Welcome to the World of BRA VIA ®

Thank you for choosing this Sony BRAVIA® high-definition television. Use the documentation listed below to get the most out of your TV.

Safety Booklet

Contains precautionary measures to keep you and your TV safe. Read this information prior to setting up your TV.

Operating Instructions

Provides the most detailed information to operate your

TV.

Quick Setup Guide

Provides TV setup information with sample connection diagrams.

Experiencing Stunning HD with Your BRAVIA

The quality of the image you see on your BRAVIA TV is only as good as the quality of the signal it receives. To experience the stunning detail of your new BRAVlA TV, you need access to HD programming. Your BRAVlA TV can receive and display HD programming from:

Over-the-air broadcasting via HD-quality antenna

• HD cable subscription

• HD satellite subscription

• Blu-ray Disc

TM player or other HD compatible external equipment

Contact your cable, satellite or HD service provider for information on upgrading to HD programming.

The Four Steps to a Stunning HD Experience

Set, Source, Sound, and Setup

Along with your BRAVIA TV set, a complete HD system requires a source of HD programming, an HD sound system, and a proper connection setup. Refer to the Quick

Setup Guide, enclosed separately, for connecting optional equipment.

You can enjoy crisp, clear images, smooth movement, and high-impact visuals from

1080 HD signals as shown here.

When you compare a high-definition signal to a standard analog signal, you will notice a big difference in picture quality. If black bars appear as shown here, press WIDE on the remote control to fill the screen.

TV Feature Highlights

Your BRAVIA comes with many convenient features, such as:

BRAVIA ®

SynoTM:

Getting Started

Setting Up Your TV

Your TV is packaged with a detached Table-Top Stand so you can mount your TV to a wall right away. If you are not mounting the TV to a wall, you will need to attach the Table-Top Stand. You will need a Phillips screwdriver and the supplied screws to complete the task. Look for the attachment instructions provided with the TV.

Be sure to consider the following while setting up your TV:

• Disconnect all cables when carrying the TV.

• Carry the TV with the adequate number of people; larger size TVs require two or more people.

• Correct hand placement while carrying the TV is very important for safety and to avoid damage.

KDL-32BX300

• Ensure your TV has adequate ventilation, see page 14.

• For best picture quality, do not expose the screen to direct illumination or sunlight.

• Avoid installing the TV in a room with reflective wall and floor materials.

• Avoid moving the TV from a cold area to a warm area. Sudden room temperature changes may cause moisture condensation.

This may cause the TV to show poor picture and/or poor color.

Should this occur, allow moisture to evaporate completely before powering the TV on.

Getting Started

Setting Up Your TV

Your TV is packaged with a detached Table-Top Stand so you can mount your TV to a wall right away. If you are not mounting the TV to a wall, you will need to attach the Table-Top Stand. You will need a Phillips screwdriver and the supplied screws to complete the task. Look for the attachment instructions provided with the TV.

Be sure to consider the following while setting up your TV:

• Disconnect all cables when carrying the TV.

• Carry the TV with the adequate number of people; larger size TVs require two or more people.

• Correct hand placement while carrying the TV is very important for safety and to avoid damage.

KDL-32BX300

• Ensure your TV has adequate ventilation, see page 14.

• For best picture quality, do not expose the screen to direct illumination or sunlight.

• Avoid installing the TV in a room with reflective wall and floor materials.

• Avoid moving the TV from a cold area to a warm area. Sudden room temperature changes may cause moisture condensation.

This may cause the TV to show poor picture and/or poor color.

Should this occur, allow moisture to evaporate completely before powering the TV on.
