Welcome to the World of BRAVIA™

8

Thank you for purchasing this Sony BRAVIA™ 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 full 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 external equipment

Contact your cable or satellite provider for information on upgrading to HD programming.

To learn more about HDTV, visit: http://www.sony.com/HDTV

The Four Steps to 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 14). 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. The 1080 HD signals provide more than twice the vertical resolution of the standard TV signal.

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 and maintains 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 22, 31

and 32).

Securing the TV

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

Prevent the TV from Toppling

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

1

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

2

Secure the TV to the stand.

Use the optional hardware listed below (not supplied):

• M6 × 10-12 mm anchor bolt (screwed into the

TV’s Table-Top stand).

• A screw or similar (attach it to the TV stand).

• 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.

3

Anchor the TV to the wall.

Use the hardware listed below (not supplied).

• Two M6 × 7-10 mm anchor bolts (screw into the top-most wall-mount holes located on the rear of the TV).

• Rope or chain (attach to one M6 anchor bolt).

• Wall-anchor (attach to the wall stud) strong enough to support the weight of the TV (pass the rope through the wall-anchor, then attach to the other M6 anchor bolt).

• Measure 2 provides minimal protection against the TV toppling over. For further protection, follow all three measures recommended above.

• When using an electric screwdriver, set the torque setting to approximately 2 N·m {20 kgf·cm}.
