Protecting the TV Screen (OLED TV)

Precautions to Protect the Screen from Damage

Image retention
OLED TV's are susceptible to image retention (burn-in) due to the characteristics of the materials used. Image retention may occur if images are displayed in the same location on the screen repeatedly or over extended periods of time. This is not a malfunction of the TV. Avoid displaying images that may cause image retention.

The following are examples of images that may cause image retention:

  • Content with black bars either on the top and bottom and/or the left and right sides of the screen. (for example, Letterboxed, 4:3 screen, Standard definition)
  • Static images such as photos.
  • Video games that might have static content in some part of the screen.
  • On-screen menus, programme guides, channel logos etc.
  • Static content from applications.
  • On-screen tickers, such as those used for news and headlines.

To reduce the risk of image retention:

  • Sony recommends that you turn off the TV normally by pressing the power button on the remote control or the TV.
  • Fill the screen by changing [Wide mode] to eliminate the black bars. Select [Wide mode] other than [Normal].
  • Turn off the OSD (On Screen Display) by pressing the (Info/Text reveal) button, and turn off the menus from connected equipment. For details, refer to the instruction manuals for the connected equipment.
  • Avoid displaying static images with bright colours (including white), clocks or logos on any portion of the screen.
  • Set the picture settings based on the ambient conditions. The Standard Picture is recommended for home use and when viewing content that often displays the station logos, etc.

The TV has following features to help reduce/prevent image retention.

Panel refresh
A panel refresh will adjust the panel uniformity. Panel refresh can be performed and should only be used when image retention is very noticeable.

  • The Panel refresh function may affect the panel. Do not perform Panel refresh more than once a year as it may affect the usable life of the panel.
  • Panel refresh takes about one hour to complete.
  • A white line may be displayed on the screen during the Panel refresh, this is not a malfunction of the TV.
  • Panel refresh will only work when the room temperature is between 10 ºC and 40 ºC.

Pixel shift
Automatically moves the image on the screen to prevent image retention.

Other feature
The screen brightness is automatically reduced when displaying still images, clocks, bright colours or logos etc.

Using TV as Part of Audio System

Troubleshooting

General troubleshooting for issues like: black screen, no sound, frozen picture, TV does not respond, or network is lost, do the following steps.

  1. Restart your TV by pressing the power button on the remote control for about five seconds. The TV will restart. If the TV does not recover, try unplugging the AC power cord (mains lead) then press the power button on the TV and release it. Wait for two minutes, and plug in the AC power cord (mains lead).
    Or, press the power button on the TV for about 40 seconds until the TV turns off.
  2. Refer to the Help menu by pressing HELP on the remote control.
  3. Connect your TV to the Internet and perform a software update. Sony recommends you to keep your TV software updated. Software updates provide new features and performance improvements.
  4. Visit Sony support website (information provided at the end of this manual).

When you plug in the TV, the TV may not be able to turn on for a while even if you press the power button on the remote control or the TV.
It takes time to initialize the system. Wait for about one minute, then operate it again.

The remote control does not function

  • Replace the batteries.

The parental lock password has been forgotten

  • Enter 9999 for the PIN and enter the new PIN.

The screen becomes darker while watching TV

  • If the whole image or part of the image remains still, the screen brightness will be gradually reduced to prevent image retention. This is not a malfunction of the TV.

You are concerned about image retention

If the same image is displayed repeatedly or for long periods of time, image retention may occur. To reduce image retention, we recommend that you turn off the TV normally by pressing the power button on the remote control or the TV.

Note

  • Perform Panel refresh only when image retention is particularly noticeable. Avoid performing Panel refresh more than once a year because it may affect the usable life of the panel.
  • Images that include clocks, logos and bright colours (including white) easily cause image retention. Avoid displaying these types of images for long periods of time, otherwise image retention may occur.

A white line appears on the screen

  • The Panel refresh has been performed. A white line may be displayed on the screen during the Panel refresh. This is not a malfunction of the TV. Panel refresh starts after the TV is turned off and takes about one hour to complete.

The message [Panel refresh did not finish...] is displayed

When i) the TV is turned on, ii) the AC power cord (mains lead) is unplugged, or iii) the room temperature falls outside of the range between 10 ºC and 40 ºC during the Panel refresh, the Panel refresh is not completed. Please avoid the above three conditions during the Panel refresh.
