IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
For your protection, please read these instructions completely, and
keep this manual for future reference.
Carefully observe and comply with all warnings, cautions and
instructions placed on the set, or described in the operating
instructions or service manual.
WARNING
To guard against injury, the following basic safety precautions
should be observed in the installation, use, and servicing of the set.
Use
Power Sources
This set should be operated only from the type
of power source indicated on the serial/model
plate. If you are not sure of the type of electrical
power supplied to your home, consult your
dealer or local power company. For those sets
designed to operate from battery power, refer
to the operating instructions.
Grounding or Polarization
This set is equipped with a polarized AC power cord plug (a plug
having one blade wider than the other), or with a three-wire
grounding type plug (a plug having a third pin for grounding).
Follow the instructions below:
For the set with a polarized AC power cord plug
This plug will fit into the power outlet only one
way. This is a safety feature. If you are unable to
insert the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing
the plug. If the plug should still fail to fit, contact your electrician to
have a suitable outlet installed. Do not defeat the safety purpose of
the polarized plug by forcing it in.
Alternate Warning
For the set with a three-wire grounding type AC plug
This plug will only fit into a grounding-type
power outlet. This is a safety feature. If you are
unable to insert the plug into the outlet, contact
your electrician to have a suitable outlet installed.
Do not defeat the safety purpose of the grounding plug.
Overloading
Do not overload wall outlets, extension cords or
convenience receptacles beyond their capacity,
since this can result in fire or electric shock.
Always turn the set off when it is not to be
used. When the set is left unattended and
unused for long periods of time, unplug it
from the wall outlet as a precaution against
the possibility of an internal malfunction that
could create a fire hazard.
Do not disconnect the antenna or the power cord during a heavy
storm. Lightning may strike while you are holding the cable or
cord, causing serious injury. Turn off your TV and wait for the
weather to improve.
Memory Stick
To protect small children from injury from Memory Stick Media,
remove all Memory Stick media from the TV’s Memory Stick slot
and store it in a safe location when it is not in use.
2
Object and Liquid Entry
Never push objects of any kind into the set
through the cabinet slots as they may touch
dangerous voltage points or short out parts that
could result in a fire or electric shock. Never spill
liquid of any kind on the set.
Attachments
Do not use attachments not recommended by the
manufacturer, as they may cause hazards.
Do not place any objects, especially heavy objects,
on top of the set. The object may fall from the set,
causing injury.
Cleaning
Unplug the set from the wall outlet before
cleaning or polishing it. Do not use liquid
cleaners or aerosol cleaners. Use a cloth lightly
dampened with water for cleaning the exterior
of the set.
If a snapping or popping sound from a TV set is
continuous or frequent while the TV is operating,
unplug the TV and consult your dealer or service
technician. It is normal for some TV sets to make
occasional snapping or popping sounds,
particularly when being turned on or off.
Installation
Always use two or more people to lift or move the set. The set is
heavy and the bottom surface is flat. Serious injury can result from
trying to move the set by yourself alone, or from unsteady
handling. Install the set on a stable, level surface.
Water and Moisture
Do not use power-line operated sets near
water — for example, near a bathtub,
washbowl, kitchen sink, or laundry tub, in a
wet basement, or near a swimming pool, etc.
Accessories
Do not place the set on an unstable cart, stand,
tripod, bracket, table or shelf. The set may fall,
causing serious injury to a child or an adult, and
serious damage to the set. Use only a cart or stand
recommended by the manufacturer for the
specific model of TV. Any mounting of the
product should follow the manufacturer’s
instructions, and should use a mounting
accessory recommended by the manufacturer. An
appliance and cart combination should be moved
with care. Quick stops, excessive force, and
uneven surfaces may cause the appliance and cart
combination to overturn.
Disconnect all cables and cords from the set before attempting to
move the set.
Do not allow children or pets to climb up onto, or push against, the
set. The set may fall, causing serious injury.
XS.book Page 3 Tuesday, June 8, 2004 1:40 PM
Ventilation
Lightning
The slots and openings in the cabinet and in the
back or bottom are provided for necessary
ventilation. To ensure reliable operation of the set,
and to protect it from overheating, these slots and
openings must never be blocked or covered.
For added protection for this television receiver during a lightning
storm, or when it is left unattended and unused for long periods of
time, unplug it from the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna.
This will prevent damage to the receiver due to lightning and
power line surges.
❑
Never cover the slots and openings with a
cloth or other materials.
Service
❑
Never block the slots and openings by
placing the set on a bed, sofa, rug or other
similar surface.
❑
Never place the set in a confined space, such
as a bookcase, or built-in cabinet, unless
proper ventilation is provided.
❑
Do not place the set near or over a radiator
or heat register, or where it is exposed to direct sunlight.
Power Cord Protection
Do not allow anything to rest on or roll over the
power cord, and do not place the set where the
power cord is subject to wear or abuse.
Antennas
Outdoor Antenna Grounding

Introducing the FD Trinitron Wega
Overview
This chapter describes the contents of the package in which the TV is
shipped and provides an overview of the features of your Wega TV.
Presenting the FD Trinitron Wega
The FD Trinitron Wega (pronounced VAY-GAH) is characterized by
outstanding contrast, uncompromising accuracy, and corner-tocorner detail.
You will recognize the superiority of Wega technology almost
immediately. The first thing you will probably notice is minimal glare
from the flat picture tube. This flat-screen technology improves
picture detail without distortion, unlike conventional curved screens.
The FD Trinitron delivers outstanding image detail not only at the
screen center, but also at the corners — so you can enjoy a bright,
clear picture from any location in a room.
Package Contents
Along with your new Trinitron TV, the packing box contains a remote
control and two AA (R6) batteries. These items are all you need to set
up and use the TV.
Features
Some of the features that you will enjoy with your new TV include:
❑
Built-in Digital Television Receiver: You can watch digital
television programs and enjoy the improved audio/video quality
offered by these programs. With high-definition signal reception,
you can watch TV signals broadcast in HDTV for the clearest
possible broadcast picture.
❑
CableCARD slot: Provides cable subscribers with access to
digitally encrypted cable channels — without the need for a settop box — that will enable you to receive not only standard
definition but also high definition television. The CableCARD,
which is provided by your cable TV company, is inserted into the
TV’s rear panel CableCARD slot. After the service is activated
with your cable TV company, the card replaces the need for a
separate set-top box. (Check with your cable TV company about
CableCARD service details, limitations, pricing, and availability.
For more information about CableCARD in this manual, see
pages 15 and 41.)

Screen Mode: Enables you to resize the picture.
Super Fine Pitch CRT: Created especially for displaying high
resolution pictures, the new Super Fine Pitch CRT — along with a
new electron gun and high intensity luminescent phosphor —
improves image resolution, providing the highest picture quality
reproduction from corner to corner.
❑
DRC® (Digital Reality Creation) Multifunction: Unlike
conventional line doublers, the DRC Multifunction feature
replaces the signal’s NTSC waveform with the near-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 select from 16 of your favorite
channels.
❑
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.
❑
Memory Stick® Viewer: Lets you watch digital photo (JPEG) and
movie (MPEG1) files that are stored on Memory Stick media.
❑
Component Video Inputs: Offers the best video quality 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.

About Using CableCARD
If you are planning to use a separate cable box for digital cable TV services, you may be able
to receive programming using this TV with the CableCARD instead — except in the following
circumstances:
Your cable TV company does not provide CableCARD service in your viewing area.
❑
You want to access your cable company’s interactive or advanced features (such as videoon-demand or, in some cases, pay-per-view). At this time, these services require a
bidirectional link, which are only available through the use of a separate set-top box.
CableCARD is currently a unidirectional device only, and cannot provide these advanced
services.
SETUP
Check with your cable TV company for CableCARD service details, limitations, pricing, and
availability, all of which are determined by your cable TV company — not Sony. For
information on installing and activating CableCARD, see “Using CableCARD” on page 41.

Using CableCARD
SETUP
CableCARD provides cable subscribers with access to digitally
encrypted cable channels — without the need for a set-top box — that
will enable you to receive not only standard definition but also high
definition television. The CableCARD, which is provided by your
cable TV company, is inserted into the TV’s rear panel CableCARD
slot. After the service is activated with your cable TV company, the
card replaces the need for a separate set-top box.
About Using CableCARD
Your cable TV company does not provide CableCARD service in your viewing area.
❑
You want to access your cable company’s interactive or advanced features (such as videoon-demand or, in some cases, pay-per-view). At this time, these services require a
bidirectional link, which are only available through the use of a separate set-top box.
CableCARD is currently a unidirectional device only, and cannot provide these advanced
services.
Check with your cable TV company for CableCARD service details, limitations, pricing, and
availability, all of which are determined by your cable TV company — not Sony.
Before you can use CableCARD service, you need to insert the
CableCARD (supplied by your cable TV company) and activate the
service, as described below:
1 Turn off the TV.
2 Insert the CableCARD into the TV’s CableCARD slot.
