Enabling the IR Repeater Function (when
you cannot control the TV)
When the Bar Speaker obstructs the remote control sensor of the TV,
the TV remote control may not work. In that case, enable the IR
repeater function of the system.
You can control the TV with the remote control of the TV by sending
the remote signal from the rear of the Bar Speaker.
Note
The front panel display is turned off when “DIM2” is selected. It turns on
automatically when you press any buttons, then turns off again if you do
not operate the system for about 10 seconds. However, in some cases,
the front panel display may not turn off.
Saving Power in Standby Mode
Check that you have made the following settings:
– [Bluetooth Standby] is set to [Off] (page 25).
– [Standby Through] is set to [Off] (page 26).
– [Quick Start/Network Standby] is set to [Off] (page 26).
– [Remote Start] is set to [Off] (page 27).
Note
Be sure to check that the remote control of the TV cannot control the TV,
and then set [IR-Repeater] to [On] (page 25). If it is set to [On] when the
remote control can control the TV, appropriate operation may not be
obtained because of the interference between the direct command from
the remote control and the command via the system.

Additional Information
Precautions
On safety
 Should any solid object or liquid fall into the system, unplug
the system
and have it checked by qualified personnel before operating it any
further.
 Do not climb on the Bar Speaker and subwoofer, as you may fall down
and injure yourself, or system damage may result.
On power sources
 Before
operating the system, check that the operating voltage is
identical to your local power supply. The operating voltage is indicated
on the nameplate at the rear of the Bar Speaker.
 If you are not going to use the system for a long time, be sure to
disconnect the system from the wall outlet (mains). To disconnect the
AC power cord (mains lead), grasp the plug itself; never pull the cord.
 One blade of the plug is wider than the other for the purpose of safety
and will fit into the wall outlet (mains) only one way. If you are unable to
insert the plug fully into the outlet, contact your dealer.
 AC power cord (mains lead) must be changed only at a qualified service
shop.
 If the system is being used in combination with a TV, VCR, or tape deck,
noise may result and picture quality may suffer. In such a case, place the
system away from the TV, VCR, or tape deck.
 Use caution when placing the system on a surface that has been
specially treated (with wax, oil, polish, etc.), as staining or discoloration
of the surface may result.
 Take care to avoid any possible injury from the corners of the Bar
Speaker and subwoofer.
 Keep 3 cm or more space under the Bar Speaker when you hang it on a
wall.
On handling the subwoofer
Do not place your hand into the slit of the subwoofer when lifting it. The
speaker driver may be damaged. When lifting it, hold the bottom of the
subwoofer.
On operation
Before connecting other devices, be sure to turn off and unplug the
system.
If you encounter color irregularity on a nearby TV screen
Color irregularities may be observed on certain types of TV sets.
If color irregularity is observed...
Turn off the TV set, then turn it on again after 15 to 30 minutes.
If color irregularity is observed again...
Although the system heats up during operation, this is not a malfunction.
If you continuously use this system at high volume, the system
temperature at the rear and bottom rises considerably. To avoid burning
yourself, do not touch the system.
On cleaning
On placement
 Place the system in a location with adequate ventilation to prevent heat
buildup and prolong the life of the system.
Place the system further away from the TV set.
Clean the system with a soft, dry cloth. Do not use any type of abrasive
pad, scouring powder, or solvent such as alcohol or benzine.
If you have any question or problem concerning your system, please
consult your nearest Sony dealer.
 Do not place the system near heat sources or in a place subject to direct
sunlight, excessive dust, or mechanical shock.

 BLUETOOTH
On BLUETOOTH Communication
 BLUETOOTH
devices should be used within approximately 10 meters
(unobstructed distance) of each other. The effective communication
range may become shorter under the following conditions.
– When a person, metal object, wall or other obstruction is between the
devices with a BLUETOOTH connection
– Locations where a wireless LAN is installed
– Around microwave ovens that are in use
– Locations where other electromagnetic waves occur
 BLUETOOTH devices and wireless LAN (IEEE 802.11b/g) use the same
frequency band (2.4 GHz). When using your BLUETOOTH device near a
device with wireless LAN capability, electromagnetic interference may
occur. This could result in lower data transfer rates, noise, or inability to
connect. If this happens, try the following remedies:
– Use this system at least 30 meters away from the wireless LAN device.
– Turn off the power to the wireless LAN device when using your
BLUETOOTH device within 10 meters.
– Install this system and BLUETOOTH device as closer to each other as
possible.
 The radio waves broadcast by this system may interfere with the
operation of some medical devices. Since this interference may result in
malfunction, always turn off the power on this system and BLUETOOTH
device in the following locations:
– In hospitals, on trains, in airplanes, at gas stations, and any place
where flammable gasses may be present
– Near automatic doors or fire alarms
 This system supports security functions that comply with the
BLUETOOTH specification to ensure secure connection during
communication using BLUETOOTH technology. However, this security
may be insufficient depending on the setting content and other factors,
so always be careful when performing communication using
BLUETOOTH technology.
 Sony cannot be held liable in any way for damages or other loss
resulting from information leaks during communication using
BLUETOOTH technology.
54GB
communication is not necessarily guaranteed with all
BLUETOOTH devices that have the same profile as this system.
 BLUETOOTH devices connected with this system must comply with the
BLUETOOTH specification prescribed by the Bluetooth SIG, Inc., and
must be certified to comply. However, even when a device complies
with the BLUETOOTH specification, there may be cases where the
characteristics or specifications of the BLUETOOTH device make it
impossible to connect, or may result in different control methods,
display or operation.
 Noise may occur or the audio may cut off depending on the BLUETOOTH
device connected with this system, the communications environment,
or surrounding conditions.
If you have any questions or problems concerning your system,
please consult your nearest Sony dealer.
