These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:

  • Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
  • Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
  • Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.
  • Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.

  1. This device may not cause interference.
  2. This device must accept any interference, including interference that may cause undesired operation of the device.

To prevent radio interference to the licensed service, this device is intended to be operated indoors and away from windows to provide maximum shielding. Equipment (or its transmit antenna) that is installed outdoors is subject to licensing.

High-power radars are allocated as primary users (i.e. priority users) of the bands 5250-5350 MHz and 5650-5850 MHz and that these radars could cause interference and/or damage to LE-LAN devices.

Notice for customers in the United States of America and Canada
This equipment complies with FCC/IC radiation exposure limits set forth for an uncontrolled environment and meets the FCC radio frequency (RF) Exposure Guidelines and RSS-102 of the IC radio frequency (RF) Exposure rules. This equipment should be installed and operated keeping the radiator at least 20 cm or more away from person's body (excluding extremities: hands, wrists, feet and ankles). This device and its antenna(s) must not be co-located or operating with any other antenna or transmitter except Grant condition.

Before 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. See "Installing the TV to the Wall" if you want to mount the TV to a wall. 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 (not supplied) and the supplied screws to complete the task, refer to the Setup Guide. 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.
  • Correct hand placement while carrying the TV is very important for safety and to avoid damage.
    Before setting up your TV
  • Ensure your TV has adequate ventilation, refer to the safety documentation.
  • 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.

Securing the TV

warningSony 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.
  • Install the TV so that the TV's Table-Top Stand does not protrude out from the Stand (not supplied). If the Table-Top Stand protrudes out from the Stand, it may cause TV set to topple over, fall down, and cause personal injury or damage to the TV.
    Preventing the TV from Toppling Step 1
    Preventing the TV from Toppling Step 2
  • Route all AC power cords and connecting cables so that they are not accessible to curious children.

Consider the following measures when securing your TV to a Stand (not supplied).

  1. Secure the Stand for the TV. Make sure the 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 Stand.
    Recommended Measures to Secure the TV Step 1
  1. Secure the TV to the Stand. Use the optional hardware listed as follows (not supplied):
  • M6 machine screws (screwed into the TV's rear cover).
  • A screw or similar (attach it to the Stand).
  1. 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.
    Recommended Measures to Secure the TV Step 2

    The length of the M6 machine screw differs depending on the rope or chain diameter. Please refer to below illustration.
    The length of the M6 machine screw
  1. Anchor the TV to the wall by using bolts, wall anchor and chain (or rope).
    Anchor the TV to the wall Step 1
    Anchor the TV to the wall Step 2

    Please refer to below illustration for M6 eye bolt length.
    M6 eye bolt length

NOTE:

  • Your TV is shipped with screws attached to the rear of the TV depending on the TV model. (They are fastened in the screw holes for wall mounting.) Be sure to remove the upper two screws prior to anchoring the TV to a wall.
  • Securing the TV to the Stand without securing the TV and the Stand to the wall provides minimum protection against the TV toppling over. For further protection, be sure to follow the three measures recommended.
