not, it may result in electric shock.
AC power cord
If you damage the AC power
cord, it may result in fire or
electric shock.
• Do not pinch, bend, or twist the

lines may be bared and cut, and
cause short-circuit, resulting in
fire or electric shock.
• Do not convert or damage the
AC power cord.
• Do not put anything heavy on
the AC power cord. Do not pull
the AC power cord.
• Keep the AC power cord away
from heat sources.
• Be sure to grasp the plug when disconnecting the AC

the Plasma TV is not left in standby mode when not in use.
Disconnect from the AC power outlet.
Cable wiring
Take care not to catch your feet on the cables. It may damage
the Plasma TV.
Installation
Do not install optional components too close to the Plasma
TV. Keep optional components at least 30 cm away from the
Plasma TV. If a VCR is installed in front or beside the Plasma
TV, the picture may distort.
Heat
Do not touch the surface of the Plasma TV. It remains hot,
even for some time after the Plasma TV is turned off.
Precautions
On viewing the Plasma TV comfortably
• To view the Plasma TV comfortably, the recommended
viewing position is from four to seven times of the screen’s
vertical length away from the Plasma TV.
• View the Plasma TV in a moderate light room, as viewing
the Plasma TV in poor light taxes your eyes. And watching
the screen continuously long times taxes your eyes, too.
On installing the Plasma TV
• Use the specified wall-mount bracket or stands.
• Do not install the Plasma TV in places subject to extreme
temperature, for example in direct sunlight, or near a
radiator, or heating vent. If the Plasma TV is exposed to
extreme temperature, the Plasma TV may heat up and it
may cause deformations of the casing or malfunctions.
• Do not install the Plasma TV in a place exposed to direct
air conditioning. If the Plasma TV is installed in such a
location, moisture may condense on the glass or PDP panel
inside the Plasma TV. It may cause a malfunction.
• After transporting the Plasma TV directly from a cold to a
warm location, or if the room temperature has changed
suddenly, pictures may be blurred or show poor color over
portions of the picture. This is because moisture has
condensed on the glass or PDP panel inside the Plasma TV.
Let the moisture evaporate before using the Plasma TV.
• To obtain a clear picture, do not expose the screen to direct
illumination or direct sunlight. If possible, use spot lighting
direct down from the ceiling.
On adjusting volume
• Adjust the volume so as not to trouble neighbors. Sound
carries very easily at night time. Therefore, closing the
windows or using headphones is suggested.
• When using headphones, adjust the volume so as to avoid
excessive levels, as hearing damage may result.
On image retention
• If the following images are displayed for an extended
period time, image retention (afterimage) in areas of the
screen may result due to the characteristics of the Plasma
Display Panel.
– Black bars at the top and bottom that appear with a wide
video source (Letterbox picture).
– Black bars to the left and right that appear with a 4:3
video source (conventional TV broadcasts).
– Video game sources
– PC images
– DVD on-screen menu displays
– On-screen menus, channel numbers, etc., of connected
equipment such as Set top box, Cable modem, VCR, etc.
The risk of this is higher if the set is in “Dynamic” mode or
has a high contrast setting. This image cannot be removed
once burnt onto the screen. To avoid the risk of occurrence
do not leave the TV set operating on such a picture, or
program for a long time, use the “Screen Saver” function or
lower the contrast setting. Repeated extended daily usage
of the same image, or program can also result in this
occurrence. IMAGE RETENTION IS NOT COVERED
BY THE SONY WARRANTY.
• To reduce image retention, this Plasma TV has the “Screen
Saver” function. The default setting of the “Orbit” function
in “Screen Saver” is “On”.

On the PDP (Plasma Display Panel)
Please note that the PDP screen is made with high-precision
technology. However, black points or bright points of light
(red, blue, or green) may appear constantly on the PDP
screen, and irregular colored stripes or brightness may appear
on the PDP screen. This is not a malfunction.
On handling the remote control
• Handle the remote control with care. Do not drop or step on
it, or spill liquid of any kind.
• Do not place the remote control in a location near heat
source, or in a place subject to direct sunlight, or in a damp
room.
On handling and cleaning the screen surface
of the Plasma TV
The screen of this Plasma TV has an anti-reflection screen
coating. To avoid screen degradation, follow the points
mentioned below. Do not push on or scratch with hard
objects, or throw anything at the screen. The screen may be
damaged.
• Be sure to unplug the AC power cord connected to the
Plasma TV from the AC power outlet before cleaning.
• Do not touch the display panel after operating continuously
for a long period as the display panel becomes hot.
• The screen of this Plasma TV has an anti-reflection screen
coating. We recommend not to touch much of the screen
surface.
• Clean the screen with the supplied cleaning cloth or a soft
cloth lightly moistened with a mild detergent solution.
• Never use any type of abrasive pad, scouring powder, or
solvent, such as alcohol or benzine. This type of contact
may result in damage to the screen surface.
On cleaning the cabinet
• Be sure to unplug the AC power cord connected to the
Plasma TV from the AC power outlet before cleaning.
• Clean the cabinet with the supplied cleaning cloth or a soft
cloth lightly moistened with a mild detergent solution.
• Note that material deterioration or screen coating
degradation may occur if the Plasma TV is exposed to a
volatile solvent, such as alcohol, thinner, benzine or
insecticide, or if prolonged contact is maintained with
rubber or vinyl materials.
