USE

For the TV with a three-wire grounding type AC
power cord plug (Class 1 unit)

This TV must be connected to an AC power outlet
with a protective earthing connection.

AC power cord


If you damage the AC power cord, it may result in a fire or an electric
shock. If the AC power cord is damaged, stop using it and ask your dealer
or Sony service center to exchange it.

s
Do not place the TV where the power cord is subject to wear or
abuse.

s
Do not pinch, bend, or twist the cord excessively. The core lines may
be bared and cut, and cause a short-circuit, resulting in a fire or an
electric shock.
s
Do not convert or damage the power cord.
s
Do not allow anything to rest on or roll over

the power cord.
s
Do not pull the power cord.
s
Do not move the TV with the power cord

plugged in.
s
Keep the power cord away from heat sources.
s
Be sure to grasp the plug when disconnecting


the power cord.

Wall outlet

Do not use a poor fitting outlet.
Insert the plug fully into the outlet. If it is loose, it may
cause arcing and result in a fire.
Contact your electrician to have the outlet changed.



Wiring

For your safety, unplug the AC power cord when wiring cables.

Cable wiring

Take care not to catch your feet on the cables. It may damage the TV.

Electric shock

Do not touch the AC power cord or the TV with a wet
hand. If you plug/unplug the AC power cord from the
TV with a wet hand, it may cause electric shock.

Lightning


For added protection for this TV during a lightning storm, or when it is left
unattended and unused for long periods of time, unplug it from the wall
outlet and disconnect the antenna. This will prevent damage to the TV due
to lightning and power line surges.

ANTENNA
Outdoor Antenna Grounding

If an outdoor antenna is installed, follow the precautions below. An
outdoor antenna system should not be located in the vicinity of overhead
power lines or other electric light or power circuits, or where it can come
in contact with such power lines or circuits.

WHEN INSTALLING AN OUTDOOR ANTENNA SYSTEM,
EXTREME CARE SHOULD BE TAKEN TO KEEP FROM
CONTACTING SUCH POWER LINES OR CIRCUITS AS CONTACT
WITH THEM IS ALMOST INVARIABLY FATAL.

Be sure the antenna system is grounded so as to provide some protection
against voltage surges and built-up static charges.

Section 810 of the National Electrical Code (NEC) in the USA and Section
54 of the Canadian Electrical Code in Canada provides information with
respect to proper grounding of the mast and supporting structure,
grounding of the lead-in wire to an antenna discharge unit, size of

grounding conductors, location of antenna discharge unit, connection to
grounding electrodes, and requirements for the grounding electrode.

Welcome to the World of

Thank you for purchasing this Sony LCD Digital Color Television. This
manual is for models KDL-23S2000, KDL-26S2000, KDL-32S2000, KDL40S2000
and KDL-46S2000. The packing box contains accessories that are
listed on page 46.

For optimum picture performance, your new BRAVIA TV is capable of
receiving high definition programming through its integrated tuner. It is also
capable of receiving HDTV content from a cable or satellite box via the
video inputs (HDMI and Y/PB/PR component video; see page 15).

Connecting the TV

To display clear, crisp pictures, your TV must be connected properly. To
properly connect your TV, follow the basic connections provided in this
section. Advanced connection examples are provided in the separate Quick
Setup Guide accompanied with your TV. The Quick Setup Guide provides a
variety of optional equipment connection diagrams.

It is strongly recommended that you connect the antenna/cable input using the
supplied 75-ohm coaxial cable to receive optimum picture quality. A 300-ohm
twin lead cable can be easily affected by radio frequency, resulting in signal
deterioration.

When the antenna/cable connection is done, you must perform an Initial Setup
so your TV will create a list of channels you can view (see page 18). After you
can receive and view programming you should select the proper Wide Mode
setting to display the picture in your preferred aspect ratio. See “Changing the
Wide Screen Mode” on pages 21 and 29.

Cable System Connecting a cable system or an external VHF/UHF antenna to the
and/or VHF/UHF
Antenna System
VHF/UHF input will allow you to enjoy high definition and standard
definition digital programming (if available in your area) along with the
standard definition analog programming.
This TV is capable of receiving unscrambled digital programming for
both cable (QAM and 8VSB) and external VHF/UHF antenna (ATSC).
