Safety Information
Power Sources
Overloading
Mains lead protection
This unit is designed to operate on a 220–
240 V AC supply only. Take care not to
connect too many appliances to the same
mains socket as this could result in fire or
electric shock.
Pull out the mains lead by the plug. Do
not pull on the mains lead itself.
Wiring
Unplug the mains lead when wiring cables. Be sure to unplug the
mains lead for your safety, when hooking up.
Mains
Cleaning
Do not use a poor fitting mains socket. Insert the
plug fully into the mains. If it is loose, it may cause
arcing and result in fire. Contact your electrician to
have the mains socket changed.
Clean the mains plug regularly. If the plug is
covered with dust and it picks up moisture, its
insulation may deteriorate and result in fire.
Unplug the mains plug and clean it regularly.
Moisture
Lightning storms
Do not touch the mains lead with a wet hand.
If you plug/unplug the mains lead with a wet
hand, it may cause electric shock.
For your own safety, do not touch any
part of the unit, mains lead, or aerial lead
during lightning storms.
Use
Damage requiring service
Ventilation holes
If the surface of the unit cracks, do not touch it until you have
unplugged the mains lead. Otherwise electric shock may result.
Do not insert anything in the ventilation holes. If
metal or something flammable is inserted in
these holes, it may result in fire or electric shock.

Safety Information
Heat
Mains lead
Do not touch the surface of the unit. It remains hot, even after the
unit has been turned off for some time.
If you damage the mains lead, it may
result in fire or electric shock.
• Do not pinch, bend, or twist the mains
lead excessively. The core lines may
be exposed or cut, causing a shortcircuit which may induce fire or
electric shock.
• Do not convert or damage the mains
lead.
• Do not put anything heavy on the
mains lead. Do not pull the mains
lead.
• Keep the mains lead away from heat sources.
• Be sure to grasp the plug when disconnecting the mains lead.
If the mains lead is damaged, stop using it and ask your dealer or
Sony service centre to exchange it.
Cleaning the screen surface
The screen surface is finished with a special coating to prevent
strong light reflections. Be sure to observe the following
precautions to avoid damaging the finish.
• To remove dust from the screen surface, wipe gently with a soft
cloth. If dust is persistent, wipe with a soft cloth slightly
moistened with a diluted mild detergent solution. You can wash
and repeatedly use the soft cloth.
• Never use any type of abrasive pad, alkaline/acid cleaner,
scouring powder, or strong solvent such as alcohol, benzine or
thinner.
When not in use
For environmental and safety
reasons, it is recommended that the
unit be switched off when not in
use – not left in standby mode.
Disconnect it from the mains.
Cable wiring
Take care not to catch your feet on the cables. It may damage the
unit.

optional components at least 30 cm away from the unit. If a VCR is
installed in front of the unit or beside the unit, the picture may
become distorted.

Precautions
Air circulation is blocked.
Wall
Viewing the TV comfortably
• To view the TV comfortably, the recommended viewing position is from four to seven times the screen’s vertical length away
from the TV.
• View the TV in moderate light, as viewing the TV in poor light taxes your eyes. Watching the screen continuously for long
periods of time can also tax your eyes.
Installing the unit
Use the specified wall-mount bracket or stand.
• Do not install the unit in places subject to extreme temperature, for example in direct sunlight, or near a radiator, or heating vent.
If the unit is exposed to extreme temperature, the unit may heat up and this may cause deformation of the casing or cause the
unit to malfunction.
• To obtain a clear picture, do not expose the screen to direct illumination or direct sunlight. If possible, use spot lighting directed
down from the ceiling.
• The unit is not disconnected from the mains when the unit is switched off. To disconnect the unit completely, pull the plug from
the mains.
Volume adjustment
• Adjust the volume so as not to trouble your neighbours. Sound carries very easily at night time. Therefore, closing the windows
or using headphones is suggested.
• When using headphones, adjust the volume so as to avoid excessive levels, as hearing damage may result.
Handling the remote control
• Handle the remote control with care. Do not drop or step on it, or spill liquid of any kind onto it.
• Do not place the remote control in a location near a heat source, or in a place subject to direct sunlight, or in a damp room.
Handling and cleaning the screen surface of the unit
To avoid screen degradation, follow the advice given below. Do not push on the screen or scratch it with hard objects, or throw
anything at it. The screen may be damaged.
• Be sure to unplug the mains lead before cleaning the unit.
• Do not touch the display panel after operating the unit continuously for a long period as the display panel becomes hot.
• We recommend that the screen surface be touched as little as possible.
• Clean the screen with a soft cloth.
• Never use any type of abrasive pad, scouring powder, or solvent, such as alcohol or benzine. Using such materials may result in
damage to the screen surface.
Cleaning the cabinet
• Be sure to unplug the mains lead before cleaning the cabinet.
• Clean the cabinet with a soft cloth.
• Note that material deterioration or screen coating degradation may occur if the unit is exposed to a volatile solvent, such as
alcohol, thinner, benzine or insecticide, or if prolonged contact is maintained with rubber or vinyl materials.
• The ventilation holes can accumulate dust over a period of time. To ensure proper ventilation, we recommend removing the dust
periodically (once a month) using a vacuum cleaner.
(continued)
Precautions
9
On the PDP (Plasma Display Panel)
On image
• Please note that the PDP screen is made with high-precision technology. However, black points or bright points of light (red,
blue, or green) may appear constantly on the PDP screen, and irregular coloured stripes or brightness may appear on the PDP
screen. This is not a malfunction.
• With extensive use of this TV set in 4:3 mode, the 4:3 screen area might become darker within a 16:9 panel. To avoid this
problem, the “Smart” picture mode should be used (see page 26).
On image retention
• If the following images are displayed for an extended period time, image retention (afterimage) in areas of the screen may result
due to the characteristics of the Plasma Display Panel.
– Black bars at the top and bottom that appear with a wide video source (Letterbox picture).
– Black bars to the left and right that appear with a 4:3 video source (conventional TV broadcasts).
– Video game sources
– DVD on-screen menu displays
– On-screen menus, channel numbers, etc., of connected equipment such as Set top box, Cable modem, VCR, etc.
The risk of this is higher if the set is in “Live” mode or has a high contrast setting. This image cannot be removed once burnt
onto the screen. To avoid the risk of image retention do not leave the TV set operating on such a picture, or programme for a
long time, use the “Screen Saver” function (page 28) or lower the contrast setting. Repeated extended daily usage of the same
image, or programme can also result in this occurrence. IMAGE RETENTION IS NOT COVERED BY THE SONY
WARRANTY.
• To reduce image retention, this TV set has the “Screen Saver” function. The default setting of the “Orbit” function in “Screen
Saver” is “On” (page 28).
• The “Screen Saver” function prevents and reduces image retention. For more details, see page 28.
On altitude
When used at an altitude of greater than 1900m or 6248 feet (air pressure less than 800hPa), this Plasma Display Panel may generate
a low buzzing sound as a result of the difference between the interior and exterior air pressure of the panels. This is not considered
a defect and is not covered under by the Sony Warranty. This buzzing sound is an inherent characteristic of any Plasma Display
Panel.
