My Sony is just two years old and the picture went out completely. I took it to a Sony authorized repair facility and they cannot fix it. Nice picture when it works Unreliable and expensive to fix. Bought March 2006 and Aug 2007........If I had not bought a 5 year additional warrantee plan for $400, I would be junking this TV.

To obtain the best picture, do not expose the screen to direct illumination or direct sunlight. It is recommended to use spot lighting directed down from the ceiling or to cover the windows that face the screen with opaque drapery. It is desirable to install the TV in a room where the floor and walls are not of a reflective material. See pages 13 and 14 for more information on the installation.
This TV incorporates High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) technology. HDMI, the HDMI logo and High-Definition Multimedia Interface are trademarks or registered trademarks of HDMI Licensing LLC.

This digital television is capable of receiving analog basic, digital basic and digital premium cable television programming by direct connection to a cable system providing such programming. A security card provided by your cable operator is required to view encrypted digital programming. Certain advanced and interactive digital cable services such as video-on-demand, a cable operators enhanced program guide and data-enhanced television services may require the use of a set-top box. For more information call your local cable operator.

The cooling fan will continue to operate for about two minutes. Allow several minutes before unplugging from the outlet or switching the breaker off.

On moisture condensation

If your TV is moved directly from a cold to a warm location or is placed in a humid room, or if the room temperature changes suddenly, the picture may blur or show poor color. This is caused by moisture condensation on the lenses inside. Wait a few hours to let the moisture evaporate before turning on the TV. When the condensation has evaporated, the picture will return to normal.

Screen

To minimize reflection, the screen surface has a special coating. Inappropriate cleaning methods could damage the screen surface. Special care is required.
Cleaning the Screen Surface
Dust and dirt on the screen can affect the picture quality. To dust off the screen use a soft cloth. Be sure to follow the cleaning instruction on page 6 for stubborn stains and dirt.
