Welcome to the World of

®

Thank you for purchasing this Sony LCD Digital Color Television. This manual is for model KDL-22L4000. Be sure to check the supplied

accessories against the list on page 41.

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.

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, maintaining 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

24, 29 and 30).

Securing the TV

Preventing the TV from Toppling

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.

❑ Secure the TV to a wall and/or stand.

❑ Do not allow children to play or climb on furniture and TV sets.

❑ Avoid placing or hanging items on the TV.

❑ 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.

❑ Install the TV where it cannot be pulled, pushed, or knocked over.

❑ Route all AC power cords and connecting cables so that they are not accessible to curious children.

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.

Secure the TV to the Stand.

Use the optional hardware listed below (not supplied):

• M6 × 12mm 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.

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 screen and ability to show very fine detail, and is normal for certain digitally recorded programs.

Check the polarity of the batteries or replace the batteries.

Point the remote control at the remote control sensor of the TV.
