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.

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 21, 44

and 45).

TV Home Menu: XMB

Your BRAVIA TV is Energy Star Compliant. It meets strict energy efficiency

guidelines set by the EPA and US 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 stay within the Energy Star guidelines.

• 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 the Energy Star qualification.

Preparation for Wall-Mount Bracket

All models are ready to be mounted on a wall.

• 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.

8-12 mm

Leave at least this much space around the set.

• When moving the TV from a cold area to a warm area, a sudden room temperature change may cause the TV’s picture to blur or show poor color due to moisture condensation.

Should this occur, please wait a few hours to allow the moisture to evaporate before powering on the TV.

Bundling the Connecting Cables

You can bundle the connecting cables as illustrated below.

AC IN

~

• Do not bundle the AC power cord with other connecting cables.

Securing the TV

Sony strongly recommends taking measures to prevent the TV from toppling over. Unsecured TVs may topple and result in property damage, serious bodily injury or even death.

Prevent the TV from Toppling Over

s

Secure the TV to a wall and/or stand.

s Do not allow children to play or climb on furniture and TV sets.

s Avoid placing or hanging items on the TV.

s Never install the TV on:

• slippery, unstable and/or uneven surfaces.

• furniture that can easily be used as steps, such as a chest of drawers.

s

Install the TV where it cannot be pulled, pushed, or knocked over.

s

Route all AC power cords and connecting cables so that they are not accessible to curious children.

Use a Sony TV Stand

Use a Sony specified TV stand (see page 2) and

follow the instruction manual provided with the

Sony TV stand.

If a Sony specified TV stand is not used, consider the following recommended measures.

Recommended Measures to Secure the TV

Secure the Stand for the TV

Make sure the TV stand can adequately support the weight of the TV. Use two angle braces (not supplied) to secure the stand.

For each angle brace use the appropriate hardware to:

• attach one side of the angle brace to the wall stud.

• attach the other side to the TV stand.

Angle brace

• Rope or chain (strong enough to support the weight of the TV). Make sure that there is no excess slack in the rope or chain.

An alternative way to secure the TV is with an optional Sony Support Belt Kit.

• Your IP Address configuration can be viewed by selecting the Review option.

See Network Setup on page 51.

DLNA Certified™ server is listed under the Photo icon, but is inaccessible

• The TV may have lost connection with the server, check your LAN cable/ connection or your server connections.

Condition

PC Input

No picture / No signal

Explanation/Solution

Poor Picture

• Confirm the PC is correctly connected to the TV with either the PC IN (with an

HD15 cable) or with the HDMI IN.

• Ensure the output signal from the PC is one of the formats listed on page 14.

• Turn the PC off. Confirm the PC connection and restart the PC. Plug-and-play will auto-detect the TV and correctly set up PC timing.

• Verify PC Power Management is activated (see page 52).

• Verify the PC is not in standby or hibernation mode.

• Adjust the resolution (see page 14).

• Adjust Pitch and Phase.

General

Wide Mode changes automatically

Suddenly the picture gets smaller

“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 44).

• Check the Auto Wide option in the Screen settings (see page 44).

• 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 21). 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 47). 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.

• Programs broadcasted 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, H Stretch 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.

Condition

Some digital cable channels are not being displayed

Explanation/Solution

• 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 46).

Some photo files or music files are not displayed from my USB equipment or DLNA

Certified media server

Photo images appear small in the screen

Photo images or folders take time to display

Lost password

• The accessible file or folder limit in a directory is 1,000 for USB and 30,000 for a DLNA Certified media server. This limit includes non-JPEG, MP3 files or just folders. Files or folders are populated based on their time stamps. Photo, music files or folders exceeding the limit will not be displayed.

• Set Display Size to Expanded (see page 31).

• Whether or not photo images can or cannot be displayed in full-screen depends on the resolution or aspect ratio of the file.

• Depending on the image dimension, file size, and number of files in a folder, some photo images or folders take time to display.

• The first time a camera is connected to the TV via USB cable, it may take up to a couple of minutes for the photos to display.

• 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 47).

How to reset the TV to factory settings

• 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.

The speaker grill is loose • Orient the speaker grill so that the location of the marks on the speaker grill and

TV match, insert the protrusions on the speaker grill into the holes on the TV, and support gently. Check that the speaker grill and TV are in contact without any gaps, and then secure it by pushing and sliding the speaker grill left into place.

TV screen feels warm • 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.
