Product Support Preferences Settings Picture & Display Sound Channel & Inputs Network TV 5 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 taped to the TV unit. 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 damages. • Ensure your TV has adequate ventilation, see page 15. • 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. • Read the supplied Safety Booklet for additional safety information. • When cable connection is completed, be sure to secure the TV to a stable surface or mount it to a wall. The designated Sony wall-mount bracket model and TV stand model name(s) are available under the “Other Information” section of Operating Instructions. For details on securing the TV, see page 16. 6 Using a Wall-Mount Bracket All models except the 52 inch (measured diagonally) model can be mounted to a wall using the Wall-Mount Bracket (not supplied) out of the box as packaged. If you are mounting the 52 inch model to a wall, remove the Table-Top Stand. For removing the Table-Top Stand, refer to the instructions attached to the TV. Sony strongly recommends that you use the Wall-Mount Bracket model designed for your TV (see page 45) and that wall-mounting of your TV should be performed by a Sony dealer or licensed contractor. • Follow the instruction guide provided with the Wall-Mount Bracket for your model. You may also need to refer to the online Reference Book for additional information for your TV 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. (Do not use the screws that are intended for the Table-Top Stand attachment.) The supplied M6 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 with the bracket may result in internal damage to the TV set or cause it to fall, etc. 8-12 mm M6 screw (supplied with the Wall-Mount Bracket) Mounting Hook Rear of the TV set • Be sure to store the unused screws and Table-Top Stand in a safe place until you are ready to attach the Table-Top Stand. Keep the screws away from small children. When you are using the Table-Top Stand, be sure to read page 17. 7 Getting Started Prepare the TV for the Wall-Mount Bracket before making cable connections.
