Getting Started
Setting Up Your TV
Some TV models are 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.
Getting Started
•
•
•
•
Ensure your TV has adequate ventilation, see page 18.
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.
7
Attaching the Table-Top Stand
Refer to the supplied Table-Top Stand leaflet for proper attachment.
• Do not put stress on the LCD panel or the frame around the screen.
• Be careful to not pinch your hands or the AC power cord when you install the TV set to the TableTop Stand.
1 Place the TV set on the Table-Top Stand.
Guide pins
• Align the TV from the top, slide it in until the guide pins cannot be seen.
2 Fix the TV to the Table-Top Stand using the supplied screws. The arrow marks
indicate the location of the screw holes used for securing the Table-Top Stand.
• If using an electric screwdriver, set the torque at approximately 1.5 N·m {15 kgf·cm}.
8
Detaching the Table-Top Stand from the TV
To detach the Table-Top Stand from the TV, remove the screws
fixed in step 2.
9
Getting Started
• Do not remove the Table-Top Stand for any reason other than to install corresponding
accessories on the TV.
• When removing the Table-Top Stand from the TV, lay the display face down on a stable work
surface that is larger than the TV.
• To prevent damaging the surface of the LCD display, make sure to place a soft cloth on the work
surface.
• When installing the TV on a wall, remove the screws from the rear of the TV. Be sure to store the
removed screws in a safe place, keeping them away from children.
• When attaching the Table-Top Stand again, be sure to fasten the screws (previously removed)
to the original holes on the rear of the TV.
Adjusting the viewing angle of the
TV (except KDL-60EX645)
This TV can be adjusted within the angles as illustrated.
x Angle Adjustment (Swivel)
• When adjusting the angle, hold the stand with one hand to avoid having the stand slip or TV tip

18
Securing the TV
Sony strongly recommends taking measures to prevent the TV from toppling
over. Unsecured TVs may topple and result in property damage, serious bodily
injury or even death.
Preventing the TV from Toppling
❑
❑
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
Consider the following measures when securing your TV to a TV stand (not supplied).
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.

• M4 machine screw (screwed into the TV’s Table-Top Stand).
• A screw or similar (attach it to the TV stand).

no excess slack in the rope or chain.
An alternative way to secure the TV is with an optional Sony Support Belt Kit.

• Securing the TV to the stand without securing the TV and the stand to the wall provides minimum
protection against the TV toppling over. For further protection, be sure to follow the three
measures recommended.

Bundling the cables
Before bundling the cables, remove the cable holder from the AC cover. Reuse the
cable holder to bundle the other cables.

Using a Wall-Mount Bracket
Your TV can be mounted on a wall using a Wall-Mount Bracket (not supplied) out of the
box as packaged. Some larger size TV may require removing the Table-Top Stand; refer
to the instructions provided with the TV.
Prepare the TV for the Wall-Mount Bracket before making cable connections.
For product protection and safety reasons, Sony strongly recommends that you
use the Wall-Mount Bracket designed for your TV and the installation should be
performed by a Sony dealer or licensed contractor.
• Follow the instruction guide provided with the Wall-Mount Bracket for your model.
Sufficient expertise is required in installing this TV, especially to determine the strength
of the wall for withstanding the TV’s weight.
• Be sure to use the screws supplied with the Wall-Mount Bracket when attaching the
mounting hooks to the TV set.
The supplied screws are designed so that they are 8 mm to 12 mm in length when
measured from the attaching surface of the mounting hook.
The diameter and length of the screws differ depending on the Wall-Mount Bracket
model. Use of screws other than those supplied may result in internal damage to the
TV set or cause it to fall, etc.

Condition
Explanation/Solution
General
TV screen feels warm
• Due to the thin profile of this television, the heat generated by the
LCD panel backlight and supporting electronics will be more
noticeable. This is normal operation and not a cause for concern.
Wide Mode changes
automatically
• The current Wide Mode setting is automatically replaced with the
4:3 Default setting when you change the channel or video input,
if 4:3 Default in the Screen settings is set to other than Off. If you
want to lock in Wide Mode selected with WIDE on the remote
control, set 4:3 Default to Off in the Screen settings (see page
53).
• Check the Auto Wide option in the Screen settings (see page
53).
Suddenly the picture
gets smaller
• The picture gets smaller during the commercials due to the
method in which the provider broadcasts their content. When HD
content channels switch to SD content (commercials), the picture
may be small with a black border.
• Auto Wide will not expand the picture during these content
changes since the content information is regulated by the
channel signal provider. You can manually change the Wide
Mode if you prefer (see page 33). This setting will remain in
effect until you change the channel or input or manually change
the Wide Mode again.
“Black box” on screen
• You have selected a text option and no text is available (see
page 61). To turn off this feature, set the CC Display option to
Off. If you were trying to select closed captioning, select CC1
instead of Text1-4.
Black bands appear at
the edges of the screen
• Some wide screen programs are filmed in aspect ratios that are
greater than 16:9 (this is especially common with theatrical
releases). Your TV will show these programs with black bands at
the top and bottom of the screen. For more details, check the
documentation that came with your DVD/Blu-ray (or contact your
program provider).
• Programs in 4:3 aspect ratio will have bands on left and right
sides of the screen.
• Programs broadcast in HD formats (720p and 1080i) with 4:3
content will commonly have black bands on the left and right
sides of the screen which are added by the broadcaster (see
image on left).
• Auto Wide will not expand the picture when the black bands on
the sides of the screen are added by the broadcaster. You can
manually change the Wide Mode to Wide Zoom, or Zoom to fill
the screen, which will remain in effect until you change the
channel or input or manually change the Wide Mode again.
