Features
Some of the features that you will enjoy with your new LCD projection TV
include:
❑
WEGA Engine™: Delivers superb picture quality from any video
source by minimizing the signal deterioration caused by digital-toanalog conversion and stabilizing the signal processing. This engine
features unique Sony technology, including:
●
●
●
The first step in the digital processing system, Composite
Component Processor (CCP-X), which enhances input signal-tonoise ratio by chroma decoder digital processing.
DRC® (Digital Reality Creation)-MF V1: Unlike conventional
line doublers, the DRC Multifunction feature replaces the signal’s
NTSC waveform with the near-HD equivalent by digital mapping
processing. The DRC Palette option lets you customize the level of
detail (Reality) and smoothness (Clarity) to create up to three
custom palettes.
Multi-Image Driver (MID™-XU): Allows you to watch two
programs side by side (Twin View®). 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.
❑
Integrated HDTV: You can watch digital television programs and
enjoy the improved audio/video quality offered by these programs.
❑
S-master Full Digital Amplifier: Delivers superb clear dialog and
reproduces the original sound quality while minimizing any sound
fragmentation or jitter noise.
❑
CineMotion®: Using the reverse 3-2 pull down technology, the
CineMotion feature provides smoother picture movement when playing
back movies or other video sources on film.
❑
Twin View®: Using Multi-Image Driver (MID™-XU), Twin View
allows you to watch two programs side by side with the ability to zoom
in on one picture and listen to the program in the selected window. You
can watch pictures from two different sources (1080i, 720p, 480p or
480i) simultaneously.
❑
Memory Stick® Viewer: Allows you to view digital photos (JPEG) and
movies (MPEG1) from Memory Stick media on your LCD projection
TV screen.
❑
Parental Control: V-Chip technology allows parents to block
unsuitable programming from younger viewers.

CableCARD™ slot: 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. (Check with your cable TV
company about CableCARD service details, limitations, pricing, and
availability. For more information about CableCARD in this manual,
see page 56.)
❑
Component Video Inputs: Offers the best video quality for DVD
(480p, 480i) and digital set-top box (1080i, 720p, 480p, 480i)
connections.
❑
S VIDEO Inputs: Provides a high-quality image from connected
equipment.
❑
Favorite Channel Preview: Allows you to preview up to sixteen
favorite channels without leaving the current channel.
❑
Wide Screen Mode: Allows you to watch 4:3 normal broadcasts in
wide screen mode (16:9 aspect ratio).
❑
Steady Sound®: Equalizes volume levels so there is consistent output
between programs and commercials.
❑
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 set top box,
DVD player, and A/V receiver. HDMI supports enhanced, or highdefinition video, plus multi-channel digital audio.

Screen
To minimize reflection, the screen’s surface has a special coating. Read the
instructions “Cleaning the Screen Surface” on page 15 carefully before
cleaning.
Inappropriate cleaning methods could damage the screen’s finish.
Projection lamp
Your LCD projection TV uses a projection lamp as its light source. The
projection lamp is located under the Control Panel cover as noted in the
diagram above. Note the following:
❑
After turning on your LCD projection TV, it may take a while before the
picture appears (1 minute or less).
❑
When the projection lamp wears out, the screen goes dark. Replace the
lamp with a new Sony XL-2100U or XL-2100 (for WE655 series), or
XL-2200 (for WF655 series) replacement lamp (not supplied).
✍ After replacing the lamp, be sure to attach the lamp cover securely;
otherwise, your LCD projection TV will not turn on. For details on lamp
replacement, see “Replacing the Lamp” on page 16.
✍ The light emitted from the lamp is quite bright when your LCD projection
TV is in use. To avoid eye discomfort or injury, do not look into the
housing when the power is on.

Introducing the Sony LCD Projection TV
To enjoy clear pictures
❑ Prevent sunlight or other light sources from shining.
❑
The screen surface is easily scratched. Do not rub, touch, or tap it with a
sharp or abrasive object (see “Cleaning the Screen Surface” below).
On moisture condensation
❑ If your LCD projection TV is moved directly from a cold to a warm
location, is placed in a humid room, or if the room temperature changes
suddenly, the picture may blur or show poor color. This is caused by
moisture condensation on the lenses inside. If this happens, leave the
power on to help the moisture evaporate. When the condensation has
evaporated, the picture of your LCD projection TV will return to
normal.
When not using the LCD Projection TV for a long period of time
❑ Turn off the main power on the front of your LCD projection TV before
going to sleep or going out. Unplug the AC power cord from the outlet if
you anticipate not using the LCD projection TV for more than a week.
When turning off the power
❑ The fan will continue to operate for about two minutes. Allow several
minutes before unplugging from the outlet or switching the breaker off.
Before carrying the LCD Projection TV
❑ Before carrying, unplug the power cord and disconnect all cables.
See page 28 for instructions on how to carry your LCD projection TV.
Cleaning the Screen
Surface
To remove dust on the screen, wipe with soft cloth.
✍ Do not use any type of abrasive pad, alkaline cleaner, scouring powder,
window cleaners or solvent such as alcohol or benzene. Using these
types of products may damage the screen.
✍ To clean the screen, use the cloth lightly moistened with a mild detergent
and water solution. Use gentle pressure when cleaning.

Replacing the Lamp
The projection lamp, which illuminates the picture, has a limited life.
If the screen becomes dark, the color looks unusual, or the LAMP indicator
on the front of the LCD projection TV flashes, it is time to replace the lamp
with a new one (not supplied).
WARNING
Electric appliances can cause fire or high temperature, resulting in injury
or death. Be sure to follow the instructions below.
❑
Use a Sony XL-2100U or XL-2100 (for WE655 series), or XL-2200
(for WF655 series) replacement lamp (not supplied) for replacement.
Use of any other lamp may damage the LCD projection TV.
❑
Do not remove the lamp for any purpose other than replacement. Doing
so may cause injury or fire.
❑
Before replacing the lamp, turn the power off on the main unit. Wait
several minutes, then unplug the power cord. (The cooling fan will
continue to blow for about two minutes after turning the power off.)
❑
Allow the lamp to cool down completely before removing it. The
surface of the lamp remains extremely hot for at least 30 minutes after
the power has been turned off.
❑
Do not put flammable materials and metal objects inside the lamp
receptacle of the LCD projection TV after removing the lamp. Doing so
may cause fire or electrical shock.
❑
To avoid being burned, do not touch the lamp receptacle once the lamp
has been removed.
❑
Mount the new lamp securely. Failure to do so may cause a fire or the
screen to go dark.
❑
Do not touch the glass of the new lamp with your fingers.
✍ Avoid touching the front glass of a new lamp as this may reduce picture
quality or lamp life.

CONTROL S allows you to control your LCD projection TV system and
other Sony equipment with one remote control. In addition to allowing you
to control multiple devices with one remote control, the CONTROL S
feature allows you to always point your remote control at your LCD
projection TV, instead of having to point it at the other equipment, which
might be hidden or out of direct line of sight.
Setting Up the LCD Projection TV
Using CableCARD
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
If you are planning to use a separate cable box for digital cable TV services, you may be able to receive
programming using this TV with the CableCARD instead — except in the following circumstances:
❑ Your cable TV company does not provide CableCARD service in your viewing area.
❑ You want to access your cable TV company’s interactive or advanced features (such as video-on-
demand or, is 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.
Activating
CableCARD Service
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:

2
Turn off the TV.
Insert the CableCARD into the TV’s CableCARD slot.

Functionality
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.
❑

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

analog signal
aspect ratio
A signaling method that uses continuous changes in the amplitude or frequency of an
electronic transmission to convey information.
Refers to the ratio between the width and height of the screen. This LCD projection
TV has a 16:9 (widescreen) aspect ratio, as opposed to a 4:3 aspect ratio.
4:3 aspect ratio
CableCARD
component video
16:9 aspect ratio
The PCMIA shaped card provided by your cable TV company which descrambles the
digitally encrypted cable channels. You should check with your local cable TV
company about CableCARD service.
Component video is sent through three cables: two color shade (chrominance) signals
and one brightness (luminance) signal. Component video achieves greater color
accuracy than composite video or S VIDEO by splitting chrominance into two
separate portions.
composite video
Composite video is sent through a single cable. Composite video combines the color
shade (chrominance) and brightness (luminance) information into one video signal.
digital television (DTV)
A new technology for transmitting and receiving broadcast television signals. DTV
provides higher resolution and improved sound quality over analog television.
Provides an uncompressed, all-digital audio/video interface between this TV and any
HDMI-equipped audio/video component, such as a set-top box, DVD player, and
A/V receiver. HDMI supports enhanced, or high-definition video, plus multi-channel
digital audio.

Radio Frequency. That part of the frequency spectrum that is used to transmit TV and
radio signals.
S VIDEO requires a single cable, which carries the brightness (luminance) and color
(chrominance) signals of the picture separately. S VIDEO provides better resolution
than composite video, which carries the signals together.
VHF (Very High Frequency) is the part of the frequency spectrum from 30 to 300
megahertz. UHF (Ultra High Frequency) is the part of the frequency spectrum from
300 to 3,000 megahertz.
Provides 480 lines of resolution. Displays images using interlaced scanning, which
first transmits all the odd lines on the LCD projection TV screen and then the even
lines.

The compression used by certain digital broadcasts and DVDs may cause your
LCD projection 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

the TV needs service. When lit, indicates that the timer is set (24 or 126). 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 41, you must use a special bi-directional splitter that is designed to work
with your digital cable box. Contact your cable provider for details.
Only analog channels can be recorded to your VCR.

to VCR
The replacement lamp does not ❏
light up
TV cabinet creaks
❏
The screw of the lamp cover may be slanted. Take out the screw, insert it straight
into the screw hole, and then tighten it completely (see page 19 for KDF-WE655
series, see page 22 for KDF-WF655 series).
When the TV is in use, there is a natural rise in temperature, causing the cabinet to
expand or contract and may be accompanied by a slight creaking noise. This is not
a malfunction.
