Precautions
On safety
• A nameplate indicating operating voltage, power
consumption, etc. is located on the rear of the unit.
• Should any solid object or liquid fall into the cabinet,
unplug the unit and have it checked by qualified personnel
before operating it any further.
• Unplug the unit from the wall outlet if it is not to be used
for several days or more.
• To disconnect the AC power cord, pull it out by grasping
the plug. Never pull the cord itself.
Cleaning
Be sure to unplug the power cord before cleaning the display.
On cleaning the display
Do not allow hard objects to scrape, or pound the display
screen surface, or allow objects to hit the screen surface
because that can damage the screen surface.
The display screen has a special surface treatment.
Follow the instructions below to prevent impair performance
because of improper handling when cleaning.
• Gently remove any dust from the screen surface with a soft
cloth. A cleaning cloth or cloth for wiping glasses is
preferred.
• If it is excessively dirty, clean the screen surface with a
soft cleaning cloth slightly dampened with water.
• Never use alcohol, benzine, thinner, acid or alkaline
cleaning solvent, abrasive cleaners, or chemically-treated
cloths because they will damage the screen surface.
Cleaning the cabinet
• Gently wipe off stains using a dry, soft cloth. Wipe off
grimy stains using a cloth slightly moistened with a mild
detergent, then wipe the area again using a dry, soft cloth.
• Do not use alcohol, benzine, thinner or insecticide. Doing
so may damage the finish of the surface or remove the
markings on the unit.
• There is a danger that the screen will be damaged if wiped
with a cloth that is dirty.
• Allowing the unit to come into prolonged contact with
rubber or plastic products may alter the unit or cause the
protective coating to come off.
On the LCD panel
• Keeping the LCD panel facing toward the sun for a long
time will damage the panel. Take this into account when
you install the unit outdoor or by a window.
• Do not forcefully press or scratch the LCD screen. Do not
place objects on the screen. Doing so may disrupt the
display or damage the LCD screen.
• You may find that the screen is showing horizontal stripes
or that it has afterimage. The screen may also look darker
when using the unit in a cool environment. These do not
indicate a screen malfunction. The screen will return to
normal when the ambient temperature is higher.
• If a static image is displayed for a long time, screen burn
or a residual image may occur. A residual image will
disappear over time. If ghosting occurs, use the
screensaver function, or use some kind of video or
imaging software to provide constant movement on the
screen. If light ghosting (image burn-in) occurs,it may
become less conspicuous, but once burn-in occurs, it will
never completely disappear.
• The panel surface, cabinet or frame may warm up during
use.This does not a problem.
Bright spots and dark spots on the LCD
screen
Although the LCD screen is manufactured by high
technology with an effective resolution of at least 99.99%, it
may show dark spots (pixel defects) or bright spots (red,
blue, green, etc.) that are continuously lit or flashing. These
are phenomenon of LCD screens that generated sometimes
by pixel defects. These may occur after the device has been
used for an extended period of time.
These are not screen malfunctions.
On installation
• Always verify that the unit is operating properly before
use. SONY WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR DAMAGES
OF ANY KIND INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO,
COMPENSATION OR REIMBURSEMENT ON
ACCOUNT OF THE LOSS OF PRESENT OR
PROSPECTIVE PROFITS DUE TO FAILURE OF THIS
UNIT, EITHER DURING THE WARRANTY PERIOD
OR AFTER EXPIRATION OF THE WARRANTY, OR
FOR ANY OTHER REASON WHATSOEVER.
• Allow adequate air circulation to prevent internal heat
build-up. Do not place the unit on surfaces (rugs, blankets,
etc.) or near materials (curtains, draperies) that may block
the ventilation holes.
• Do not install the unit in a location near heat sources such
as radiators or air ducts, or in a place subject to direct
sunlight, excessive dust, mechanical vibration or shock.
• When you install multiple equipment with the unit, the
following problems, such as malfunction of the remote
control, noisy picture, noisy sound, may occur depending
on the position of the unit and other equipment.
On repacking
Do not throw away the carton and packing materials.
They make an ideal container in which to transport the unit.
When shipping the unit, repack it as illustrated on the carton.
If you have any questions on this unit, contact your
authorized Sony dealers.
On the illustrations
The illustrations of the display in the Operating Instructions
are of the FWD-46B2.

Recommendations on
Installation
Provide an ample amount of space around
the display
• To prevent internal heat buildup from sealing off the
display, make sure to ensure proper ventilation by leaving
open the minimum amount of space around the display, as
illustrated below.
• The ambient temperature must be 0 °C to 40 °C (32 °F to
104 °F). Be careful when installing the display near a
ceiling. The temperature there can become much higher
than the normal, lower-level room temperature.
• When using the stand, you use the applicable Tabletop
Stand SU-S02 (not supplied).For the fitting method, see
the installation manual of the Tabletop Stand.
• Consult with Sony qualified personnel for wall mount
installation.
• Regarding the installation of hardware such as brackets,
screws, or bolts, we cannot specify the products. Actual
installation is up to the authorized local dealers. Consult
with qualified Sony personnel for installation.
• While the display is on, a certain amount of heat builds up
inside. This can cause burns. Avoid touching the top or
rear of the display when it is powered on or just after it has
entered standby mode.

Preparations for Using
the Network Functions
Precautions
• The software specifications of this display are
subject to change for improvements without notice.
• Screens shown by application software may differ
slightly from the illustrations shown in this manual.
• For safety, connect the port of this display only to a
network where there is no danger of excessive
voltage or voltage surges.
• The steps described in this manual are guaranteed
only for use under the following environment
conditions.
Operating system:
Microsoft Windows XP/Windows Vista/
Windows 7
Browser:
Microsoft Internet Explorer 7.0 or later
• To ensure security on the network, setting a user
name and password is recommended. For
information on how to make these settings, see the
section “Setup screen” (page 35).
For security settings, refer to your network
administrator.
Setting an IP address
The display can be connected to a network with
10BASE-T/100BASE-TX LAN cable.
When connected to a LAN, the IP addresses of the
display can be set using one of the following two
methods. Consult your network administrator
regarding details about IP address selection.
• Assigning a fixed IP address to the display
Normally this method should be used. Note that in
default setting, the display is set to obtain an IP
address automatically.
• Automatically obtaining an IP address
If the network to which the display is connected has
a DHCP server, you can have the DHCP server
automatically assign an IP address. Note that in this
case the IP address may change every time the
display in which the display is installed is turned on.
Before setting the IP address, connect the LAN cable
to the display to establish the network. After about 30
seconds, turn on the display, and then start making the
desired settings.
