How to Reduce the Risk of "Image Retention"
on the Screen
Please take the following steps to reduce the risk of causing
image retention:
· When using video games, computers, and similar products
with your projection TV, or viewing a TV station whose
logo always stays on the screen, keep the Brightness and
Picture functions at low settings. (See page 62 for
instructions on adjusting Brightness and Picture settings.)
· View a variety of programming material. Changing the
program material viewed reduces the possibility that a
single image will become imprinted on the screens.
· This TV was designed primarily for viewing TV broadcasts
in wide screen mode (16:9 aspect ratio). Therefore when
viewing conventional (4:3) aspect ratio TV programs,
select Wide Mode settings that fill the image on your
screen. This will reduce the possibility of the gray sidebars
becoming permanently imprinted.
Please see page 62 for instructions on adjusting picture
settings. See pages 53-54 for information about using Wide
Mode.
IMAGE RETENTION IS NOT COVERED BY YOUR WARRANTY
This symbol is intended to alert the user to the
presence of uninsulated “dangerous voltage”
within the product’s enclosure that may be of
sufficient magnitude to constitute a risk of
electric shock to persons.
As an ENERGY STAR® Partner, Sony has
determined that this product or product models
meets the ENERGY STAR guidelines for energy
efficiency. ENERGY STAR is a U.S. registered mark.
This symbol is intended to alert the user to the
presence of important operating and maintenance
(servicing) instructions in the literature
accompanying the appliance.
Do not expose the TV to dripping or splashing. Avoid placing
liquid-filled objects, such as vases, on top of the TV.
CAUTION
To prevent electric shock, do not use this polarized AC plug with
an extension cord, receptacle or other outlet unless the blades can
be fully inserted to prevent blade exposure.
CAUTION
If a fixed (non-moving) pattern, such as a station logo, is
left on the screen for long periods of time, especially at a
high brightness or picture setting, the image can be
permanently imprinted onto the screen. These types of
imprints are known as “image retention.”

Introducing the Projection TV
Welcome
This chapter describes the contents of the package in which the TV is
shipped and provides an overview of the features of your projection
TV.
Package Contents
Along with your new projection TV, the package contains a remote
control and two AA batteries. No additional cables are included.
These items are all you need to set up and operate the projection TV
in its basic configuration.
Most components (VCRs, DVD players, etc.) come with the necessary
cables to connect them. If you want to set up a complex system, you
may need to buy extra cables, connectors, etc. Be sure to have these
on hand before you start to connect your system.
Features
Some of the features that you will enjoy with your new TV include:
❑
❑
Wide Screen Mode: Watch conventional 4:3 aspect ratio
broadcasts in wide screen (16:9) mode.
DRC® (Digital Reality Creation) Multifunction: Unlike
conventional line doublers, the DRC Multifunction feature
replaces the signal’s NTSC waveform with the HD equivalent,
while doubling the number of vertical and horizontal lines. This
results in four times the density for quality sources, such as DVD,
satellite, and digital camcorders. The Video Menu allows you to
select interlaced, progressive, or CineMotion™ output.
❑
Favorite Channels: Allows you to preview and select from 16 of
your favorite channels.
❑
Twin View™: Using the Multi-Image Driver (MIDX), Twin View
allows you to watch two programs side by side, with the ability
to zoom in one picture. You can watch pictures from two
different sources (1080i, 720p, 480p, and 480i) simultaneously.
(Only the left Twin View window can display 1080i, 720p, and
480p sources.)
❑
ClearEdge VM™ Velocity Modulation: Sharpens picture
definition by enhancing vertical lines.
❑
Steady Sound®: Equalizes volume levels so there is consistent
output between programs and commercials.
7
❑
Component Video Inputs: Offers high quality video for DVD
(480p, 480i), and digital set-top box (HD1080i, 720p) connections.
❑
HD Detailer™: Wideband video amplifier has a high bandwidth
frequency rating, which allows it to send more video information
to the screen, resulting in finer picture quality, especially for HD
sources.
❑
CineMotion™: Reverse 3-2 pulldown processing provides
optimal picture quality for film-based sources (media originally
shot in 24 frames-per-second format).
❑
Parental Control: V-Chip technology allows parents to block
unsuitable programming from younger viewers.
❑
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface): Provides an
uncompressed, all-digital audio/video interface between this TV
and any HDMI-equipped audio/video component, such as a settop box, DVD player, and A/V receiver. HDMI supports
enhanced, or high-definition video, plus two-channel digital
audio.

However, you can use only some of the dual picture features for channels coming
through the cable box to the TV’s AUX input jack. For example, when you switch the TV’s
input to AUX — to select the cable box input — the picture displays only in the left
window. For example, if you turn on Twin View, you can watch cable channels coming
into the VHF/UHF jack in the right window, but you cannot swap the pictures between
the left and right windows.

aspect ratio
A signaling method that uses continuous changes in the amplitude or frequency of an
electronic transmission to convey information.
Refers to the ratio between the width and height of the screen. This TV has a 16:9
(widescreen) aspect ratio, as opposed to a 4:3 aspect ratio.
SETUP
4:3 aspect ratio
component video
SETUP
composite video
HDMI (High-Definition
Multimedia Interface)
16:9 aspect ratio
Component video is sent through three cables: two color shade (chrominance) signals and one
brightness (luminance) signal. Component video achieves greater color accuracy than
composite video or S VIDEO by splitting chrominance into two separate portions.
Composite video is sent through a single cable. Composite video combines the color shade
(chrominance) and brightness (luminance) information into one video signal.
Provides an uncompressed, all-digital audio/video interface between this TV and any HDMIequipped audio/video component, such as a set-top box, DVD player, and A/V receiver. HDMI
supports enhanced, or high-definition video, plus two-channel digital audio.
A unit of the Federal Communications Commission, Washington, DC, that establishes
television standards in the United States, such as NTSC Color, the standard used in this TV.
RF
Radio Frequency. That part of the frequency spectrum that is used to transmit TV and radio
signals.

S VIDEO
S VIDEO requires a single cable, which carries the brightness (luminance) and color
(chrominance) signals of the picture separately. S VIDEO provides better resolution than
composite video, which carries the signals together.
VHF/UHF
VHF (Very High Frequency) is the part of the frequency spectrum from 30 to 300 megahertz.
UHF (Ultra High Frequency) is the part of the frequency spectrum from 300 to 3,000
megahertz.
480i
Provides 480 lines of resolution. Displays images using interlaced scanning, which first
transmits all the odd lines on the TV screen and then the even lines.
480p
Provides 480 lines of resolution. Displays images using progressive scanning, which transmits
each line from top to bottom.
720p
Provides 720 lines of resolution. Displays images using progressive scanning, which transmits
each line from top to bottom.
1080i
Provides 1080 lines of resolution. Displays images using interlaced scanning, which first
transmits all the odd lines on the TV screen and then the even lines. 1080i is one of the
formats used by HDTV (High Definition TV).

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 the
FUNCTION button for that device. For example, if you are using your cable
box to change channels, be sure to press the SAT/CABLE FUNCTION button.
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.

If your TV does not turn on, and a red light keeps flashing, your TV may
need service. Call your local Sony Service Center.
Make sure the power cord is plugged in.
Press the POWER button on the front of the TV.
Press the TV/VIDEO button to cycle through the connected video sources.
Try another channel; it could be station trouble.
Adjust the Picture option in the Video Menu (see page 62).
Adjust the Brightness option in the Video Menu (see page 62).
Check the antenna/cable connections.
Check to be sure that you have not connected both S VIDEO and composite
video cables to the VIDEO 3 input. You can use S VIDEO or composite
video inputs for VIDEO 3, but not both.
Adjust the Color option in the Video Menu (see page 62).
Check the antenna/cable connections.
Try another channel; it could be station trouble.
Press ANT to change the input mode (see page 45).
Adjust the antenna.
Move the TV away from noise sources such as cars, neon signs, or hairdryers.
Using a highly directional outdoor antenna or a cable may solve the
problem.
You have selected a text option in the Setup Menu and no text is available.
(See page 72 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.
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 bars 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.

Press MUTING so that Muting disappears from the screen (see page 44).
Make sure the Speaker option is set to On in the Audio Menu (see page 65).
Increase the volume of the cable box using the cable box’s remote control.
Then press TV FUNCTION 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 64), set the MTS setting to Stereo. If
already set to Stereo, switch to Mono (which may reduce background noise
during weak stereo broadcasts).
If the Speaker option is set to Off and the Audio Out option is set to Fixed (in
order to output the sound to your audio system) use your audio receiver to
adjust the sound (see page 64). Or, to use the TV remote control, set the
Audio Out option to Variable.
To turn on the TV speakers, set the Speaker option to On (see page 64).
80
Turn on the TV. While holding down the RESET button on the remote
control, press the POWER button on the TV. (The TV will turn itself off, then
back on again.) Release the RESET button.
Press the RESET button on the remote control while in the Video Menu (see
page 63).
Press the RESET button on the remote control while in the Audio Menu (see
page 65).
Be sure the Video Label option is not set to Skip (see page 73).
If a menu option appears in gray, this indicates that the TV is in a state in
which the menu option is not available.
In the password screen (see page 69), enter the following master password:
4357. The master password clears your previous password; it cannot be
used to temporarily unblock channels.
The STAND BY LED (see page 12) blinks when the TV is turned on, then
shuts off when the picture is displayed. If the LED blinks continuously, this
may indicate the TV needs service.
The TIMER LED (see page 12) indicates that the timer is set. When the
timer is set, this LED will remain lit even when the TV is turned off.
