When to replace the batteries
When replacing the batteries, do it
quickly. Otherwise, the memory settings
for the clock will be erased. The clock
does not work while replacing the
batteries.
Alkaline batteries will last up to 5 months (a Sony
TV turned On/Off up to approx. 300 times per
day). If the Remote Commander does not operate
properly, the batteries are getting weak and E
appears on the LCD display. When the LCD
display dims or the backlight for the touch keys
grows dim, the batteries are getting weak; replace
them.
Notes on replacing the batteries
• Do not attempt to recharge dry batteries.
• Do not carry dry batteries together with coins or
other metallic objects. This can generate heat if
the positive and negative terminals of the
batteries accidentally come into contact with
metallic objects.
• When you are not going to use the unit for a long
time, remove the batteries to avoid damage from
battery leakage and corrosion.
• Do not use different types of batteries at the same
time.
• When you replace the batteries, replace them
both with new ones.

How to set up the Remote
Commander (On-PC Setup
and On-Remote Setup)
There are two ways to make settings for the
Remote Commander, “On-PC Setup” with the aid
of PC software and “On-Remote Setup” directly on
the Remote Commander.
• On-PC Setup (Recommended)
“On-PC Setup” uses the supplied software for
your PC, “AX Remote Editor,” to set up the
Remote Commander. By following the wizard, it
allows you to easily make all the necessary
settings for the Remote Commander
(components’ preset codes, etc.,). Furthermore,
you can add and customize a range of settings
which are not available with On-Remote Setup.
• On-Remote Setup
“On-Remote Setup” is a way of setting up
directly with the Remote Commander. However,
some advanced settings are not available with
On-Remote setup (see the table below).
IMPORTANT
You cannot use both methods. Once you set
up the Remote Commander by either On-PC
Setup (recommended) or On-Remote Setup,
you cannot make additional settings using
the other method. You can only delete the
entire setup and start over using the other
setup method.

What is the XPRESS function?
An “XPRESS function” is an executable series of
commands that operate several AV components,
just by pressing one key.
For example, you have to perform the following
operations sequentially to watch a DVD using a
TV, receiver/ amplifier, and DVD player.
1. Turn on the TV.
2. Set the input mode of the TV to VIDEO1.
3. Turn on the receiver/amplifier.
4. Set the input selector of the receiver/
amplifier to DVD.
5. Turn on the DVD player.
6. Start DVD playback.
By setting the above commands as an XPRESS
function, you can watch a DVD by simply pressing
one key.
Also, XPRESS function can memorize the status of
power on/off, input selector for each component,
and send a signal to synchronize the status which
you want without reference to the component's
status.
Some XPRESS functions are preset at the factory to
operate Sony brand components (see the table at
right). However, depending on the factory preset
code, they may not necessarily be effective.
