Viewing the TV
• Some people may experience discomfort
(such as eye strain, fatigue, or nausea)
while watching 3D video images or
playing 3D video games. Sony
recommends that all viewers take regular
breaks while watching 3D video images or
playing 3D video games. The length and
frequency of necessary breaks will vary
from person to person. You must decide
what works best. If you experience any
discomfort, you should stop watching the
3D video images or playing 3D video
games until the discomfort ends; consult a
doctor if you believe necessary. You
should also review (i) the instruction
manual of any other device or media used
with this television and (ii) our website
the latest information. The vision of young
children (especially those under six years
old) is still under development. Consult
your doctor (such as a pediatrician or eye
doctor) before allowing young children to
watch 3D video images or play 3D video
games. Adults should supervise young
children to ensure they follow the
recommendations listed above.
• When using the simulated 3D function,
please note that the displayed image is
modified from the original due to the
conversion done by this television.
• View the TV in moderate light, as viewing
the TV in poor light or during long period
of time, strains your eyes.
• When using headphones, adjust the
volume so as to avoid excessive levels, as
hearing damage may result.
