Introducing Your New BRAVIA®


Welcome to the World of BRAVIA®

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


Safety Booklet


Quick Setup Guide

Contains precautionary

Provides TV setup information with sample
measures to keep you and connection diagrams and TV features.
your TV safe. Read this
information prior to setting up
your TV.


Operating Instructions

Provides the most detailed
information to operate your
TV.


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 BRAVIA TV, you need
access to HD programming. Your BRAVIA 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™ player or other HD compatible external equipment
Contact your cable or satellite provider for information on upgrading to HD programming.


The Four Steps to a Stunning HD Experience

Set, Sound, Source, and Setup
Along with your BRAVIA TV set, a complete HD system requires an HD sound system, a
source of HD programming, 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 Sync: Allows your BRAVIA TV to communicate with other Sony
equipment supporting the Control for HDMI function (page 21).
. PIP (Picture in Picture): You can work on your PC and watch your favorite TV
program simultaneously (page 22).
. Favorites: Your favorite channels and inputs are at your finger tips for easy
access (page 22).
. Auto Wide Mode: Set your TV to automatically adjust the screen based on the
signal resolution (page 23).
. Input Selection: Allows you to easily switch between the connected equipment
(page 24).
Introducing Your New BRAVIA®


Getting Started


Setting Up Your TV

The TV is packaged with a detached Table-Top Stand so you can mount the 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. Use a
Philips screwdriver and the supplied screws to complete the task. Look for the attachment
instruction 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.
• Placement of the hands carrying the TV is very important for safety and to avoid damage.
• Adequate ventilation is necessary (see page 13).
• 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 on the TV.
• For additional safety information, read the supplied Safety and Regulatory Booklet.
• 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 is available on page 2 of this manual. For
details on securing the TV and items listed above, see page 14.

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.
Angle braces

2
Secure the TV to the stand.
Use the optional hardware listed below (not supplied):

• M4 × 14 mm anchor bolt and M4 nut (screwed into the TV’s Table-Top Stand).
• A screw or similar (attach it to the TV stand).
• Rope or chain (strong enough to support the weight of the TV). Make sure that there is no
excess slack in the rope or chain.
Getting StartedAn alternative way to secure the TV is with an optional Sony Support Belt Kit.

Anchor the TV to the wall.
Use the hardware listed below (not supplied).

• Two anchor bolts, size M4 × 10-12 mm (model KDL-26L5000) or M6 × 10-12 mm (model
KDL-32L5000). Screw the bolts into the top-most wall-mount holes located on the rear of
the TV.
• Rope or chain (attach to one anchor bolt).
• Wall-anchor (attach to the wall stud) strong enough to support the weight of the TV (pass
the rope through the wall-anchor, then attach to the other anchor bolt).

• Measure 2 provides minimal protection against the TV toppling over. For further protection,
follow all three measures recommended above.
• If an electric screwdriver is used, set the torque to tighten at approximately 1.5 N·m {15 kgf·cm}.
