– Disconnect the AC power cord from the AC power
outlet before working on or moving the TV set.

Broken pieces:
• Do not throw anything at the TV set. The screen glass may
break by the impact and cause serious injury.
• If the surface of the TV set cracks, do not touch it until you
have unplugged the AC power cord. Otherwise electric
shock may result.
When not in use
• If you will not be using the TV set for several days, the TV
set should be disconnected from the AC power for
environmental and safety reasons.
• As the TV set is not disconnected from the AC power
when the TV set is just turned off, pull the plug from the
AC power outlet to disconnect the TV set completely.
• However, some TV sets may have features that require the
TV set to be left in standby to work correctly.
For children
• Do not allow children to climb on the TV set.
• Keep small accessories out of the reach of children, so that
they are not mistakenly swallowed.
If the following problems occur...
Turn off the TV set and unplug the AC power cord
immediately if any of the following problems occur.
Ask your dealer or Sony service centre to have it
checked by qualified service personnel.
When:
– AC power cord is damaged.
– Poor fitting of AC power outlet.
– TV set is damaged by being dropped, hit or having
something thrown at it.
– Any liquid or solid object falls through openings in the
cabinet.
Precautions
Viewing the TV
• View the TV in moderate light, as viewing the TV in poor
light or during long period of time, strains your eyes.
• When using headphones, adjust the volume so as to avoid
excessive levels, as hearing damage may result.
LCD Screen
• Although the LCD screen is made with high-precision
technology and 99.99% or more of the pixels are effective,
black dots may appear or bright points of light (red, blue,
or green) may appear constantly on the LCD screen. This
is a structural property of the LCD screen and is not a
malfunction.
• Do not push or scratch the front filter, or place objects on
top of this TV set. The image may be uneven or the LCD
screen may be damaged.
• If this TV set is used in a cold place, a smear may occur in
the picture or the picture may become dark. This does not
indicate a failure. These phenomena disappear as the
temperature rises.
• Ghosting may occur when still pictures are displayed
continuously. It may disappear after a few moments.
• The screen and cabinet get warm when this TV set is in
use. This is not a malfunction.
• The LCD screen contains a small amount of liquid crystal.
Mercury is sometimes contained depending on the kind of
fluorescent tubes. Follow your local ordinances and
regulations for disposal.
Handling and cleaning the screen surface/cabinet of
the TV set
Be sure to unplug the AC power cord connected to the TV set
from AC power outlet before cleaning.
To avoid material degradation or screen coating degradation,
observe the following precautions.
• To remove dust from the screen surface/cabinet, wipe gently
with a soft cloth. If dust is persistent, wipe with a soft cloth
slightly moistened with a diluted mild detergent solution.
• Never use any type of abrasive pad, alkaline/acid cleaner,
scouring powder, or volatile solvent, such as alcohol,
benzene, thinner or insecticide. Using such materials or
maintaining prolonged contact with rubber or vinyl
materials may result in damage to the screen surface and
cabinet material.
• When adjusting the angle of the TV set, move it slowly so
as to prevent the TV set from moving or slipping off from
its table stand.
Optional Equipment
Keep optional components or any equipment emitting
electromagnetic radiation away from the TV set. Otherwise
picture distortion and/or noisy sound may occur.
