressing TV/VIDEO.
Try cycling through the video inputs by pressing TV/VIDEO. Check that the
Video Label option is not set to Skip. (See the Setup Menu on page 74.)
Both Twin View windows might be set to the same channel. Try changing
channels in either window.

If your LCD projection TV does not turn on, and a red light keeps flashing, your
LCD projection TV may need service. Call your local Sony Service Center.
Make sure the power cord is plugged in.
Press POWER/STANDBY on the front panel of the LCD projection TV.
Check to see if the TV/VIDEO setting is correct: when watching TV, set to TV,
and when watching connected equipment, set to VIDEO 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 or 7.
The Parental Control feature is activated (see “Using the Parent Menu” on
page 69).
If your LCD projection TV’s power is on, and the LAMP (red) indication is
flashing, the lamp for the light source has burnt out. Replace it with new Sony
XL-2100U or XL-2100 replacement lamp (see page 15).
Try another channel; it could be station trouble.

Other Information
❏
If you are using the TV to change channels, first press the TV FUNCTION
button.
If you are using another device to change channels, be sure you have not
inadvertently switched your TV from the channel 3 or 4 setting. Use the Channel
Fix option to “fix” the channel based on the hookup you used (see page 67).
If you are using another device to change channels, be sure to press FUNCTION
(DVD/VCR, SAT/CABLE or TV) for that device.
If you replaced the batteries to the remote recently, the code numbers for the video
equipment may need to be reset.
There may be more than one code for the equipment that you are attempting to
operate.
There is a possibility that some non-Sony equipment cannot be operated by your
Sony TV remote.You may need to use the equipment’s original remote control.
Other Information
Problem
Dark, poor or no picture
(screen lit), good sound
Possible Remedies
❏ Adjust the Picture option in the Video menu (see page 61).
❏ Adjust the Brightness option in the Video menu (see page 61).
❏ Check the antenna/cable connections.
For optimum picture quality, a 75-ohm coaxial antenna connection is highly
recommended. Radio waves and other interference can easily affect a 300-ohm
twin lead cable, resulting in signal deterioration. If you use a 300-ohm twin lead
cable, keep as far away as possible from the LCD projection TV.
Do not use an indoor antenna; they are especially susceptible to radio noise (see
page 29).
❏ Adjust the Color option in the Video menu (see page 61).
No color/dark picture/color is
not correct
Only snow and noise appear on ❏
the screen
❏
❏
❏
Check the antenna/cable connections.
Check the Cable setting in the Channel menu (see “Cable” on page 67).
Make sure the channel is broadcasting programs.
Press ANT to change the input mode (see page 51).
Dotted lines or stripes
❏
❏
Adjust the antenna.
Move the LCD projection TV away from noise sources such as cars, neon signs,
or hair-dryers.
Double images
❏
Use a highly directional outdoor antenna or a cable (when the problem is caused
by reflections from nearby mountains or tall buildings).
Set the Image Shift to an appropriate value. The default setting is Auto. If doubled
images appear with Auto, select the best value from 1 to 4 (see page 76).
You have selected a text option in the Setup menu and no text is available. See
page 73 to reset Setup selections. To turn off this feature, set the Caption Vision
option to Off. If you were trying to select closed captioning, select CC1 instead of
Text 1-4.
❏
“Black box” on screen
❏
Black bands appear at the top
and bottom of the screen
❏
Certain programs on DVD or ❏
other digital sources display a
loss of detail, especially during
fast-motion or dark scenes
Some video sources do not
appear when I press TV/
VIDEO
❏
Some wide-screen programs are filmed in aspect ratios that are greater than 16:9
(this is especially common with theatrical releases). Your LCD projection 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).
The compression used by certain digital broadcasts and DVDs 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. This is due to your TV’s large screen
and ability to show very fine detail, and is normal for certain digitally recorded
programs. Adjust the reality/clarity in the Video menu DRC Palette (see page 62)
to optimize the picture while viewing these sources.
Ensure that Video Label is not set to “Skip” (see “Video Lable” on page 74).

Sound seems weak or
insufficient
Possible Remedies
❏ Press MUTING so that Muting disappears from the screen (see page 49).
❏ Make sure the Speaker option is set to On in the Audio menu (see page 64).
❏ Communication problems may occur if infrared communication equipment (e.g.,
infrared cordless headphones) is used near the TV. Please use headphones other
than infrared cordless headphones. Also, if you use infrared communication
equipment other than infrared cordless headphones, move the infrared transceiver
away from the TV until the noise is eliminated, or move the transmitter and
receiver of the infrared communication equipment closer together.
❏ Increase the volume of the cable box using the cable box’s remote control. Then
press TV FUNCTION button and adjust the TV’s volume.
❏ The TV’s audio might be set to Auto SAP or Mono, when it might be better set to
Stereo. In the Audio menu (see page 63), set the MTS setting to Stereo. If
already set to Stereo, switch to Mono (which may reduce background noise
during weak stereo broadcasts).
