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
• 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.
• 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.
Using a Wall-Mount Bracket
All models can be mounted on a wall using a
Wall-Mount Bracket (not supplied). Models
52 inch and larger (measured diagonally) will
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. 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.
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.
• 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.
