How to Reduce the Risk of “Image Retention”
on the Screen
Please take the following steps to reduce the risk of causing
image retention:
· When using video games, computers, and similar products
with your projection TV, or viewing a TV station whose
logo always stays on the screen, keep the Brightness and
Picture functions at low settings. (See page 84 for
instructions on adjusting Brightness and Picture settings.)
· View a variety of programming material. Changing the
program material viewed reduces the possibility that a
single image will become imprinted on the screens.
· This TV was designed primarily for viewing TV broadcasts
in wide screen mode (16:9 aspect ratio). Therefore when
viewing conventional (4:3) aspect ratio TV programs,
select Wide Mode settings that fill the image on your
screen. This will reduce the possibility of the gray sidebars
becoming permanently imprinted.
Please see page 84 for instructions on adjusting picture
settings. See pages 59-60 for information about using Wide
Mode.
IMAGE RETENTION IS NOT COVERED BY YOUR WARRANTY
This symbol is intended to alert the user to the
presence of uninsulated “dangerous voltage”
within the product’s enclosure that may be of
sufficient magnitude to constitute a risk of
electric shock to persons.
This symbol is intended to alert the user to the
presence of important operating and maintenance
(servicing) instructions in the literature
accompanying the appliance.
Do not expose the TV to dripping or splashing. Avoid placing
liquid-filled objects, such as vases, on top of the TV.
CAUTION
Note
This digital television is capable of receiving analog basic, digital
basic and digital premium cable television programming by direct
connection to a cable system providing such programming. A
security card provided by your cable operator is required to view
encrypted digital programming. Certain advanced and interactive
digital cable services such as video-on-demand, a cable operator's
enhanced program guide and data-enhanced television services
may require the use of a set-top box. For more information call
your local cable operator.
This television also includes a QAM demodulator which should
allow you to receive unscrambled digital cable television
programming via subscription service to a cable service provider.
Availability of digital cable television programming in your area
depends on the type of programming and signal provided by your
cable service provider.
To prevent electric shock, do not use this polarized AC plug with
an extension cord, receptacle or other outlet unless the blades can
be fully inserted to prevent blade exposure.
CAUTION
If a fixed (non-moving) pattern, such as a station logo, is
left on the screen for long periods of time, especially at a
high brightness or picture setting, the image can be
permanently imprinted onto the screen. These types of
imprints are known as “image retention.”

Introducing the Projection TV
Overview
This chapter describes the contents of the package in which the TV is
shipped and provides an overview of the features of your projection
TV.
Package Contents
Along with your new projection TV, the package contains a remote
control and two AA batteries. No additional cables are included.
These items are all you need to set up and operate the projection TV
in its basic configuration.
Most components (VCRs, DVD players, etc.) come with the necessary
cables to connect them. If you want to set up a complex system, you
may need to buy extra cables, connectors, etc. Be sure to have these
on hand before you start to connect your system.
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 17 and 41.)
❑
Wide Mode: Enables you to resize the picture.
9
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.
❑
Twin View™: Using the Multi-Image Driver (MIDX), Twin View
allows you to watch two programs side by side, with the ability
to zoom in one picture. You can watch pictures from two different
sources (1080i, 720p, 480p, and 480i) simultaneously. (Only the
left Twin View window can display 1080i, 720p, and 480p
sources.)
❑
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.

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.

Using the Memory Stick Viewer
About Memory Stick
Memory Stick (sold separately) is a compact, portable, and versatile
Integrated Circuit recording medium with a data capacity that makes
it perfect for portable applications, such as digital photography.
Memory Stick is specially designed for sharing digital data among
Memory Stick compatible products such as digital cameras and
digital video cameras. Because it is removable, Memory Stick can also
be used for external data storage.
The Memory Stick Viewer on your TV allows you to view files that
are stored on Memory Stick media. You can view:
❑
Digital photos (JPEG files)
❑
Movies (MPEG1 files)
You can also play slide show background music using MP3 files (or
m3u playlists) stored on your Memory Stick.
For more information about handling Memory Stick media, see
“Notes on Using Memory Stick Media” on page 81.
Features
With the Memory Stick Viewer, you can:
❑
View photo (JPEG) and movie (MPEG1) files in a thumbnail
index or Slide Show
❑
Set customized Slide Show options, including transitions and
background audio
❑
Pan, zoom, and rotate photos

Memory Stick PRO media features vary by and are dependent upon
the design of host hardware devices. Memory Stick PRO in this
television has been tested to support up to 1 GB media capacity and
does not support high-speed transfer, MagicGate copyright
protection technology, or access control security features.
Sony cannot guarantee or assure the Memory Stick functionality on
this television in the following cases:
❑
You are using non-Sony brand Memory Stick media.
❑
You are using video or audio clips that have been processed on a
computer.
❑
You are using files that were obtained from the Internet or from a
printed film processing center.
❑
The Memory Stick has been formatted on a personal computer.
SETUP
Sony recommends that you back up all data stored on Memory Stick
media to avoid potential data loss. In the above two cases, in order to
avoid potential data corruption that may occur, be sure to back up
data prior to use with the TV’s Memory Stick Viewer. Sony cannot
accept responsibility in the event that data recorded to Memory Stick
media is lost or damaged. For certain non-Sony brand Memory Stick
media, you can view images, but you cannot rotate, delete or
protect/unprotect images on the television. An error message will
occur if you attempt any of these operations. This is a result of the
unique file directory structure on these particular flash memory
media and is not a malfunction of the television.

The batteries could be weak. Replace the batteries.
Check the orientation of the batteries.
Press the TV FUNCTION button. You may have inadvertently pressed the
SAT/CABLE FUNCTION button, which changes the remote control to SAT or
CABLE mode.
Make sure the TV’s power cord is connected securely to the wall outlet.
Locate the TV at least 3-4 feet away from fluorescent lights.
If you are using the TV to change channels, first press the TV FUNCTION
button.
If you are using another device to change channels, be sure you have not
inadvertently switched your TV from the channel 3 or 4 setting. Use the
Channel Fix option to “fix” the channel based on the hookup you used (see
page 89).
If you are using another device to change channels, be sure to press the
FUNCTION button for that device. For example, if you are using your cable box
to change channels, be sure to press the SAT/CABLE FUNCTION button.
If you replaced the batteries to the remote recently, the code numbers for
the video equipment may need to be reset.
There may be more than one code for the equipment that you are
attempting to operate.
There is a possibility that some non-Sony equipment cannot be operated by
your Sony TV remote.You may need to use the equipment’s original
remote control.

Certain cable TV companies have limitations on the broadcast of digital
cable channels. Check with your cable TV company for more information.
Check with your cable TV company if the channels are scrambled or
encrypted. You will need a CableCARD or a separate set-top box to view
those channels.
Some optional digital cable broadcast formats may not be supported. If
your cable TV company is broadcasting digital signals in unsupported
broadcast formats, you will need a separate set-top box provided by your
cable TV company to view those channels.
The digital cable channel may be set to Hide in the Channel Menu (see
page 90).
Use the Digital Channels feature to search for new digital channels (see
page 89).

Check that the CableCARD is inserted properly (see pages 41-42).
The CableCARD must be activated by your local cable TV provider before
you can receive digital cable TV services. See the activation instructions on
pages 41-42.
Check the Diagnostics and CableCARD menu options (see page 98). (This can
be useful in providing information to an authorized technician or repair
person.)
Contact your cable TV company.

Make sure the Memory Stick is inserted properly (see page 70).
Check the Filter option setting (see page 80).

The maximum number of files the Memory Stick Viewer can display is
2,000 files total, including all JPEG, MPEG1, and MP3 files.
If you are using a Memory Stick with the Memory Select function, try
changing the position of the A/B select switch.
JPEGs captured using a digital video camera may appear to display motion
in full screen. This is a result of the way digital video cameras record still
images, and is not a result of a malfunction with the TV.
The Memory Stick might be locked. Unlock the Memory Stick and try
rotating the image again.
The file might not have information (EXIF data) that is usually generated
when a digital camera records a photo. In this case, it is not possible to save
the rotation.
There might be insufficient space on the Memory Stick to save the rotated
file. Try deleting one or more files and rotating the image again.
These functions are available only for JPEG files.

already set to Stereo, switch to Mono (which may reduce background noise
during weak stereo broadcasts).
If the Speaker option is set to Off and the Audio Out option is set to Fixed (in
order to output the sound to your audio system) use your audio receiver to
adjust the sound (see page 86). Or, to use the TV remote control, set the
Audio Out option to Variable.

This is a normal sound that results from the TV automatically degaussing
each time it is turned on.
The LED (see page 14) blinks when the TV is turned on, then shuts off
when the picture is displayed. If the LED blinks for more than a minute,
this may indicate the TV needs service. When lit, indicates that the timer is
set (page 97). When the timer is set, this LED will remain lit even when the
TV is turned off.
If you are connecting a VCR and digital cable box using a splitter, as
described on page 26, you must use a special bi-directional splitter that is
designed to work with your digital cable box. Contact your cable TV
company for details.
Only analog channels can be recorded to your VCR.
